Interesting items taken from the flies of "The Graphic," published in Postville, Jan. 30, 1896. Fred Schara is the new employee at the machine shop recently purchased by William Leul. A slight increase in the price of hogs, to $3.75, is encouraging to farmers having porkers to sell. Members of the Lutheran church will name a new pastor next Sunday at a specially called meeting for that purpose. Charley Simonds is the happiest man in Postville, a little daughter having been presented to him by his wife on Tuesday. Revival meetings will be held each evening next week at the Methodist church, with Rev. John Gannon of West Union in charge. Men—look out where you step. Invitations are out for a big leap year dancing party to be held at Turner Hall next Tuesday night. The farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Marston was destroyed by fire on Friday while these people were uptown shopping. Only $400 insurance was carried on the structure. Mrs. J. B. Hart and Mrs. John Waters went to Waukon Thursday where their husbands are appearing in court as witnesses in the lawsuit of Dixon vs. Town of Postville. At the meeting of the Bethel Young People's Christian Union held on last Sunday evening Fred Miller was elected president; Mrs. Jennie Smith, secretary and organist, and Warner Harris, treasurer. This society is in a flourishing condition and is doing good work. G. Plagman is decorating and painting the interior of the Joe Gray home which was damaged by fire Wednesday. The furnace in the new addition became overheated and a blaze result' ed which was soon discovered and extinguished before too much damage resulted. At the meeting of the directors of the Farmers Creamery Company Mon day afternoon, the men resolved to ac cept no remuneration for their serv ices. They i believe in running the affairs of the company in an economical manner—but they shouldn't be too modest about it. Tuesday night while F. W. Roberts was at supper, thieves broke into his home and stole a mantel clock and heirloom jewelry. They escaped on a westbound freight train and at Calmar while they were burglarizing a hard ware store, one of the five was shot and instantly killed. Ed Putnam, whose son was killed by a Milwaukee engine at the crossing north of the business section last sum mer, lost his suit for damages at Wau kon last week, the judge declaring that the boy had no right to be on the tracks. Donkeys, however, seem to have more rights than humans, as on the same day the jury at Waukon awarded the showman Riley of Postville $160.50 damages for the loss of his donkey on the railroad crossing here a year ago.
