Mr. and Mrs. C. Albrecht and Miss Anna Miller left Monday for a few weeks visit at points in North Dakota and Minnesota.
We have been informed that the cheese makers in the surrounding country are going to establish a box factory and it will be located at Neillsville.
Gossip has it that East Lynn will soon have a cheese factory and it may be true, for worse things that that have happened.
Mrs. Russ Renne is at present writing is still very low.
Emil Lindow shot his old turkey hen last week and thus ended a constant rebellion of three months standing. Some time ago the poor unhappy, discontented creature escaped from its cage and for a long time evaded all pursuit, but last Tuesday her foot prints were discovered in a desolate region headed south, so Emil, who is a bold, fearless and venturous individual, promptly called his neighbors together, flung a hatchet before them on the ground, he asked them in a commanding way to follow him to battle, and everyone accepted his challenge. The trail was followed through snow drifts and swamps, over hills and meadows, but lo and behold all things have an ending. There, perched in a lofty tree, was the object of their search. The tree was promptly cut down by willing hands, and when the victim’s one wing was broken and one hind leg dislocated, Emil ventured near enough with his blunder buss and delivered a broadside and the struggle was over.
The Fremont correspondent is something like a young calf at weaning time, his mouth is constantly open, bleating and bellowing for something that is out of his reach. But for that he is not altogether to blame, in his present hide bound condition his mouth will flop open in spite of his efforts to keep it closed. Otherwise he is shrewd and intelligent and not altogether a fool, but his early training has been sorely neglected and chances on account of advanced age are against him of ever amounting to anything. But if the lot has befallen us to give him his first lesson in good behavior we will do it with pleasure. Therefore you dog livered, squaw faced whelp be on your guard and take your sagwa like a man. As a first attempt you have done very well and no doubt your friends, if you have any, are proud of you. But don’t get the big head, this little game has only commenced, there are yet a few obstacles to overcome before the battle is won, and unless we miss our guess, that 3-cornered grin will protrude out of the other side of your mouth very soon.
Fremont is a dirty place.
You can tell that by the correspondent’s face.
His mug is shaped like the diamond ace,
But with all his faults keeps in the race.
The school board purchased 10 cords of dry wood of J. Lenherr and H. Shultz delivered it last Saturday.
We presume that when the Editor has got his new typesetting machine in operation, he will be howling for still more news.
Oh yes, that’s where the center stake is located, you galoot.
