The fine weather can certainly be said to have taken a sudden and unexpected cold wind at the rate of about 45 miles an hour, accompanied a with  24 hour blizzard and snow storm., that would do justice to a December period, and all this Monday.


The sawmill finished at Crouch’s and pulled over to Johnson’s on Saturday.


Mesdames Simpson and Muir were shoppers at Lynn Thursday of last week while the train made its roundtrip to Romadka and back.


Mr. and Mrs. August Broker made an auto trip to Marshfield Friday of last week so that Mable had another opportunity to be home over Sunday.


Mrs. Grover Spencer, nee Irene Hegge, formerly of Lindsey, now of Drake, N.D., came on Friday to visit old friends for several days.  She went to Cashton and Westby on Monday and will return to Lindsey before going home.


Mrs. Will Opelt went out to her mother’s last Saturday for a two week visit.


We venture to predict that the farmer who has not dug his potatoes wishes he had.


In one of the Lindsey items last week we should have said that Mrs. Lura Haertel called on the Ketelle’s to have been correct.


Another correction that was in our mind to make for some time but overlooked, was in connection with the painting of the Progress Schoolhouse.  S.R. Tilton should have had the credit of that work.


Lindsey has suddenly or otherwise become noted for its divorces.  It is a sad plight to befall any family or community.  A wise writer had a true incite to human affairs when he wrote, "Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith."
