Susquehanna County - The State Board of Pardons has refused to grant a pardon to Joseph Drinker, the slayer of Banker Cooper. He was thought to be an unsafe man to be at large. ANDA Binghamton paper says there will be a great deal of tobacco raised in the vicinity of that city the coming year. The' 1 armors who raised a crop last year did exceedingly well. Tobacco does not exhaust the soil more than hops or corn, and a good home market is found in Binghamton. About the only secret of success is in curing the product after harvesting. AND The indications are that the summer birds of fashion and leisure will fly to the mountains this summer instead of to the seashore. The cholera microbe starves to death upon the hills but fattens at tide level the doctors are so advising their clients and of course it goes.
