ytAKS BY MICHAEL L. BLAKE Apparently Frank Kelley's statement last week about the unsafe condition of the Calliope bridge got the local citizens quite upset. The Independent shows this in an article pub* Hshed July 26,1883: "A prominent business man of Calliope called in to remark, and emphatically* too, that the action of the Commercial, charging that the Calliope bridge is unsafe, is working an injury to the trade of the whole corporation. He says that one of his customers informed him that many more would have been in town to trade v that day but they were afraid that the Commercial 9 s statement might be true. The Calliope bridge is safe for travel, and the only danger to be anticipated is that the ice breaks may give way in the spring. It is strange that the business men of this town, remarked the business man, should patronize an institution which is endeavoring to drive trade away from them," * * * Meanwhile, work begins on the new bridge to South Dakota at Hawarden. Frank Kelley of the Commercial describes the bridge in the following item: "Hawarden Bridge -- Seven car loads of material for the new Hawarden bridge arrived Monday evening, and the well- known bridge builder, N. Desparois, is hard at work on the same with a big gang of men. The bridge is to be located just south of the Northwestern railroad bridge, directly west of Samuel Heald's residence, and will be in every respect the most solid structure that spans the Big Sioux river. Its cost when completed will be between $4,000 and $5,000. With good solid piers and extra strong iron works, life and property will be absolutely safe on its platform. The building of this bridge is a great thing for warden. It shows the pluck and grit of her people; it shows that we appreciate the farmers* trade of Dakota. It shows that we will provide them with a bridge that will at all times be safe and secure, and that places them forever in direct communication with the best market in the northwest. Hawarden has done a good thing for herself and a good thing for Dakota farmers. Real estate on both sides of the river will be advanced fully 25 per cent by the building of this bridge. In six weeks time all the Dakota trade will be coming across the new Hawarden bridge and we will be ready for it with grain buyers, hog buyers, banks, hotels, newspapers, the biggest stores and the best men to deal with in the world. Hawarden 1 s corporation extends two miles up and down the valley and you can have the freedom of the entire length and breadth of it. Come and see us," "And still the Callipe bridge needs repairing/ 1 THE INDEPENDENT With summer coming there will soon be complaints of too much heat. Bro. Stone must have disliked the heat, too* However, he shows that we are never satisfied with these items from "Pencilings," July 12, 1883: "The Commercial man is after Fred Stone's scalp. Fred had just as soon be baldheaded this weather as not." "A Chinaman's declaration about the weather would be: Hotee likee hellee just the samee! And his head would be level, too." "It hasn't slipped your memory, has it, that old man winter, with his snow, blow, frozen toes and woe will soon be here again?" "Upon mature deliberation, MAPES NURSING HOME THE INDEPENDENT, Thursday, May 1, 1963 Mrs. several William Kahl visited residents this past Mrs. Ann Pefferman of Akron visited her father, Fred Osterbuhr.
