The number of people in this vicinity afflicted with rheumatism at present is greater than at any other time within a period of ten years. The air seems to be full of it and almost every third person one meets limps or carries a cane.
A band of about fifty genuine Berks county gypsies pased through town on Monday on their way to Brush Valley, where they intend to camp a week or ten days before returning to their winter quarters. Their outfit consisted of fourteen wagons, thirty horses, three tents and a log of cooking utensils.
