Mr. Curtis and wife were the guests of Ernest Grabe and wife the fore part of this week. Perry Palmer had a runaway a few days ago and the result was that the harness was torn to shreds and one horse slightly hurt, Perry escaped uninjured. Our merchant, E. M. Rowe, is making preparations to move his stock of merchandise to Granton, where he intends to carry on business. Fred Garvin was seen amongst us again Sunday, wearing a smiling face. Fred, what is it that causes you to look so happy? William Smithers and daughters Maggie and Lois visited at Neillsville Tuesday. H.L. Snyder had a slight billious attack the fore part of this week. Miss Sadie Graves closed her term of school Friday and is again one of us. The dance held at William Dorn's last Thursday night passed off quietly and the light "fantastic toe" was tripped until the wee small hours of the morning. While on his way to camp Sunday evening, Willie McMahon was taken suddenly and violently ill. He was taken home and the doctor sent for. At last reports he was doing well. Martin O'Brien, Sr. had a runaway Thursday last. No serious damage was done. A.P. Fulwiler went on a hunting tour Friday afternoon looking for jack rabbits, etc. but finding nothing but trees to shoot at concluded to turn his steps homeward, but before arriving there he had the pleasure to tree a field mouse and didn't even succeed in bringing that down. Amos, try again. Some farmers were thinking last week that glorious spring was at hand, when "lo and behold" a young winter set in and changed their tune to Annie Rooney. The handsome residence of C. Carlson, a few miles southeast of here was totatlly destroyed by fire on Thursday, January 11th, and as far as can be ascertained nothing of any value was saved. Mrs. E.M. Rowe gave a rag party Saturday and a good time was enjoyed. A. Benedict was at Lynn Saturday on business. John Corzette and wife and Mrs. John Redmond were seen in our midst Sunday. The kids, both old and young, are improving the time by coasting while they have an opportunity. Among those on the sick list last week were Lyman Johnson, Mrs. Elmer Redmond, Fred Benedict, and Levi Fulwiler. Walter Rowe and Tom Garvin were seen again in our midst Sunday.
