Crops in Pittsfield are the poorest I have ever known them and I have seeu the crops of fifty years in this township. A new school house is being built in school district No. 3. It stands just across the road from the town hall The old house still standing is a brick one.while the new one is a frame structure. Very few apples can be found in the orchards in this vicinity. This has been a good season for beesCountry roads are good, there having been no rain to spoil them. Farm wages are lower. A large attendance was reported at children's day at the Pittsfl9ld union Sunday school last week.
