Mrs. Daniel Marooney, of Northfield is very low with grip.

Mrs. J. R. King is slowly recovering from the grip after a three weeks' seige.

Miss Matie Speigelberg is slightly improving but is not past the danger point yet.

The new hardwood floor has been put in the saloon of George Rauschenberger and it shines like a mirror.

G. W. McCormick has the foundation stones on the ground for a fine residence which Pray Bros. will build at once. After a two weeks tussle with the grip, we were glad to see John Todd on our streets again, but are sorry that he has since had a relapse.

We are traveling in snow drifts all the way from a foot to five feet deep and the teamsters carry snow shoeless to shovel themselves out when they get stock.

Today the Jacob Rauschenberger lumber mill starts up with a full crew. The mill has a a daily cutting capacity of 4,000 feet and a four days supply of logs, again demonstrating that the Hanna prosperity boom has struck our town with full force.

John R. King has received notice of the death of the wife of his son Delos in St. Louis, Mo. Delos was born and brought up here but is at present the superintendent of the St. Louis Corset Factory. He has a host of friends here who sympathize with him in his great troubles.

A week ago Sunday the M. E. church furnace was flooded with water so they could hold services and last Sunday it was blockaded with snow so they could have no preaching, thus punting us in mind of the pendulum of an old Dutch clock, no sooner does it reach one extreme than it takes the back track to the other.
