Mr. Samson, the lumber yard manager, moved into Mrs. A. Martens house this week.

Dr. Housley now too has a cement sidewalk around his premises.

School commenced this week with Miss Furlong at the helm.

Farmers are quite busy in general, but at present they are more than busy with threshing, silo filling, potato digging, plowing and every other thing to do now. The worst of it is that the wood piles on an average are not large.

A farmer not far from here bought a sow for $82.00. The sow had 12 pigs, 10 of these pigs when 6 months old were sold for $809.00. The old sow had another litter of pigs of 13. The cost of feeding was about $200. He made a cash profit of almost $100, besides having the sow, 2 big pigs and 13 little pigs left. Sometimes there is money in raising pigs.

Potatoes are commencing to come to the potato house, especially the early potatoes. It pays to raise spuds this year. 75 to 90 cents is not a bad price righ from the soil. Bring your potatoes to the Chili house, the prices are the best that can be paid.

Mr. and Mrs. L.A. Reichert returned from their vacation trip last week.

We had a week of show here. It was quite a musical show and was well patronized.

Alwin Voelker made a last visit at home from Camp Douglas, returning Sunday morning. The balance of Wis. National Guard are now at Waco, Texas for training.

Dr. and Mrs. Engsberg of Lake Mills are visiting Mr. and Mrs. Herman Koser since Sunday.
