One man was killed and about twenty wounded in a battle, not in France but near Withee only twenty five miles south-west of this city (Medford) last Saturday evening.
Two United States Marshalls called at the home of Frank Krueger, two miles south of the village to arrest two of the four Krueger boys who were slackers and were fired upon by two of the boys.
They sent for help and soon companies of home guards from Colby, Neillsville and Marshfield were on the scene, but not until the above mentioned battle.
