This Week in Titusville, April 12, 1888

Local Laconics
--The Hotel Indian River closed formally last week.
--We failed to mention last week that Mr. Ender is about the happiest man in Titusville by the arrival of a baby boy at his residence.
--Mrs. A. W. Buie presented her husband with a bouncing baby last week.  Mr. Buie won't care much about running steamboats now; he will have something else to occupy his time.
--We must congratulate Mr. F. H. Boye, of Delespine, on the arrival of his baby boy, which happened last week. We believe Frank has grown an inch taller since we saw him last.
--Archdeacon Carpenter held morning and evening service last Sunday at Wager's Hall, concluding the morning service with Holy Communion.  The hall and and chancel had previously been artistically trimmed with evergreens and decorated with flowers by the ladies of the Episcopal Church in a manner which was highly pleasing to the eye and appropriate for the occasion.  The ladies who decorated the hall deserve a great deal of credit for their tasty handiwork, also Mr. Hundall for erecting the chancel.  On Sunday afternoon Archdeacon Carpenter addressed a confirmation class at the residence of Mr. Gaulden.
