FISH STORY Six fish, countless miles of walking, and a liberal ration of “roasting” constituted the spoils of the chase as secured Friday by George Rowland and Sam Miller. Early in the morning they drove to Seven Mile Creek on a fishing expedi tion. They unhitched their horse from the buggy and tied him to a tree. When ready to return home, no horse was to be found. The after noon was spent in search of the missing animal, without result, and it was not till the next morning that the horse was found on the road near the fishing ground. The boys declare that a hawser will be taken along on the next trip to moor the horse. The six fish secured are considered very valuable.

PASSING AWAY OF SAMUEL BOLES The funeral of Samuel Boles, a veteran of the Civil war and for forty eight years a citizen of Grand Rapids, or Centralia, as it was known in his time, was held Saturday morning. The funeral service was held in the Catholic church, with Father Hugen roth in the pulpit. Samuel Boles was seventy-five years old, having been born September 7, 1829, in Lougbbrickiand, County Down, Ireland. When he was twenty five years old he moved with his parents to America, locating in south eastern Wisconsin, near Kenosha. It was here he met Miss Sarah Blaney, who became his wife in 1856. In the same year be moved to .Centralia, to the farm which he owned at his death. Here it was that seven child ren were born to Mr. and Mrs. Boles, all of whom are living. They are: W. H. Boles, Wausau, Wls.; John J, Boles, Kellner, Wis.; Mrs. W. H. Carey, Hugh Boles and C. E. Boles, all of this city; A. P. Boles, Nekoosa; and Lawrence Boles, Marcells, Illinois. Eleven years ago Mrs. Boles died. The final illness of Mr. Boles began April 5 and ended with bis death at his home on May 4. His family consisted of seven child ren, five boys and two girls who all lived to a ripe old age. The first death occuring about three years ago, when his brother John, died at the age of 77, followed a year later by a sister aged about 71. He is the only member of his family who came to this country. All of his brothers and sisters continued to live at the old home near Newry, Ireland. Samuel Boles served with distinction in the Civil war, and was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic. The Grand Rapids Post of the G. A. R. turned out in force in memory of their comrade, and accompanied his remains to their last call of “taps” in Calvary cemetery. Mr. Boles was too well known in Grand Rapids to need any words of commendation further than the just mention of his high sense of honor, and his genial spirit of good fellow ship. It was his boast that he had attended every funeral held in the vicinity in years, since each was held over a friend of hjs. In return a great number of bis friends attended the last rites held for him, and the funeral cortege was the longest seen here in years. CONVICT JADACK’S DEATH Word was received in Grand Rapids Monday morning by circuit court officials of the death of Frank Jadack, at the state prison at Waupun. Physical breakdown and mental worry over the disgrace of his im prisonment were given as the causes of his death. Jadack was sent to Waupun last fall from Juneau county, where he had taken a change of venue, believing that his case would not receive au impartial hearing in Wood county. The offense for which he was incar. cerated was a statutory one, the complainant being Katie Weise; whose home is near Marshfield. County officials say Jadack bad a -mild criminal record before his imprison ment last fall, and that be was a well known offender in nearby cities. ARE YOU ONE OF THEM? A writer has well said the knocker is built on a different plan altogether. The kicker sees objections to certain things and offers some idea of im provement, but the knocker just sits and growls about everything but never has an idea to offer that would better the condition! He growls at the churches, jaws about the schools, finds fault with the actions of society, snarls about secret societies, howls at the city dads, denounces congress because it is too slow and gives it a double dose if it does something, frets about what the state legislature does and then some more about what it does not do, hits the railroads, pounds the government and goes into spasms over the way the world was built, when the probability is he couldn’t build a hencoop and run it properly himself to say nothing about the weightier matters. He is cynical, narrow, unappreciative.- If the good Lord had combined the milk weed and strawberry plant so as to have had grown strawberries and cream on the same plant this knocker would have stood and made a “holler” because there was not a grist mill and bakery attachment to it so that he could gather ready made short cakes. In fact be can see no good in anything and woulden’t know what was good if he saw it in bis own door-yard on a wheelbarrow. The knocker is n. g., and how he ever happened is one of the mysteries. No community is ever made any wiser, better, happier or noblier for his existence, for he always sees the bad and never the good. —For bale — A fine residence property consisting of ten room bouse and three lots.
