Yackee Blacksmiths in Roberts

At the close of business next Saturday evening the firm of A. A. Yackee & Sons general blacksmiths will quit business and with their close Roberts will lose (as a business man but not as a citizen) a mechanic who has held a leading part in the industrial life of Roberts for the past forty years. A. A. Yackee will retire from actual participation in the work and will let the other fellows do the work while he looks on. The many years of service he has given the community entitles him to a rest. The other partner in the firm, W. H. Yackee, will devote all his time to the work of the firm of the Yackee Brothers, which is increasing too rapidly to permit him longer to divide his energies between the two business places.
