A number of the old soldiers of Mount Ayr and several of their wives visited Bedford yesterday to see the new soldiers' monument recently erected in the public park as a memorial to the defenders of the Union.
The matter of securing a monument recently erected in the court yard at Mount Ayr will probably be submitted to the board of supervisors of this county at an early date.
Hattie Robinson, who has been employed for several months at the bank of Ellston, resigned and returned to her home in Albia Saturday to take up a position there. Miss Partlow, a graduate of the Capital City
Commercial College, has accepted the position as bookkeeper vacated by Miss Robinson.
ELLSTON: A meeting was held Tuesday night at Paul Jackson's barbershop for the purpose of organizing a band in Ellson. There was a good crowd present and over 20 pieces enrolled to start with
and others are expected to enter.
KELLERTON: S. E. Smith has traded his property in Kellerton for a restaurant in Davis City and will move there soon to take possession.
Mrs. Glen Stoher left Saturday for Minneapolis, MN. where she will join
her husband, who is employed there and they will make their home.
LIBERTY: Some time ago we mentioned that there were three young men keeping a bachelor's hall in the Eurkea school district. Since then two of these bachelors have seen the error of their ways and have taken
school marms to stir up their cakes for them and we would suppose this would naturally make the other one feel more lonely. However, the school board has taken the matter in hand and ordered that there be no school
taught in the Eureka school district for the term of one year or until there are enough in the district to maintain a school, as at present they are minus a school.
LINCOLN: Frank Routh is wearing a smile that won't come off. Reason: a baby boy born July 2.
