Graf and Laffe threshed for John Provinske of the Town of Hull, last week, and when John came to figure up he found that his wheat went 16 bushels, oats 30 bushels and rye 14 bushels to the acre. A pretty good yield for this year.

There might be some talk of employing a night watchman at this place through the winter months. It is a good idea and might be the means of saving considerable property. A night watchman at Medford, last spring, would have save considerable property.

Gus. Ovart, the boss cigar maker, was 30 years old last Saturday and, as a matter of course, Gus. was hilariously happy. The band tendered him a serenade and Gus. passed around the cigars, using a brand of his own make. Everybody wishes Gus. many happy returns of that day.

Fred Bredemeyer has just received a find stock of patent life preserves, in the shape of a hoop skirt with a patent combination bustle. It is just the dandy thing for skating rinks and icy sidewalks. Every lady should provide herself with one of these before venturing to try either.

E. V. Kautsky, the Marshfield dentist, will continue to make his regular visits to Spencer, Unity and Colby, Wis. All dental work done in an artistic manner, which can be acquired by years of study and practice with good preceptor, in a well established dental office.
