Chili (11 February 1910)
Some parties in the country have been afraid to come to Chili on account of cases of small pox in the neighborhood and also on account of the fact that the board of health thought it prudent to close two district schools and also all the churches in the township. It certainly is a wise precaution to prevent the spread of the small pox. But as far as Chili is concerned, there is no danger at present of catching this disease, as there is now not one case of small pox in the township to our knowledge. Those families that were quarantined were let out last Friday.
Vincent Meyers lost one of his twin babies Monday. The child has been sick only a few days. The family has our sympathy.
Louis Albrecht who was seriously injured last week in the sand pit, is still quite sick, but there are hopes for his ultimate recovery.
For wall paper go to H. Degener, he has a fine line of samples. If you have no time to come, drop a line and the samples will be brought to the house for inspection and selection.
A number from here took in the wrestling match at Neillsville Saturday night.
The street light which is being tried certainly gives a splendid light. Perhaps it will become in the near future a fixture of the village.
Mrs. W. W. Page and her mother were visitors at Frank Waterman’s home.
Anna Fenske took up a position with Mrs. Hirth at Marshfield. Some livery horses will have more rest now than they had in the past.
