POST OFFICE MOVED TO BUSCH BLOCK AFTER 50 YEARS IN SOUTH GAYLORD If a goodly number of Gaylord citi- zens, especially the older ones, make the mistake of going to the wrong place for their mail this week, they cannot be blamed too much. The Gaylord postoi~ce, for more than fifty years located in the first block north of the depot, has been moved. The new location is in $he Busch Block, on the west side of the street, next door to Busch Bros.' store. Postmaster Thos. W. Comnick and his assistants were in the midst of Tall eat Bird America's tallest bird is the sand- hill crane. When standing erect, the male is about as tall as the aver- [:ge man.
