ITEMS OF INTEREST  — Newsy Notes Gathered From All Parts of the Empire State Telling About What Others are Talking About:

Frost did considerable damage in some sections of Sullivan and Delaware counties Tuesday night of last week. Corn was ruined in some places and fruit suffered generally.

A counterfeiters den in the heart of the city of Binghamton, opposite the county jail, was unearthed in a raid by United States Marshal S. Foster Black on Wednesday of last week. Many cleverly made molds for nickels, dimes and quarters were confiscated and J. C. Snell, a gunsmith, was arrested and held in default of $5,000 bail for the United States grand jury.

A woman seated upon a chair was the cause of the idleness of a large construction gang of the New York Telephone Company in Schenectady on Monday. When the men attempted to dig a hole for the erection of a pole in front of the residence of Russell W. Hinsie at 104 Johnson Street, they were interrupted by several female members of the family, who forbade them to proceed. The chair was occupied continuously while the men sat by on the opposite side of the street, enjoying the unexpected rest. The pole, if erected, would be located about three feet from the stoop. Officials of the company believe that the trouble can be speedily settled.

Village Notes

The “boys” and “girls” of Altamont participated in three old-fashioned hornings on Monday night. Their first visit was to the home of Mr. Raymond Osbonlighter, who recently took unto himself a wife, then to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Merlin L. Ogsbury on Grand Street where they were accorded a pleasant reception. From there they visited the new home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. St. John on Helderberg Avenue where Charley came forth and made the usual acknowledgements.
