A new firm to be known as the Cash Meat Market will be opened on Sat., March 15, 1913 by J.T. Goodeve and Ed Knutson under the name of Goodeve & Knutson. The place of business will be 125 Poplar Street in the building formerly occupied by the Journal News. The owners say they will handle a stock of fresh and cured meats, fish and poultry.
MARKS HALF CENTURY HERE
St. Patrick’s Day marked a milestone in the life of Thomas J. Brown who arrived in Two Harbors in 1888. Tom had the jump on the safety razor by about twenty years and opened a barber shop on the site of his present place of business. After a fire wiped out his little place, he built the present two story structure which houses his barber shop and the Brown mortuary in 1890. Marrying Charlotte Goodeve in 1882, they set up one of the finest homes in the area of the time. His undertaking business and mortuary were established in 1895 so, should there be a business seniority list comparable with the railroad service, Mr. Brown would be accredited number one business man in Two Harbors.
CAMP HOUSE IS NOW UP FOR SALE
Dating back to 1922 George W. Watts, dock agent for the DM&IR, and George Munford, banker, purchased all the land bordering one of the area’s finest but then unnamed lakes. The lake got its name from the first names of both Two Harbors men, Lake George. In 1923 some of the property was purchased by the Duluth and Iron Range Railroad YMCA and, named for Francis E. House, then president of the railroad company, founding a camp. Over 20,000 boys and girls from this area have used Camp House but the DM&IR has now decided it will be sold and the future of Camp House and an important segment of area recreation is now at stake.
STORM BURIES REGION, NOT SPIRITS
When only a few days earlier slushy puddles had promised spring, plows were mounding snow and here and there burying cars belonging to luckless motorists when a spring storm brought plenty of snow and gusty winds to our area once more. Winter had delivered one more spectacular performance before bowing out for the season. Northlanders, though, were out. Customers walked to IGA, Hardees, and Falks Pharmacy, and as Toivo the weatherman says: Enjoy a spring snowstorm, ‘cause it won’t take six months to melt.
