From Argosy Files - One Hundred Years Ago, June 1910

Around Town
Grandma Hollowell who had been paying the family of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Elvira Hollowell and other friends here a visit, returned to her home in Anthony on Saturday.

H. H. Shull went over to Milan Friday on business expecting to return on the Santa Fe evening passenger train, but the train being reported several hours late he got Jas. Pringle to bring him home in his motor car.  

John Jackman came over from Douglass on Saturday night to spend the day with home folks, returning Tuesday.  Mrs. Jackman and four smaller children accompanied him on his return and will spend some time visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs William Sherman and other friends there.

For Sale:
Fine young driving horse, gentle and well bred.  Perfectly safe for ladies to drive.  Also have for sale buggy and harness.  Will sell all together or separately.  For further particulars inquire at the newspaper office.

L. R. Wychoff, living eleven miles south and half a mile west of Argonia, was in the city Friday posting bills for a sale of his personal property which is to be held next Tuesday and remembered us with a call.  Mr. Wychoff is making arrangements to move with his family to Colorado in the near future.

Bonds Carried
The school bond election held Tuesday resulted in favor of the proposition to issue $11,000 bonds for the purpose of erecting a new school building by an almost unanimous vote.  The total number of votes cast were 108 of which 97 were for the bonds and 10 against.  This means that the district will have a school building that will be a credit to the enterprise and intelligence of our people and one of which they will feel proud.  Let everybody sing!
