It seems to us that if the person who has been writing "pipe dreams" for the Milwaukee, Minneapolis and Chicago papers has received money for them, she is liable to be found guilty of obtaining money under false pretenses.

It is a courtesy to your guests to see that their names appear in the local newspaper. It is due to your friends and yourself that, when visiting, their names should appear in the paper. Some one in the family should inform the newspaper of sickness in the home. Remember that the newspaper is made by human hands and brains, and if the item concerning yourself or your friend does not appear it is largely your fault. No newspaper worker is omnipresent. - Sioux Valley News.

Over twenty members of Linden Camp No. 1450 drove over to Loyal Saturday evening to visit Loyal Camp No. 1414, M. W. A., the local officers and Forester team doing the work of initiating two new members into the order there. Following the work the Loyal Neighbors treated their guests to a nice lunch. These fraternal visits are a good thing and should be often repeated. They help to break down the barriers that always exist more or less between neighboring towns.

Among those who passed the State Civil Service examination held Jan. 6, was William F. Bart, stenographer for Atty. H. C. Clark. Of the 137 who passed in the state, Mr. Bart stands sixth from the head of the list. While this does not guarantee an immediate appointment, as there may be no vacancy for a time, yet it is a most creditable record to have passed so good an examination. The names of the highest ten have been published in several daily papers. - Neillsville Rep. and Press.

County Treasurer John Huntzicker was up from Neillsville over Sunday and Monday looking after his farm interests in the town of Eaton and calling on Greenwood friends. Johnnie is being urged quite strongly to run for county clerk this fall in place of C. M. Bradford who says he is through after his present term and will not be a candidate for re-election. When asked regarding the matter Mr. Huntzicker expressed himself as preferring to get back onto his farm. The rewards of county office are not what they are supposed to be after campaign expenses, contributions to the hundred and one appeals that constantly come to the office holder, etc. are paid. He says he realized more by having the excellent and convenient school privileges that Neillsville affords for his children than he does from his office.


Dear Sir: Have you found out you can paint a job with fewer gallons Devoe than of anything else, lead-and-oil or anything else?

Mr. Floyed Almy, House and Sign Painter, Greenwich., N. Y., found it out three years ago; he writes: "I have used Devoe lead-and-zinc for the past three years, and cannot say too much in its favor. I am using it now on a big job that I took by contract, and it has saved me at least $25 in the cost of material."

Devoe is the strongest paint we know of; goes furthest; takes less of it to do your job.

Lead-and-oil is pure; lead-and-zinc is stronger; covers more; goes further.

Have you found out you can paint a gallon Devoe in less time than a gallon of anything else? That means less time for the job. Less time; less money.

Less paint; less money for that; less time, less money for that. Devoe lasts longer; do you mind the less money for that? You are surer of it.

Yours truly, F. W. Devoe & Co. New York and Chicago. P.S. - C. C. Hoehne sells our paint.


In the item last week headed "Mrs. Arrilla Carlton," which was copied from the Neillsville Times, there were several mistakes, to which our attention has been called in the following letter:

Henry Hendrickson, working at Beldenville was down to see his parents, the last of the week. His mother has been quite sick for some time. - Ladysmith Journal.

Granton, Wisconsin, March 8th, 1906. The Greenwood Gleaner, Greenwood, Wis. Editor: Enclosed please find check for $1.25 to pay for the Greenwood Gleaner for another year. I am glad to receive the Gleaner every week, in fact it's more than a letter every week with the news from all around my former home, and extend the best of wishes to the editor and his paper.

Yours truly, -- Harry Eide.

Manor, Mar. 3rd, 1906. Dear Friend Noyes and everybody: I though perhaps some of my old friends might want to hear from old Stanton. Well, he is all right. When I left Greenwood some thought I would soon get homesick and be like the Prodigal son and return to good old Wisconsin where any one shivers and shakes with the cold until their toe nails drop off. Well we have been here almost a year and a half and haven't been homesick yet. The longer I stay here the more I think blessed is the man who wakes up in the morning and finds himself in the state of Washington. We haven't any winter at all. One day it snowed but melted as fast as it touched the ground. The coldest it has been was 22 above zero and I guess that is some different from good old Wisconsin. All such birds as robins, blue birds and meadow larks and black birds have stayed right with us to cheer us up with their songs.

There are many things in favor of this country besides what I have spoken of. We don't have any potato bugs or chinch bugs to fight and that is a good thing for any one lazy as I am. The prospects are very good for us to have an electric road by our place - what is called the St. Helens Public Service Co. - they are getting the right of way and sticking the grade stakes.

There are lots of Wisconsin folks close by us from Clark county and Jackson county, some of our intimate friends and it makes it very pleasant to have them to visit with.

Well I will mention some of the stuff we raised here last year in the shape of fruit. We sold over $200 of prunes and we had about 200 bushels of apples and I guess as many as 75 bushels of pears and 25 or 30 bushels of grapes and all kinds of plums and no end to small fruit in the line of berries.

Well I guess I will stop for fear that I will make you all anxious to come west. With best wishes to all, good bye. - J. W. Stanton.
