West Eaton (13  Jun 1918)

Someday all doubt and mystery will be made clear; the threatening clouds which we now see will disappear.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gemmeke and family were at Hemlock Sunday to view the ruins of the cyclone of Friday evening.

Jason Bostwick took Mr. and Mrs. Ozanich and brother to Hemlock Sunday.

The cyclone last Friday destroyed a lot of valuable property for Henry Gemmeke.

Mr. Lenher had the misfortune to break his car while on the road to Hemlock Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. Joe Susa, Jr., were callers at Joe Susa, Jr.’s Sunday morning.

Miss Iva Goss and Lillian Stafford attended the party given at Bahl’s Saturday evening in honor of Mrs. Bahl’s sister, who is visiting with her from Sheboygan.

Mrs. Louie Arch has a sister visiting her.

Mike Podobnik has begun work on his new barn.

Jason Bostwick is helping Mr. Podobnik with some work on his barn.

Frank and Will Able lost all of their valuable timber through the cyclone last Friday.

Lyle Bostwick called at Davey’s Thursday evening.

John Susa has moved onto his farm. We hope he will meet with success in farming.

Just as long as we go on with our Sunday pleasure and forsake the Lord’s work and churches, just so long will the Lord continue to send destruction upon us, for the earth is His and they that dwell therein. Let him without guilt cast the first stone.
