October 21 1921/2021
Uniondale – The State Police, while reconnoitering near here, came across an apparently unused road and investigating found it led to an old barn. The door opening of the barn had been enlarged to admit an automobile, which was concealed under some hay. The car was restored to its owner, in Shamokin, having been stolen some time ago. This may be a link to the mystery concerning the murder of Burns Lyon, recently. Reports to the effect that two men had been arrested and charged with murdering and robbing Burns Lyon, two weeks ago, are unfounded.
New Milford – Prof. D. L. Donnelly, of Binghamton, will teach a class every Monday evening, at the New Milford Opera House. Lessons, 7:30. Dancing nine o’clock. Palace Society Orchestra, of Binghamton, will furnish the music.
Montrose – Funeral services for Ray Everett, whose death occurred in France, Nov. 6, 1918, the result of wounds received in battle, will be held this Thursday afternoon in the Baptist church. The exercises will be in charge of the Gardner-Warner Post, American Legion. Deceased is the son of Mrs. Flora Powell, of Bridgewater Township and was a private in Co. K, 312th infantry in the World War. ALSO Ed. H. VanVecthen, of New York, was a guest at the home of Mrs. H. B. Benedict over Sunday, being a boyhood friend of Rev. B. B. Benedict. He is an actor whose side line is posing and has achieved some reputation as a model.

Birchardville – There will be a masquerade social held in the Grange Hall, Friday evening, Oct. 38th. Everybody come and have a good time. A prize will be given to the best dressed; also a booby prize.
Lakeside – There has been much talk about the State draining the well-known Page Pond of this place. This is a large and fine sheet of water, long renowned as a famous fishing resort and should not be allowed to pass out of existence. We understand a stock company is being organized to purchase and preserve it for the benefit of the fishing public. We hope they will succeed in their efforts. With the completion of the Lackawanna Trail more fishermen and campers will be brought in; more cottages could be built, more business done and one more step gained for a good road from New Milford to Lakeside.
Harford – L. W. Peck and son, while digging potatoes, found one which weighed two pounds and seven ounces. Can anyone beat that? If so, let’s hear from them. The potato can be seen at Maynard’s store. ALSO – Several from here attended W. W. Resseguie’s sale at South Gibson and J. M. Felton purchased a fancy pig. If you want to see something worth the price, just stop and take a look at it.
Susquehanna – Owing to the depression in the broad silk market, the Tri-Boro Silk Mill, on Erie Avenue, will close, as soon as the silk now on the spindles is run off. Supt. Greene, however, does not think the shut-down will be of long duration. ALSO The Erie Band gave a program of music on Monday evening at the opening of the bazaar, which is being held for the benefit of the Susquehanna Inter-State basketball league.
Lawton – Merchant M. M. Coleman, of Lawton, has purchased from the Kahler estate, the store that he has occupied for some years and is to be congratulated on acquiring this property.

Thompson – Wednesday, Oct. 12, being the 75thbirthday of J. W. Hobbs, a number of his friends and neighbors surprised him by spending the evening at his home on Main street at Thompson. One interesting feature of the evening was when one of the grand-children found an old violin in the attic, which Mr. Hobbs played over 50 years ago Finally Mr. Hobbs was persuaded to play, and he surprised all in the way he handled the bow. After the usual form of providing lunch and tokens of respect, the friends retired to their homes, wishing Mr. Hobbs many more birthdays as happy.
Forest City – Forest City defeated the Legion team at the local park Sunday afternoon. The first few innings were close but in the last two the Legion was routed. The final score stood at 25 to 10 in favor of the Cityites. “Italy” Slick’s pitching was the main feature. ALSO George Fives has sold his farm in Clinton township to Michael J. Shanley. Mr. Fives will become a resident of this place.
Ararat – The band social held at the home of L. W. Potter, Friday evening, was a delightful affair. Music by the band, the Ararat orchestra, the male quartet and piano duets by Mrs. Crosier and Mrs. Barnes, of Thompson, made a most enjoyable program. Delicious refreshments were served, and all enjoyed the evening very much and felt it one to be remembered with pleasure.
