Greenwood - 10 Nov. 1882

Editors Times: Election is over, and a little lull is local politics may be expected.

Mrs. John Stewart has gone to Canada with her two boys to spend the winter, while Mr. Stewart will go into camp.

Geo. Begley has the daisy for a lamp, giving six bright jet lights and is used without chimney.

John Syth has just returned from a trip to his old Canada home.

Jno. Stewart’s last brother in Canada has just arrived in town. The continual coming from Canada reminds me of an incident which happened in the army while we were encamped in Virginia. We received 300 conscripts one day to fill the ranks of our regiment, and on the first night no less than 55 deserted and went to the rebel lines. On the following day a rebel officer sent word through the picket lines to our officers that if we would send over some flags he would organize a New Hampshire regiment over there, (the regiment in question being a N. H. regiment) and it makes one think, as we have so many Canadians here that if Her Majesty, the Queen of England, would send over one of her Prime Ministers we might organize a colony loyal to Her Majesty. We find the great American shores, of which we are so prond (proud), open for the incoming of all nationalities, for it is here that labor never goes unrewarded.

The latest arrival is May Geniveve, a girl now four days old at the residence of A. S. Eaton. The mother and child are doing finely. Mrs. C. F. Stone, sister of Mrs. Eaton, is now visiting her.

The glass ball tournament match, which was announced in last week’s issue, between the Greenwood Gun Club and Merrillan Club came of as announced, Nov. 4 at Merrillan, and resulted in a victory for the Greenwood club. The contest was very close, and lots of money changed hands during the shoot. Our club is under fasting obligations for the courtesies extended by the Merrillan club and C. N. Davis, of the Blair House, deserves more than a special mention for his popularity and generosity.

Len Eastman’s bee hive of industry is turning out logging sleds to our lumbermen by the dozens. All work entrusted to him will be done in good shape, and upon time as per agreement. Give him a call.

A. S. Eaton has just received a lot of winter apples to sell by the barrel. He also has one new tenant house for rent left.
