Hallstead - Dr. C. W. Caterson of Franklin Forks, was stopping at the home of Willis Ingraham last Friday extracting teeth for a number of people. He expects to be there one day in every week until further notice. Any one wishing painless extracting done will do well to give him a call at the home of Willis Ingraham on upper Pine street, Hallstead.

Brooklyn - Mr. G. B. Rogers celebrated his 80th birthday at the home of William Morgan on Lincoln St., Dickson City, where he was visiting. The evening was pleasantly spent with stories of Mr. Rogers' younger days and music. All departed after singing "God Be With Us Till We Meet Again." There were four generations represented at the gathering. Although Mr. Rogers has lived 80 summers, he is a hale old man yet and still works his farm himself.

Susquehanna - The Erie was opened through to Elmira 52 years ago on Thursday last. The railroad will be petitioned to have the westbound train, leaving here at 7 A.M., kept on the road. It is a very convenient train for people leaving Susquehanna and Great Bend for Binghamton and points on the Susquehanna division. AND Miss Isabelle Kittell, who recently entered the New York Conservatory of Music, to study voice culture and instrumental music, is the composer of a gem two-step called "The Susquehanna Two-step," which has received favorable comment.

St. Joseph -The Rt. Rev. M. J. Hoban paid his visit here Sunday, Sept. 22d. He administered the sacrament of Confirmation to a class of 153, two adults being among the number. The Bishop was assisted by Frs. J. J. Lally, pastor of the Church, his assistant, Fr. S. O'Boyle and Fr. Driscoll of Friendsville. The little church could not hold one-half of those who came to greet Bishop Hoban on the auspicious occasion. The Bishop presented each child confirmed with a small medal as a memento of his second visit to the parish. The children were neatly dressed, the girls all wearing white, and some with wreaths or crowns. The day was beautiful and will be long remembered by all. Great credit is due the popular pastor, Fr. Lally, who with untiring zeal for many weeks prior to the event, instructed the children most carefully.

Springville - A certain boy took the liberty to stone M. L. Allyn's house Monday night, breaking a large glass. That boy had better settle and save trouble, for he is well known.

Harford - Eloise McConnell, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Hugh McConnell, was married on Thursday at the home of her sister, Mrs. Paul Sherwood in Wilkes-Barre, to Mr. Kniffen of that city. Mr. McConnell and family attended the wedding.

East Rush - The rain Sunday morning kept many away from services. The Pastor H. B. Burns wishes the people to remember that rain will not prevent his coming. If the pastor can drive 3 miles in the rain, surely the people ought not to stay away. AND In Lawton the farmers of this locality are becoming quite enthusiastic over the Grange organization. Their membership at present is nearly 100. It is time that this class of men should awake from their lethargy and organize against the monopolies. This is the last and only resort for the farmers who are threatened with chattel .

Elk Lake - Estus & Green are doing good work with their steam thresher. Any one wanting work done will do well to call on them.

The following are the members of the Montrose team: Coyle, Searle, Ayres, Baxter, Felker, Tingley, Allen, Camp, Smith, Carey, Billings, Downer and Gardiner.

Open Wednesdays & Saturdays, Searle Building, 2nd story.

Hopbottom - Our streets are well supplied with good stone sidewalks. There have been about 20 laid in the last three years and more than half that many re-laid, so our walks are in very good condition. But Main streets beats anything in the county for cross-walks; in a distance of about 500 feet there are five stone cross walks and the last one laid was unnecessary. If our city fathers have so much money to spend for side and cross walks, they had better burn some of it for the taxpayers' benefit, in lighting our streets, which have been in darkness for a year.

Glenwood - Chicken thieves have begun their fall work. It might be well for them to be a little careful where they get them hereafter.

Dimock - Ed Nobles had a husking bee last Friday night. There were about16 there and they did him a fine job. AND A number from this place attended a stone bee at W. C. Smith's last Saturday.
