Wood Gillispie Goes Fishing

From the August 9, 1923 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Went Fishing.
Wood Gillispie holds the record for deep fishing in this neighborhood, but not at catching fish.

Some time ago Mr. Gillispie dropped a pair of eye glasses, case and all, in the well at the home, and a few days ago he dropped another pair in the same well, which had about thirty feet of water in it. He came to town and borrowed W. R. Fullerton’s magnet and let it down in the well and soon brought both pairs of glasses, in their case, out of the well.
Wood says he felt like he had received his second sight when he recovered the glasses.
