All those who had plenty of time and patience stationed themselves on the Lynn road to see the Milwaukee automobile tourists go by Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  The first car, a big Overland had bad luck at the foot of the Schune hill a little ways east of here by having the drive shaft put out of commission. A bad culvert was the cause. The autos went to Neillsville via the middle road and if they are looking for bad roads to test the strength of the cars, they certainly found them between Grasser’s corner and the Buddenhagen hill.  Local automobilists are keeping shy of this road and will under no condition drive their cars over it.  It is the worst road in this part of the county and is no credit to the towns of Grant and Pine Valley.  Three cars had to be sent to the repair shop at their arrival in Neillsville.


Arthur Stallman spent Sunday at home.


Leon Drake has been visiting relatives at Viola for the past three weeks.


Notice - Highest market price paid for all kinds of poultry delivered at the car at Granton July 24th.  John Stanton
