King Winter came down upon us
in full blast yesterday, bringing the
first snow of the season. Farmers,
look to your wood piles! As long as
we can keep our feet on the stove, we
shall not grumble if anybody else
does the same.
Confirmation exercises were held in
the Enden school-house Sunday, con
ducted by Rev. L. M. Skunes. Those
who were confirmed are: Victoria
Johnson, Anna Swanson, Thilda Se
bjornson and John Monson.

County Treasurer Olson was seen
on our streets last Saturday.

Sunday, returning home Monday.

The free dinner and auction at K.
O. Enutson's, on Thanksgiving Day,
was a grand success. Rev. Skunes
makes a capital auctioneer, and the
bidders also deserve all praise. The
personality of Lars Mikkelson also
added much to the successful turn-out
of the affair. The dinner was fine,
and the delectables were too numer
ous to enumerate hers. The eatables
were appreciated, too, at least by us,
for we found it much easier to get to
the table than to get away from it.
The ladies deserve the greatest praise
for their efforts and their work.
Last Saturday, a shooting match
was held at K. O. Knutson's place.
Sixteen geese and four turkeys were
carried off as prizes by the various
sharpshooters. The following marks
men received the most prizes: Bern
ard Swanson, four geese Ingman
Teige, three geese Hiram Knutson,
two geese Chas. Knutson, two
geese A. G. Olson, two turkeys.
The shooting was very accurate, and
the distance was about one hundred
twenty yards. Anton Swanson de
serves praise for missing the target,
thereby leaving it blank for the next
shooter Ole K. Nelson would surely
have hit the bull's eye if the bullet
had hit it Andrew and Oscar Oseth
did well in missing the river bank
A, G. Olson is worthy of mention as
an overshot, his bullets doing much
damage to everything but the target
Harry Roberts and Nick Lund were
famous for their O's Ed. Haugen
showed great courage in leaving the
hairs standing on Ole Romoen's head
Ingman Teige and Halvor Kallock
are commendable for keeping Char
ley Knutson from capsizing when he
took aim and last, but not least, the
presence of Andrew Swanson added
much to the peaceful carrying out of
Johannes Wee's cottage was burn
ed to the ground last Friday evening
while the old gent was away from
home. His clothing and many valu
able papers and documents were con
sumed in the flames. The Big Woods
fire department, mounted a la horse
back and bicycle, arrived in time to
see the blaze.
