Will Opelt of Lindsey transacted business here on Monday.

Mrs. John Martin is on the sick list this week.

Miss Clara Arneson went to Neillsville Saturday.

The children of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Riedel, Harold and Georgie have been very sick this past week.

Mr. and Mrs. Waterman of Chili visited the Max Opelt and J. Martin family Sunday.

Mrs. Kutter formerly an old residence of this place died at Park Falls last week, was brought here Sunday and funeral services held Monday p.m. from Mrs. A. Hankeys,  a sister, and the remains laid to rest in the Lynn cemetery.  The sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of all.

A large number from her attended the mask ball at Lindsey last Saturday evening.

There will be a mask ball at the Lynn hall next Saturday night.

Last week Thursday two very conspicuous characters in the line of tramps were hanging around Lynn and vicinity and in an intoxicating condition went from house to house begging and when refused used the vilest of language.  In some cases boldly tried the door that had been locked against them.  It is said that they are living in some old shanties near the railroad crossing.  The owners of such shacks should look after such places and see that they are not a rendezvous for tramps.  They were seen in town again the fore part of this week.  We hope if they make any more disturbances that they will be grappled by the law.

Mr. Mayhew of Plymouth arrived last week and is visiting his son, Ralph.

Rudie and Rudolph Grassman of Clifton are visiting their cousins in the Fred Grassman family.

Fred Grassman transacted business at Marshfield, Monday.

Lovilia Sternitsky is visiting her brother and family at Mosinee since last week Wednesday.

Martha Sternitsky of Marshfield has been sewing for Mrs. R.C. Norman for the past week.

On and after Feb. 1st, 1914, the new reduced express rates go into effect on all interstate shipments.  For instance a shipment between New York City and Lynn now costing $1.00 after February 1st will be $.43.  A shipment between Chicago and Lynn now costing $.65 after Feb 1st will be $.35.  This same reduction applies to all interstate points in the United States and will be a great saving to the public.
