Bealer’s (30 September 1937)


Bealer’s Trip Out West - In a letter to the Granton Leader it is learned the Bealers are enjoying their trip immensely.  In part they write as follows:


We left Chili at three o’clock Thursday morning and started on our trip to the West.  Just before crossing the border line to Minnesota a lone deer crossed the road ahead of us and disappeared into the bushes along side of the road.  We reached the Twin Cities at seven o’clock and traveled through Minnesota to Long Lake where we stopped at eight o’clock and had our breakfast.


We crossed the border line to South Dakota about two-thirty o’clock in the afternoon, reaching Hillhead; we stopped to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bealer.  We stayed there a day and two nights.


Accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bealer, we drove to Ledgerwood, North Dakota where we visited friends, one of whom being the August Grobe family, former residents of Chili.  That same evening we returned to Hillhead.


Bright and early the following morning we left for Aberdeen, South Dakota, and had trouble with our trailer all the way.  That night we spent at McLaughlin.


We left in the morning for Lodgepole where we stopped a night and a day at the Robert Bealer home.


The story of our trip will be continued in next week’s issue when we tour the Black Hills. (Sorry folks we do not have that copy of the next issue).
