Today in the Dauphin Herald – Jul 27 – 1911

1911 Jul 27 – Fork River

Sam Bailey and Mr. and Mrs. N. Johnston were visitors to the Winnipeg exhibition last week.
A social evening was spent at Mr. and Mrs. C.E. Bailey’s in honour of Miss Finch, a former school teacher of this district, who is visiting here. An interesting programme of songs and recitations was given by Mrs. Duncan Kennedy, Miss Finch, Miss Hill and Mr. Malley. A very enjoyable evening was spent by all present.
What’s the matter with the Press. We look over it week after week for news and all it contains in some “caw” from a demented “Jackass”, otherwise known as a “Jackdaw”. Column after column of abuse about Glen Campbell and J.G. Harvey, the members who the people have chosen to represent them. It is disgusting.
D.F. Wilson, our local Galloway breeder, was a visitor to the Winnipeg fair. He was there for the purpose of getting a Galloway bull brought from Ontario, and shown at the fair.
N. Little and daughter, Grace, have returned from the Winnipeg exhibition and report a pleasant time. Chief among the other attractions they saw was the flying machine.
Mr. Cameron and niece of Neepawa, were visiting at the home of A. Cameron of Mowat, last week.
Messrs. Corbet and McKee are busy putting a bridge over the Fork River at Mr. Coultas, which, when completed will fill a long felt want.
