1911 Aug 24 – Fork River
Mrs. D. Kennedy left for Winnipeg with her sister, Nurse Johnston who is on the sick list. We hope she will soon be all right again and able to attend her good work attending the sick.
Mrs. D. McLean returned home again from a visit to her parents at Selkirk.
The Government dredge is passing through Bailey’s bridge and doing some fast work.
While the hay making the grain is well and promises to be a good crop. The binders are starting and every train brings in binders and twine.
The land is good here and there are several sections of good land within two or three miles waiting for good settlers.
A meeting of Fork River Conservatives to elect officers for the campaign was held on Saturday evening the 12th. The meeting was well attended and very enthusiastic all through. The farmers here cannot see how Reciprocity is going to help them and are in favour of R.L. Borden’s policy. The hollowing officers were elected and a good committee:
President – Wm. King, (re-elected).
Vice – A. Hunt.
Treasurer – D.F. Wilson, (re-elected).
What’s the matter without he C.N.R., it seems to be on the bum lately. A car of stuff shipped prepaid left Dauphin on Aug. 8th, did not get here until the 17th. Who is going to pay the farmers for their lost time? Why it’s rotten.
