Seney Store Sold To Wayne Gower Of Rockwell City, Iowa

    The Seney store which has been owned and operated by Mrs. A. D. Jeffers for 20 years, was sold at auction Monday afternoon to Wayne Gower of Rockwell City, Iowa.
    Mrs. Jeffers has been ill since December, and was unable to care for her business any longer.
    Mr. Gower has made many acquaintances in Seney.  Mrs. Gower is well known in Seney, being formerly Ruth McArthur, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy McArthur.
    Mrs. Roy Dobbert, who has been operating the store for Mrs. Jeffers, will continue to operate the store for a few days until Mr. Gower can make arrangements to move here and take over the management.
    The Seney community wish them the best of success in their new adventure.  Mr. Gower has been working in the hardware store in Rockwell City and Mrs. Gower is teaching in Rockwell City.
