Mrs. Capt. T. J. La Flesh starts Tuesday for Cadillac, Cal. Where the captain is engaged in the logging business. Mrs. Reitz will accompany her as far as Walla Walla, Wash.

C. S. Stockwell was over to Marshfield this week to assist in work in the third degree to the Masonic lodge. After the lodge adjourned, watch was kept over Mr. Stockwell until one o’clock a.m. But not withstanding this, the main street of Marshfield presented a grand display of grindstones, drags, harrows, salt barrels, horse powers, corn shellers, etc. lying in the middle of the roadway. Friends of Mr. Stockwell, however, hustled him out of town before the night watch woke up, and it is quite likely Mr. S. will escape deserved punishment.
