Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
October 4, 1916

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

Mount Ayr is to have a new depot. Plans provide for reconstruction of the old building and the building of an addition immediately west of where the old building stands. The building will be stuccoed and will have a tile floor, ladies' waiting room and all the modern conveniences which the town now affords, such as water, electric lights, etc.

With the close of the third week of school, the total enrollment of the high school was 176.

Walter Summers went Friday morning to St. Joseph to begin work in a drug store.

BLOCTON - Ernest Shay, who was born near Maloy and grew to manhood in our city, has built a modern veterinary hospital at Atchison, KS. Haste Campbell, also of Blockton, is his assistant.


  • MALOY - Mr. and Mrs. J. E. O'Connor are the proud parents of a baby girl, born September 27.
  • SALEM - Mr. and Mrs. Ed Johnson are the proud parents of a little daughter, born September 19.
