The groundhog must have overslept this year or he did just stick out his nose and crawled right back into the hole. At any rate winter will be with us up to the first of the month anyway.

Miss Julia Tragsdorf of Neillsville is visiting Mr. and Mrs. A. Degener this week.

At the meeting of the directors of the Chili State Bank the following officers were elected: President, E. R. Behringer; vice president, P. N. Christensen. The lot across from L. A. Reichert’s store was selected as the site to put up the bank building.

A carload of farm implements, wagons and buggies was received at Degener’s warehouse. He offers for sale at cost price 1 spring cutter and one other cutter.

Thode Harriman made a business trip to Chicago, Wednesday.

Farmers around here are buying silos for the coming season. The silos seem to be coming in use more and more.

Acme binders, mowers and horse rakes to be had at Degener’s. The best on the market in this line.

Otto Kampin who has been gone for a few days returned the first part of the week.

Mrs. Degener, daughter Vivian, Mrs. Alfred Brooks and children and Miss Julia Tragsdorf made a visit per bob sleds at Mr. and Mrs. E. Montag’s place two miles east. On the way out they stopped at Frank Gilderneck’s place thinking it was the right place. As they had passed the drive way they all piled out, unhitched the horse, backed up the sleigh, hitched up again and drove up bravely, only to find out that they were at the wrong place. They landed at the right place after all, had a good time and returned safe and sound.
