Mrs. W. Marvin left for Perkinstown last Tuesday, where her husband is at work. They will make it their home for some time.


We failed to mention last week the purchase, by Dr. Thomas, of the fancy prize winning drivers recently owned by E. D. Webster of Neillsville. It is no doubt the prettiest team in this section. F. M. Carter is chaperon and truly the outfit is a pair to draw to.


Editor Pratt, of the Fairchild Observer, was a Gleaner caller while in town Monday. He is now sole proprietor of that paper and is getting out a newsy sheet, which is being appreciated by Fairchild business men.


A. W. Calway was in Neillsville Monday attending the Thomas trial. The doctor failed to produce his diploma and Justice Dudley fined him $50 and cost for illegal practising of medicine.


John Franklin and family have moved onto the Dewey farm south of Neillsville. The Gleaner follows them to keep them in touch with this end of the county.


Mrs. R. Schofield's singing class will meet next Monday evening at the Unitarian chapel to practice for her concert to be given in the near future.


The Ladies' Guild meet this afternoon to sew for Mrs. Widgerson. Next Wednesday they will sew for Mrs. Henry Johnson. At this time they also elect delegates to attend the state Unitarian convention at Neillsville next month.


E. T. Bailey and family have moved into Mrs. Hall's building. Mrs. Williams has moved into her own building, vacated by Mr. Bailey.


Julius and Ernest Steinert were down the first of the week with lumber to build a stable on the rear of Ernest's lot.


Rev. W. T. Hendren will preach in the Twenty-Six road chapel next Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The sacrament of the Lord's supper will also be observed at that time.


Deputy Bank Examiner G. D. Bartz was in town Wednesday looking over the Greenwood State Bank and found everything O.K. In speaking afterward of the condition of affairs, he said a better condition than is usual in country banks. He reported that the reserve fund was three times larger than the law calls for, which shows a careful and conservative management.


Mrs. Schofield is making arrangements to give her concert in the near future for the benefit of the Baptist church.


Mrs. Ed Miller returned Friday from her visit in Grant county.


Mrs. Alice Armstrong of Pennsylvania, is visiting her brother, Hastings Baird. She arrived Friday from Pueblo, Col., where she has been visiting.


Marion Van Tassel, wife and son, of Shamrock, Wis., are visiting her brother. S. R. Kelly, and family.


A male quartet, consisting of A. E. Jordan, Ed Wollenberg, A. W. Calway and Conrad Wellen, has been organized and are meeting for practice one night each week. Mrs. R. Schofield is helping the boys. If the young ladies hear music at their windows they will know who the four sons of Orpeus are.


Frank Waseca left for Perkinstown Tuesday to work.


Mrs. Hadley of Mondovi, has been visiting at the home of J. R. Williams.


Principal Veeder received a short visit from his friend Prof. Bowman of Prentice Monday night.


Herbert Clute left on the Central Monday morning for New York City, where he will take charge of 200 colonies of bees for a large aplarist and take them to Cuba. There Mr. Clute will pick up colonies and run an apiary this winter, this being the honey season there.


The wedding of Harry R. Livesay to Agnes K. Alton took place at eight o'clock Wednesday evening at the home of the bride's parents, west of Greenwood, Rev. W. T. Hendren performing the ceremony. The immediate family and a goodly number of friends were present. The bride's sister, Mary Borigo, was bride's maid and Eugene McMahon acted as best man. A large number of valuable presents were received. The couple left on the Central yesterday morning for Fairfield, Mich., where they will spend a few weeks among the groom's relatives.


L. Ayer of Unity, bought an eighty of Cornell university land in the town of Beaver Wednesday.


Chas. Anderson and Frank Smith of Hibbing, Minn., last week purchased a forty each of the Cornell land from the Bank.


If it was not that it would be a give-away on Chas. Cummings, Carl Richeleu, Hastings Baird and another fellow who has his name in the paper too often to bear repetition, we would like to tell how they were taken into custody last Friday night by Sheriff Tufts and locked in the jail. But it was not because any were full. It was because the hotels were full. Sheriff Tufts will always have a warm room in the hearts of those four.
