Mr. G. K. Mansuer and family now occupy the Manes’ residence on East Street.

Greenwood, it seems, is not quite as pure a village after all as one might suppose.

Miss Jennie Brokaw, of the town of Sherman, is attending the public schools of this city.

The opening of the fall term of school at Marshfield was postponed on account of Diphtheria.

The new depot was raised yesterday, and it will be ready for use before the track is laid into town.

Johnny Servaty is conducting the affairs at Bridge’s confectionery store during Here’s absence in Minnesota.

It is high time the old maids, the young maids, and the pretty maids are making plans for attending the coming fair.

Robert Zimmerman, who has for many months past been with H. I. Youmans, the druggist, has concluded to go west as far as Montana, in about two weeks.

Track laying on the extension commenced at the depot this morning. The trustle work on the east side of the river, to connect with the big bridge is nearly completed.

When you go to the Fair don’t fail to examine carefully the agricultural implements on exhibition, even if you have to forego, for an hour or two, the pleasures of the race track.

Last spring the people of Greenwood voted "no license" and the saloon had to go. And now the minister has skipped, and the source of amusement is gone. Verily, Greenwood has fallen upon bad time.

There has been considerable trouble at Greenwood the past week over Methodist Church affairs in that city. The trouble commenced, however, last winter, when G. C. Andrews and Mr. Hunt withdrew from the church. The minister, who was an importation from Canada, has how been there about two years. The first year he was sent there as a "supply,"’ but last year he was received into the conference on probation, sent back for a year, and last Saturday was the day appointed for passing upon his character, and if found OK was to be received into full fellowship. The presiding elder was present to hold Quarterly meeting and listen to reports as to his standing in order to make him a fixture if found correct. But his astonishment can be better imagined then described, when Mr. Rayson confessed without any seeming cause, to indiscriminate adultery with a large number of the ewes of his flock. On Monday a church trial was held and he was quicly deposed from his priesthood. It is a sad condition of affairs. Mr. Rayson was a man of about thirty years, fine looking and would weight about 190 lbs. From his confession, he is evidently a master.
