Battery explodes injuring manager
150 Years Ago
In passing through Irvington we could not see that much damage had been to the grain in that section by the grasshoppers. Wheat generally looks very well as did some fields of corn. Dr. Armstrong, has the finest field of corn that can be seen anywhere. The stand is good and even and the ground is as clean of weeds as any floor. They say the Doctor always has a good corn crop.
