The "lads and lasses" ean " a Haying go" to-morrow, with the usual overcoats and warm wraps. The report that the court house steps were to be painted red, white and bine is pro-neoBced incorrect. The farmers say they are in need of- men, and every prominent corner on our streets is a crowded intelligence office. Banditti stockings are the last and of course it is expected they will cause every one to stop upon the highway. J. Z. little commences his engagement at the opera house this evening, appearing in the sensational play of " Roving Jack." Next Thursday the Rochester Presbytery will take into consideration the request of Dr. Morris of Calvary church, to resign his charge. The monopoly of the entire water power "i Niagara Fails upon the American side of the river wilL be sold at public auction tomorrow. On Saturday Detective Burchell arrested Henry Isehburg, against whom he had a warrant charging him with the commission of assault and battery. Those who would like to know how sweetly tLe birds sing ought to work all night oa a morning paper. They would then be op in time to hear the concert. The tl social club of Albion, composed of a number of young gentlemen in that Tillage, are giving regular parties, which are spoken of as extremely pleasant. Yesterday afternoon was bright and pleasant, and hence hundreds who wished to take a kind of sober, religious stroll, walked out to Scio street to look at the new base ball grounds. Business men who have acquired a reputation for generosity have commenced practicing a hardened expression of the features in anticipation of the annual visits of pic-nic ticket sellers. Birch, Warn bold & Back us 's San Francisco minstrels are to appear in Corinthian hall some time next month, from which announcement the reader will readily infer that there is fun ahead. A stuttering men trying to read the long names in the telegraphic dispatches from the east furnishes more cheap and innocent amusement to the square inch than any entertainment yet devised. -We understand that a number of colored young ladies and gentlemen are at present at-ta&disg the fraa academy preparing themselves to go south and assist in teaching and elevating those of their own race. Saturday noon Mortimer A. Cram, a little fellow about five years old, was killed by the failing of a large stone, while playing in the lumber yard of Hulloway & Normington, corner Troup and Trowbridge streets. W. J. Sheard, a salesman in the gun store of McCullough & Co. , on Main street bridge, was bitten on the right hand by a dog brought into the store to be muzzled, on Friday last. Tee wound was dressed by Dr. Pi est on. A public social will be held at Good Templars' hall to-morrow evening, for the benefit of the Good Samaritan society. A pleasant programme of exercises has been prepared, including refreshments served by the ladies. The base ball season will be formally l- opened in this city to-morrow and our citisms may expect a fine game between the new club and the old Rochesters. They will play for the first time on the new Scio street grounds, which are now completed. Eimira saloon keepers are advertising their temperance drinks, as indeed they are obliged if we may believe the reported fact that 20, COG people have signed the pledge in that city. A gold badge was presented to one of the prominent reformers Saturday evening. A Syracuse bummer has, he thinks, found the true way to become temperate Formerly be took his whisky straight, but the Other day he signed the pledge to hereafter mix it with watt. By gradually diluting the whisky he expects to get down to a full water basis in about tec years. A little south vest of a very red nose Kate Ryan wears a blue ribbsn: but no one would recognise its color, wt ch has been somewhat obliterated in consequence of too frequent contact with little drops of whisky as they fell from Kate's lips. Kate's periodical drunks average about three to every two days of time which passes, bhe is again in jail. Let Rochester blow about its champion base bail club, but we can knock the socks clear off that town at polo. Buffalo Express. Doubtless Buffalo could knock the socks from us, if it should proceed in the proper manner, but we should be unable to retaliate in the same way, if there be any truth in report, for we could not knock what there was not. The Troy Times says: " Mr. Hchooley, one of the counsel who defended Rufus B. Stiiiroan at his recent trial in Rochester for murder, was in this city yesterday in company with two gentlemen of that city. Mr. Schcoley expects to obtain at least a commutation of Btiilman's sentence, and says fltrecaens efforts will be made for a n?w trial. The impression in Hochester is that the prisoner will not be hung." Yesterday the highest temperature was 62; the lowest 50", with slowly rising barometer, tight to brisk variable winds, and fair to cloudy weather. Mean daily barometer, 89 V7; mean daily thermometer, 5o'; mean daily relative humidity 62 per cent. Blowly rising barometer, slight changes ia temperature, calm to brifck variable winds, and clear and partly cloudy weather, with areas of light rain and snow, were reported from the wast at midnight. There was a time when it was the delight of the village oracle to surround himself with an admiring group and read aloud the news of the day, interspersed with sage comments axd reflections of his own, but those days are passed, fio longer is his voice heard in the tavern, dit'&em mating knowledge to all around, but away off in the corner he may be seen poring over the newspapers in toe at tempt to get some idea of the eastern war and straggling with the pronunciation of such worus as rlydieu.ob&kog. So therm. On Friday evening of this week the inimitable comedian Botfaem appears in Corinthian hall in an entirely new comedy by Henry J. Byron entitled "A Hornets nest." The comedy has been presented over 150 times and critics say it deserves to be placed beside Mr. Sothern's wonderful creation of Dundreary. . The acts consist of Tiirw buzzes and a stinger" and doubtless al who hear the comedy will be stung into paroxysms of laughter. If there is any man on earth that can discover the business end of a joke, that man is Mr. Bothern and his audience will find it out. The support will be furnished by Mr. Bothern'sown company selected by him with great care. Concert at Brack port Professor A. J. Warner of Lima, in contusion of bis very interesting singing school held at Brock port the past winter, gave one of grexd vocal concerts at the chapel of the normal school on Thursday evening last to a crowded house. The concert was one of the most pleatant affairs of the season and everyone seemed highly pleased with the production of the evening. The concert consisted of anthems, choruses, quartette, duetto, solos, etc. Leake, at the . K. Charcb, There was a large attendance at the Alex-der street M. S. church last evening in fact each of the aisles was filled with chairs, and every inch of available sitting room was utilised. Every young man who could possibly effect an entrance to the church in company with his most intimate young lady friend, did so, hoping that perchance she topic of the sermon might afford him an opportunity to nod his bead ominously at toe aforesaid young lady, and sagely remark: ' I told you sol" Mr. Leake is a speaker of considerable talent, and seems to be gifted with the faculty of adding spicy incidents and anecdotes to bis more sober expressions of thought, which has a tendency to attract and hold the undivided attention of his hearers throughout an address. He chose as a topic for last e venire's ; discussion the tenth Terse of the thirty hrst chapter of Proverbs, 'Her price is far above rubies." Mr. Leake said he was well aware of the delicacy attendant upon a discussion of the duties and the obligations of woman in society. Indeed every phase of the woman element of society had been of great interest to the whole human family ever since Adam first awoke in the. garden and found a beatiful creature by his side. In every age woman had been praised by the historian, sung by the poet, painted by the artist, and painted, alas, too frequently by herself ! But largely as she had been noticed, perhaps there was no clase of questions which had been so unjustly and inadequately discussed as the duties, responsibilties, virtues and follies of woman. His subject treated exclusively of woman in society, and certainly society without women would be a very dry affair. Since the gentler sex were so important in society and so absolutely in-dispensible to it, they were largely responsible for the condiiion of society, be that condition good or bad. Ever since Ere worried her mind as to how she would pattern the first apron she wore, woman had given an abundance of attention to the various modes and styles which then and now were given each importance in the make-up of her dress. Woman had chosen for herself the shapes of the garments she would wear, and it therefore become her to avoid making them in such a manner as to wrench and compress her entire system until her form appeared Tery much like the inverted funnel of the liquor dealer. Referring to the dress and protection of ladies' feet, he said it was a Tery brave woman who would dare to appear upon the streets with her feet clad in thick-soled, high-top boots, even for the sake of protecting her health from exposure. And then, while men were constantly having the hair upon their heads clipped for the sake of keeping the brain cool, woman was not sat h fit d even with the wealth of flowing hair with which nature had endowed her, but she must also call the hemp-field into requisition, and even go down to the charnal house of the dead, in order to get enough stuff together for covering up the head to a suf ficient thickness. In this country the first question which would be asked, before one person of society would condescend to make the acquaintance of an other was, "How much are you worth f But in considering the nobler and more worthy aspects of woman's character, he said she might do a great and inestimable work in elevating the poor and lowly of her own sex to such positions as they ought to occupy in society, instead of being left an easy prey to the passions of libertines and unprinci palled rascals among the sterner sex. No woman in America occupied a position of greater influence, either for good or bad, on the customs and usages of American society, than Mrs. Rutherford B. Hayes, and yet this woman, in all her magnificent grandeur, had not hesitated to proclaim that never, at any reception over which the should ever be called upon to preside, should the wine-cup be introduced; and well were it for American society if such a woman might always occupy a position In which she might set so auspicious and worthy an example. He should not forget, however, in all the criticisms he was making upon their prevailing characteristics, to say that none but women could ever have worked to such good advantage in charitable work, and that her careful and faithful attendance in the sick-room had done what it was not possible for the hand of man to accomplish. He delighted that woman had been so great a helper in making even the path down into the valley of tne shadow seem paved with a polden sunshine, and with sun bcundUess posei bill ties for the ac j com push men is of gooa witnm ner power, now much greater the blame that might rightly be beajed upon women if they neglected their high calling for tue sake of drees and fashion. Well was it for young men and women who had noble Christian mothers, to whom they might lock for worthy examples, not only in txe graces of Christianity, but also in the practices of their daily lives. These were such women as those referred to in the text as beipg valued " far above rubies.' THE STATE LI!tH ROAD An Agreement at Last A fleeted Work Alone tne Line to be Kesumed To-day. The negotiations which have been going on between Mr. Waterman, of Philadelphia, and Mr. Leighton, of this city, and Henry A. Taylor, of New York, in retard to the diffar- j ences existing between them on State-line rc alters, culminated satisfactorily on tSatur- day by the transfer to Mr. Waterman of Mr. Leighton's Interest. Mr. Waterman arrived here on Friday the 20th hist, and remained until Thursday last when on account of pressing business engagements at Philadelphia, he returned to that city, but Colonel WeistUng represented him in continuing the negotiations which we may say were practically successful on Thursday, and en Batuday the papers were signed by Mr. Leighton and Mr. j Taylor, and sent to Philadelphia for the ap- proval and signature of Mr. Waterman. As I he substantially had agreed to them before j leaving, there is no doubt but he will ratify at j once. Bo confident was his representative that he would do so that the sub -contractors, VanBuzen and Wood, were directed to resume work on the road to-day, and they will do so. The intention is to push the work o f construction rapidly, and we are assured fc that in this respect there will not be any reason for faultfinding by those interested in the completion of the road. The full text of the argeement entered into i on Saturday is not made public, but it is un derstood to contain one restriction which should have been a part of the original contract under which the bonds were sold to Mr. Taylor. The bonds yet remaining in the Fidelity Trust company, of Philadelphia, belonging to the contractors can only be drawn out as the iron is delivered to the company on the line of the road for the purpose of construction. This is a valuable safeguard and practically insures the completion of the road. Ail the iron necessary is already manufactured and shipments will commence at once, in common with all our citisens we are heartily glad that the differences ajc amicably settled and we trust we shall be called note the progress of the work instead of narrating the quarrel indulged in of late between parties whose in-terefete seemed to be antagonistic. The directors have labored assiduously to bring about a reconciliation and have the work resumed, and we trust that harmony and good feeling will soon prevail. The people who have aided tiiis road by taxing themselves are entitled to have the road completed. Mr. Waterman, we are confident, will receive the hearty cooperation not only of our citisens but of those along the line of the road in the work he has undertaken. Swindlers. On Friday afternoon last two men, who gave the names of Bamuel Williams and John Reynolds, visited the liquor store of Josiah .Newman, at 112 Front street, and represented to the proprietor that they had just purchased the property on Mill street, known as the Toronto house. Reynolds represented to one of Mr. Newman's clerks that himself and partner were desirous of restocking the house they had just bought with a quantity of choice liquors. After talking with him for a short time, they gave the clerk an order for the delivery at the Toronto house of various kinds of liquor?, amounting in value to -rJ. The salesman sup posed the transaction had been done in good faith and accordingly prepared to deliver the goods. Just then the ir?l,Tlr nr the store came ia, and after hearing of the affair he went to the Toronto house and made inquiry of Mr. McLean, proprietor of the hotel, of whom he learned that no such men had purchased his place, or even visited it with any such intention. It was afterwards learned that the same men also went to the cigar factory of C. & 6. G ticker, corner of Factory and Mill streets, where, under the same false representations, they ordered about 4,G00 of the best brands of cigars, which they left orders to have delivered at the Toronto house. Bicce these deceptive transactions neither of the men has been seen or heard from. They appeared to be Canadians, and though their swindling game worked financial injury to no one, they will be speedily placed under arreit if detected at a repetition of the swindle. rtUtftONAL It has been reported that James Cunningham was seriously ill, but this we are assured is a mistake. He is " as well and hearty aa ever he was in his life.9 John E. Owens and company wera at the Brackett house last night. They play at Auburn this evening. i aaest ay Hsw. T. JJ.

For a separate and econd answer the said defendant, the city of Rochester, alleges that under and by virtue of certain special acts of the legislature of this state, to wit, chapter 387 of the laws of 1872, entitled " An act to supply the city of Rochester with pure and whulesome water," which act was thereafter further modified and regulated by certain other acta of tine legislature of the state, to wit, chapter 771 of the laws of 1872, entitled 44 An act to amend the several acts relating to the city of Rochester, also chapter 754 of the laws of 1873, entitled " An act to define and restrict the powers of the board of water commissioners of the city or Rochester," also chapter 649 of the laws of 1ST 4, entitled 11 An act to amend the several acta in relation to the city of Rochester;" also chapter 33, of the laws of 1875, entitled "An act supplementary to an act passed May 20, 1872, entitled " An act to amend the several acts relating to the city of Rochester," also chapter S9 of the laws of 1375, entitled "An act to amend an act entitled An act to amend the several acts relating to the city of Rochester," ' passed May 20. 1872, also chapter 563 of the laws of 1875, entitled .

Immediately thereupon the said board of water commissioners proceeded to have made and prepared surveys, maps and plans for procuring a supply of pure and wholesome water to the city of Rochester, pursuant to the requirements of said chapter 387 of the laws of 1872, together with estimates of the cost of the same, and submitted a report of the plan adopted by them and the estimate cost thereof to the mayor of the city, by whom the same was approved, to wit, before the 12th day of April, 1873. And this de fendant avers that the amount named by the said commissioners in their said estimates of the cost of said works so as aforesaid submit ted to and approved by the mayor was the sum of $2,224,000, and no more, of which James McDonald, hereinafter named, and the said plaintiff then and there had notice. On the 12th day of April, 1873, Roswell Hart, William H. Bowman, Charles C. Morse and Oilman H.

And this defendant further avers that before the commencement of this action the said board of water commissioners made other contracts and agreements for the construction of other water works than those described in schedule A, after a plan commonly known and called the Holly system of water works, and in tuch construction the said James Mac-Donald, 'and the plaintiff in his name, performed work and labor, and furnished materials on account of and by agreement with the said board of water commissioners at the same prices and on the same conditions in respect to the items of said work, labor, and materials as are specified in said schedules A and B. And this defendant, the city of Rochester avers that the said agreements, each and every one ot them, were made and executed by the said parties thereto without the co operation, approval, or sanction of this defendant and under the sole authority of the said board ot water commissioners, defined in and conferred by the said special laws of this state, and not other or dmerent. And this defendant further avers that the said plaintiff, in the name of the said James !

THIRD ANBWER. And for a separate and third answer to said complaint this defendant repeats the averments and statements in his aforesaid second amwer set forth, and thereupon further avers and states that the said board of water com missioners, in full execution of the said agreements made with the said James MacDonald, ana ox raeir ooiigauons to the plaintiff in that tehalf, to wit, before the commencement of this action, fully paid to the said James MacDonald and to the said plaintiff the sum of $2,547,446.88, in the aggregate, and at various dates and in divers sums, in full satisfaction and payment of the work and labor performed, goods, wares, merchandise, and materials furnished, moneys expended, and wrongs and injuries sustained; and each and every part thereof, and which are particularly set forth in said complaint. FOURTH A.58WIB. And, for a separate and fourth answer to said complaint, the defendant, the city of Rochester, repeats the averments in the said second answer and defence hereinbefore stated, so far as the same relate to the said special laws of this state ; the appointment of said board of water commisaioners; the issue of bonds upon the credit of this defendant; the borrowing of money thereon, and the execution of agreements by the said James Mac Donald; and thereupon the defendant further ! avers, that before the construction of said 1 water works was commenced by said James MacDonald, and the making of said agree- uents, the said plaintiff fraudulently and corruptly contriving and intending in divers ways to cheat and defraud this defendant, in the course of construction of said waterworks procured the said James MacDonald to make and execute the said agreements and to have them carried on and performed in his name, but for the sole profit and advantage of the plaintiff, and with intent id have the same immediately assigned by the said MacT?a&ld to the plaintiff, and did immediately thereafter procure the same to be so assigned before any work or labor or other thing had been done in course of performance thereof; without the knowledge or consent of the said board of water commissioners, or a majority of them, with the fraudulent intent to prevent, and he. did fraudulently prevent, the said James MacDonald from giving his personal attention to tha fulfillment of said contracts; and fraudulently to keep, and he did keep, the management and control thereof In his own hands and not of said MacDonald; all of which fraudulent actings and doings were done by the plaintiff without the knowledge or consent of the said board of water commissioners, and in disregard and violation of said agreements.

And in further execution of said false and fraudulent intent, falsely pretended to said board of water commissioners, while said work was progressing, that it was impracticable to lay the same safely so as to form a proper and permanent passage for water; all of which was false and well known to the plaintiff to be false, and thereby induced the said board of water commissioners to abandon the use of hard brick, as they had theretofore intended and expressed in their said estimates, to the advantage of said plaintiff and to the damage of this defendant of $88,000; and thereupon the said plaintiff falsely and corruptly colluded with one of the said water commissioners to have iron pipe substituted for said intended brick culvert and passage way for water, and falsely and fraud ulently pretended to said board of water commissioners that such pipe could not be provided at a lees price than ten cents per pound, when in truth and in fact he well knew, and so did the said commissioner with whom he was then fraudulently colluding as aforesaid to cheat and defraud this defendant also well knew, that said iron pipe could and would be provided at eight and one-half cents per pound, and in manner and by means aforesaid fraudulently induced and persuaded the said board of water commissioners to pay for said iron pipe at the rate of ten cents per pound. And thereupon the said plaintiff, under the false and fraudulent pretense that he was acting in behalf of and as agent for the said James MacDonald, proceeded to lay and did lay in said works iron pipe in place of hard-burned brick and along the trenches for a great distance, and received from the said board of water commissioners payment therefor at and after the rate of ten cents per pound out of the moneys so as aforesaid borrowed on the credit of this defendant, and which moneys in the aggregate exceeded the real value and cost of said iron pipe, as the same was provided by the said plaintiff in the name of said James MacDonald, in the sum of $66,000. And by reason of the premises this defendant demands judgment against the plaintiff for $154,000, by way of counterclaim; or as recoupment of the damages demanded by him in this action. SIXTH ANSWER.

In the proposed report you presented to Upton was not the item for superb met u re, iaehidtnfc iron, which you stated in your report to hi 417,, put iu $4.1,000 lesB, to-wit, the sum of I iio not rt-membe- the figures of the report. Watt Bot an item of passenger and freight station put down in your prepared report $ 1,.'AX) and in the actual report $.'(,. "Otl i I do not remember the (Igures of the report. Did not know whether he had prepared the report presented to Mr. Upton in his possession. On the pre' sen tat ion of the report Mr. I'pton refused to sign it, and suggested some other oftioer who knew more about tbe road than he did had better sign it. Tbis report was made up from papers and data in the office. Mr. McKaughton furnished some uf the papers and data. There might have been payments put into this report that occurred prior to lh74. Had part of the data in his offl.-e from which he made up ids report, had not the data by which all tbe Items in the construction account were made up; kept boobs since he had been In the office relating to tbe canh of the road; kept one book with estimates, bills and vouchers ia it; he axso itept a siieet snowing the maintenance of way and the cost of the road ; had several other books beside paper, two copy books, letter book and bill book; presume he took tbe report presented to Mr. Up 'on away again: If not destroyed, it was still in oni'-e-could not explain the discrepancy of the $W 000 item hi the report signed by himself and Oliver Allen, and the one undented to Mr I n.n v... he did not kn-Jf there was any discrepancy or recollect the figures, Similar anawers were made by witness to the other items. Iid cot remember whether there were any changes in tbe two reports except to make the amount larger. He found the aecounts in a chaotic state and did the beet he could with them ;beHered he was appointe d superintendent on July nth; so this report would cover only two months of hta services; did not think the report would have the effect of increasing the iteniB of charges against the road, or diminish any discrepancy between the Mxrefpts and exinditures, as he did not believe it had anyUiiug to do with the treasurer's accounts. Donald McNaughton was next called to the witness stand. He said he had not the minutes of the board of directors; he could not get them, aa they were not in his control; they Were controlled by the company. A subpoena duces tru?. was iEsued by the court, returnable on Wednesday Subp-unaa were also issued for Oliver Allen and Eu,?ard Harris. A kngthy discussion then ensued in regard to the manner in which the investigation was conducted, iu object, the bonds, etc., in the course of which Mr. McNaughton said Mr. VanVoorhis had lied. An apology was demanded, when Mr. McNaughton said he would apologise to the court fur using such a strong expression, but he maintained that Mr. Van Voorhis was incorrect in his statement. After considerable further discussion In regard to the delivery of the bonds over to Taylor, in which Mr. McNaughton said the object of tbe investigation was evidently not to prove whether or not there had been any bribery attempted, but to secure evidence to use in civil actions, and adjournment was effected until Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock.

We were net then informed that Aderiel K. Webster, one of the Ephraim Dow gang, had also been arrested upon the same charge. Had we known this, it would have been a fact sufficient in itself to warrant the belief that somebody had been dealt with treacherously, and that (Mr. Morgan was probably one of the persons of whom Webster had taken a mean advantage. These facts have since come to light, and Mr. Morgan makes a straightforward statement to the effect that seme time since he was invited to go into a saloon in Brighton and have a'cigar with Webster. He accepted the invitatian, though with some hesitancy, and a short time afterward he was called upon to make an oath to the effect that tne cigars had been purchased as stated, whi-h he did, not as a partner of Webster, but because he was subpoenaed and compelled do so. These facts Mr. Morgan feels crB ;f-. he can fully verify, as well as some othtrt detrimental to Webster, on the ocn oil the examination of the case, which is aet own for Wednesday next. ' A Journalist's Novel. From the press of Dodd, Mead & Co., New York, has jit been issued a novel written by the well-kncwn journalist, Ausburn Towner, city editor of the Eimira Advertiser, and already orders have been received by the publishers sufficient to exhaust the first edition. ' Chedaye of Kotono " seems destined to meet with a flattering reception from the public, and we heartily congratulate the author upon the success of this his most pretentious literary effort. We nave not had the pleasure of seeing the book as yet, and so are unable to speak more fully of its content?, bat from the Eimira Gazette we take the following dedication of the work a manly and tender tribute to the beat friend a man ever bad: "At the feet of my mother I lay this, the first fruits of her gentle but persistent counsel; her loving, never -tiring encouragement. If the great public give but tbe faintest echo to tbe enthusiastic appreciation with which I know she will read every line herein, my desire will be reached, and the utmost expectations that I could entertain will be realised. Ausbubiv Towner. Another TOonnt Hope Suggestion. To the Editor of the Democrat and Chronids: Sm; I wish to make a suggestion through your columns that to my mind has an important bearing upon the proper management of Mount Hope cemetery. Under the present arrangement any poor man who is a lot-owner and has bills to settle at tbe cemetery office, for the care of grounds, etc., is now compelled to lose from two to three hours' time from his work in order to arrive at the oflice before the closing hour on week days. As the office is always closed on the Sabbath day, it is of course impossible to transact any business then. Inasmuch as Sunday is the only day upon which the laboring class can find time to visit the cemetery, it i?, we think, advisable either that the present office be kept open for an hour or two on the Sabbath, or that another oflice be established near the center of the city, and within access of lot-owners whose time is too valuable to lose. Alex. A n Important Restriction. In the answer, published elsewhere, of the city, in the case of George D. Lord vs. the city of Rochester, reference is made to the clause in tbe contract prohibiting assignments. Tbe clause mentioned ia as follows : The said party of tbe first part agrees that he will give his personal attention to the fulfillment of this contract, and that he will not sublet tbe aforesaid work, but will keep the same under his contral, and that he will not assign the same by power of attorney or otherwise, neither any of the moneys payable under this agreement, unless by and with the consent, in writing, of the board of water commissioners, or a majority of them, Grand Art Entertainment. A grand art entertainment for the benefit of the Mumford Baptist Bunday school and choir, will be given at the Baptist church in Mumford, to-morrow evening, and a mt enjoyable performance is anticipated.
