Neillsville, Wisconsin (17 March 1904)


Charley Gates came down from Chippewa County last week for a visit.  He is looking as rugged as a bear.


Jas Harper of Christie goes to Oregon this week, having sold the old farm.  He proposes to try the great west.


Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Heath went to St. Paul on Sunday to meet their daughter Miss Hazel, returning with her Tuesday.


Rev. Griffis will bring his family here when he returns from Kansas, which, it is expected, will be in a week or two.


Jas. K. Cannon came home from the hospital at Eau Claire late last week, feeling and looking quite well but not very strong.  He is steadily gaining.


Mrs. H. B. J. Andrus’ mother and sister, Mrs. and Miss Caldwell, have moved here and are keeping house in the Mrs. Rossman house on the north side.


Sergeant Arnold Knoop of Co A went to Eau Claire Tuesday to be examined before a military board as a candidate for the second lieutenancy.  Capt. H. W. Klopf was up with him.


Forest Calway left Monday for Minot, N. D. to look after his homestead.  Hans Hanson went also, on a similar mission.  He may run on to "Hiawatha" out there and get his scalp loosened.


Lester Tilton of Withee was here early this week on his way home from Sparta, where he attended the funeral of his mother and grandmother, whose deaths occurred within 24 hours of each other.

Mrs. M. Beaune was at St. Paul last week Thursday, called there by the illness of her father, Mr. Bullion, who accompanied her home and was taken to Neillsville to be cared for at the home of his son Rob’t Bullion - It is with sincere pleasure that Tom Searles’ many friends along this part of the Omaha learn of his reinstatement as passenger conductor in the company’s service.  This restores him to his full rights and puts him in his former position as extra passenger conductor and in regular order for promotion to a steady run. Good for Tom. - Merrillan Leader.
