Jacob Rossman has built a splendid bowling alley in connection with his hotel, the alleys are 75 feet long, laid with two inch strips, one inch thick set on edge, the walls are plastered, also the ceiling, making a splendid room. 

We predict the alleys will be kept warm.  


The programs will be out next week, for the dance at the Colby House.  Those who attended Mr. Blanchard’s New Years dance will not fail to attend this one, and who did not attend the New Years dance should be at this one to see how well Horace and his lady entertain their guests.
