Will Hanke returned home from Peoria, Ill. on Thursday.

Ray Lightfoot of Fairchild came back to work again Wednesday. He is working for Geo. Hintz and Aaron Altenburg.

Steve Legat was in Neillsville Monday and Tuesday. Wonder what he went after. Maybe he found an answer to his advertisement.

Mr. McGonigal and Mrs. Zenz of Loyal were in Willard Sunday.

Mrs. D.S. Hoisinger has been quite sick for the past two weeks.

Mrs. Joseph Chap and daughter Beatrice of Fairchild were here Wednesday, returning home Thursday noon.

Some of our young men would have gone to the wrestling match in Owen if they hadn't got stung.

A genuine old fashioned spelling school was well attended here last Friday night. Harvey Long proved to be the champion of the ciphering match. Ask Ray Lightfoot if he knows how to spell "busy." The inhabitants of Willard think it would improve the spelling somewhat to practice every Friday night and will probably try it.

Miss Grace Arquette has begun to practice as a beauty specialist here.

Wm. Dammier, Mr. Thomas and Mr. Justin were in Greenwood Friday.

Notice: Girls, please leave Mr. Smith alone. He says he might die if he doesn't get rest. His face now is as sour as a vinegar jar.
