* It appears that the ordinance relating to the shooting of firearms within the corporation limits is ignored to a great extent, particularly by those who have cat rifles. A number of these are in the hands of boys. A rigid application of the provisions of this ordinance may have the effect of minimizing this practice. -- Union Bridge Pilot, March 21, 1918.

* The Valentine Tea and Supper held by the King's Daughters in the I.O.O.F. Hall, on Saturday evening last, was a decided success throughout. Although the crowd was not as large as festivals have attracted, they served more than 100 suppers and did a thriving business with their fruits and confectionery, the latter of which was home-made and compared well with that of regular manufacture. A guess doll excited the conjecture bump of many persons and was quite a source of revenue from the guessers, none of whom registered the name. -- American Sentinel, Feb. 28, 1893.
