John L. Hedden, who was in former years a prominent man in town affairs and has been a respected justice of the peace for many years, has for a long time been in feeble health. For the past few months his trouble has seemed to develop into softening of the brain, and his steady decline indicates that the end is not far off. His death was prematurely reported about town this morning but investigation proved the report to be false.

Forced From His Dugout.
Coonrod Adler, a well-known character of Palmyra, was taken to the county house Thursday. "Coonrod," as he is better known all over Palmyra, is a very eccentric personage and had lived alone on the outskirts of the village for the past twenty years, his sole companions being about a dozen vicious dogs. His home was nothing more than a hut and in passing it no one would ever know whether it was meant for the abode of man or beast. It is stated that he lived in a dugout near Palmyra for a number of years. "Coonrod" went to Palmyra from Bavaria, Germany, about forty years ago, and it is said that when he arrived in this country he had quite a little money. Occasionally he would leave his miserable quarters, which were located in a sand bank near the Central railroad, and stroll into Palmyra, where he would be the object of a good deal of attention, owing to his queer dress and hermit-like appearance.

Mrs. William Hungerford Starts on Hike.
"TO ILLINOIS," SHE SAYS
Her Answer When Questioned as She
Emerges from Canal Drenched to
Her Knees - Husband Left Her
Unprovided for - Mind Affected
Clyde, April 14.- Mrs. William H. Hungerford, of this village, a woman about 60 years of age, whose home is on the south side of the river, disappeared from her home on Wednesday evening last and her whereabouts are a mystery. On November 6th last Mrs. Hungerford's husband died. He was a Civil war veteran and left her unprovided for. Owing to the fact that Hungerford had been a deserter, the United States government refused to grant her a pension. This fact, together with her ill health, is supposed to have affected her mind.
On Wednesday evening last she was seen in Ford street with a satchel, and later she was seen walking on the bank of the canal about a mile east of Clyde. When asked where she was going she replied, "to Illinois." She crossed the canal at this point, the mud and water being nearly up to her waist. When on the opposite side of the canal she wrung the water from her clothing and proceeded on her journey east. That was the last seen of her by any one in this section.
From the Clyde Herald, April 19, 1916.
Mrs. Hungerford, widow of William H. Hungerford, a Civil War Veteran who died on November 5th last, has disappeared from her home in this village and her present whereabouts are not known. Last Wednesday evening she was seen on Ford street. She went east as far as the Putnam cooper shop and then was seen to wade across the Erie canal in mud and water up to her waist. On the opposite side of the canal she wrung the water from her skirts and then started east on the tow path. Before she started to leave the village she told someone one she was going to Illinois. She raised money by selling a watch and some of her household furniture. She is thought to be demented.

Kicked by a Horse.
Sodus, April 25.- Edward Sucher, who lives four miles southeast of this village, returned to his home about midnight in company with another boy, who left him at the gate, Sucher going to the barn with his horse alone.

The frontal bones were also crushed, and the boy rendered insensible. When he recovered consciousness he managed to walk to the house and went to bed. About an hour later his brother came home and discovered him in bed, with the pillow completely soaked in blood. He sent for Dr. J. F. Myers, who dressed the young man's wounds.

OLD FACTORY CLOSED.
Financial Difficulties of Jacob
Fisher, the Manufacturer.
Lyons, Jan. 22.- Sheriff Wheeler has seized a stock of stoneware in the Lyons pottery owned by Jacob Fisher for the Lyons National bank interests under a chattel mortgage and the plant is closed. The plant is the oldest stoneware factory in the State and was founded by N. Clark & Company in 1825. Later it was operated by Thompson Harrington and others. Jacob Fisher came here from Rochester in 1872 and rented the plant for five years and bought it in 1878. He rebuilt it of brick in 1899. Democratic administration of national affairs is attributed as the leading cause by Mr. Fisher for his reverses.
Some years ago some of his employes built a co-operative factory on premises adjoining the Fisher plant. The opposition plant was run in competition until last May when it was burned, and though rebuilt was not again occupied. In the meantime Mr. Fisher kept at work, but could not make up fully for his past reverses.

THE STOVE BLEW UP.
Work of Practical Jokers Caused Seri-
ous Injury to Philip Breisch.
Special to The Syracuse Herald.
Lyons, Feb. 13.- As the result of an alleged "practical joke," Philip Breisch a young man living in Alloway is laid up, badly cut about the face and head from a stove explosion, and coal gas poisoning. The "practical joke" was put up by boys who entered the school house and partially filled a coal pail with water.
Mr. Breisch is janitor at the brick school house in Alloway. Thursday evening he banked his fires and filled his coal pails. Early yesterday morning he went to the school house, shook down the fires and was in the act of filling a large heater, when the stove blew up as the pail was partly filled with water.
The doors, sides and top of the stove were blown off. Mr. Breisch had his face over the top of the stove and he got the full effects of the explosion. He was knocked over and lay on the floor nearly three h ours in an unconscious condition.
He was discovered by Miss Emma Hall, the teacher, who, upon arriving at the school house, found the odor of coal gas noticable from the hall way. Upon opening the school room, the odor was overpowering. She saw Mr. Breisch lying on the floor on his back unconscious and apparently dead.
She hurriedly summoned help. Dr. Ostrander was telephoned to at Junius. Mr. Breisch was taken to this home where it took two hours work to revive him. He is still very ill.

COMPLETELY SHUT IN.
Last "Straw" Breaks the Courage of Merchants and Farmers.
Special To the Herald.
SODUS, March 1.- The storm conditions are by far the worst of the season. In one hour last night six inches of snow fell. The blizzard raged several hours, piling the snow into drifts from three to seven feet high. This morning it commenced to rain and the snow is packed.
The Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg railway has been abandoned. Two freight trains are stalled here without coal or water. It is impossible to get a plow through.
The Rochester & Sodus Bay trolley road has six trains stalled at Williamson, and for the first time this season the trolley mail could not get through last night. The steam road mall was also abandoned. The trolley line is down, and the break cannot be located It probably will be three days before the roads can be opened. It is impossible to drive a team in the highways and free mail delivery is an impossibility. Merchants and farmers are completely discouraged.
The storm last night was accompanied by thunder and lightning.
SECTION HAND'S DEATH.
PAUSED AT HIS WORK TO WATCH A
FREIGHT GO BY.
As He Gazed, a Light Engine Struck Him
and Hurled Him into the Path of the
Train He Was Looking At.
NEWARK, March 1.- The section hand who was killed yesterday on the New York Central road, half a mile west of this village, was John Reahm, who lived at No. 133 Willow avenue, Newark.
Reahm, who was 57 years old and is survived by his widow and five children, had been clearing out a switch, and stopped to watch a freight train pass when a light engine came along and threw him from the track. His body was hurled over the cowcatcher into the path of the freight, where it was mangled horribly by the wheels. The remains were gathered up in a section car and placed in the toolhouse until Undertaker W. B. Roche removed them to his parlors in Palmyra street. Coroner George S. Allen has been notified and will make an investigation. Mr. Reahm had been in the employ of the railroad for about twenty-five years.

REPLACES THE MONEY STOLEN FROM
AN AGED WOMAN.
She Had Saved It Up to Pay Her Funeral
Expenses and Was Robbed by the Mean-
est Thief Ever Known.
WOLCOTT, Feb. 12.- The people of this village have subscribed and paid to Mrs. Malvina Kimpland the sum of $17, of which she was robbed last week.
Mrs. Kimpland, who is very old, and alone in this world, had saved up $17 towards paying the expenses of her funeral, and it was all the money she possessed. While she was away from home a short time an unknown thief entered the house and stole the money. As soon as this was known the people of the village declared it the meanest outrage they had ever known and immediately raised enough to reimburse the widow.
Note: in Glenside Cemetery, Town of Wolcott:

Three Important Inventions Now Being Experimented With.
North Rose, Feb. 20.- North Rose expects soon to have the honor of putting on the market some much needed inventions. George W. Marshall is experimenting on a new process whereby apples may be dried by steam. The apples as they leave the slicer pass to a series of endless belts under which are steam coils. Apples this way can be dried in three or four hours instead of about eighteen hours and will be whiter and better stock than under the present process. Also C. E. Burnett, assisted by James Boyd, jr., is making scales which are to be fastened on the under side of a wagon and will weight the load without unloading or driving on the platform scales. Mr. Burnett has also designed a castor which can move in any direction. This will be useful in moving large, heavy articles. These inventions are being tested, and if they come up to expectations a stock company will be formed and a factory erected.

NEWARK MAN BADLY
HURT IN RUNAWAY
Newark, May 30.- When the team he was driving fell in running away about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Daniel Wier, employed by W. B. Roche, a furniture dealer of this place, was thrown violently to the ground and received a fractured skull, which, it is thought, may result in his death. Dr. Raymond Sanford took Wier to St. Mary's hospital at Rochester last evening.
Wier was backing his team of young horses out of the sheds of the Farmers' hotel, near the New York Central tracks, and when he stepped down behind the animals to pick up a line that had fallen the team ran away. On reaching the track of the Newark & Marion railroad about half a block south of the hotel, the horses fell, and it was then that Wier received his injuries.

The remains of the poor unfortunates were buried decently by the authorities who have taken them in charge.

DEATH IN OHIO
AT AGE OF 104
Centenarian Who for Many
Years Was Canal Collector
on the Erie at Montezuma.
MONTEZUMA, Feb. 20.- George Robinson, 104 years old, died last Tuesday evening at the City hospital in Cleveland, O. He was the oldest man in Cuyahoga county and the oldest Odd Fellow in that State. Two weeks ago he contracted a severe cold which developed into pneumonia and was unable to withstand the disease. He leaves two daughters, Mrs. John Moore and Miss Hattie Robinson, both of Cleveland.
Mr. Robinson was born in New Jersey, June 6th, 1800, and went to Cleveland in 1896, where he has lived since. When a boy of eighteen, he broke his leg jumping in a college athletic contest, and through ineffective surgery had to have it amputated, so through 86 years of his life he had to hobble about on one leg. For twenty years he was collector of tolls on the Erie canal at Montezuma.
Despite his old age he could read without glasses and never used them in his life. He recollected distinctly events that occurred prior to the war of 1812. He was a confirmed tobacco user. He was well educated and wrote a fine hand, which showed no trace of the unsteadiness that would be natural in one of his age.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon and burial was in Woodland cemetery.

MAIL BAG FACTORY
Wrecked by Fire, With Heavy Loss and No Insurance.
THE ORIGIN IS NOT KNOWN
Six Thousand Government Pouches Ruined
and a Large Number of Persons Tempo-
rarily Deprived of Employment - Fire-
men Suffered Greatly in Intense Cold,
But Succeeded in Preventing More Ser-
LYONS, Feb. 18.- The Taylor mail bag factory in Geneva street was wrecked by fire at 4:30 o'clock this morning. The building is owned by Augustus E. Burnett and Charles H. Benjamin. The insurance is $500 and the loss exceeds that amount. The contents were owned by William Taylor and are not insured.
Stock of Pouches Ruined.
The fire was discovered in a corner on the first floor. About 6,000 mail pouches were in the building, nearly all of them complete. The loss on mail pouches and materials will reach nearly $20,000 and is without insurance. The machinery, it is thought, can be used again.
Loss of Work.
The loss is a severe one, about twenty-five employees at the factory being thrown out of work, while a number of people all over the village who did work on the pouches at their homes will be out of employment. It will be necessary to cut down the number of employees at the tannery also.
The origin of the fire is not known. It was bitterly cold and the firemen suffered greatly. The factory is situated in the worst frame range in the village and had it not been for the steel roof there would have been an extensive conflagration. The firemen did exceedingly well to confine the flames to the factory building.
Mr. Taylor has the contract for supplying the government with mail pouches. The quarters used were inadequate ad Mr. Taylor contemplated erecting a new factory this spring. He will be obliged to take immediate action as his contract provides for weekly delivery of pouches and the entire stock on hand is so badly damaged as to be valueless. Mr. Taylor has been carrying $50,000 of property for some time without insurance.
Burnett & Company sustained a water damage to coal in the rear of the factory, which was uninsured.

He was found about two miles from the Home. On his back was a heavy pack, made up of three overcoats, four shirts and several suits of underwear.

YOUNG MAN ROBBED
John Marshall of Lyons Black-jacked by Highwaymen.
LEFT GAGGED IN THE SNOW
Robbers Secured But $5 From Him,
But He is Now in a Serious Condi-
tion From the Assault and Gagging.
LYONS, March 13.- Three burglars attacked John Marshall, one of the firm of Charles H. Marshall & Son, last night in front of his store in the Cronise and Reals block and pounded him in the back, gagged him and took about $5 in change from him, then left him in the Converse coal yard, where he was found two hours later nearly dead, having ben mistaken for a drunken man. He is in a serious condition this morning.
Yesterday was pay day on the railroad, and the firm worked until late, Charles H. Marshall and his younger son retiring up stairs in the block near midnight, taking the money, leaving John at work on the books.
When he left the store three men grabbed him, demanding his money and keys. One man had a revolver. In the struggle a front window was broken, alarming the father up stairs. He dressed and came down, but meanwhile the burglars had gagged the son with a handkerchief and taken him down Elmer street.
Failing to find his son, Mr. Marshall went to the boy's house across the street and found he had not been there. Later his hat was found in the front of the store. The police were telephoned to, but could not be found.
Some time later Alderman Simmons, living in Elmer street, was awakened by hearing groans across the street, where he saw a man writhing in the Converse coal yard. Thinking it was a drunken man, Mr. Simmons got up, went to Marshall Sons' store and telephoned the police station, but in vain.
Finally he got Sheriff Collins, who came over and found the supposed drunk to be John Marshall, who was nearly dead from the black jacking and choking, the gag being shoved far down his throat. He had lain gagged in the snow for two hours. The young man is about 25 years old. His father is prostrated.

COSTS ON PLAINTIFF.
Judgment for only $80.12 Awarded by a Jury in Supreme Court.
LYONS, Feb. 5.- In Supreme court yesterday morning the jury in the case of the Forest City Paint and Varnish company against Welling G. Soule came in with a verdict for plaintiff of $80.12. This throws the costs upon the plaintiff.

This was the only excise indictment found by the grand jury.

MESSMER DAMAGE SUIT.
Action Settled Out of Court for $500-
Plaintiff Sued for $2,000.
LYONS, Feb. 3.- The action brought by Mrs. Frances Messmer, widow of Albert Messmer, against the village of Lyons, and which was on the calendar for trial at the February term of Supreme court, has been settled out of court for $500. The action was brought through Hamm & Knapp to recover $2,000 for internal injuries alleged to have been received in May, 1902, through falling upon a defective sidewalk in front of the Rooker property in Canal street. The settlement is thought to be a fair one for the village as the woman's injuries are said to be permanent.

The jury in the case of Henry Knapp against the trustees of the village of Clyde agreed upon a verdict of $1,000 for the plaintiff last night and handed it to Justice Dunwell this morning. This is the second trial of this action, the jury upon a former trial here in October last failing to agree. Damages are given to the plaintiff, a farmer living in Rose, for injuries to himself and his team on the night of April 6th, 1902, through driving off of a steep embankment at a dangerous and unprotected place on one of the streets in Clyde. The case has been stubbornly litigated.
In the case of John H. Gillette against Luzerne H. Spencer, the defendant being in default, Charles W.

The horse soon died, and this action was brought to recover the purchase price on the ground of misrepresentation.
LYONS, Feb. 3.- Supervisors Seaman, Sisson, Lauster, Norton and Little, appointed last month by Chairman Wilson of the Wayne County Board of Supervisors to meet with representatives of the Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern Railway company, are holding a session to-day, trying to agree upon the right of way through the County House farm. The Supervisors, out of deference to the old Board, have agreed to convey for $1,000, which the electric railroad people think is high. The temper of the Board, however, is such, that unless the proposition is accepted promptly, it will be withdrawn and a higher figure asked.
