Fred Zuehlke attended the auction sale north of Chili on Tuesday.
Will and Chas. Guk shipped stock with the Equity Monday.
The snow storm Monday came unexpected and one would judge that it has been put on the free list.
Jim Quicker took charge of Henry Meyer’s threshing machine Tuesday morning and intends to finish up the season’s threshing.
Harry Eide is practicing Schafskopf and through the method expects to win a gander and a gobbler for Thanksgiving. Good luck to him.
J. Lehnherr of Cedarhurst has sold his farm and expects to move to Washington.
Herman Portz, who is a Bohemian by trade, has of late been a little down in his upper lip. His many friends that have been aware of the change thought it was caused by the near approach of winter, but now the fact has become known, that his grievance is directed toward the officials of the Panama Canal for not letting him blow up the Gamboa dike, instead of President Wilson. Mr. Portz some time ago fastened a brass button to one of his fence posts and connected it with a wire running due south and has spent his leisure time blowing up obstructions in E. Neinas’ fish pon located at the O’Neill Creek. That goes to show he was well qualified for the task that should have been awarded to him.
