Sykesville Items, Democratic Advocate, February 12, 1887Great improvements Begun and Contemplated
–A Creamery–The Corn Exchange–Getting His Voice Tuned.
Many exchanges and more improvements are promised in Sykesville for a Spring opening. Postmaster Brown (Frank Brown) will dispose of his cottages at public auction, and will put the proceeds in his long contemplated hotel enterprise.

Mr. Lewis H. Selby, long and favorably known as the operator of Springfield Mill, will vacate at the expiration of his lease in March, when Postmaster Brown will convert the mill into a creamery. Many more improvements will be commenced and some completed by early summer.

While attending and anticipating every want of the people of Baltimore for a prompt and early delivery of their mails, Postmaster Brown never forgets Carroll county. He will continue to improve and build new public roads from his own private purse, and will erect substantial buildings to add to the taxable basis of the county, and he always finds time to listen to a yoeman from Carroll, even if he wears his pants in his boots.

The new cottage office of Mrs. Moorehead, being built bv Mr. James S. Hyatt, will soon be completed. It is a nice little structure and will be occupied by our popular young physician, Dr. C. W. Heffinger.

Mr. E. M. Mellor, one of Sykesville’s substantial merchants, will build a handsome residence on his lot near the Catholic church. Work on it will be commenced at once. Mr. Lewis H. Schultz will change his front, that is, the front of his lot, by removing a small house therefrom to a lot he recently purchased from Mr. George Hayworth. This will be a decided improvement, as it has shut off the view and obstructed his entrance.

Mr. Zimmerman, too, is getting more progressive, (in progressive euchre,) and has given the hall of the firm to win the honors in.

The Sykesville Corn Exchange meets spasmodically now, and only by accident does the President, Vice-President and Recording
Secretary meet their peculiar duties calling them often to different fields; but when they do meet, and there is a full Board, stand from under! for corn is bound to go down.

Mr. James M. Hobbs who has for some time been with the McDonald Bros, as clerk, has left their employ, much to the regret of his many friends, as James was very popular.

Dr. Philipps still progresses with his singing school. He is now working on the voice of one of our livest merchants, Mr. Samuel
R Duvall. Mr. D. can make a Champion Binder hum, but we don’t believe he can hum a tune yet.
