The Hammond ball players went to Millville Sunday and got the finest beating of the season. Score 13 to 7. The Millville players were clearly too much for them from the start. The boys were well used and say they do not mind being beaten by so gentlemanly players as are the Millville boys. Next Sunday they go to Mazeppa where they hope to regain their reputation as players.

As heretofore he will buy poultry, veal, lambs, and hides for shipping purposes, with his business headquarters in this village. Miss Sarah Ahneman has been entertaining her cousin, Miss Anna Ahneman of Rochester, the past ten days. The latter has just recovered from a serious illness caused by blood poisoning contracted during the performance of her duties as a nurse in St. Mary's hospital before coming here and her visit proved very beneficial to her health. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Sand are rejoicing over the birth of a girl which arrived Thursday morning. A little girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Yotter last night. Philip Arendt marketed a bunch of 34 hogs at this place last Saturday with Jud Duncan, netting him over $300.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Yotter and family moved into their handsome and commodious new residence last week. The new building is situated across the road from their erstwhile home and is handsomely built inside and out. (Ted Mehrkens home) The second Mazeppa boy to meet with misfortune this season is Joe Colling of St. Paul, whose wife has suffered with consumption since January and who died on Friday evening last. The funeral occurred on Sunday in St. Paul, the home of the decease. Henry, the 15 year old son of Deidrich Windhorst met with a serious accident while hauling hay on his father's farm last Friday. The hired man took the bridles off the horse while watering them when they were suddenly frightened, running over several wire fences, throwing the boy from the wagon fracturing the right elbow joint causing protrusion of the bones. He was immediately brought to the office of Drs. Cremer & Claydon where the fracture was reduced after removing the entire elbow joint articulation. The boy will have an ankylosed joint but much better than if the arm was amputated as first appearances indicated. He is at present remaining in town under the doctors' care and is improving rapidly.
John Poncelet was in charge of the Theilman depot last week during the absence of the regular agent. John expects soon to take charge of the Zumbro Falls station to relieve Miss Minnie Smith, who contemplates taking a month's vacation, which will be spent in New York and other eastern states.
