Rudolph Frantz lost a cow last week. The animal caught her head between two logs and in trying to free herself, broke her neck.

George Bue’s foot is getting better.

One of Arthur Short’s work horses died last week, which is a big loss to Arthur just in the busy season.

The Ladies Aid meets this week Thursday at Andrew Short’s.
