Bulletin Office in New Home

The Bulletin office is now located in its new home in the back part of the original building used for the office.

The job of moving machinery weight from four to six ton is no small snap, and the re-arranging all other machinery, equipment, paper stock, etc. was worse yet.

The main entrance to the Bulletin office is now on the side street and after a few days we hope to have things in working order again.

What’s Left Behind

A freak of the cyclone was discovered Sunday by searchers in mutilated woods 3 miles northeast of El Paso, where a brand new record enclosed in its envelope and in perfect condition and several new shirts, some still bearing their price tags, were found. The shirts and records were evidently from the stock of a store wrecked by the cyclone and had traveled many miles, possibly from Randolph, MN.

Plans for Main Street

According to an informational handout presented at the informational session, tentative plans call for resurfacing Main Street with asphalt, replacing streetlights, sidewalks, and the water main and laterals. In addition, instead of rainwater running off the street surface, a storm sewer would be built.
