Hoople's Estate

New York, 1895

The News of Queens.

The late William H. Hoople left an estate valued at $442,500.

Miss Phebe Hendrickson gave a sociable to her friends on Wednesday evening.

The Queens bicycle club had their initial run of the season on Sunday to Rockaway Beach.

Highway Commissioner Frank J. Lott gave a supper to The Penochle club at Barb's hotel on Wednesday evening.

The Queens field club and the Crystals of Mott Haven will play a game of base ball on the Athletic grounds on Saturday afternoon.

Miss Mary Graff, daughter of Anthony Graff, and John Stumpler were married at the residence of the bride's parents at Creedmoor on Wednesday evening.

The public school closed for the summer months last Friday. It is rumored that Miss Tallman and Mr. Hallock, teachers at the school will not return.

The Rev. J. S. N. Demarest, of the Reformed church, and the Rev. Charles P. Tinker of the Floral Park Methodist church, exchanged pulpits Sunday morning.

The Kaffe Klatsch club, composed of the lady residents of Queens, Mrs. George Haubitzer, president, held a meeting at the residence of Mrs. Richard Duryea in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

The field sports at the Athletic grounds on July 4th for the benefit of Thomas Lloyd, owner of the grounds, will consist of throwing the ball, and running bases by members of the Field Club, bicycle races, potato race and a game of base ball between the Field Club and the Floral Park nine. There will be a display of fireworks in the evening.

The statement in THE FARMER last week, that the Reformed church had contributed $258.99 to benevolence during the year, did not do the church justice. The sum stated was all that the church treasurer put in his annual report, but the total of the gifts to benevolence, Mr. Demarest says, was $573.08.

The game of baseball on Saturday between the Coronas and the Field club was a splendid exhibition of scientific playing by amateurs. The Queens boys won the game in the fifth inning by bunching their hits, bringing home four runs. The features of the game were a difficult one hand stop by Nichols, and the pitching of Darman and Richardson. The score was 9 to 8.
