1912 Mar 28 – FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT
Replying to a paragraph in the Dauphin Press of last week, we notice the scribe for that paper takes the trouble to bring our old friend “Billy K” into his remarks and we would like to say that if the scribes wishes “Billy K” to take any notice of his remarks he had better work his phrases a little different. Anyone who knows anything about Fork River and locality knows the said gentleman has done more for the benefit of this part of the country than anyone else. Perhaps the scribe for the “Press” is a stranger, at least we presume so, or these remarks would most certainly have been omitted. We fail to see the “grouse” except his own remarks.
Rumours are about of two marriages in the near future. Good luck. Another two bachelors captured.
Duncan Kennedy tells us Fred Storrar is the mail carrier between Fork River station and post office. We are glad to hear this as Fred deserves to get on.
The Armstrong store will be closed next Friday, March 29th for annual stocktaking. The post office will be opened as usual from 8 a.m. till 9 p.m.
Mr. Johnston, of Winnipegosis, is visiting at the home of his daughter, Mrs. D. Kennedy.
