Last week a reception was tendered at the home of E.L. Curial. Someone burglarized the house and stole the ice cream. Four or five bricks of cream were recovered in an alley after a search, but the rest was eaten or destroyed. It is a serious offense to break into any ones premises after dark and steal. If anyone knows who did this contemptible trick, they should advise the proper authorities. Someone will be caught some day and it will go hard with them.
The firm of Goodrich & Jennings was dissolved Monday morning by mutual consent, George H. Goodrich buying Mrs. Julia S. Jennings’ interest in the business. Mr. Goodrich assumed sole control Monday morning, and will continue the business under the name of “Goodrich, Druggist.”
Mr. Raeder, living a mile north of Cedar, was returning Monday evening from Bethel, with a wagon and double team. The team ran away and he was thrown out. E.C. Burgess noticed the team when they came to his place and a research resulted in finding Mr. Raeder after he had laid in the cold a half hour or so. Dr. Vrooman was called and it was with difficulty he could bring the man to consciousness. Yesterday morning he was worse, the shock, exposure, etc. having affected the kidneys and death came yesterday afternoon.
Anoka citizens to vote yes or no on this question Oct. 28. Practically perfect. Those who have studied it say it is all that could be asked for. Anoka will vote on the proposed new charter Oct. 28. It is the duty of every voter to read the charter and vote intelligently. Don’t take anyone’s opinion. Have one of your own.
