September 28 1894/1994

Rush - We are informed that W.N. Barnes, has laid a pipe, with a pump attached, from the spring on his farm to the house, a distance of 100 feet and the water is pumped as easily as it could be from a well ten feet Thus can be seen that there are many farmers who could lessen labor with but little expense.

Montrose - One of L.B. Pickets celebrated gas pipe sleighs will be Ion exhibition at the Susquehanna bounty fair next week. A pair of horses will be hitched to it at that time and the vehicle thoroughly tested. Every farmer and everyone having use for a sleigh should be sure and witness this test and inspect the sleigh. Nothing can beat them for beauty and durability.

Birchardville - On September 26 the Red Men of Birchardville considering that a friend in need is a friend indeed, turned out to help a sick brother George Warner, who has been ill for some time. They cut his corn, and sowed corn, cut his buckwheat, and dug his potatoes, 25 bu., or more. Now, is that doing as you would be done by, under like circumstances? Mr. Warner was very grateful for the kind deed.

Hop Bottom- The little hamlet of Hopbottom, this county, is to have water works. Susquehanna, the largest town in the county, has none of its own, but it is very necessary that it should have sewers also. (Reported in Susquehanna Journal)

Fairdale - St. Josephs College is no more. That once beautiful building is now numbered among the things that were.
