A promising young man of Eagle Grove recently presented his better half with a piano lamp on her birthday.
He was flattered when she told him she intended to give it his name until he asked her the reason for so peculiar a proceeding.
"Well" she said, "you know dear, it has a good deal of brass about it, it is handsome to look at, requires a good deal of attention, is remarkably brilliant, is sometimes unsteady on its legs, is liable to explode when only half full, flares up occasionally, is always out at bed time and is bound to smoke."
J. M. Skinner delivered a very interesting Temperance lecture at the M. E. Church Thursday evening. Mr. Skinner is one of the most entertaining speakers who has appeared before the people of Unity, for nearly two hours he held the attention of the audience by his fair and impartial remarks, interspersed with illustrative stories and flashed of wit.
Hull Wisconsin Feb 13,’03
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Fink and daughter of Crows Landing, Cal., are visiting the family of Mrs. Finks’ brother, Mr. John Hirsch in the town of Hull. They are enjoying the fine sleighing, riding out every day viewing the different sections of county, and express themselves as well pleased with the scenery and beauties of Northern Wisconsin. Monday accompanied by friends they drive out to visit the logging camp of Connor Co. arriving there at 11:30 a.m. alighting at the door of the cook department. Mr. George Guenther, he being a jolly good natured fellow extended a cordial reception to all, and on entering they were greatly surprised and much pleased with his excellent cuisine having two tables ready for dinner for 66 men. His invitation to dine was gladly accepted and Mr. Fink says the bill of fare was equal to the hotels out west. Through the kindness of Mr. Baltus, the foreman, they were shown some of the large load of logs ready to be hauled to the landing and indeed it was a most wonderful sight for Californians to witness. Mr. Fink purchased some views to carry home, one being a load of 7,000 ft of hemlock logs.
