The weather man must have found our Indian summer, for we have been enjoying ideal weather for the past week.

Ralph Lawson ahs returned home to work his father's farm, bringing with him his bride. We extend our congratulations to this young couple and wish them good luck.

The boys of the neighborhood turned out one night last week and welcomed Ralph Lawson and his bride back to Sherwood by ringing all the cow bells, old saws, in fact anything that would made a noise.

Our cheese factory is getting new patrons each week and the receipts for the last year should surely be encouraging to the farmers. The farmers should also be congratulating themselves in having such a careful painstaking cheese maker as Mr. Joh Vogeli. Anyone can visit the cheese factory at any time and they will always find it in a clean, sanitary condition.
