S\ ' F E J H K U A K Y 2 MASON CITY «M)BE-GA/ETTK Name of Avery With History Man Now Living in Belmond*" Was First White Child r Born in County. Is Linked of Hancock [ GOODELL, Feh. 2-1 .--Goodell and vicinity were honored when Garner named its new theater "Avery." The name has historical significance in this territory as it is the name of the first white settler in. Hancock county. The old Avery homestead is about three miles east and one mile north of Goodell, in Avery township. On Sept. 9, 1854, Mr. and Mrs. Anson Avery came to Hancock county to make it their home. In the spring of 1885 he planted the first grain crop ever attempted in Hancock county. Mrs. Avery was the first · whito woman to walk on Hancock county soil. In the fall of 1354. Mr. Avery cut enough grass with a scythe to build a straw shed in. which to winter his stock. He also cut enough timber to build a house 10x18 feet to shelter himself, wife and family. Died at Age of BO. In 1847 Anson Avery was united ' in. marriage to Miss Lovina Philo. V Mrs. Avery lived in Hancock covm- ) ty for 67 years and died March 24. \ 1021, at the age of 90. Anson Avery ! was born in New York state Oct. ,'-\ 2, 1823. and died Nov. 22, 1903 at V the age of 80. Six children were born to Mr. and y Mrs. Avery, two of these were born M before the family moved to their ' .pioneer home in this county. Four } children were born on the old home, stead. They arc George Avery, now I in Belmond, who was the first ' white child born in Hancock county, \ Mrs. Mary Schmalle of Garner. '» Lewis Avery of Goodell, Charles. ( who died in infancy. Layton was { horn before the family moved here and died a number of years ago. j Mrs. M. L. Fuller was born in ' Michigan and now lives in Tulsa, i Okla. ' - Still Belongs to Avery. I j The old homestead is yet the .^'property of an A very, belonging 1 to A'L. E. · Avery. His son, Anson, great I (grandson of the original Anson Av- frery, lives on it. In October, 18;"vl. j George Nelson and family settled fin Hancock county not far from the lAvery homestead. \ The following fall Mr. Avery and uMr. Nelson, each with an ox team, Jtmado a trip to Dubuttue to procure \,sugar, salt, coffee, flour, clothing if and other, provisions for the winter ; 'season. On this trip they encoun- 'i^tered a herd of elk in the northwest Aj/rner of Franklin county, which Ifliiey conservatively estimated to be 500 in number. fork Speeded Up in i'j Minnesota to Finish Apportionment Plans E ST. PAUL. Feb. 24. OVI--In an e f f o r t to avoid the jam of the last weeks of the legislative session committees on apportionment in 5 both house and senate this week ivill speed up the task of- remaking |S«Iinnesota's congressional map to provide nine districts instead of ten. "It is a matter of taking the least by the horns," is the way Chairman Iver G. Iverson of Houston expressed the necessity of get- committee action soon. "We will have to agree on a plan in com- ttee quickly because many changes and a great deal of debate can be expected when the issue reaches the floor of both houses." The difficulty to date in getting action on reapportionment is that nearly every one of the 198 snnnt.ors and representatives have individual ideas of the changes to be made. A working plan has been adopted by the senate committee which would create two. districts out of Henncpin and Anoka counties with district boundary lines between these two to he drawn later, and with tho fourth district,' Ramsey county, to remain the same. The committee will meet this week to seek an agreement on redistricting. RACKET FAILS A short-lived racket has put 18-year-old Mildred 'L it r b y Wright, Baltic Creek, Mich, jrun girl into jail.
