John Ziglinski is alarmingly ill since he suffered the 3rd stroke of paralysis on Sunday.

Elgie Slocomb is here from Beach, N.D., since Monday and will spend the winter with his sister, Mrs. Geo. West.

Mr. and Mrs. Will Kurth and Mrs. Arthur Grassman, autoing to Marshfield Tuesday, had a narrow escape from death when just a mile this side of Marshfield their car skidded and overturned, breaking a wheel, the windshield and otherwise injuring the car, while the occupants escaped with but slight bruises. They telephoned into the city for help and had their car towed into a garage where it was soon repaired and made safe for their return trip, which they made without further mis-adventure that evening.

Our school will give their Christmas program tonight, Friday.

Mr. and Mrs. Otis Slocomb, Mrs. Will Kurth and Miss Weingarten autoed down to Shortville and heard Forest Calway give a good patriotic address for the Red Cross benefit Wednesday evening. A basket social followed the speech and netted a good sum for the cause.

Mrs. Clemens Kuechenmeister who has been quite indisposed the past two weeks is now somewhat improved and up and about the house again.
