Empire Theatre presentations

A large party of Warrensburgh music lovers attended the concert by John Philip Sousa’s band at the Empire Theatre in Glens Falls, Monday night, Nov. 3, 1913 — and they enjoyed the inspiring music. The Empire Theatre is regaining its old time prosperity under the vigorous and astute management of Joe Miller.

The presentation “Naughty Rebecca” will appear at the theatre Tuesday, Nov. 11, 1913 in a matinee.

The Hudson Valley Railway trolley car leaves Warrensburgh at 7 p.m. and is known as the “Theatre Car,” and also runs direct through to Saratoga except on Sundays.

New taxi in town

Henry D. Cameron, who has conducted an auto cab service in Warrensburgh during the summer season with a Ford touring car, has purchased through the local agency of T.J. Lynch, after selling his Ford to William McElroy, a 1914 model Ford, also from Mr. Lynch, which was delivered Dec. 3, 1914.

With his old car, Mr. Cameron this season covered more than 10,000 miles and only paid out $1.50 in repair charges.

The death of Asa Bruce

When Asa Bruce died, Nov. 22, 1913, the town of Horicon lost one of its best citizens. Born Sept. 7, 1880 on his father’s farm in Horicon, he remained there until his marriage to Miss Evelena Morehouse and he went with his bride to establish a home in the town of Caldwell, about 4 & 1/2 miles from Warrensburgh on the Bolton Road.

After the death of his father, Harvey Bruce, Asa conserved the large landed inheritance he received and the effort to attend to his manifold duties of raising cattle and sheep, made his health break down. His death was caused by typhoid fever. Besides his widow, he is survived by his mother, three sisters and three brothers, Clarence, Percy and Orrin Bruce. The funeral was held Nov. 25, 1913 and his mortal remains are buried on his farm land. (Note: the Bruce farm was located between Adirondack and Starbuckville.)
