G. Phillips and wife took a sleighride out in the Darton neighborhood Wednesday for a visit with friends.

A grand time is expected at the school house Christmas eve, as an entertainment will be given by the school children.


Viola Dutcher of Greenwood, closed a very satisfactory term of school in the Larson district last Friday. She commences her second term in the district the first Monday in February.


L. Bortle and M. Trott of Greenwood, have been cutting wood for themselves on Chas. Steenberg's land.


S. R. Kelley makes a fair looking soap peddler. He reports fair success.


We met last Saturday evening on the Foster railroad track, a man with a load of skunks on his back, whom, we believe to be E. Aikens of Greenwood. Talk about your essence peddlers; they are nowhere. When he passed Tom Vine's, Mrs. Vine was outside thinking the skunks were after her chickens.


John and Guner Dyre are cutting excelsior bolts on John Dyre's land in section 24, town of Warner.


Dave Gustafson and Oliver Hendrickson are cutting wood on the land formerly owned by S. Andrews.


A good time is expected Christmas day at Thos. Vine's. We will give accounts next week.


A short time ago we were informed that Henry Grass, on his way home from Greenwood, undertook to go home by way of Gile creek. He went through the woods east of Mr. Goodwin's farm, and after traveling two or three hours, came out on a road nearly a mile north of the farm, where he met Mr. Goodwin, who gave him information as to his whereabouts and his way home. One more adventure with the sheep, and he will be obliged to stay in the woods unless he has a guide. Such is life in the woods, sometimes.
