Hewett (5 Dec 1918)

Charley Hart and family have moved in with his wife’s mother, Mrs. Ed. Haskins, for the winter and both families are sick with influenza, with the exception of one boy, Hesekiah Haskins.

Mrs. Will Dux has been quite sick, but is feeling better at this writing.

but wheeling is very poor now. Runners are better.

Mrs. Lon Cook’s mother, Mrs. J.A. Wood, has been quite sick the past two weeks.

Paul Albrecht and Willie Beulow are expected home from Camp Grant this week.

Mrs. G. Bruny is enjoying a visit with her nephew, Arnold Stryfeller, whom she had never met before. Mr. Stryfeller spent the past year in France and was at the front from the fore part of February until the middle of July, when he was wounded at the Battle of Marne. He was taken to a hospital and as soon as he was able, was sent to the U.S. to a hospital at Des Moines, Iowa, where his wound has healed, but his arm is still weak and his hand badly disabled, a thumb and finger being torn away by a piece of shrapnel. He tells some very interesting things, but does not seem very anxious to relate his experiences, but will answer all questions in a straightforward manner. He has a 30-day furlough and will report for duty at Fort Snelling, Minn. His home is in Oregon.

Jimmie and Josie Wood took dinner with their sister, Mrs. Flora Ritchie, at the Edward Strey home near Granton one day last week.

Lon Cook and wife and Mr. Cardarelle and son, Mike, spent Saturday afternoon at the Bruny home for a visit with Mr. Stryfeller.

Jake Bruny is working in the woods at Hiazer.

Gottlieb Bruny is visiting old friends and neighbors in Monroe County.

Death entered the home of Dan Dormady Sunday, taking their oldest child. Violet had been an invalid for several years, but no one thought she would be called home so soon. We sympathize with the bereaved family in their hour of sorrow.

Jake Laager and H.B. Parker butchered for Lon Cook Friday; also for themselves.
