Along the Delaware Turnpike

My next article for Our Towne Bethlehem is about the old Albany and Delaware Turnpike.  (You might be sitting in traffic there a lot this summer.) I came across this little article, and it made me smile.  Watch out! Mr. Scrafford's horses were on the loose in Normasnville in 1897.

 I think "a new Osborne Marker" is some sort of road sign, maybe a mile marker.  Google, however, is stumped.

The article is from the June 11, 1897 Altamont Enterprise.
