The New Year has come and gone. Our resolutions are all made again, but don’t let us forget the fact that we must buckle down to another year of toil and struggle to make out an existence if we are going to accomplish very much. Why not try and do something this year to make the world better. Let’s try.
Ferd Haack of Stratford was here on business last Thursday.
Mrs. John Lastofka and daughters Grace and Mildred and Fern Rowe were guests of Mrs. Jennie Fulwiler and daughter Violet last Tuesday afternoon.
Victor and Gertrud Vincent were home for the holidays.
Last Tuesday Frank Lueck, Frank Greeler and his two boys, Edward and Frank, Martin O’Brien and son Will were out after a wolf.. The animal was chased up in Mr. Lueck’s woods and Mr. Lueck shot at it but missed. About noon the wolf crossed the road between John Lastofka’s barn and A.P. Fulwiler’s residence. The hunters gave chase all day, but we did not learn whether they got it or not.
