Roof Fell In

Bill Nielson, of near Menoken, got up with the chickens Monday morning and came to town in style with a bobsled. "Bill" is always a good fellow to meet, and while he was engaged in swapping stories with friends and acquaintances, of which there are a large number here, Old Sol came out strong, and, presto, change! the snow was gone, leaving Mr. Nelson {sp} stranged without any sleighing. This did not discourage him in the least, for an extra crack of the whip sent his steeds over the bare roads at a two-forty clip and the stream of sparks flying out from the steel shoes no doubt set the prairie fire that raged that afternoon and evening.
