Our old friend JACK WHITE has bought both of the Omro and Oshkosh stage lines, and will make money here after this road. We hope to show him what a deadhead customer can do for him sometime.

The Weyauwega Times Waupaca Correspondent announced last week that JOHN NELSON's family had been augmented by a pair of twin girls. Saturday JOHN was trying to find out who the correspondent is; and said he didn't want things of that kind going on unless he knew something about it
The marsh is still overflowed, and water is over the railroad track east of here to the depth of a foot.
Although April is nearly past, not much gardening has been done here yet, but your correspondent saw one man west of this village sowing grain on last Monday. The green grass begins to appear and the trees to put forth buds.
Miss Walker is away to Oshkosh to replenish her stock of millinery,
and will probably have a good variety of spring styles.

Eddie House who had the misfortune to lose one of his limbs this summer, has been very sick of late, his friends despairing of his life, but is now recovering. Dr. Oviatt, who has been attending him for a few days past, took from his side, last Saturday, nearly three quarts of serous liquid that had accumulated in the Pleura, or sac enclosing the right lung. Eddie says he can now whistle "Yankee Doodle" with ease, though before the operation it was with great difficulty he could breathe. The people of Clintonville are highly pleased with their new doctor, who has been with us but a short time.
Mr. Buckbee, proprietor of the Brookland House, is building a new

All busy preparing for the coming winter. Houses being bauked and others repaired. As for improvements going on in the place, we are not at a stand still by any means, as one may observe by visiting the place and noticing the buildings under way. I find in the way of improvements of this place since my last notes, that GEORGE VANORMAN, BAKER, BARBER and STROPE, have each built or are building new dwellings for themselves. Also JOHN VANORMAN, JOHN CURTIS, and S. A. PHILLIPS have built additions to their homes. STARKS and CLARK have both been adding beauty to their dwelling. STARKS by reshingling and siding his, and CLARK by the liberal use of paint A. MADIIA? and C. TOWN have been helping forward the secret of improvement by building each fine frame barns.
Other enterprises are being undertaken of which I will speak at some future time. These improvements of the last few weeks, is proof sufficient that we as a village are moving in the right direction.
