Roy Blocsidge and family had a serious experience the 4th. While driving his wife and child in the side-car of his motor cycle towards Marshfield in some way the rig tipped over, throwing all on the ground. Roy and child escaped injury, but his wife got quite badly hurt. She was taken to the Marshfield Hospital, where she was at first given up for dead, but upon examinations later on, hope was revived. It was found that she had 5 ribs broken, one of which punctured the lungs, but not so serious. She is still at the hospital and hopes for her ultimate recovery are fair.

There were several private parties in the surrounding country which began in joyful spirit. A few of these parties ended in more or less uproarious and fighting spirit, causing in some cases, black eyes and stabbing. As nobody got killed, we probably have to pass these minor incidents over with the admonition to boys, don’t do it again. We have enough serious times on hand without making trouble for ourselves here.

A.W. Wendorf has his house now on the new basement and has carpenters at work remodeling the house. It will be quite nice looking according to the plans, when finished. Mrs. Wendorf and children have gone visiting while the house is undergoing these changes.

Aug. Reimer bought one of those Flying Dutchman hay loaders which are making haying easier for men, and are savers of time, when help is scarce, as it is this year.

H. Degener has a second hand hay loader for sale, which is ing good repair, and good for many years to come.

August Kempin and family, and Mrs. Degener made a flying visit at Alfred Kempin’s home Monday night.

Mr. Pulz will soon commence to build his new home here at Chili. He things it is good enough to live.
