Shoe and Boot Repair: Hutchinson's
The Lusk Free Lance, February 5, 1931
E.E. "BILL" HUTCHINSON TO OPEN SHOE REPAIR SHOP HERE SATURDAY
The most recent addition to the business section of this city will open Saturday, February 7th, when E.E. "Bill" Hutchinson, formerly of Wheatland, puts his shoe repair shop in operation. This business is located in the Goddard building next door to the Lusk State Bank, and the past week has seen the installation of all new, modern machinery for shoe repair work. Mr. Hutchinson for several years operated a shop in Wheatland, but sold out to go to California. Upon his return to this state he selected Lusk as having the most promising future and decided to locate here. He's a mighty fine fellow to meet and it appears that it won't be long until he has acquired a large following of customers and friends.
The family, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson and two small sons, have taken apartments in the Royal.

THIEF LOSES NERVE AND RETURNS LOOT
One day during the Golden Jubilee celebration here, someone stole a pair of cowboy boots from the shelf of Bill's Shoe Shop, and although suspects were questioned, no one was really blamed for the theft and the boots were considered lost by Bill Hutchinson.
This morning however, Bill received the boots in the mail. They were postmarked Douglas, and the return address was H.D. Smith, Gen. Del., Douglas, Wyo.
The boots had been worn and marks from spurs and stirrups were visible. Evidently the thief was through with the boots or his conscience bothered him to the extent of returning them.
