Another cold wave and snow storm visited us the latter part of last week and probably has put the finishing touches to all that was spared a week before.  There will be few apples, plums, etc., if any, in this state, this season.  Barley and oats which in some places were more than two inches high will no doubt have to be sowed over again.

Will Ebbe the well known auctioneer of Marshfield conducted the sale.  It pays to employ as good an auctioneer as Mr. Ebbe, for a cheap man is expensive at any rate.
