Elmer Van Voorhis lost one of his horses last week that he used on the delivery wagon. The loss is a hard one to him as it will be difficult to find another that will be so well matched for his other horse and that was so trusty for the position.

No, the Gleaner is not responsible for all this snow. We only asked for it when there was a general demand for it, but dislike dabbling in the weather business for a steady diet. However, we could easily get along without any more for some time to come.

Wm. Schwarze didn't mind the cold weather and storm at all this week. He went around town with a large size smile. The cause is a big nine pound boy who arrived last Thursday at his home. Mrs. Schwarze and the boy are getting along in fine shape. - Loyal Tribune.

August W. Froehlich is home visiting his father and family on the West Side. He is a fireman on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road running west from Aberdeen, S. D., he having worked up from a round house position during the past two years. He expects to return to his work next week.

In our list of officers for the Knights of the Maccabees last week we were in error in placing G. S. Barlow as we did. He is past commander. And instead of the commander being A. F. Sheets, it is R. C. Mason. Mr. Sheets was elected but on account of being away most of the winter resigned.

W. M. Huntley, the Neillsville marble and granite man, and Ira J. Wolff, the carriage painter, were up Tuesday calling on friends and looking after business interests. If the Neillsville Times is authority we may expect to see the former coming up here later on in a spank and span new automobile.

A most remarkable arrangement of numbers is the combination of six figures 142,857. Multiply it by 2 and the answer is 285,714; by 3 the answer is 714,285, and by 6 the result is 857,142. Each answer has the same digits as the original sum, and if you multiply it by 7 up comes the answer 999,999. Try it and see.

Chas. Luchterhand, who lived between Greenwood and Loyal on the Beaver-Loyal line, died last week and was buried Thursday in the Dodgeville cemetery. He has been in poor health for a year past. He leaves a wife and several children to mourn his demise. Undertaker Bishop had charge of the funeral which was held at Loyal.

Word was received Saturday noon that Grandma Burch had died that morning at the home of her son-in-law, Ed. Strand, near Blair. Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Burch and Edna and Mrs. Thea Anderson left Monday morning to be present at the funeral. Deceased was 95 years old last Sept. 30th and up to about ten years ago was a rugged woman. At that time she sustained a stroke of paralysis on the right side, but from which she partially recovered. During the past year she has failed quite fast so that her mind weakened and dwelt almost wholly on things of the long ago. Her son E. T. Burch was down to see her only a few weeks ago and found her as well as she had been during the past year. For some eighteen years Grandma made her home with her son in Greenwood, but for the past seven years has resided with her daughter, Mrs. Strand at Blair, this daughter dying during the past summer.

H. J. and Hannah Miller departed Thursday on their return to Chehalis, Wash., going first to visit their sister at Audubon, Iowa. From thence they will go through the southern states. "Jack," as everybody in Greenwood prefers to call him, is always a welcome visitor and leaves a warm spot wherever he goes. He especially delights in reviewing the earlier days in Greenwood, when as he puts it, "there was one church, one lodge, one saloon, one people - all were united and worked together." We asked him while here this time to prepare a sketch, sort of historical account, to be done in reminiscent style, of the days when he was a youngster in Greenwood, with such high rollers as Kin Andrews, Peter Stevens and several others we might mention but will not, as associates, and H. J. has promised that he will do so. We can assure those not acquainted with the author that whatever he chooses to write will be mighty interesting reading.

"Our Old Neighbors"

Henry Johnson recently received a letter from R. S. Hummel of Portland, Oregon, and with his permission we quote a part of it, as follows:

"Well, Hank, how is the weather there this winter - does the roses bloom out doors, and does the truck wagon come to your house every morning with fresh garden stuff? Oh no, I guess not. And are the farmers plowing and their cows grazing? Guess no. Well, all that is going on around here; green peas, lettuce and beans every day. Had strawberries for New Year's dinner. The weather is fine, but I have not gained any yet. Weigh 112 lbs."

*** It will be noted by the following, clipped from the Rusk County Journal of Ladysmith, that a former Clark county man is prospering in his northern home:

"A twelve-pound son came to gladden the hearts of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Decker, last Saturday."

*** Horace Brownell, son of E. M. Brownell, was here from North Crandon visiting his father. He arrived Sunday and returned Tuesday night. - Ladysmith Journal. It will be remembered that Horace attended school here a few years ago and clerked for Frankenberg and Fricke.

*** A recent letter to Greenwood friends of Mrs. Geo. Fye - formerly Letelsia Cook - of St. Paul, mentions the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Pline have a three-months-old boy. Mrs. Pline was formerly Viola Dutcher, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Dutcher of this city.

*** The following from the Black River Falls Banner, will be interesting to many Gleaner readers as indicating that Mrs. Taylor must have regained her former health.

"Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Mills, Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Jones and Miss Margaret Price gave a card party to a large company of friends at the Freeman House hall Monday evening, which proved one of the best arranged and most enjoyable social events of the season, or for a number of seasons. It was also one of the largest, though not quite so large as anticipated on account of the inclemency-of-the-weather interference. However, just one hundred guests participated in progressive cinch at twenty-five tables, and quite a number of others were provided with amusement in other ways."
