A singular accident befell Mr. Sherman Kingsbury last Tuesday evening. While partaking of his regular supper, of which an oyster stew formed a part, a small piece of oyster shell lodged in his throat and resisted all efforts made to remove it. Physicians were called, but they could afford no relief. Mr. Kingsbury was in considerable distress, the obstruction in his throat causing retching and vomiting. The physicians determined that the obstruction must remain until the irritation causes suppuration and thus aids removal. It is a very disagreeable trouble, but we hope nothing serious will come from it. The piece of shell became dislodged Thursday afternoon and passed down Mr. Kingsbury's throat, and he now feels much relieved.

Academy, N. Y. -
After reading the account of the sad death of Eli Asbinwall, who used to live on the lake shore near Mr. Foster's, and thinking what a warning it would be to those who were following in the same footsteps, we were shocked to hear that Albert Goff and John O'Niel had been picked up in a frozen, unconscious condition, on Saturday night, near Monteith's Point. They had been at Canandaigua, and becoming intoxicated, started for home with a bottle of whiskey. Some men coming home later saw first the empty bottle, then a man's hat, then some blankets, and then O'Niel was found lying bareheaded, and with one bare hand in the snow, as dead as a clod to all appearance. They picked him up and took him into the house of Mr. Bush, and worked over him about half the night before he showed any signs of life. Lafayette Johnson found Goff (who has a wife and child), in the same condition and took him into Thomas Power's, where he was kindly cared for. O'Niel's hand was badly frozen, which will probably be the only serious injury to either of them. They live at the old cider mill near George Crane's. Go on young men! It is only a question of time with you. Albert, you will fill a drunkard's grave! O'Niel, you have just commenced! Why should the ladies of those houses have spent their time and wasted their sympathies on such loathsome creatures, to bring them back to repeat the act. It is wilful and voluntary on their part. When men show themselves in capable of taking care of themselves or their families, let the law give them a trustee, and let them be hired out and their earnings used for the support and comfort of themselves and families. Deprive them of their liberty. Make them work in public places and be known as the drunkards' gang. The rich, fine heavily, and have a large cage or showcase in the postoffice building in each town, where they shall be confined for the first offence. If that does not reform them, give them solitary confinement on bread and water, and double the dose for each repetition. It two years there would not be a drunkard in the land. It would place the responsibility where it belongs. Prohibition stimulates them to further deviltry. They known that they worry temperance people, and it makes heroes of them. The are objects of special solicitude to the good ladies, and they rather like it. Make them responsible for their acts as God does.

West Bloomfield, N. Y. -
On last Friday evening while Mr. George Webb, together with two or three men were crossing the bridge over the Honeoye creek, at Factory Hollow, in a sleigh, and when about the center, the bridge went down and with it men, horses and sleigh, a distance of about ten feet into the water below. Three of the men escaped with littler or no injury save a cold bath. Mr. Webb was thrown under the sleigh, blankets and horses, and would have been drowned but for the presence of mind of Benny Shaddock, who was one of the party, being on one of the horses and seeing Mr. Webb under the planks and sleigh got hold of him and held his head out of water until his father, Albert Shaddock, came from his house some distance from the bridge and jumped into the water and grasping a plank on which lay one of the horses and under which lay Mr. Webb, and dragged Webb our more dead than alive. He was taken to his home a short distance from the bridge badly bruised but no bones were broken, but it will be some time before he will be able to be around. When Mr. Shaddock reached the bridge several men were standing on the bank but none of them had courage enough to help save Mr. Webb.

Chapinville, N. Y. - Mr. Parker had a narrow escape from being seriously injured this morning. As he was driving to the depot the horses became uneasy and he got out of the cutter and took one by the bridle, but in some way they threw him over the wall at the east end of the iron bridge, and then they got loose from the cutter and ran up to Albert Tripp's house and broke through the fence. Mr. Parker was taken to the depot and the doctor sent for, who said his injuries were not serious.

Academy, N. Y. - The people of Covel Settlement are considerable exercised over a very disgraceful row that occurred on Crimer Burd's place a few days since. It seems Burd has two daughters, and several young men of the neighborhood, with no very savory reputations, are in the habit of calling at the house to see the girls. On the day in question there were present besides Crimer Burd (who, by the way, is constable of the town), Jack Rine, Will Jenks, Frank Marl, Hod Allen and Geo. Bird and the party, after disposing of several jugs of wine and whiskey, became drunk enough to be quarrelsome, and after getting tired of shamefully beating their horses, Allen and Marl got to thumping each other, and the former getting the better of the his antagonist, Rine came to the rescue and helped Marl get Allen down, and commenced choking and kicking him, in which cowardly act they were assisted by Crimer Burd. Finally Allen got loose, and made it so lively for the three that they were glad to retreat to the house and lock him out. Marl came out of the "scrimmage" minus an ear, while Allen's clothes were about stripped from his body. The neighbors were attracted by the row in considerable numbers, and they say that the transaction was a shameful affair and an outrage on the community, and there is talk of taking legal steps to bring the participants to justice -- especially the man Burd, who, though an officer, seems to have been the worst one of the gang.

From Ontario County Journal 31 October 1884

The Buffalo Courier of last Saturday gives the particulars of an escapade, in which some Ontario County people seem to be interested, as follows: By the evening train night before last, Mrs. Cobb, a good-looking lady apparently about forty-five years old, arrived in Buffalo. Soon after she went to police headquarters, and to the superintendent communicated the fact that she was in search of her recreant husband, to whom she had been married ten years. Cobb was a thrifty grocer, doing business at Clifton Springs, where he lived with his wife in comfortable circumstances. Three months ago he left home, and his wife knew not where he had pitched his tent. Recently she heard he was in Buffalo, which accounts for her visit. The case was turned over to a detective with instructions to hunt up the missing spouse. She was able to give the name of Mrs. Alice Cady, who was understood to be an acquaintance of the woman to whom the Clifton grocer had united himself. Mrs. Cady was found by the detective at the house of E. Skidmore, of 98 Niagara street. Mrs. Cady said the present Mrs. Cobb was a woman by the name of O'Neill, who lived with him at the house of Mrs. Cooper on Morgan street. The irate wife and detective went to the house on Morgan street and there arrested Cobb. Mrs. O'Neill turned out to be a rather sorry looking female, and was passing Cobb off as her third husband. It appeared that Cobb had enough money to keep things going, and the two were having a very giddy time of it. Mrs. Cobb was given the custody of her husband and took him back home by the evening train. Mrs. O'Neill was turned loose upon an uncharitable world, and will undoubtedly experience a hard winter.

West Bloomfield, N. Y. -  Henry C. Brown
met with a very serious accident last week. He was engaged in shaking apples from a tall tree, and supposed the limb he was standing upon was solid and fully equal to bearing his weight. But it proved to be the reverse, it suddenly broke short off and precipitated him a distance of twenty-five feet on to a road bed beneath. There were no intervening limbs to break the fall, and his concussion with Mother Earth was pretty severe, to put it mildly, and must have disturbed the latter in her orbit somewhat. But Brown got the worst of it, and was unconscious when picked up and carried to the house. Very fortunately, however, no bones were broken, which is wonderful considering the distance he fell. He had been confined to the house since then and is now barely able to get around with the aid of crutches.

Mr. David Whitney,
of this village, had a narrow escape from drowning in the lake last Friday afternoon. The old gentleman was traveling with a horse and buggy selling balsam, and coming to the steamboat dock at Oak Ridge, he attempted to pass it by keeping along the edge of the lake, but as soon as the horse's feet struck the water, he became unmanageable and backed the carriage out into deep water, where both sank, leaving Mr. Whitney struggling in the lake. Being unable to swim, he was in a very dangerous position, but fortunately his cries for assistance brought Myron Fuller to the rescue, and he finally succeeded in getting the drowning man to the shore. The horse and carriage sank in some sixty feet of water, and efforts to find them failed up to the latest report.
