Cleanup Day was a success. Twenty or thirty big wagonloads of trash were hauled off by the city wagons. Commissioner Kleinhammer was right on the job for two days and big improvement was made in the appearance of the alleys and the backyards of the town.
There were no Sunday School or church services in the town last Sunday, and there has been no school this week — all being closed down by Dr. G.E. Eye, county health officer, on account of the prevalence of measles in the community.
A representative of the Redpath-Horner people was here Saturday. He met with the local committee, and went over with them the plans for the Chautauqua here this summer.
A bloodhound bill of $87 was presented at the county commissioners meeting, the bloodhounds having been used in chasing the Mexican and the negro who escaped from the jail some time ago. The commissioners allowed $64, then passed a resolution that hereafter the county would not stand for any bloodhound bills.
Work on Bob Florer’s new residence, just east of Ed Sheldon’s and across from the Baptist church, is progressing nicely. The roof is about finished.
Jerry Forney is improving the front of his buildings—the restaurant, barber shop and Magathan’s bakery.
Are you planning a little outing of some kind this summer? How about camping in beautiful Central Park during Chautauqua week?
