More Doings at the J. B. Clark Meat Market, West Main St., Goshen, New York


Since publishing Workday Wednesday J. B. Clark's Meat Market, Goshen, New York  last week, I located some newspaper articles about 2nd Great Grandfather Jeremiah B. Clark and his shop. They were published in a regular column called “AT THE COUNTY SEAT. INCIDENTS AND HAPPENINGS IN GOSHEN” except “BURGLARS CAUGHT IN THE ACT”.

On Sunday morning a bunch of keys was found on West Main street, which the owner can have by going to the market of J. B. Clark, and proving property.

A pocketbook was found on Saturday which the owner can have returned by calling at the market of J. B. Clark and proving property.

Mr. J. B. Clark has six potatoes that weigh eight pounds and thirteen ounces, the largest weighing one pound and thirteen ounces.

I wish somebody took a picture of the potatoes!

A hearing in the case of William Stewart, who was arrested, yesterday, for procuring meat illegally was held before Justice C. W. Coleman, this morning, at 10 o’clock. Stewart had procured meat from J. B. Clark to the amount of $40, which he had charged, without authority, to Rev. Geo. C. Betts, by whom he was employed.

BURGLERS CAUGHT IN THE ACT

Arrested by Vigilant Officer While Robbing a Goshen Meat Market

(From our Goshen Correspondent)

Last night an attempt was made to enter the meat market of J. B. Clark, on West Main street. Officer William Ehlers going by saw the burglers at work, and promptly captured them. Their booty consisted of forty-seven cents in money and a bologna sausage. They were arraigned before Justice Swezey, this morning, and held for the Grand Jury. One of the burglers is a negro, and gives his name and address as Hezikiah Brown, of Philiadelphia. His companion is a white man, Edward Miller, of Dayton, Ohio.
