Our country roads are in pretty bad condition, hardly passable in places. Owing to the bad rains last week, Rev. G.N. Foster did not come to preach to the people at the Center. Try again. Ed Turner visited the county seat Wednesday last looking for something that he couldn't find. S.D. Gibson transacted legal business at the city last Wednesday. L. Mack was the guest of his pa and ma at Loyal last Wednesday and Thursday. The sugar season was short and sweet. Geo Lawrence contemplates erecting a handsome new residence this summer. From all accounts Geo has something on the string. H. Peat occupies his own dwelling again. How do you like baching it, Henry? Norman Rogers has returned from Phillips, where he was employed in a camp during the winter. Miss Bertha Hallock has engaged as pedagogue in Dist. No. 2. We understand that Cyrus Snyder said good bye to his many friends and took his departure for the west a few days ago. Perry, did you win that game Friday evening? Miss Maud Humiston closed her term of school near the mound and is once more one of us to joy and satisfaction of _______. We won't attempt to state who our town officers will be for the coming year. It is difficult to say just where lightning might strike. Remember the missionary birthday box in the M.E. Church and when you have a birthday just step up and drop as many pennies as you are years old in the box. Say, boys why not organize a base ball club here this summer? Math Rondorf left for his home at Sparta last Wednesday. Leslie Mack had a nephew, from Menomonee, visit him a few days last week. York is coming to the front. Several new substantial buildings will go up this summer and farmers are improving the opportunity by building wire fences. The York correspondent of the Neillsville Times said a local democrat was lost and couldn't be found. Well, looking at it from our standpoint, a good many are lost or hiding somewhere. Owing to the high water in O'Neill creek Frank Krejci has to take a round about way to go to the city. Fishing season is at hand - boys, let's go. H.F. Gibson visited the county seat last week and came back with some farm implements. Looks as though Herb was going to do some farming. I. Fulwiler was afflicted with neuralgia a couple of days this past week. G.S. Rowe has taken up carpenter trade, his old profession. Miss Sadie Graves attended teachers' examination at Loyal Wednesday and Thursday. A load of people visited friends at Pleasant Ridge Friday afternoon. W.H. Rowe followed suit Friday and went to the city by feet. Geo Drake made a fortune the other day - he killed two coons. Francis Palmer thinking that times were too hard for him to keep his pet wild cats any longer, killed them. Last Friday the Misses E.M. Turner and J.B. Rowe improved the beautiful day by calling on some of their lady friends. Last Friday evening Amos Fulwiler and Walter Rowe were seen making their way toward W. Graves' house. Walter has attractions that way any how but, Amos, what is there for you? Mrs. Wm. Smithers called on her daughter Dora at Granton Thursday. Rex, come to the front and make yourself known, won't you? The blizzard that Hicks prophesied for us some time ago didn't reach us until Saturday and toyed with our whiskers quite briskly. Norman, come, we are waiting for those cigars. A certain young man got stuck in the mud while out riding with his best girl and he was heard to say that people should be prosecuted for working for working on highway in the fall of the year. We think so too. Mr. Gibson, of Humbird, keeps the F.M. wheel turning. W.H. Smithers was reported on the sick list the latter part of this week. Rev. Davis, presiding elder on this charge, preached to a large and enthusiastic crowd on Monday evening. Sam Gibson and Mrs. C. Campbell are enjoying a visit from a brother who resides in Ohio.
