  • Don’t forget to change your clock as the church services will be held on the old time Sunday.
  • A handsome hound belonging to Dr. M.S. Reid was poisoned Monday afternoon and suffered awful agony before it died. The doctor had anticipated considerable pleasure with the dog when the hunting season opened.
  • Robert B. Sickler, who is employed by the N.Y.C.R.R. Co. as a boilermaker at the Ravena engine house, was badly burned on the right hand and wrist from the backfire of an engine on which he had been working Sunday morning. He was kept from his labors since as a result.
  • W. Winne Wolfe, cashier of the First National Bank of Ravena, is enjoying a vacation.
  • The Boy Scouts are fortunate in having Major J.K. Meneeley as their drill master, and it is hoped that the parents will see to it that the children attend the appointed drill meetings.


  • Dr. and Mrs. H.F. Muller of Mountain Road, who have been spending the summer at their cottage in Rensselaerville, have returned.
  • The Grammar School building in the Ravena school district was sold at auction on Saturday afternoon last by the board of education and brought $981. The building is a two-story, brick-and-frame, 45×80 feet and contained a complete hot water plant. The purchaser was Storm Roberts of New York City and the building was bid by Daniel Grogan for Mr. Roberts. The only other aggressive bidder was Jacob Whitbeck. Mr. Roberts will shortly begin to dismantle the building and will use the material for the construction of a two-family house on Madison Avenue. The building contains a large amount of rough timber and considerable sound timber of large dimensions.
  • Miss Emily Bedell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elvin Bedell of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and Clarence Joralemon of this village were united in marriage at the parsonage of the Christian Church by the Rev. W.E. Baker on Sunday afternoon. They were attended by Miss Ruth McCulloch and Arthur Caswell.
  • The Ladies Aid Society of the M. E. Church will meet at Mrs. Brougham’s on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 3. Mrs. Bishop will assist in entertaining.

  • Last week to pay your road tax.
  • The crowded condition of Vincent Hall on Sunday evening aptly illustrated the urgent necessity for more extensive church room in this locality. With commendable promptness, in order to meet the wants of an increased population, new day school facilities are being provided for. What a rapid stride of progress we would be taking if the completion of the new public school would also see the erection of a new church.
  • As anticipated for some time, we are to have a new district schoolhouse. Negotiations are about being consummated for the purchase of a site just beyond the old blacksmith shop.  This location is more central and much better adapted for the purpose intended than our present one.
