J. C. Moody of Withee sends the Gleaner a copy of the Wonewoc Reporter for June 7th, which contained news that will be of sad interest to many Gleaner readers who knew the family when they were Clark county residents.


"The people of this place were shocked to hear of the death of Mrs. G. E. Maynard Thursday morning, May 31st about 8 o’clock. She was sitting in her chair piecing quilt blocks and talking with one of her friends who called to see her, when she was taken very sick. The Dr. was called but she was past help and died in a few minutes. For several days she had not been feeling well but nothing serious was thought of it for she was able to do her own work most of the time. Adalaine E. Marshall was born in New York, June 16, 1842. At the age of thirteen she came with her parents to Wisconsin, and has resided here ever since. About six years ago she and her husband came to this town from Greenwood, Wis. Mrs. Maynard was a member of the Baptist Church at Greenwood and at the time of her death she was secretary of the Ladies’ Aid Society here and was for some time a member of the Relief Corps of Wonewoc. She leaves to mourn her loss a bereaved husband and six children, Frank E., of Amberg, who was not present at the funeral, Mrs. Phebe Poppy, Charles, Warren and George Maynard, of Nashwauk, and John of Union Center, all of whom were present at the funeral, besides three sisters and two brothers The funeral was held Sunday, June 3rd at 10 o’clock at the M. E. church, officiated by Rev. Baremore, pastor in charge. Interment at Pine Eden cemetery at Wonewoc. They have the sympathy of the community."


News has been received by relatives and friends here of the death of Mrs. Wm. Austin at Prosser, Yakima Co., Wash., June 16th from heart failure. She and her husband lived in Greenwood a number of years ago, he having run the first stave mill built here, the one that was across the Black river. Mrs. Austin was the mother of five children, Mrs. George Warner of Hemlock being one of the daughters. The Clark county friends of the family sympathize with the mourning husband and children.

Some twenty-six Masons, including their families, went to Marshfield Tuesday to attend the annual picnic of the association, and although it had rained there the entire night before the Marshfield lodge did itself proud in entertaining the visitors - some 450 being provided for at dinner and supper.  An interesting program of speaking, music, etc., was rendered, Greenwood furnishing one of the entertainers, Mabel Bishop, who won long and hearty applause with one of her popular piano selections and was compelled to reply with another good one. Next year it will be a basket picnic instead of being run as it has thus far. It is likely that Merrillan will be the next place of meeting.

Mrs. and Mrs. Benedict desire to thank their friends for the interest and sympathy manifested in the behalf at this time and especially Mrs. Hogue and family and Mrs. Harry Mead for decorations at the church.


Mrs. A. C. Smith sold her restaurant last week to W. H. Cole of Greenwood. Mrs. Cole having former experience in the business will give her patrons good service. Mr. and Mrs. Cole are anxious to give their children a good education and that is their sole purpose of locating here. They are here to stay if they get the patronage and there is no reason why they should not have it. Mrs. Smith has built up a good trade during her stay here of only a few months and while we regret to have her leave, yet we wish the new proprietors nothing but the best of success. They will keep a home bakery in connection and will handle all kinds of fruit in season. They are deserving of your trade. - Loyal Tribune
