The Essex County Republican, May 1880
ESSEX - Possibly your Willsboro correspondent, who seems happy over the fact that a single merchant in W. has received more goods at the Willsboro' depot than all the Essex merchants together, may not know that we have a freight depot in Essex, where a large part of the goods sold here are brought by boat. The hit on the Horse Nail Factory did not hurt anybody, although we are a little sensitive on that subject. We have been disappointed because of failures encountered hitherto, but perhaps they will do us good. Any rate everything looks well now. The business has taken a new and apparently a favorable turn. We of Essex rejoice in the prosperity of Willsboro". Her merchants were largely trained in Essex; one of her pulp mills is run by an essex man; her forge is owned and run by a native and almost life-long resident of Essex; the water to carry her machinery comes from Essex; Essex has quite largely educated her sons and daughters. Finally as the preacher says, her roads all lead towards Essex. In view of these facts it is natural that we should rejoice over the prosperity of Willsboro.
BOSTON - The Panorama, that has been the cause of not a little excitement, as we find by looking over the Boston papers, is in full blast in the literary metropolis of New England. We copy the following notice as evidence the most positive that we have tidings of the Panorama.
Y. M. C. Union-Adirondacks and the Great Ausable Chasm. The announcement that an exhibition (with full description of Prof. Ellenwood's large paintings of scenery in the Adirondacks and Great Ausable Chasm would be given filled the Union Hall last evening with members and lady friends-the above very attractive and instructive programme having been provided by the committee as the regular Wednesday evening entertainment of the week. These series of paintings by Prof. Ellenwood are the work of more than twenty years faithful study of the wildest and most grand and romantic natural scenery east of the Rocky Mountains, and were executed by a skillful artist, who has made a life work of painting fine landscapes, having studied the art in Germany, Italy and Paris, and in this country under Church. Each painting is a valuable work of art, and would make a fine parlor scene. The descriptive lecture by Prof. Keese was especially interesting and instructive to all.
The above appears in the Boston Journal of May 20th. Similar notices appear in the traveler, Advertiser and Transcript. Professor Keese, we are happy to say, is competent to speak in behalf of our Great Northern Show, and we wish the parties having the Panorama in charge the most abundant success.

KEENE - In Supreme Court at Elizabethtown on Thursday, Justice Ellsworth C. Lawrence dismissed the complaint of Mrs. May Betters of Saranac Lake against Solomon, Hyman and Anna Drutz, Saranac Lake grocers, and R. C. Williams Company incorporated distributors and of her husband, Percy, as against the R. C. Williams. The jury returned a no cause for action verdict in the husband's action against the Drutz'.
A jury Friday afternoon returned verdicts totaling $12,200 in favor of Arthur Senecal and his wife Daisy, of Keene Valley, in their automobile negligence actions against Samuel Thorne and his daughter, Emeline, of New York, winter sports visitors to the Keene Valley section.Mrs. Senecal received $11,000 of the amount and her husband was awarded the remainder. The actions arose from an automobile accident near the Senecal home January 2.
Mr. and Mrs. Senecal were leaving the driveway of their home when their car, driven by Mr. Senecal, figured in a collision with a car driven by Emeline Thorne and owned by her father. Mr. and Mrs. Senecal were severely injured. Mr. and Mrs. Senecal were represented by the law firm of R. Prime and Soden of Lake Placid, while the defense testimony was presented by Clifford W. McCormick of Saranac Lake.
SCHROON LAKE - A carrier pigeon, released from the tower of the Empire State Building by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Dempsey, spread its wings at 11:20 A. M. on Tuesday and arrived at 4 P. M. at Scaroon Manor, bringing the first honeymoon reservation this season to the summer resort. The pigeon was released by the former heavy-weight champion of the world in the presence of a group of other celebrities and about twenty newspapermen. Joseph Frieber, genial proprietor of Scaroon Manor, was on hand to welcome the first honeymoon couple, Mr. and Mrs. James Patruccio of Passaic, N. J. who arrived Wednesday.
The Ticonderoga Sentinel, May 1949
TICONDEROGA - The Larrabees Point Ferry, which operates on Lake Champlain between the terminus of the Fort Ticonderoga road and the opposite Vermont shore, ran away Thursday evening with a honeymoon couple aboard.
The all-steel pontoon floated ferry snapped its cable in a powerful north wind a few minutes after leaving the Vermont landing on the last trip of the day with Mr. and Mrs. Herman of Baltimore aboard in their car. The Navy LC boat which supplies the power to drive the ferry on its cable was unable to handle the large steel barge. Driven down the lake by the wind, the ferry beached itself at a point about a half-mile south of the New York Landing.
Realizing that nothing could be done until the wind subsided the operator unhitched the LC from the ferry and took the Hermans back to Ticonderoga.
