Incendiaries at Work

New York, 1895

The police of Far Rockaway are puzzled by an incendiary fire that damaged the summer cottage of J. Furman at Inwood to the extent of $300, and endangered the lives of Mrs. Cornelius Davenport and her children, who live in the house. A hole had been cut from the outside into an unoccupied room on the lower floor and through this combustibles had been introduced and the match applied.


SMITH — SMITH. — By the Rev. J. Howard Hobbs, on March 27th, 1895, Abraham D. Smith to Miss Phebe Smith, both of Jamaica.
