August 21 1891/1991

Susquehanna - The Cricket and Hancock [NY] ball clubs wrangled for supremacy at Beebe's Park last Monday. The Crickets, as usual, were victorious. Score 11 to 2. Editor White, of the Hancock Herald, witnessed the game and was disgusted with the result. He says the Crickets and an umpire can beat any club in America.

Auburn Corners- The picnic of the Patrons of Industry at Shannon Hill, last week, was a very pleasant affair. South Auburn, Jersey Hill and Shannon Hill, were well represented. A bounteous dinner was served by the ladies. Remarks were made by Revs. L.S. Squires, W.H. Stang and State Organizer A.E. Kelly. A drum and fife corps gave excellent music. One of the drummers, Joseph Benninger, drummed on the drum, which he has used for the past 56 years.

Herrick - Phillip Dunn had in his possession an old book which was printed in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1770. It was at one time in possession of the late James Dunn, one of our early pioneers, and a native of Scotland. On the cover is a diploma for his skills as a master workman as carpenter and joiner.
