Accident Last Tuesday morning Jacob Rossman, Ira McIntire and Louis Sontag started for Humbird with a team and buggy belonging to Neverman and Sontag, and when near Palmer & Boardman’s Mill one of the tugs becoming detached the pole dropped to the ground from which the horse took fright and ran, throwing Mr. Rossman to the ground, breaking his left leg just above the ankle. Mr. Rossman was also badly bruised on his hips and back, but his injurious, aside from a fractured limb, are not considered of a serious nature. Mr. R. was brought to his home in this village the evening after the accident occurred when Dr. Crandall rendered what medical assistance his case required. He has suffered much from the injuries received.

Greenwood Last Tuesday afternoon we paid our first visit to the village of Greenwood, in company with Mr. Henry Myers, (usually called Hank, for short,) who kindly attended as guide and traveling companion, filling the bill to perfection in either capacity. During our stay in that village we were quartered under the hospitable roof of Mr. W. H. Begley, than whom non spread better cheer or offer better accommodations to the hungry, weary traveler.

Mr. H. W. Sheldon who has become associated with Mr. James O’Neill in his law practice, is from Canton, St. Lawrence county, New York. He is a graduate of St. Lawrence University; is an able lawyer, and possesses rare social and business qualities. The firm of O’Neill & Sheldon possess not only ability, but the disposition to deal fairly and honorability with all who may entrust business to their care. They cannot fail to succeed.

Tom Chadwick, Robert Christie, and several others residents in that neighborhood, have fitted up a face track in the public highway commencing near Chadwick’s residence and running north. It is a splendid half mile track, and they are the "boys" to make it yield them an immense amount of sport in return for what it cost them to put it in shape. The first, or opening race is to come off at two o’clock this afternoon, wind and weather permitting. A good time is what they are after.

Mr. C. A. Youman having decided to give up his agency for musical instruments will sell the instruments he now had on hand, if purchasers are found between this and the first of September, at special rates. Call early and secure a bargain.
