* The Agricultural Fair or Community Exhibit held at the Union Bridge High School under the auspices of the Agricultural and Domestic Science departments of the school was well attended and proved quite a success. This is the first exhibit of this nature ever held in Union Bridge. The school, as well as the community, feels gratified over their efforts. The judges declared that the fair compared favorably with any that they judged this season. The object of the exhibit is to encourage the pupils and people of the community to raise better products and take more care in their canning and preserving. Interesting features of the fair were the booth by the Union Bridge Grange and the display of the work by the grammar grades. Union Bridge Pilot, Nov. 23, 1917.

* Melrose -- Before the election, Messrs. Andrew Eisenhuth and George P. Wentz, the former a Democrat and the latter a Republican, made an agreement that the one of them whose candidate should be defeated would wheel the other through Melrose on a wheelbarrow. On Saturday, the wager was carried out, but it almost tired out the Republican to manipulate the wheelbarrow with a jubilant, harrahing Democrat on it. The novel vehicle was brought back with a Republican boy on it and two enthusiastic, cheering Democratic boys furnishing the motive power. American Sentinel, Nov. 19, 1892.
