No, Willard is not dead, but very much alive. The reason no notes have appeared for several weeks is because the writer has been taking an enforced vacation. What proved to be an absence of a few days lengthened into weeks. The Willard correspondent is now at home and will prove to dish up all news, good and bad, adn strive to tell the doings of Willardites in a readable way.

Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Dammeier, parents of our hustling postmaster, who have been spending the past month here, left for their home at Lena, Ill. on Wednesday.

Miss Alice Lohman of Pontiac, Ill., sister of Mrs. Samuel Long, is here making an extended visit.

On Wednesday Mrs. Almeda Taylor left for her home at Lena, Ill., after a several weeks stay at the home of A.L. Clair, during their absence to Chicago.

The other evening the Willard people indulged in an old fashioned spelling school. It was more fun than a circus. If you don't believe it, ask some who were there how to spell cuckoo and sandwich.

Mrs. Glaus left Thursday on a business trip to Minnesota.

When D.S. Holsinger and family returned from their Illinois visit, they brought with them a little orphan girl.

Long Bros. and Mr. Tumkle each received some hay from Fairchild this week.

Wood has been shipped the past week by Messrs. Altenbern, Hintz, Slaughter, tunkle and Cesnik.

A.L. Clair butchered a beef last Wednesday.

Henry Gullord of Osseo was here on a business trip the first of the week.

Mrs. Samuel Studebaker of Kent, Ill., stepmother of A.L. Clair and Mrs. Geo. Hintz returned home Wednesday, after a two week visit here.
