A long spell of cloudy and damp weather with an occasional shower conduces to make the roads in muddy condition, which is unfavorable for automobile travel. But every of such weather shortens cold weather that much.
Lindsey’s young people were home for Thanksgiving as follows: Jennie and Leonard White and Mabel Broker from Marshfield High School, and Warren Robinson from Grand Rapids High School. Also, Mrs. Nora Klymer was home from her school. She is attending La Crosse Normal.

Chas. Knutson of Progress was up with his engine and sawing rig, recently and sawed wood and threshed for Otto Bredeman and W.J. Robinson. Then Bredeman went down to Progress with his threshing machine and threshed for Knudson. It make a fine neighborhood outfit and can be run with few men.
This is said to be the age of commercialism when every man, firm or corporation counts the dollars and the time. But it does not seem to apply to the town of Rock. For the town board went to the expense of calling a special meeting to decide a question which it would seem that any three men in the town might agree upon, and the small number of votes certainly indicate that the voters who elected the board last spring thought they ought to be capable of handling a matter of no more magnitude than that one. Then too, there is soon to be another special meeting to raise money for a bridge. Surely the taxpayers have a right to comment upon such unnecessary expense and such short sightedness.
