▶ The Carnegie hero fund commission has awarded a bronze medal and $1,000 to Marion P. Grenier of Plattsburgh in recognition for her bravery in rescuing a 10-year-old girl from drowning in the Saranac River near the Plattsburgh shirt factory May 1, 1911. Miss Grenier, who is an operator at the Plattsburgh shirt factory, saw the child slip off the bank and into the river, when she then performed her heroic act.

▶ State prison Commissioner S. F. Quick has approved the application of Col. Joseph F. Scott, state superintendent of prisons, to establish a lumber industry at Clinton prison. In his report the commissioner says the plan contemplates “the cutting of the burned tracks and selling in the open market of such timber to pulp mills and other sources; the cleaning up of the land in a manner suitable to the reforestation of those tracks.”
