■Orange Wright will pay cash for well fatted pork, if delivered at his cellar, Nov. 16 Merchant’s Row, within fifteen days. He informs his friends that he shall keep constantly for sale at his cellar, fresh and pickled beef and pork by the quantity or piece, small meats, poultry, sausages, tallow, candles, etc.

■Timothy Graves, tailor, informs the inhabitants of Northampton and the adjacent towns, that he has taken a part of the shop lately occupied by Messrs. Fowle & Bryant, where he intends to please all those who will favor him with their custom.

100 Years Ago

■The skating rink on Paradise Pond is now excellent, and there was a large crowd on the rink this afternoon. The old Catholic cemetery ground near the freight yards on King Street was flooded today and about an acre of land will be available for skating, if cold weather continues.

■Strange pamphlets of rank German propaganda are being received by Northampton philatelists in packages of stamps from some of the German occupied territories. The denunciations purport to come from an American woman, but she refrains from giving her name.

50 Years Ago

■Pfc. Michael Samolewicz, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Samolewicz of 19 Trumbull Road, is home on 14 days furlough. He had basic training at Fort Dix, N.J., and advanced Infantry training at Fort Ord, Monterey, Calif. He will leave for a year of duty in Vietnam.

■Dave Nadeau reached the 1,000-point mark in his high school career Friday night, but it was to no avail as St. Michael’s was upset by Mahar, 68-62, dropping the Angels out of a tie for second place in the Hampshire League. For St. Mike’s the only consolation was that Nadeau scored 33 points and now has 1,024 for his high school career.
