Lyle Snyder came down from Duluth Saturday night for a visit with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. H.L. Snyder.


Mrs. H.M. Root, who ahs been sick at Fresno, Calif., is much improved and is expected home this week, accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. W.L. Smith.


E.S. Billings is home from Canby, Minn., where he had charge of the agricultural high school work.  He has been engaged at Lewiston, Minn. for the next year at an advance in salary.


Two veterans of the battle of Gettysburg, Geo. K. Redmond and Phil Brothers, left Saturday night to join those going to the great reunion held at the old battle field this week.  About 300 Wisconsin veterans are there.


The German Lutheran picnic at Bartell’s woods was largely attended Sunday.  The dinner was a real feast, food of the best and in abundance was there and all enjoyed the day to the utmost.  The children’s program was excellent.


C.C. Sniteman has completed a cement pier at his cottage, Villa Court.  It is a fine addition to the place and will give everyone a chance for fishing and boating from there.  It is 75 feet long and 4 feet wide.  There is talk of having a fireworks exhibit at the end of the pier the evening of July 4th.


The quarterly directors meeting of the Lynn Mutual Cyclone Co. was held at the courthouse Monday and the Lynn Fire Ins. Co. on Thursday.  Both companies are growing immensely.


Miss Blanche Shummel and Mr. Asa R. darling were married at the Congregation parsonage, June 25, 1913, Rev. Risser officiating.  The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Shummel.  She was born and brought up here and has many friends who have known her since childhood.  The groom is an expert butter maker and has charge of the Sidney Creamery.  Since he came here he has won many friends, not only with patrons, but in a social way.  We wish them happiness and success.  (Republican & Press)
