Today in the Dauphin Herald – Jul 17– 1913

1913 Jul 17 – Fork River

Mr. Munson of the Massey-Harris Agency, returned to Winnipeg after having spent a week here on business for the company.
D.F. Wilson has returned from taking in the Winnipeg exhibition. He says the show was passable.
F.B. Lacey returned from a trip south on business.
Me. Vineing, of Australia, who spent a few days with Mr. Venables has left for Winnipeg.
“Say, Mike, can ye tell us what that anchor-like instrument with handles that was unloaded on the platform is?” “Well. Pat, I believe its a municipal tooth pick; its to accompany those two grading plows that were bought three years ago and have been at rest up not in the scrub for two years; no one uses them.” “Well, Mike, that’s the outcome of so many attending municipal conventions; then a banquet, then a large head and along comes pipes and other useless tools instead of getting a car of good tamarack planks to make culverts to take off the surplus water. Good-day.”
Jack McLean took a few days off to attend the parade on the 12th at Brandon.

1913 Jul 17 – Fork River

Mrs. D.F. Wilson is spending the week with friends at Dauphin.
Vivian Hafenbrak has returned from a business trip to Dauphin.
Fred King is off on a short vacation from a business trip to Dauphin.
John Stark and Peter Ellis, of Kamsack, are spending a few days renewing acquaintances.
The 12th of July was very wet, rain falling all day and the Orangemen’s picnic was postponed till the roads dry up some. Several of our Winnipegosis friends and their ladies came. One of the drawing cards was the fishermen’s parade with the big drum in the lead. It was a swell affair, no one hurt. If there was any objection it was on the drum’s part. We trust our municipal fathers will see fit to extend our sidewalks on both sides of Main Street.
