A subscriber writes the Union as follows:

"I was pleased, in passing the Moses Brown place to see Ella Brown cleaning up each side of the street. She told me she had picked up more than 20 market baskets from the road between the school house and Gookin's place, mostly paste-board boxes, paper bags and empty bottles.

"I had a caller yesterday from Seabrook and told him of this. He said that was nothing to what he had picked up on the Lafayette Road."

A Citizen:

"All persons indebted to said estate are requested to make payment, and all having claims to present them for adjustment.
