Town and Country Notes
Gathered Here and There and Cut Short to
Fit the Minds of Busy Readers.
Sam Hunter was in from south-
east of town yesterday.
James Wolfe* was in from
southwest of town Saturday on
J. W. KeHey, of Higgin?, was
in town Tuesday shaking hands
with his old friends.
W. H. Bates living south of
town was miDgling among our
enthusiastic aggreg a t i o n of
commercial hustlers yesterdav.
Born—To Mr. and Mrs. A. E.
Weaver, seutheast of town, Tues-
day^, Feb. 2, a pair of pretty twin
girjs. Fver^ body wellx- pleased
and doing fine.
Griff Jones a practical miller
and mil I-light is here from Kan-
sas City, Mo., arranging to haove
iiis family here and is helping
with the organization of our
County Assessor W. L. Owen
donned his "glad rags" Tuesday
and left for Higgins where he will
tart the good work going on a
fesh batch of assessor's dope.
As-an ^sessor W. L. is there
"with the g«ods."
Carl Anderson, of Higgins,
came over to oifr old town yester-
day and loaded up one of the
barber chairs at the Bobo barber
shop and returned after dinner.
Carl is going to branch out in
business -for himself. He is a
od and spciable boy aud should
la well. Success to the new
venture in lii^ "own home town."
What has become of the' ' free
will offering" toward better
i oads north of the fridge? Are
v* going to let such a good reso-
lation that smarted some
•ve ks ago g to th* bow-bows, or
ire we as a baud of good citizens
:-ot tired and quit? The strip of
i oad north of the bridge needs
juite a bi£ of work to make it iD
half way condition. - One days
•vork a week, when one could
spare the time, would be worth
lots to the town besides a . con-
venience to auto drivers as well
as the farmers.
Dame rumor has it that in a
playful way that some of the
boys hf-ve resorted to some of the
oJd time school day pranks
such as ;chtnging buggy wheels,
hiding them, etc., just for the fun
that it creates. It lias in times
made ^reat amusement for the
onlookers, but on the other hand,
the one the joke was worked on
some times proved serious. Lime
Light has a warm Spot in its
wishbone for the younger gene
ation and doesn't think that Lip-
scomb has any of those "horrid
mean boys" -vho do things to
just be doing.
■'Th ie'g nothing to it" from
the appearances of the under
current that ebbs and flows in
these parts the r ossibi litre*- are
t' at-the much prized mill proje t
that, has been the principal topic
up for discussion among the
comon town folk for the past two
months will prove a reality.
Lipseornb became mere active in
regard to the mill proposition the
past week than they have been in
the past two months, it is an
evident fact that a mill for Lip-
scomb would be a proper business
proposition, situated as it would
be, in the very heart of the most
prolific and best wheat belt there
is in the North Panhandle. With
the coming of a flour mill would
also come a home market for the
greater portion of th wheat yield
iv this"neck 'o the woods" which
in itself alone would be saving
many hundred dollars a year to
the farmers east, north and west
of us in freight hauling saying
nothing of the convenience and
great economy in the purchasing
price of flour, shorts, bran and
other chop feeds. Yep, its look-
ing bloomin' good for a mill be
ing installed in this oht town of
ours. Keep her moving along
gentlemen—the next thing we
| know—well, we'll be grinding the
j golden grain.
