Delia Smith who has been working in Chicago for the past year, came home Monday for a visit with her parents and family.


Mrs. Robert Steffen and two children accompanied Miss Rappold to Cedarburg Thursday morning, where she will visit relatives and friends.


Mrs. P. B. Greenfield - formerly Leah Pfeifer - of Sisseton, S. D., arrived Thursday evening to visit her sister, Mrs. Geo. Alton and other Greenwoodities.


Workmen are building a new porch on Dr. J. C. Baker’s residence, on the east and south sides of the main part, which will make a decided improvement to the property.


Walter Haffner was in town the first of the week, being laid up with one of his thumbs which came too close to a saw in the Marshfield Bedding factory where he is employed.


A crew of workmen in charge of Marshal Hogue is busy these days repairing sidewalks and building new ones where needed, making a much improved condition in this regards.

The Greenwood ball boys got "skinned" at Owen Sunday afternoon with a score of 10 to 1. It was certainly an off day for the local team, some of the good players doing poor work and making uncalled for errors. Next Sunday, when the return game will be played with Owens here at Greenwood, the boys promise to be on their metal and play ball.


The dynamo for the power house arrived Saturday and is being placed in position, as are also the lights for the streets, etc. The dam is all completed except the buttment at the west end and the removing of some of the scaffolding, coffer dams, etc. The concrete mixer, little dynamo and some other stuff was shipped out last week to some place in Montana.


Cashier R. M. Jenks and wife of Loyal were over Sunday and visited the dam to note how it progresses. Mr. Jenks has manifested a lively interest in this enterprising from the very beginning, as have many of the more enterprising business men of our sister town. Mr. Jenks predicts that the dam and electric light plant will be a big thing for Greenwood if it works as it promises to do.


Jas. Van de Hay’s fine, large farm residence in the town of Beaver was burned to the ground Saturday forenoon, probably from fire starting in the attic around the chimney, much in the same manner that the Kippenhan fire originated. It was a large, roomy house and well furnished throughout, having been built only three or four years ago. It is doubtful if it could be replaced for $2,000 if for that amount. We understand that the insurance on it was between $1,000 and $1,500, which means a considerable loss to Mr. Van de Hey.


Albert Barber of Christie is having a run of ill luck that would almost discourage ordinarily gritty men. Sunday morning he got up early to do the chores in order to go Neillsville. His eight-year-old son, who is an active, energetic lad, wanted to go with him and so went, unknown to his father, into the pasture to catch the horses. A two-year-old colt in the herd kicked the lad on the top of the head and a little to one side, smashing the skull in onto the brain. The doctors have hopes of saving the lad, though it is possible that the broken bones will have to be removed. A year ago this same boy had the skin and most of the flesh torn from three of the fingers on one hand. Beside this misfortune Mr. Barber has lost four children and his first wife.
