July 8 1892/1992

Great Bend - D. O'Keefe, of Great Bend, has recently started the business of making temperance drinks and is prepared to put out the best of goods.

Jackson - A stage driver had a western pony not long since when he called at the North Jackson post office it was not ready to start when the driver was ready. After several friendly efforts to get him to move Mr. Edson Barrett stuffed his mouth with saud [sod] taken up from the road and he soon was up and out, going at a rapid rate toward Jackson. Teamsters will probably do well to keep in mind the remedy, which we think is much to be preferred to the old Pennsylvania black whip.

Susquehanna - The Susquehanna Library is closed until further notice. The room is undergoing repairs. AND it is reported that our former townsman, J.W. Taylor has been elected secretary of the Chicago & Calumet Terminal Railroad secretary of the Calumet Canal and Improvement Co., and also of the Standard Steel and Iron Co

Union Dale - It is reported that me roads in "Forest City are rough enough to break the Ten Commandments. AND the Ladies' Aid Society of this place met at Charley Davis recently and enjoyed some excellent ice cream and had a good time generally; as anyone is sure to have when they go to see Mr. Davis and his better half.

Herrick Centre - Herrick was quiet the 4th, most of the young people going elsewhere.

Silver Lake - A number of tourists have already taken up their quarters at Quaker and Silver Lakes for the season, being driven to our beautiful resorts by the intense heat, and are at present enjoying the sublime scenery and refreshing breezes.

Liberty - Where is the Liberty correspondent?

Lawsville - A young cyclone struck Lawsville recently and tumbled things up in great shape. It took down nearly all of Mr. Dawley's orchard and quite a number of shade as well as fruit trees for Mr. Tingley, and also for George Lindsley and T.E. Potter The church sheds of the Methodist Church were unroofed. T.L. Smith and Fred Bailey's sheds were unroofed. One of Mr. Tingley's large store windows was broken and one of the creamery's windows blown in Trees in many places were blown into the street and fences were literally nowhere.

Forest City - Our City Fathers are having Main St. McAdamized from one end to the other. In some places they fill up 5 feet in order to get a grade; the broken rock from the mines is run on a temporary railroad the length of the street and dumped where wanted; this is a very economical way of grading and putting the streets in first-class condition. Thanks, gents, come down on the Rail Road St. next.
