An Enraged Editor. Brother Knight of the Bridgton Reporter is down on
women folks. He gave up his seat in the cars to two of them the other day and
and because they took it as a matter of course he was highly offended, and charges
them with indulging in "a foolish chuckle,' says the "didn't look respectful or polite,"
accuses them of manifesting a "want of decency," insinuates that are "weak," that "their
jewelry was cheap," "their complexion bad," and that they will "never be dangerously
exposed to the delicate trials of love." Why, Knight, what a desperate old bachelor you
are getting to be.

while attempting to haul it in. Captain Barry was about 63 years old.
The dwelling house of Francis Warren, Esq., of Lyman, was destroyed by fire on
Sunday night last week, and his youngest daughter, about 15 years old, perished in
the flames. The rest of the family barely escaped with their lives and the oldest daughter
who has been sick for some weeks, is not expected to recover. The fire was set by some
fiendish wretch, for whom hanging would be too mild a punishment.
Captain Robert Johnson of Gorham, a respected citizen but of unsound mind in

His body was not discovered until two o'clock Sunday afternoon. This is said to be the
