James Bibby is a patriotic, citizen who celebrated this year's Fourth as he never did before--and probably never will again. He decided that a bachelor's life was not the most congenial so he and Ivy Hetzel drove to Neillsville and were quietly made one for the rest of their days.


The glorious Fourth was celebrated in Greenwood very quietly this year. Fire works in the evening was the most exciting event, unless it was the wind and rain storm early in the evening. The Big Store people gave a display of fire works from the roof of their store and many who saw it say it beats Marshfield's display. We didn't see either, so won’t vouch for the truthfulness of the statement.

The street committee are putting in their lamps, so that in a short time our little town will have a more inviting appearance at night time. It will certainly be much more safe and convenient.


J. N. Leach, the artist, will make a special day for taking cabinet photos Saturday, July 7th, 14th and 21st, one of those beautiful family records given away with every order for one dozen cabinets taken on those days. I will discontinue work at Greenwood July 21st, so be sure and come in and have those pictures by that date.


Henry Johnson's new house is being rushed right to the front. Smith and Shoemaker are doing the work and are laying themselves out on it, making a splendid job of it. The boys are hustlers in putting up houses. They have a neat picture of H. W. Hunt's house, which they built two years ago, hung up in the post office building, advertising their work.


Painters are very busy everywhere in and around Greenwood these days and the improvements made in this direction add greatly to the general appearance. A. M. White, Johnnie Kippenhan, G. W. Bishop, P. M. Stevens, Mrs. Fricke, John Bryden, Otto Behrens, Dr. Churchill are among those in town that we think of who have thus improved their property. Let the good work go on.


While H. Bacon of Hancock, was visiting friends, he and a friend went out Sunday for a little sport, and while shooting at a mark the revolver accidentally discharged and the bullet entered the calf of the left leg, leaving a very dangerous wound.

Chas. Lizar is back from the West and looks like the same old Charlie, except that he is much reduced in flesh. He is not an enthusiast in his remarks about the West and he rather inclined to the notion that Wisconsin is a pretty nice place to live.


The Greenwood State Bank has recently put in a handy piece of furniture in the way of a vault cabinet for holding papers, books etc. It contains 240 pigeon holes, large and small and is made throughout of white pine. Will Smith is the builder and it’s a handsome piece of carpenter work.


Dr. Churchill reports that Free Raymond's little three-year-old son, while going into a stall with one of the horses Monday, in some way became severely cut and bruised about the face, but is getting along nicely at present. It is not known how the accident occurred, whether the boy fell under the horse and was stepped on or was kicked.


The stores, for some reason, have gone back to the old order of things and are keeping open every evening during the six days of the week. It is a cause for regret that this course has been taken; for it means that clerks and proprietors all are obliged to put in long hours with little opportunity for outside recreation.


A Unitarian convention is to be held in Greenwood next Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Rev. T. G. Owen of Arcadia, is expected today to make local arrangements for the sessions. He will be assisted during the meetings by Rev. Southworth of Chicago, Rev. Niles of Menomonie, and by a speaker from Madison. The sessions will likely be held in Woodmen hall.
