More This Week in Titusville, March 1, 1888

Local Laconics

--Mr. E.L. Brady has moved to his new residence on Main street. 
--Mr. Gardner has the frame up for his new residence.  
--Titusville’s public school has an enrollment of over 129 pupils. 
--Mr. G. F. Ensey has sold his fast yacht to a party living near the Haulover.
--Anyone visit London will find the STAR, every week, at Gillig’s reading room, Charing Cross, Strand. 
--Mr. P. Neilson has purchased the river lot and blacksmith shop of Ed Titus near the railroad, and is talking of erecting a boatways. 
--A Bean-Bag party had an enjoyable time at the residence of Dr. Ordorff, on Monday evening. 
--The through train from Jacksonville is late nearly every day.  What could be the cause of it? 
--Two car loads of passengers arrived on last Friday afternoon.  The travel is at its height just about now. 
--The weather during the first part of the week was decidedly cool to say the least of it, and it made some of our gardeners feel fearful about their crops, but the frost did not come.
--Attention is directed to the notice of Messrs. Ensey & Bigelow to persons who are endebted to them, which will be found in another column.  
--Mr. J.M. Turney and Mr. C. L. Bostwick of Newport, Conn., passed through Titusville on Thursday last, on their way to St. Sebastian River, where Mr. Turney has some landed interests.  They purpose spending some weeks in that section hunting and fishing. 

LaGrange Leaves

--Mr. W. N. Hendry, our enterprising merchant, has received his appointment as postmaster, Mr. E. L. Brady having resigned the office. 
--Mr. James Mitchell is spending a few weeks with Mr. Thomas Johnson, and is making preparations to have a road cut from his hammock property to Mims station. 
--Our visit to the Sub-Tropical was very gratifying.  The exhibits are generally good.  The Brevard department, in charge of Mr. David Wingood, gave us much pleasure in its display of fruits, and also their artistic arrangement; but we regret that the ladies of Brevard have contributed so little.  
--An incident which I desire to mention was the meeting, at May Town, of the train which bore Mr. Cleveland and his friends.  We had been side-tracked to allow the train to pass. As it came opposite our position it stopped, and there, in the pine woods, under the blue skies of Florida, the chief ruler, of sixty millions of people came out of his coach and saluted and shook hands with his fellow citizens.  Ladies and gentlemen, of all political parties, greeted him and his charming wife.  This scene of welcome and security in these wild woods was a grand, a sublime exhibition of the wisdom of our republican institutions.
   Married last evening, 29th ult, at the residence of the bride’s mother, in Titusville, by Rev. John Foy, Mr. Carlos C. Curtiss, of Chicago, and Miss Johanna C. Combs.      
   We regret we did not have the space to give a full description of the wedding this week.  After the ceremony was performed the guests sat down to a splendid collation;  and a dance was given at Wager’s Hall afterward.  The bride was the picture of loveliness, attired in a white satin trimmed with Spanish lace and orange flowers, while the groom looked his best in conventional black.  The many friends of Mr. & Mrs. Curtiss wish them a long life of happiness, good luck and prosperity.

   To my patrons and citizens of Titusville, I desire to say that I will be absent from the city from March 5th to March 13th inclusive.  My appointment books will be found at the Grand View Hotel, where persons can secure time by registering for dates- beginning the morning of Wednesday, March 14th.  As my time is limited, it will be well for those who desire my professional services to take advantage of making dates    F. H. HOUGHTON, Dentist.
