Altamont Enterprise August 26, 1921


On Labor day, Sept. 5, the Knox baseball team will play the Stanford Heights Bloomer Girls at Knox. The Bloomer Girls are one of the few teams of girls in the country, and there should be a record attendance at this game. The girls have lost only a few games this year, and then only by close scores. The admission is 25 cents. 



Many from this place are planning to attend the Altamont Fair, to be held in September. 



— D. H. Arnold and Raymond Gossman made a business trip to Voorheesville Monday evening. 

— Little Henry B. Adriance who sustained a severe injury to his knee by falling on glass is so far recovered as to get around without the use of crutches. Dr. Brewster of Berne attended him. 



— The cottage and barn on Quaker Street hill look bright in their new coat of paint. 

— The young folks and their seniors to the number of half a hundred held a corn roast and a general time at Durfee’s woods on Tuesday evening. 

— The Stanford Heights Bloomer Girls played ball at Jones pond last Sunday afternoon with the Quaker Street team. About 500 people witnessed the game. Miss Shear at second and in the pitcher’s box. The score was 15 to 13 in favor of Quaker Street. 

— Charles Crotty, a young man who lived here when a boy, was in town calling on old friends. 



— S. J. Daring, who recently spent his vacation at Racquet Lake, returned home with a fine string of black bass, which he dealt out to several of his friends for a guest fish dinner. Mr. Daring is an adept at fish catching, that is sure. 

— The ball game to have been held here Saturday afternoon, was scheduled to be played between the teams of Altamont and New Scotland. It did not take place, as the Altamont team did not put in an appearance, thereby forfeiting the game to New Scotland, 0 to 0. Later, word was telephoned to the team here, that Altamont failed in an attempt to get their team to-gether. 



Mrs. Millard Severson recently received a new electric washing machine, the gift of her father-in-law Charles Severson.
