Sauerkraut City (29 September 1911)


Henry Stecker is busy laying a cement walk for Harry Eide from his house to the factory.  If you have any work like this call on Hank.


I wonder if the Town of York wouldn’t just as soon exchange a 6 inch plank for that foot plank on the corner just east of the Granton road. To understand it a little better, at that little bridge at the Advent Church.  It probably would fit the bridge a little better and the ones that have to cross it.


A large crowd gathered along the road Sunday evening and then they decided that they would drop in on Fred
Dopp and celebrate his birthday.  There was a crowd of fifty or sixty that took possession of the house. He was looking for a shot gun when Wm. Wagner who was prepared for such things, put the rope on his leg and found a hole in the floor to run that rope through and tied him down till he said he would be good. Then they all stayed and went home early.


Mrs. Anna Reisner started to fill silo Tuesday. Albert Marg furnished the power.


Wm. Wagner was a Marshfield last Friday and came home with a new harness. Of course it is a bumane.  If you have horses that get galled ask him for information.


Mr. and Mrs. Gus Marg and Mrs. Mary Fischer visited at E. Neinas’ Sunday.


Alfred Bartz traded horses with Davis & Paulson, last week.


Wonder where Alfred Reisner was when the rest of us were at the party.


I have been trying to get a new writer for this place, but it doesn’t seem as though it is going to work.  Come on now, the Editor is looking for some news ever week.  Just make a start and don’t let someone else put on the finishing touch.


What do you think of Chili?  There are parties from near Neillsville who bring their grain to get the highest market price.
