Heathville (26 May 1911)


Reports have it that Gordon Davis will build a brick silo this summer.


Sam Martin went through here last week on a horse trade.


Mrs. Joe Madler and her baby daughter are visiting at present with Mrs. Schmidtke.


Mr. Wendorf, a most obliging station agent at Chili is one of the main business men in that village.  Some say he came from Berlin, Germany, others say he is a half breed.  Be that as it may, if it wasn’t for him Tom Gibson would be left to the owls.  One takes the people’s money while the other gives them a close shave. Last week an elderly woman came into the depot accompanied with three boys, about 4, 5, 6 years old awaiting an incoming train. Before they had time to warm the seats in the depot they commenced: to hit the high spots and started a game of rough and tumble.  One of them in rambles tore a hole in his pants.  Wendorf sitting there reading a newspaper notice the rip in the boys’ pants and politely informed the mother of the mishap in the boy’s pants.  She grew excited and wanted to know where.  Without lowering his paper he told her on the west end.  The woman was puzzled and wanted to know where the west end was.  Pardon me, lady, but it’s where the sun sets.


Reinhold Guk of Gukville was in Chili last Saturday.  After licking up 2 or 3 schooners, he twisted his mustache and departed for home. 


A free Bible lecture of most interesting and helpful topics will be given by Frank Draker in the Fremont Town hall on Friday, May 26, commencing at 8 p.m.
