The country around Veefkind and Spokeville is rapidly developing into large farms and fine residences. The settlers who come in seem very much satisfied with Clark county, and they may rest assured that Clark county is a good home for the poor as well as the industrious and intelligent class of people.
G. Phillip's neighbors and friends gave him a pleasant call Thursday, Aug. 9, in the form of a surprise, it being his birthday. He received several presents, accompanied by a sound threshing. After wishing him many more birthdays, they went home rejoicing with the thought of what occurred.
John Hendrickson was a welcome caller at the Larson Sunday school Sunday.
G. Phillips does not have to come to town on foot any more, as he now drives a new horse and road cart.
We were informed that Frank Buttke and wife are rejoicing over the arrival of a new son. Also a boy at the home of Iver Hembre the day before.
Albert Stabnaw has a new housekeeper. It is his sister who lately came from Sauk county.
Mr. and Mrs. G. Phillips were the guests of Mrs. P.'s uncle, Philo Boise of Spokeville, last Tuesday.
