The crops in New England never promised better than at this season. Indian corn is in fine condition, of a dark green, and luxuriant, and quite as forward as usual.

Chief Burrell and his officers were on the trail Sunday for persons who had their places of business open contrary to law.
But few places were found open for business and these were at Houghs Neck and South Quincy and were promptly closed up.
Some of these were of parties who had been refused a license as a common victualler at the last meeting of the City Council, and others were of those who run grocery stores and had made no application. All of the places were ordered to close up which they did.

Unless police interfere the proposed battle will probably be the most sensational bit of gang warfare ever staged in Quincy . . .

PEMBROKE - In a movie-like scene, a sleeping 6-year-old Winchester boy was thrown from the back seat of an open-top 1913 Ford touring car and landed uninjured in the arms of the driver of a 1958 Austin-Healey convertible in a three-car collision here early last night.
Adding to the improbability, the boy's father was also thrown from the Model T Ford and landed in the rumble seat of the Austin- Healey, suffering only minor injuries . . .

At 97, Miss Liberty needs new torch, repairs
Patriot Ledger news services
NEW YORK - The Statue of Liberty needs a new torch and more than $20 million in other repairs, a team of American and French architects reports.
. . . The team's study, delivered to the National Parks Service yesterday, identified 13 trouble spots for restoration work that will begin in September and take about two years to complete.
. . . "The statue symbolizes the country's strength, and to have that arm fall down wouldn't do anything to show that strength," said New York architect Richard Seth Hayden . . .
