Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Vaughan started last Friday for a visit to their old home, West Salem, La Crosse county. They will be gone about two weeks, and in their absence Dennis will have all the work in the store, and there’s lots of it.

The little red building, which has been standing the past year back of Delane’s Hotel, and used for a school house part of the time, was placed on rollers last week, and skated upon Main street, where it will be used as a tailor shop. Louis Brillion did the job.

H. Mahar has moved his saloon into the brick building on the corner of West and Second streets and will be happy to meet his old friends and new at that place. He has fixed it up in good shape and everything will be made as pleasant to customers as possible.

Mr. Ed. Tolford reached this city last week, from the silver mines northwest of Lake Superior, bringing with him some large and beautiful specimen’s of silver. He will move his family this week, as well as the family of Mr. Kirkland, who is heavily engaged in the mines. Since he returned he has been busy packing the house’ old effects of both families, and declares it to be a harder job than mining. We trust that health and wealth will wait on them in the new home they are going to.

ANOTHER VICTIM: Black River has added another victim to its turbid flood in the person of Willie Hutchings, son of Samuel Hutchings, who lives about three miles south of this city. Last Sunday afternoon, in company with several other young men, he went into the river, bathing, and in attempting to swim across a deep eddy, was taken with cramp and sunk. His body was in the water nearly an hour before it was recovered. His funeral was held at the school house near his father’s residence on Monday afternoon, Rev. W. T. Hendren, conducting the services. His death is a severe blow to the family, breaking up the home and leaving a father, mother, elder brother and two sisters to mourn over his early death. He was 20 years of age, and was giving bright promise of vigorous manhood, but death touched him and he sleeps. He who tempers the winds to the shorn lambs, will sustain the weeping relatives in their terrible, sudden bereavement.
