The W.C. Washburn home is entertaining relatives, a brother and niece of Mrs. Washburn’s from Sioux City, Iowa.


The Washburn School began Monday with Miss Redwick from Rice Lake as teacher.


Lindsey school did not begin Tuesday as reported last week that it should.  Superintendent Varney informed the clerk that he would not transfer Mrs. Clymer’s certificate and that the district would forfeit its state and county aid if it hired her without the transfer from La Crosse County to Wood.  An appeal was taken to State Superintendent C.P. Carry from that decision, so school was postponed until Mr. Cary decides the matter.  The district is practically unanimously in favor of Mrs. Clymer, as was manifested at the annual school meeting and the interest seems to be growing since the difficulty became known by the district.


Warren Robinson, one of the graduates, took his departure Monday for the county seat where he entered the high school.  His father made the trip with a team.


Leonard White just over the Co. line entered the high school at Marshfield and Geneva, his sister goes her third year.


Henry Johnson, a Lindsey graduate, will go to Wausau to take a business course.  He is to be there by the 8th Inst.


Mabel Broker enters the Marshfield High School, a graduate of Lindsey’s 1913 class.  Her father took her on an auto trip Sunday to her new school home.


Again Lindsey can boast of having a blacksmith shop.  Wesley Harnick and family arrived Friday from New Lisbon and is located in the Hahm building where you will hear the anvil ring.  Lindsey’s school enrollment will be increased in number by their arrival.


P. Ketelle and son had four head of their fine jersey herd at the Marshfield fair and captured 4 first prizes.  This marks a spirit of progress and is of local interest to the community.


Henry Weishoff has moved his family into the Stanford building.  He formerly occupied the Hahm building.


A.J. Prest had a Guernsey herd of sixteen head to the Marshfield fair and captured sweepstakes prize on the best display of that famous dairy breed, besides eight firsts, 2 seconds and a third on individuals.  It is of more than passing interest that this herd is headed by a two-thousand dollar bull.  Henry Florence, who is the owner of this animal, was asked to set a price he would take, and fixed it at the figure.  Mr. Florence is now employed at the agricultural college of Iowa, hence this opportunity of Lindsey to has so valuable an animal among its herds.  Mrs. Prest is also keeping two cows and their calves for the same party and started Monday with the whole herd as above for the fair at Neillsville.


P.J. Tilton made a trip to Grand Rapids Saturday, returning by way of Marshfield and Chili Sunday.


Max Opelt called on his brother Will Sunday enroute to Dexterville by auto.


Albert Broker and wife came from Milwaukee on Friday’s train to visit the former’s parents.  They returned Monday.


B.C. Canfield and son Don, now living at Dunkerton, were in town a few days last week calling on friends and looking over his property just south of town.  They returned Saturday.


The quill pusher of the Pittsville Record, McKee, on an auto trip, passed through Lindsey Sunday afternoon.


Lindsey’s pioneer merchant, Aug. Broker, made improvements on his property by repairing the sidewalk in front of the store.


Your correspondent had a communication from Richland Center last week by which he gets the information that the condensary is paying one dollar and fifty cents per hundred for milk testing four percent.  But even at that we have that section beat on natural advantages of milk production.


Will Haertl is building the addition to the Progress school building and goes back and forth on his bicycle with railroad attachment.


The wood house of the Lindsey school is to be newly shingled, the clerk having received shipment of shingles Friday from Pittsville.


Last week H.O. Hazel took his outfit to the town of Cary to drill a well.
