Heathville (3 March 1911)


Mr. and Mrs. Latamore left for Richland County last Monday where they will visit relatives before going to Nebraska, their future home.


Frank Zorn and wife moved into the Latamore residence now owned by Joe Bird.


Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Davis attended the dance at Chili last Saturday night.


It is not long ago that Loyal Jordan made a trip to Neillsville.  On his return he said to the conductor, wonder what the matter with my leg is.  I have been scratching it for 5 minutes and I can’t feel it. A lady sitting along side of him said, "Conductor he has been scratching mine."


The Schmidtke boys left for Ledger Wood, N. D. last Monday.


Reports have it that Mrs. August Dankemyer is very sick; Dr. Melbie of Marshfield is attending.


Wm. Zorn will milk 26 cows the coming season. That is a going some.


Sam Martin went to Neillsville Monday to consult Dr. Bradbury regarding his child’s health.


There is a hardware man in an nearby town who can’t either read or write.  He orders all of his goods by drawing a picture of the article he desires and puts down 10 or 15 or whatever number he wants.  Once he ordered six ranges (stoves) but he forgot to draw the griddle holes, so they sent him six large piano boxes.     


What is the difference between a sewing machine and a kiss, one sews seams nice, the other seams so nice.


The Heathville correspondent would like to have some one to take up this week and send in a few items every week, as we will be very busy the coming season and can’t attend to this regularly.


Kindly attend to your own business, whether you wear glasses or not.  Never trouble, trouble till trouble troubles you, and be sure that the trouble is in your line of business.  Sweep in front of your own door and you’ll have a good clean path or everlasting lie. Don’t try and pull that sliver out of another’s eye and thereby forget that soft Elm hand spike in your own eye. Do onto others as you would want them to do unto you.
