Chili (5 May 1910)


The last young winter was a little hard on feelings again, but it soon passed away, leaving things in a good moist condition.  Some of the earlier seeding is said to be coming to the top, this of course needs warmer weather from now on.


Vincent Meyers made a business trip to Granton Wednesday.


Tom Gibson who is on the jury at Neillsville was home on a furlough Tuesday evening, returning to Neillsville Wednesday morning.


The Business Men’s Association have commenced and organized for the Memorial Day exercises.  Committees have been appointed who will go to work immediately to get things going for a good celebration if the weather permits.  The program will be given out later.  In the last few years, we have had very good celebrations of this great day, and the organization will try to make the day equal to those of proceeding years and if possible, some better.  In the present day times, where everything is going for material progress, it needs something to make people stop and consider what has been done for our country in years gone by and implant reverence and patriotism in the hearts of the growing and coming generation.  It is so easy to forget.


Mrs. John Bailey has been quite sick the last few days.  Sunday night Dr. Schwarz was called in that heavy rain storm.


Reo Happe came to town Tuesday to visit a few days with relatives her and in the country.


Come and look over the complete line of Degener’s farm implements.  If you need anything it will pay you.  Corn planters and three kinds of corn cultivators; the prices are right


Mr. Foss of Foss Armstrong Hdw. Co. of Eau Claire made his regular trip Monday morning.


Oscar Franke is going to have his barns painted. Spechler from Nasonville is going to do the work.
