Around Alma

Old country road

February 7, 1889 — We have preaching in our little village three Sundays in each month, the Methodist preach on the first Sunday, the Lutherans the second, and the Baptist the fourth. 

The school at this place had been very small on account of sickness, but since the measles have subsided it has again its original number, and under the skillful training of Prof. Lehew, the school is progressing. 

Miss Frances Ramey departed this life, near this place, on Thursday, Jan. 31, after an illness of only five days. She leaves an aged mother, over 80 years old, to mourn her loss, by whom she will be missed. The deceased was about 40 years old. 

Mr. C.D. Price is doing a thriving business at this place, he is selling at bottom prices, and paying high prices for produce. 

We hear of but one person having gathered any ice yet and that is Mr. A. Short. The question among those that have houses to fill is “will we get any.” 

We miss Dr. T.B. Amiss very much but hope it will not be long before he will return to his old stand where we can have his services when necessary. We need a physician very much at this place, and I do not know who we could get to fill his place.
