Everybody seems to be getting the band fever.  Even East Lynn is organizing one, although at present there are only three members, namely a man, a boy and a bugger, and will be known as the haggar shag band. Professor Dusseldorf, a distant relative of the emperor has been secured to act as instructor and ring master.  The leading pieces that will be played are as follows: Die Wacht am Rhein, Hi Le, Hi Lo, and a few coon songs.  As time passes some new members will be added and those that cannot learn to play may sing, anything to make a noise.  Oscar Sternitzky, who is possessed with a gift to look into the future, is predicting a shortage in violin strings and is already raising cats with extra-large intestines and soon a factory will be established to manufacture the raw material into strings to supply this and the surrounding bands with strong repairs that they may saw away to their hearts content


A well appearing man from Chicago or some other place was in this neighborhood looking up a location with the intention to start some kind of business.  He was heard to make the remark that East Lynn was the most beautiful place that ever human eyes rested upon, and furthermore say as the inhabitants  are possessed with enormous big feet, a shoe shop might be a good paying proposition, and as business improves he is thinking of publishing a newspaper in connection with his other business.  The paper will no doubt be called the shoe makers journal.  Price 25 cents per year in advance.
