1888Jun02Fayette.IA,  Note from T.V. Hunt of Independence.IA to Rev. F.M. Coleman, M.E. Ch in Fayette...Dear Bro. I learn that Bro. May of Independence is soon to lecture in Fayette on 'Caving in Mammoth Cave.'  I urge people to strongly hear him.  It is an interesting subject, treated in a way that will hold the attention of the audience.  Having hear the lecture, I can assure you that you will feel well paid for listening to it.  Lecture begins at 8pm, admission 25c, proceeds go to finish paying for church papering.

1890Apr18Fayette.IA, R.W. Hunt's house is on its upright and pretty nearly enclosed from the weather.   Many fingers make quick work.

1890Apr25Fayette.IA, R.W. Hunt's house, 16x24, story and a half, was completed except the plastering and inside casing one week ago.  It was the 'soonest' job on record.

1890May02Fayette.IA, Tom. Hunt is called "Prof." by his society circle at Delhi.  By the Delhi News we learn that Reuben Hunt, Sen., was "down to Tom's" over Sunday a short time since, accompanied by his wife.  This is an item worthy of note from the fact that the couple are not much given to taking trips of any notable distance.  W.H. Robertson has sold his saw-mill and presumably his engine with it.

1890Jul04Fayette.IA, R.W. Hunt was married on the evening of June 26th to Miss Laura Holmes, daughter of Fred. HolmesThey were married in their own new house recently finished and furnished.  It was a decidedly practical was of commencing life's voyage.

1890Oct17Fayette.IA, Reub. Hunt has sold his dray biz. 

1891Mar06Fayette.IA, We understand R.W. Hunt has become a partner in the furniture business with his brother, Walter E. Hunt.  Mr. Massey, the new butteer-maker at the creamery, is taking hold of his work as though he understands his business.  Marvin's saw mill as arrived and is nearly ready for business.  It is a nice, modern machine, and if he has power enough it will do a heap of work.  Cap.t Kingman, the former long time Fayette House clerk is reported in feeble health in West Union.  Cap; you should live 20yrs yet, to spin see yarns for the land-lubbers.

1891Mar13Fayette.IA, Hunt Bro's have a car load of new furniture ordered.  They propose to run the furniture business right in the front and take to now back alley for anything in the country.  Another huge snow storm last Sat & Sun.

1891Mar20Fayette.IA, Eighteen Fayette High School graduates of 1891, will address the public at the Opera House Fri, Mar 27, 1891.  The order will be:  Day Grannis, Frank O.

Bunnell, Lottie B. Davie, Harry H. Allen, John W. Kelly, Lucy A. Hunt, May L. Burgess.   Marvin is sawing logs with an 8hp engine but it requires high pressure to do it.   UIU spring term opened Tues, with 460 students.

1891Mar27Fayette.IA, Washington Hunt of Sioux Falls, SD, son of Reuben Sr., was in Fayette lately.

1891Apr24Fayette.IA, W.E. Hunt has a young colt which he is proud of.  Its line of ancestry we are unable to give, as it isn't mentioned in the Fayette County Album, but it may become another Allerton.  It is of Prince McCord, Tribune and other fast 'blood.'

1891Jun12Fayette.IA, Walt. Hunt is having his furniture store painted a cream color, and will have it pencilled in black, we are tolds.  Estey and Johnson are doing the work. Efforts are being made to have the gutters on Main.St flagged for two blocks.  We insist on having those saw logs and trees taken out of the boulevard immediately.  The city grader has scraped up several streets in pretty good style.  It is way ahead of the old plow and scraper system.  As a matter of pastime we 'took in' two steam saw mills in full blast Tues. afternoon.  This looks like business in a town the size of Fayette.  the old tumble-down horse-shed at the rear of the M.E. Ch, is not creditable to the financial status of that society, besides being a nuisance.  People hitch their teams there and leave to bite, squeal, kick, paw the boards and raise cane generally.  It is a stingy, unchristian contrivance all around.  Horse-shoeing and other work on demand, Dick Noble has returned to Fayette and taken charge of the blacksmith shop by the bridge (SE corner).

1891Jul31Fayette.IA, Will Hunt returned from the Pacific slope over a week since, and we judge from some remarks we heard him make that he thinks about as well of Iowa as Oregon or Washington.  Reub. Hunt sawed his thumb the other day then quietly fainted.  The little buss-saw did it.  He reads the papers, knows better than to "monkey with the buzz-saw" but forgot while looking to see if a lot of juveniles were monkeying with anything else.   A new 'water works' tank has been constructed to supplant the high and mighty tub-on-wheels.  The south side saw mill was running on Monday.  Ward, Finch &U Dempster appear to be interested in the west side livery stable. Bedell has ice to sell at all seasons.  The "Canada" (north of the bridge) saw mill was splitting logs on Tues.  One mill at a time appears to be the order of exercises.  The largest attendance is looked for at the Aug. races (horses) at Rush Park that has ever been at any 'spped' meeting in the northwest.  Mrs. Peter Graf's new house and barn both show size and shape.  The town is filling up.  Main St. is being occupied its entire length.

1891Aug07Fayette.IA, The 'dau. of the Postal Card' (editors dau) has spend most of the past week at Delhi and vicinity, going down with Miss Alice Hunt a week ago Thursday, and returning last Wed.  Silver Lake is something of a summer resort in Delaware.Co.IA.  There are not only two livery stables in Fayette.  For a small and unpretentious burg, this town has more societies, secret and otherwise, than any other we know.  We should like to see that Clark street extension (west) put in shape for travel even though it has to be done by subscription.  Teams can wind around through it in the daytime, as they can through any timber road, but no team could go through it at night unless preceded by a locomotive head-light.  Peter Graf has a large crop of apples this year, some say 1500 bushels, and that he commences picking for shipment.

1891Aug14Fayette.IA, Lucy Hunt teaching at Fayette.

1891Sep04Fayette.IA, New has been received of the death of Harrison Butler, at West Union, and Mr. Stewart, father of James Stewart, ex-treasurer of the county of Bethel Twp.  Undertaker W.E. Hunt attended the burial of Mr. Stewart.

1892Jan02Fayette.IA, Thomas Hunt built a new barn (T.V. retained his home and lots on the NW corner of Wash/7th St's in Fayette).  Hunt Bro's (Walter Eugene & Reuben Walter) have remodeled their furniture building so that Budlong, who built it some 30 odd yrs ago (1860+), would hardly know the same.

1892Apr29Fayette.IA, We suppose it is a fact that J.M. Edmunds has purchased the business interests of Hunt Brothers in the furniture business, possession to be given and taken whenever convenient for both parties.  This move will doubtless surprise many, but it nee d not.  Any man in this peculiar latitude is liable to buy and sell anything---not prohibited by law, and the adaptability of the Yankee nation to any sort of trade or business is one of the wonders of the balance of the world.

1892Sep02Fayette.IA, Reuben Hunt Sen., has put in a brick front to his residence near the Washington street railroad bridge.

1893Jan20Fayette.IA,   Edmund's is selling furniture at Hunt's old stand cheaper than ever, and always has a full line in stock.

Geiser, Principal; Ms. Anna Hale, Mrs. Terry, Ms. Fowells, Ms (Lucy Alice) Hunt, Ms. Hayward.  This eliminates Principal Chapman, Ms. Bailey and Ms. Mathews.  Some are mad, some glad.  There were evidently some reasons for the changes or they would not have been made.  Whether the change will be any better remains to be seen by trial.  The barn attached to the Fayette House has undergone a through renovation the past week and the office rebuilt and a telephone put in.  Something has picked the section house that stood near the turn-table and deposited it in the field twenty rods away.

1893May05Fayette.IA, Mrs. Twitchell moved her household goods last Monday from H.F. Munger's to the house belonging to T.V. Hunt on South Washington street.

1893Nov17Fayette.IA, The Fayette Gun Club is figuring on a grand hunt as soon as the snow comes and covers the ground.  Dr. R.B. Rich, Veterinary, Fayette.IA.  A burglary was committed at the Pioneer Meat Market, Sun. night.  The raiders entered through a window protected only by a wire screen.  They secured $8 in cash.  Knight Brothers have disposed of their saw mill machinery and it has been moved away.  There was no more demand for two saw mills than two universities or two hotels. Joe H. Marvin will grind feed every Sat by steam power, on stone burrs, and on other days if there is demand. Having the only saw mill in town at present he has fitted that up for business.
