Al. Adams and N. C. Foster were over from Fairchild Monday laying out the ground for the lumber yard soon to be started. The material for the shed arrived yesterday and Dave Shanks has the contract to do the carpenter work which will begin at once. It will not be long now before people will be able to get anything they want in the way of lumber right here at home.


Yesterday forenoon K. Anderson suffered a stroke of paralysis on the left side and it is feared, that with his previous weak condition he will not recover. The children who were in town were at once summoned and are with him now. As we go to press he is reported as very low with little hopes of recovery.


One day recently the Misses Louise and Bertha Fricke went berrying at mile or so south of town. Instead of hitching the horse to a tree they unharnessed it and turned it into a pasture. On returning from the berry patch to go home the horse was gone, having found an open gate and come home. They then did likewise and did much as the horse did, came home on foot. To add to the mix-up Horace Brownell, who found the horse at the barn, took it back again to the rig so the girls, who, he supposed were in the woods yet, could have it to come with. Toward evening another trip had to be made down after the rig.

Though she has just installed it Mrs. W. is turning out some fine work on it already.


Weather favored the "measuring social" at Mrs. Will Palms.  Wednesday night ice cream and sherbert were in great demand. Some of the young men of the town developed wonderful height. Among the giants were Ferdie Anderson, Measuring 8 ft; Dr. Baker, Messrs. Conroy, Stair, Shrimpton and others 7 1/2 feet. But Mr. Will Dawes proves to be the tallest young man in town, standing 9 feet in his shoes, with his hat on.
