The moving of the Mount Ayr Public Library to the new building began today and it will require the remainder of the week to get the magazines and books in place. The new library will be dedicated on January 1.


The "Palace of Sweets," which has been owned and conducted by Rains & Hargis for the past year or more, was sold Friday to Clell Fuller and Howard McClanahan. It will be good news to the public that A. F. (Fatty) Collins will remain with the new firm.

Earl Hoover, who has been cashier of the bank at Decatur for some time, is moving to Benton to take the place of George L. Bartels as cashier of the bank there.
