Rev. Mr. Wilson, of St. George's Episcopal church, of LeMars, will hold
services at the Dickinson school house next Sunday at three o'clock. All
are invited to attend.

Fredonia township now claims to have the finest school house yards of any
township in the county. A year ago each school house was supplied with a
well bricked up cyclone cave. This year the grounds have been set to
evergreens and surrounded with substantial woven wire fences, making the
grounds beautiful as well as safe. It is a move in the right direction.
Let us have more of the good work.
