Schilling Station. Jan 15.

Carl Christopherson went up to Ingram Thursday.

Mrs. Henry Salzwedel is very ill and has been for some time.

The Roddis Veener and Lumber Co. buys logs at this station and Harry Hogue is the scaler.

Oscar Pearson went to Chicago Friday to enter his former position as street car conductor after two months vacation.

The second term of school in the Christopherson district commenced today with its former teacher, Olive Rand in charge.

John Pearson and David Danielson from Chicago came up to attend the funeral of their sister and sister-in-law respectively. The former's family lives in town of Beaver. They returned home Saturday.

Results of the Examinations.

In the general competitive examination held throughout the state on January 6th, a sufficient number of applicants applied for positions as clerks, bookkeepers and factory inspectors to justify the belief that it will not be necessary to hold another examination for these positions for some time. It is probable that another competitive examination for the above positions may not be held during the next twelve months.

The number of applicants in some counties for the position of game warden was insufficient and within the next two months another examination may be held for certain counties.

The demand for attendants in hospitals for the insane and feeble minded is such as to justify the belief that it will be necessary to hold another examination soon. Requests are being received by the civil service commission from authorities in control of county asylums for names of suitable applicants.

Thus far the commission has received an insufficient number of applications for positions as dining room girls and women to do various kinds of housework in the school for dependent children at Sparta, school for the blind at Janesville, state reformatory, and in the institutions for the insane and feeble minded. These positions pay from $12.00 to $20.00 a month and give in addition to that a comfortable home and maintenance.

The commission is very anxious to secure a good list of applicants for this kind of work and invites the newspapers to give this matter wide publicity.

Such is the reading of a neatly designed and printed cheque we received recently from Will Smith, formerly of Greenwood.

It strikes us as being good enough to pass on to all our readers and at the same time to head the new department which we hope will contain at least a few items every week that will interest our readers, both at home and away - in their new homes, but only away, as we like to think of it.

Lynn H. Miller, now connected with the Pacific National Lumber Co., at Tacoma, Wash., in remitting for his subscription, adds: "You can continue sending the paper to this address for another year at least and any items of interest to your new column will send you."

Word received by Greenwood friends states that Grandma Youngs, mother of Wm. Youngs with whom she lives at Park Falls, is in very poor health since last fall, being confined to the bed a goodly part of the time and having to be lifted from her bed to a chair when she is moved. It is hoped that she may recuperate and get strong again. She is getting well on in years.
