+  LOSES AN ARM AT THE PLEASANT ST. CROSSING - Hiram BROWN, aged 62, flagman at the Pleasant street crossing, was struck by a Pennsylvania railroad engine, Wednesday evening, as he was signaling for a train coming from the opposite direction and had his right arm so badly crushed that it had to be amputated near the shoulder.  Dr. John H. JEWETT, the railroad's surgeon, took the injured man to the Memorial hospital and assisted by Dr. Harry M. SMITH, performed the operation and dressed the wounds, which included besides the injury to his arm severe lacerations of the head, a broken rib and a broken bone in one wrist.  The surgeons say that although BROWN laid some minutes upon the crossing, before his plight was discovered, the severed artery closed of itself, and wonderful to add, he escaped any shock following the accident and operation.  Indeed, he quite insisted upon being taken to his home in Tillotson street instead of tot he hospital, declaring he was "all right".  And, thanks to his good constitution and unshaken grit, it is true that he is getting on "all right".

Dr. Cornelius J. Andruss, for more than half a century a leading dentist of Canandaigua, died after a long illness at the Health home in this city, Thursday morning, aged 78 years. The funeral service was held in the Methodist Episcopal church, of which he had been a member and office bearer for many years, on Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The pastor of that church, Rev. Stephen S. Pratt, conducted the service, and members of the Canandaigua Dental Society acted as bearers. The interment was in Woodlawn.

Cornelius J. Andruss was born in Canadice, Ontario County, October 7, 1845. His preparatory education was acquired at the Genesee Wesleyan seminary. He then took a course in the State Normal School at Oswego from which he graduated in 1867. He taught in Canandaigua for a year, then went west owing to a failing health, taking a position as assistant civil engineer on the Illinois Central railroad. He was recalled after a year and a half by the death of his father. Following this he entered the dental office of Dr. A. G. Coleman, then located in the building in Gorham street, now occupied by Dr. F. G. Baldwin. He continued as assistant to Dr. Coleman for six years, when he took a course in the Philadelphia Dental college, from which he graduated in 1877. He then returned to Canandaigua and formed a partnership with Dr. Coleman. This continued until 1879 when Dr. Andruss engaged in practice by himself, opening offices in what is now the Soppe block, a short distance south of Chapin street. He continued in that location forty consecutive years, or until 1919 when he moved into his recent location in the Hubbell block. Dr. Andruss was a member of the Seventh District Dental society, a member of Canandaigua Dental society, in which he had served as an officer and was president emeritus at the time of his death, a member of Canandaigua lodge, F. A. and M., had served as an officer of the American Poultry association and as president of Ontario County Poultry association organized in 1909. He retired from dental practice on April 1, 1923.

Dr. Andruss, for many years had an active and influential part in civic affairs. He represented the First ward on the village board of trustees from 1900 to 1903, when he was elected as president of the village on the Republican ticket. He served as such for a term of two years. It was during Dr. Andruss's administration the problem of street improvement was taken up and carried through to a successful conclusion, the village trustees unselfishly associating themselves with an unofficial advisory committee of citizens and securing authority, at a special tax meeting, for a loan of $200,000 to cover the village share of the cost of permanent street paving. The board of trustees under the lead of Dr. Andruss also approved the amendment of the village charter so as to provide for a Board of Public Works to have full charge of subsequent street improvement. These different steps preliminary to the work which in the two subsequent years gave Canandaigua the distinction of having a larger percentage of paved streets than any other village in the state, were taken in the face of bitter opposition and without a suspicion of graft or other scandal by the board of which Dr. Andruss was chairman. For thirty years Dr. Andruss was president of the board of trustees of the Canandaigua Methodist church, relinquishing that position in 1920. He was a member of the Canandaigua Lodge, of Masons.

 Dr. Andruss was greatly interested in fruit growing and poultry raising, lines which he developed on his large place in Gibson street and also on the Reynolds farm on the west lake shore, of which he was owner for some years following 1883. For several years he was an exhibitor and prize winner of Black Minorca and Silver Laced Wyanotte fowls, at the National Poultry exhibition in Madison Square Garden, New York. On November 12, 1872, Dr. Andruss was married to Miss Maria Bailey of Spencerport. Besides his wife he leaves three daughters, Mrs. Will E. Martin, of this city, Mrs. William R. Marks of Palmyra, and Mrs. W. W. Macon, of Brooklyn, also eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
