The City Meat Market has filled its ice house Friday and Saturday with 8 ½” ice. Fifty-five tons were stored away in the house in the rear of the meat shop. Mr. Weir says “This will supply our trade until sometime in July, after which we will ship from Paola another carload.” (Note: The ruins of this ice house are presumably those located on the bluff on the south side of Rabbit Creek, about 1/8th mile west of Metcalf.) The obituary of Phillip F. Latimer is published. Mr. Latimer was one of the early settlers in Louisburg, having arrived in 1864. Miss Loveday Whitaker hosted a U. T. Club meeting Fri day evening.
