DECLARES INTENTION AT SEVENTY
Aged Luxemburg Resident Would Become a Citizen Regardless of Age, Resided in County for Years But Never Came to County Seat in Thirty Years
With war raging in his native land which he has not seen in over fifty years and although a pioneer of Kewaunee county, he had not visited Kewaunee, the county seat , in over thirty years. Eugene Dart, aged 70, and a resident of the town of Luxemburg came to Kewaunee Wednesday morning and applied for his first citizenship papers.
Mr. Dart is a wealthy farmer of the town of Luxemburg. When but a young man he came to America from Belgium. He settled upon a farm in Luxemburg, Kewaunee County and 30 years ago came to the city of Kewaunee, county seat on business. Until Wednesday that first and only visit was the only one he ever made at the county seat.
And things have changed in Kewaunee since Mr. Dart's first visit. He expressed surprise at the new court house, and was obliged to inquire as to its location upon his arrival here.
He did some trading here in years gone by, but the old "Company store" Kewaunee's once famous lumber and bark yards, had long passed into oblivion.
Another person to declare his intentions of becoming a citizen was Anton Bonjean also of Luxemburg, and a native of Belgium.
