Mr. Ben Allen is off on a visit of a few days at Portage.
Mr. Everett is making the finest boots that have ever been turned out in this place, and is securing the patronage that his excellent work deserves.
Neillsville loses and Greenwood gains a whole-hearted young gentleman in the removal of John Hoyt to the latter place, where he goes to second Begley in his hospitable establishment.
Mr. Reynolds, one of the proprietors of the large saw mill at Unity, in this county, has sold his interest to his partners, Messrs. Spaulding and Van Hoosear, who are still adding to its capacity. They have recently put in a single block shingle machine which cut 37,000 shingles, exclusive of culls, upon its third day’s trial, and this with comparatively green bands. After a little practice, the foreman thinks they will cut 50,000 per day. The capacity of the mill is 30,000 in eleven hours. The rapid settlement of that part of the county makes the demand for the lumber brisk.
