Carl Rabenstern and wife and Fre. Wolff and wife started for Chicago yesterday on a visit to the World’s Fair where they intend to remain for a week or more.

Miss Helen Franckenberg and mother, who have been making an extended visit with relatives in this city, returned to their home in Milwaukee last Saturday.

Will Woodward and wife have been on a visit to Milwaukee and Chicago the pst week. Will is at home now and once more the storm signal flags and the weather are in proper condition.

We have noticed since stoves went out of fashion, that our wood pile hangs out better, and August Snyder’s foot prints are no longer noticed in the snow around our woodshed. Oh, how blessed.

M. C. Ring and A. B. Marsh and their families have taken to the woods and are camping out in Withee’s grove for a short time. Al Marsh reports the mosquitoes in a good healthy condition, and growing.

A telephone has been placed in the office of e. D. Webster’s livery stable, which is connected the Greenwood Hemlock and Dells Dam, for the convenience of those wi-hug to converse with either of the above places.

Tobe Johnson, the jeweler, received a large new safe yesterday which he will use as a receptacle for his jewelry. With the combination sent he has been unable to open the massive doors, and no burglary has yet volunteered his assistance.

Grace Dickinson returned home from Sparta Saturday last at which place she has been visiting for some time. While away she learned to ride a bicycle, which she now handles with grace and ease, and which gives her plenty of out door exercise. It is a wonder that more ladies do not own wheels in this city. There is more exercise in riding a bicycle five minutes than there is in walking two miles.

A man who had probably never seen electric lights before was standing on the street corner gazing at one of the large arc lights suspended across the street the other day, and remarked to a by stander that those lamps must burn an awful lot of kerosene, but how in thunder did they lit them, or where did the oil come from? He was shown down to the electric light plant and informed that the oil was spirted trough the wires to these lamps. He was satisfied.
