Lake City News

There have been about 600 crates of strawberries shipped from here this season, and it is likely that two or three hundred more will be shipped. This speaks well for the strawberry planters of this place.

Messrs. S. Godwin and J.M. Kennedy have put up a sawmill about three miles below town. They are enterprising young men, and we wish them much success in their new enterprise.

Quite a number of Lake Citians went on a fishing expedition to Lynches River last Friday night, which was highly enjoyed by them all. Due to the extreme coolness of the night, they caught only one fish.

The Baptists will give an ice cream festival at the tobacco warehouse on the night of the 14th for the purpose of raising money to buy a new organ for the Baptist church at this place. The public is cordially invited to be present and participate.
