Greenwood - April 23, 1882

Editors Times: Roads dry once more and the teeming hundreds are once more permitted the pleasure of traveling hither and thither at their own sweet will. It has been many a day that we have been hemmed in by mud, and it is like a gold sunset to get upon dry land once more.

The log drive had nearly come to a stand still. Pat Sheean with his crew still hold out on the man Black River, between here and the city we hear so much of, Neillsville, Wis.

Jas. Scyth and Ole Larson have formed the co-partnership under the firm name of Scyth & Larson, and have opened a saloon.

C. A. Jones has moved form our town and gone where the woodbine twineth; that is so far, we suppose he forgot to leave his post office address, or ever pay sundry little bills around town. He went away when the sun shone not, or what is more commonly termed between two days.

Last Sabbath we had the first dark sermon ever delivered in Greenwood, or rather, the first sermon ever delivered by a colored divine. It was in Schofield’s hall to a respectful audience.

John G. McKenna and Lina Huntzicker were joined in holy wedlock, yesterday morning by Rev. G. C. Andrews. Miss Huntzicker is a young lady recently from New York. The newly wedded pair have gone up on the Wis. Central R. R., but will returned to this place shortly. The very best wishes of their friends do follow them.

Last week for a little shoot, for amusement, not a competitive one, by three of the Greenwood gun club, the following score shows the result:

A. S. Easton - 16

Len Eastman - 16

Jack Smith - 26
