Price of oil going up

Since the Supreme Court has decided that the Standard Oil Co. will have to be dissolved in six months, no doubt Mr. Rockefeller will raise the price of oil a few cents after the dissolution goes into effect for two reasons: first, to convince the public what a good friend they had in the old Standard Oil and secondly to show us that the "dissolved" Standard Oil Co. is still much bigger than the U.S. Supreme Court or anything else we have to buck against it. (Note: There's nothing new under the sun, says the Bible!)

Gun toting discouraged

Gov. John A. Dix has signed Senator Sullivan's anti-gun-toting bill which will become law Sept. 1, 1911. After that date, a person over six years found carrying any kind of a fire-arm concealed about his person without a written license from a police magistrate or justice of the peace, will be guilty of a Misdemeanor.

Lady, boy hurt in separate falls

Mrs. O.C. Lucia, wife of the proprietor of the Carpenter House at Lake George, while washing the windows of the hotel recently, fell from the piazza roof to the ground about 14 feet below and fractured her shoulder. She was picked up off the ground in a semi-conscious state and carried into the hotel where she was attended by a physician and eventually regained her senses.

Percy Combs, while riding down Main St., Warrensburgh on a motorcycle, took a header from the machine in front of Katz & Bierman's tailor shop. He went up in the air a considerable distance and landed in the road with such force as to render him unconscious for some time. He was carried into the tailor shop where Dr. Goodman attended him.
