September 27 1901/2001
Flynn - Our (baseball) boys went to Little Meadows Saturday, just to get beat; the score, we understand, was 4 to 16 in favor of the Meadows. AND At Little Meadows a stereopticon entertainment was given the same night under the auspices of the Epworth League.
Rush - The news of the death of Dr. C. H. Warner, which occurred at his home in Rush on Sunday evening, occasioned sincere sorrow to many hearts. The Doctor was a large-hearted and kindly man, who held a warm place in the affections of a great number of households in the western part of this county and Eastern Bradford. A good man has gone to his reward. Peace be to his ashes. AND The first Roberts reunion was held Sept. 14 at Kinney's Pond. The weather was fine and all present were in good visiting order. Each made good use of their time until dinner was announced. After their appetites were appeased they spent their time visiting, swinging, boat riding and gathering water lilies.
Uniondale - The newly organized band of Uniondale rendered sweet band music for the newly married couple, Mr. and Mrs. L. G. Brady. They did well considering not having much practice, just being organized that night. The cigars were passed around by the groom and the compliment that Mr. Brady gave the boys for thanking him for the cigars and wishing him much joy and then dispersing very quietly, was a good puff for the new band. But we would say for the benefit of the boys that they came too soon to give the host and hostess a chance to wait on them to ice cream and cake.
Lenox - A meeting of stockholders was held at the Tower cemetery, Sept. 16. A fence was ordered of a Scranton dealer, who was present, for the roadside of the new cemetery. It looks now as though the project would be something more than talk in the near future. AND C. G. Stephens leaves his farm Nov. 1st and will take possession of the store now owned by Severance & Son.
Hallstead/Great Bend - The foot ball game Saturday between Great Bend and Hallstead resulted in a victory for Great Bend by a score of 4 to 1. AND While crossing the river bridge Sunday morning on her way to church, Miss Eliza Hanrahan's watch dropped through a crack in the bridge into the river. She called a boy that was near and he rowed out to the place and got the watch for her. It had not stopped and did not seem to be hurt in the least.
Susquehanna - Misses Della Hurley and Jennie Moran, two of Susquehanna's most estimable ladies, on Wednesday entered the Carbondale Convent, as postulants. AND The first of the series of social hops to be held by the young people of Christ Episcopal Church, was held at the Starrucca House on Wednesday evening.
Forest Lake - The Ladies Aid Society of the M.E. church met with Mrs. John Coy on Thursday of last week. There was a good turnout and 27 pounds of rags were sewed. Rev. W. R. Cochraine and wife and W. C. Tilden and wife were present. Proceeds $2.90.
Tingley - Bert and Frank Rosencrants, one night, while their parents were attending the New Milford meeting, found a revolver and proceeding to the barn proceeded to re-enact the McKinley and Czolgosz tragedy, handkerchief and all, in the process of their play. Bert, who was McKinley, received a bullet through his cheek and neck, the missile coming within an ace of the jugular vein. A gentleman boarding there discovered the wounded boy. Surgical aid was summoned and the boy will recover. Next morning in school the teacher asked Frank as to the whereabouts of his brother. He naively exclaimed: "Bert's shot: I shot him." They are about six and eight years of age.
Gibson - Several enterprising ladies of Gibson have taken up the agency for the celebrated bunco remedies which is said to restore perpetual youth by giving beauty to the old and flowing locks to the bald. These ladies believe that they have a good thing and that there is money in it. They are not altogether convinced that they have been buncoed, although they have paid dear for their experience. They are applying the remedies daily to their complexion and hair and are waiting and watching the results of these applications before launching them on the public. No doubt, if the beauty and growth of hair which they are seeking, materializes, their fortunes will have been made and the people in their mad rush will stumble over one another in their endeavor to obtain this wonderful discovery.
South Auburn - Edward Cooley, who has spent the last 45 years in Duluth, Kansas, has returned east and in company with Mrs. David Jayne, visited in this place last week.
Springville - School here seems to be having a pretty good attendance, which will probably increase after the fall work is done. AND L. B. Luce and family start this week for California. E. M. Blakslee will go at the same time. Abram Luce will accompany the party as far as Illinois where he will visit relatives for three or four weeks.
Montrose - The 8th annual reunion of Co. D, 50th Reg't, Pennsylvania Volunteers, was held Sept. 27th in the rooms of the Four Brother Post, G.A.R. Among those attending were: Thos. W. Alderson, Glenwood; H. A. Shaw, G. W. Mitchell and Mark Smith, Binghamton; E. J. Messenger, Thomson; W. H. Fordham, Carbondale; H. C. Burgess, A. C. Ayers, E. S. Warner, C. W. Lung, Lyons, Mich.; D. W. Brundage, Scranton; W. C. Rockwell and H. Lindsley, Lathrop; W. H. Lester, Vestal Center; Samuel Tarbox, Brook-side; W. H. Weaver, Oneonta, NY; W.H. Dennis, J. I. Chapman and Chandler Stephens, Montrose; Charles Fessenden, Birchardville; W. D. Bolles, Silver Lake; Joseph Howard, Lawsville. The first 14 are the original members of the company who went out in 1861.
Harford - It is said that one of the young men injured in the foot-ball game, at the Harford fair, has since died.
Binghamton Fair - On Friday, the people who visit the fair will have an excellent opportunity of striking up an acquaintance with Mrs. Carrie Nation, that remarkable Kansas woman of whom so much has been reported and printed during the last few months. Despite her eccentricities and peculiar freaks she is considered, in Kansas, as a very worthy sort of woman entitled to the highest respect and consideration. She employed means which would not be resorted to by the ordinary woman, but then--Mrs. Nation is no ordinary woman.
