Turning Back the Pages

1Spring, where art thou?

April tears have been frozen and her smiles are chilly. Snow is still on the ground and the measles are making a clean sweep of Johnsburgh Corners. Everyone who has not had them is taking their turn. Kate Russell has them and over in North Caldwell there are seven new cases in the family of Charles Prosser and two of them have developed pneumonia.

The Hudson River spring log drive consisting of 30 men and four teams, in charge of Ashley T. Kellogg of Glens Falls, starts Tuesday, April 18, 1911 at Thurman Station and will go to the Big Boom in Glens Falls. The logs left in the river from last year will be driven down to the Glens Falls mills preliminary to the regular drive which starts from the upper waters.

Hot lead flying

Victoria Minnucci, who was implicated in the shooting of John Altierri a few days ago was released Thursday, March 30, 1911 in Glens Falls City Court as there was not enough evidence to hold him, but Louis Miller, who it was proven did the shooting, was held to await the action of the Grand Jury. He furnished $500 bail and will plead self-defense.

Prominent lady dies

Betsey Coolidge Dickinson, 76, wife of Capt. M.N. Dickinson of Warrensburgh, died Sunday, March 26, 1911 after a period of nearly four years of failing health. The end came quickly after she was obliged to give up the battle against advancing years.

Mrs. Dickinson was born on Coolidge Hill in the town of Bolton and is connected with the prominent Glens Falls families of that name. On July 1, 1858 she married the captain and they moved to Warrensburgh. She is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Grace Cordelia Somerville and a son, Lester Coolidge Dickinson, both of Warrensburgh. Burial was in the Warrensburgh Cemetery.
