Dow. on00e00rm By Mrs Geillard Heflin HEAVENLY DAYS! The last Sunday evening of the month is set aside for the Interfaith Discussion Group at the Congregational Christian Church and it crept up so quietly we didn't get much publicity out on it. Actually, there shouldn't need to be notices, but the fact is that the public needs to be reminded that it is not closed sessions and everyone is welcome. Last week being Fair week made it a busy one for many Shelby countians. What a relief that the weather moderated and the intense heat was dissipated somewhat. Every department of FOUR GENERATIONS .... pictured are four generations of the Chester Quick family (1 to r) Mrs Glen BeBee of Avoca, holding her grandson, Stephen Glen, 11, months, Richard BeBee of Fort Collins, Colo. and Chester Quick of Harlan. Mr Quick is 81 years of age, coming to Harlan in 1909 where he operated a barber shop nearly fifty years. ::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::: :: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: i:-:.;:.;:i:'.':::.:: the Fair had it's quota of ac- tivities and a "good time was had by all". Mrs Dale Findlay and Mrs Bill Lewis were talking at the lunch counter about how tired their youngsters got, but they wouldn't dream of giving it up. I low a few adults who felt the same way! THE OLD country store in the Floral Hall did a thriving business at the used book counter. Surprisingly enough, many children came to browse time and again, often buying both comics and other books. I won- dered about one little fellow. He chose a book on building because his "daddy was so good at that". I'm sure the father must have been pleased at the thought- fulness whether or not he could use the book (it only cost a quarter). Perhaps this venture could be repeated at another time and place to reach even more people. "Simoda General Store" was the name given to the Historical Society Exhibit. As a forerunner)f Harlan, Simoda's existence was brief. An interesting field trip could be an excursion to the exact ot of the little villaue. Ed White's History has this to say about it: "The land which con- stituted the site of the village of Somida (usually called SLmoda, however) was platted by it's owner, Milton Heath and his wife, Elizabeth Heath, on Sept. 28, 1858. The land platted consisted of the east one half of the southeast quarter of section 8 and th west one half of the southwest quarter of Section 9, in township 79, range 38. This land lies in what is now Center township and for years has been a part of the farm of H. Baughn, lying on the east side of the Botna river. The plat was acknowledged by the grantors before S. Dewell, notary public and land agent. The streets were 80 feet wide, with the exception of "Railroad Street", which was 100 feet wide. The plat also contains this provision: The depot is 200 feet by 728 feet. The names of the streets were West, Sweat, Ault, Wicks, Dewell, Baughan, Heath and East The cross streets were Iowa, Vine, Railroad, Wall, Main and North. The village had a newspaper, store, a school house and ambition. When Harlan became the county seat, Somida quickly dwindled to nothing. Not a building, or so much as a tree, now remains to mark its site Action was brought in the district court to quiet the title to lots, blocks, streets and alleys of this primitive forerunner, as well as rival, of Harlan. Even the "depot" is now vacated, never to hear the sound of a locomotive to mar its rural peace." Another notation from Mr White's history published in 1915 informs us that the post office of Ravenwood was established June 8, 1857, but the name was changed July 15, 1858 to Somida (Simoda). Then, on April 23, 1859, the name of the Post office was changed again to Harlan. Three names within 3 years! How swiftly things can change. SPEAKING OF SWIFT- NESS, there was some speedy action at the Fairgrounds on opening day. Someone's young lamb got loose and went bounding down the edge of midway, crying in sort of an adolescent, changeable voice. Two little boys holding a small dog on a leash stood mesmerized watching it while some men yelled, "Get that dog out of here". However, the dog got loose, too, and took im- mediate chase. By this time people were in hot pursuit of the "baa-a-a-aing and barking" and the culprits were taken into custody! But it was exciting while it lasted ! BCNU ! Clay Ti p.
