Strawberries, Yes


They Are Raised in This Section of the State


The Stanley Republican Tells of the yield Around There - Shows Good Returns Large Yields.


Two weeks ago we made a brief comment on the luscious strawberries in this section, referring to H. W. Hunt’s garden and quoting his opinion of local soil as compared with that of Sparta. Last week the Stanley Republican enlarges on the subject, as follows:


"The strawberry season has come and gone. Its going is attended with many regrets. In fact it always comes too late and goes too soon to suit the average mortal. There is no fruit which appears upon the market which seems to satisfy so many cravings of civilized man as this fruit. The local harvest has covered a period of about two weeks. It is usually longer, sometimes lasting four weeks.


"The principal growers in this locality at present are L. E. Scott, Mrs. W. Chapman and G. W. Mabbott. Mr Scott reports that he harvested 3,500 quarts from one acre. Mrs. W. Chapman reports a yield similar to that of Mr. Scott while that of Mr. Mabbott is somewhat smaller being something like 1600 quarts from an acre or more. Any of these yields would appear to be profitable however. But the fact is that the yield of this is somewhat below the average. Two years ago the late Wilford Chapman harvested 10,000 quarts from an acre of ground. We suspect this record will go unchallenged for sometime.


"The fact remains that this locality is particularly congenial to the seductive strawberry. In its native wild state it thrives here as no where else and under cultivation it gives good returns on an investment for him who understands its culture and is willing to devote the right amount of skill and energy to it at the right time.


"Mr. Scott, than whom there is no higher authority in the state, says that the berry produced here is of superior quality and especially adapted to marketing purposes in that it is much firmer than the berry produced farther south while possessing all the other desirable qualities such as flavor, juiciness and delicate coloring.


"Strawberry culture should be an inviting and remunerative field to people who own a little land near the city. There is always a good market for berries produced here. Up to the present time the home market has taken practically all the product here and they have not sold for less than ten cents per quart or $1.50 per crate. The yield in this locality has been better than anywhere else in the state.  In the far famed Sparta region the crop was almost a afilure."

Greenwood 3 - Owen 2.


As promised last week the Greenwood ball team made good on he local diamond Sunday afternoon. The Owen team met its Waterloo at the hands of the Greenwood team to the music of the above score. It was an interesting game from start to finish. Errors on the part of Armstrong and Anderson gave the visitors their two scores in the first inning. Our boys rallied in the last of the fourth inning, which netted them three scores. Johnson for Greenwood pitched an elegant game, striking out 15 men. The same number were also struck out by Coturi of Owen, who however, was not as steady in his throwing. Christofferson of Loyal did good work as umpire and deserves much credit. Following is the score by innings:


Greenwood 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 0 - 3


Owen 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 2


The line-up of the teams was as follows: Greenwood - Anderson, (c); Shanks, (1b);  Baker, (2b); Welch, (3b); Armstrong, (ss); Carter, (cf); Syth, (rf); Tscharner, (lf); Johnson, (p).


Owen --  Clark, (c), Richards, (1b); Welch, (2b); Montevile, (3b) May, (ss); Plecity, (cf); Brandt, (rf); Bobb, (lf); Coturi, (p).


Next Sunday’s game for the Greenwood team will be at Granton.

Healing Properties of Water.


There is no remedy of such general application and none so easily obtained as water, and yet nine persons out of ten will pass it by in an emergency to seek for something of less efficacy. There are few cases of illness where water should not occupy the highest place as a remedial agent.


A strip of flannel or a napkin folded lengthwise and wrung out of hot water and applied around the neck of a child who has the croup, will surely bring relief in a few minutes. A towel folded several times, then quickly wrung out of hot water and immediately applied over the seat of pain in toothache or neuralgia, will afford prompt relief. This treatment in colic works like magic. Cases on record having resisted other treatment for hours, have yielded to this treatment in ten minutes. Pieces of cotton batting dipped in hot water, then applied to all sores and new cuts, bruises, and sprains is the treatment now generally adopted in hospitals. Hot water taken freely a half hour before bed time is an excellent carthartic in the case of constipation, while it has a most soothing effect on the stomach and bowels. This treatment continued for a few months, together with proper attention to diet, will alleviate mild cases of dyspepsia. - National Magazine for July.

The case on trial and now before the court is Margaret Huntzicker against E. E. Crocker, assignee. This action is brought by Mrs. Huntzicker to recover an inchoate dower interest in the Huntzicker farm. This farm was transferred by Mr. And Mrs. Huntzicker to their son and son-in-law about the time of the old furniture insolvency.

Sturdevant for the assignee. - Rep. and Press.



Mrs. Wallis at Rest.


Just three weeks from the time of her first partial stroke of paralysis, Mrs. Paschal B. Wallis died at her home in this city at 1:40 p. m. July 12th, having suffered two other strokes in the meantime, and suffered greatly until the last two or three days before her death.


Deceased was Orzana Dean and was born Dec. 27, 1842 in Grafton, New Hampshire. She had two brothers and two sisters, all living except one brother. Her brother, W. E. Dean, lives somewhere in Iowa; Her sisters Mrs. Lucy Attwood lives at Bridgeport, Wis, and Mrs. Mary Hill, at Denver, Colorado.


Deceased came west with her parents at the age of 15, spending a year in Ill. Then coming to Grant county, Wis. At about 19 she was married to Joshua Davis and of this union one daughter, now Mrs. Helen Barrows of Letcher, S. D., was born. Mr. Davis died during the war of the rebellion.


March 12, 1866 she was married to Paschal B. Wallis and of this union were born three boys and two girls. Two of the boys died at an early age. The living are Wilton Dean Wallis, Mrs. Idella Grace Millard both of this city and Mrs. Blanche A. Marvin of Ingram and an adopted son, Laverne Adelbert, who with their father and ten grandchildren are left to mourn.


About 19 years ago the family moved to Clark county where they have ever since resided.


Mrs. Wallis was a member of the M. E. church, though for many years had seldom attended, having been in poor health, suffering from rheumatism and later Bright’s disease. She was a conscientious, hard working and faithful wife and mother, doing faithfully the work which came to her lot. For a number of years and until compelled, on account of her health to abandon her work, she was a carpet weaver.


The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the Grace M. E. church, the sermon being preached by Pastor C. O. Presnall. The pall bearers were chosen from among the old soldiers and there were numerous floral tokens at the church provided by the wives of the old soldiers.


The remains were laid to rest in Greenwood cemetery.


The family desires to extend their heart felt appreciation to their neighbors and friends for the many kindly services tended during the last illness of their recent affliction.
