HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In the June 21, 1917, Mr. Skaggs reported two important events: the first was the delivery by Jess Bussard freight hauling business.
"accompanied with Grover Bussard and Neal Frass...and three egg cases... a ford truck weighing 2600 lbs was delivered; the whole thing was assembled and in the afternoon a trial trip was made to Glazier where the little old thing went right along through sand and all without a 'bobble', the usual load was brought that three horses would ordinarily haul and it took about three hours and a half to make the round trip including loading up. It is some handy proposition as the merchants can bank on more regular trips and quicker ones."
The second important event was the arrival of Dr. and Mrs. C.A. Newland's son description by Skaggs:
"Last Tuesday about one o'clock...was rushed into a scene of gladness over the arrival of a young son that arrived at their place of average size and liveliness. The Doctor since that time has been stepping high with the delight for a "young'n" with his first pair of copper toed boots."
Enjoy the week.
