Silos all filled in this vicinity.


J.P. LaStofka had quite a smash up with his corn husker Thursday at Frank Krejci’s.


Saturday, while filling Geo Wilson’s silo the belt came off the silo filler and started to wind on the engine pulley.  Frank Plummer was the first to notice it, jumped off the load and threw the belt off the engine, but in trying to do so the belt caught him and threw him some 20 feet before it let go.  Frank’s foot was somewhat hurt and it will lay him up for several weeks.
