News: Lindsey (7 Feb 1913)


Surnames: Hartl, Tilton Hahm, Rausch, Paulson, Muir


----Source: Granton News (Granton, Clark Co., Wis.)  02/07/1913


Mrs. Wm. Hartl was called to Merthport by the illness of her parents.


W.L. and James Tilton met the train at Chili Sunday morning.


Ed Hahm shot a fox Friday.


In last week’s issue of the News we see another of those typographical blunders of the country editor, when it says "Ross Paulson and Dan Rausch autoed to Prey."  However, we take it for granted that the News has taken that considerate way to express the spiritual condition of those two gentlemen.  Now if the News had said "Ross Paulson and Dan Rausch out to pray," that would have been absolutely without tact or journalistic acumen, and probably would have been resented in a way decidedly unpleasant to the poor News man.  But the delicate and timely way the public was given the tip will doubtless prove efficacious and we hope to see a great spiritual uplift in and about Granton soon.


Who started the report that the News would give a prize of a seven passenger 1913 Ford automobile to the correspondent who would say something new or original about the ground hog day this week?  Alas, our ground hog was eaten up a month ago.


The annual meeting of the A.S.E. was held at the town hall Saturday.  Not being on the inside, we can’t report for that popular enterprise.


So far as we know there is no one seriously ill in the community at this writing.


Mrs. Cal Muir attended aid meeting in Chili, Wednesday.  Calvin was very lonesome all that while.
