There is righteous indignation
among the people around Mille
Lacs lake over the reported inten
tion of certain parties to haul rock
for building purposes from Spirit
Island. This island is the most
interesting bit of scenery in tho
county and is simply a pile of
huge boulders thrown up in
pyramid hape covering about one
half acre. Th island is totally
devoid of vegetation and can be
seen from all points on the lake.
It is situated about four miles
from the south shore. Why any
one should go so far to get rock
when there is any quantity of rock
just as good along the shores and
at the same time tear down one of
the lakes greatest attractions it is
hard for most people to under
stand. The island belongs to the
people and should be protected
from any such depredations.
