The top stories in The Daily Reflector on this date in 1901:


The council orders their construction in various parts of the city

The city council met in regular session Tuesday evening, October 1st, with all members present but Doane and Niles, Vice President Dillingham in the chair.

Aside form the usual routine work an ordinance was passed to build numerous sidewalks and a resolution was also passed for new walks in front of Price & Stewart’s property on Rose Avenue, and in front of Mrs. Rose Welch’s property on State Street.

The Jefferson Street sewer was ordered connected with the Pleasant Street sewer; the city commissioner was directed to fix the old tool house so the cannon can be stored there; and the L.S.&M.S. railroad was ordered to repair all of its street crossings.

The residents of South Garden Street petitioned to have the arc light removed from that street and numerous incandescent lights distributed along the street.


A house party

Mrs. W.D. McVitty is entertaining a number of Norwalk ladies this week with a house party at the McVitty cottage on the lake shore, near East Cleveland. Among those who are included in the party are Mrs. F.L. Stein, Mrs. A.L. Osborn, Mrs. Milo Peak and Mrs. J.H. Gross, who left for Cleveland this morning. Mrs. S.E. Simmons will also be of the party.


Fifth birthday

Master Walter Wagner, son of A.T. Wagner of Oak Street, entertained in a handsome manner Tuesday, the kindergarten class of which he is a member, with a delightful luncheon in the pleasant Street school building in honor of his fifth birthday anniversary. The little ones enjoyed the good things and hope others will follow Master Walter’s excellent example.


A horse in the well

A valuable horse owned by Wm. Stein, who lives west of Hunt’s Corners, met with a peculiar accident last Saturday morning. As the animal was going through the barn yard it fell into a well 18 feet deep. A rope and tackle was immediately rigged up and the horse pulled out of the well, and strange to say it sustained no serous injuries.

A masquerade surprise party was given as a farewell to Dr. and Mrs. D. W. Stoup of Monroeville, at the home of Mrs. Jordan in that place, last Monday. The doctor and his wife left Tuesday for their future home in Lansing, Mich.
