  Events of a Week as Chronicled by the Man on the Street

 Guerdon Dibble, who resides in Bussy Hollow, sustained a shock Saturday morning.  He was at the barn milking and suddenly fell off the stool while seated beside a cow.  He was carried to the house and Dr. Gladstone summoned.  The left side is completely paralyzed.  While he has the use of his speech his mind is blank, although he was reported a little better Thursday morning.

 In a ball game Saturday between the Gerry Camp Boys and Delhi “kid” team at Delhi the Camp Boys won by a score of 9 to 8.

 Rev. Wm. P. Bruce and family of Yonkers, have arrived for their vacation and are stopping at John Fowler’s.

 Will Name Election Commissioners Under New Law

Chairman J. W. Dickson, complying with the new election law, has called a special meeting of the Board of Supervisors to convene…for the purpose of appointing two commissioners of election for Delaware county and fixing their salary.  This meeting will cost Delaware county about $350, and this if only the beginning of the added expense that will result from the new election law, and with no benefits derived, except to those who get the offices.  This must be a sample of Democratic economy.
