Dead from unknown cause

The body of John Barrett of Corinth was found July 5, 1913 in the Sturdivan Creek mill pond near that place. From the position of the body, he might have accidentally fallen from the bridge or have committed suicide.

Hard work up in smoke

A barn on Sanford Young’s farm on the River Road, Warrensburgh — known as the Green Place — was struck by lightening, July 9, 1913 and burned to the ground. Mr. Young had his hay crop nearly all harvested and being stored in the barn, it was all destroyed.

Several engineers of the State Conservation Commission in the charge of T.H. Bean and E.S. Cullins are at work on the Ben Glynn place on the West River (now Hudson) in Warrensburgh making a contour map of the site of the proposed state fish hatchery at that point. It is stated on good authority that the hatchery is a sure thing and it is expected that the work of construction will be started at an early date.

Stage play dazzles audience

“The Wolf,” a graphic drama of Canadian north woods, full of color and action, inspiring in its theme, thrilling in its situations and declared to be one of the most perfectly constructed plays on the stage, was presented at the Music Hall in Warrensburgh, Monday night, June 30, 1913 by a competent band of players under the direction of the King Amusement Co. of New York. Written by Eugene Walters, the story is of absorbing interest, heart-gripping in its intensity and compelling in its appeal to the best instincts of men.

The show must go on

The electric light plant has been out of commission since Saturday evening, June 21,1913, when it was deprived of power by a breakage of the step in the water-wheel. Repairs will be completed by July 6, 1913 and the current will revivify the lights. The illumination will be gratefully welcomed and kerosene lamps will again be stowed away with much pleasure.
