West Eaton (8 May 1919)

Mr. Gurgle had his saw mill and crew of men at the Geo. Gemmeke farm a few days last week.

We forgot to mention that William Able has a new Ford car. We are glad to see the farmers get cars, for they have earned them.

The Borgers children have been very sick with the flu.

Mr. Yartz has been very sick with the flu, but is better at this writing.

Gertrude Davey has been having the flu. It seems that sickness is trying to follow the Davey family through the spring. Mrs. Davey is not much better at this writing.

John Schmidt is at his home sick in bed. He thinks he has the flu.

John Vedrich returned from Ohio last week. He is in poor health after having the flu. He was sick about two months last winter.

Too late for last week

Mrs. Arch, who has been very low, is on the gain. Her neighbors all hope for a speedy recovery.
