Yes indeed, brother Marshfield News, so be it.  The pickles are furnished every week as regular as the tick of an eight day clock, but when some people get funny they must take the consequences, for revenge is sometimes sweet.  There is one point to the Granton News’ favor, he gets his pickles fresh and is not compelled to take them second handed by copying from other papers, and kindly bear this in mind that it is now and always has been our motto to try and live in peace and harmony with all mankind, but if there is someone hankering to have it out with us be he an editor or a fish peddler, a farmer or a politician, let him come forward and give us an exhibition of his skill.  And  he may rest assured that his case will be attended to with pleasure, and as a further inducement we will put up a two weeks old Holstein calf against the price of a year’s subscription that the laurels will not all slip from our grasp.


A. Pusheck bought a new Deering grain binder of John Howard one day last week.


A number of friends and neighbors have dropped in and surprised Mr. and Mrs. Amil Lindow.  For a while the time was passed with games and music, but later on it turned into a prize contest and the following are the lucky ones who carried off the blue ribbons.  Herman Jensen drank the largest amount of beer.  C. Guk consumed the most sandwiches and salt pickles.  Fred Zuehle won out on Schafskopf, A. Pusheck for being the best dancer, Rob Nanivell carried his point without opposition as being the best looking man and Amil Lindow for spinning the largest yarn.  Louis Knoop had no hand in the contest but could have without any trouble won all of the prizes.  The writer at the opening of the campaigne was given an invitation to sit in a corner and look wise or receive a poke in the slats.  Who the prettiest girl was could not be decided, for they were all good looking and the judges could not agree.


Mrs. Herman Jensen left for Loyal Tuesday for a few days visit with her sister Mrs. Schwartz.


Miss Louisa Grade left Tuesday morning for Arpin where she has accepted a position as clerk in a store.


Just because a person has got one well paying occupation that isn’t a sign that he is not allowed another.  For instance if one is a barber what is to hinder him from becoming a car sweeper if he so desires and time allows it, for when it happens to be a coal car the accumulation goes a long ways toward the fuel bill these cold days.  But sometimes misfortune overtakes the best of us as it did this poor car sweeper in Chili one day last week.  It so happened that being detained by business he did not make his rounds one evening until after dark and to his great sorrow got into the cattle car but was not aware of his mistake until the next morning when he opened up his place of business and looked into the stove.  Instead of finding a good bed of coals the readers can guess what he found.  So when you meet a fellow on the street that carries a sort of a cow look on  his face he is the victim.
