Snow was still on the ground when this photo was taken in 1910 at the Hewettville School. The stocking caps and the woolen clothes provided warmth. One-room school houses were usually heated by a single potbelly stove--those seated close to it got warm quickly and then roasted; those at the edges remained chilled on one side and tepid on the other. There were some days when ice had to be broken out of the water bucket.

The 1910 photo below was loaned to the Press by Vera Shumway of Neillsville. Pictured are:
