JEROME News - 1 September 1894

Daily Iowegian - 1 September 1894
  Mr Editor, after a vacation of a few weeks your Jerome correspondent will endeavor to write you some news.
  The republican township convention was held Saturday and the convention chose Frank Teagarden, secretary and Peter Sidles chairman, Ad Pendergast, Dr Hall, E A White, John Caldwell and Donald Forsythe were chosen delegates. The delegates are solid for John Stephenson for clerk and feel confident John will win as he is abundantly qualified and deserving of the office as he has always been a good republican.
  Drs Bowen and Pullman, of Centerville, were Jerome visitors with Dr Hall Sunday.
  Donald Forsythe is still on his east run.
  Miss Katie Counley, of Gladstone, broke her arm Sunday. Drs Hall and Bowen were called to set it.
  The new restaurant is now completed and is one of the finest in the county.
  Jim Buck is building a fine new residence and has it rented.
  Jim Barton is building an addition to his hotel.
  The Odd Fellows have organized a lodge and will be installed early in September. They have rented Allen's Hall and have twenty-five charter members.
  There are quite a few sick with typhoid fever.
  Drs Hall, Bowen and Pullman were guests of Dr Cover of Seymour, Sunday. The Dr is building up a good practice in that growing little city and is meeting with the best of success.
