Shortville Center (20 Mar 1919)

W.E. Bell and Ralph Short hauled out new silos one day last week. There are quite a number of new silos going up here this spring.

Vern Kegley returned home from Vernon County last Thursday.

The Ladies Aid at Jess Wilding’s last Thursday was well attended.

T.M. Winters has installed a new milking machine. Tom says he has been cow-licked enough.

A.E. Wilding and wife, who are living at Tripoli, were back for a short visit last week.

Charlie Mackeprang has purchased a new 30 U.S. machine gun. He says the deer won’t run over him next fall. Charlie had some narrow escapes last fall.

Lost—Floyd Hagie disappeared from his home about two weeks ago. Anyone knowing of his whereabouts will please notify his parents, as they are becoming worried about him. He was going west, running a Ford car and wore a red necktie and a straw hat.

Frank Matousek has traded his farm for property in Chicago and will soon move his family to that city.

Orta Marshal is walking around these days with a smile that won’t come off, for he is the proud father of a 9-pound boy, and we all wish to congratulate him and his wife.
