NASONVILLE NARRATIONS: In the way of improvements Nasonville is looking up. Hon. S. L. Nason is making a large addition to his house, and when completed it will be a nice and commodious farm mansion, which will make Nasonville ut on quite an aristocratic look.
Mr. Gideon Bodah has a new house up that will be very convenient for his enterprising and energetic young wife, when fully completed.

Miss Kate Hutchings, of Neillsville, closed her school at this place last Saturday. She is an excellent teacher and has given good satisfaction.
We had quite a nice and creditable entertainment at Nason’s hall Saturday night, composed wholly of home talent. Among the most conspicuous features was the graphic and eloquent dissertation of Miss Frankie Hungerford, just home from Neillsville high school. In some of its parts it was quite sublime. Her gestures and the modulations of her voice exhibited good training in elocution, which reflects much credit on the principal of the school at Neillsville. Miss Clock also spoke very well, as did several others; but the most laughable part of the entertainment was that of P. P. Clock impersonating a dentist in extracting a tooth.
HUMBIRD HUMMINGS: Among the new arrivals this week may be mentioned the new daughter which has been stay at H. M. McFarland’s since quite early Monday morning.
A. Huyck has sold the Buell farm, one-half mile from Humbird, which he purchased last fall, at an advance of about $400.
The greatest nuisance which we now have in town is about a dozen horses and colts which are running at large night and day; but we are informed that a trap will soon be sprung which will greatly surprise some of the owners of the property referred to, and we hope rid our streets of the pests.
