The top stories in the Evening Herald on this date 105 years ago:

Serious accident

Mrs. Thomas Aggus, of Oak Street, met with a serious accident yesterday afternoon. She was taking in clothes and pulling on the line when it gave way, and she fell over backward, striking her side against the corner of the house and breaking a rib. Owing to Mrs. Aggus' advance age the fracture is serious.

May survive injuries

Miss Etta Hoag, the 16 year old girl of Greenwich who was so badly injured by stepping off of a moving train several days ago, is now improving, and her physicians now have hopes of saving her life. The young lady can give no account of how she happened to step off the train.

Still expanding

The C.F. Jackson Co. have practically doubled the area of space occupied by them a year ago. The latest addition is the absorption of the bakery plant formerly operated by Mr. E.B. Harrison, whose reputation for baking lingers in the thoughts of thousands who remember how good "Father" Harrison's cookies were.

A visit to the bakery today found Richard Kreps in charge, and the appetizing odor from ginger bread, pound cakes, angel's food, devil's food, honey cakes, etc., greeted the senses upon entering the clean, well kept rooms. Every variety of baking will be produced hereafter, including the special orders for parties, banquets, etc.

To leave Norwalk

The many friends of J.S. White, cashier of the First National Bank, will learn with surprise and regret that he is to leave this city for a new field of labor. He has been chosen cashier of the Greenwich Banking Co., and has already taken up the labors of his new position.

Mr. White has lived in Norwalk for 15 years or more, having come here as auditor of the county, a position he filled in a most acceptable manner for six years. After two terms in the auditor's office he was elected cashier of the First National Bank, a position he ever since filled.

Honor badges

At the quenching of the council fire of Huron Tribe No. 200, Improved Order of Red Men, last night, Sachem Fred H. Arnold, on behalf of the great council of Ohio, presented to B.F. Gates, Wm. Schick and Henry C. Heyman each a handsome gold badge for the energetic work they have done in the interest of the order.

These badges are awarded to members of the order upon securing of five acceptable members into the tribe.
