Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette Register 1915 - Yesterday's News
|These clippings from ancient
and fragile newspapers stored above the Troy Gazette-Register office are
being typed by Tri-County volunteers for presentation on site. Primarily
we are preserving the neighborhood news columns and the obituary, marriage
and birth information included in them. I intend also to include articles
that show the influences on the lives and attitudes of our local populations
at the time, and I will also illustrate the individual pages with ads from
the era. Nothing is more revealing of lifestyle than the goods and services
The TGR covers the area of all townships surrounding Troy and many neighborhoods have a local column submitted, but not necessarily every week or even every year.
Our thanks goes to the staff of the Troy Gazette-Register for giving us access to this valuable old news so that we can share it with you. There is no better way to understand the culture and customs of our old communities than by sifting through these clippings. Even the names of some of these old communities have ceased to exist in today's world, but we have them captured and preserved here. If you do not have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through clippings, these will be included in the Search Engine which you can reach from the "Front Door" of the Tri-County Genealogy & History sites by Joyce M. Tice.

Causing Much Criticism.
Philadelphia papers are devoting columns of space to an espousal of the cause of Dr. Scott Nearing, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nearing of Troy, whom it is alleged has been unfairly dealt with y the Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania. For seven years Dr. Nearing had a place in the faculty. Last year after considerable talk, pro and con, he was advanced to an assistant professorship but without the advanced salary to which he was entitled. This year, without notice, after the students had gone home for vacation and against the wishes of the faculty he was dropped by the Trustees.
Dr. Nearing is an advanced thinker along sociological lines, a national authority on the minimum wage, child labor and so forth. His utterances and writings for the masses against the classes in such matters have attracted wide attention. The friends of Dr. Nearing see in his retirement more than unfairness. They say it is an unwarranted and unjustifiable encroachment on the right of free speech and will work great harm to the university.

Nina Jennings, 12 years old, only child and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Jennings, was perhaps fatally injured about 3 o’clock Wednesday afternoon. She had gone to the barn on the John Ruggles farm on the East Troy road on an errand for her father and was lying on the hay directly under where he was at work when the hay carrier pulley and frame dropped. It struck her forehead, fracturing the skull or rather cutting a gash across it through the bone. Happily the brain though exposed, was not injured. Dr. Barker was called and arrived within a half-hour. Miss Bowen is in attendance on the little sufferer as nurse. The condition of the patient is critical but not without hope.

Our Candidate for District Attorney. David J. Fanning has a host
of friends in Western Bradford who are heartily interested in his success,
and from present indications he is a winner. He was born and reared
on a farm in Springfield township, a son of Melvin D. Fanning, who was
a veteran of the Civil War and a farmer. By grit and determination,
under circumstances which would have discouraged one less resolute, he
acquired his Normal School and College education, and later fitted himself
for the practice of his profession with Hon. A. C. Fanning.
He is a man of sterling integrity, highly respected in the community in which he resides and fearless in the discharge of every known duty. He is an untiring worker, has a broad and comprehensive knowledge of the law, and is regarded as a safe counselor and an able advocate. Bradford county will honor itself by adding to her list of able District Attorneys the name of David J. Fanning, and at the same time do justice to one of the most deserving and respected members of the bar who would discharge the duties of the office with ability and fairness to all.

“Father of Baseball” Descendant from Bradford County Stock. No wonder a large part of Bradford county are interested in base ball; they have a right to be, for it was Bradford county stock which gave to the world “the Father of the National Game,” A. G. Spalding who recently passed out of the earthly life at Point Lomo, California. A great pitcher in his day. A. G. Spalding did more probably than any other man to popularize the game. He was a son of James Lawrence Spalding and a grandson of Colonel Harry Spalding, a native of Sheshequin who at 28 moved to Towanda and in 1812 built the Mix homestead on York avenue, the oldest house in the boro.
