+  Thursday Night's Fire - Shortly after 10 o'clock Thursday night, fire was discovered in the small wooden block owned by William CARRINGTON, on Bristol street.   The wind was blowing a terrific gale from the south and for a few minutes it looked as if a large portion of the business portion of the village would be wiped out. The firemen quickly responded to the alarm, and with the practically unlimited supply of water at their command, they soon had the flames under control.  So effectively was their work preformed that the damage to the building is estimated at the surprisingly low figure of $200, which is fully covered by insurance.  The fire started in an upstairs room occupied by Mary KELLY, a mute.  Some time before the fire was discovered, the woman went to bed very drunk, and in some manner set fire to the bedding.  She was nearly suffocated when carried from the room.

DEATH OF A. S. NEWMAN

Last Sunday forenoon, at 10:oo o'clock, occurred the death of Algernon S. NEWMAN.  For years, Mr. NEWMAN had been suffering form a stomach difficulty which had more recently been complicated with a kidney problem.  His illness had been made more serious by his mental distress on account of the death of his wife, which occurred about the middle of January.  Death at the last, was very sudden.  An hour before he had been talking with his son, Willis, regarding the drug business.  Three minutes before his death he had been conversing with members of the family. Mr. NEWMAN was born May 1, 1837, in East Bloomfield, near the line dividing that town from Farmington.  His education was gained at the East Bloomfield Academy, then among the best schools of the county.  At an early age he came to Canandaigua, and worked for a time in a clothing store in what is now the Hale block.  Later, he went to Rochester, where he worked for an uncle in a drug store and learned the business of pharmacy.  At the age of 22, he came to Canandaigua and purchased a drug stock and established himself in that business in the store which he has ever since occupied.

In 1860, he married Augusta Ruby DENTON.  To them were born five children, Willis D., Louise M., Horace B., Frank S. and Gratia A., all of whom survive.  Mr. NEWMAN was a member of the First Congregational Church of which for many years, he was a trustee.  His loss will be much felt by that church.  Although usually avoiding any position of a public nature, he was for several years a trustee of the village.  He also served as treasurer of the Driving Park Association, during his life and for several years as treasurer of the Ontario Agricultural Society.  Mr. NEWMAN's name, during all the years of his adult life, had been prominently identified with the industry of the place.  He has continually advanced the line of his business until it has attained a reputation in places remove from Canandaigua.  As an honorable, high-minded citizen, and as a progressive, original business man, Mr. NEWMAN's name will be long retained in respectful memory in Canandaigua.

ONTARIO -  Michael Kinsella Goes "Over The Hill To The Poorhouse"
Michael Kinsella, who for nearly half a century has been a faithful guardian of the Central Hudson's interests at the main street crossing at Canandaigua, preventing many fatal catastrophes, has been discharged from the company's employ, apparently because he has grown decrepit in the company's services, and he has been compelled to go to the county almshouse to pass the remainder of his days.
Kinsella, who is known by every man, woman and child in the town began work for the Central company at an early age. While employed as switchman in the year 1862 he fell beneath a moving car and received an injury that resulted in the loss of a leg. He was then given position of flagman at the most dangerous crossing in the village, and during his term of service, over 30 years, but one fatality, that of James Mulligan about five years ago, for which he was in no way to blame, has occurred.
During the long years he has received but the mere pittance of $4 per day, with which he was barely able to support himself and only sister. Yesterday the local railroad authority informed him that they had received instructions from headquarters to discharge him.
Determined not to be a burden to his relatives who are unable to support him, he at once "went over the hills to the poorhouse" where he was seen by the correspondent, to whom he told his woeful story.
