Post Office Notice

The following letters remain uncalled for: Geo. Brockman; W.E. Cowles; Agnes Halverson; Elmer Johnson, Frank Martin, Elizabeth Randall; August Schorn.

Local Matters:

Among the exiles to Washington Territory who left last Monday were ex-Mayor James Hewett, N.B. Manes; and Geo. K. Redmond. We understand W.L. Davidson will follow soon with his family.

John L. Sullivan, not the slugger of that name, was elected Chairman, of Sherwood Forest, last week. He has sold his saw mill to Farning & Crocker who will put it up on the site of Farning Mill which was burned recently.

Capt. Ure has leased his house on Third St. to G. Baruch, who will take possession May 1st. At that time Brewster who has bought the place of Mr. Dickinson, will occupy the house where Mr. Baruch now lives, and L.B. Ring will go back to his old house over the printing office.

The bridge across Black River, on Grand Avenue, is being rapidly pushed and will soon be finished. It is an important work and will bring people to Neillsville on the west side of the river a great deal easier, saving many miles travel. It should have been done long ago.

A little child of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Milligan, died last Sunday of membranous croupe and was buried Tuesday. Another child of the same family was lying at death’s door with the same disease at the time of the funeral. Mr. Milligan lives near Loyal, and is a relative of Mr. Condit.

Last Thursday night Mr. Dickey, one of the old and well known citizens of our city, had a stroke of paralysis, one side being completely paralyzed. He is hardly able to speak but hopes are entertained of his recovery.

The plurality for county judge is 67. Mr. Salter will perform the duties of that office for four years from January 6, next. He is a good lawyer, a good democrat, and will undoubtedly give satisfaction to the people of all classes. Judge Sturdevant has been an honorable, upright Judge and has looked after the interests of the people in a satisfactory manner.
