Mrs. Julia Jabas, who has been visiting her daughter, Mrs. John Mack, for the past few weeks, left Thursday morning for her home in Appleton.  Later she goes to California to visit with a granddaughter.  This is quite a trip for her as she is seventy-nine years old, though she is as young and spry in actions as any half her age.


J. W. Simmons was over from eatern Beaver Monday making arrangements with Alfred Dingley to have him build a boat for use near Butternut during the hunting season.  While Mr. Simmons is an up-to-date farmer he has some of the sportsman’s nature about him and goes at it in dead earnest.

P. Raymond’s place, he will begin the erection of a neat cottage, thus becoming a permanent Greenwood resident.



Henry Oxford was taken last Thursday afternoon with an attack of congestion of the stomach and brain and was in a very serious condition and Mrs. Oxford reports that had it not been for the able and timely assistance of Dr. K.
