Mrs. Ring and Miss Ethel have been identified with all the educational and social activities of the city and their departure from this city is a matter of very deep regret to their great circle of friends here.

Richards of Lime Springs, Iowa, is here also and when she goes home, the Misses McKenzie will drive their car through to Iowa on their return trip and take Mrs. Richards with them. Mrs. J.H. Johnson of Chetek, a sister of Mrs. Waterman, came down last week to spend a few days visiting the Waterman guests.
