YOUNG MAID GIVES BLOOD AND LIFE FOR HER FINANCE

Geneva - Miss GAPRONI, a 20-year-old girl of Locarno, has just given her blood and then her life to save her afflicted husband, who had been seriously injured in an automobile accident.

TEST OF CONFIDENCE WITHSTOOD
The Indians disappeared in the forest. Hours were made long with anxiety. Evening drew nigh, and in the distance appeared the chief with the daughter tripping gaily by his side. The test of confidence had been imposed and withstood, and from that day WHITE knew no friends more faithful than his red brethren.
During the year 1780 a trading house was established near Waterloo by Captain Horatio JONES. His son, energetic, bold and skillful with the rifle, joined the regiment commanded by Colonel PIPER, as a fifer. A few months later he enlisted in a company of riflemen known as the Bedford Rangers and commanded by Captain BOYD of the United States Army. A few days later the command was ambushed, a large number killed, and JONES attempted to escape. He was captured, marched for two days without food, and forced to run the gauntlet, which he did successfully.
    He was adopted into an Indian family, and shared all the privileges of Indian hospitality. He established a trading house within the borders of Seneca, later removing to Geneva. He is said to have sold to John JACOB ASTOR his first lot of furs. He was married in 1789, and removing from Geneva, was the first white man to settle in the town of Leicester. He was the first white settler to raise wheat west of the Genesee river. He was appointed Indian interpreter by President WASHINGTON, a position he held until his death in 1836.

SOME EARLY SETTLERS
Job SMITH emigrated from Ulster county in 1877, and was the first settler upon the Military Tract. He erected his cabin on the flats at Seneca Falls, now covered with fifty feet of water of VanCleef Lake, near the later site of the upper red mill owned by Colonel MYN?ERSE. He lived alone, trafficked somewhat with the Indians, and was the owner of a yoke of oxen. A party of travelers, passing up the river in 1789, was transported by him around the falls upon a cart whose wheels were sawed entirely from logs. He married a Miss GORHAM at Waterloo and returned to the flats.
   Two Connecticut traders, bearing a pack of goods, visited the Canoga reservation in 1785 and traded their merchandise for furs. James BENNETT, from Northumberland county, reached the Seneca county border in 1789, and was (parts cut out)
choosing a pleasant locality in the now village of Ovid, founded a claim upon the place by right of tomahawk improvements. This consisted of building a pole cabin thatched with bark, the deadening of timber in the vicinity, and the clearing of a small patch of ground. Legally these acts had no force. But they gave a patent to the claim. Unsatisfied with undisputed possession after succeeding well. FAUSSETT sought out the owner of lot No. 88 and purchased two separate parcels of ground of 200 acres each.
   Among others who sought homes in southern Seneca during 1789 were the DUNLAP brothers, Andrew and Wilson. With them came James WILSON. Arriving in May, Andrew DUNLAP located upon Lot No. 8, in the town of Ovid. He is known as the man whose plow turned the first furrow in breaking for cultivation the soil between the lakes. It was in the latest days of the month that a half acre of ground was tilled and the plot planted with potatoes brought by him for that purpose from his former home on the Susquehanna. But a short time elapsed before Mr. DUNLAP was enabled to make full payment for his lot, and he became the possessor of a fine farm of 600 acres, the value of which was constantly enhanced as time passed. He lived in comfort and independence in his latter days.
   Parties continued to arrive until in the spring of 1793 more than thirty families were established in the southern part. Groups gathered at Seneca Falls and Scauyase(?), and isolated families at distant points in other locations. James McKNIGHT settled in Varick, David WISNER in Romulus, and Ezekial CRANE in Tyre. There came Elijah KINNE, John SEELEY, Peter HUGHES, Nicholas and Richard HUFF, James DeBOTT, Abraham W. COVERT and Tennis COVERT, the last settlers of 1794.

JEMIMA WILKINSON
About 1790 the settlers went to Newtown, now known as Elmira, forty miles away, to buy groceries, seed and provisions. Feelings akin to pity and astonishment would steal over those of to-day could they know the incidents of those long and wearisome journeys through the woods on winding roads.
   They were accustomed to take their grists in canoes and boats across Seneca Lake to a mill near Penn Yan.
Among the strange character who made their appearance with early settlers was a woman named Jemima WILKINSON, who rode in style through the streets of Geneva in a coach on whose panels were the mystical characters, "C. F." which translated meant, "universal friend." Some flocked to see her to satisfy curiosity, while others became her followers. Among these latter was a party of settlers that followed the road made by CLINTON from Connecticut and, reaching Geneva, cut for themselves a road to Crooked Lake outlet, and established the mill mentioned above.
   Samuel BEAR, of Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, was the first settler on the south side of the river in what is now known as Scauyase. Here he established a grist mill in 1794, upon the site of the present "White Mills," erected by the firm of Pierson, Becker and <snip> that’s all I got.     GjS

2 DUCK HUNTERS LOST ON ICE IN WEEK-END STORM

Babylon, L. I., N. Y., Jan. 29 - Coast guards from Fire Island and Oak Island searched all to-day along the shores of Great South Bay and among the islets of the bay for Edmund A. PEARSALL and Jerome B. JEROME, both of East Islip, who started out duck shooting Saturday and failed to return.
All night bonfires blazed along the bay, kept burning by anxious friends of the missing men in the hope they might find their way to the beacons, But in view of the snow storm which hung all day over the bay, small hope was felt for the pair when they had not been found to-night.
There are several cottages, used by hunters, scattered about the islands in the bay and there was a faint hope left that PEARSALL and JEROME might have found shelter from the storm in one of these.
The ice which covered the bay broke up in the high wind during the night and friends and relatives of the missing men feared they had been drowned. They were last seen late Saturday, traveling together in their "scooters," small boats fitted with steel runners for crossing the ice.

MATRIMONIAL VENTURES CAUSE ARREST OF MAN MARRIED HERE IN NOV.

While alleged matrimonial ventures of Joseph G. BROWN, 24, of Palm street are being investigated by the police he is being held at police headquarters on a charge of vagrancy, but a more serious charge is likely to be made at the conclusion of the investigation. He was arrested this morning by Acting Detective LAMBIASE.

It was learned that on November 28 of last year he was married to Miss Catherine O'FLANAGAN of 159 Driving Park avenue by the Rev. S. J. CLARKSON of Monroe Avenue Methodist Church. They lived together here happily until word reached the bride that he had another wife.

When BROWN was asked as to the matter he said to have answered that he did have another one, but that a divorce was obtained in Pennsylvania. Then information came that the supposed first wife is living with their child in Batavia.

Having obtained her address in that place, Captain McDONALD called up and was informed by the first wife, who is now living at 112 Harvest street, Batavia, that she was married to BROWN on August 26, 1914. Prior to her marriage she was Bertha May HUTTON.

Asked as to the supposed divorce obtained in Pennsylvania, Mrs. BROWN Number 1 states that she had never heard of it, and it is not believed that any divorce could have been secured without her knowledge. After the receipt of this word it was decided to hold BROWN on the vagrancy charge.

It was said that he left wife Number 1 about a year ago and his whereabouts had been unknown to her.

Joseph G. BROWN, 24 years old, late of Batavia, but whose relatives reside in Palm street, this city, is under arrest at police headquarters on a charge of vagrancy. It is possible that more serious charges will be preferred against him after the police have concluded their investigation.
He was taken into custody yesterday by Detective Sergeant ANDREWS and Acting Detective LAMBAISE.
BROWN married Miss Catherine O'FLANNAGAN, 21 years old, of No. 159 Driving Park avenue, on November 28th last. The couple lived together quite happily until (unreadable) of the bride to the effect that her husband had another wife. The girl is said to have left her husband for the time being, declaring that he must clear away the cloud that rested over his head.
Eventually the matter was referred to the police for an investigation, and it was learned that BROWN was married to Miss Bertha May HUTTON, of No. 112 Harvest street, Batavia, on August 26, 1914. The couple have a child about 7 years old. When BROWN was taken into custody he is said to have admitted that he had been married before, but have declared that his wife had obtained a divorce from him. He said his first wife's sister informed him that he was divorced in Erie, PA. He said he thought he had a perfect right to marry again under such circumstances.
When the Batavia young woman was communicated with by telephone, she expressed surprise that her husband had married. She said she had not lived with him in more than a year and that she had no knowledge where he was. She said she had not begun proceedings in divorce, and had not meditated such a thing. She said she would never live with BROWN again, and cared little what occurred to him.
