Local Happenings

Miss June Duerkop had an operation at the Krohn Clinic at Black River Falls last Wednesday. She is recovering at her home near Fairchild.

Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Preisig, from near Stratford, were visitors in town last Thursday afternoon. Mr. Preisig is having a big run in his cheese factory, and finds but few opportunities for vacations. He made his office a pleasant call while in town.

O. J. Weyhmiller, county highway commissioner, was in town last Friday. Mr. Weyhmiller reported that shaling of county trunk F will be started soon. The shale will be taken from the pit on Earl Langworthy’s farm.

R. F. Willman and family drove down from Altoona Sunday to spent a few hours at home. They also visited at Aaron Johnson’s in Cleveland.

M. E. Wilding and a crew of young men were in the village Monday posting advertising for the Clark County Fair. The fair will be held Aug. 27, 28, 29, 30.

Miss Anne Baumgartner was taken quite ill while at work at the cannery Monday night. She was taken to the Krohn Clinic Tuesday forenoon for treatment.

Mr. and Mrs. Alex Michael, of Gilmanton, visited at the home of Mrs. Michael’s sister, Mrs. E. Duerkop. Their daughter Doris was with them.

Again the traffic cop! Monday evening a truck driver appeared in Judge Lawrence’s court and contributed 10 / and for wrong license.

Canning of late peas is about completed. The crop throughout this part of the state is reported only 50 per cent or less, due to weather conditions and lice. Some beans are coming in to the cannery. The vines look good with crop prospects very fair. A large pack of blueberries is being made this year.

The girls of the C. C. Club, accompanied by Mrs. Olson and two children, plan to go to Hatfield this Thursday for a few days outing at a cottage.
