We certainly have had beautiful weather lately.  Haying and harvesting are going right along.


The Chili ball team went over to Granton Sunday and defeated the Granton team by a score of 14 to 3.  It was quite a game and nothing happened to disturb the fun of it.  Up to the 6th inning, it was almost an even game, standing 2 to 2, but then it changed.


This coming Sunday there will be a game between the Chippewa Falls Indians and Chili.  The Indians are known to be good players and it undoubtedly will give the Chili team a chance to use all their ability for playing.  A very good game can be expected.  No undue behavior will be tolerated by the management.


Mr. L.A. Allen, Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Wendorf, Mr. and Mrs. A. Hogenson and son Ores, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Grantworth and son Henry, Mr. and Mrs. Clark Waterman, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Degener, and Miss Vivian Degener made a fishing trip to the Yellow River by motor cycle, buggy and hand car, and had a very enjoyable time which they all would like to have repeated.


Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Ferrell enjoyed a visit of 2 of their nephews, one came over from Madison with motorcycle.


Mr. Pratt Dawes commenced the carpenter work on his house.  Mrs. Ben Hallock is helping him at present.


Will Voigt and Albert Lindow commenced the carpenter work on the Lutheran Church this week.  The work will be pushed so to have it finished before fall.


Louis Reichert has a gasoline house put up and has also put a wall under his flour house.


A real strike happened on the section here.  The men are striking for higher wages.  Now the section boss can run over the section all by himself and has no chance to quarrel with anybody.


Mrs. Clara Knoop and her parents visited with Mr. and Mrs. L. Knoop last week, returning home this week Monday.


There were two dances in the hall last week - Steckert brothers on Wednesday and a free dance given by Jake Hoffman Friday.


The Misses Haidee and Pearl Beeckler were visitors at the Clark Waterman home last week.
