Heathville (11 November 1910)


If there is a shortage in grasshoppers next summer, blame an old batch in Heathville, he canned 25 thousand.


Good for East Lynn; Herman Jensen perhaps can raise rye, but the former couldn’t raise sausage out of old lady Eggert’s cellar.


Charley Guk of Gukville attended the political speech in Chili last Saturday night.


Sherman Davis since the disappearing of the bull dog is improving nicely.


D. Latamore saved Crowbait, a black horse owned by Fred Carpenter by taking a handful of gravel out of his front feet.


Jake Rogers, Wellie Davis, Gordon Davis, George Leye and Mont Eibergen are hunting near Chippewa Falls.


The famous bobbie skirt is coming in style.  Good; after a few weeks service the husband, if a farmer, can use it for a hay rack.


Melvin Hogenson is engaged in bookkeeping in Black River Falls.  He is employed by the Steinman Bros., dealers in skins and furs.


John Molamphy, former section foreman of Chili is now working on the Owen & Shepherd cut off near Black River.  John says here is where the train goes fast and don’t be a bit surprised if you see Melvin Hogenson love a beautiful little squaw.


The principal speakers at the Republican rally at Chili last Saturday night were Mr. Crosby and Mr. Schoengarth.  Those attending from Neillsville were Wilding, Ure and Huntzicker.  Mr. Crosby spoke in favor of La Follette and Taft, while Mr. Schoengarth explained the monopoly system.  But some of us perhaps have yielded blindly today, as this was election day.  But true enough, we should obey our instructions.  But who can you believe?  Perhaps if we knew all the laws of physics and chemistry this queer question of how to vote would be explained.  But we don’t, and regular rapscallions those also are who by all codes we should despise.  It would not be surprising if the Democrats would gain victory in this great squabble.
