 Pike Speaks  Volume 13 Number 1 January 2019  has been released.  Here is an example of what you will find: "Fred Immel, who resides near Higby, was the victim of a serious accident last Saturday and received injuries that may yet cause his death.    On Saturday Mr. Immel started to the woods with a one horse wagon intending to haul ties. No one accompanied him and his failure to return at the proper time was the first intimation to his family that anything was wrong. A search failed to discover the cause of his absence and not until the evening of the next day did his anxious friends learn of his accident. Owing to his condition the man was then  unable to give a lucid account of what happened to him, but it is thought that while in the woods his horse ran away and that he was thrown from the wagon and badly hurt about the head. During the time from Saturday forenoon until Sunday evening he had wandered about in a dazed condition, and his death would probably have soon occurred from exposure and lack of medical attention.    Dr. Evans, of Richmondale was called and his examination revealed the fact that Immel is suffering from a severe concussion of the brain. At the last report the injured man was resting some easier, but there is some doubt of his complete recovery. August 9, 1900  Waverly News"
