It is with feeling of sadness that we have just heard of the death of an old friend and former resident of this place, Mrs. Sidney CALKINS, who at one time, with her husband and children occupied the homestead now owned by B. B.. Robinson, Esq. She was a kind and obliging neighbor and had a host of friends, who will mourn her loss as they think of the kindly deeds of her who lived among us so long.

Another of our bachelors is gone. James INGERSOL was married last Wednesday evening, Jan 13, to Tora TILBURY, of Union. The knot was tied at the residence of Rev. Ira DICKINSON, after which ceremony the couple repaired to the home of the bride, where a pleasant evening was enjoyed with a house full of friends and neighbors. Much joy Jimmie.
