East Grant (4 February 1910)
Well here we are again.
Henry Winter had a sand bee Tuesday. While shoveling sand the pit caved in and Henry Albrecht’s oldest son was buried under about 8 loads of sand. Two or three others barely escaped being hurt. Albrecht had a shovel in his hand and it was broken. We have been unable as yet to learn the extent of his injuries, but we hope they won’t prove fatal.
Byrl Kidd and wife and Roscoe Mellen and wife spent Tuesday at Neillsville.
Dave Garbush’s entertained company Sunday evening.
Quite a few from here are expecting to see the wrestle next Saturday night between two ladies, Mrs. Jack Downs from Minneapolis and Miss Vaudett from Chicago. There will also be a wrestling match and a boxing match between two gentlemen. You bet we’re going.
Mrs. Paul Goebel and daughter spent Sunday afternoon under the parental roof.
Mr. and Mrs. John Goebel spent Monday with Paul Goebel and wife.
Mr. Winter called on Emil Lockman Sunday evening.
Two Irishmen were walking along one day and they saw a bird in one of the trees nearby. Mike raised his gun and took careful aim. "For the love of Heaven, Mike," exclaimed the other, "don’t shoot. The gun ain’t loaded." "I’ve got to," said Mike, "the bird won’t wait."
