Wm. and J.M. Mieras and Frank Baker were at Alton Saturday to see the ballgame.
Ed Preston of Sioux City was here Sunday. He is a nephew to J.E. Mieras.
Ralph Mieras, while cutting some brush the other day, had the misfortune to cut an ugly gash in his right leg. Which required the doctor’s assistance and several stitches.
Mieras and DeJong, managers of the telephone exchange, informed us that some persons tangled the telephone lines in several places east of town, causing a great deal inconvenience to the service. They say, that should this happen again, they will try to find out who the miscreants are and prosecute them to the full extent of the law.

Mrs. H.S. Hamilton of Sioux City is here for a couple of weeks visit at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Mieras.
Miss Katherine Kuhl, of Sioux Center, is visiting in town for a few days.
Mieras and DeJong are negotiating for a purchase of a storage battery in the electric light plant so that by charging it they will be able to furnish current when engine and dynamo are not running. Maurice will soon have one of the most up-to-date plants in this part of the state.
In last week’s issue we made mention of someone of tangling the telephone wires. Mieras and DeJong, the managers, found out Saturday who the guilty one was and gave him his choice of settling for $10 or going to law about it. He promptly decided to part with the cash. This should be a lesson to others also who are inclined to overstep their privileges.
