FORTY YEARS AGO.

Swallowed a Pin.

Mrs. Mary J. Wright, a young married lady of Clarskville, accidentally swallowed a pin on last Friday nigh week, which becoming lodged in the throat, is likely to be attended with serious if not fatal consequences. This should be a warning to young ladies who are in the habit as so many of them are, of, holding pins in their mouths constantly. - - Mar. 16, 1871


Women's Suffrage.

The Long discussed question of Woman's Suffrage was decided at the Institute last Friday evening in favor of giving the ballot to the ladies by a majority of one. Some men who have not heretofore been classed with the long-haired reformers favored the elective franchise.
