The crowd in town last Saturday was the smallest of any Saturday for some time. The answer is easy: Everybody is busy in the harvest field, but there were many folks in to do their trading after supper.

Harvesters around here have been getting about $2.50 a day and board. In some cases, $3 has been paid.

The Grand will begin remodeling next week. Grocery stock will be moved to the rear of the room now occupied. In its place will be put the men’s furnishings department and the shoe department. The west room will be exclusively for dry goods and ladies’ ready-to-wear garments.

Any of the boys or girls who are taking part in flower bed and lawn contests and who desire to have their work inspected should phone to Superintendent St. John or Mrs. Carl C. Ehrlich.

Mrs. G.E. Eye went to Delphos the last of the week for a two week’s visit with relatives. Dr. Eye took her up in the car, returning the next day. He made the trip home, 128 miles, in about five hours. Going up, they had bad luck and were ten hours or more on the road.
