Earl Linville Succeeds in Alberta

News from Earl Linville, as reported in the September 12, 1918 Skidmore News, page 1:

Former Skidmore Boy Making Good.

A letter from Earl Linville, of Stavely, Alberta, Canada, was received by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Linville.

 

Earl is doing well in his Northern home. He has some time been engaged in the real estate business at Stavely, and has recently expanded his business interests by forming a partnership with another man and entering the garage business. A clipping from the Stavely paper telling of his new business venture says the new garage will be the most up-to-date and best equipped automobile establishment in Southern Alberta. The business is housed in a brand new brick building and is to be opened with a big dance and supper given under the auspices of the Red Cross.

 

Earl has married since leaving Missouri and his family consists of the wife and two children. They recently returned from a pleasant vacation trip in British Columbia and Western Alberta, where they enjoyed themselves in catching mountain trout, the largest of which weighed 8 1/2 pounds.

 

The wheat crop in his vicinity will average about 20 bushels per acre and Mr. Linville anticipates a good business in auto repairing and also in selling the McLaughin car for which he is agent. The Buick car in the U.S. is the McLaughin car in Canada.
