After the rain Wednesday of last week it turned cold so that the roads were a glace of ice and traffic was completely tied up for a few days. But by Monday it had sufficiently moderated to allow the ground-hog to make his appearance, though we have heard of no one who saw him. Snow squalls Tuesday and cold Wednesday.

Prof. H.H. Jackson of Wood Co. Normal, Grand Rapids, accompanied by Co. Supt. Geo. A Varney were in Lindsey Friday of last week, visited the school and as announced for a lecture that evening. Mr. Varney gave a short talk in the interest of the schools and was followed by Mr. Jackson who gave his famous lecture entitled “Squeeks.” He spoke for about an hour and a half and most of the time kept his audience in an uproar of laughter as he humorously portrayed the things in life persons will do on impulse or in a fit of anger when, afterwards they will feel sorry for it. The church was full and doubtless everyone went home benefitted as well as being pleasantly entertained.

Herman Hahm had the wood sawyers at his place the latter part of last week and Herman Ulbricht had them at his place Monday. Fred Anderson’s outfit did the sawing.

Albert Broker and wife returned to their home Wednesday after a couple of weeks visit with his parents.

Jacob Ketelle is visiting his parents the present week from Woodville. He expects to move his family to Canada in March.

Chas. Espe received a fall about two weeks ago and hurt his chest, but did not pay much attention to it, only rubbing it with liniment. But as it kept paining him he finally consulted a physician and found that the collar bone and one rib were broken.

Theodore Moe and brother came on Wednesday’s train and will spend a few weeks with his step father C. Espe while he is convalescing.

J.R. Crouch had the misfortune to lose a heifer recently, but he had another cow come fresh so he keeps his number up.

It was recently reported in these items that A.J. Prest’s best cow had dropped a fine Guernsey bull calf when a week old for $100 to Mr. Scott Davis at Granton.
