CLARK COUNTY WISCONSIN--1893 by C. S. Stockwell; Neillsville, WI (Contributed by Alice Braun).

Section 33--Geo Hiles, Davis & Starr Lumber Company, J Ley, A Ley, Wm Marg, F Pofahl  










From the "Republican and Press," of Neillsville, Wisconsin, we learn that a man by the name of Crosby was shot and badly wounded by I. (Isaac) Fields, the keeper of a bagnio in that place.  No arrests have been made.  Also that a cowardly attack was made on Mrs. Schroeder of Lynn, by Frederic Pofahl and an unknown party.  The Quarrel grew out of a dispute about a watering place for stock, and on Monday Last she was assaulted by Pofahl and another party, who knocked her down and threw in the water and attempted to drive a team of horses over her but she caught hold of the bits of the bridles and was dragged out by the team.  They knocked her down again and one of them inflicted a severe cut on her forehead with a knife, after which the inhuman wretches departed leaving their victim senseless on the ice.  They were arrested and taken before Justice Sturtevant, of Neillsville, and at this hour we are unable to learn what the outcome of the trial is.

THE LYNN MUTUAL INS. CO. [Advertisement]


For thirty-seven years the Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Company has been one of the most successful cooperated institutions conducted by farmers in the country. According to its last report, there were nearly 5000 policies in force carrying insurance for over ten million dollars, and the company is steadily growing. It has an enviable record of fair and just treatment of all policy holders, conservative, careful and economical management and sound business principles which has made it known throughout the country as a most successful organization.


It was organized in 1878, Thomas Reed being the first president and Charles Sternitzky the first secretary. The first twenty-five policies were issued to David Hillert, Mapleworks, Henry Neinas, Fremont, W. Behling, Nasonville, Wilhelm Lachman, Lynn, C. Sternitzky, Lynn, F.
