Marshfield, Wisconsin, Local News

Hans Ebbee, aged sixteen, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Ebbee, died on March 30, 1882, of diphtheria.

Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Brooks were presented with a little bundle on April the first. It proved to be a girl.

The younger son of Sheriff Phillpot, of Neillsville, was poisoned one day last week, by taking the contents of a bottle of cough-mixture, and for several hours the case looked serious for the little fellow, but by hard work was saved.

The entertainment given at River's Opera house on Tuesday evening proved to the people of Marshfield the necessity of a larger and much better arranged hall for theatres and concerts. Some enterprising man should at once erect one that would seat comfortably 1,000 people.

The Spencer Tribune man gets on his car because THE TIMES noticed his tramping expeditions and explains clearly: "We publish a paper for the benefit of our readers and patrons, and are making every effort to give them all the news in this vicinity, therefore we are compelled to be on the move. Good idea, but do you publish the "latest" news, if so, how does it happen that your paper as well as nearly all THE TIMES exchanges last week contained several items of news that THE TIMES published two weeks ago? How is that for enterprise? Besides, you are decidedly "Oph" the editor of the THE TIMES is also on the move and tries not to publish news two or three weeks old.


Gus. Homested, we are sorry to learn, contemplates a business trip to Florida; we hoped that he would settle down and stay here.

Mrs. S. A. Cook is enjoying a visit at her old home in Stockbridge.

A. H. McCabe is out of town looking up a job or a place to start into business.

Jos. Wicker has sold his farm, but intends to live in town during the summer.

The conversational topic for the last week here, is the town election in Brighton; two tickets were out championed by Messrs. F. D. Darling and Wm. Crawford as chairman. The
Crawford ticket was elected by a small majority. We are unable to give the names of those elected. In the town of Unity, the issue was between W. Woodruff and C. Ayers, which resulted in the election of C. Ayers as chairman.

The winter term of the High School closed last Saturday for a vacation of two weeks.

Our people turned out enmasse last Friday night and surprised Mr. and Mrs. Homested. All had a jolly good time, notwithstanding the April Fool Scheme in the morning.

C. H. Clark, of Marshfield, and A. B. Barney, of Spencer, were in town Thursday.

THE editor of THE TIMES dined at the Forest House at Unity on Wednesday last, with the new landlord,
Mr. E. F Bowen. We with others were late, but had no difficulty in finding enough to appease
our in ward cravings for the good things, so much in keeping with
their accustomed good taste. THE TIMES extends a welcome to the weary traveler feeling assured that
all will, be treated in a hospitable manner.
