AURORA, Jan. it Early in

by ; the city council, which gave'
the regularly established places of

Aurora, a temporary permit to sell;

highway July 8, - the business
street of Aurora underwent a com
plete change. Old business hous-
hes were dismantled only to rise
again on line with" the highway.
Homes became service stations or
were shifted to less valuable loca

in the erection of a tile building

Tennis Court Built
Thinking ot the younger gener
ation, a municipal tennis court 40
by SO feet with a concrete base
has been built and is being fin
anced by a committee from five
organizations, by giving dances,
card parties and donations.
7 This fall the Rod and Gun club
released 423, china' pheasants and
the Fish and Game commission
nlanted from 30.000 to 40,0(
brook trout and other fish in the
Pudding river; '81 hunting and
anglers licenses amounting to
240 Were sold this season. After
an examination of city artesian
water by state board of health
the water was pronounced as pure
as water could be, having a bac
teria count of only four per cubic
centimeter. An advance in the
price of hops has given the indus
try new Impetus and brought an
increase in acreage in old yards
and the planting of new one.
More bop and store houses have
risen and the effect has stimu
lated a movement of real estate
as six yards have changed hands
Hop Theft Unsolved
Saturday night, ' May 27, 16
bales of hopes were stolen from
the warehouse of Henry Ziegler
and moved by truck. A $500 re
ward posted by Ziegler has
brought no results. Crops were
unusually fine this spring. The
grain yield was the best farmers
have experienced In 10 to 15
years. Many fields produced
70 to 100 bushels ot grain to the
acre. The Fry Brothers raised a
tomato measuring 15 inches in cir
cumference and Mrs. Henrietta
Will planted a new variety of
onions which produced onions five
Inches In diameter.
In retrospection we feel Aurora
has made progress and we go into
1934 with confidence. Best wish
es for a Happy New Year to all.
