Arthur M. Zile, manager of Borden's Ice Cream Co., of Westminster, and John G. Shipley, one of the route salesmen, attended a dinner at the Southern Hotel in Baltimore given by the Borden Co. of New York in honor of the men and women of the company who have been in the service of the company 25 or more years. In recognition of this service, the Borden Co. has organized these employees into a Borden's Quarter-Century Club which will meet regularly. Each member will receive a certificate of service from the president of the company and a gold pin set with a diamond. The pin bears a bust likeness of Gale Borden, the founder of the company, and is stamped with 25 in Roman numerals. -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 23, 1945.

Christopher Gunther, near this city, made a narrow escape from death by a singular accident on Sunday last. He went into the stall of a horse in his stable for some purpose and became entangled in the rope of the halter by which the animal was tied and which, being very long, wrapped around his body. The horse then threw his weight backward drawing the rope so tight that severe injury was inflicted and death would have ensued if Mr. Gunther's son had not discovered his father's dangerous plight and, getting a knife, cut the rope. Mr. Gunther has now well nigh recovered from the effect of the injury sustained. -- American Sentinel, Nov. 21, 1895.
