The picnic given by Rev. Reiff’s congregation last Sunday was well attended and greatly enjoyed by all present.  The weather was perfect and the rain the night before laid the dust sufficient to put the roads and grounds in perfect condition.  These picnics and especially the dinners served there are annually looked for with great anticipation by young and old.


For Sale: 40 acre farm in Town of York, 30 acres clear, good buildings. Cheap!  Inquire of Wm. Uhlman, Neillsville R. 4.


Everyone has its share of troubles, even the man who owns an automobile. The other day when Len Howard was speeding along on a country highway he met a man with horse and buggy, and upon receiving the sign of distress the auto came to a halt and the engine was stopped. "Why", remarked Len as the horse passed the auto without paying the slightest attention to it, "your horse doesn’t seem to be a bit afraid." "No, this one here isn’t afraid, but I got one at home that is," was the man’s reply.


Professor Lloyd Davis left last Saturday morning for his home at Red Granite, Wis., after closing his second successful term as principal of our schools.  Mr. Davis has decided not to return next fall, a fact very much regretted by his friends, and those who were aware of his ability as a teacher.  During his two terms of principal-ship he has brought out school to a degree of perfection and it is hoped that his successor, whoever he may be. will be able to continue the work where Mr. Davis has left it.


Mrs. Clemens Kuechenmeister and daughter Anita with little Lillian Hantke went to Eau Claire on Sat. to visit Grandma Hantke and master Irving Kurth. They found master Kurth "Sunshine" very happy and contented, very glad to have this visit with his auntie and little cousins and uncomplainingly bade them good bye at parting, but grandma Hantke was so homesick that they were obliged to bring her home for a few weeks visit when she will return and resume her course of treatment.


For Sale: A surrey in good condition. I would take stock in exchange.  Frank Lavey


Mrs. John Hefty who lives a few miles northwest of here met with a severe accident Wednesday afternoon while assisting her husband in pulling stumps. She was driving the team which in some way became frightened and ran away. Mrs. Hefty got tangled up in the lines and being unable to free herself was dragged about the field and  violently thrown against stumps and rocks until the team could be brought to a standstill. A piece of scalp about 6 inches square was severed from her head and besides many other bruises about the body; she suffered also a fracture of the left leg near the hip.  Dr. Ross pronounces her condition as serious.

Monday L. E. Moh sold his beautiful pure bred Percheron Stallion "Avalanche" to Chas. Guk of the Town of Lynn who intends to develop him for breeding purposes. This colt was just one year old on June 2nd, last week, and weighed exactly 1,000 pounds on that day.  He should mature at a ton at 5 years.  Farmers keep an eye on him and see him grow.


Rev. J. Reiff was pleasantly surprised by a large number of his parishioners and friends at his home last Sunday evening, the occasion being his 40th birthday. As a token of their esteem they presented him with an elegant office chair purchased of August Hammler.  It is needless to say that the evening was enjoyed by all, for Mr. Reiff as well as his better half are very pleasant and capable entertainers, in whose presence anyone is bound to feel at home.  Among those present from away were Rev. Kemena and family of Nasonville and Rev. Lange and family of Loyal.


While Dr. Schulz was returning home last week Wednesday night he noticed a light in Max Opelt’s store and upon investigation found that burglars were at work within.  Securing his shot gun and on returning he noticed three men leaving the store.  He commanded them to halt and refusing to do so he opened fire which they promptly returned.  In all about 15 shots were exchanged, the burglars finally taking to their heels. So far as could be ascertained, little or nothing was missing from the store.


Card of Thanks: We wish to express our thanks for the many courtesies and great kindness shown us by our neighbors and friends through the death of our beloved husband and father.  Mrs. Eva Canfield, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Frank, and Howard and Ray Canfield
