B.F. Long is building himself a small barn.

Sol. Jaseph of Neillsville paid our town a visit Monday and Tuesday.

E.A. Freeman spent several days last week at Altoona with his brother.

James Bottsford of Altoona was down Monday and Tuesday on business.

Joe Taft of Eau Claire is in town today looking after his village property.

Mrs. Kimball's mother and sister of Perley are here for a several weeks visit with her.

Our present pastor, Rev. Holt, spoke to this people last Sunday evening for the first time.

Mr. Salone's people went to Garden Valley Monday to attend the funeral of a little son of Albert Blake's.

A large party of people, old and young, gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E.A. Freeman for a surprise last Friday evening. Although the news arrived before the company, they were just as welcome, and a jolly time was had by all present.

Pat Beckett met with a sad accident last Thursday while pulling grubs on Nic Haun's farm. A chain broke, causing the sweep to fly back, hitting him on the leg just below the knee, fracturing one bone. Dr. Andrews was summoned, and in a short time the patient was resting easy. He is getting along nicely at the present writing.
