MARRIED IN MARION.
Marion Enterprise: A pleasant gathering of relatives and friends took place Wednesday evening, Sept. 23, '96, at the residence of the bride's parents in Marion, N.Y., when Emma S. Forster and Fred H. Pollock of Fairville were married. The presents were quite numerous and valuable.
MAKE HIM SPIT.
Wolcott News:- A Savannah farmer is reported to have seen an advertisement recently from a man in Portland, Me., for curing a horse of slobbering, for only 50 cents. So the Savannahite, having a horse that slobbered badly, promptly bought 25 two-cent stamps and sent them to the enterprising Yankee, who by return mail gave him this terse advise: "Teach your horse to spit." This is about on a par with the recipe for preventing army worms from destroying one's crops. It cost a dollar and was a printed slip which read: "Don't plant any crops."

A Fire in Wolcott.
The fine and almost new building of Casper Spahr, located in Main street, in Wolcott, two stories below and two stories about the street, occupied by him as a restaurant - the family occupying the upper rooms as living apartments, was discovered to be on fire in the basement about 2:30 Wednesday morning. The alarm was quickly sounded, and the fire department was promtly (sic) on the ground. The smoke was so dense inside that Mr. Spahr came near being suffocated before he could make his escape which he effected by raising one of the front windows and letting himself down to the sidewalk by means of a rope. In three-quarters of an hour the roof fell in and the walls reeled and came down with a terrible crash burying the entire contents of the building, furniture and all in one furious mass of flame. Not a thing was taken from the building. Mrs. Spahr and daughter were absent from home, at Wood's Island where they had been a week or more. There was no one in the building but Mr. Spahr. His loss is estimated at $8,000. He has insurance on the building, $2,000; on furniture, $1,500; on fixtures in restaurant, $400. He lost all his private papers, such as policies of insurance, deeds, etc. The origin of the fire is a mystery, occurring as it did in the basement, where there had been no fire for months.
Fell From a Bridge.
C. Fred Guenthner, of Lyons, returned from Syracuse last Thursday evening on the West Shore train, and when the train reached Lyons was asleep. The conductor discovered that Mr. Guenthner wanted to get off at Lyons just as the bridge over the Canandaigua outlet had been passed and stopped the train and let him get off there. Mr. Guenthner then started for the depot, but in crossing the bridge missed his footing, and fell into the river twenty feet below. Although much bruised he managed to get out and reach home in safety, but with the loss of hat and some money. His physician, Dr. Putnam, thinks that he may be injured internally.

Frank Campbell, of South Butler, had a narrow escape from instant death Thursday afternoon. He was engaged in putting up air pipes on a tobacco shed on a farm owned by Caywood & Reed, about a mile west of the village, when a bracket broke, letting him fall a distance of twenty-four feet to the ground. G. L. Sayre also fell, but caught another bracket and fortunately drew himself up. Mr. Campbell was taken up unconscious and carried into the shed, and later to his home, where Dr. W. J.

ABLAZE FROM GASOLINE.
North Side of Main Street Had a Scare Last Saturday Noon.
The north side of Main street, Wolcott came near getting a serious scorching at noon Saturday.
George Vought, a tailor, sublet the front room over the Candy Kitchen a few months ago from Mrs. Mabye, who has the flat there from Hammer Bros., owners of the building.
Vought was cleaning clothes in the front, having a dish full of a mixture of water and gasoline. The rear of the room was separated from the front by a curtain. Back of the curtain was a stove in which there must have been a light, for Vought heard the swish of the gas as it lighted. It set the curtain ablaze. Vought was burned before he could smother the fire which was on his hands and arms.
The alarm sounded while people were at dinner. The fireman responded promptly and there was tall hustling (?) when they knew where the fire was.
Not a drop of water went into the building. The chemicals and the hooks with their portable tanks tended to the business and did it promptly.
The chemicals put up a ladder from a front window and confined the blaze to the room where it started.
The stuff from the chemical retorts ran through the floor into Poulakis Bros' Candy Kitchen, soaking down their candy with the acid, both inside the show cases and outside. Poulakis Bros. were insured with George P. Graves for $1,800. What their loss is remains to be determined, as Mr. Graves was in New York at the time of the fire.
Vought received quite severe burns on both hands and arms, with touches on his face. He is going about since the fire with both hands helpless from bandages. A subscription paper has been started for his benefit.
Card of Thanks.
I wish to thank the firemen for their fine work at the fire Saturday noon, and also my friends who have come to my relief in a financial way.

STEPHEN T. SABIN, Company F.
Watkins, Iowa, May, 1890. I was born in the town of Ontario, Wayne county, N. Y., on the 4th day of August, 1843. At the age of five years my mother died and I went to live with an uncle. My father, after three years, married again. I then went home to live, and went to village school. Shortly afterwards my parents moved to Walworth, Wayne county, N. Y., where I worked on a farm and went to school winters till sixteen years of age; then I left home and worked as a farm laborer till July 26, 1862. I enlisted in Company F, 108th Regiment, New York Volunteers (Captain F. E. Pierce), left with the regiment for the front in August and participated in all the battles till at the battle of Gettysburg I was wounded in the left heel and lay in the field hospital for two weeks and was then sent to Jarvis Hospital at Washington, D. C. Remained there till the following January, when I was sent to Camp Distribution, Va., and from there was transferred to the Veteran's Reserve Corps and assigned to Company F, 24th Regiment, quartered in the barracks, corner of 7th and 0 streets, Washington, D. C., doing guard and patrol. I was present at the second inauguration of President Lincoln as guard. I also stood guard over Secretary Seward's house after the assassination of President Lincoln and the attempted assassination of Secretary Seward. I also helped guard the conspirators at the old capital prison.
On the 28th day of June, 1865,1 received my discharge and returned home to Wayne county, N. Y., where I remained till the following October, when I went to Benton, Ia., and worked by the month as a farm laborer. In 1867 I was married to Miss Ann E. Brown and afterwards bought some land and went to farming and have resided here ever since - about one-half mile from the village of Watkins, on the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad, and about nineteen miles west of Cedar Rapids. My family consists of three sons and one daughter.
Stephen T. Sabin,
Late Company F, 108th New York Volunteers.
FREDERICK FREY, Company F.
West Walworth, N. Y., May 4th, 1890. I was born in Tommelhardt, Wirtemberg, Germany, September 13th, 1835; went to school from the age of six to fourteen years, then followed the occupation of farming until I was twenty-one years old, when I came to this country, leaving my native land January 8th, 1857, arriving in New York, February 19th of the same year. I then started for Rochester, N. Y., where I had friends. I then took up the occupation of farming near that city, in which business I continued till the time of my enlistment, August 4th, 1862, at Sweden Center, Monroe county, New York State; was examined and sworn in, joining the regiment at Rochester. I was transferred to Company F, 108th Regiment New York Volunteers (Captain F. E. Pierce's Company), and leaving with the same on the 19th of the same month for the front. I was in every engagement in which the 108th participated from Antietam to Reams' Station, some twenty or more. At that battle 1 was taken prisoner and sent to Libby prison, also Belle Isle and Salisbury, N. C. In these three prisons I remained six months, at which time I was paroled and exchanged at City Point and sent to parole camp at Annapolis, Md.; there I received a thirty days' furlough and came to Rochester, N. Y.
In all the battles I took part in I only received a slight scratch, losing the tip end of my nose and having my gun shot from my hands. This was at Gettysburg battle. I also got knocked down with a minnie ball while making a charge with the regiment at Laurel Hill, and, but for my having my canvas tent and rubber blanket wrapped across my breast, I should probably have been killed, as the ball struck me over the heart, and, as stated before, knocked me senseless, the ball going through two or three thicknesses of the canvas. I was in the hospital but once, leaving the regiment soon after the battle of Chancellorsville, going to Acquia creek, and from there sent to Washington, D. C. I then joined my regiment at Frederick City, Maryland, a few days before the battle of Gettysburg. Nothing of any importance took place from this battle until our retreat at Mine Run, at which time I received a sun stroke from over marching and heat, from the effects of which I have never fully recovered.
I was at Rochester on my furlough at the time of General Lee's surrender, and when the same expired I returned to the front and remained with my regiment until I was discharged, returning home with them.
I resumed my old occupation, farming, and which I am at up to the present time.
About two years after my discharge I was married, and have raised a family of eight children, five boys and three girls; the oldest is twenty-two and the youngest is six years. I have resided in the vicinity of Rochester since my return from the army, and at the present time my residence is West Walworth, Wayne County, N. Y.

I can remember so many brave men who belonged to it; I can remember so many brave things performed by them, that I am glad some enduring record for their children and children's children is to be made. I do not know how much of a sketch you wish, and if in the accompanying sketch I put in too much, you can cross it out, and if you wish anything more you can write me.
I, Harmon S. Hogoboom, was born August 12th, 1834, in Arcadia, Wayne County, State of New York. Lived on the farm where born until 1851. Taught school until 1853, then spent four years at Genesee College, Lima, N. Y., graduating in 1857. Married the same year Miss Susan M. Bain, a graduate of the same college. Afterwards went to Cleveland, Ohio, and attended law school and graduated in 1859.
Removed to Rochester, N. Y., and was admitted to the bar at that place in 1860, and practiced law until May 14th, 1861, when I enlisted as a private in Company D, 13th New York Volunteers, Captain Lebbeus Brown, for three months. Was at first Bull Run and wounded slightly in the arm. and was discharged August 7th, 1861, term of service having expired. On July 29th, 1862, I was commissioned captain of Company B, 108th New York Volunteers; was in the battle of Fredericksburg, Va., and March 2d, 1863, was commissioned major of the regiment; was in the battles of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, and on August 7th, 1863, my resignation was accepted and I was discharged on surgeon's certificate of disability. Shortly after the war I moved to Janesville, Wis.; engaged in the coal business until 1884; I then moved to Idaho Territory and engaged in mining until 1886, when I removed to Campbell, Minnesota, and engaged in farming until the present time. I have one son living named Franklin D. Hogoboom, who is engaged in general merchandising at Wahoo, Nebraska.
Very truly your friend,
Harmon S. Hogoboom.

FORTUNE LEFT TO WATCHMAN
Relatives of Wealthy Miner Live in Lyons.
ESTATE WORTH $2,000,000
Simon Hasselbach Only Known Near Descendant of Millionaire - Creager Family May Share in the Estate.
Lyons, Aug. 17 - Information has been received from California, which leads Simon Hasselbach, Henry Creager and Fred G.
Creager, of this village, to believe that they are shortly to share in the estate, estimated at $2,000,000, of the late
Henry Hasselbach, a miner, who amassed his money in South American mining fields.
Henry Hasselbach was born in Germany and left that country when young, to evade military service. He went to South America and fell in with a lot of mining prospectors. The rest of the party either tired of the strenuous life or died. Hasselbach struck it rich and died a bachelor a short time ago, leaving about $2,000,000 in gilt-edged securities.
Simon Hasselbach, of this village, is a nephew of the dead miner and will receive, it is claimed, upwards of $150,000 from the estate. The late Mrs. Theodore Creager was a niece of the millionaire, and her children, two of whom, Henry and Fred C. Creager live here, will inherit the share coming to their mother, which will amount to about $150,000.
Attorneys who have looked the matter up say that the fortune awaits the rightful claimants, who have only to present their claims properly verified. There are eight of the Creager heirs. Simon Hasselbach is the only known near descendant. He is at present employed by the Lyons Beet Sugar Refining company as a watchman. Fred G. Creager is a clerk at John M. Hattler's department store, while Henry Creager, his brother, is a foreman in the George Marzolf cigar factory.
PIECE OF IRON PIERCES A CLYDE DWELLING
Hurled Over the Heads of Spectators During Fireworks Display - Used as Support for Bombs.
Clyde, Aug. 17 - An accident occurred Tuesday evening while the Stella de Italia fireworks display was
in progress that causes some of the spectators to shudder as they learn the facts.
A piece of iron, about six inches square, was used to support the sky-rockets and bombs as they were let off.
All the force of one of the pieces, in some strange manner, got behind that fragment of iron and it was hurled through the air just over the heads of the crowd.
Yesterday the iron was found in one of the rooms of the William Sly residence, a little east of the West Shore station. It had gone through the side of the house, making a hole like a small cannon ball.

Investigation of a Death.
Charles M. Hammond, 57 years old, a tailor, died August 9th in the Monroe county penitentiary. The prison officials were unable to find his relatives and, in accordance with the law, sent the body to Cornell College Medical school, where it was partly dissected. When the widow, Mary Hammond, of 296 Central avenue, learned where the body had been sent, she recalled it. Seeing the dissecting scars on the head, she thought her husband might have suffered foul play and so told the police. Investigation showed that Hammond died of alcoholism. [Note: this took place in Rochester. A demise to consider when you have a particularly elusive relative.]

VILLAGE TO BE READY TO COPE WITH FIRE
Red Creek Business Men Start Project to Form and Equip a Company. - Good Material Available.
Red Creek, Aug. 15 - Plans are well under way toward the formation of a volunteer fire company here. At a meeting of interested citizens held recently a committee of five business men was appointed to make the necessary arrangements by which an organization will be established.
The men of this place have long had an enviable reputation as the fire fighters and on two different occasions have saved a wooden building from destruction during the burning of a brick block, which was separated from the block by only a narrow driveway. But lack of proper apparatus and organization prevented them from coping with a fire which gained headway in a building, although they have usually been able to prevent its spread to other buildings.
The citizens' committee, which has had charge of the local entertainment course, will devote the proceeds of this year's course to the equipment of the fire company and it is expected that this, with some other available funds, will furnish the village with up-to-date apparatus with which to fight fire. At least one of this year's entertainments will be given by home talent and of course this will net the committee much larger profits than those furnished by the bureau.
This place has had no serious fire in many years, but the citizens prefer to take no more chances. Some of the older residents can remember the fateful night when practically the entire village was destroyed. Since then the Van Alstyne block was twice burned, but during the last ten years practically nothing has been destroyed by fire. The present condition of affairs also compels owners to pay much higher insurance rates than they would if more ample protection from fire was available.
WALDORF FAMILY REUNION.

Sodus Center, Aug. 15 - The seventh annual reunion of the Waldorf family, regarded as the largest organization

Lyons, Aug. 15 - An order obtained by Hamn & Knapp before Justice Foote was entered at the county clerk's office yesterday, granting that County Treasurer Bashford pay over moneys in the hands belonging to Oscar M. Folger, one of the defendants in the partition action of Ada DeBoofer against Carrie Brisbee and others. The amount of Folger's share is $350. A bond of $750 was filed.
APPLE GROWERS SELL FRUIT ON THE TREES
Product of Wayne County Orchard Brings 55 Cents a Bushel - Others Range All the Way from 35 Cents.
Wolcott, Aug. 15 - Although it is yet early in the season, a large part of the apple crop in this section has been sold to local dealers. For some time past there has been a brisk market and practically all of the orchards of good quality, which have a fair crop, have been sold at good prices.
The indications now are that there will not be over a third of a crop in this section, and this average is uneven in distribution. Some orchards have 50 per cent. of a crop, while others have scarcely any. A large orchardist who last year had 15,000 bushels, will this year have about 3,000 bushels, and they will be borne largely by trees which did not bear last year. The quality will also average poor.
Local dealers say that outside of fifteen or twenty orchards scattered through Huron, Butler, Wolcott and Rose, there is not 15 per cent, of last year's crop. These few good orchards have already been bought up at prices which will be remunerative to the grower. In at least one instance, an orchard hs been sold at 55 cents a bushel, while others have been sold at 35, 40 and 50 cents.
Evaporator owners are slow about buying, although many of them have closed contracts for future delivery of dried fruit. Heavy contracts are made at 5 and 5 1-2 cents, which prices do not warrant high prices for the fruit. Farmers feel that apples are sure to bring a good price and consequently are not at all anxious to sell to the evaporators, preferring to barrel as much as possible of the fruit and sell the remainder for what it will bring.
