Mr. and Mrs. Geo. A. Austin go to Sparta today and from there go to Waseca, Minn., to visit for a couple of months.

The university contingent returned to Madison Monday - Marvin Jahr, Leland Balch, Archie Page, Frank Crocker, Guy Youmans, Bert Hart, Clara Tragsdorf, Elsie King, Marion O’Neill, Helen Marsh, Grace Grow and Bess Kennedy.


John Wolff has been entertaining relatives from Plymouth recently.

A very complete account of the murderous opera house disaster will be found elsewhere in this paper.


L. F. Waggoner and Miss Christine Hoganson were married Dec. 25.  The Republican and Press force is doing real well in that line.

Any irregularity in the delivery of the Times should be promptly reported to this office.  Our mailing machine is the best made, doing its work swiftly and automatically and simply cannot skip a name.


The Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Co. held the annual meeting Tuesday at the court house, re-electing the old set of officers except in the case of vice president, Geo. A. Ure succeeding Mr. Austin who, having sold his farm and moved into town, could no longer act.  Sam Hutchings is president, Henry Sternitzky secretary and John Ure treasurer.  The company is in grand shape and growing rapidly.


The past week has been characterized by what an aged lady called abdominally cold weather.  Sunday morning the record was 32 below, and Monday followed suit with 38 below.  Pumps that were not frozen up were scarce.  Plumbers were kept busy repairing broken pipes, and many a householder sat up with the furnace for a best girl until after midnight to save the situation. The earth is certainly cooling off.
