Mr. Arno Ross and Fred Olson drove to Lindsey last Thursday.


Herbert Brown returned from camp at Tripoli last week.


Miss Lottie Albrecht and Mrs. H. Wordell drove to Chili last Friday.


Mr. Arno Ross and Fred Olson were at Marshfield over Sunday.


Mr. J. Hatch returned from his visit at Stevens Point on Monday.


Mr. H. Albrecht sold a horse to Mr. H. Witt, a farmer residing two miles northwest of Chili.


Mrs. J. Hatch is having dental work done at Stevens Point.


Miss Mary Grobe is on the sick list.


Mrs. R. Steckert of Chili spent Sunday afternoon and evening with Mrs. Wordell.


Mr. and Mrs. H. Wordell were at Marshfield between trains last Saturday.


In our items of two weeks previous, saying that Mr. Wm. Schmidt came home from camp on Saturday and would return the following Monday, such were the intentions, but Mr. Wm. was seen in our midst last Wednesday and says he has decided to remain at home for the remaining season.  Let’s see you again, Bill.


Mr. H. Brown, who has formed a habit of sending his nose out ahead to test the weather conditions, found that member badly frozen when he reached the factory last Friday.  Mr. Braun says he’ll walk backwards hereafter.


Mr. H. Albrecht delivered his horse to its new owner last Thursday, but before leaving home the horse got drift of the change that was to be made, and not liking the idea of leaving its comfortable quarters and kind master, for such it did have, knocked it head against the manger and caused a swelling, hardly noticeable but large enough to queer the sale.  Florie is back in her home again.


Frozen noses, ears and cheeks are quite fashionable these days.


Mr. Tobie’s horses were stuck in the drift on Henning’s hill last Friday for fully a half hour, at times only heads were visible.  Mr. Henning happened along and with the aid of a few kind words and a club succeeded in bringing them safely through.


Mr. and Mrs. Wordell attended the services at the Methodist Church Sunday evening.


Holver Eide was thrown violently from his pony while turning the corner at the creamery last Sunday evening.  But for the deep snow into which the horse ran, Holver would have had a nice walk home.


Mr. and Mrs. John Hoffman, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Neinas and Mr. Ray Ure and brother spent Sunday at Mr. Wordell’s.  Ray overhauled the engine in the creamery during that time.


While driving to Lynn last Friday, an elderly man dropped in at the creamery and held one of his feet against the stove, saying he was in an awful hurry.  Chances are he’ll stop in here on his way back to warm the other.


Miss Verna Keller of Granton is spending her three week vacation at home.


Mr. R. Washburn, our Lynn depot agent, was seen standing on the platform one day last week all dressed in his "Sunday go to meeting" clothes, and a lantern in his hand.  Most likely he’s been expecting the train.


Mr. Harold Hatch attended the funeral of his nephew, Master Nick Spindler of Stevens Point, last Sunday.
