Miss Lois Lloyd of Neillsville came out Wednesday for a several day visit with her friend Lulu Page.


Miss Lillian McGinnis left for Stevens Point yesterday morning.


H.E. Williams and Robert Kurth returned from Spring Valley yesterday, where they spent several days buying stock.


Max Opelt and father were over from Lynn Wednesday on business.  We acknowledge a pleasant call.


Otto Becker, the enterprising cheese and butter manufacturer of Lynn, transacted business here on Wednesday.


Mrs. G.E. Curtis and 2 children of Neillsville came out Wednesday for a visit at the H.J. Pietenpols.  The two elder boys came out last Friday and are still here.


Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Schuster, together with friends from La Cross, drove out from Neillsville and made some pleasant calls among Granton friends Wednesday afternoon.


Roy Lyons is again at his post in the A.J. Knorr Co. Store after a several week vacation spent in the southern part of the state.


Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Nanstad and Mrs. Jas. Finnegan and daughter Ethel were Neillsville visitors on Friday.


John Klinker of Menasha, publisher of the "Winnebago Anzeiger" spent Tuesday here visiting his friend, P.J. Kemmeter.


Messrs. John P. Kintzele, J. B. Daughhette and Noble Downer were among those who quit the harvest fields long enough to go berrying Tuesday and secure their winter stock of black berries.


Frank Converse and Noble Downer were fishing down in Jackson County recently and frequently landed fish a yard in length, so now in retailing their experience if the fish aren’t long enough to suit the customer, they make up a story and retail to suit.


Max Opelt will give the last picnic and dance of the sason at Lynn Park Sept. 17.  Good music will be in attendance and refreshments will be served on the grounds.  Remember the date as a cordial invitation is extended to all.  Don’t miss this last picnic of the season.


Messrs. J.M. Tompkins, Levi Morris, Chas. Beeckler and Wm. Storm went black berrying Saturday, returning Monday morning with great quantities of the luscious fruit.


Frederick Schwerten celebrated his 70th birthday Sunday.  The Gottlieb Krause, August Schmoll, Amelia Reichert, Gustav Garbush, Dan Nasland, Herman Thiede, Wm. Schune and Phil Wegner families, together with Mr. Schwerten’s good wife, helped him make the occasion a memorable one.  Mrs. Schwerten is a jolly great-grandfather and a number of his grandchildren will remember this celebration.
