The concert and dance given at the Opera House Monday night under the auspices of the Catholic Order of Foresters was well attended and a nice sum realized for the benefit of the order.

The program rendered by Miss Lucy Lowe of this city and Miss Mabel Bishop of Greenwood was of a high order of excellence. It is a very gratifying to the home friends of the two young ladies that their work was so good.

Miss Lowe is a graduate of The Western Conservatory of Music and The Columbia School of Oratory both of Chicago, and Miss Bishop is a graduate of The Chicago Musical College. The program consisted of piano solos, piano duets, mandolin duets and readings by Miss Lowe. The most competent musical critics of our city speak in high terms of the excellence of their work, and their success will be a stimulus to some of our younger students who are aiming to secure a musical education.

Another good feature of the work of both young ladies was their modest, natural and unaffected bearing and yet perfect self possession. We predict future honors for both of them. - Neillsville Rep. and Press.

Dr. Osler didn't know what he was talking about when he recommended chloroforming men past middle life. John McKenna, nearly sixty years young, knocks Oslerism sky high, for he is papa to a healthy a pair of twins as could wish to see anywhere. The mother, too, gives the lie to such foolish theories and at nearly forty-five is as buxom as many a lassie of half her years. Dr. Osler is all wrong and Clark county is all right - raises everything that nature smiles on.


Several of our correspondents are getting into the habit of mailing their items late so that it is Tuesday night and Wednesday morning before they arrive here, which makes it hard to handle them and get the paper out on time. As it is we are obliged to cut down the items to save time. There are one or two who on account of living on rural routes, cannot get their letters here before Tuesday night, but all others should be here not later than Tuesday morning. - Editor

Flesh and Blood Leg No Match in Endurance With Cork One.

It was in the commercial room and the conversation had turned on the topic of the powers of endurance shown by men of the past and present. During a lull in the conversation a young commercial man said:

"Any man, if he has the will power, can endure pain or fatigue; I know I can." Silence for a moment, and an "old man of the road" replied: "I'll bet you a dinner you can't hold your foot - boots on - in a bucket of hot water as long as I can."

The bet was taken and two buckets of hot water were brought in and a kettle of boiling water to raise the temperature to the point of endurance. In went a foot of each bettor. The young man's face began to pale, but the other called for more boiling water. "What the deuce is your leg made of sir?" yelled the former, suddenly taking his foot from the bucket.

"Cork, sir - cork," was the cool answer, and the other gentleman felt that he had, indeed, lost. - Chicago Chronicle.

*** Our recent reference to Smith Miller being left to dance in the trough alone brings forth the following:

Wenatchee, Wash., Feb. 25, 1906. Mr. J. E. Noyes, Editor, Greenwood Wis., Dear Sir: I note that in your last issue that you have me left "in a trough." Now, I don't hardly agree with you there for I consider myself the only one of the family left "out of the trough." You see when one gets married they are in a trough and can't get out so have to follow it to the end and sometimes it is pretty crooked and bumpy too. I haven't as yet, however, made up my mind to take a step into it for it is a pretty risky gamble.

Trusting this finds you well and prosperous, I remain

Very respectfully, Smith H. Miller
