Marietta Register, February 22, 1883
We might say something about the
high water, but forebear.
“Social was no monomer for the
gathering at Mrs. Altvater’s on Friday evening. A beautiful spring-like night,
a large company. And a pleasant a time, describes it.
Our people must content
themselves with the practice of the gospel at present as both the preachers are
away; Elder Gunter at Matamoras and Pastor Doan at Pine Ridge.
The farm formerly known as the
Valley Farm, on of the largest in this section, will be for rent in the spring.
A young gentleman from west of
here had the audacity to remark the other day that Newport would probably last
only so long as the houses built now last. But when the Ohio Valley R.R. comes
he will see.
A party from Pittsburgh, whose name we did not learn
bought the Leaser farm. It is a fine site for a fruit farm.
Our sister town of St. Marys is to have two
newspapers, so we are told. Well done.
We agree with the Register that
the recent floods vindicated Wiggins. But what, oh what, about March?
Our Supervisor reports more work
needed than funds in hand. The study of Physiognomy is an interesting and
profitable one, but what do others see in your face?
The editorial and correspondence
in the Register of late have been of much interest, and orange culture, as
there shown, is a profitable pursuit. But men of limited means will so well to
reflect that some of the rough land of Washington County planted with Rome
Beauty furnish a cheaper and more available investment.
M.W. Rea has sold out below,
with produce all delivered, and we hope to see him home soon.
D.J. States expects to pass some
of the classes at Pulte Medical College,
examination, which is food enough for a first course student.
G.W. Hendershot expects to
return, with his family, to Monroe Co., soon.
Will Cook accepts his old
position at Ironton and goes there again this week.
Watson Dana, Jr., returns to Montgomery county this
week. His sister, Carrie will accompany him.
We learn of the death of Mrs.
Andrew Friedel, of cancer. She was a lady highly respected, and a great
Gordon Greene is daily expected
from the South by his friends.
Thos. Ewart, of Marietta, visited
relatives here last week.
Just as we close our notes, we
learn of the death of Abaram Tidd, an old citizen of Eight Mile. He was a
confirmed invalid for years.
If you notice and immediate
addition to your subscription list, Probably owing to our correspondence, we
may write again. W.M.D.
