Hewett (8 Aug 1918)

Last Week
Mrs. Van Essen has been very sick, but is reported better at this writing. Clara Bruny is working for her.

George Amidon and wife of Melrose are visiting relatives here.

Lon and Bill Cook are putting up the hay on the old homestead this year.

Johnnie Larson, Paul Albrecht were called to the colors from this town last Friday.

Jossie Wood and Lon Cook each hauled a load of cheese to town Monday.

Walt Amidon and wife and Bill Dux and wife autoed to Fairchild one day last week.

Monday and Tuesday mornings seemed pretty cool after such warm weather as we had been having.

This Week
Mrs. Lon Cook received word Saturday that her son, Bennie Hart, had arrived safely over the seas.

Don Jacobs states in his letters to the writer what enormous fruit crops they have in California. He says that wages are 60c an hour to gather the fruit and 2,000 soldiers are let off the reservation where he is at San Jose to help gather it, and yet hundreds of bushels go to waste.

Davey Wood answered his call to the colors Monday and left for Missouri. Here’s luck to you, Davey.

Henry Clark and wife, in company with a couple of others, called at Lon Cook’s Sunday.

Art and Ethel Cook and Naomi Durst spent Sunday with the young folks at Bruny’s.

Frank Ayers and wife and Irv Ayers spent Sunday evening with the Lon and Bill Cook families.

This community was sadly shocked to hear of the death of Fred Bohnhoff. He had carried mail here for 12 or 13 years and was an all-around good fellow. He will be greatly missed. The Walt Amidon, John Durst, Herman Albrecht, Jake Laager, Lon and Will Cook families attended the funeral from here.
