One of the worst storms of the season, with heavy snow and terrible gale which swept the snow up in great heaps higher than your head, everyone was snow bound Monday morning and had to dig themselves out.  There was no mail on Monday, the mail carriers were unable to get through.  Several of the teachers had difficulty in getting to their schools.  Miss Gladys Wage reached here through the efforts of her brother-in-law, Mr. Winn, who was the first one to make a track on the road between Lynn and Granton, and with no small difficulty he made the trip and landed Miss Wage safely at school.


Miss Elsie Neitzel got as far as Lynn and had to abandon the trip, being unable to get through east of Lynn as the drifts were so high that a team could not get through.  Several men worked all day to clear the road between Lynn and E.F. Brooks’ place.


Misses Hazel Washburn and Gladys Ure came over from Neillsville to spend Saturday and Sunday.


Miss Irene Mahne of Neillsville visited her cousins in the John Ure family Saturday and Sunday.


Miss Esther Grassman came over from Neillsville Saturday and visited her parents from Saturday until Tuesday.


Pearl Tilton of Lindsey transacted business in this place last week.


The masquerade was well attended and all report a good time.
