Donald Van Tilbury, of Coesse, who was engaged with F. M. Smith of Wanatah, Ind. in the haberdashery and cleaning and pressing business at Winona Lake last summer is to engage in the business for himself the present season. The young man has the concession from the officers of the park to engage in that sort of business and it is assured that he will meet with great success in his venture. The firm enjoyed a good business last year and with the reputation they established Don will find plenty to do in his chosen line of work this summer. It is the only thing of the sort in the Park, and is situated in the Administration building. Young Van Tilbury is an industrious young business man and will be remembered as having carried off the honors in the boy's corn contest for several years in this county.
