Werner Just arrived home Friday from Camp Grant where he received a discharge. He returned from France a few days ago and is one of the first Neillsville boys to get home. He saw a year and a half of service in France, having enlisted and gone across with one of the first units of American fighting men. He feels well, but glad to get home.

Will Huntley expects soon to have the assistance of a stenographer in his marble works as on Monday Miss Jane Huntley arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Huntley and expects to make her home there permanently.

Last week someone telephoned in an ad to the Times offering a rooster for sale. It was understood that the telephoner was Mrs. James Shummel and it was so advertised. Mrs. Shummel states that as a result of the ad, she had about a dozen inquiries for a rooster, which she knew nothing about and which she did not own. Mrs. Ben Thoma should have been credited with the ownership of the cockerels.
