Wedding announcements and invitations printed at this office, neat and cheap.


The 4th has come and gone. Great crowds from Neillsville, Chili and the surrounding country dame here to witness the celebration, which was "pulled off" as advertised.  Happe’s Band was on deck early and furnished very good music during the day.  At 10:30 in the forenoon the parade, composed of gaily decorated floats, automobiles, buses filled with children and headed by the band wended its way through the principal streets of the village and was enjoyed by all.  Charley Neinas’ chariot race minus the chariot was not a part of the program though.  The horses became frightened and breaking three tugs freed them from the rig completely and in a wild gallop went through the streets to the barn without doing any damage whatever. In the afternoon the different races took place, but owing to the dense dust they added little to the days’ enjoyment.


The dance at the opera house in the afternoon and evening was well patronized due to the excellent music furnished by Whitcomb’s Orchestra. The fireworks in the evening were, enjoyed by a large crowd. As a whole the celebration was a pleasant affair and a financial success to the promoters.  So far as we know there were no fatalities reported, but there might have been some if a nigger had been in sight when the result of the Jeffries-Johnson fight became known in the afternoon.  In one sense of the word the Fourth this year was a disappointment to everybody as it failed to bring with it the usual rain which is so badly needed.
