A.H. Hazelwood Moved His Store Out on the Highway

     A.H. HAZELWOOD, who has operated a grocery business on the corner of the HAM lot, just west of Huddelston Studio, this week moved his grocery stock out on the Comanche highway, to the Mohon addition, and has a building erected there where he will continue his business.  Mr. HAZELWOOD, it is understood, will fix up a nice suburban store and will cater largely to the tourist trade.  He will doubtless do well there.

Combination Store and Residence is Greatly Improved.

     Mr. And Mrs. J.B. JEFFERY have recently had the interior of their combination store and residence papered and painted and new sleeping porch and bath built, which adds much to the comfort, convenience and good appearance of their place.

Had Near Accident With Trot Line

     While baiting out a trot line in swift water at Ellis ranch where they fished over the Fourth of July, Kenneth FINKELSTINE, son of Mr. And Mrs. Dave FINKELSTINE, washed out into the stream and was at the mercy of the swift water for some ten minutes, hanging on to the trot line meanwhile.  Finally a rope tied on the end of a pole was thrown him and he was dragged ashore, no worse for his experience.
