June 24 1892/1992

West Brooklyn - F.H. Bunnell has obtained a pension, just what he deserved, for it will be remembered that he was with Sherman in his march through Georgia.

Union Dale - On Saturday evening, while a son of Frank Swingle, of Lyon St., was driving to Uniondale, his foot was caught between the brake and springs and before he could be extricated, his right leg and knee were disjointed and badly lacerated. Sunday morning Dr's Craft and Gardner amputated his thigh in the middle third.

Herrick Centre - The Epworth League will meet Tuesday evening. An original paper called the "Herrick Centre Gossip" will be read by Miss Paterson, who is editor and proprietor. There will also be other exercises. Come everybody. AND Our sidewalk if progressing finely. All the citizens are interested and all assist in laying it. There is money enough raised to lay two-thirds the length of the town.

Susquehanna - A pretty wedding took place at three o’clock last Monday afternoon at the home of Mr. Nieman, on the Oakland side. The contracting parties were Miss Emma Nieman and Carl G. Liesinger. The bride was given away by her father, and he who tied the knot was the Rev. J. Marshland, pastor of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. & Mrs. Liesinger will reside in Middletown, where the groom holds a lucrative position. AND Frank Beebe recently killed a black snake in his stone quarry, in Oakland, that measured a trifle over 7 feet in length.

Harford - T.M. Maynard broke an axle under a load of corn, Monday. But his horses "kept cool." AND Mrs. Jennie Wilson, speaking of her Western trip, says she cannot admire the great West as a permanent home. Neither the climate, scenery, or water suit Eastern people. "Give me old Harford, with its rocks and hills."

Auburn - Miss Frankie Farrell is the belle of Auburn and challenges any young lady in Susquehanna Co. to contest against her for a gold watch, for the benefit of the new Catholic Church.

Starrucca - John Glover, our old sheep shearer, is making his rounds helping the farmers gather their wool. John is a fine clipper.

Forest City - Thomas Buck, while walking from the Hillside office to Main Street, after having drawing $166 to pay in bills, lost the whole amount. There were eight twenty-dollar bills, and a five and a one-dollar bill. Thus far he has been unable to find any trace of the money.

Montrose - W.W. Nash is now prepared to furnish you with cabbage plants at reasonable prices. Plants delivered, if desired, anywhere in the borough. Buy your plants of Mr. Nash and thus patronize home industry.
