THE CLYDE TIMES (Clyde, NY)
April 26, 1888
The following was transcribed from an original copy of The Clyde Times, a 4-page newspaper published in Clyde, NY. This newspaper published day-to-day news for the town of Galen and communities in eastern Wayne county towns. All spellings are as in the original and will not be "corrected." As our volunteer time is at a premium and the transcription takes a long time to do, the tedious process of bolding names individually wasn't done.

The wart on the face of Gen. Grant, which is faithfully reproduced in his portraits on the genuine $5 silver certificates, is lacking in the counterfeit, and its omission furnishes a ready means of detection.
Doing Business Every Day.
The Granite and Marble business of E. B. Wells, established in 1860, is still continued by him, under the management of Mr. John Bowmaster. Persons contemplating purchasing anything in this line should call and examine work and prices at this establishment. We have between seventy and eighty finished monuments, in granite and marble, on hand to select from - an opportunity presented by no other similar firm in Western New York. Our prices are the lowest and our work the best. An inspection of our stock will prove what we say.
