        Leo Mullen has purchased the old grist mill in this village and will operate it. This mill is one of the several old landmarks in this section. It was built in the early days and for a great many years it was operated by the late William Allen. He disposed of it to Robert Melrose who conducted it for many years before retiring and for a great many years it was the only mill within many miles of this village where grinding was done, both flour and feeds.

        Thomas Quinlan recently visited relatives and friends in Ogdensburg.

        Atta, the youngest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. T. A. E. Young, was given a surprise recently by a number of her young friends, the occasion being her eleventh birthday. A most enjoyable evening was spent the program concluded with elaborate refreshments.

        Leo M. Mullen has recovered from his recent illness and is again able to resume his duties in his store. There have been many ill in this place with colds and la grippe but the disease has subsided considerably at late.
