Wilcox, Wisconsin: March 21, 1894

Did you here those frogs? Inclinations of an early spring. Mr. Haskins and wife, of the Town of Beaver, were the guests of George Lindsley and wife a few days last week. A little son arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Noel Rogers the first of the week. Noel, accept our compliments. Miss Emily Smithers was the guest of Mrs. Mary Fulwiler, Wednesday. H.F. Gibson went to Granton on business the middle of the week. Bill Fulwiler went on a hunting expedition Thursday morning, and after rambling around in the forest for several hours thought best to turn his steps homeward. He finally succeeded in bringing down a long eared jack rabbit, much to his surprise. Miss Eva Turner was the guest of Miss Jennie Rowe Thursday afternoon. A very pleasant evening was spent at the home of Miss Sadie Graves the 16th. The time was improved by singing and playing Tiddlewinks in which Amos Fulwiler and Perry Campbell came out ahead, winning two straight games. Our town treasurer, S.D. Gibson, transacted business at the county seat Thursday. The smiling countenance of Miss Maud Humiston was seen in our midst once more the latter part of the week. S.W. Bolton and wife visited with Mrs. Rea, in Grant, Saturday. Mrs. H.A. King visited with friends at the Center last Friday. School District No. 2 will give an exhibition on the evening of Wednesday, March 28th. Bertha Hallock is at the head and "Old Grimes" is to take part also. People pretty near know what to expect. Remember the date and come and hear the little folks speak their pieces. Robins and blue birds can be heard now days pealing forth merry anthems. Bert and Melvin Lawrence went to Neillsville on business and to get slicked up a little, Thursday. Mrs. Henrietta Johnson, of Heathville, visited with her sister, Mrs. S.D. Gibson, last week. Mrs. Edna Lawrence and son Willie were the guests of W.H. Smithers and wife Saturday. Rev. J.A. Bolton went to Humbird last Monday and returned again Friday to attend meeting. We understand that Joe occupies a pulpit at Humbird and will also preach to our people at this place. Ernest Rowe seems to have very great attractions at Granton at late. Two signs in the shape of a figure eight around the moon were observed by some of our people last Saturday night. Rumor has it that Phillip White has sold out and has purchased another farm situated on the 26 road in the Town of Loyal. He expects to move about the first of next month. Phillip is a good citizen and we are sorry to lose him. Ernest Grabe, who is engaged at Hein, spent Sunday at home. Lawrence Bros. have taken two acres of timber of Henry Peat to convert into wood. We are informed that a wedding is soon to take place. Guess who. Mrs. S.A. Wilcox is calling on old time friends, and after some business affairs are settled up, will leave for her new home in St. Louis, Missouri. Carl Tischer has a very sick cow at present. March seems to be rather high winded.
