The continued fine weather gives farmers a chance to finish up planting and gives them a little rest between now and haying, which will be in full swing in about a month from now.
The dance Saturday in the M.W.A. Hall drew quite a crowd again. It was not so noisy as it was 2 weeks ago.
The Children’s Day of the Fremont Lutheran Church called out a large number of people from far and near. The weather was fine and the number of autoes on the ground shows that the auto is used more and more every year. Marshfield was well represented, so was Granton. Jake Henning ran a regular bus business and it kept him busy until almost supper time.
The Equity shipped another car of stock Tuesday.
Mrs. Emil Bosselman left again for Rochester, Minn. on Friday.
The Memorial Day was observed here in the usual way. The program in the afternoon in the M.W.A. Hall drew a big crowd and it was really fine. The children did their best, the fife and drum corps was good. Mr. Hungerford, as usual outdid himself. He could have said a good deal more, bu the time given him was limited and in spite of himself he used more than his allowance. But the field is so large that a good speaker can talk about a day like that. You can’t help yourself.
The regular monthly director meeting of the bank was held Monday afternoon.
The storm Wednesday night was one of the fiercest that we have had for some time. Lightning did quite a little damage again. It killed two cows for Louis Schilling, destroyed H. Lenhardt’s barn buildings at Nasonville, one barn of John Ure’s and did other damage.
