No one here has gone or is going visiting without the intention of coming back, unless it is Clark Waterman, who intends to go to Beeckler’s in the near future.


Aug. Kampin purchased a 6 h.p. gasoline engine and disposed of a horse in the bargain.


Sufficient weather predictions were published last week for the next six weeks.  However, we are of the opinion that the present condition of weather will continue until we have a change.


It is with great pleasure that we take in the foresight of East Lynn, as to the prospects of its being incorporated and Jim quicker being appointed mayor.  We rather believe it will be Bill himself, and why not?  For where in their midst could they find a more bow legged farsighted, mink hearted buzzard than himself if he would comb his hair and let his whiskers grow.  Now that there is some talk of moving the state fair buildings to a more central part of Wisconsin, Bill is going to send a petition to the legislature and have them locate in East Lynn.  He claims the center stake of the sate is midway between his and Jim Quicker’s straw stack.  At present he can see the straight road to prosperity, at the price of milk and a half dozen fresh milk cows fed on hexel flavored with molasses feed, a cellar full of potatoes to sell, no more shares in the bank, the state fair in sight, there is little chance for a draw back.


G.A. Hadden was a Granton caller Tuesday.


H. Portz is singing "my wife’s gone to the country."
