A Roosevelt-La Follette club of 100 members was organized in Woodmen hall Monday evening, with the following officer: P.J. Tscharner, president; A. F. Falk, Dan Cook and Andy Anderson, vice presidents for Greenwood, Eaton and Warner, respectively; F. A. Oelig, secretary; John Shanks, treasurer. A short but pithy speech was extracted from the president and after some informal remarks the meeting adjourned subject to call.

It’s a hard one for a town of the pretentions of Greenwood to have the opportunity of entertaining the old settlers of Clark county for a day and then have to give it up because of the indifference on the part of those who night profit by it, if not now, certainly in the long run, but such is the case this fall. The committee of the Advancement association, whose duty it was to canvas the situation with a view to inviting the Old Settlers’ Association here, were forced to let the proposition pass. The meeting will in all probability be held at Loyal, as it has been for several years past, somewhere about the 20th.

"In the Bishop’s Carriage," dubbed by Alan Dale "the cheekiest, daringest, and sauciest of all novels," will begin as a serial in the The Milwaukee Sunday Sentinel on next Sunday. It is an astounding satire of theatrical life, a study of an irrepressible girl who begins life as a thief after spending her early days in the Home for Prevention of Cruelty to Children and finally turns her dexterity to good purposes. It is said that the heroine hold attention from first page to last, and that there is a good laugh on every page. Speaker J. G. Cannon of the national house of representatives is out with a statement that he read the book in two sittings and was sorry there was not more of it.

Last Friday morning sixty pioneer ladies of Greenwood and vicinity gathered at the Lucas grove. Mrs. Julia Bailey, who will soon leave for Oregon, was the guest of honor. Upon arrival at the picnic grounds the committee immediately began preparations for dinner. The tempting viands were spread on the grass and the picnicers found seats nearby. After the dinner was over all trace of formality had vanished, and the really enjoyable part of the day began. A few songs were sung and were followed later by recitations. Everyone, with the exception of Mrs. Burch, was on her best behavior. At about four o’clock the ladies reluctantly left the spot and departed for their homes . Farmers in adjoining counties, and mayhap some here, have been victimized of late by the same old game that worked for years. This time the graft is worked in the proposed purchase of stock from the farmer. The stranger comes to the farm, makes a deal to purchase stock and tenders $25 in part payment, which is accepted. He demands the signature of the owner to a receipt and departs promising to return in a few days, pay the balance and take his stock. The stranger never appears but there comes a notice from the bank that a note for $250, with interest due on such a date and Friend Farmer learns to his sorrow that the proposed receipt was a blind, that the $25 had been changed by adding zero and the paper sold to innocent parties. Farmers cannot be too watchful in their dealing with strangers. - Wausau Record.

Success in business is not to be remedied nowadays in the easygoing method that obtained a generation or two ago. Times have changed and people have changed with them. Push is the only thing that will carry a man ahead, and it is the liveliest pusher that gets there first. As a general rule the chronic pusher is a chronic advertiser. Printers ink is the lubricating oil of his business wheels, and he never allows them to lag or creak for want of it. Hard times and poor business are incentives to increasing his advertising rather than any argument to him for cutting it down. It will pay the semi-occasional advertiser to ponder over the pusher’s success. - 5 A Monthly. Rossman-Rhea Wedding. Elmer J. Rossman of this city and Miss Gertrude J. Rhea of Thorp caught their friends napping, and last Wednesday, August 24, at 10 a.m., were quietly married by Rev. A. B. Soule of Stanley, at the home of the bride’s parents, County Superintendent of Schools A. O. Rhea and wife. The ceremony was simple and was witnessed by only the family of the bride and by the groom’s sister, Miss Mabel Rossman of this city. Immediately following the brief ceremony the bridal pair were driven to Stanley where they took the train for Minneapolis where they spent their honeymoon with relatives and friends, returning to Greenwood Tuesday moning of this week. Mr. and Mrs. Rossman will keep house at the home of the groom’s mother and will be at home to the friends after October first. Both of the guilty parties are well known to Gleaner readers who have none but the best wishes for them. The groom is one of the Fricke Rossman Co., general merchants, while the bride has been for several years the successful teacher of the second primary department of the local school.

Letter to H.W. Hunt, Greenwood, Wis. Dear Sir: A gallon saved is $4 or $5 earned. Two gallons saved is $8 or $10 earned. Three gallons saved is $12 or $15 earned. Four gallons saved is $16 or $20 earned. Five gallons saved in $20 or $25 earned It costs $3 or $4 a gallon to paint, besides the paint; as much to brush-on a gallon of worthless paint as Devoe. Mr. Ezra Rathmell, Williamsport, Pa., always used 11 gallons of mixed paint for his house; Devoe took 6. Yours truly -F.W. Devoe & Co. New York and Chicago P.S. C. C. Hoehne sells our paints

Another Clark County Crop That Clark County is adapted to the raising of as many different crops as any section of the state has been proven many times over by as many different demonstrators. Recently we visited the field of Rudolph Johnson who lives south of Stanley in the town of Worden. This patch contains about two acres of as fine appearing tobacco as we ever noted growing anywhere. It is his second crop from the same patch. In fact it is the second crop the ground has had on it.

Mr. Johnson came from Westby, Vernon county, five years ago. There he raised and worked with tobacco for twenty years and knows the business from A to Z. He says this country is admirably adapted to the culture of the weed and, if anything, produces a finer and better grade than is raised below, owing largely to the excellent soil and moisture conditions. He has on hand about 1100 pounds that she raised last year, a sample of which we have on exhibition in the office.

With the experiments that have been made by many others in the county and that is being made on a large scale by parties near Stanley there can be no doubt that this will be a valuable source of income for Clark county farmers in the near future.
