Dane Prairie June 27
A party was held Sunday in honor of Mr. Davis our retired mail carrier , at Oscar Aaness’

Berger and Arnt Huseby. These were patrons on Route No. 1 through the thirty years Mr.
Davis served and Mr. Davis stated that before he retired - he was bringing mail to the third
generations of some of the old timers. He also told of some of his experiences while serving
as carrier; that he wore out twenty-two horses, two motorcycles and six cars and if all this had

RURAL ROUTES

From the Fergus Falls Journal
approximately Feb 1, 1919

Rural Mail Service Out of This City
Established Just Fifteen
Years Ago

Fifteen years ago Saturday--on
Feb. 1, 1904--the first rural routes
were established out of Fergus Falls.
There were five of these routes and
they were something of an experi-
ment in this locality at that time.
Today, the entire county and for that
matter, the entire northwest, is cov-
ered by rural delivery routes and
they have become a fixed part of the
daily life of every community. No
one would today think of dispensing
with the services of the rural carrier
anywhere.
One quite remarkable fact in con-
nection with this matter is that
three of the five carriers who en-
tered the service fifteen years ago are
still making their daily rounds. They
are J. H. Whitson, W.A. Davis and
Frank Correll. It would be difficult
to find men who have put in fifteen
years of more faithful services.

The Mail Route was the First Mail Route of of Fergus Falls, Minnesota in 1904
This is the Cover Story for the Picture of Mail Sled
This week's coverf picture was taken about 1915.
It show how Williard Davis, the mail carrier on Route 1 brought us the mail in the winter.
He was sitting inside the cab when the picture was taken. At times he would take short cuts
acros field and lakes. This was taken at the Rosvold Farm, now the Thompson farm, while driving
through their yard. He had two horses and alternated them every other day.
Thank you Agnes Thompson of Fergus Falls for shareing this week's cover picture with the Midweek
Readers.

On 1880 Census he is listed as Willey Davis.

OTTER TAIL

Was one of the first rural mail
carriers out of Fergus Falls, MN. This information came from the Fergus Falls falls
journal of Fergus Falls, MN. About the year 1922. Around the world seven times-
Mr. Davis, mail carrier on route 1, from this city, given agreeable surprise Willard
A.
Davis, rural mail carrier on route no. 1 out of this city, was given an agreeable
surprise by his route patrons in the Dane Prairie and Buse townships Sunday. He
and his family were invited out to take dinner at the Johnson home there and they
were then told there was to be something of a neighborhood picnic to which they
were invited. Mr. Davis had no suspicion that the picnic was arranged for him until
her arrived at the town hall when he found something like seventy-five
automobiles assembled. It was a perfect day and a big picnic dinner was served.
Everyone who came brought a sack of corn or oats and Mr
Davis will have a very liberal winters supply for his horses. Route no. 1 was
probably the first rural route established in Ottertail Co. co. And Mr Davis has
been carrying the mail there ever since it establishment, eighteen years ago. It is
computed that during that time he has traveled a total of 130,000 miles, which
means he could have gone around the world seven times and started on his eighth
journey if he had traveled in a straight line. It is a remarkable record and has been
one of the most accurate and efficient carriers in the state. The following item is
from the Fergus Falls, MN. Journal of June 1934. Wore out six automobiles. Mr.
Davis retired mail carrier also wore out 22 horses and 2 motorcycles. Dane prairie

around the earth and stared well into his 12th time
