Greenwood - April 21, 1882

Editors Times: The winter’s frost has not left the ground yet, not sufficient to render plowing easy, but as the incessant rains last fall prevented any plowing being done it will be done as early as possible this spring.

The sugar crop in this vicinity is almost a failure - none of any account haying been brought to this market.

Last week we forgot to mention how serenely and happily father Moe perambulates our streets and how the boys smoked pure Havanas at his expense, sending out many a wreath of white smoke freighted with the sincere wish that his little week old boy with a girl’s name, may be a joy forever to Mr. and Mrs. Moe.

By use of the flooding dams on the main Black River, logs are daily floating past us on the great thoroughfare to its month, where they are rafted and many of them sent on down the bosom of the father of waters, the Mississippi.

Spring time has come gentle Annie, and house and year cleaning and painting will be highly in order.

Our supervisors intend to repair the main turnpike by scraping it up anew from one end of the township to the other.

B. B. Healy of La Crosse arrived in town this afternoon upon business connected with one of the our lumbermen.

Philip Rossman, one of the most stirring men of the town of Beaver, had made some money in his logging operations the past winter, while it has been otherwise, we are sorry to say, with too many of the loggers.

Will the editor of the Times, through his columns, inform many who would like to known, whether the bill prohibiting the killing of ruffed grouse and prairie chickens & c., for two years, passed both branches of the legislature during its last session and become a law.

The Geo. W. Hubbell of old is with us again and is now in the employ of Weston & Schofield. We are glad he is here.

Von Goth.
