•*r, rcff The Massena Observer. THURSDAY OCTOBER 21. 1*97^ Town Correspondence. RACKET RIVER. Death of Two Old Residents—Much Sickness and • Wedding. Oct l^-Much sickness prevails in our town and sadly we are forced to announce the death of two of our oldest inhabitants. Mrs J. C. Gilman, whose death was announced in last week's issue. WBN born in Massena Jauuary 8,1819, and had lived on the old homestead at this place for over fifty years. Sbe nad been in failing health for over a year and her death was not unexpected. Mrs. Mary Payne, wife of Barney Payne, died last Tuesday. The fu- neral was held on Thursday.

Curtis Wells, of Canton, is visiting his parents at this place. David Deloah, of Cornwall, visited friends in town the past week. Wm. Clark and wifey-tff North Lawrence, are visiting at day Smith's. Mrs. S. Haversfock is also among the sick. Fred Beauleau and Mils Mary Fre- go were married by Hey. Father Nolan at Massena last Tuesday. The young couple went to Burlington on their wedding trip.

Gracie Nowland, who fell on the sidewalk a few days ago and hurt her knee, is having quite a serious time with it, but we are informed she is on the gain. Mra. Hamilton is moving to Bay- mondville. Ed. Barnett and daughters are im- proving slowly. At the rate that wife killing is go ing on of late there will soon be one in each town and taking the time and expense of late trials in this and JeC- erson counties it would not only take aUthefreeholdersiathe county tot tfflar \'Jurors but it wdukt be the means of bonding the county for not less than $7uO,QQu to pay the lawyers and expert witnesses. It is a start- ling fact the way our courts are spun out even when there is no dispute as to who commited the deed; but there appears to be no remedy only quietly foot the bills. Alva Martin and wife, of Lisbon, called on F. L. Harrington Sunday. Dr. Putney, of Norfolk, was in town Friday. West Stockholm. Oct. 19—This place added to its social list a Court of Independent Order of Foresters on the evening of October 6th. The court was insti- tuted by G.
