The Crow Iundy feud of several years standing in brought to mind by this action of governor sprout and while the enemies of Grundy and they Are legion will rejoice Over this latest blow to his Power there Are Many within tile ranks of the party who regret the action of the governor As they fear it will mean the withdrawing of the patronage of the manufacturers and of what use is an organization.

Are on the Gans farm Between Croydon and Grundy a Corner destroyed a Large barn with its Harvest contents along with a horse cow and a number of pigs which the efforts of neighbors failed to Rescue. The Gans farm is one of the Onliest in that Section and was leased by or. Walter Hill son of the late Hugh Hill a out a month ago and his loss of Stock with about 300 bushels of potatoes at this season of the year. Is quite discouraging. The fire was discovered by a Driver of a bread route on his Way to Bristol. Who notified the department Here and All companies except no. 2, were soon at the scene of the fire. Upon their arrival however it was evident the barn had been burning quite a while and the occupants of the farm Homestead were not aware of the conflagration until awakened by the clanging of the fire truck Hells.

Among the display of National colors through the Borough on sunday As a Token of valor of the War heroes buried Here on that Day was a Flag hanging in front of the residence of Merton Randall on Bath Street that attracted the attention of Many people. This was owing to it containing Only 13 stars on a Blue groundwork of Quot old glory Ami thereby hangs a tale. During the Centennial in Philadelphia 4 5 years ago 1876 flags were so scared this Section everything available in that line were bought up. Wilson Randall who had moved Here from new Portville and opened a Carriage and Blacksmith shop on Bath Street a few years previous while not among those without a Flag to display on such a memorable occasion. Had one that to his liking did not show the stars prominently enough. At that time he employed among his workmen Charles Booz who was noted As an artistic Painter and when the question of the worn part of Obi glory was mentioned to him lie suggested that mrs. Randall. Now of revered memory buy some White Muslin and on it he painted a Blue ground developing in lines Tho shape of 13 stars. While it is presumed from his work he was familiar with the design of the 13 colonies. It is evident to embody a Star for each state even at that time was too great a task which accounts for the display of what now seems to the younger generation an Odd Flag of the nation.
