Juliaetta--A baby girl, their first born, came to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Willard Kite last Saturday [July 27].


Word has been received in Moscow announcing the marriage of Miss Viola Fleeke, of Butte, Mont., and Sergeant Arthur R. Major, of Lolo, Mont., but who is now stationed at Camp Lewis. Miss Fluke [sic] attended the U. of I. and was graduated in 1916. Sergeant Major attended the U. of M.


Frank Sweeney, well-known farmer of Uniontown, was killed yesterday morning at his farm home when he was struck by a derrick fork. He was struck in the back by a tine of the derrick fork and the tine penetrated his body near the heart.

It seems Mr. Sweeney was assisting in unloading hay and was engaged in pulling the fork to the ground after a load of hay had been dumped. The fork had been given too much slack and it fell to the ground with a crash, knocking Mr. Sweeney to the ground and piercing his body. He died within 30 minutes after receiving the injury.

Mr. Sweeney was about 69 years of age and had resided in the Uniontown district for many years. He is survived by a wife and five children.
