MEDIA MEANDERINGS: The congregational dinner was held at the U.P. Church with Chas. Pogue re-elected as trustee and Dan Leinbach and Fred Ross elected to fill vacancies caused by removals. Mrs. Wilcox who has been sick for some time, died Wednesday p.m. She was the widow of Samuel Wilcox. The children who survive are Mrs. Barry, Fred of Stronghurst, Garney of Watertown and Percey of Media...Interment was in the South Prairie Cemetery. Mr. George Drain and family have moved in with his parents in town. Mr. Deboski Drain will continue to farm the same land this year with the exception of the academy land, which will be worked by Lewis Mason, who has now moved to town. Miss Dulcie Stewart will be matron of an orphan home in Florida
LOMAX LINGERINGS: The doctors in town are kept busy day and night with measles and pneumonia raging. The Herald office will work full force day and night getting out their booster paper. The Town Co. now has seven stenographers and business is going fine. Everything looks prosperous. Strangers are coming and buying and going away well satisfied with the proposition. (This refers to Love's New City, a real estate venture promoted by Mr. Love from Keokuk, Iowa. He intended to make Lomax an industrial mecca.) New City will soon have a milliner; now, ladies give her a chance to fit you out with an Easter bonnet.
