J.T. Reis, a Pleasant Prairie farmer and one of The Progress's good friends, was a pleasant caller at our sanctum on Monday of this week. Mr. Reis formerly lived in Indiana, about seventy-five miles south of the lake, but the many advantages offered in North Dakota induced him to come west about three years ago. He says they are having a hard winter back in his old home state, and a lot more snow than there is here, which is something unusual.February 11:

Pleasant Prairie: Mr. and Mrs. John T. Reis bought the Chickering Grand piano of Mrs. Hannum as a birthday present for their daughter, Mae.
