Word received Monday evening announced the death of Mr. Dingley at the hospital at Glendive, Mont. Mention of his misfortune was made last week. Thursday morning Mrs. Dingley and Norman left to go to his bedside and arrived there Friday evening, finding the patient very low and not able to recognize them, though it has not been learned whether or not he rallied enough to do so before he died Monday afternoon.

The body was prepared for shipment and the party started for Greenwood Tuesday afternoon and are expected to arrive here this morning. Nothing will be done regarding the funeral until Mrs. Dingley can be consulted after her arrival, but it is doubtful if it will be held before Saturday and more likely it will be held Sunday afternoon.

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.


Two Popular Greenwood Young People Married Monday Evening, April 9th

Fernando Woodman Anderson and Miss Hannah Margaret Thompson have formed a merger of names and interests. In other words these two estimable young people have been made husband and wife. The happy ceremony making them such took place at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Thompson, at eight o'clock Monday evening, April 9th and was witnessed by only the immediate relatives of the contracting parties. Rev. W. T. Hendren pronounced the words that bind until death shall them part, using the ring ceremony.

The bride was attired in a beautiful white silk dress and presented a charming picture. She carried white bride's roses. The rooms were tastily decorated with bride's roses and large carnations in white and pink.

Following the ceremony and congratulations, the wedding party sat down to a tempting supper, to which all did ample justice.

Both these young people are popular with a large circle of friends. With the exception of a year or so spent away at school and at work, the groom has spent his life so far in and near Greenwood, Clark County, being the son of Mrs. Thea Anderson. The bride has lived for the past fifteen years in Greenwood and is a graduate of the Greenwood High School. She, as well as her husband, will have the best wishes of a host of friends that their married lives may be happy, prosperous and useful.

Mr. Anderson is bookkeeper for the Farmers Co-operative Supply Co., which position he has held, with the exception of part of the first year, ever since the store was started in 1899. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have rented rooms with Mrs. Cynthia Varney, where their friends will find them settled down like regular old married folks.

The Hay Shipment

We recently noted where a Christie merchant shipped a carload of hay to Tennessee and paid over $100 freight on it, whereas a carload of fruit had been shipped from San Francisco to Boston for $72.

This load of hay was shipped by Elmer Brown of Christie. He loaded it at Greenwood, on a branch of the "Omaha" road and it went to Chicago and then over the "Monon" to Nashville, Tenn. The load weighed twenty-nine tons and over, nearly thirty tons, and the freight was 30 1/2c a hundred, amounting to $116.02.

This seems and is exhorbitant since the car of fruit cost only $72 and the fruit car was iced seven times enroute, at a big expense to the railroad company. - Neillsville Times.
