Truman Davis had the misfortune to lose a 3-year old colt last Thursday afternoon by the top of a straw stack falling on top of it.

Arthur Lammers is a kind hearted soul. So last week while in Neillsville he came across a young man with a horse, an empty pocket book and a great desire to see his best girl, who lives in Wausau. Arthur soon settled that by buying the horse which he says is a fine beast with great marks (which were made by the harness.)

Mrs. Geo. Huntley visited her children in York Center Friday and was accompanied home by three of her grand-daughters who remained until Sunday when their parents came after them.
