Amboy Notes:

Mrs. E. S. Perkins of Denver, Colorado, and also Mrs. E. J. Heron, of Erie, Pa., were guests in the family of their brother, Mr. Edwin Swan, a portion of last week.

Mr. Samuel Caughey, of Erie, came Friday, for a visit with his brother, Mr. C. C. Caughey.

Mr. Samuel Gailbraith Sr., returned Thursday last week from Lorain Co., much improved in health.

Mrs. Fred. Callow is entertaining her mother, Mrs. Woodruff, of Madison.

Mr. C. D. Palmer and wife left for Buffalo on Monday a week ago to attend the International Fair.  They also expect to visit relatives in that vicinity ere their return home.

Mr. Warren Randall and brother recently returned from a two week's visit to Burbank, Wayne Co., Ohio.

Mr. Lyman Rodgers and wife enjoyed a very pleasant trip to Chautauqua a few weeks since.

The infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ganley has been seriously ill, but is much improved at present.

Mr. Frank Strait ahs been confined to her bed for the last few days by severe illness.

Mr. D. R. Eastman, who has been absent from home for some weeks past, returned a few days since very poor heath, being confined to his bed a part of the time. (See cemetery)

The entertainment, given at the Church on Saturday evening y Mrs. Bugbee's Sabbath School Cass, passed off pleasantly.

  Alva Fuller is on the sick list.

The residence of Chas. Wheeler burned to the ground last week Thursday night.  A defective stove pipe the cause.  It is the second house burned on that site; once owned and built by Prof. A. H. Viets.

Sept. 13th a twelve pound daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Chapman.  "Set your ears back."

Saturday afternoon at the canning factory  was lively times.  Sixteen girls tried for the prizes of swiftest peeling, the time was 5 1/2 hours.  Eight girls were selected and each chose a partner, as two always peel at a pail.  There was a tie between the first prize, which was one dollar apiece Clara Shaw and Eva Thompson peeled 96 pails and Bertha Salsbury and Lisle Welton the same.  The least any couple peeled was 74 pails.  Such hustlers you never saw.  It was a picnic for the tables next to the prize tables for they couldn't get enough tomatoes to keep them busy, and so had plenty of time to watch the race.  The presperation just poured off the faces of the men that waited on the racers, the way they worked meant business.
I think people generally do not realize how much business is done at the canning factory.  215 persons are at work there now.  Last Saturday thirty-four thousand cans of tomatoes were put up that day, beside thousands of cans of corn.
