James A. Fink and Wil­liam S. Martin each pre­sented his wife with a beau­ti­ful ma­hogany Vic­trola, as an Easter gift. The in­stru­ments were fur­nished by James S. Balthaser, dealer.

Wil­liam Neiman, who lately sev­ered his con­nec­tion with the Ham­burg Foundry Com­pany, has pur­chased the Fisher Farm at Berne Sta­tion, ten­anted by Al­fred DeLong.

The mem­bers of the Berks Foundry and Man­u­fac­tur­ing Com­pany, of West Ham­burg, had their sec­ond an­nual ban­quet Mon­day evening with their em­ploy­ees at the Amer­i­can Ho­tel. The em­ploy­ees re­ceived a bonus earned by them dur­ing 1917. Some re­ceived more than $100.00 and the ma­jor­ity over $50.00. The com­pany will turn over nearly three acres of ground for the use of the em­ployee’s war gar­dens.

The fu­neral of Jeremiah A. Bausher, ex-Recorder of Deeds, was held from his late res­i­dence on North Third Street, Ham­burg, Satur­day af­ter­noon. Af­ter brief ser­vices at the house by Rev. Charles P. Free­man, the fu­neral pro­ces­sion moved to St. John’s Ceme­tery in au­to­mo­biles. In­ter­ment was made in the me­mo­rial mau­soleum. Fur­ther cer­e­monies were con­ducted in the First Re­formed Church.
