One week from next Monday is the Fourth of July.


Wild strawberries have been quite frequent for some time.


C. H. Clark, of the Marshfield Times, was in town on Monday last.


Fourth of July goods at Prentice & Co.'s  Flags, firecrackers, etc.


Mrs. Barnes, of Milwaukee, is now stopping with her husband at this place.


Next Week is the last week of school for this term.  The children are correspondingly happy.


Hall & Son have a first class lot of lumber wagons, which they sell cheap.  Call and see them.


Rev. C. Barker, of Unity, was in town on Friday last, and made this office a pleasant call.


Mr. A. T. Prentice was in town the latter part of last week, but left again for Portage on Monday.


Mr. C. Eillenfelt is building a new house on his farm near this place.  We believe that he has a raising to-day.


Mr. Benjamin Nute, agent of the Milwaukee Republican and News, made this office a brief call on Friday last.


Several Spencer boys went up to Colby to attend the Circus there on Tuesday.  They report it very fair for this country.


Mr. Harding now has a turning lathe attached to a pulley in Thayer's mill and the way he turns out work in his line is surprising.


Mrs. Frank Whipple, who has been absent for several weeks, visiting in and around Waupaca, returned Friday last. Frank again wears his customary cheerful smile.


Victor Richardson, who has been away from home for nearly a year, attending school, returned on Wednesday, and will probably make Spencer his home for awhile.  The boys all welcome him back.


Mitch. Ducate has moved his saloon into the building vacated by J. A. Honeywell, and Moses Ducate will soon occupy the building used for a saloon as a jewelry store and headquarters for his sewing machine agency.


The best part of the race last Tuesday evening, was the foot race between Jerry Bonnallie and Jas. Discoll.  The way they made the dust fly was a sensation.  It wasn't decided who came in ahead, and they will try it again sometime.


Mr. Graves is negotiating with Mr. Richert for the sale of his building, and will probably make a trade.  We had begun in hope that Mr. Graves had forgotten all about leaving and was going to stay in Spencer.  He will remain here until after the 4th.


The Brook House, which was purchased by Mr. A. Schaefer, of Marshfield, is now a thing of the past, and will hereafter be known as the "Rail Road Hotel."  The sign painting was done by Mr. Thompson, and it is a good, workmanship piece of painting.


Mr. S. C. Sanford, who was in Dorchester the fore part of the week informs us that Mr. Crabtree who was employed at the depot here and is now staffing agent at Dorchester was taken with spinal fever on Monday last.  Dr, Hubbell of Medford was telegraphed is unreadable.
