LOST SPRINGS TIMES PUBLISHES LAST PAPER WITH ISSUE OF JUNE 25
The Lost Springs Times, weekly publication of the Lost Springs community for the past seventeen years, and which until recently was owned and operated by Miss Mabel Buffington and Henry C. Buffington, suspended publication with its issue of Thursday, June 25th.
This newspaper had for many years been owned by Miss Buffington's father, but he was compelled to retire from active newspaper work several years ago because of his age and failing health. During many years past, it has been a very newsy sheet, and afforded the people of that vicinity a ready account of good reading each week.
Just recently the paper was sold to Mr. A.B. Merrill, owner and editor of the Chugwater paper, and after publishing six issues, he decided upon the action taken.
To our fraternal friend, Miss Buffington, who has very capably edited The Times for the past few years, we extend a sincere wish of good fortune in whatever line of endeavor she may choose to follow in the future, and we regret losing her from the list of Wyoming publishers.
