Martin, pastor of the Glens Falls Presbyterian Church, is able to resume his clerical duties after an enforced idleness of several months due to injuries suffered in a trolley crash of the Hudson Valley railway at Thomson.

Local store selling baldness cure

At the Rexall store in Warrensburgh, Dickinson & Bertrand is selling bottles of Rexall "93" hair tonic like hotcakes.

The trial will not cost the buyer a penny if it does not give absolute satisfaction. The small size bottle is 50 cents and the large one is $1.
