Neillsville, Wisconsin Area (Jan - 1902)


E. E. Brooks, wife and child visited here a few days the past week on their way home to Port Orchard, Wash., where Mr. Brooks owns a share in a newspaper.


Mrs. A. M. Pilcher has been secured for an evening’s entertainment in the Methodist church, on Wednesday, Feb. 5th. Further notice will be made later.


T. G. Owen will preach in the Unitarian Church next Sunday with subjects as follows: Morning, "The Eternal Years," and evening, "Immortality the aim of Evolution."


The large family paper, The Times, and the Weekly Inter Ocean for $1.35 a year; Or the Times and Weekly Wisconsin for $1.30 a year; Or The Times and Weekly Sentinel for $1.35 a year.


Don’t forget to go and see the big show, "Under Two Flags," Saturday night.  They have a very large company and carry a full and complete outfit of scenery for the production of a first-class and up-to-date play.


Dr. E. L. Bradbury was at Hixton for a week during the last illness of his father, S. Bradbury, who died on Wednesday, Jan. 8, and was buried on the following Saturday.  Deceased was 69 years of age.  Mrs. Bradbury also went down to attend the funeral.


Judge James O’Neill delivered a most able and interesting discourse Sunday evening at the Methodist Church on "The Way of the Transgressor," to a large and appreciative audience.  His range included natural, legal and moral law, and the subject was handled in a way to instruct as well as entertain his auditors.


E. M. Stevens has gone to the Pacific coast on a prospecting tour to see how he likes it, and may conclude to make his home in the west.  He has disposed of his carpenter shop building to Geo. Smith, the merchant, who thinks of putting in a line of flour and feed.  At present the north side club meets there for social purposes.


Quite a neat little farm house has been built by C. S. Stockwell on his land south of Ross Eddy, on the west side of the river. There ought to be a bridge across the river on the section line at that point.  It will be indeed a pleasure to have Cy for a neighbor when, as years roll by, the writer settles down at the Eddy, in joyous riverside peace.
