The Injuries which engineer Peter O'Donnel! of the Harlem railroad sustained in the collision near New York City a number of weeks ago when a Harlem train crashed Into a New York, New Haven and Hart' ford train, seem to be of a more serious nature than was at first sup­ posed as he is not yet able to resume his position.

Many Chatham friends wish blm abundant success in his new field of labor. The following Cbathamites have been spending a few days at the Sans Soucl\ cottage at Copake Lake: F. & and A. B. Ford, H. B. Akin, C. J Seymour. A. J. Fellows, E L. Mather and O. W. Phelps. They spent -the greater portion of their time fishing- and brought home some fine specimens. There Is now and then a fish remaining in the take, however. Tbe angling Is said to be unusually good down there this year. The lawn party held last evening on tbe grounds of L. Mailory on Railroad avenue under tba auspices of the St James church was well attended. With the mercury stand­ ing at 90 degrees in tbe moonlight it was ideal weather for ice cream and it haturally follows that large auantities-of it was put undercover. Since the beginning of tbe present hot spell, the price of lemons has advanced from 20 to 35 cents per dozen. The reason given for-the ump is a scarcity of the truit and the fact that at present so many more than usual are being used frrjclosed to teams for twenty minutes the preparation of summer drinks. The man who desires to drive out of town in a hurry Is advised to avoid the Woodbridge avenue route. That portion.of the railroad yard Is an exceedingly busy one and with main line trains stopping there to wait for others to be switched onto side tracks andthe yard engine with. string of cars passing over it now and anon, tbe crossing is often or more at a time.
