I'm a real estate agent, and was showing a house to a gentleman today on Hwy 73, just south of Neillsville by about a mile. In the basement of this house - which has been vacant and for sale for well over two years - I found three shelves which had many Ball canning jars sitting on them. The shelves are lined with a December 10, 1972 edition of the Marshfield Herald. Apparently it was mailed to the subscriber - the name stamped on the front is "Truman Pederson, RR3, Neillsville." If this means something to someone out there, if it's something that someone would like to have, let me know. I don't have it, but I believe it could be arranged at no cost.
