     The Civil War interrupted the publishing of the Free Press. It was found-
ed in 1860 and the editor, N. V. Chandler, was called to the front in '62.
On his return ten years later the paper was resumed and since that time not
a single issue has been missed. From 1872 to '92, John P. Blake vnd W. F.
Hill, from 1892 to 1899, edited the weekly. Since the latter date George
Searans has been continually on the job.

     Pea growing and, of course, pea canning, rank first in importance in
Dodge county community. Dairying, and hog raising are of significant impor-
tance to the section. Many cars of live stock are shipped from Reeseville.
     Reeseville has the distinction of being a small village with big city
conveniences. Streets are concrete paved, and a modern waterworks and sewer-
age system is in operation.
