Forest Lake- The "Woman’s Mission Band" met at Sarah M. Wright’s, Wednesday, April 23, and quilted a very pretty quilt which was pieced by the members of the Band, and H. Lester arrived home from the from West on Sunday, April 27.

Harford - On Wednesday morning, fire destroyed one half of the boys building at the Soldiers Orphans School in Harford, the remaining portion being saved by the heroic efforts of the children. A new building will be erected within 10 days. No one was injured, and the loss will not interfere with the school in the least.

Montrose - The new uniform decided upon by Rough and Ready Fire Co., No. 1, which it is expected, will be worn for the first time on the 30th of May, is a long frock coat, cadet gray, trimmed in silver.

Oakley [Harford Twp.] - Photographer Knapp’s horse got out of its pasture lot near Foster, on the R.R. track, outrunning a coal train to Oakley, and crossing a bridge about 20 feet long on the ties, unhurt. Nothing but a mustang could do it.

Rush - John Howard, agent for the sale of musical instruments, has just placed a grand piano in the home of Orange Swan, for the use of his daughter, Ettie, who is pursuing her musical education with a view to teaching. The piano is represented as one of the finest in the county.

Silver Lake- Arbor Day was not generally observed here. If the order was to cut down instead of planting, it would be hailed with delight by some vandals. However, Mr. Stanford has distributed fruit trees and bushes to customers here and Capt. James West has had three hundred trees plants on his new place; mostly shade trees.

Susquehanna - The marriage of C.F. Wright and Miss Minnie Miller, of Susquehanna, occurred in that place on Wednesday. The bride is a daughter of C.A. Miller, of the Starrucca House, and the groom a former resident of Montrose, whose many friends will unite in extending congratulations.
