+ Victor Man Sorely Afflicted - While Ambrose T. LANE was building a wire fence on his farm west of this village, last Friday afternoon, a piece of wire, which he was cutting, snapped into his face badly lacerating the right eye. Mr. LANE caught a Rochester and Eastern car for Rochester, almost immediately, and went to a hospital for treatment. so badly was the eye injured that it was found necessary to remove it that evening. As Mr. LANE is suffering from what is thought to be a cataract on the left eye, the loss of the other is a doubly sore affliction. The injured man is making a good recovery from the operation and expects to return to his home this week.

+ Sneak Thieves Raid Victor - Clothes Lines Robbed - House Entered
Victor, April 17. - On Monday night of last week, sneak thieves were active about the village and several rear porches were entered, together with cellars and cellar entrance ways. Maple avenue and Covilel and East streets were the places visited. Garments were taken from the clothes lien at the residence of Rev. J. J. DONNELLY and the miscreants left traces of their calls at the homes of John BRADY, A. W. SMITH, Mrs. Julia ROSE, Wells PARMELEE and at the residences of Mrs. Delia REEVES and Mrs. Elizabeth GOULDRICK, articles were taken. The tool house at the Locke factory was also entered on this same night, but nothing evidently taken. Two strangers, who were seen about the streets here on the day before the houses were visited, were suspected of the work and officer John T. CONCANON and H. Elmer CORNFORD started out on their trail and they were followed to Pittsford and later to Twelve Corners, where the trail was lost. No further clue has been obtained. On the following night, Tuesday, the Lehigh Valley station at Tuttle's the first station east of here, was entered by taking a latch off a window in the waiting room. About five dollars in change was taken and a pair of new shoes belonging to the agent at the depot, L. B. LAWRENCE. No clue to the thieves has been found.

Young WILSON is about 21 years old and has not lived with his father for the past few year and only came back here several days ago. He was married 3 years ago to a girl then employed at the home of E. R. REED in this town, who was an orphan from New York. They lived in Rochester and it appears that in February last, some sort of a quarrel took place at their home in that city and the wife was shot in the head by her husband. This story never reached the Rochester papers until last week, when the wife wanted the husband arrested. The charge against him is assault with intent to kill, it is understood, and the outcome of the affair cannot as yet be determined and it will be watched with interest by the friends of the young man in this village.
