I found this when doing research this weekend and I decided to document it. Everyone needs to be remembered especially Margaret Herbert of Lanark Village who died way too young.

LANARK VILLAGE NEWS-Almonte Gazette- November 1887

A drove of twenty horses belonging to Edwards & Co. passed through here last week enroute for the lumbering camps of that firm.

Three large flocks of fine looking lambs passed through here last week for Boston. They had been purchased in the townships of Darling, Dalhousie and Lanark by Messrs. Balderson, T. R. Bulloch and Alex. McIntyre.

The sale of bakery business reported in last week’s issue was of short duration. As Mr. Hunter could not make amicable arrangements with a baker he backed out, and Mr. R. R. Drysdale has invested and employed Mr. F. Z. Webster to run the business while he still retains his position in Mr. R. Robertson’s general store.

On Saturday last Mr. M. Carborie, of the 8th line Lanark, laid a wager of $5 with his neighbour, Mr. J. Kenney, that there was not a team within a mile that could draw a certain huge stone on his farm. He. was taken up, and the money was placed in the hands of a third party. Mr. Doyle’s team was chosen, and drew the stone 17 feet in 9 minutes, beating the specified distance and time by 2 ft. and 6 min. respectively, and Mr. C. had to fork over the money, much to his astonishment. Be more careful in future, Michael.
