Chas. Wollenberg made a mistake the other day while slicing off a steak, his thumb suffering from the error.

A good sized crowd gathered at Odd Fellows Hall Tuesday night to celebrate the 73rd anniversary of the order.

A good story was told on George Meek, who went out early in the morning to feed his horses, and being sleepy, laid down in the hay mow and went to sleep. The family, going to church and returning, became alarmed at his absence and started a search. He was eventually found.

Another good one is told on Uncle Steve Andrews who purchased a new pair of pants and strutted around town to show them off. The buttons dropped of one by one, and it is stated that Uncle Steve stopped at a house where he knew the family well, thinking he would get them sewed on, but the lady who answered his knock told him he would have to wait awhile as she was making her toilet.
