Due to the heavy, beating rains,
much of the cotton of this sec-
tion will have to be replanted.
The corn and potatoes are doing
fairly well, but some of the corn
jwill have to be replanted. The re-
cent rains were beneficial to a
certain extent, but many of the
fields of this section were badly
Adolf Shumbera, well-known to-
mato grower of this section, tells
us that the tomato plants recently
transferred to the open fields,
stood the recent heavy rains and
hail fairly well, and the damage
in the aggregate is nominal. He
reports some of his plants are
Walter J. Black of the Brasher

Miss Willyne Rabb, popular
Weimar girl, who is engaged in
teaching in the Eagle Lake pub-
lic schools, has been at home
lately, suffering with a case of
mumps and measles.
Dr. Friench Simpson, native of
Columbus, and his wife have de-
cided to locate in Hallettsville for
the practice of his profession. He
has been in government service
out in "the golden west" for a
number of years. His Colorado
county relatives and friends will
welcome his return to "the old
home stamping grounds.

It rained here for four days. I

The poultry "business of this
section is growing by leaps and
bounds, as will be noted by any-
one traversing the country area
surrounding Weimar. The "fever"
has even invaded the town.
Wherever you go, you will see
flocks of hundreds of baby chicks,
while in many instances the lay-
ing flocks of many of the farm-
ers will run into the hundreds,
sometime more than 1,000 in one
flock. Hatcheries throughout this
section are "thicker than fleas,"
yet all are doing a good business,
according to reports, and some
of them are unable to keep up
with the orders. Between cattle
and poultry, this section will win
out, war or no war, and there is
a bright future in the trucking
industry, also, which includes to-
matoes, cucumbers, onions, pea-
nuts and many others.
Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Mensik of

Our statement of last week

be inducted into the army this

ter put me in a certain class. I
did not have to take any more ex-
aminations. I was called to the
orderly room for an interview.
They merely asked me a few
questions and decided to give me
a position as a portrait photo-
grapher. I might do a little com-
mercial work, too, but I under-
stand most of my work will be
snapping the bulb. All the boys
that "go across" will have to have
a sort of passport. Also officers
and big shots want photos made, Mrs. L. A. Turner spent seve-

drill, etc. I have no idea where I
will be sent. As you know military
secrecy prevents that.
This camp is all right, but th#
surrounding country is punk. I'll
be glad when I am transferred.
The food is getting better. We
have a good variety of foods. It
was explained to us that each
meal contains 200 calories. That
makes 600 for three meals, enough
to keep you in good condition. We
get all the milk and coffee we
want. We have green vegetables
and cooked. We get peaches, ice
cream, strawberry and black-
berry pie, celery, asparagus tips,
and a little of almost everything.
We even get chicken sometime.
Well, be good, and take care of
yourself and write me.

Otha Reed, who recently was
united in marriage to Miss Olivia
Rabel, of this city, by govern-
ment orders was transferred Sat-
urday from Fort Sam Houston to
a training camp in Wyoming.
The city election last week re-
sulted in the return to office of
Mayor Henry J. Laas and Al-
dermen Grady Shaver and Jos. S.
Rypple—a move that was made
unanimous by the voters of the
community. If we mistake not,
this will be Mayor Laas' seventh
term of office. Mr. Laas has made
a most efficient and painstaking
official throughout his entire ca-
reer. A great per cent of the ma-
jor improvements in Weimar are
due to his indefatigable efforts
and persistency. He has one pet
project that he hopes to put over
ere he retires from office, and
that is to have the streets of
Weimar asphalted—they are al-
ready graveled and sandstoned to
a great extent. We are certainly
hopeful he will be able to put over
this project, for it is one that is
sorely needed here.
Word has been received here
that Ray Brooks Rheinhardt, of
Luling, former Weimar youth, has
returned from California where he
has been at work in one of the
large airplane plants, and will
either seek employment in a Tex-
as plant or enlist in the air ser-
vice of his country.
Louis Kubesch, Weimar youth,
who has been in New York City
for quite awhile, is home for a
few days visit, and expects to be
called into army service within
the next few days. The rigid cli-
mate of the big city evidently did
not agree with Louis, as he lost
twenty-five pounds while away.
Mr. ana Mrs. Frank Schovajsa
and children, former residents of
the New Bielau community, now
residing in Houston where Mr.
Schovajsa is engaged in carpenter
work, were viisting briefly with
relatives and friends in this sec-
tion last week-end. Frank reports
plenty of work in his line.
This county is furnishing that
number, according to report. With
the departure Wednesday of these
youths there are many sad homes
in this area. Of those taken from
this section are included: George
Frank Berger, Henry John Do-
becka, Willie Frank Hudec, Emil
James Dusek, Alfred T. Wick,
Eugene Frank Polk, Leon Joe

Weimar councilmen have re-
cently made a deal that shouid
prove of interest to all its peo-
ple. The old "boneyard" located
on an acre of land purchased
many years ago from the
Hancock estate, on which all
trash from the city has been
dumped for lo, these many years,
has finally become so filled that
it was overflowing. Therefore,
the city made a deal with L. D.
Allen and wife, owners of ad-
joining property, to sell the city
2 7-10 acres 500 yards further
north, for $150, and take the
original one acre "boneyard" lanJ
in the trade. It is the opinion of
all that the city has made an ad-
