This was sent to the Iowa Palo Alto email list. I am sending it to the Tama list for all of those who don't read the Palo Alto email.

HAWKEYE STATE NEWS
- Frank Zmolok of Traer, a native of Bohemia, who came to America before the
beginning of the world war, but whose family still remain in the native
country, this week purchased a bill of groceries from one of the Traer
dealers and started the same on its way to the family in Bohemia. The
shipment consists of five pairs of shoes, a quantity of flour, sugar, coffee
and rice. Transportation charges will amount to nearly twice the purchase of
the flour and sugar.
- Because Mrs. Emma Fahrenkrug of Gladbrook was shown to have been too busy
washing her two pet poodles to do the family washing, Ernest G. Fahrenkrug
was granted a decree of divorce at the May term of the Tama county district
