Smith Baby Hurt
Sunday evening about 6 o’clock at the home of Harve Phelps, little Miss Iona Dale Smith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Smith and grandchild of Mr. and Mrs. Harve Phelps, received a very painful injury on the side of her head by a stone thrown by another child with whom she was playing.

For City Clerk
Dr. M. A. Linch asks your support of himself for re-election as City Clerk upon the record of efficiency he has made while in office.
Dr. Linch has been City Clerk some eight years and knows thoroughly every item necessary to the proper keeping of the town. In addition to this work the clerk has charge of the water bookkeeping, which is quite tedious and important. In this work as in the other department, Dr. Linch has demonstrated his efficiency. The Council is always readily furnished with whatever data it needs by the Clerk.
