Town and Local News -  The last few weeks have been remarkable for the number of deaths in our village, mostly persons of advanced years.  Mrs. Elizabeth Miller, age 91 years; Rachel Rowley, 76 years; David Jordon, 89 years; C. F. Kinney 40 years and an infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Moffet.  Our town is generally considered a healthy place, but the great Destroyer has been unusually active in our midst for a short time.
