THE LYONS REPUBLICAN
Friday, September 28, 1917
The following was transcribed from an original copy of "The Lyons Republican," Friday, September 28, 1917. This paper also traditionally carried quite a bit of news from other county towns. This is Part 2 of a multi-installment transcription.
HERE AND ABOUTS
The Board of Supervisors of the town of Sodus has employed Miss Agnes Reardon of Quincy, Mass., to take charge of the work of physical instruction in the schools of the township.
The Palmyra Fair opened yesterday and will continue today and tomorrow. This is the only fair in Wayne county this year and it looks as though it would be bigger and better than ever.
William Holtz, who left yesterday with the young men of the National Army for Camp Dix, Wrightstown, New Jersey, sold his carting business this week to Walter West.
A gold headed cane and gold cameo brooch were presented to Mr. and Mrs. John Jones of Palmyra Sunday when their four children gathered to celebrate the golden wedding anniversary of the couple. The couple were born in Henlis, Monmouth, England, and have nine grandchildren.
Some of the largest yellow tomatoes raised in this section are those raised by Almer Barclay. Mr. Barclay brought into The Lyons Republican office a basket of these tomatoes, one of which measured sixteen inches around and weighed one pound and seven ounces.
Elwin R. Smith of Rose, a thresher employed by Collings G. Wood, was robbed of $37 in Auburn Monday. Smith reported to the police that he chased a soldier several blocks in the effort to recover his property, but lost him in the crowd. Efforts to locate the thief were unsuccessful.
There is no Wayne County Agricultural Fair this year on account of the war and Newark has dispensed with its fair this year for the same reason. Palmyra is the only town in the county that is to have a fair. Everybody who wants to see a fair this year in Wayne county will have to go to Palmyra today or tomorrow.
Superintendent of Instruction R.O. Brundige of Ontario will have charge of the mobilization of school teachers in Wayne county for work in the second Liberty Loan campaign. Mr. Brundige has planned to ask the teachers to distribute information and instruction about government bonds and act as distributors and collectors of the subscription blanks.
Mrs. Charles Kreiss of Lock Berlin has ordered a Ford coupe of Agent F.W. Coffey. Fred Albrecht recently purchased a 1917 model Overland, and Fords have been bought by A.H. Fisher, A.W. Fisher, Ernest Smith and G.J. Wilson.
The old story of the handle slipping out of a jack resulted in Sam Trombino getting a terrific whack back of the head while at work in the Central car shops Tuesday morning and Sam will be laid up for some time, but he is able to walk around.
D.W. Gridley, American Express messenger, of Buffalo, helping unload a heavy casting at the local Central station was wedged between the casting and the car door Tuesday and was taken to the Barber Hospital, where bad bruises were dressed.
The death of David McDowell of Sodus occurred Wednesday. Mr. McDowell was 75 years old and a veteran of the Civil War. He is survived by a son, Charles McDowell, of Alton, and a daughter, Mrs. William Berkeley, of South Sodus.
"Harry Thaw," Louis Frick's horse, carried off first money in the first race at the Waterloo Fair Tuesday, and "Charles W.," owned and driven by Charles W. Wagner, came home with first money in the 2:18 pace. Both these Lyons horses have many followers around the county fair circuits.
William Kline, coming to town with a load of hay Tuesday, tipped over at the corner of Water and Broad streets and William was buried under the hay. A rescue party with his wife as captain was organized and William was dug out and the hay reloaded. No damage was done to the wagon or hay, and Mr. Kline was unhurt.
Hundreds of Catholics and others interested in the history of Onondaga county were present at Indian Hill, near Syracuse, Sunday to witness the unveiling of a granite shaft erected through the efforts of the Order of the Alhambra to mark the spot where Rev. Joseph M. Chaumont, S.J., offered the first sacrifice of the mass in New York State, Sunday, November 4, 1655.
George H. Greenagle has been helping Arthur Facer in South Lyons with his farm work for a few weeks and Tuesday when he was coming to town with a load of cabbage the team took fright and Mr. Greenagle was thrown off the load. He was taken to his home in Canal street where it was found that although no bones were broken he will be laid up for some time from the general shaking up.
E.A. Welcher & Sons of Newark last week threshed their wheat and got 205 bushels from four acres of land, or an average of 51 bushels and 1 peck to the acre. The wheat was raised from 6 bushels of seed and is the biggest yield per acre we have ever heard of in this locality, where the average crop will run around 20 bushels. If all wheat growers in the United States do as well as Mr. Welcher & Sons have done, Uncle Sam will pretty near "deliver the goods" in feeding the whole world.
A Lyons young man with an automobile party went to Geneva one night this week for a ride and stopped at a hotel for dinner. The head of the party wanted a new comb to fix up his hair with and sent a porter across the road to a drug store, and then sat down to wait for him. When Mr. Porter came back with an ice cream cone instead of a hair comb there was more excitement for a few minutes than Geneva has seen in a long time. And the Lyons young man will never hear the end of it.
Mrs. Magdalena Bauer, widow of Frank Bauer of West Lyons, died at her home Saturday. She was 82 years old and was born in Wingen, Alsace.

Signs bearing the information "One Mile to Presbyterian Church" are posted a mile each way from Fairville, and all tourists in that section on Sundays are invited to attend services at the church, of which Rev. Leslie Farnsworth is pastor. This is one of the very few churches in the country marked this way, and it would not be surprising to know that it was the only church to which road signs point the way.
BOARD BUYS LYONS SITE FOR HOSPITAL
The Wayne Board of Supervisors, at its session Friday morning, passed a resolution whereby the buildings and twelve acres of land will be purchased from Fred Gansz, of Lyons, for tuberculosis hospital purposes.
Gansz property is located on a high hill, just inside the eastern village limits, has a southern exposure and is known as "Albany Hill." The property is, to a large extent, isolated. The purchase price is $5,000, and the local municipal board has agreed to stand $1,000 of the expense of continuing the water mains to the hospital.
Downing property, located in Macedon, was the site agreed upon by the committee appointed by the Board of Supervisors, but there was so much opposition to this site that the idea was given up in favor of the Lyons site.
The contract for the new hospital must be let by January 1st next, and the building must be ready to receive patients on or before July 1st of that year. A superintendent must be appointed from a list to be made by civil service examinations. Certain special experience is a required qualification. In some counties the superintendent of the tuberculosis hospital draws $1,000. In others the pay is $1,200 and still higher in others according to the amount of work performed. The Wayne county hospital will contains beds for thirty patients. The law stipulates that the number of beds must correspond to the number of deaths from tuberculosis in the county the past year. That number in this instance is thirty. Drs. Sheldon, Killip and Robinson in making 1,028 examinations thus far for military service have found a dozen cases of tuberculosis, some pronounced and others incipient, they report.

The death of Mrs. Charles J. Mirick (Hannah L. Foist) occurred at her home in Toledo, Ohio, September 10th, aged 80 years.

She was born in the town of Galen, December 1, 1837, and was married in Galen fifty-seven years ago the 26th of September. Surviving besides her husband are one son, J.F. Mirick, of Toledo; one daughter, Mrs. W.A. LaGore of Detroit, Mich., and two granddaughters, Ruth Elsie Mirick and Gladys Irene La Gore.

George Henry Baltzel
The death of George Henry Baltzel, 66 years old, one of the best known business men of the town of Lyons, occurred at his home in Broad street Tuesday morning after an illness of about a year. Death followed a general breakdown.
The funeral will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the late home, Rev. Albert Heyd officiating. Services at the grave in Rural Cemetery will be conducted by Lyons Lodge of Elks.
George Henry Baltzel was born in Lyons July 6, 1851, eldest son of the late Henry Baltzel, one of the pioneer Lyons merchants. When only a boy, Mr. Baltzel started to learn the shoemakers' trade. One of the first duties that came to him was to drive to Clyde with hides and then get them when they were tanned. This was when he was only twelve years old. At that time twenty shoemakers were employed in the Baltzel shoe shop. In those days all worked from seven o'clock in the morning until 10 o'clock at night. That was considered a fair day's work.
Mr. Baltzel was born in the living apartments over the shoe store. The old building now stands in the rear of the Baltzel block, where it was moved when the block was built. In 1878 Mr. Baltzel took over the shoe store from his father and conducted the business up to the time of the fire which cleaned out the stock about six years ago. After that the business was taken over by H.D. Ungerer, who is the present proprietor.
Although prominent in Democratic politics all his life, Mr. Baltzel never sought election to an office, but about four years ago his party called him to take the nomination for Supervisor and he was elected for one term. Shortly after that he was appointed a member of the Lyons Municipal Board, which was created to take charge of the building of the new water and sewer system, and he devoted much of his time to that work until failing health compelled him to resign from the board about a year ago. Mr. Baltzel did not believe in life insurance or fraternal societies, until Lyons Lodge of Elks was organized. Shortly after that he became a member of the Elks and was one of the first to take out a life membership. He attended the national convention of the order in Los Angeles and he had been to several state conventions. He was a member of the Broad Street Lutheran Church.
In 1885 with his brother, William H. Baltzel, he built the Baltzel Block, and in 1878 the Baltzel Hotel, at the time the finest business buildings in Lyons. The deceased had long been considered one of the soundest men financially in the town of Lyons.
Surviving members of the family are his mother, Mrs. Salome Baltzel; two brothers, William H. and Charles M. Baltzel; two sisters, Mrs. Clarence A. Phillips of Lyons, and Mrs. George A. Tromer of New York; also several nephews and nieces.
