Lanesboro – “Jack” Dodge, the champion wildcat slayer of the Jefferson Branch [Erie Railroad], will remove from Starrucca to Lanesboro.

Lenoxville – The sleighing is nearly gone and sugar making has begun. Where can we have the first sugar party?

Forest Lake Centre – F.H. Ball, the undertaker at Birchardville, attended Prof. F.A. Sullvin’s Oriental school of embalming at Scranton, PA, last week, and received a diploma. He is now prepared to embalm all cases successfully.

Springville – I wish to correct a rumor that was afloat about N.H. Sherman leaving his wife and going to Tunkhannock Wednesday afternoon and coming back on Thursday eve. I understand that some gossiper of Springville went to P.E. Brush and told him that his wife and hired girl drove him off the couch in the sitting room, and moved it into the parlor, which is pure falsehood. I have been belied about enough by gossipers since I have lived in Springville; now if the people are so interested in our affairs.

Brooklyn – The Y.P.C.U. of the Universalist Church will give a Paper-Sack-Social Wednesday evening, March 20, at A.S. Waldie’s. What is that? Come and see.

Montrose – A new industry in Montrose is that of E.P. Stebbins’ who is raising lettuce, radishes, etc. in considerable quantities in his extensive hot house.
