Bicycles are fast making their appearance about town.


John Drummond can now say hello to everybody from his home.


Miss Mabel Bishop enjoyed a musical treat at Marshfield last week.


Mrs. Nelson Waterbury of Loyal is quite ill with a complication of diseases.


Mrs. Elinora Payne of St. Paul is visiting Mrs. Zeph Sanford this week.


John Shanks is having the house recently bought fixed up for occupying.


Mrs. A. Bloomenstein of Loyal was the guest of Mrs. John Bryden one day last week.


Miss Daisy Hartson of Humbird arrived here for a short visit with relatives.


Mrs. Lute Meek and children left on Tuesday for Wibaux, Mont., to join her husband.


A sewing bee will be given Saturday by Mrs. Ralph Meek for Miss Elsie Barlow.


R. Tuttle has just returned from delivering a team sold by Robt. Syth for $450 to John Bulger of Black River Falls.


A letter from G.W. Drinkwine informs us that he has sold his place at Wenatchee, Wash., but is not definitely located elsewhere.


John Arends returned Tuesday from Random Lake where he had been called by the illness of his mother, whom he reports improving.


Dr. C.E. Bersee of St. Paul, as will be seen by his ad elsewhere, will visit Greenwood this week for the fitting of eye glasses.


Oscar Hogue has a four year old coal black stallion that is a well bred beauty. It is reported that Withee parties are after him.


The Wisconsin Central train stopped at Loyal again Tuesday to get on an off track car, arriving here six hours late. Only feelings were injured.


Miss Alice Gries entertained with a coaching party and tea the first of the week Misses Mabel Rossman, Philena Smith, and Alta Wessenberg.


A. Seibold went to Marshfield Monday to visit his son Harry, who was badly injured by the cars at Rib Lake about two weeks ago, and is in the hospital.


Oscar Hogue, who is assistant foreman for the Medford Lumber Co., drove down Saturday for a home visit while they are waiting for water to finish the drive. He reports the roads above Curtiss in fearful shape.


The condition of the Wisconsin Central stock yard here is a disgrace to the city and should be condemned by the proper authority for humane reasons. The young animal mired there the other day is good ground for action.


A farewell reception was tendered Mrs. Lute Meek and Mrs. J.E. Noyes by the Royal Neighbors Monday, and Tuesday evening a farewell reception was held for Mrs. John E. Noyes by the Eastern Star lodge. Both will be long remembered occasions.


The funeral of Zeph Sanford last Thursday was very largely attended and the floral offerings beautiful. A floral wreath and pillow were contributed by the Maccabees and some carnations by the Royal Neighbors. Members of the lodges acted as pallbearers.


The suggestion has been made that part of the new water main extension be to the high school for the reason that only a single stream can be thrown there now, and that should fire destroy the school the loss would fall on the tax-payers to say nothing of the lives imperiled.


As will be noticed by his advertisement, F.M. Carter announces his services to the public as an auctioneer. The excellent satisfaction given by him where his services have been called for is evidence of his ability in this direction, and the owner of the Gleaner personally recommends him to all in need of a first class seller.


Prof. Rosenthal of Marshfield was in Greenwood Saturday, by request, to propose a home talent light opera, the proceeds to go to the high school piano fund or for a public library or other cause. He is to return probably in a few days to confer with those of our people interested in the move. Prof. Rosenthal states that he is satisfied there is plenty of material here for a fine production.


Mrs. J.E. Noyes and children and Miss Lola Mason, of this place, will leave for California Friday where they will make their future home. The reporter hears that Miss Mason has in mind returning to Greenwood in  year or so—if she doesn’t become weaned in the meantime.  Greenwood is always ready to welcome its exiles back, and the many friends of Miss Mason will hope for her return.


Obit: Goodwin, Effie May

Died, April 19, after three weeks illness, Effie May, the two years old daughter of Wm. Goodwin of the Braun Settlement. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at one o’clock from the Presbyterian church this city, Rev. W.T. Hendren conducting the service. Mesdames J.C. Baker and Hiley Pratt and the Misses Varney kindly assisted with music and neighbors generously aided in helping the bereaved parents through their tie of sorrow. A few members of the Woodmen and Beaver Queens lodges were present and several sympathying friends. Effie was the twin sister of Eva who died in 1905. Five sons remain, one having died in 1903. Mr. and Mrs. Goodwin wish to express their heartfelt thanks for the many acts of kindness shown them during the time of their great sorrow.
