Heathville (1 April 1910)


And the more a woman knows about men, the less she has to say on the subject.


Joe Berd had his hand severely cut some time ago while he was engaged in starting his gasoline engine.


John Duffe is on the gain after being laid up with rheumatism about two months.


Miss Marion Smith finished a successful term of school last Friday in District No. 1 of the Town of Fremont.


Hank Gerrits was the lucky man to see the first robin about March 1st.  This happened after taking several eye openers.  He says sometimes it makes a man see double.


And Daughfuss Drake is the father of a 10 lb. girl.  Wonder if his best girl knows about it.


Mrs. W. W. Smith is still confined to her bed and at times is reported seriously ill.


Lem Smith has sold his farm to a party from Richland County.  Consideration $2900


It’s entirely out of our jurisdiction who gets the town offices. Election is coming and we can tell it, and if a man can’t he is either blind or otherwise useless.  We can tell it by their walk; now they stop and talk, at other times they walk by.  You can tell it by their hand shake and by the way they practice economy.  But everybody knows that every dog has his day and so on.  It is like cleaning house.  No sooner you go to caucus, a few days later you go to celebration, in the meantime you go through several rehearsals in the shape of primaries if you wish to call it that. Then the war cry in most struggles of this kind is: turn the dead beet out, he is useless.  He knows too much, some say he doesn’t know enough.  All of this sets a man to thinking and when he goes to the poles no wonder he thinks wrong.  Just before you go to the latter you wouldn’t know Jack Robinson from a nigger and you would swear on a stack of bibles that you voted for the right man.  When a man wants an office his private life becomes as transparent as a watermelon and for a time he wonders how he ever escaped penitentiary.  But it is impossible for a man to run affairs to please everybody and the man who can do that is the one who says nothing, does nothing, and is nothing.


At the caucus the following ticket was put up: Peter Hotchkiss for chairman, Chas. Mundt and Ed. Lamers for supervisors; Aug. Prust for treasurer, and John Hutt for Assessor.
