East Lynn (3 March 1911)


The first paragraph was too light print and not feasible to try to type


The Charles Guk household is entertaining the grippe this week.


Mr. and Mrs. Herman Jensen attended the dance at Chili last Saturday night.


Hank Lenhart of Nasonville made a professional call at C. Guk’s last Friday.


Well, wonders never cease.  There is a young man living in this vicinity that has a quiet disposition and is a good farm manager, but he has a team of horses that are giving him more than his share of trouble.  One day last week he drove to the village of Lynn with two sacks full of oats that he wished to get ground into feed and as he drove merrily along thinking of the glorious feast he would give his beautiful nags on his return home, but lo and behold, when he arrived at J. Breseman’s place of business the hay maker had melted all of the snow off the road and the horses thinking those two sacks weighed at least 3 tons disobeyed their master’s command and refused to go another step.  So the old remedy, the lash was promptly applied, but of no avail.  Kind friends gave him a boost and shoved the sleigh almost on top of the horses, but there was no use, the plugs were there and they intended to stay. So as Hank was sitting on the seat with bowed head thinking of his troubles and misfortunes his memory wandered back to a summer day when he saw an old woman driving an old hen out of the garden with her apron, and being aware what a stubborn critter the old feather leg was set him to thinking and all of a sudden a happy thought struck him and before anybody realized what was going on he grabbed a gunny sack in a firm grasp and jumping onto the seat he waved it frantically over his head and let out a war-whoop that would have made a Sioux Indian tremble with fear.  The horses bearing a great commotion in their rear turned their heads and almost dropped dead from fright, but rallied and took to their heels and went tearing along the road as if a thousand demons were after them.


Arthur Garbisch called on Louis Kleinschmidt Monday.


Oscar Sternitzky is having stove wood and feed cut this week.
