Friday night of last week the Ladies Aid held an experience sociable at the church for which they had been planning for a long time.  The attendance fee was only ? cents and included lunch, amounting to $8.17.  A fishing pond was an interesting feature for the younger folks and netted three dollars and 75 cents.  The telling of experience connected with earning the money by each was the principle program of the evening and was varied and interesting.  Susie Ketelle won the prize for having earned the largest amount.  This feature netting the handsome amount of over $28. Making a grand total of $41.71.  While it is safe to say that it was one of the most enjoyable occasions had for a long time.

Progress School has challenged Lindsey for a debate offering choice of subject.  It is useless to say that Lindsey accepted the challenge and set the date this Friday evening offering the subject “Resolved that our government is a government by political parties.”  A basket sociable will be held at the close, proceeds to go for beautifying interior of the school room.

Mrs. Thurman who has been residing with her son three miles south of Lindsey died in the early hours Tuesday morning.

While splitting wood Monday Peter Ketelle hit his foot and cut it quite badly with the sharp of the splitting maul, making it a very painful wound.

Addie Angel was reported on the sick list so that her school was closed.

Mrs. Herman Ulbricht has again resumed her duties at the post office.  They recently added a new show case to their equipment and have a fine display of candy that would do credit to a much larger place.
