We regret to learn of a destructive hailstorm that occurred
a few miles
southwest of Keytesville Wednesday afternoon. The following named
persons sustained losses: Lou Eddings, Mrs. M Minor, Welch & Patnott,
Jas. McKee, A Weatherford, and B. F. Brewer. The district affected
was about a quarter mile wide and two miles long. It is estimated that
the corn crop was damaged about one half.
Mrs. Wyatt, nee Lettie Mackay, and her sprightly little
boy, Master Virgil,
have been here for a week or more on a visit to Keytesville relatives,
likewise Miss Ella Dewey, her aunt. Both of these ladies are natives of
Keytesville, and it seems quite natura lto see Miss Ella here again, but it
is not so much with Mrs. Wyatt, as she was a little girl when she left
Keytesville with her parents, Mr and Mrs Andrew Mackay, for St. Louis.
Lettie has since then grown to womanhood and married and this time
brings with her a nice little boy of about three summers.
