Springville - Why is it that parents will let their children come up as they will and use such language as the little boy does that drives the cow through the street? It makes no difference if a lady is passing, it comes out all the same.
New Milford- A number of friends and neighbors of Mrs. H. Blanding called. Upon that lady recently, for the promise of doing her housecleaning, she having been ill for some time. Such deeds of kindness are worthy of mention.
South Gibson - Captain Owens, of South Gibson, has a pair of oxen that is worth owning. He hooks them to his mowing machine and manages with the simple words “whoa”, "haw”, and "gee" while he rides around, cutting down the swaths like any other man.
Hallstead - About 75 people assembled at Mrs. Henry Mericle's, Hallstead, recently on purpose to see a Night Blooming Cereus, which has blossomed for the first time. The flower, which measured 10 inches across, was pure white and lasted from six o'clock at night till six o'clock in the morning.
East Bridgewater - J.F. Gardner, while mowing last week, got off his mower to throw away some grass, when his horses took it in their heads to do some mowing, on their own hook, and took a trip around the field on the double quick. No bones broken
Brooklyn - There is to be a public platform dance in Bullard’s grove, Wednesday eve. Let every one who likes to do the fantastic come and enjoy themselves.
