Wenzel Sipple, who has been working at Green Bay since his cheese factory burned down last August, has returned here Saturday evening and held a meeting for the purpose of finding out if he could get any milk if he would build and as most all the farmers were willing to patronize hi, he contemplates building at once.

Truman Davis took in the sights at Neillsville Sunday evening.

Al Schuler disposed of his team of work horses to a party near Romadka last week.

Mr. Al Cronin, who purchased the Anton and Peter Schaefer place in York, started for Neillsville Tuesday afternoon and when arriving at the old Wm. Radke place, an auto met him and his horse took fright and started for the fence and in doing so upset the wagon and threw Mr. Cronin out and the wagon passed over him and the team jumped the fence, horse on one side and the wagon on the other. Mr. Cronin suffered three broken ribs and his arm is splintered from elbow to shoulder, which will lay him up for a couple of months at least. His father has been called from Sauk City, Sauk County.
