Chili (21 January 1910)


A little girl arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Vandewyst last week, gladdening the hearts of the parents.


Mrs. Ed Duchow and children are having the small pox and their home is put under quarantine by the board of health.  This country ought to take a lesson from the older countries where small pox is almost unknown and where they have compulsory vaccination.  Of course the small pox cases at present are very mild, but by letting it have its old way might change and become more serious.  It is certainly very inconvenient to be shut up for several weeks or even months on account of contagious diseases.


Ed. Toble’s sister Mrs. Eastman who stayed with Ed for a week, returned to Neillsville Sunday morning.


Go to Degener and get some of that blue and white triple coated pure enamel ware.  It will make you feel like keeping house and will brighten up your kitchen shelves.


Quite a number of our town school board officers attended the convention at Neillsville. Many good ideas could be taken home for the betterment of school affairs. Especially Larson gave a clear understanding of all that comes under the head of education.


Miss Elsie Wenzel stopped over between trains Wednesday and made a friendly call.


Old soldiers always seem to go together.  When in Neillsville Henry Knoll and Ed Oens always could be seen quite near during the convention last week.  The only thing Mr. Oens has against Henry is that he talked too much when they bunked together.  So Mr. Oens did not get all the beauty sleep he figured on.


G. Bertschinger has a calf in his keeping which came to his yard about 5 weeks ago.  Anyone owning same can get it by paying for the ad and feeding.
