Malone Palladium, November 1, 1900
We notice the Malone PALLADIUM did not mention that a large number of citizens from Harrietstown and other southern towns accompanied the Saranac Lake band to Malone on Friday last. Of course, there are but few of us here, but when we do make an attempt to show our patriotism we like to be noticed. We seldom make much noise, but we are always doing something.—Saranac Lake Enterprise. This was a grave oversight, neighbor, and we hasten to apologize. Saranac Lake and the other south towns are alive with good Republicans this year. And they will be heard from on election day. The next time you visit Malone, neighbor, we will see that your name gets "into print."
