Thomas Chadwick from near Greenwood was in town between trains Saturday afternoon, calling on old friends.  Mr. Chadwick is one of the ole time loggers and is a familiar figure among the older residents of this community.

Mrs. Beecher sustained the loss of five teeth and had many loosened.  The baby escaped unhurt.  As the team passed Lautenbach’s mill one of the horses fell and they were captured.


A fourth of July celebration for Granton is being planned this year and preparations for a fitting observance of the day are well under say.  Happe’s Band of 13 pieces has been engaged to furnish music during the day and Whitcomb’s Orchestra will play for the dance in the afternoon and night.  Sports of all kinds such as goat races, sack race, pony race, wheelbarrow race, etc. with liberal prizes will furnish amusement for young and old.  In the afternoon a picnic is scheduled in Ed Wiesner’s grove just east of town, which makes an ideal spot for the purpose. Dinner will be served in the basement of the opera house and with two good hotels in town there is no need of anyone going hungry that day.  Arrangements are being made for a grand display of fireworks in the evening. As there is nothing "doing" this year in Neillsville, Loyal and Chili, a good sized delegation from these places is expected to help Granton celebrate.
