Claire Walker, a young lad 14 years of age, residing on the north side, had' an exciting time on the- Wisconsin Central tracks east of town one day last week. Claire, in company with some other children of his age, was going berrying. In crossing a piece of track where cattle guards were laid, young Walker's shoe got wedged between the irons in such a manner that he could not extricate his foot. At this time a freight train hove in sight just ahead and as it was impossible to get the shoe out, good sense prevailed and under orders of Herbert Brackendorf, the foot was removed from the shoe, all of which was accomplished in the nick of time to avert an accident.


There are numbers of people who are under an erroneous impression. They think that they never control enough money to start a bank account. In this they are mistaken. We solicit small accounts as well as large. And we handle the business of both with our best care. We believe that you ought have a bank account and we offer you our services. First National Bank of Marshfield, Wis. A team belonging to Joseph Schneider of Hewitt, caused a lively time on East Fourth street last Friday .evening at about 6:30 o'clock. The ;team was hitched to a four-seated buggy, containing besides Joseph Schneider, his brother John and the latter's wife and daughter. At a point just opposite Esser's blacksmith shop the buggy struck a rut which caused the team to become frightened and run away and in their mad Right an act of Providence seemingly intervened in behalf of the occupants as the tugs unaccountably became unhooked which separated the horses from the vehicle and averted what might have been a - serious accident. In the separation the driver was pulled from his seat and fell to the ground where he laid for some time before recovering—either from the shock or other causes that were quite obvious, and a prime factor in allowing the team to get away. The horses continued their homeward course until they reached Henry Waggoner's residence where they made a dash into that gentleman's yard and were caught and driven back to the scene of the accident by Parney Casey.


If you are troubled with dizzy spells, headache, indigestion, constipation, Hollister's Rocky Mountain Tea will make you well and keep you well. If it fails get your money back. That's fair. 35 cents. Sexton. Bros.
