June 09 1911/2011

Heart Lake - Frank Hutner, of Toronto, a large manufacturer of children's coats and capes, was a guest of Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Robinove last week. Mr. Hutner used to be a peddler in this locality, making headquarters for two or three years at W. A. Brown's, at Heart Lake, and will be remembered by a great many of the people he used to visit. But the road was not to hold him long, for he went to New York and began the manufacturing of children's garments, and met with instant success. He continued in New York for some time but when competition became severe, he left the field to the other fellows, and established his plant in Toronto, where he finds conditions much more favorable and today is firmly established with a good business. The boy who works, waits, and saves, and has added to these qualities, that of honesty, has always a chance for a place high upon the ladder in life's race, while the boy who does not make the most of is opportunities, must, and rightly remain near the bottom.

Brooklyn - All interested are requested to be present next Tuesday evening, June 13, at the final meeting of Rising Sun Company, No. 59, Order of American Boys. The Order was discontinued in favor of the Boy Scouts, on June 1. A means of disposing of the property will be decided on.

Thompson - Ralph A. Howard, one of the most prominent residents of Thompson and for many years secretary of the borough council, dropped dead on the street in front of his residence about 9 o'clock Saturday, June 3. Mr. Howard had not been well for some time and last night had a fainting spell but was feeling a great deal better this morning and started to go to town and had just got out on the street when he suddenly sank to the sidewalk and was dead before assistance could reach him.

Royal - Miss Hankinson, of Carbondale, Hotel Royal's Landlady's daughter, was in town Saturday and Sunday. She made our little town interesting with her vocal and instrumental music, while here. She is certainly a wonderful singer for a girl of her age. ALSO Royal is to be head quarters for City Auto parties this summer and fall.

Ararat - Our old and highly respected veteran, Geo. Burman, attended to placing the flags on the soldier's graves in Ararat cemetery. This has been Mr. Burman's duty for a number of years; still he is along in his seventy's. The work is done with the same neatness as years ago. [George H. Burman enlisted in Co. A, 56th Regiment on Oct. 4, 1861. He was captured at Bull Run, Aug. 29, 1862.]

Great Bend - The citizens of Hallstead and Great Bend are planning for a home coming welcome for the Hon. James T. DuBois, who has been the representative of the United States Government at Singapore for the past two years and now expects to arrive at his home in Hallstead about June 15th.

Susquehanna - While at work in the Erie roundhouse Friday, Patrick O'Brien, employed in the truck gang, had his leg caught between two wheels and was badly pinched. ALSO Robert W. Phillips, an Erie fireman, residing at Susquehanna, met with a serious accident at Ararat Summit last Friday morning. Mr. Phillips, in attempting to board his engine, missed his footing and fell beneath the wheels of the pony truck, which crushed the right leg. The injured man was taken to the S. H. Barnes Hospital. Erie Surgeon, C. D. Washburn, found that the member was so badly crushed that amputation above the ankle was necessary. Mr. Phillips is an industrious young man with a family.

Hop Bottom - Miss Christine Mathewson, of Factoryville, is giving instrumental music lessons to a class of about 15 pupils in this place, this week. Miss Mathewson is a graduate of music from Keystone Academy.

Bennett's Corners - Clarence Taylor and wife, of Lynn, were through here in his new auto and gave some of his friends a ride. The week previous Homer Young and R. L. Avery went to Philadelphia and brought up the new auto purchased by Mr. Taylor. It is a Maxwell, for which Mr. Young is agent.

Rushboro - Martha and Hazel LaRue, who have been attending State Normal school at Mansfield, have returned to their home here.

South Auburn - A young man who visits at South Auburn, semi-occasionally, left his horse in the church shed. Apparently the horse thought the visit too long, for it broke its fastenings and went home, a distance of two miles, without a driver, where it was found with everything all safe when the young man reached there.

Dimock - Several people from here attended the large barn raising at John Blakeslee's, near Springville, on Saturday.

New Milford - On June 7 occurred the marriage of Homer VanCott and Edna Chapman. ALSO - C. A. Garland, while working in Whitney's crate factory, had the misfortune to have his hand partially cut off. Mr. Garland is an elderly man and the shock was severely felt.

Silver Lake - The [pupils] of the Lady Jane Grey school of Binghamton were here for their annual outing last week.

Forest City - While playing ball in the valley, in the rear of his home, 10 year old Lester Clark was bitten in the leg by a dog belonging to a foreigner. The wound was promptly cauterized and the dog shot. Very proper treatment, all round.

South Montrose - If you see some distinguished looking people riding around the streets of Montrose in automobiles, you may take them for Americanized Chinese or Japanese; you will probably think they are members of distinguished families, who are here studying American customs, or in some scientific research. In all of which and other guesses, you will be mistaken. The fact is, they are Japanese servants at the Ballantine home, and they are clean, sensible and intelligent looking people.

Deaths of Civil War Veterans - Henry W. Linderman, at the home of his sister, Mrs. Edward P. Munger, Lake Ave., Montrose. When but a boy he answered his country's call to arms, and at the close of the Civil war was Captain of a battery of artillery attached to an Ulster Co., NY Regiment. Chas A. Carter died at LeRaysville, May 20, 1911, late of Co. H., 4th Pa. Reserve Infantry and 35th Regt. Pa. Volunteers., aged 72. He lived near Rushville nearly all his life.
