Janesville Settlement (13  Jun 1918)

Mr. and Mrs. A. Flagg gave a farewell party Thursday evening in honor of Miss Laura Wendt. The Janesville Settlement people presented her with a beautiful white toilet set to show her that they are all very sorry to lose her, and to show their appreciation of her good work here, both in the school and the Red Cross. Miss Wendt is a good teacher and tried to do her duty in every way. This was her second term in this district and we cannot speak too highly of her. There was a large crowd present from Willard, Globe, Greenwood, Eaton Center and Christie, and all report a fine time.

Mr. and Mrs. Louis Barton and Miss Helen Chadwick of Christie called at M.M. Bahl’s Sunday.

Russell Hatton has been very sick for a week, but is better at this writing.

Miss Laura Wendt closed her school Friday with a picnic after two terms of successful teaching.

Roger Dillenbeck has a trailer for his car, a real up-to-date one, too. Last spring he added a muffler for himself, a hood for his friend and lots of rattles for the kids, but the trailer keeps them all guessing. We wonder what that means.

Al. Flagg purchased a fine young horse of Lew Dimler last Friday.

Mrs. Wm. Rowert, Miss Inez Clintsman and Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Keefe called at F. Hatton’s Sunday.

The Globe Cheese Co. had a whey separator installed in the factory on Monday.

David Moorhead was a Willard called Saturday evening.

Mr. and Mrs. C. Hatton and son, Mrs. Chas. Bostwick and Mr. and Mrs. S.B. Flagg spent Sunday at Al Flagg’s.

Ben Stanley and family and Mr. and Mrs. Len Shaw of Christie were seen in our vicinity Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Keefe spent Sunday evening with Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Churkey.

Donald Hatton had the misfortune to spill a bowl of hot jello on his arm Thursday, burning him quite badly.

Erick Schoenherr of Globe was a caller in this vicinity last Wednesday evening.

Mrs. M.M. Bahl was a Willard caller Friday.

Evan Hatton spent Sunday with Roger Dillenbeck. Some of the folks think that Evan has an interest in the new trailer.

The Halle children are the proud owners of a fine Shetland pony and a buggy.

Frank Blecka was in this vicinity Thursday.

Mrs. Moorhead and children, Annabel, Loretta and John, and Mrs. Chas. Churkey called at F. Hatton’s Friday afternoon.

John Schmidt and Carl Davey called on Rose Schumer Sunday evening.

Joseph Buettner made a business trip to Minneapolis Saturday on account of not getting the Geiser tractor and threshing machine. He found that the Geiser Tractor Co. had to close up on account of shortage of help, so could not fill the order. So Joe had purchased an Emerson and Brandingham tractor and an Advance Rumerly threshing machine. He expects the tractor next week and the threshing machine later. Joseph is fast becoming an up-to-date farmer and this new outfit will be a big help and improvement to his farm.

Orville Dimler spent Sunday evening at the Loeffler home.
