Baker of the Syracuse Herald is becoming desperate on the matter of roatl improvement, when he advises that “it may be feasible to continue the old system and steal the gravel.” Overseer of Poor Wm. Harpst took Charles \il'. Powell to the Ovid State Hospital, as a lunatic and developing dangerous tendencies, on Friday last. The patient has no family of his own. The Assembly room of Mynderse Ac ademy is being handsomely papered anil fitted up for the graduating exercises and prize speaking, which will be held there on the afternoon and evening of June 19. The public schools will close .June 19 for the 'summer vacation. The com mencement exercises of Mynderse Acad emy will take place in the afternoon, •and the prize speaking in the evening of that day. Mr. Henry 8olleok has presented a bill of §1000 against the village, for damages rc.sulting from injuries re ceived in falling upon the broken fiag- stane walk in front of the Johnson prop erty, on State street. A great improvement has been made in clearing up the lloag House corner, and the rubbish is fast disappearing, and the streets and walks* are getting into respectable and usable condition again throughout the burnt district. ■We shall be fairly presentable to visit ors about July 30. At the head of our local columns to day we publish the corrected N. Y. Cen tral time table, .vhich went into ell'eet at noon last Sunday, June 7. Several changes have been made, the principal one of which is the late train from the west which is due now at S :25 instead of 10:57 as heretofore. A new time-table took ellect on the Central railroad last Sunday, an addi tional train being added each way. The extra train eastward pasres Seneca Falls about 12:l0i*. m ., and the one westward at about 1 ;50 e. m . The 10:57 train from the west reaches here about two hours earlier than usual. The Partridge corner begins to look cheerful and business-like again, nearly half the block being occupied and well lighted at night. Our new .loniNAi. sanctum will be ready for us before the next issue, and friends are invited to etill in and inspect our new quarters, at the end of the center hall, tvest side A very cheerful cackling resounded from the parlors of tlie M. E. church last Friday evening, indicating that the “ilother Goose” entertainment by the little fellows of tlie Sunday school, was proviug a delight to the whole flock. “The goslings” performed their antics with shrewd pleasantry, and tlieir juvenile scheme was a great success. Advancing steps are being taken quietly, but it is thought surely, to se cure a grand Firemen’s Parade and general celebration on .July 30 in Seneca Falls. What better date could be fixed tlian the anniversary of the big fire, which will always be a prominent way. mark in the history of our plucky and prosperous town ? Let all do their share in providing for a creditable and enjoyable demonstration on J u ’.y 30.
