These clippings were saved in a book by my great-grandmother Sarah Elizabeth
(SELBY) AGAR, or perhaps by her mother, Eliza (BELL) SELBY. Unfortunately,
most are not dated and I do not know which newspaper they were from.
However, I suspect that many of them were from The Alliston Herald. I will
type them just as they appear -- spelling mistakes, punctuation and all!
Each posting here represents one page (one side) from the book.
