Dancers from all over the country dedicate new store

   The dedication of the Midland Coal & Lumber Company’s new store building last night was one of the notable social functions of the season.

  The hard maple floor proved excellent for dancing, and was thronged from nine o’clock until daylight this morning when the orchestra played the “Home, Sweet Home” waltz.

   There were a number of people here from the outside.

  The music was excellent, it being furnished by the Ekalaka Orchestra.

Baker Mill’s Product Fine

   The Baker flour mill is now turning out a first-class product. Formerly known as the William O’Loughlin Mill, it was taken over several weeks ago by a strong company of eastern capitalists, incorporated under the name of Baker Milling & Grain Company.

   General Manager Prall returned Friday morning and it was not long thereafter that the wheels were turning.

   The company has been fortunate in securing the services of a first-class miller, Mr. J.A. Brownson, of Ohio.

   The flour turning out is testing up very fine, according to Mr. Prall, and is equal to anything on the market.
