Maple Works - 2 Oct. 1882
Editors Times: While the exceedingly dry weather we have been having has caused dusty roads it has afforded the farmers a splendid opportunity to get their fall work, except ploughing [plowing], out of the way.
Mrs. Alonzo Brooks was taken suddenly ill last Saturday. Dr. Morley was summoned and reports her case hopeful.
Why are teachers so scare this fall! Our district is in need of a first class teacher. Will some one of that class apply?
Joe Marsh will commence a term of school today in the first district south of Maple Works.
A very interesting game of baseball, between the Neillsville and Maple Works boys, took place here last Saturday, and judging from the motions made today by those who played in our first nine, all were eighty years old. The game closed with a score of eight to ten in favor of Maple Works. The game was called by the Neillsville boys before our boys had their last bat, as they had the game without the last half inning; according to the late rules, they had the privilege. The Neillsvillians bore the defeat uncomplainingly, and took their departure apparently happy, but not without giving Maple Works an invitation to try it again next Saturday at Neillsville, which was accepted.
