John Meyers, a farmer living two
tad a half miles east of Billings was
fatally injured in a runaway last
Thursday and died at his home at

failed to rain and fill a number of dry
cisterns in the east part of town. It
was necessary that these water holders
contain adequate a qua to supply the
essential needs of wash day or hubby
would have to rise early in the chilly
morn and solemnly 1111 those numerous
tubs, and again,, the cisterns were
warping out of shape. The necessity
brought forth thought and action.
The pipe line which ran from the big
well in the south east part of town to
the old mill was tapped, a long
hose run from the pipe to the cistern,
and the wind mill started pumping.
Several cisterns were tilled by this
clever method. Guy Morgan had the

A problem has been circulating and
worrying many frail minds around
Garber the last four,days. Here it is;
From reliable source, which is not
necessary iu things of this nature, it
is reported I hat on Sunday, February
12th, 1911, at 3: p. m. a wedding is to
take place. The story that reaches us
has it that the bride to be lives in Gar-
ber and the groom to be lives in a
radius of ten miles of this town. Also
that the lady is not keeping company
at present; that the lady and gentle-
tlernan uever kept company with each
other; and that Garber people will all
be surprised. We don't believe that.
