Miss Margaret Metzger, daughter of Supervisor Metzger, is the newly appointed Postmaster of this place…

We are informed that A.A. Bradley contemplates making additions to his dwelling by way of enlarging it and adding a bath and a toilet.

Messrs. Colville and Weber acting as appraisers and Supervisor Metzger as administrator, have made a complete inventory of the personal effects of the late Mrs. Bodine. We understand that a public sale of the above goods will take place some time the coming month.

We are glad to say that Mrs. Lawrence Crandall is quite well again.

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Tether intend leaving their farm at Washington Lake and will make their future home in Hawley, Pa. They have worked hard all their lives and have earned a needed respite from the pressing activities of life. Their son Walter Tether of Barryville will quit his present occupation at that place and settle down on the old homestead to till the soil. May peace and prosperity attend them one and all in their new relations in life.
