McLeod situated near Harvey Corner. Capt. Geo. Coonan and wife, Mrs. Julia Bishop and son Judson, Miss Bertha Coonan, and Miss L. F. Steeves, all of Harvey are visiting Elgin. The whiskey man from Moncton did a rushing business on the 12th at Hillsboro. His whiskey must have been well watered, it did not make much noise. So says the Maple Leaf. John P. Edgett while at work on the A. M. Co. tracks on Saturday, had the misfortune to cut off one of his thumbs. Dr. J. T. Lewis rendered the necessary surgical assistance. The deals of J. C.
