Erving

Erving - We learn from good authority that men are here and there purchasing revolvers for their wives to frighten tramps with. One of our citizens has provided his house with one. Strange that women always have to "faint away" after the enemy has been conquered.

A righteous rebuke

The following paragraph in the Turners Falls Reporter, in its just defense of one of our honored and respected citizens, will be readily endorsed by every respectable man in the community:

"If the Greenfield times man did get pretty badly stuck when he purchased that paper, it doesn't show a manly spirit to abuse men of whom he knows nothing, simply to vent his rage. He came to Greenfield a perfect stranger, and when the first opportunity offered, he attacked the Gazette for being so successful a rival. Then he blundered into abusing people, and making misstatements generally, till one half of one week's paper was taken up with apologies for the inaccuracies of the preceding week.

And one of his last indiscretions is the most unpardonable. He took delight in copying an article from an exchange, which contained a low slur on the character of Hon. W.B. Washburn, speaking of him as the pail-maker of Erving. Mr. Washburn is the pail-maker of Erving, but he is also a gentleman, and was an honest and faithful servant of the people in all offices, high and low, to which he was elected, and retired from the United States Senate with a name unspotted.

Now that Mr. Washburn has retired from public life, the Times nor any other paper has a right to speak otherwise of him than as a gentleman, and if that sheet desires to prolong its painful existence, it will take our advice and not say anything against a man till it knows whereof it affirms. Let it take a lesson from its past management. The course it now pursues has made bankrupts of half a dozen men".

The beauties of nature have been resurrected all about us. Too bad that their life must be of short duration. When we hear of tomato plants living, blossoming and bearing fruit for 3 years in succession, having no frosts to prevent it, we wonder not that California is overflowing with emigrants.
