C.C.Sniteman and John Paulus have purchased the stock of goods of Lige Myers, on the North side, and will continue the business. We would like a pannel picture of John wrapping up hairpins and cheese.

Dingley & Begley are putting in a saw-mill at Greenwood. The machinery is now on the ground. With the large amount of hardwood surrounding the place, and the big demand for that class of lumber, the mill surely ought to prove a paying investment for the owners, and a good thing for Greenwood.

The M.E. Sociable will meet with Mrs. A.B. Marsh, Wednesday, July 10 instead of July 3d. The date of the sociable has been changed on account of the fact that so many entertainments are in prospect during the first week in July.

The grounds for the furniture factory building have been staked off. We understand that one of the buildings will be 65x125, four stories high. The engine and boiler room, which will be fire-proof will be some distance from the main building. Mr. Morrison, the superintendent, has been given authority to erect such buildings as seems necessary to carry on a successful business.

Attention has been called to the advertisement of Barton & Wolff, agents for the celebrated Champion Binders, mowers, and other machinery, and manufacturers of wagons, buggies, sleighs, etc. Mssrs. Barton & Wolff are energetic workers and square dealers, and the purchaser can depend upon getting good vehicles of their own manufacture or of other manufacture which the sell.

L.W. Larson, at Greenwood, makes a specialty of fine shoes for gentlemen, ladies, Misses and children’s wear. Mr. Larson received a new invoice last week, and it was the finest layout in foot gear we have seen in a long time. Mr. Larson is drawing a big trade because of the good quality of stock and his low prices.

Craig, in jail for killing a horse, out of revenge, left for parts unknown Thursday afternoon. He was allowed to work outside, in cutting dock and weeds around the court house park, and turned up missing about 3 p.m. He had evidently read of a like performance this week on the part of a horse thief at Black River Falls.

A trotter by the name of "Minnie H." will be down from Neillsville to participate in the races here the 4th and of course will be accompanied by a number of backers. "Success" is a ruling Neillsville motto. Neillsville people always play to win; but John Peterson does not propose that they shall take first honor this time.—Black River Falls Runner

Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Hemphill returned last Monday from their wedding tour, and Thursday night a grand reception was given in honor of the young couple, at the mansion of Judge Dewhurst, the bride’s father. A large and select party filled the rooms and enjoyed themselves until a late hour. All the usual society games and amusements were indulged in, and a magnificent spread partaken of. The large mansion was illuminated, and the affair was, perhaps, the most brilliant ever had in this city.

Pete Johnson called our attention to a new invoice of furniture from the Hudson factory the other day. It is the finest finished furniture on the market, in the opinion of Mr. Johnson and he has handled many makes. We acknowledge that we have never before seen as highly polished furniture of its class anywhere.

We desire to call the attention of Mrs. Schofield to the manner in which M.S. has painted her favorite buggy. Bob had the buggy in front of Pete Steven’s shop last Saturday for the purpose of having the top repaired.
