Marshfield in its infancy, which was only a couple of years ago, was very often the scene of fights, drunken carousals and brawls, which at time, rendered things in general unpleasant. But of late this has change and Marshfield is now with, but few exceptions, as quiet and peaceful a place as one would expect and desire. But Sunday last was one of the exceptions. The saloons were nearly all open and were completely filled with loggers and laborers from the camps about this vicinity. One fellow from Aurburndale made the boast that he could whip and --- --- --- in town, whereupon he was jumped upon by a number of the "well paralyzed" gang and would probably have been severely injured had it not been for Pete Lavigne, who very commendably interfered and saved the fellow's life. The occurrence looked of more importance than it really was, there being about two hundred men on the spot.

Felter and King have a new ad. in this issue. They are business men and will be found on hand promptly.
