Wilfred Heaslett who was at one time a butter maker for Frank Zetsche in his West Side creamery, but is now employed in the state hospital for the insane at Yankton, S. D., was married on Jan 17th to a Miss Elsie Krause of Brown county, but also employed in the same institution as is her husband.

Dan Timerson was up from his farm in York Saturday to mill, it making him a drive of fourteen miles one way or twenty-eight miles here and home.

Herb White and Albert Anderson are both full fledged railroad men, the latter having gotten a position as brakeman on the Northwestern road out of St. Paul, while the former is running on the Central line.

Ole A. Anderson has sold his farm in the town of Eaton, which he bought about a year ago from the Baxters for about $10,000 to Edward Greiner of Lomira, Dodge county, the consideration being $15,000 for the 300 acres. Mr. Anderson takes in the deal a hotel, opera house and livery stable which was owned by Mr. Greiner, which is valued at $9,500. Possession will be given next month.

The Neillsville papers mention the death last week of Charlotte Genevieve Woelffer, a great grand daughter of Grandma Babb. We recently were shown a photo, taken last summer, in which the little child was the youngest of four generations, the others being Grandma Babb, J. W. Hommel, Mrs. Victor Woelffer (formerly Nina Hommel.) The picture is a good one and will be highly prized. It was taken by Krause.

Simon Noah of the West Side happened to be a candidate for Woodcraft and was put through the degrees by the Loyal officers with the aid of the local Forester team. Following the work refreshments were served and all had a jolly time.
