There were some lively doings at the Fred Foemmel home about 11 o’clock last Sunday morning when Mr. Foemmel discovered that the roof of his house was afire.  It just happened that all of his boys were at home that day and with their help he succeeded in putting out the fire after about 4 square feet of the roof had been destroyed.  The burning out of a chimney no doubt was the cause, the sparks, fanned by the high wind, igniting the shingles. The damage is covered by The Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Company.


The similarities of the names of two towns in the state, Granton and Crandon, are causing considerable trouble to both the railroad and public.  It is almost a daily occurrence that consignments of freight and express which ought to go to Crandon are received here, and visa versa.  The same applies to railroad tickets.  Last fall a young man from Chicago who wanted to go north to work in a lumber camp in the northern part of the state was put off here on account of a mistake the ticket agent there made for the reason above stated.  Last Tuesday a traveling shoe salesman was forced to spend several days here and await the return of his trunks which were sent to Crandon, a village in the northern part of the state.
