The Farmers Mutual Telephone central which is located in Marvin GRIFFIN's residence will be moved in several weeks to the rooms over HOWLETT's hardware store. Irving STEWART has been engaged by the directors to have charge of the central in the new location. When installed in the new quarters a day and night and all day Sunday service will be given to the patrons.

Mr. STEWART will have a sale and move to town from his farm a half mile north of here. He will live in the rooms where the central is located. Mr. STEWART is a genial, good fellow who will make a fine "hello" girl.

Marvin GRIFFIN is the son of Lewis Lane & Emily nee BRADLEY GRIFFIN. Marvin married Florence WINCHELL, dau of Jacob J. & Sarah nee LANE WINCHELL.
