Editors Times: The addition that Chas. Cornelius has placed at the north end of his store changes the appearance of his quarters and makes quite a commodious building.
Mr. Free Converse, with a crew of men in the employ of W. T. Price, is now building logging camps in the town of Freemont.
Mr. Thomas Frasher returned from New York State last Friday, but not alone this time. He brought a better half with him. They are congratulated by their many friends of this neighborhood.
Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Marsh returned from their visit to Pennsylvania last Thursday. They report a glorious visit in every respect, and say that the renewal of old acquaintances there will ever be remembered though many of those interviews will probably never be repeated.
Mrs. Reed, who has been visiting at Fond du Las the last six weeks, returned last Wednesday. Her niece, Miss Anna Reed, came with her and has been engaged to teach our school, commencing next Monday. Miss Reed appears like an experienced teacher, and we have a right to expect a good school.
Henry Limber had the misfortune, last Saturday, to jam one of his hands badly in a small engine that he has in the wagon shop.
A pleasant little dance at the Marsh hall last night was sparely attended.
Fred Davis and Joe Marsh were delegates to the temperance convention held at Neillsville last Friday. The True Republican did not appear at Maple Works early enough to prevent their attending such a place. If last week’s issue of the True Republican should be very extensively circulated through our community, it is very likely that, thereafter, there will never be another new party organized until the editor of that sheet has been consulted. But was the Ohio matter, referred to by him, a square statement of the facts in the case? I would like to ask the readers of that paper to look the matter up and see. He says that prohibitions principles are moral, but we must waif for an issue until the times are ripe for it. Oh, my dear editor, we have wante3d for the times to ripen and our lives are ripening with the Times, without the issue, is as green as ever. Now, Mr. Ring, is it not just as well to be a "moral politician" as a cussed one?
