Austin Yocnrn, of Manchester, spent last Sunday with friends and relatives here. Frank C. Taylor, of Jackson, speut last Sunday with relatives in this village. Most of the tuarsh baying about here is still waiting for better hay weather and is likely ta wait sonie time yet. Rev. J. S. Edwards, of Oxford, preached last Suuday morning and evening for the Congregational people of this place. A large crowd attended üncle Tom's Cabin on Tnesday night and it was reported to be very good. Times will never get so hard but that people will attend the shows. The apples will have to be made into eider, and it is said that undertakers' goods have taken a sbarp advance in yiew of the increased death rate likely to result therefrom. Beans are ripening very unevenly. Ocoasionally one has begun pnlliDg them. The frequent rains continue and much difficolty is anticipated in getting them in good oondition. All grain comes in in more or less damaged condition on acconnt of the heavy rain. The arrivals are light becanse dealers caunot receive it nntil it will take care of itself in the bins. An unusual amonnt of gronnd has been plowed and is being plowed for the coming wheat and rye crops. The farmers keep on at their work very indnstrionsly considering the little they get for it. Thomas O'Neal, an old resident of this place and Lyndon, died on Tuesday in Detroit at the age oí 95 years. Mr. O'Neal was well and favorably known here and leaves many friends behiud. He was brought here for burial. Several about here are cutting their second erop of clover and timothy and find it as good as the first erop. Some are going to cut the clover that has grown up since wheat was cut and will get a fair showing of hay. This will help the quantity of hay very much. It is reported tbat the Glaziers are going to force the water works on this village under the contract made by them on both sides, in spite of the vigoróos protest of the taxpayers. It is probable that somethiug besides protpsts will be resorted to to put a stop to such business iu these times. It does not seem like a favorable time to indulge in luxuries at two or three prices. Wheat and other grains are moving slowly at 56 cents for wheat, 25 cents for rye, 20 cents for old oats, and 15 cents fov new. Barley bas made no reoord yet and will not for some time. Potatoes 20 cents, pears 15 to 30 cents, huckleberries $1 per bushei, apples practically unsaleable.chickens 6 cents, butter 10 cents, eggs 9 cents. Farmers must have money and are crowdiug off everything that will bring anythiug at all. In answer to a telegram f rom Avon, N. Y., our village marshal arrested two boys who got off the evening train from the east last Thursday night. They were Geo. Clark, aged 17, and Robt. McGee, aged 14, who had stolen about $500 worth of property in money, watches and other valuables all from relatives at Avon. At Buffalo they bought them each a biccyle and a revolver. Clark was born here aud lived here till he was about 10 years old. McGee had been adopted trom an orphan asylnm. This was not their first offense. Deputy Sheriff Tripp arrived Satuiday night and took the boys back to Avon to be dealt with according to law.
