Bert Hicks and his crew of men have finished the construction of concrete silos for N. E. Lee, Louis Moh and Wm.

Marsh.  L. G. Morris has given Mr. Hicks the contract for the laying of a walk in front of his residence and others are thinking of following suit while they have the opportunity of getting the work done by experts in that line.


Mr. and Mrs. Fred Vine of Crandon arrived here last week on a visit among their children residing hereabouts.  Mr. Vine was a pleasant caller at our sanctum Friday afternoon and we must say that we enjoyed his visit very much.  He is one of the old settlers of this town and a democrat of the old school.  Mr. Vine was chairman of this town when Granton was platted15 years ago and he says things have changed considerable since his departure from here, his old time friends have either died or moved away and the old Democrats are now leading Republicans.  Mr. Vine is now in the hardware business at Crandon, the county seat of Forest County.


Herman Henning the Chili hardware merchant was all excitement as he wheeled into this city last Saturday morning in his automobile.  To escape the heat and dust of the day he got up early to make the run and when several miles out of Chili going through a little stretch of timber he came upon a large black bear standing in the middle of the road. As the machine approached the bruin stood his ground until Herman thought he would have to either run over him or stop to give him time to move out of his way which the bear did very reluctantly by taking a position on the road side where it could watch the automobile as it went by.  Mr. Henning is one of those crack shots of Clark County and a hunter who always brings home the bacon and to be thus tempted with nothing along but an air pump made him feel like a man with his hands tied at a grab party.  Another bear was seen just north of this city a night before.  It is supposed these animals on account of the forest fires in the northern counties are seeking places of safety in the more open country. - Marshfield News
