October 25 1895/1995

North Jackson – Snow covered the hills this Monday morning, telling us winter is at hand.

Lanesboro – Several thousand crows are holding a sort of convention or caw cuss on Lee’s Hill between Lanesboro and Windsor. That reliable and industrious liar, known as the “oldest inhabitant,” says that this is a sign of a very long and very cold winter.

Kingsley – It is a matter of credit to the young men residing in the vicinity of Kingsley that not one of them uses tobacco or whiskey. This is a model town, to say the least.

Rush – Grand concert at the Baptist church in this place, Saturday evening, Oct. 26, for the benefit of the Rush Cornet Band. Music by the Rush Band, assisted by Profs. Gay and Smith and members of Stevensville and LeRaysville Bands. Songs by Prof. Stark and others. Recitations by Miss Maria Millard.

Hopbottom – Exploding lamp caused great loss in the Village. A $40,000 fire Saturday night left little of the business portion of Foster [Hopbottom] remaining. Eight buildings, including the Methodist church, were destroyed before the flames could be subdued.
