Airmen take picture of county fair

When those airmen were flying over the Huron County Fair grounds early last month they took some photographs of the scene that stretched out before them.

Two photographs have just been received by Scy. Frank Jones of the Fair Board and they are attracting a great deal of attention. The race track looks about the size of an auto tire, and little specs are motor cars or pedestrians. Along the track is a little blur which evidently was a horse race. Over at one side is a thousand or so automobiles, looking like neatly piled cord wood. Tents are dotted about. And in the distant stretches field and woodlawn and gently undulating country — a beautiful picture. One can almost see President Carley Coit darting about down by the grand stand.


Mrs. Almira Williams is death’s victim

Mrs. Almira Williams passed away at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at her home, No. 5 Jackson St. She was the daughter of John E. and Mary Anne Morse, and was born in the west part of Peru township May 11, 1843.

A little later her parents moved to a farm near Peru Center, where she lived until her marriage, which took place May 30, 1868, to Lucas M. Williams, also of Peru township.

Most of her married life was spent in Ohio, though for a short time she with her husband lived in the states of New York, Iowa and Kansas.

Returning to Norwalk, they resided here for a number of years, then for a time in Napoleon, Van Wert and Clyde, returning to Norwalk in 1909, when they purchased the house at No. 5 Jackson Street, where death occurred.


L.S. Willis becomes head of Globe Store

L.S. Willis, a Norwalk man, manager of the Globe grocery at Tiffin, has been transferred to the management of the Norwalk store. He succeeds B.H. Street, who will be transferred to another city.

Mr. Willis was formerly identified with the local Globe Store and was transferred to Sandusky. His many friends will welcome him back to the city.


Entertains at Norwalk Country Club

A charming affair of the week took place at the Norwalk Country Club last evening when Mrs. John H. Cox of the Norwalk Vault Co. entertained the members of the Huron County Undertakers Assn. and their wives.

At 6:30 o’clock a beautifully appointed dinner was served. Baskets of brilliantly colored flowers decorated the table. Covers were arranged for forty guests. Following the dinner a short business session was called by the President, Mr. Wm. Pease of Wakeman, after which the evening was spent socially. In one month the association will be entertained at Wakeman.
