Mrs. Julia A. Lindsey will leave Oconto next week for a visit of a couple of years with relatives and friends in Bangor, Me., her old home. Mrs. Lindsey will be much missed in social circles of this city, of which she was one of the earliest settlers - there being but three houses here when she came. The good wishes of friends go with her and they will anxiously await her return.
