He grew up on the farm, acquiring a thorough knowledge of agriculture, and formed his present association with his brother Herman, three years ago. Besides farming the 200 acres mentioned, they kept 200 more in timber and pasture land, and are doing a profitable, business as general farmers.

WOODMEN VISITING GREENWOOD
CAMP ENJOYS THE HOSPITALITY OF FAIRCHILD WOODMEN.
Thirty-Four Strong Have a Neighborly Time and Come Back Well Pleased, though Very Sleepy A List of the Visiting Neighbors We Don t Tell All They Did.
Weather had no effect on the crowd of Modern Woodmen that went to Fairchild last Friday noon, taking the Fairchild limited. They were bound to have fun if they had to stay up all night for it. From all reports since they came home some of them were up to all sorts of antics, from going riding with the fair ladies of that fair place, to turning beds into Woodmen goats and initiating some of the members over again. They even played so much that August Beyer swears he wont go with the crowd again. They beat him out of every wink of sleep, just when he wanted it the worst way.
Yet despite all their varied experiences among themselves the Greenwood Woodmen are unanimous that the Fairchild camp of Modern Woodmen are all right in entertaining and giving a genuine welcome to visiting neighbors. Five candidates were put through the mysteries of Woodcraft, the work being done by both the Fairchild and Greenwood camps, each taking their turn.
At eleven o'clock an adjournment was taken when luncheon was served to all present. It was a great season of jollity and fraternity. Word had been sent over that they might expect about twenty-five neighbors from here. When they arrived at Fairchild there were over thirty. But Fairchild camp was equal to the occasion, like true Woodmen and took the strangers in, clothed them and fed them in true neighborly fashion. Following is a list of those who attended. We are not sure that the list is complete, but we believe it is. If any are omitted, it is unintentional on our part, and if necessary, we are willing to take an extra hour's ride on the goat, providing we are allowed to use our own riding saddle.
These are the visiting neighbors:
