Our townsman, Geo. Elhard, has no difficulty these days in stepping over our highest snow banks. He makes them all on "high", too, and wears a smile from ear to ear. This seemed unusual and we thought there must be some good reason. We sent Scoop on the job and in a few hours discovered that the stork arrived at his home Monday leaving a big bouncing baby boy. All concerned are reported doing nicely. We're waiting for that cigar, George.

2 MAR 1917 - Gackle's New Butcher
*
Just before going to press the city editor rushes into the office with a very interesting piece of news concerning the arrival Thursday, March 1st, of a new butcher at the Joe Frey market, who, though yet a stranger, is bound to figure strongly in the great success of this enterprise. As the new fellow only weighs nine pounds it will be some time before he will be able to take an active part in the business.

Isaac Halberg is one of the happiest men in the world today. Last fall he reaped a fortune from his flax crop and not many days ago he received unexpectedly a check from the company for $125.00, his share of the dividends regulated by the adoption of the profit sharing plan. But the climax of all blessings occurred on Washington's birthday anniversary, Feb. 22, when the stork made a visit to the Halberg home and left a little bunch of femininity. This is reason enough why Isaac would be subject to gout by the arrival of spring. [See 9 Mar 1917, parents should be J. W. Isaacs]

We got the name of Isaac Halberg mixed with that of J. W. Isaacs in our announcement of a birth at the home of the former in last week's paper. It should have read a girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Isaacs on Feb. 22nd. J. W. is about the proudest daddy in Gackle and a true patriot.

Our local depot agent A. G. Wilk is anything but grouchy or unpleasant now days. His smile is like that of a man who is suddenly informed that a friend of his has just wired him a fortune of $1,000,000. No doubt to reason for his unusual pleasant countenance would equal a $1,000,000 fortune or more, when we tell you he is papa to a fine looking eight and one half pound baby girl, born to him and his better half Tuesday evening. Everybody is reported doing fine.

4 MAY 1917

According to official reports a new blacksmith has been added to the force of workmen now employed by Fred Weisfenning. Mr. Weisfenning now has four blacksmiths, as the latest arrived at the Weisfenning home Monday morning and was reported to be a healthy aspicant to the anvil force. Where's the cigar, Fred?
