East Lynn (18 November 1910)


Mr. and Mrs. Charles Guk took in the sights at Sauerkraut City last Sunday.


Adolph Pusheck had some cattle dehorned on Tuesday by parties unknown to us.


Mr. and Mrs. Chas Kempin called on Reinhold Guk last Sunday.


So be it!  If a man goes to Chili in the morning and finds that the road is not wide enough on his return in the evening, the poor road boss will get the blame.  The ways of the transgressor are hard.


Wm. Guk delivered a cow to Chili last Monday.


A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. James Quicker last Monday.  When Jim was called upon to do the fair thing he said "Ich warde das schon recht machen."


We will admit that we were not so handy to raise sausage as Heathville was raising a dressed calf out of the mud that he had accidently dropped when old lady Eggert appeared on the scene with something that looked like an Indian war club.


The next thing in order is to get the cattle tested. When that is done and the poor critters are slaughtered, then we will resign.


Henry Jensen has been on the sick list for a few days last week, but at present writing he is again on the jump.


Trouble comes to all of us in time, but if some one does not go bonds for H. A. K. of Heathville there will be trouble galore.  His depredation almost reached the climax when he started for Chili Tuesday morning with an old nag that ought to have known better than to kick over the cross bar when the owner tickled him under the fifth rib with a squirrel pole. The accident happened at Fred Carpenter’s place of business and as the above mentioned was busy repairing the broken parts of the rig and the owner was telling him all about it how it happened and all this and that the great beast thought they had no more use for him and started for home, but alas, he soon came to grief.  The owner being known for his wit and good humor took a short cut and cleared the fences with a single bound like Chas. Guk’s hound Corbett when he is after a wolf and caught the horse just as he was making the last turn in the road.
