Chauncey Fowler is engaged again to teach in District No. 1. Some farmers in this vicinity have began their seeding rather early we think. George Art PUSH ha, ha. Thursday seemed to be a bad day for choppers Melvin Lawrence and Abie Turner both had the misfortune to cut their own feet quite badly. Abie is minus a toe. Now we would advise you boys to slash into the timber and not go for your feet. John Vandeberg went to Neillsville on business Wednesday. G.L. Redmond got there with both feet election day. Peddlers are frequent visitors in this vicinity. S.W. Bolton nursed a swollen and painful face last week caused by an ulcerated tooth. L. Mack and S. Pease, Jr. and their families called on Mrs. I. Fulwiler Friday. The boys and girls joined hands and circled to the left Friday evening at Kohn's. A number of flocks of wild geese were seen making their way westward a few days ago. H.W. Visgar is canvassing the town selling cherry trees, old Herb, we wish you success. Election passed off quietly. A little excitement was caused in the afternoon but proved to be nothing very serious. Three tickets were on the field and we are sorry to say that ____ and Dwyer were not in it. Albion Snyder is seen in our midst quite frequently. What's the attraction Albe? An old proverb is that when you see so many women on the road it's going to storm. Boys look out. A cold epidemic is sweeping over our town at present. A little son of L. Mack was reported on the sick list a few days last week. A charity fund was raised at town meeting for the benefit of J. Breese. Mrs. S.A. Wilcox is the guest of A. Benedict and wife. York Center looks rather gloomy since E.M. Rowe has moved away. Mrs. Levi Fulwiler accompanied by Jennie Rowe and Lois Lawrence visited with Mrs. E.M. Rowe at Granton last Saturday. Rev. J.A. Bolton came up from Humbird Friday to attend to his pastorate at this place. Frank Snyder made a pleasant trip to Shortville last Friday. Cy Stockwell and his force came over here Saturday evening and re-organized the I.O.G.T. Cy is a peer in this line and knows just how to handle the gavel. Pete Hein of Neillsville was seen on our streets Sunday driving a span of high fliers. A high wind prevailed here Sunday and a snow storm followed Monday. Channey Fowler performed some handsome features with his bicycle Friday afternoon. Don't get discouraged Canney, but try, try again. Vonhinklesteinhousenblouser was the guest of F.L. Synder Sunday. C. Vick, E. Tucker and L. Chape joined the I.O.G.T. Saturday evening and Stockwell put them through the mill in elegant shape. The only trouble was that the goat was not dehorned. Norman Rogers came out with a high stepper Monday afternoon and enjoyed a fine cutter ride. We will pay our road tax in labor. L.J. Fulwiler made a flying trip to Chili Monday and he reports of it being very chilly there. At this writing the Free Methodists have a movement on foot of remodeling and repairing the old Corbett house to be used as a church this summer. Mr. Ebbe of Marshfield, spent Sunday with John Ebbe and wife. We understand that Harry Ober has sold his farm in York to Willis Williams of Grant. Consideration $1,300. W.H. Rowe and F. Gibson went on a fishing trip Monday in the snow storm and succeeded in catching a few suckers. Miss Effie Gibson spent the latter part of the week among friends at Loyal. Farmers are kept busy buying and handling hay now days. Cutter riding seemed to be the chief order of the day yesterday. C.F. Vick improved the opportunity by hauling logs to Mason's mill yesterday.
