Miss Elsie Breseman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Breseman, passed her fifteenth milestone last Sunday and a goodly number of her young friends, being aware of the fact, made the occasion a memorable one; meeting and going to the Breseman home in a body where they took Miss Elsie by surprise and where, in company with her, they spent a most delightful long to be remembered evening.


Mrs. F.H. Peters had two Pitner lamps and one chandelier put in her home, the Eagle House, last week.  These are the gasoline light put in by F.M. Garman of Merrillan for the Gillett Light Co. of Chicago, and are very materially adding their share to the comfort and happiness of the patrons and guests of the Eagle House.

Julius Lautenbach, who was running a steam thresher for his brother August, had a narrow escape from death while threshing for Jim Hughes one day last week.  The engine became unmanageable, got away from him and took a trip downhill, backing into the feeder in such a manner as to leave Julius unharmed though greatly scared.


Fred Gerber remembered us with a few choice apples just as would delight the housekeeper for pickling.  Trying to buy some of him we learned that we were too late, as he had been unable to supply the demand this year.  We are indebted for the sample but they tasted like more and we couldn’t satisfy the devil’s appetite, let alone ours.
