Ottawa Journal 1890
“Mr. J. H. Allan intends to begin butter making in his creamery on Bell Street next week. Mr. John Echlin, a graduate of the Provincial Dairy School will assist.”
“It might have been good intentions, but one thing is certain, that the floor of our fire hall is “mighty poor.” A glance at that floor now or any time since it has been occupied is that it is scaling off in large patches.”
“The town newspapers lament about the cheap excursions offered to Ottawa and blames the C.P.R. for lost business. All merchants from smaller towns are uttering loud protests for taking their constituents too cheaply to the larger centres of departmental business and losing business in our fair towns”.
“The proposed horticultural society is forming beautifully. It is now understood by the membership list now at the Herald office, that the women contain excellent stamina“.
