Chicken thieves nabbed

For quite some time, residents of lower Main St. in Warrensburgh have been annoyed by chicken thieves and several wood piles have also been raided.

One recent morning, Lewis Everts, found a fine Plymouth Rock rooster missing from his flock and discovered that his woodpile had diminished in size considerably during the night. He had more than a suspicion as to where these things went to and securing a constable he raided the home of the man he suspected. The evidence was so strong that the culprit confessed and paid $10 to settle the case.

Out with the old, in with the new

Plans and bids for the erection of the Delaware & Hudson Co.'s new station to replace the one that has been in use at Lake George were completed last fall. The work on the new station is now coming along nicely. The plans call for the erection of a one-story structure of brick with stucco finish, with a tower. The building is being erected on the site of the old station and will be ready for occupancy by the coming spring.

In other Lake George news, a force of men is making extensive improvements to the Warren County Jail. An addition is being built to the north side of the jail which will be two stories high. This addition will give the sheriff's office more room and will provide for two rooms for women not charged with any crime, whose detention is necessary to assure their appearance at trial. The men's and women's apartments will be arranged so that conservation between male and female will be impossible.
