High school opened Monday and is now running at a steady jog. There are 26 scholars enrolled, which is an excellent showing for the first days of the second year.

The G.A.R. will have a dance in Colby Hall, Friday evening, Sept. 17.

Peter Pinter has his new blacksmith ship completed and is now ready to do any work in that line.

The school board is having the school house replastered. Jas. Bursell of Dorchester is doing the work.

The young people surprised the inmates of J. D. Wicker’s residence, Monday evening, and had a good time.

F. X. Sagstetter is having an addition built on the west side of his building, Phil Henkel and crew are doing the carpenters work.

Fred Bredemeyer says, “look out for the largest and finest stock of buttons ever brought to Colby.” He will receive them his week.

Mrs. W. H. Bartell has the thanks of the Junior and the family for a basket of green corn, also Mrs. Vincent Stepan for a basket of tomatoes.
