That much talked of undefeated Ridge baseball team, with Ziebell of Neillsville as pitcher, met their Waterloo at Shortville Sunday when they played our baseball team and were defeated by a score of 7-8, and which might have been more had the game been finished. However, it was a good game and both teams made a fine showing.

The Misses Bernice Irish and Hazel Cramer attended the dance at Granton Thursday night.

Mrs. Frank Tupper and Mrs. John Wall of Evansville are here visiting relatives.

Feutz Bros. autoed to Marshfield Saturday afternoon and attended the cheese makers convention there that night.

Irma and Clyde Nelson of Ladysmith and Ralph Nelson of Neillsville are here visiting at the Stevens’ home.

All the young folks around here attended the barn dance at Ross Galbreath’s Saturday night and they report a most enjoyable time.

One of the worst storms of the season visited us on Monday afternoon. The rain came down in torrents and the ground was white with hail stones.
