York Center (30 June 1911)


Mr. and Mrs. Greenleaf Redmond were seen on our streets Thursday.


H. Olson hurt his arm one day last week and was unable to use it for a couple of days.


Quite a serious accident happened to Mrs. S. Bassett last Thursday.  While helping pack up and getting ready to move she accidently fell over a box, breaking her nose.  Dr. Ross is in attendance.


The York Center Band has their horns and is busy practicing for the Fourth.  Fine music like that is always worth hearing.


Wm. Lawrence is sick at the home of R. E. Lawrence with typhoid fever.


Bert Lawrence has rented the Walter Lawrence farm from Dr. Ross who recently purchased it.  Bert and family will make it their home here in the future.


Abram VandeBerg left Saturday for a visit with relatives at Baldwin and Crystal Lake.


Thursday morning while coming from the cheese factory Forest Rowe met an automobile; the auto did not scare Forest but we guess it did the horses, for it upset the milk cans and broke nearly all the spokes out of one of the wheels.


Mrs. Alton and daughters Fern and Viola were the guests of Mrs. Annie Timerson Friday night and Saturday.


Quite a few from this vicinity took in the sights at Neillsville Monday.


Farmers are busy cultivating and some have begun haying.


There was a gathering of relatives at the home of Abram VandeBerg last Friday evening.  Ice cream and cake were served.


The ice cream social at Walter Rowe’s was largely attended and all had a nice time.


Forest Rowe sawed wood for Ernest Rowe Tuesday.


Although it was a rather rainy day Tuesday the auction at Wm. Rogers was quite largely attended.


Saturday morning while getting ready to go to Granton Bert Lawrence’s team got a notion in their heads that they would rather not go.  While starting them up they began to back, backing the buggy into the shed and breaking the dash board and tongue.


Wm. VandeBerg is painting Mike Dorst’s barn.
