The worst storm that this section has experiences for years occurred Monday night. The rainfall was almost a cloudburst, and the wind and hail which accompanied it damaged crops to a considerable extent. Wind damaged the barn on the Buelow farm by blowing off part of the roof. A long building on A. C. Rosolack's farm was demolished. Seven large apple trees on the Molzhon farm were blown down and three oak trees near James Waters' residence were broken off near the round. W. E. Campbell's barn was struck by lighting Saturday morning but the damage was small. A report was circulated that the mill dam had gone out during the deluge Friday night, but was without foundation. No damage was done to the dam by the high water.

Night operator Thos. Sliter had a visit from his father from Spring Green the last of the week.

Dudly Fowler is home from Appleton for the summer vacation.

John Garber brought in an egg which was alleged to have been laid by a Plymouth Rock hen, the first of the week. The egg weighs 10 ½ ounces and measures 8 ¾ by 11 ¼ inches, and is perfectly formed. This beats any story we have seen or heard in the size of eggs. The egg, however, turned out to be what the local ball team is liable to get in to its game with Fall Creek next Sunday.
