Merrillsville - May 13, 1889.

- News is scarce and work plenty in this locality. Some of the farmers are planting corn and finishing up their spring's work.
- The sick are slowly improving.
- Almeron Eddy, of Manlius visited relatives here last week.
- Frank Moon was absent the greater part of last week, being one of the Board of Excise Commissioners.
- Bert Sanders, of Oneida, was a guest of J. Warner and family over the Sabbath.
- Erastus Ingalls and daughter visited relatives at Lee Centre Saturday and Sunday.
- Commissioner Keating appointed Frank Ingalls trustee in place of S. Buyea, who moved from the district. He has not secured a teacher yet, we believe. It will be a good chance for some teacher out of school.
- Apple tree worms have made their appearance in great numbers, and many are burning their nests and destroying as many as possible.
- John Popple moved from the Buyea house to Clockville one day last week. What this place loses Clockville gains.
