The case of Mrs. Stephen Haywood Senior of Plainfield awakens deep sympathy in a large circle. Six years ago one of her eyes became impaired, resulting, after the lapse of 3 years, in its entire loss. Meanwhile the other eye, double prized, becoming similarly affected, she went to Boston last winter to consult with an eminent eye doctor. After examination, thinking thereby to arrest the trouble, he recommended the removal of the blind eye. Unfortunately this advice, well meant, was adopted, and the next day witnessed the operation. Almost immediately the sight of the only remaining eye ceased, leaving her as she is now, and probably will continue to be totally blind. The means used to secure relief hastened the dreaded result.

The late Samuel White of Plainfield was the father of 17 children. He attained the great age of 94, having lived with his wife 64 years. Living about 2 miles from the church, he was regular in his attendance, and uniformly an attentive listener. Even after his 90th year, he might be seen passing to the sanctuary on foot, usually preferring to walk than to ride. Fond of music, having a good voice and ear, he was at one period of his life leader of the choir. Son of the foregoing, living on the same place, Orson White is a rare performer on the violin, known on the hills as the Ole Bull of Western Massachusetts [named after a famous Norwegian violinist ] whose services, by means of his instrument, has contributed much to the acceptable performances of the choir. His daughter, Mrs. Theodore Shaw of Springfield, has a very superior soprano voice, well cultivated, and his grand-daughter gives indication of being no less distinguished for musical talent. It should be added that Lucinda White, an adopted son of Orson [That's what it says, son], possesses unusual musical abilities, able to play on 4 or 5 instruments, another member of the Plainfield choir.

Hampshire County items

A few mornings since, a boy, Carey C. Ayres of Plainfield, a wide awake chap who is up to a trick or two when it comes handy, living with Merritt Jones in that town, was sent to the cellar for some soap. He returned very suddenly with the soap, but "soft soap" in his eye, as Mrs. J. thought, to be applied indiscriminately to herself and better half, declaring that he had seen a "critter". He clung persistently to his assertion, notwithstanding the laugh and blackguard he had to endure.

/ Nothing more was thought of the matter till the following morning, when he, with another boy, visited the scene of his fright the previous day, and the veritable "critter" of the day before asserted his authority and contested their right of way. then they yelled. Mr. Jones, still thinking of 'soft soap', was not very expeditious in going to the rescue, but arriving at last at the scene of action, he was astonished to find that the boys had verily treed a coon in his cellar! He was soon dispatched, when the query arose, how came he here? A close inspection discovered no possible place for ingress, since the outer entrance was closed last fall, and it was at last decided that his coonship must have entered at that time and had lain dormant in some snug corner, till the late warm weather had thawed him out, and he had just started on a foraging expedition. [Raccoons do not hibernate, according to more modern knowledge].

There are also in that pond about 200 other trout, of larger size, caught in the vicinity. Some of them weigh a pound each. They have now in process of hatching about 25,000 eggs, obtained from trout in a pond just below theirs, owned by George Burnett. Mr. Burnett is a sort of http://www.rochester...ist/v6_1944/v6i3.pdf Seth Green [Seth Green is known as the Father of fish culture], having done much fishing in the Goshen, Ashfield, Plainfield and Cummington brooks, and has in his pond of 2 or 3 acres several thousand trout, varying in size from half a pound to one pound.

Picnic in Plainfield

Picnic in Plainfield - Plainfield was the scene of unusual bustle and commotion during a part of last week. Mon. was devoted to beautifying our cemetery, in anticipation of the decoration services, arranged to come off in connection with the picnic on Wed. On Tues. a large part of our citizens, both ladies and gentlemen, were pressed into service, preparing wreaths and bouquets, clearing the grove, erecting tables, speaker's stand, swings, etc., and fleet steeds were hurrying to and fro, soliciting evergreens, lumber, and other material. Wed. morning dawned bright and clear, dispelling the fears that had clouded some minds on the previous eve. About 10 a.m., a very large delegation from West Hawley put in an appearance, under escort of the Cummington Brass Band, and led by Chief Marshal Sheriff Campbell, and his asistant, S. Hayward Jr. In the village a halt of half an hour was ordered. At the proper time the procession, having received large accessions in number, was reformed in order as follows: 1st, band, second, speakers and invited guests, 3d, citizens and strangers generally, 4th, a bevy of young ladies (chosen to perform the decoration service) robed in white and bearing laurel wreaths and beautiful bouquets; 5th, a long line of carriages bringing up the rear. The column was formed in ranks of 4, and took up its line of march for the grove, taking the cemetery in the way, and upon approaching and entering which, moved to the measure of dirge like strains, sweet though sad...Many of the monuments and graves were adorned with wreaths and flowers...At first sight of the ground, one might almost fancy himself in a second paradise, but the crowd of bustling ladies and the pyramids of frosted cake, would soon dispel the illusion; for we read of only one Eve in Eden, and of sweet cake, "nary a word"...Ah! well, we will try to remember these good things next winter, when we are delving in 4 feet of snow...After the throng were seated, the president of the day, S.W. Clarke [ http://worldconnect....nedriscoll&id=I17973 Samuel Worcester Clarke ], called upon Rev. Edward Clark of Chesterfield, who briefly addressed the Throne of Grace. then followed music by the band, after which a recitation by Miss Eva Dyer. Next in order, the audience listened with evident interest to the following original poem, suggested, probably, by the anticipation of the decoration ceremony, and written by _____ _____. Well, now, I'm not sure that the author craves publicity, but I'll venture to say, by a gentleman who quaffs the cool and sparkling beverage of the same rock bottomed spring, that in days of old, ministered to the thirsty spirit of the Mountain Miller. The poem was read by Miss Mary Streeter, with grace and beauty of expression: "The City of the Dead"...The president then introduced Mr. Josiah Hayden, of Haydenville, to whose remarks the audience listened with rapt attention...Dr. Trow of Buckland was next called for, wo put in a plea of headache, but consented to take the stand, provided he might be "phunny"; upon which the president gave him the floor, carte blanche, and the way he cracked his dry jokes and related his laughable anecdotes, had a tendency to persuade some that really, his head did not ache "worth a cent". By and by he glided into the sentimental and didactic and became truly eloquent. His remarks as a whole were well received, but his "fling" at the city beau, was remarked by many as very untimely, inasmuch as certain young gentlemen were on the ground to whom the strangers present would be likely to refer his remarks as they, in some particulars, filled the bill of his personal description, but who are not at all the characters the doctor had in his mind; but on the contrary, are descendants of Plainfield's best stock, are men of means and high culture; men who labor daily and diligently, with their heads, if not with hands; in a word, men whom Plainfield "delights to honor". Elisha Bassett Esq. of Boston, was next called out and indulged for some time in interesting reminiscences, and closed with an anecdote, "bringing down the house". West Hawley was represented, in a few well chosen words, by Willis Vincent Esq. Rev. Solomon Clark then followed with a few remarks, which your reporter was uanble to hear. Rev. Edward Clark next addressed the audience in his usual earnest and impressive manner, discussing topics suggested by the previous exercises of the day...At this stage of the proceedings a call was made to relieve the 6 long tables of their burden of good things for the hungry. Plates had been laid for between 300 and 400, and we believe every seat was filled, and well filled; and for that matter so were the guests....After a half hour of table exercise, S.H. Lincoln took the stand and gave us one of his characteristic, earnest and telling addresses. Friend Lincoln is always charged and seldom misses the target...Thanks were given to Mr. Tirrell for the use of his grounds; after which the assembly dispersed in good humor (Hampshire Gazette).
