It is about time that Chili is heard from again, though the news items might not be so interesting to everybody.  As it is, things here have been going the same old way.  We had a lovely fall, plenty of moisture for a while to settle the dust and afterwards the beautiful white snow which made it possible for our neighbors to come over the road to town, instead through the mire.


Sugar beet hauling is not quite done there are a few that are hauling yet. It goes better now than it did in the beginning.


Mr. and Mrs. Otto Walter drove over from the Town of Grant Wednesday to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Albert Degener for a day.  They report quite good sleighing.


P. J. Kemmeter is buying bolts here this year. It seems he needs quite an amount to fill contracts.


John Hefty has rented the Green building to move his butcher shop into it the coming spring.  He bought a refrigerator of Fred Hart of Granton, had John Lindow haul it over and put it in position this week. Mr. Green and Louis Kleinschmidt helped him.


Mr. and Mrs. John Fraser, Miss Agnes Pischer, Mrs. Robert Mundt, daughters Viola and Virene and Mr. August Henning spent Thanksgiving with Mr. and Mrs. Herman Henning. All enjoyed a very pleasant time.


Gust Pischer helped his cousin Paul Ketel with his work the latter part of last week.
