The batchelors [sic] had a re-union at Chili last Saturday and after discussing some important questions the following by-laws were adopted: First. Only use cuss words when darning your socks. Second. Show your respects to widows and young girls. Third. Make your escape if possible when an old maid is on your trail. Fourth. Never interfere with anothers love affair. They also appointed a committee to hang some of the newspaper reporters in the surrounding country before their next meeting is held.

Since the bottom dropped out of the soap market a barker in a certain village has announced to the public that hereafter every Saturday he will give two shaves for five cents and throw in a 10 cent cigar for good measure.

It is not always the case that an inspector should go direct to the seat of war, for if there happens to be some old milk cans and empty beer cases (?) not too far off from his route, what is to hinder him from making an investigation if by so doing he can throw the public off their guard and accomplish his business.

Chas. Bealer of Grand Rapids a brother of G. Bealer and Mrs. R. Guk, spend [sic] a few days here visiting relatives.

A. Lindow is helping Louis Knoop haul logs.

It is reported that Will Guk who has spent the winter in a logging camp at Tripoli will return home the latter part of the week.

Mr. and Mrs. Herman Jensen were Chili callers last Saturday.

Harry Eide installed a new cheese vat in what is known as the Dankemyer factory.

Mr. and Mrs. C. Bladl attended church services at Chili, Wed.

The following lines have been adopted for an Editor’s prayer:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Pay your subscription
And I will love you.

School will close Friday for a 4 weeks vacation.
