December 1 1893/1993

Susquehanna - "Me and Jack," a wide-awake, sparkling little comedy, appeared in Hogan Opera House, Wednesday evening, to a fair sized audience. The Greco Roman wrestling was a special feature. AND Editor Birchard, of the Susquehanna Transcript is the owner of a fast horse, photographs of which he published last week. This horse has whiskers. Mr. Birchard is liable to run opposition to the Montrose Democrat in the horse business.

Jackson - The concert recently given by the Thompson Male Quartette was a success, and the effort made was highly appreciated. The instrumental selections were listened to attentively, and the singing by the Larrabee family was a Tine addition to the program. Miss Larrabee's solos were heartily encored. The recitations by Mrs. Martin and Mrs. C. Bryant of North Jackson, were entertaining. AND The old house on W.W. Popes farm in Gibson, Mr. J. Pickering thinks, was built 90 years ago, for he can' t remember when it was not there.

Glenwood - G.A. Grow has bought of F.I. Lott, Esq., one of his high bred colts to match one he already had. Now he drives a pair of fancy speeders.

Union Hill - [Gibson Twp.] J.M, Potter was around here the first of the week buying turkey Thanksgiving 10 cents per lb., alive. AND George Morgan wishes to state that he will sell all his personal property on his farm including 32 cows, 40 tons of hay, and all household goods on the 7th of December beginning at 9 a.m.

Lawsville - Doctor Brundage, from Wayne county, is moving to Lawsville and will occupy the house vacated by Mrs. Crandell. It will be remembered that his father was for many years the leading physician of both Liberty and Franklin. Dr. Brundage will practice both medicine and dentistry. AND There was a full house and a good debate at the Alliance Hall, on Wednesday of last week. The subject: Resolved that the cow is more useful than the horse, was decided in favor of the cow, by two points.

Harford - C.S. Johnson, F.A. Osborn, F.E. Carpenter, and B.D. Sherwood, are all thoroughly indisposed; well just about really sick. AND Mrs. D.M. Farrat, who has been sick a long time, is regaining her health. We understand that she is using Dr. Sanche's remedy, Oxydonor "Victory," a home treatment; she speaks very favorably of it.

Lynn - The boys serenaded the new married couple on the Hill, Monday evening, with horns, bells, tin pans, and guns, much to the annoyance of the neighbors.

Montrose - John Stout, a well known resident of this place departed this life early Friday morning after an illness of only two or three days. John's age is not exactly known, but it must have been in the neighborhood of eighty years. He was born a slave but, in company with three others, he ran away from his master and came to this place where he has resided for many years.

Little Meadows - Dick Davis is a man who is usually ready with a good story under almost any circumstance but last Friday morning when riding along past the residence of Rev. H.L. Ellsworth, the hind axle of his wagon broke, suddenly precipitating Mr. Davis to the ground although not seriously injuring him' it is related that for once Dick hadn't a word to say.

Susquehanna County - We have received from the publishers, the two great rival marches: "Protective Tariff Grand March," and "Free Trade Grand March." The former is by the well-known author, Will L. Thompson, of East Liverpool, Ohio. The latter is by Wm. Lamartime, an author of equal talent and both pieces are beautiful bright and showy marches of medium difficulty for the Piano and Organ. Price 40 cents each. They are for sale at all music stores or may be procured from Mr. Thompson at one-half price. One firm alone has ordered 15,000 copies. AND The chances are now that the Binghamton sports, et al, who witnessed the recent prize fight at Brackney, this county, will go unpunished. The authorities are moving with the slow and measured gait of a mule proceeding towards a peck of oats.
