Bank cashier W.S. Davis assisted with threshing at the T.D. Wages, Monday, hastening over directly after the bank closed at 4 p.m.  We saw him driving home at 7 o’clock with the farm team hitched to a wagon upon which was an empty hay rack.  He certainly looked warm and would like to have it appear that he had been at work.  Well, at any rate, it is safe to say he worked Wages for his supper.

Fred Davis, a noted stock breeder and buyer of this place, is bound to be dressed up especially when he goes from home.  So last Monday morning he appeared at the depot with his shoes greased "up to the limit", and upon being questioned about it, replied that he was going to Neillsville and hadn’t time for a shine, when having no boot grease on hand he had introduced them to wagon grease with this result.  Fred is made of the right stuff, has his share of stick-to-it-tiveness, perseverance, and ingenuity in his make up and is bound to succeed in whatever he undertakes.
