No news has appeared from this place for several weeks. Their absence was due to several reasons, 1st, the writer was told that no one read them anyway; 2nd, so much was happening that it was hard to decide what to put in and what to leave unsaid. But 3rd, and perhaps the more logical reason was that an unusual press of work has taken up all the correspondent's time.
Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Nudd of Lena, Ill., spent part of their honeymoon at Willard, going from here to Milwaukee. While here they were royally entertained at the homes of Wm. Dammeier and A.C. Altenbern.
John Olson and his four helpers came Monday morning and are now busily engaged in erecting a new house for A.L. Clair. The Greenwood Heading and Lumber Co. has secured the contract to finish the complete bill and shipped a car of lumber in on the Saturday previous.

A number of young people from Greenwood had a picnic at Willard one evening last week.

Mr. Walters, the Greenwood Plasterer, was here Thursday and secured the contract to plaster the house of R.R. Thomas and A.L. Clair.
