Messrs. Simon Molzahn, Charles Feisst and Andrew Roegner are the owners and officers of a neat little steam launch which has its moorings in Rock river, below Boomers dam.  The boat is twenty-two feet in length, will accommodate a dozen persons, is fitted with an eight horse-power engine and is propelled by a steam wheel.  It is of light draft and capable of developing a speed of eight miles an hour.  The launch was given a trial trip to Hahn’s lake last week and it is proposed during the summer to make excursions down the river as far as Jefferson — a most delightful and picturesque trip.  S.

COME, LOOK OVER, BEFORE YOU BUY

  

 

[Free translation accompanying the above] A. Roegner’s Granite and Marble Works. 116 North Fourth Street, one block north of Main Street.  If someone in spring wants to purchase a nice gravestone he shouldn’t wait to choose what he wishes and speak to me.  I have a large selection of monuments in stock as shown in the picture.  All stones are of the best granite available and finished in my establishment.  My price is lower than others in the business as I purchase them in the raw and manufacture them in my establishment with the best machinery – there’s no profit for an agent or middle man.  Come, look over, before you buy somewhere else and from an agent be led astray.  Everyone with me is dealt honestly.  All work is guaranteed and freely estimated/installed.  That the street car [interurban] and alight on Fourth Street, 1 block north.
