Word was received to the effect that the Soo Line has decided that their new depot at New Richmond is to be a counterpart of the one at Colfax, and built of Colfax sandstone, too.

It has been suggested that an auto trail should be established leading directly west from Chippewa Falls to Colfax, Wheeler, Boyceville, Downing, Glenwood City, New Richmond and then to St. Paul. In as much as it would likely follow the Soo Line, The Messenger suggests that it be called the Soo Auto Trail.
