Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
July 05, 1916

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

The band concert given in the park Wednesday evening was one of the best heard by the public for some time. As a feature of the program, Frank Wilson rendered a beautiful baritone solo, "The Wanderer." Mr. Wilson is an exceptionally fine player and the band is very much benefited by his arrival. Mr. Brooks has in his band three good soloists - Grant Hayes, clarinet; Harry Sandquist, cornet; and Frank Wilson, baritone.

T. J. Mahan and daughter, Katherine, formerly of this city, came Monday from McKinney, TX., where they had lived for the last six year, to make their home here. Mr. Mahan is a member of the firm of Johnston & Mahan, marble and granite dealers.

Maurice Keating, who a few months ago accepted a position with the Hudson-Ferber Company, of Minnespolis, MN., as recently been promoted to the position of head of the traffic and claims department of the company.

Roger Darrow has accepted a position in the clothing store of Price & Agee.

DIAGONAL - Work has begun Tuesday on the new bandstand at the corner of Third and Main Streets. The stand will be 14 feet square, eight feet to the floor and have a large arch at each end of the four sides to allow access to the cistern over which it stands. Arrangements have been made with the Williams Garage to light the stand with electricity.


  • Mr. and Mrs. John Miller are the proud parents of a baby boy, born June 28. The newcomer weighed nine and one-half pounds and was named John Wilson.
  • RINGGOLD - A new girl came to the home of Oscar McAninch Sunday afternoon and persists in making her home with them.
