Doubtless this winter will go down in history as a mild one.  Although it was cloudy all day Tuesday it thawed so that water ran off the roofs.  Wednesday it rained.

Friday of last week Wesley Harnick loaded his household goods on the car and moved his family to Pittsville.

Albert Broker and his wife came to visit his parents arriving on last week Friday’s train from Milwaukee will spend a couple weeks in Lindsey.

A.J. Prest had business at Granton Saturday of last week where he delivered a fine Guernsey bull calf for which he received the handsome price of a hundred and twenty five dollars.  This calf is the offspring of his best cow dropped last spring and sired by the Florence bull.  It went to Greenwood.

The snow of Sunday helped out the sleighing for the loggers and wood haulers.  But we need more snow to make good sleighing.

Mrs. Prest called on Mrs. Robinson Saturday last.

The Ladies Aid will meet with Mrs. Altenburg who lives west of Ingles corner and just over the county line, Thursday of next week which will be February 5, and will meet there before dinner.

Prof. M.H. Jackson of Wood Co. Normal will deliver a lecture in Lindsey church this Friday evening.  The lecture will be along the line of education and will be free to all.  There should be a full house to greet him for he is a speaker of great ability and pleasing manner.

Those who failed to meet the town treasurer when in Lindsey before will have another opportunity to pay tax Friday, the 30th.

W.J. Robinson received his buckwheat flour back from the Pittsville mill Monday and it is a fine lot too.

Ed. L Haertl went back to Neenah Thursday of last week where in company with David Drens of that city they have contracted to handle and put in a new process chemical composition flooring which is fire and water proof and sanitary.

Our winter is not equal to Florida as a letter from a friend there states that they are having lettuce, string beans, other garden vegetables which we will not be having in our gardens here before the middle of next June.
