Important news is becoming scarce it is hard to pick up anything very interesting.

Herman Montag became quite sick last week Thursday; so Dr. Houseley had to be called in attendance.  At present he is quite a little stronger and will be around again in a few days.

Herman Keiler got sick also on Friday night, so he had to take to bed.  He is also on the mend.

The Royal Neighbors had quite a pleasant Valentine party Saturday eve.  Mr. Reichert received the prize for being the best poet of this vicinity.  Baskets were sold at 50 cents a piece and coffee was served.  A very agreeable time was passed.

There is quite a bunch of bolts in this part of the country.  From Friday noon until Saturday night, over 80 cords were brought in.

The Equity shipped another car of cattle and hogs Tuesday morning.  A car of potatoes was shipped to the Chicago market Wednesday.

The cutters at Degeners are selling fast now that the sleighing is fairly good.  There are only a few left.  Better come quick and get one cheap.

Mr. Utter who bought the hardware stock of Herman Henning has sold same to a Mr. Riplinger from Osborne. The latter will sell part of the stock here    , the balance will be shipped to his store at Osborne.

There are two 7 ft. sleighs to be sold yet at Degeners, they will go cheap. Also a second hand cutter, strong and in fairly good condition.

Mrs. Ernest Montag and son Greg visited with Mr. and Mrs. Albert Degener over Sunday.  They took in the Valentine party Saturday night.

It does no harm to teach the children common courtesy and politeness.  If it doesn’t make them any better, it certainly leaves a good impression on strangers and also people of acquaintances.

The rural consolidated school will receive more attention in the future.  This village would certainly make a good center for 5 or 6 districts.
