Chili (16 September 1910)
Congratulations were in order for Jack Molamphy and his bride who were married a few days ago. A chivarri was given in their honor to which was responded to in the usual but perhaps doubtful good way.
We are having nice weather again after the frost killed a good share of the corn and pumpkins. Everybody is busy now cutting corn by hand, or having it cut with a corn binder.
Clark Waterman left last week for St. Paul to take in the fair. He intended to come back after a weeks sojourn, but changed his mind and went further for a spell.
Some of the boys who went into the harvest fields are drifting back one after another. Before long they all will have returned.
Gottlieb Bertschinger and Wenzel Gebhart went to Milwaukee to take in the State Fair.
Tom Gibson is having a chimney built for his barbershop. Ike Morrison is doing the job with Harry Hutt assisting. Now look for a good artistic chimney when the job is done. Herman Ketel wanted to do the work, but he was too busy with other jobs at the time.
Louis Reichert is traveling on the western shore of Lake Michigan, taking in Chicago, Milwaukee State Fair and other points of interest. A little vacation is all right for a business man.
John Hutt rented the first story of his hotel to Al Snow, while he and his family go west where his wife and sister-in-law will commence a restaurant business at Phillips, S. D. John will stay here long enough to take in the deer hunt.
Mrs. Simons and son John visited with Degener’s a few days from Saturday till Sunday.
