The dance given by the M. W. A. at the opera house Tuesday eve., was a delightful affair and a success socially and financially. The hall was in gay attire through a pretty combination of foliage and floral garlands.  The music, furnished by the Whitcomb Orchestra was excellent.  A goodly number of Neillsville people from both the married and single ranks were in attendance.

An exchange has discovered that a poor girl has to be awfully good looking to be pretty, and a rich girl has to be awfully homely to be ugly.  It might have added that a poor man has to be awfully smart to be intelligent, and a rich man almost a blockhead to be ignorant.

When the people can be made to understand that it actually costs more in time and money to travel over a poor road than it does to travel over a good one, they will be less inclined to begrudge the expense of good roads, and what is more important still, will be willing and anxious to put the business of road making into the hands of the intelligent men who understand the business.  Poor roads are the expensive things that curse a country district.


Doc Paulson and Doc Wonser shipped a carload of horses to the western part of North Dakota early this week. Ross accompanied the horses to their destination and personally looked after them while enroute. Doc left for that part of the country on Thursday and they both will stay there until every horse is sold.  There were some fine looking animals among the lot, but they were all afflicted with the heaves and practically unfit for heavy work in this part of the country, while in Dakota the climatic conditions are such that these horses will soon be cured of this disease and are able to perform the same work as sound ones.


The day is not far distant when "Cards of thanks" will be a thing of the past. When death enters a home neighbors’ never fail to do all in their power to place a silver lining back of the dark cloud, and they do not expect or desire any thanks through the public press.  One subscriber, however, not to be outdone, sent in the following: "Mr. Editor: I desire to thank the friends and neighbors most heartily in this manner for their cooperation during the illness and death of my late husband who escaped from me by the hand of death on last Friday, while eating breakfast. To my friends and all who contributed so willingly toward making the last moments and the funeral a success, I desire to remember most kindly, hoping these lines will find them enjoying the same blessing.  I have also a good milch cow and roan gelding horse, eight years old, which I will sell cheap, ‘God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform.  He plants his footsteps on the sea and rides upon the storm.’  Also, a black and white shoat cheap"
