I am frequently asked if it is true that our Public Schools are not going to commence until October.
I wish to say in answer to the public that it is the present purpose of the school board to have school begin on the first Monday in September, which this year comes on the 7th day. This plan will be carried out unless there is a new batch of Scarlet Fever cases in which case other arrangements may be made.

WILL HAVE A CREAMERY
A.L. McCray who has been running the creamery at Bright’s for several years has decided to move his business and buildings into the village. Being located as he has been Mr. McCray has been to considerable extra expense and inconvenience in marketing his butter and otherwise which he thinks he can do away with by moving to town. It will cost him some to move, but the business men have wisely contributed $100.00 to him to help defray these expenses, realizing that a resident creamery will help and also aid the farmers who live in the surrounding territory and have cows. Heretofore farmers living north and west of Mazeppa have had to go to more distant towns to find a market for their cream or milk. After the change is made they can market it at home. And it will mean but little if any more inconvenient for those living south of here, as although their hauls may be a little further, they can do their village trading at the same time. Mr. McCray expects to begin moving about the first of next month.
