Page 474 of the registration ledger for 1907 - 1918 contains the following list of gross receipts for 1893 - 1919. The total for 1916 was not entered due to the season ending abruptly when Byron A. Rising closed the hotel on August 22 due to his son's illness

The registration ledger contains a section for each registered party. Details of all charges are entered into the ledger. The table below summarizes other aspects of the 1907 - 1918 registrations. In 1913 they began the practice of grouping "one night stays" on a registration page for "Transient" guest. The first year, 1913, very few names were noted, making it difficult to count the individual parties included. The other columns of data are summarized as follows:

Season Begin:                   Earliest registration date for the year
Season End:                      Latest registration date for the year
# of Registered Parties:   Count of each group registered (singles, husband and wife, families, friends, etc) 
Transient Receipts:          Total for transient guests (included in Gross Receipts).
Transient Parties:             Number of obvious transient parties (not included in # of registered parties)

CHILD PARALYSIS SCARES TICONDEROGA AND HAGUE
Quarantines Imposed When Hague Case is Pronounced Infantile Paralysis

Stewart Rising, 15 years old, a son of Byron A. Rising, proprietor of the Rising House, a Hague summer hotel, is a victim of infantile paralysis. That he is a victim of the disease is the verdict of Dr. Prest, supervisor of the sanitary district, who examined the boy last Friday upon request of Dr. Cummins of Ticonderoga. Both of the boy's legs, are affected, the left very slightly and the right one apparently not very seriously. He is in bed, not walking around, as repeatedly rumored, and this morning it was reported that there is no change in his condition.
    As soon as the disease was pronounced infantile paralysis Mr. Rising notified his guests that he would close the hotel at once and canceled all his bookings. This action was not due to orders from Dr. Prest. On the contrary, Dr. Prest told him that he could keep the hotel open. This physician, who has made a special study of the disease, held that since the boy had been isolated for eight days before he saw him, and as not other cases had developed, all danger of infection, at least as far as this particular case was concerned, had passed. The father, however, desiring that his son, who had been confined in two remote rooms, should have more room concluded to close the hotel. That there is no danger of infection from the Rising boy case will, or should, allay the fears of the people of Hague and adjoining towns. There should, however, be no lessening of the precautionary measures that have been taken to prevent further spread of the disease.
    Quarantines have been in effect in the towns of Ticonderoga and Hague since last Friday. Children under sixteen years of age are not allowed to enter either town for the purpose of staying any length of time, though they are allowed to pass through either place. There is no restriction upon the going or coming of adults. Children under sixteen are [unreadable] and the pastors of various churches have been requested to close their Sunday schools and to keep such children from church services.

GRAPHITE.

Aug. 22 - Owing to the town of Hague being under strict quarantine, the cause being a case of infantile paralysis at the Rising House at Hague, there will be no entertainments whatsoever given at Echo Mountain hall until the quarantine is lifted. Sunday services, however, at the hall will go on as usual but, of course, children are expected to remain at home.
