From our own correspondent– A p r i l 29th, 1895—
The weather is warm and pleasant now.—Farmers are now busy with their spring work; some seeding has been done. Where fall grain was sown it looks well.
Mr. Wm. M. Chesney lost a cow last week. There has been quite a lot of sickness among cows this spring. Some of the farmers are losing their lambs when some weeks old.
Mr. D. Forbes has put up a very large barn this spring.
Mrs. A. Paul and her daughter Mrs. Marshall, of Ramsay, were visiting at Mr. John Munro’s on Saturday last.
Mrs. John Scott presented her husband with a young son last week.
Mr. M. Jackson, of Maberly, spent a few days with his parents last week.
There was no service in our village on Sabbath last.—The society of C.E. meets in Zion Church every Tuesday evening at 7:30.

Perth Courier, October 6, 1899
To The Editor of the Perth Courier:
It has lately come to my attention that a misleading and utterly false report has been circulating about me on the 12th July last in Perth. First of all, let me say that I was not in the company of any man that day and also that I did not taste a drop of drink of any kind except a cup of tea for my dinner; and that I left Perth before 5:00 that afternoon on the Lanark stage and was at my home at Watson’s Corners before dark. If it was necessary for me to do so I could get fifty people to prove that every word of the above was strictly true. Thank you so much for your space.
Very Truly Yours,
Mary McCulloch, Watson’s Corners
