Greenwood - 14 July 1882

Editors Times: Geo. W. Hubbell is apparently driving down stakes to stay in Greenwood, having brought the old school home site and is building thereon, he is remodeling and putting up additions and will soon have a good residence. We are glad to have him in our hamlet again as a resident. By way of a just tribute to Mr. Hubbell we will say that he delivered the best oration of the Fourth of July that is has been our pleasure to listen to for ten years, and none differ with me in my opinion.

L. D. Bailey, of Kansas, a brother of A. W. Bailey, is now spending a few days in town, prior to seeking new fields of operation along the northern boundaries of Dakota.

Go to H. M. Weston’s for potatoes. He has an ample supply - - three for five cents.

Dr. Thomas has built a barn and carriage house within the last two days.

H. C. LeRoy and wife, of Thorp, are down looking over the city.

Geo. B. Begley has the contract for carrying the mail from Neillsville to Withee, dating from July 1st.

Thomas R. Vine, after a continued effort of seven years has succeeded in obtaining a pension at the rate of $2 per month from Oct. 10-, 1865 to Dec. 10, 1881, and $4 per month up to the extent of over $600. Partial deafness is the grounds for which pension was secured. We are glad to see our nation’s defenders receive a reward for their services.

Mrs. B. F. Brown has returned to Altamont, Dakota. Her kind heart and generous acts in performing the sad rites in the family A. S. Eaton’s for which she was called thither will ever be greatly remembered.

The white frost glistered upon the boards this morning as the sum came up.

Tuesday last at the Republican caucus, A. S. Eaton and H. M. Weston were elected to attend the County Convention to be held on the 15th inst. In Neillsville, Wis.

Only a few as yet has commenced haying.

Last night some unknown party or parties borrowed a span of horses and democrat wagon from the barn of Jones Tompkins and forgot to register, in consequence of which papers were made out and placed in the hands of officers in Greenwood who went in search of the missing team. It was found by tracks that the team had passed through this place. About 10 o’clock today James Bryden discovered a horse feeding by the roadside half a mile this side of Hemlock Dam with a halter on it, which looked a little unusual, so he tracked it back from whence it came into the woods some dozen rods and found its mate and missing wagon, but the thieves, who could not stand the light of day, had taken the harness from the team, fed them with corn and decamped without leaving their address.
