Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
August 09, 1916

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

At a meeting of the library board held Thursday evening, the contract of the building of the new Carnegie Library, soon to be erected on the southwest corner of the square, was let to Young & Woodward, of Creston. As the amount to be received from the Carnegie Corporation will be but $8,000, it was necessary to make some eliminations and the bid of the contractors was reduced from $7,658 to $6,748. This firm built the Baptist Church and is now building Howard Tedford's new residence in Sheldon Heights. J. L. Kinsell, of Mount Ayr, was the successful bidder for the heating and plumbing, his bid being $1,042.97.

P. V. Farmer came Monday from Humeston to take up his work at the Hawkeye Lumber Company's yard.

Beall(?) Lucille Spurrier arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Spurrier on August 6th.

Combs & Hall will repair all inner tubes brought into their garage, free of charge on August 19, with the celebrated Bull Dog (never slip) tire patches.

ELLSTON - E. L. Todd has traded his telephone exchange here to H. B. Hayden, of Tingley.

A new brick garage is in the process of construction on the lots west of Dr. Hill's office and when completed, will be occupied by Richard Daub. Watch Ellston grow.

MALOY - The teachers have been hired for the Maloy school. Minnie Peterson, of Des Moines, will have charge of the advanced grades, and Mrs. John D. O'Connor of the primary. Extra grades will be added this year due to the consolidation.


  • POE - The Ora Harshes are rejoicing over the arrival of a little son, born July 30.
