East Lynn (27 Apr 1916)

Word reached Granton early last week that O.W. Becker had captured the outlaw Villa and was bringing him in all haste to that place to be executed and his scalp sent to Washington, D.C., but great was their disappointment when Mr. Becker arrived with the supposed bandit chief dressed in female attire, handcuffed, muzzled and hogtied, the captive proved to be a poor harmless old squaw, who had become footsore and weary by the roadside.

H.E. Wordell, the cheese-maker, will put a new concrete floor in his factory and make other improvements, and well he may, for in the short time he has been in possession, the factory has nearly doubled its output and new patrons are being added to his list daily. There is no more frothing at the mouth when pay day comes, but everyone is happy and contented.

Oscar Sternitzky had the misfortune to lose a valuable horse Sunday.

John Schmoll is building a house and expects to move his family and household goods from Kautauna the fore part of May.

The purebred stallion Colonel, Chas. Guk, owner, will stand at the Herman Wagner barn, Granton, every Wednesday, at Matt Yeger’s every Saturday and at the home barn the rest of the week.
