Pend d’Oreille Review

May 19, 1919 — CITY BREVITIES

Miss Hazel Keller left the Central hospital Tuesday after nearly four months’ illness following an attack of the influenza. She is making her home with her sister, Mrs. Clifford Reese.

The city bridge and dock committee decided to replank a portion of the city dock, laying a double track the entire length. This will require 34,000 feet of plank and it is expected to have the lumber delivered in time to complete the work in June.

The Berry bungalow on (420) Anton (sic) street was recently sold to J.R. Adam.

Geo. Chamberlain’s home, (514) S. Euclid, was sold this week to John Peters of King Iron works.

A girl was born Monday to Mr. and Mrs. R.M. Bergdahl.



The Humbird Lumber company reports the best demand for lumber it has enjoyed since the government lifted the lumber embargo with the closing of the war. The Sandpoint sawmill is producing 150,000 daily in an 8-hour shift.



Arrangements are underway at Clarksfork for construction of a fine new school building, the site for which has been selected. The brick school will cost in the neighborhood of $40,000. Bonds were voted yesterday at an election.
