Now the stork question arises. Some say can you make a write-up, others say if you open you confounded fly-trap again about me there will be a funeral. Some say a funeral is a sad relic, while others would say it is a good thing. That flat footed, brindel faced, bow legged little Dutchman is out of the road and perhaps the stork will find different headquarters. But don’t it beat all how people will go. Oh yes, again it beats all how they will come. Some blame Fred Carpenter, others blame Dr. Housely, while still others got it in for Dr. Ross. Be that as it may, these doctors are all friendly with the father bird, especially if everything goes well. Mr. and Mrs. Dick were presented with a baby girl January 1st, 1913.
Ira Robbins, who has been seriously ill for some time, is somewhat better at this writing.
Magdalene Carpenter is assisting Mrs. Harry Oens in her household duties.
Mr. A. Heath caught a large red fox in a common trap last Monday.
Fred Dankemyer was called to Granton last Tuesday on telephone business.
Leo Dankemyer has been seriously ill with the measles.
The first day of the year we fared well. We visited at the Gordon Davis home and if any more invitations of that caliber come across our path we are very willing to accommodate them. A beautiful New Year’s dinner which had been skillfully prepared by Mrs. Davis was awaiting us. The turkey was a sorry looking object after dinner as everything had disappeared and gone into our bread basket with the exception of the head and that would have had a close call if nature had not placed it so far away from the body on account of the long neck.. We’re hoping we can repeat this visit in the near future.
