East Lynn (1 May 1919)

Last Saturday morning as Wm. Wagner was taking milk to the cheese factory, he found a revolver of the latest pattern in the middle of the road, in the exact center of what is known as Sauerkraut City. Who it was that left said weapon in such an exposed place, will no doubt forever remain a mystery, but nevertheless, it was a foolish, likewise dangerous, piece of business. Mr. Wagner has always been known to be a peaceable and law-abiding citizen, but since he has in his possession a dangerous piece of artillery, no man can foretell what the outcome will be. It is stated that on arrival at the factory, he flourished said gun in a true Jesse James manner and would not put it into concealment until the cheese maker, H.E. Wordell, had promised to raise his test two points the coming month. If gossip can be relied upon, he has placed an order with Monkey Sawbuck & Co., for a trainload of ammunition and will take daily practice. He also has his victims listed, Ed. Sternitzky being at the head. Thus far, no casualties have been reported, but are expected hourly.

Ernest Quicker of Ladysmith spent last week with his brother, Jim, and also called on old friends and acquaintances. Mr. Quicker lived in this neighborhood a number of years, but 14 years ago he sold his farm and moved to the above mentioned place.

Louis Sternitzky expects to raise the framework for an addition to his barn this week.

Louis Knoop hauled a load of telephone poles from Lynn and will build a line from the school house corner to his place.

Albert Quicker has accepted a position in a cheese factory on the Ridge.
