Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, November 29, 1916

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

County Auditor-elect E. E. Cornwall and family arrived Monday from Ellston and will make their home in Mount Ayr. Mr. Cornwall will familiarize himself with the work in the auditor's office before the first of the year.

The fine arts department of the Village Improvement Society announces that it has secured the services of two highly educated instructors in vocal and instrumental music for Mount Ayr. They are teachers in Graceland College at Lamoni and they have consented to give lessons one day of each week. The society has about 22 pupils to start out with and it is hoped others will take advantage of this rare opportunity.

The new M.E. Parsonage is the last building to be completed in Diagonal this year, and makes a total of nineteen dwellings and one business house during the year.

DIAGONAL - A large force of men is at work erecting electric light poles in town and we hope to soon have electric lights.


  • LESANVILLE - Mr. and Mrs. Hi Millsap are the proud parents of a little daughter, born November 24.
  • BEACONSFIELD - Mr. and Mrs. John Ward are the proud parents of a girl, born November 25.
  • Mr. and Mrs. George Fletchall are rejoicing over the arrival of a son at their home on November 19.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ballard, of Des Moines, are the parents of a son, born November 5.
