Did you get a valentine? Bert Lawrence was a Neillsville visitor Sunday. Sam Adams is enjoying a visit from his brother. Al Turner was seen again in our midst last Sunday. George Root went to Neillsville on business Wednesday last. Mercury took a rise again thise week and has risen quite high. Fred Benedict started for camp near Withee last week. W.C. Fulwiler enjoyed a sleigh ride to Chili, Saturday. William Rowe had a slight attack of the grippe the last few days. Uncle Sam has appointed George Lindsley to be our new postmaster. Mrs. Ed Cochrane visited with Mrs. Hi Windover last Wednesday. The sweet music of A.W. Hales' sawing machine was heard again the first of last week. Arthur Windover improved the fine weather last Wednesday by taking a donkey ride. John Gardner received severe injuries a few days ago at Hein's mill by a belt striking him. Hugh Bolton and Chauncey Fowler visited friends at Humbird the fore part of last week. The oyster supper and donations given by the M.E. Church last evening was well attended and $35.50 was taken in which was handed to our pastor, Rev. Hoffman. Bertha, the oldest daughter of John Breese, lies dangerously ill, suffering from a blood tumor and the doctors in attendance express no hopes of recovery. A chief manager of the Romadtke Lumber Company is in this community taking an estimation of the timber, as said company has about sold out to firms in England. The snow storm of last Friday seemed to cheer up the farmers again in this vicinity as some were complaining of poor sleighing in the neighborhood of Neillsville. The York correspondent of the Neillsville Times made a mistake last week in announcing that the Epworth League would hold a donation, as no such donation took place. The young people of this place gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Seth Chapel last Wednesday evening in honor of their daughter Phena's birhday. All had a pleasant time and went home rejoicing over the event.
