East Weston (Panther Creek) (8 May 1919)

The nice weather of late and Wm. Turville and Hank Ross with their road drags, have certainly come to our rescue this spring with passable roads between here and Neillsville.

W. Steinhaus and Arnold Wilke are among the first this spring in getting things looking around the farm as though Uncle Sam might don a new pair of overalls during the year.

Frank Zickert and the Imig Bros. are everlastingly putting in grain. We always like to see Frank at work on the farm as he has some well-trained plow teams.

Cy. Snyder is back in these parts again, putting in the M. Lastofka crops at Ranch 1. Cy and Guy Snyder were in the trenches a few times while over in York, but they say that schoolma’ams’ warfare with the ruler and goad stick ain’t in it with the cruelty of the nuns.

Warren Barnett is punching tickets these days on Roy Sischo’s milk route. Roy was so anxious to get to work on his farm getting in his crops after being on the route so long, we may have to detail someone to hold him. His neighbors say he is so busy they can see him in any direction they look.

Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Wilke put a ray of sunlight in our Easter dinner in the way of a large Easter cake and Mrs. W. Steinhaus, Mrs. Willis Armitage, Mrs. Wm. Hurlburt and Grandma Demouth all seem to know by our skinny looks that we are fond of good things to eat, and when those kind of cooks get after the pastry, all men cooks go back and sit down.

Will Hurlburt contemplates putting up a sugar shanty on his west 40 acres where he has a fine piece of sugar woods. He has been successful in turning out a lot of good old sweet stuff during the last few years, and he says he is going to try and fill us kids up proper for once, and when he and M. Lastofka both get at the business only a mile apart, gee whiz, girls, yum, yum.

Although Ed. Begley has not been in the best of health for some time and has had a large share of sickness and sorrow in his family during the last year, he don’t fail to realize that he is one of those farmers that are a big help in feeding the world and he and his sons have always got their shoulders to the wheel.
