Three new girls in Thorp; one at the home of Wm. Francis, one is boarding at Wm. Van Houten’s, the third at the home of Henry Sanders.


A man, whose name we did not learn, was brought in from Devine’s camp, 16 miles north of town, having a dislocated shoulder, the result of a log rolling over him. He was taken to Banderob’s hotel, where he was properly cared for.
