York Center (29 September 1911)


Rev. E. R. Kildow has been sent back to preach on the Loyal and York charge.


A covered wagon was seen on our streets one day last week. They came from Dakota and were on their way to Dorchester. They report everything dried up there and no crops at all.


Calvin Scoles delivered corner stones for the town last Saturday.


Wednesday while working on Mr. Curtis’ silo quite an accident occurred. The staging broke, letting Wm. Vandeberg and Ferd Curtis fall to the ground.  Will was not seriously hurt, but Ferd was quite badly hurt. He was taken to the Marshfield Hospital where he has since undergone a successful operation for a fractured skull.

Abe Vandeberg delivered two cows to Granton Tuesday morning.
