Mrs. E. Steinbach, mother and sister of Fond du Lac County, are spending a few weeks visiting relatives and friends in this vicinity.


Emil Lindow, armed with a dagger and accompanied by a few others, started on a fishing tour Sunday morning, and upon reaching his destination he encountered a pickerel in shallow water, that to hear him tell it would in size far exceed the whale that swallowed Jonah.  After following its tail through whirlpools and over rapids for nearly 10 miles the monster of the deep, by the oncoming darkness made its escape.  Although Emil returned empty handed his courage has not failed him. He says the best way to catch fish is to sit on the bank in a shady place and wait until the river dries up and then kill them with a club.


Mr. and Mrs. John Steinbach of Forest Junction are spending a few weeks visiting the James Quicker and Philip Steinbach families.


Harry Eide says the success of a fisherman depends mostly on the tools that he uses and when he started for the Black River Tuesday morning one would naturally think that he practices what he preaches.  Following is a list of the implements he had in his possession: one platform scale, two pairs of ice tongs, 5 pounds of cheese in the curd form , a ten cent can of axle grease, and a swamp hook.  This outcome of his undertaking has so far not been learned, but the sympathy of the whole community is with the fisherman.


Edwin Wiesner and crew will build the foundation for Wm. Albrecht’s garage the latter part of the week.


The writer and family and the A. Lindow family spent a plesant afternoon at H. Portz’s Sunday.
