ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Kalona

Next Saturday night, the Kalona Cornet Band will open the concert season with a festival and concert. The boys are making a great effort to raise funds to carry them through the season and our people should give them liberal support.

The little daughter of Dow Figgins has been seriously ill with appendicitis. She is reported to be improving.

Mrs. Minnie White, wife of Charles White, of Wellman, was taken before the commissioners of insanity at the clerk’s office Thursday evening and pronounced a fit subject for the asylum. She was taken to Mount Pleasant Friday morning, accompanied by her husband and Mrs. John Teeter.

Mrs. White has been broken down nervously for about a year and it is thought hospital treatment will benefit her. She is 30 years of age and is the mother of six children. The youngest is 2 years old.

Johnny Baker was taken from Washington last Friday back to the reform school at Eldon, from which he was paroled last fall. It seems a pity that some boys must have their liberty curtailed in order that they may become peaceable citizens, but such is human nature. It is to be hoped that this second dose of restraint will prove of a more lasting benefit than the first.

Chris Roup is busy building new fences and opening a road from his place west to the road passing the Lincoln school house. This is to be a public road, even if it does go through the middle of the section, and will make it more convenient for Mr. Roup’s children to get to school. This task has several times been undertaken by different persons, but never accomplished until now. This will undoubtedly cost Mr. Roup about $300, and it shows that he is willing to sacrifice something for the education of his children.

J. W. Southwick’s young folks and Noah Kauffman’s young folks were Sunday visitors at Noah Yoder’s at Sharon Center.

The Shalla Telephone Company met Monday night with the following line-up of officers: James Shalla, president; Ed. Shalla, secretary; John Shalla, treasurer; Anton, and Jim Tobin and Frank Lintz, directors.
