Dan Cook returned Sunday from Will Miller’s camp at Park Falls where he has been this winter. He says Miller sent his regards to his old Greenwood friends. Before leaving he met Jno. Lucas of Phillips who had just been there to help initiate Will Miller, Jr., in the Odd Fellow’s lodge. Lucas also wished to be remembered to his old friends here.



An alarm of fire Sunday morning, shortly after eight o’clock, brought the fire department out. Fortunately, it proved to be but a smoke blaze about a chimney in the home of E. Derby near the Baptist church, and was extinguished without the use of the hose. Steam was up in just seven minutes time. The quick work of the department carries confidence throughout the city.


A clever crook named Ole M. Bjerke, with two aliases, has been arrested in Minneapolis for robbing flats in broad daylight. Last week he went into the flat of C.P. Brick, formerly of Greenwood, and stole clothing and jewelry to the value of $150, which he pawned.  Volk and Bro. have received a request from a detective for a sample of suiting to help in convicting the thief. Bjerke has a big prison record.
