  • Notes 
    • Crosshill - The village was thrown into sadness and mourning by the untimely death of William, son of Mr. Patrick Birmingham, on Thursday last, in his seventeenth year, after only a week's illness from fever. The young man was well known and popular with all. The funeral occurred on Saturday at Rush's cemetery. The sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family in their great sorrow. The crops in this section are looking excellent. Our football team declined playing in Linwood last Friday on account of the death of their young friend, Will Birmingham.
