Geo. Brooks apparently doesn’t mind the cold weather, for one day last week George was seen on our streets when the thermometer registered about 30 below, wearing a wide brimmed straw hat and carrying a fan, wearing a summer jacket.  It looked as though George was rushing spring weather.  We did not watch him to see how long he stayed outside, but we are of the opinion he had to hurry as Jack Frost was pretty sharp.
