Fire Company No. 1

The Board of Trustees having agreed to purchase an Engine for the Village, a new Company was formed on Saturday last. The members comprise some of our most respectable citizens, who will do good service at all times. The Officers chosen are as follows:

J. Crowley, Foreman
W. H. Lyle, 1 st Asst.
John K 2d “
S. L. Hart, Clerk
Chas. Scheffer, Treasurer
S.S. Roby, Steward

The Company recommended Curtis Reed, Esq. To the Board for the office of Chief Engineer, and we but express the sentiments of our whole population when we say that a better man for the job could not be found.
