Sykesville Items

April 1 1876

Democratic Advocate

The approach of the 1st of April has brought about a number of changes in our community, as well as a number of sales of personal property, which sold at good figures.

Mr. Julius B. Berrett is erecting a commodious warehouse here, for the purpose of storing fertilizers. His sales last fall were quite extensive, and the article sold seems to have given universal satisfaction.

Our worthy fellow citizen, Dr. Allen C. Hammond has been quite sick for two weeks,
but his physicians consider bis condition somewhat improved.

The Rev. Mr.Baldwin of the M. E. Church, who has recently been assigned to this charge, preached his first sermon here on last Sabbath night. Rev. W. T. D. Clem, the pastor in Charge during the last two years, left with his family for Baltimore, on the 24th.

Your statement a short time since, copied from the Baltimore Sun, in reference to the “old Piano,” was incorrect, as far us the death of Mr. Sykes is concerned. We had the pleasure of conversing with him for sometime on Saturday last. Although somewhat infirm physically, his mental faculties seem as vigorous as those of a man of twenty-five. He is living at present at Elysville, Howard county.
There will be communion Heprices at Spring- held Presbyterian Church, Rev. R. 1,. McMurran pastor, on Sabbath, April 2d.
