A Look Back

200 Years Ago

∎ Reuben Wharfield, post rider, informs his customers that the first of April marks the completion of his last year, and he wishes them to settle by payment up to that time.

∎ Wm. Rose of Northampton wishes to purchase one thousand lamb skins, from one day old and upwards, for which he will pay from 6 to 12 cents in Morocco, hats, or shoes, at cash price.

100 Years Ago

∎ The Northampton Players begin with tomorrow night’s performance the next to the last week of their appearances at the Academy of Music for the present season. From here they go to Buffalo, where they are soon to open a summer season under Miss Bonstelle’s management.

∎ Iceman Grant says the people have got to economize in the use of ice. About all the ice that was cut on the reservoirs at Leeds is gone and tomorrow teams begin hauling the ice that was cut at Williamsburg.

People might as well understand now that they have got to use less ice, says Mr. Grant.

50 Years Ago

∎ Although a large number of reservations have been received for the new Look Park pavilion during the approaching summer season, the building will not be open until after the middle of this month.

The area surrounding the shelter is still being graded and some painting is being done on the building.

∎ The opening dinner meeting of the Women’s Golfing Association of the Northampton Country Club will be held Tuesday at the club. The new tee on Nov. 6 has proved advantageous to a number of players, and should help bring down the handicaps.
