Feremanagh Herald 1912.

November 2nd 1912. JOTTINGS. Fermanagh Herald. In Enniskillen market on Tuesday there were 145 butts of butter, which sold at from 9¼d to 11¼d per lb. There were 374 dead pigs which sold at from 51s to 54s 6d per cwt.

A woman was asked at Enniskillen Quarter Sessions what age was her son, and she replied —”He was three and twenty last bonfire night.”

Your son was a minor,” said Mr. Cooper to a witness at Enniskillen Quarter Sessions. “He was working with a spade,” replied witness, amidst loud laughter.

A resolution was passed at a meeting of the Lisnaskea Teachers Association on Saturday promising their best support to the Central Executive Committee in any efforts they may take for the reinstatement of Mr. Mansfield.

FOOTBALL. In a Gaelic football match played at Teemore, Fermanagh defeated Cavan by one point to nil. The Fermanagh team was selected from Teemore and Newtownbutler.

ENNISKILLEN GUARDIANS. At the meeting of the Enniskillen Board of Guardians on Tuesday, the Master imported that a man named Hugh Mc Caffrey broke a number of windows in the institution on Wednesday. The doctor ordered the man to take baths and he refused. He wanted to lie up in bed and have his food carried to him. When his dinner was not brought to him on Wednesday he drew his boot and smashed the windows. It was decided to prosecute him.

FOOT AND MOUTH. We understand that as a result of the efforts made by Mr. P. Crumley, M.P., to have the foot and mouth restrictions in Fermanagh modified, the Department expect to be able to reduce the area, restricted very soon, and if there are no further outbreaks, to permit Enniskillen and Lisnaskea fairs to be held.

COMPENSATION. It was stated by Mr. Falls, solicitor, at the Enniskillen Quarter Sessions on Saturday, that in the application of Mrs. Mary Hamilton, of Newtate, for compensation in respect of loss sustained by the death of her husband as result of injuries received by him on the 10th June in an accident arising out of and in the course of his employment as a farm servant for Lord Enniskillen, a sum of £150 had been lodged in Court and there was an application to apportion it. His Honour made an order that Mrs. Hamilton be now paid a sum of £3, and £1 a month commencing on the 1st December.

MANORHAMILTON ENTERTAINMENT POSTPONED. We are requested to state that the entertainment billed to take place in the Courthouse, Manorhamilton, on Friday (November 1st) has been postponed owing to the Sub-Sheriff (Mr. Vaughan?) objecting to the use of a cinematograph owing to danger of fire. The committee are negotiating for the local hall.

84 WEDS 70. REMARKABLE ROSLEA WEDDING. A wedding which attracted more than the usual amount of interest bestowed on such functions took place at Clogh Parish Church, Roslea, last week, the contracting parties being James Quinn and Mrs. Reade, at Shanroe. Mr. Quinn is a smart active man of the labouring class, aged close on 70. The present partner of his joys is a widow lady of 84, who enjoys the old age pension, and the proceeds of a neat little farm between Roslea and Scotstown. She has had to mourn the loss of three previous husbands. A crowd cheered the happy couple when they came out of the Church after the ceremony.
