1) Miss Dolly Nickol returned to Greenwood last Sunday after spending the holiday vacation with her sister, Mrs. John Huntzicker. Rep. & Press

2) Editor D.V. Richardson of the Loyal Tribune took advantage of the balmy weather Friday by driving over and making the Gleaner man a pleasant call.

3) Mesdames H.H. Hartson and Jane Towle, with Baby Ruth Hartson, were county jail birds Friday and Saturday, the guest of Sheriff and Mrs. Geo. R. Brooks.

4) Bennie Johnson, Walter Raymond, and Alfred Hendrickson drove over from Greenwood Wednesday and took in the sights around town. -- Loyal Tribune

5) Carl Braman, a cousin of the Gleaner man, came up Monday morning to try his hand in the printing office, learning the mysteries of the art preservative.

6) Mrs. Harry Bryden and Halford are spending a few weeks with her sister, Mrs. P.E. Peterson, and Greenwood friends, before she joins her husband at Rib Lake.

7) Mrs. Mary Warner returned Tuesday night from White Pigeon, Mich., where she and her brother, J W. Hommel, went to attend the funeral of their brother, Henry Hommel.

8) John W. Stanton, Jr., retuned from a trip to Mondovi Sunday via team and was accompanied by his niece, Mattie Stanton, and her friend, Pearl West, who will visit here for a while.

9) Richard Wellen came up from Whitehall Friday for a visit with his sister and her numerous Greenwood friends. This was his first visit since he moved from here about five years ago.

10) Christian Endeavor at the Baptist church at 6:30 Sunday evening. "An evening with Chinese Missions." Acts 17:24-31. Leader, Chester Miller. Remember the consecration meeting and collection.

11) Elmer J. Knott and George J. Smith, general and special agents respectively of the New York Life Insurance Company, are spending a few days in the city in the interests of good life insurance.

12) Thos. McCalvy returned Tuesday of last week from the woods near Ashland where he had gone the week before. His health is such that he could not stand the work and was obliged to give it up.

13) Hans Nelson drew a check from the Greenwood creamery the other day for his December cream, amounting to $46.50. This was for cream from six cows, three of which are two-year-old heifers, and shows an earning of $7.75 for each cow. Mr. Nelson has a separator with which to separate the cream at home thus leaving him the nice warm milk for the calves. That kind of farming pays better than logging.

14) Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Cronin are called on to mourn the sudden death of their 18-month-old daughter, which occurred at two o’clock Saturday morning. The little one has always been delicate but was not thought to be in a serious condition lately, which makes its sudden demise the more sad. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at two o’clock from the presbyterian church, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating. A neat and appropriate floral decoration was provided by Pearl Shanks. The sorrowing parents have the sympathy of all.

15) Ole C. Andersen (everybody in this locality knows Ole) is one of the lucky fellows. Last week he received notice that he had been awarded the second prize in the grand guessing contest offered by the Press Publishing Association, and that he would soon receive a check for $1,333.33. The guess was on the total vote for governor in the states of New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan. The correct guess was 2,886,739. Mr. Andersen’s guess was 2,886,738. He did not win the big prize but he won a good one and all his Withee friends rejoice with him. His check had not yet arrived Monday afternoon but he expected it Tuesday, so that by this date he is undoubtedly in possession of his wealth. Ole is a popular young farmer and will probably make good use of his money. His check arrived Wednesday. -- Withee Sentinel.

16) J. E. Noyes, the hustling editor of the well known Greenwood Gleaner, paid our village a visit last Saturday forenoon and secured a correspondent who will give the readers of that paper record of some of the doings of our people and of the local events. Brother Noyes favored our office with a call and took dinner with us. Come again and spend the Sabbath with us. -- Dorchester Reporter

17) Roy Murphy, son of Mr. and Mrs. V.M. Murphy died at the Merchant Hotel Monday, Jan. 12, 1903. The immediate cause of death was acute bronchitis, though for many years Roy has been an invalid. He was born at Arapahoe, Neb., April 22, 1887, and until he was five years was a healthy, sprightly child. He was taken with pseudo hypertrophic paralysis, a disease which gradually rendered him helpless. For five years he was able to move about, but was finally unable to walk and had to be moved in a wheelchair. His parents exhausted every means known to medical science for his relief, but without avail. He was a patient sufferer and a favorite with the guests and the young people who made his acquaintance, and his parents have the sympathy of all in their affliction. The funeral ceremony was held at the house Wednesday forenoon, Rev. Guy Campbell officiating. The remains were taken to the cemetery at Patel Grove, Wis., for burial in the family plot. -- Rep. & Press.
