Line Blocked; May Be Long Delay FENTON - Tuesday of last week a C. & N.W. freight derailed between Burt and Lone Rock and there has been no freight traffic on the line from Burt, through Lone Rock, Fenton and Ringsted and north into Minnesota since that time. The track area was pretty badly torn up. Wednesday was George Washington's birthday, so nobody worked, but by Friday the cars were back on tracks. They were backed into Burt and then run north to Elmore. A Jordan ditcher will have to be moved into the track area, rail officials said, and do its work before any more freight can move, and it might take a month or two. Perhaps they were kidding, but then again maybe they were not. L W. Hauptman Retired, Wesley Resident, Dies WESLEY -Funeral services for Louis W.
