Mrs. Nora Long Magary, 88, widow of John Magary, died about 3 Monday afternoon at the summer home of her brother, Maurice A. Long, at Cape Vincent.  Mrs. Magary had been in ill health for three years as the result of a shock. While she had been partially incapacitated since, she had been critically ill only since Wednesday. Death was due to cerebral thrombosis.
Mrs. Magary was born October 9, 1862, in Canandaigua, to the late John and Catherine Linehan Long, natives of Ireland. At the age of 27 she was married to John Magary at Canandaigua. After the marriage the couple moved to Rochester where Mr. Magary was a hardware merchant for many years.
She spent most of her life in Rochester. Her husband died there about 30 years ago. Six years ago she moved to Erie, Pa., where she lived with a brother, William R. Long. About three and a half years ago she came to Watertown. She spent the summers at the home of brother at Cape Vincent and the winters at his residence at 1212 State Street.
Surviving are three brothers, Maurice A. Long and Matthew D. Long, both of Watertown, and William R. Long, Erie, Pa., and a sister, Miss Mary J. Long of this city.
 Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. from the Long summer home at Cape Vincent. A solemn high mass will be celebrated half an hour later in St. Vincent de Paul's church at Cape Vincent. Rev. Robert D. Duford, pastor, assisted by Rev. E. H. Bernier of Chaumont and Rev. J.

 MATTHEW LONG EXPIRES AT 84  -   Well Known Salesman Ill Since February 18  - Rites Wednesday
Matthew D. Long, 84, 1212 State Street, a salesman for more than 50 years, died Sunday morning at 8:40 in the Mercy hospital, where he
had been a patient almost continuously since February 18, when he underwent an operation. Mr. Long lived at the State street home for many
years with his cousin John A. Long.
Well known throughout this section and in central New York, Mr. Long had made his home here since 1912, when he and his brother, the
late Maurice A. Long opened a women's apparel shop on the north side of Public Square, where the Endicott Johnson shoe store was later located.
Mr. Long and his brother continued to operate the store until 1928, when they closed the business and Mr. Long returned to selling lady's coats and dresses on the road.  During recent years, Mr. Long was semi retired, but maintained his interest in selling, representing various mercantile organizations. He also worked on several inventions which he had hoped to patent.
Mr. Long was stricken ill, while visiting in Ogdensburg, February 15. He entered the A. Barton Hepburn hospital, Ogdensburg, where he remained for two days before returning here, entering the Mercy hospital February 18. He had a major operation a few days later. Mr. Long was discharged from the hospital following the operation, but re-entered it about a week later and remained there until his death.
In his younger years, Mr. Long was interested in baseball. His father, John Long, died when he was an infant in Canandaigua, where Mr. Long was born. Mr. Long pitched for the old Syracuse Shamrocks, a fine semi-pro nine,  having a number of players, including Bill Dineen, one time major league umpire, as his teammate.
Mr. Long attended St. John the Baptist parochial school in Syracuse and also pitched baseball for the school nine. He later entered Notre Dame university at South Bend, where he was a hurler on the varsity club.
After leaving Notre Dame at the end of his junior year, Mr.Long started as a traveling salesman, making his headquarters, in Cleveland, O., until he came here in 1912 to enter business with his brother.
While living in Syracuse he was a member of the well known Sour Puss club, a fun organization composed of outstanding business and
professional men, which was headed by Nick Peters, Syracuse clothing store operator and manufacturer of men's garments.
Mr. Long at one time owned Restland, a large summer home at Cape Vincent. He also owned property on Wilson Bay, near Cape Vincent,
where Jesuit fathers spent summer vacations. The property was later named Dablon point through Mr. Long's efforts, marking the place where the first Jesuit priests to visit this territory landed.
Mr. Long was the son of the late John and Catherine Linehan Long. He was born March 23, 1879, in Canandaigua. At the age of nine, his mother and children, nine in all, moved to Syracuse, where he spent his youth. He later made his home in Cleveland, and then in Syracuse again before coming to Watertown.  Mr. Long was the last of his family. He is survived by nephews, nieces and cousins.
The body has been taken to the Wilcox and McCallen funeral home, where friends can call this evening and on Tuesday. The funeral will be held Wednesday morning at 10 from Holy Family church, where a requiem high mass will be celebrated. Burial will be made in St. Vincent de Paul cemetery in Cape Vincent.

IN CHAPIN -  The residence of Richard Wheatley on the Orleans Road was burned to the ground about eight o'clock Sunday morning. Mr. Wheatley lived alone and is seventy four years of age.  For many years he has been so crippled with rheumatism that he has had very little use of his legs, having to use two canes. It just happened that a neighbor who is a relative living across the road from Mr. Wheatley noticed the smoke and it was with difficulty he was able to drag Mr. Wheatley from the burning building. He was burned on the left leg and hand and feels very fortunate to have escaped at all.  Neighbors responded quickly also the chemical department from Canandaigua, but the fire was beyond control. Mr. Wheatley is for the present residing with his niece and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Cole.

But This Was 100 Year Ago - Traded Farm Products for Home Necessities in Groceries, Dry Goods and Chewing Tobacco


An old account book has just come to light giving all the transactions a farmer had at the little country store where he did his trading.  Samuel STODDARD was farming near Pinckney Corners, exactly 100 years ago.  Pinckney Corners was near the present village of Copenhagen, Lewis County, New York.

In eight months covered by this record, from January to August 1831, STODDARD used exactly one dollar in cash.  His store bill for himself and his family ran up to $33.78.  Farmers then were literally jacks of all trades. So here is the way STODDARD paid his store bill; that is, these were the commodities STODDARD disposed of to the storekeeper, and the prices he received for them: Forty nine pounds of butter, at 14 cents, $6.86; three thousand shingles, at $1.50, $4.50; two skins, $1.25; two cords of wood, $1.225 and one dollar in cash.

Shingles were cheap in those days.  So was wood.  STODDARD grew most of his own food.  In fact, his food bill for eight months was only $2.83.  It was made up of these items: Tea, 2 3/4 pounds, $1.10; sugar, one pound, $.14; molasses, 1/2 gallon, $.25; butter, 1 1/2 pounds, $.19; fish, 10 1/2 pounds of codfish, $.63; 11 1/2 pounds of haddock, $.52.

STODDARD sold butter in June for 14cents.  He bought a little in February at 12 cents.  So we judge he bought poor butter.  He was strong for fish.  He was fond of chewing tobacco, using 3 pounds and 11 ounces which cost him $1.29

The main expense was cloth, $15.00.  Only one cake of soap was bought, "millinery soap", 10 cents.  The only outlay for the kitchen was 50 cents for 6 tumblers.  For wearing apparel we find a few outlays such as these: One bonnet, $1.63; 1 pair shoes, $1.25; 1 pair shoes, $1.00; 1 pair baby shoes, $.25.  Then there is this item, 5 1/2 yards of ribbon, 56 cents.  Calico, gingham and sheeting were the principal cloths bought.  One luxury was of a 3/4 yard of lace for 3 cents.  During these 8 months no farmers sold any eggs at this store.

So Samuel STODDARD lived, carried on, reared his family and found life satisfying.  There are many old account books and old letters which tell the story of old York State pioneers, and tell us about the prices then prevailing.  Professor James E. BOYLE, of  the department of agricultural economics and farm management at Cornell University, Ithaca, is anxious to get in touch with these old records.  Owners of (cut off)
