Merrillsville - Sept. 9, 1889.

- Misses Lilly and Emma Williams, of New Harford, have returned to their home, after a few day's visit with their friends here.
- A. Snyder and family, of Cortland, are here with relatives during the hop festival.
- L. Ratnour, of Wampsville, called on friends here Sunday last.
- S. J. Stoddard lost a horse last week by being kicked by its mate while in the pasture.
- Mr. and Mrs. Fred Betsinger, of Durhamville, were guests of D. Stone and family, yesterday.
- Frank Moon has been on the sick list during the last week or so.
- Mrs. Arvis Dunham is somewhat better, but is still confined to her bed.
- Hops are hurting badly. A. Moon has left a large quantity unpicked, as have some others. D. Stone has not a mouldy hop among his, but most of the yards are quite bad, pickers complain of slow work, while the outlook for good prices is poor. The yards will nearly be all finished during this week.
