Mrs. Sam Reniking returned from Milwaukee yesterday, after a two weeks visit. Sam is happy now.

Miss Gertie Ring accompanied her cousin, Mr. Norman Hopkins, to his home in Fort Atkinson, Monday. She will spend her vacation there.

Mrs. Samuel Freeman, of Black River Falls, was in the city last week, visiting her daughter, Mrs. Post, at the O’Neill House

Sheriff Tolford started for Waupun, Monday night, with Frank Younglove, who was sentenced to two years for stealing jewelry from his stepmother.

J. J. McGillroy, superintendent of the Price Manufacturing Company, crossed his perambulating extremities under the O’Neill House tables last Saturday.

Ira Niles has moved out of the Hewett house on to the Rogers farm, west of town, and Fred Whitcomb has moved into the house vacated by Mr. Niles.

Mr. R. Kountz, accompanied by his little daughter Kittie, started for Fort Madison, Iowa, on legal business, last week, but on reaching Madison, Wis., received a dispatch stating that it would not be necessary for him to come on. This was a great disappointment to Kittie, and the man who sent that dispatch does not stand very high in her regard.

James Coggswell, who plays the important role of "devil" in the Rep. and Press office, got himself in hot water last Monday. In attempting to blow off the engine, the blow-off value suddenly blew out and a stream of hot water and steam struck one side of his face, scalding him quite severely. His friends will hereafter know him by the strawberry mark on his right cheek.

Wm. Ogle, who is stopping here with the intention of having a "good time until the drive commences," amused himself on Monday night by abusing and afterward striking "Jack" Dunn.

Several of our most respected and well disposed citizens were shamefully abused by a drunken bully named J. B. Clark on caucus day, (Saturday last). It is certainly to be regretted that some hundred men or more of the state militia are not stationed here, to quell all such disturbances and revenge the injured peace and dignity of our state.

Mrs. J. W. Abbott, of Sterling, wife of postmaster Abbott of that place, died after a lingering illness, on Sunday night.
