It is our desire to publish all items of interest which happen within a reasonable distance of Granton.  But in spite of our watchful eyes some items are bound to escape our notice.

Chas. Sanger of Rockham, S. D., who is here with his son Ernest visiting relatives in this vicinity, went to Rochester, Minn., last Friday to consult Doctors Mayo in regard the boy’s condition. The latter is a lad of 19 years and until about two months ago enjoyed good health, since which time he has been affected with a sickness which seems to baffle the doctors.  The boy is at times a blank, being unable to talk and is almost helpless.  We sincerely hope that Mr. Sanger is finding encouragement at Rochester.
