Mar. 24, 1920 — NEWS FROM HOPE

Mr. Moe and family have moved from Glengary and have purchased the Mike Anderson place on Carter’s creek.

The quarantine for flu and smallpox has been lifted and fortunately no deaths have occurred.



On May 1 the government forestry office, long located in a suite over the Bonner County bank (corner of 2nd and Cedar), will move to the second floor of the Fidelity Trust building (105 S. 1st), as the present suite is too small. It is understood, however, that not all of the Kaniksu forestry office will move to Sandpoint, as had been first reported, but a small force will be kept in Newport to manage timber sales and fire protection. Office work and superintendency will be conducted from Sandpoint.
