Roscoe Stone, who has been employed at Star Lake for some time, returned to his home Monday and intends to spend a few days with his parents.  A companion accompanied him, whose name we did not learn.


Some of the youngsters in this neighborhood captured two foxes last Sunday.


Mrs. Henry Retzlaff and daughter Clara spent a pleasant evening at L. Knoop’s last Friday.


Carl Omhold was looking for a rainbow Wednesday morning.


Alfred Reisner and Laura Steinbach were taking in the sights of East Lynn Sunday.


Don’t grumble if your feet get wet these days.  Chances are you might have a corn or two and a soaking will do them goo.


School will close Friday with a basket sociable Thursday evening and a picnic the following day.


It would indeed be a puzzle to follow the directions of the road drag these days when they should be used after every rain.


Herman Portz say Holstein cattle and silage look better to him than gilt edge bonds.


Will Guk, who has a constant craving for pickled pigs feet, met his Waterloo a few weeks ago when he had 150 pounds sent by express from the northern part of the state.  Upon arrival of said feet they had passed the stage of the pure foot law test and the odor that greeted him as he opened the box that contained his heart’s desire was something like limburger cheese.  Bill gave a small portion to his faithful dog and the poor beast, who is trained to obey his master regardless of consequences swallowed the contents without a murmur, but ever since has shunned human beings and will not partake of any food that is offered him.
