January 28-February 3, 1926 

Dr. J.S. Wolfram of Omaha, Neb., a graduate of the McKillip Veterinary College in Chicago, arrived in Leaksville this week to be associated with Dr. H.B. Smith, a veterinary surgeon. 

Dr. Smith has only been in Leaksville six months, but his business all over the county has grown to such an extent that he felt the need of a partner. 

Dr. Wolfram will reside in Leaksville while Dr. Smith will move to near Wentworth where he will be near the center of the county and better able to take care of his widely extended work. 

Shareholders of the 17-year-old Home Loan and Building Association met in the firm's office on the Boulevard where they were told the association now has assets of $330,000. They re-elected Dr. J.B. Ray as president. ... The Bank of Madison stockholders also held their annual meeting and added a 15 percent dividend to the 10 percent paid just before Christmas. ... The Farmers Bank and Trust in Madison also held its annual stockholders meeting. Cashier J.C. Thompson was elected a director. 

Leaksville High won its 16th straight basketball game 24-20 over Welcome High, notwithstanding the absence of team captain D. Jones, out with illness. Coach Moose Tenney thinks his team has a good chance at a state championship if it can get Jones back in time for that. ... The Madison Board of Aldermen, hoping to lure new industries to town, are offering special inducements such as free building sites and freedom from taxes for a certain period of time.
