The Chautauqua this season, as expressed by nearly everybody, has been the most uniformly good throughout any we have ever had. The lectures were all of high order, instructive, patriotic, and inspirational. The entertainers, Cavany and Jess Pugh, were individually liked. The play on Saturday night, “Nothing But the Truth” was excellent. And, financially, the local committee came out in good shape.
Work was begun on Monday on the new front for the Propp and Curtis auto sales room next door to the Record office.
The test on the Piper 80 in the west half of the southwest quarter of section 16-21-4 came in this morning and is flowing over the top.

Huenergardt, John Gardner and John Propp, with some Clay Center parties — own the eighth royalty on the lease.
Walter Seely is driving a new Dodge car.
