Harvey Fox Dead: Harvey H. Fox, formerly a citizen of Washburn, but for some time a business man of Markham, Okla., died Aug 29, in a hospital in Oklahoma City, of peritonitis.
Harve, as he was familiarly known in the Horner locality south of Cassville where he was born and reared, was 37 years old, and since locating at Markham when that town was started had become one of its prominent and enterprising business men. At the time of his death he was operating a general machine shop and had built a number of residences for rental purposes.
He was a member of the Moose Lodge of Markham and the funeral was conducted by that order.
He left a widow and one child, Oreta, age 12 years. He was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. James Fox of Washburn, and a nephew of A.G. and E. L. Henbest, Mrs. Jas. Waddell and Mrs. Clay Stubblefield.
Dummit - Randall: Elvin Dummit and Miss Frances Randall of Columbus, Kan., were married Saturday night, Oct 9. The wedding took place at Carthage, Rev. Hargrove performing the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Dummit will keep house on Grant street, Carthage. Mr. Dummit is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Dummit of Monett. He is employed at the Frisco meat market at Carthage - Monett Times
Pleads Guilty: Sheriff Brixey took John Gorman, the young man who stole J.D. Dummit's team of horses and buggy to Monett, Saturday for his preliminary hearing.
The hearing was held before justice of the peace O'Dwyer. A plea of guilty was entered and Gorman brought back to the county jail to await the action of the circuit court.
