Murder trial scheduled

Timothy Hill of Minerva, who has been in the Essex County jail at Elizabethtown since last August under indictment for having poisoned Mrs. Maurice Loveland, will be tried at a special term of Supreme Court to be convened at Elizabethtown on Monday, May 6, 1912. Justice H.T. Kellogg of Plattsburgh will preside. A panel of 100 jurors has been drawn for the trial. The defense lawyers have given no intimation of what their defense will be, but it is believed that they will endeavor to prove the woman committed suicide.(Note…The unusual case of the suspicious death of Anna Loveland, Timothy Hill’s live in girlfriend, was told in this column in the Feb. 11, 2012 issue of the Adirondack Journal.)

Watch for Sam up north

Sam Brooks, the Northville merchant, has just returned from New York with a full line of up-to-date goods and will leave Northville April 27, 1912 for a trip up north.

He intends to surprise the people with his new line of goods and the remarkable price he will ask for them. His horse drawn wagon will contain men’s clothing, dry goods, ladies’ shirt waists and furnishings.

Inmate fears bodily harm

John Gross, a resident of Luzerne who ran away from the Warrensburgh County Home a short time ago, as he feared that the persons in charge would harm him, and who was later arrested in Glens Falls on a charge of vagrancy, has been adjudged insane and committed to the state hospital in Utica.

Ernest S. Church, a young man residing near Lake George Village, has also been pronounced of unsound mind and was sent to the same institution.

Death in the news

Mrs. Herbert Moon of Bridgeport, Conn., formerly Miss Maude Fish of Bolton Landing, died in April, 1912 after a brief illness.
