Hewett, which in the course of a couple of days set fire to the woods, and good fighting alone prevented it near approach to town on Wednesday.
Last Sunday Mr. L. J. Glass’ boy, Frankie, while playing with his little companions had his foot caught in the gearing of a horse-power, used at the brewery, tearing the heel nearly off. The wound was a very painful one, and has caused the little fellow a great amount of suffering, but he is recovering, and all feel thankful that the injury is no worse, as it is a wonder that it was not.
Mr. C. A. Youmans has gone on a ten days trip to Barron County to visit friends, and look after a homestead he has taken in that distant clime. Mr. Youmans will make a sleek looking leek digger.

Mr. F. S. Kirkland has returned from his wanderings and taken his place within the railing at the Bank.
Miss Kittie Kirkland, so well and favorably known in this village, gave one of the most successful concerts ever given in that place at Black River Falls, on Friday evening of last week.
