We are all enjoying the cold weather, but it was not too cold for that grand old bird the stork on Saturday night.  He visited the Wm. Bouska home and left a 12 pound boy.

Mrs. Wm. Schlinsog who fell and broke a lower limb is getting along nicely.

The school (bad copy) was a success.  Our celebrated auctioneer Ernest Schuelke got all the money in sight for the baskets.  Charlotte Manning won the spelling contest, and Miss Nickle wishes to thank all those who contributed.

A surprise was pulled off Thursday eve on Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Schlinsog, it being their 30th year wedding anniversary.  The evening was spent in games and music.  Kurth and Manning are still crowing over the six straight games they won and claim they can duplicate.

Paul Roger has been singing the familiar song, “I wonder why and I wonder why” but the cause has been solved.  Ernest Schuelke is a frequent caller.

Mr. and Mrs. Richard Kurth entertained a number of friends Sunday.  The oysters were fine.  Manning said it was heaven enough for him when his plate was filled the seventh time.

Chas Schuelke delivered a load of wheat to Neillsville this week.

Miss Bertha Worchel who has been entertaining the grippe is able to sit up alone now.

Geo. Wilding and Geo. Marden ran against their waterloo at the card party with several straight goose eggs.  But they finally tired their opponents out and won the eighth game.  We would suggest that they get a few pointers from Uncle Doolittle and Settmore.

Mr. Kops was given a surprise and house warming Sunday evening.  A number of friends gathered in a pleasant evening spent in various games and music.  Mr. Kurth and Mr. Manning showed the young folks some special steps in the waltz game.

Arthur Kurth travels south from the corners now.  He claims it is better sleighing and warmer through the timber.

Mrs. Bertha Keller and Mrs. Carl Schlinsog visited at the Wm. Schlinsog home Sunday.

The anti-smokers league is progressing fine under the able management of Chas. Marden and Hilton(bad copy).  New members have been added.  Hilton claims he would not smoke again for a farm, but he did not say whether it would be any extra inducement if the farm was well stocked and equipped with all modern improvements, running water, etc.

Valentine Day was observed here.  A large amount of curious looking streaks of paint changed hands, sentimental and others that were not, especially those that fit, others hurt.
