G.L. Redmond and wife were seen in our midst Thursday. Miss Belle Meeks left for her home at Alma Center a few days ago. A few weeks ago we stated that Philip White had sold his farm. Since then we have learned that we were misinformed and will take it all back and swear we never said it. Talk about editors being cross and ugly. Why, we think they are the best natured and most obliging people on earth. Miss Anna Hales entertained a number of guests Thursday afternoon. Logs came in so fast the fore part of last week that Herb Visgar was compelled to start his saw mill in order to make room. Last Thursday morning a strange animal wa observed in the yard by Mrs. Edna Lawrence's children and on closer investigation proved to be an wild cat. G.S. Rowe and A.
