Dorchester, Wis. - July 2, 1915

The Abbotsford Electric company are making good progress with the electric line into this village. Poles have been distributed to within a mile south of town and a large consignment of cross-arms were unloaded here this week.

Emil Fenski was badly burned on his left shoulder and back Monday afternoon when a bolt of lightning struck his home setting fire to the house. Dr. F. P. Foley was immediately called and gave him medical attention and he is now up and around again. Neighbors assisted in putting out the fire in the house before much damage was done.

Ben H. Blanc, formerly of this village, but now making his home at Appleton, arrived here Monday afternoon on his motorcycle and spent a short visit here with friends before continuing on his way to Menomonie to visit during the Fourth with his mother. From there he expects to go on to Duluth to visit with a sister before returning to Appleton.

Gust Ridderbusch returned recently from the southern part of the state where he had been operating a cheese factory up to the time of the terrific windstorm which struck southern Wisconsin, and which destroyed the factory he was working in.
