LITTLE INTEREST IN U.S. PAPERS: August Donath, superintendent of documents in the government printing office, last night, before the District of Columbia Library Association, deplored the little interest taken in United States papers by some educational institutions, and spoke of the need of new methods of distribution. Robert A. Church, of the Navy Department, spoke on “Ship Libraries of the United States Navy.” Alton P. Tisdel, Dr. Henry J. Harris, George F. Bowerman, and Willard O. Waters also spoke. (Washington Post, January 16, 1913)

C.A. McGrew came down from Wagner Butte, where he has a quartz came, recently, and he is showing some samples of ore that look pretty good. There shows up quite a sprinkling of tulurian and other metals, while the assay of some pieces shows as high as $300 a ton. (Ashland Tidings, February 20, 1913)

Clarion — The biggest real estate deal ever made in the history of Wright county was made last week when W.C. Tyrrell and his son exchanged farms. The son owned a large farm near Latimer and the father, well known throughout the county and state, owned a farm of nearly 2,000 acres two miles south of Belmont [sic]. They traded farms, the value of the latter farm near Belmond being placed at $80,000. (Correctionville News, February 6, 1913)
