Greenwood - 29 Sept. 1882

Editors Times: Greenwood is really booming, not from shallow bubbles, but from real solid growth and business interests.

Hi, Hart, of Neillsville, is up here with his jack screws moving buildings hither and thither. He has moved A. S. Eaton’s barn from the rear of his store, south of his dwelling house.

Jack Shanks had his barn moved yesterday, across the road east of his house.

Today, Mr. Hart is moving A. W. Bailey’s furniture store south, to make room for a street in the vacated place, opening up A. S. Eaton’s forty acres which have just been platted by C. M. Breed, of Neillsville, Wis. Desirable village lots are now ready for sale on the most favorable terms. Many are already engaged in advance of the plot. It is a healthy addition to the growing interests of Greenwood.

Mrs. Jacob Huntzicker has purchased a millinery shop of A. S. Eaton, one door north of the post office, and will open, in a few days, a new stock of goods in the millinery line, direct from Chicago. Dress making will be in connection, under the management of Miss Mary White.

R. Schofield is building quite extensively over his shaded grove.

Saturday last Ira Bowerman had his leg broken below the knee, by a horse falling on him; so he has a three month’s job indoors.

Rev. C. C. Swartz had left for Spencer, to open up new fields of labor in his calling. The Greenwood charge is to be supplied by a new man, ever in this circuit before, Rev. Austin, of Michigan.

H. M. Weston and A. S. Eaton were chosen delegates from this town to the county convention, which meets at Neillsville tomorrow.

George Andrews and wife have returned from their Canadian trip, pleased to go to their native home, but more pleased to return to the home of their adoption, and the fairest land God’s bright sun ever graced.

Ed Burch has gone to Chicago, for goods for the firm of Jones Bro.’s & Johnson.

Len Eastman is place an engine in his wagon shop.

Fed Gallop, of Galesville, Wis., a practiced tinner and hardware man had engaged with A. S. Eaton, and arrived on the ground this evening.

John Shanks is soon to move in town. By the way, he purchased three blooded cattle in La Crosse county a few days ago - two calves and one yearling, paying $75 each. It looks like a large price to pay for a calf, but he was offered $100 for one of them on his way home, which proved the wisdom of his selection. They are beauties.

More laborers and carpenters are very much needed in this town, at good wages.

We will adjourn until tomorrow evening, and see how the defeated candidates feel.

Von Goth.
