Granton (2 Jan 1919)

Mrs. Chas. Campbell of Neillsville is visiting the Frank Rogers family since Thursday.

Richard Anding of Altoona and Willie Breseman of Neillsville were here to see Santa Claus last Saturday.

Mrs. Carolina Lustig went to Neillsville for a several days’ stay and visit among old friends.

Lamont MacBride, a student at the state university, came home from Madison Saturday.

Mr. and Mrs. Rice Davis went to Neillsville Tuesday evening and spent Christmas with their son, Leland, and his family.

Reuben Pischer, who is making his home with and working for his brother, Alvin, on Route 1, went home to Neillsville for Christmas.

Chas. Babcock and his granddaughter, Agnes Wallace of Neillsville, visited relatives in the Edw. Schroeder family here last Friday.

W.J. Thayer and W.M. Winn canvassed the village for Red Cross memberships last week and secured 190 1919 memberships.

Mrs. Fred Hemp was over from Neillsville last Friday on a visit to Mr. and Mrs. Al. Jahr and Mrs. Jahr accompanied her home that evening for an over-Christmas stay and visit.

Guy Hales left for Madison Thursday. He had been honorably discharged from the army and expects to get back to his old job in County Agricultural representative work in Ozaukee County next week.

Mrs. Rath and son, Floyd, came up from Cataract last Friday on a days’ visit to Dr. and Mrs. R.R. Rath. Floyd will be remembered by many of our readers as the doctor’s younger brother who some years since stayed here with the doctor and attended our school. A blue star in Floyd’s honor adorns our school service flag and Floyd is one of the heroes who fought and bled in the battlefields of France and was invalided home on account of his wound—he having suffered the loss of his left eye and hand in the cause of his country and world freedom.

One of the happiest homes in this vicinity this Christmas was the Fred Vine home for their son, Ernest, arrived home on a surprise furlough from Camp Dodge, Iowa. Ernest was wounded while overseas, Aug. 1, and came to the states on a hospital ships Nov. 25th. He gets along nicely with the aid of a crutch. His injury was a bullet wound through one leg and into the other. His furlough expires Jan. 5th.
