Not to be out done by the years to follow, the year of 1870 had its share of the usual complainers. However, perhaps their plight for attention, in regard to their gripes was a justified one. The problem at hand was a prevalant one in many parts of the U. S. during this age. It seems that many Cherokee residents were dissatisfied with "he mail service and they felt that by making their comments openly perhaps something could be don,e about the situtation. Mail from the east arrived on a tri-weekly basis, providing oads and weather were favoraBle. Mail coming from the west '-/as •upposed to come into the thriving metropolis every day. Free- 5enned reporters of that time interpreted the uncertainty of the postal servke, from that direction, by saying "there's a-screw loose n Sioux City since there's not always a way of getting the material to the depot at this locality. Recommendations were made to have one person in charge of this job. This may have been a satisfactory solution to the problem since it was not mentioned in follow-up issues.of the widely-read publication. Royer Firm Is One Of Oldest 0. A. Royer was Horn in Illinois but came to Cherokee County at the age of six 1 monfiis, his parents making Aurelia their home. He was schooled "there, graduating from the Aurelia Higti Pr'iool and then attending a watch-making and engraving school from 1901 to 1903. In 1909 he e.iteicd the Omaha I Optometry Institute of Tar-box &• Gordon. For many years lie operated a store in Aurelia prior to entering .flic field in Cherokee. The original location of this establishment was where Mallory's Drug Store now stands. The business was moved in 1939, when Mr. Royer bought out the Faye Dickinson store — or the present location — on West Main Street. Mr. Royer's son Don, came into the firm in 1953, having specialized in stonework and diamonds. The partnership then became known as. Royer £ Son, Jewelers, with 0. A. Royer combining his optomclry profession with the jewelry trade over the year. "Little Brown Jug" "The question arises, do all the jugs that our citizens Carry really contain magic water? Is it not barely possible that the sudden popularity of brown jugs may be due in part to something more spiritual than magnetic water?" Conards Cafe Opened In 1944 Harlcn E .Cenard has operated Canard's Cafe since July 1942, when he and Jerry Conard bought ;he business from John Collister. In April, 1955 Harlen took over the entire operation of the cafe and :avern.

Six, years later his brother; P. O. McWilliams, Sr., took over its ownership and operation. He too had worked in the Schuster Drugstore. Ten years, ago P. O.
