Heathville (25 November 1910)


Gordon Davis, Wellie Davis and G. Leye returned from Chippewa Falls, each bringing home a deer.


Bill Smith and Howard Beaty returned from a hunt and also go their share of game.


Goethe has said there are two kinds of readers. Some enjoy without judgment, others judge without enjoyment.


Rev. Mallory of Stevens Point will be presented with a dandy Christmas gift.  Mrs. Price Lee near Granton and several ladies of Heathville numbering about ten in all were engaged in making a comforter for him last week.


Delbert Latamore is enlarging his blacksmith shop. This will make it more convenient for himself and also for his patrons.


Miss Ethel Graves has closed a successful term of school in District No. 1 Town of Fremont.


Ross Mellen, a brother of Mrs. Latamore is here on a visit.


Joe Bird is going 400 miles northeast for a hunt.  Dear is what he is after, but refusing to take a gun with him.


Nate Dubes is building a barn 30x90.  John Tucker doing the carpentry work.


Bill Zorn has the Otto fever and we wouldn’t be surprised if he would have a little run-about next summer.


John Duffy while shingling his corn crib last week fell 16 feet, striking on his feet like a cat, not injuring him a bit.  Who believes this?


Our East Lynn correspondent is as wide awake as an alarm clock. To hear him talk is just like taking a drink out of a schooner. When asked who would be the next president of Chili he said Jake Henning is good enough, but Charley Elchlipp would do just as well. This he turned into a story and said: Once upon a time I was sick and as I don’t believe in medicine unless it is from Elchlipp I ordered a minister. He found my spirit sinking rapidly and he asked me if I was not afraid to die; I told him no, I had friends in both places. So it is.  Billie helped us hang the Dutchman in N. D., just because he squealed on us for stealing his pie.  When Billie was a boy of 7 he was as energetic as a wurst maker and always was delighted by being the first boy in school.  He was then a great friend of the opposite sex and is yet.  At school time he used to make coquettish eyes at the girls and used to throw kiss balls at them.  He also loved the school marm - as most of them like to be loved. But this one being of a different caliber told Willie to save his villainous demitasses for some other time.  Willie however was a successful scholar and always on time, with exception one morning when-on his way to school the seat of his pants came in contact with a nail, thustly inviting the sunlight on him behind.  Meeting a kind hearted woman, asking her to fix his pants with a pin, he proceeded to school, being 10 minutes late that morning.  The teacher in a kind voice said, hello Willie, I see you’re behind this morning.  I know it, said Willie sobbing; the woman only had one pin.
