Greenwood - July 28, 1882
Editors Times: Charley Gates and J. L. Stanard, of Neillsville, have just arrived in town in the interests of the A. O. U. W. They were sent here by J. A. Parkhurst, who has charge of the order in this district. Stanard and Gates are securing charter member names with a view to establishing a lodge in this village.
F. J. Smith, local agent for J. H. Weston, is here closing as fast as practicable the business of the late firm of Weston & Schofield.
Thos. Withee from La Crosse is company with Dan Kenedy just drove into town, also J. L. Gates, proprietor of the Neillsville Bank.
If business in Neillsville is as quite as it is here today, any of them have ample time to journey to sister towns for a little recreation.
Miss Maggie Donelly, from Canada, who has been spending several weeks in town visiting her uncle, Len Eastman, left yesterday for her home in Canada. Although but a few weeks on our shores, she could appreciate the greatness of our commonwealth. We hope she will, like all other good people from over boundary line, sooner or later return to this place again, where she will find a cordial welcome among her new found friends.
W. H. Polleys and wife, of Melrose, are visiting with A. S. Eaton’s people.
Len Eastman keeps the celebrated Case Wagon made in Wonewoc; he also has a consignment of the White hall wagons en route for this place and he is selling them like hot biscuit. He has a fine line of buggies and platform wagons and can fit you out with anything that runs on wheels.
The blacksmith business has been good all summer, with no let up.
G. W. Hubbell has just received two more tram cars from Spencer, and is fitting them up today. He says that with the four cars he can deliver forty-eight cords stave bolts per day at the mill.
E. A. Eaton, and wife were down yesterday, taking in the tea party.
