Newspaper Clippings - Peotone, Illinois, May, 1907

Here's one short column from the local news of the Peotone, Illinois Vedette.  Walter Jorgenson is my second Great Grandmother Lena Jorgenson's brother.  She was married to William Roscoe and living in Saline County, Nebraska by this time.  I would have loved to have found a mention of her paying a visit.  This is from microfilm, not a searchable, digital source. 

Peotone Vedette, May 17, 1907

L. J. Jackson of Piper City, Ills., painted his farm house this year.  Bought 17 gallons of Devoe lead-and-zinc, and hired Wm. Brown, painter, to put it on.  Returned 4 gallons; good job.  S. D. Culbertson & Son, dealers.
Mrs. Lee of New Holland, Ills., hired James Hughes, painter, to paint her house; got 15 gallons of Devoe lead and zinc paint; used only nine.
Devoe is economy.
Yours truly
F. W. DEVOE & Co,
New York and Chicago
HENRY AMMAN & SONS sell our paint.
