Sumpter Hustler News 1923-1927
Sumpter Hustler was a ladies club. This document has some
newspaper clippings telling about the events of the club and
what some of the members were doing. It gives an interesting
account of various people living in Sumpter. My grandmother
Ella (Fraust) Hyer, was an active member of the club, and is the
reason why I have these documents. I am not able to
determine which newspaper these clippings were from, however
I believe they were from The Sauk County News, since I know
my grandparents received that newspaper. We have tried to
make this transcript an exact copy of the newspaper
articles; we have not tried to correct miss spelled or miss
typed words or names.
