Change at Poor Farm.

On Thursday of last week B. F. Frasier the new superintendent of the poor farm took charge of that institution. A. F. Franz the former superintendent moving back to his former home in Abbotsford.

Mr. Frasier is a practical and progressive farmer and an active man of affairs. He has resided in Clark county twenty-four years, making a home and developing his farm in the town of Beaver. For four years he represented the town on the county board and has always taken an active part in town and county affairs. He is a director in Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Co., and president of the Lynn Mutual Tornado Ins. Co. Mrs. Frasier is a woman of kindly heart and good common sense and will make an ideal matron for the poor house. We believe that the inmates will receive excellent care, and the interests of the tax payers will not suffer at the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Frasier.

Mr. and Mrs. Franz and family have made many friends in this vicinity and take them the best wishes of this community. - Neillsville Rep. and Press
