Ashland, Aug. 23. — The Ladies’ Civic Improvement club and their many friends are elated over prospects of completing the new community house, on Park street, the present season, and the outlook is a very promising one too. The clubhouse, in a partially completed state and located right on the main roadway leading to the parks, has been an eyesore for months past, but now there bids to be a renaissance of building operations, with a completion of the improvement on a scale far exceeding former expectations. For some time past it has been rumored that Jesse Winburn would donate $1,000 to the building fund, but prevailing reports indicate that he will not only complete the whole job of construction but will also liberally endow the new institution with equipment throughout, and that too on a plan commensurate with making the club rooms centers of culture and refinement. From a literary point of view there will be books, pictures and periodicals, from a musical standpoint a pipe organ may be installed, and in a utilitarian sense the community center will be equipped with every modern convenience that can be devised. With this vision realized, hope long deferred promises to bear a rich fruition.


Vernon Vawter, John W. Johnson and A. H. Miller returned last night from a several days fishing trip at Diamond Lake.

“It’s the greatest place to camp in the state,” says Mr. Johnson. “We caught trout of all sizes up to eight pounds and they put up a real tussle, too.”

Mr. Johnson was very enthusiastic over the fishing at Diamond Lake and states that it will be even better in the early fall. Although the men were not deer hunting they saw several deer.


Talent Brothers have taken charge of the lunch room in connection with their bakery, have remodeled and rearranged the whole interior of the building, gave it a new dress, added new equipment and have opened an up-to-date restaurant and lunch room and will serve home cooking at all hours.

They of course will continue the bakery, making all kinds of pastries and bread.

The Talents took charge of this bakery a few months ago, have given first class service, best products and are building up a splendid business.
