"And still I was not, born in Bos-
ton."
ue
Mr. Ike Cilly is going to occupy
lawyer Dent's place this summer.
That West Branch drive is surely
well hung this time.
Mr. George Warren came up from
below Wednesday.
For want of time this week several
advertisements go unchanged this is-
We would be glad to receive items
irom the farmers ior publication.
"Oh, the sand, the beautiful sand,
tilling eyes, ears,and h1, it fills all
the land
Messrs. D. H. Murray, Andrew
Cater and N, M. Smith went below on
Wednesday.
Won't somebody shoot that brute
of a dog, whose unearthly howling
makes the night hiedous.
Boston may be the "hub" of the uni
verse, but then some cursed mean
spokes radiate from that hub.
Another soul has been added to the
population of Princeton it is a boy,
jiud Mr. and Mrs. Mell Tibbets are
happy^
Village Treasurer Cowles, has ap.
pointed Mr. I. D. Gilman as dog ex

Perhaps you don't know it, but Dan
Caley has as good soda water in his
Drug Store as can be had in any of the
cities*.
Do you owe the printer anything?
If you do pay him, for by Jupiter he
needs it right badat'present.
We regret to state that no action
whatever was taken in Princeton in re
gard to decorating the graves' of the
soldiers whose remains lie interred in
the West Branch cemetery.
We were mistaken when we stated
there was no insurance on Mr. Frank
AcL.ms house, it was insured in the St
Paul Fir^St Marine Company, of which
Mr. N. P. Nelson is agent, for &780.
Caley & Neely are the agent3 for
the Champion Reaper and Mower, by
all odds the most complete machine in
the market for utility and durability
it cannot be surpassed Caley & Neely
are also agents for the Gorham Culti
vator.
We did not mean a burying-ground
for the body after the spirit had fled
we meant a place where the "Som"

The cut worms have, raised the old
Harry with some of the corn in, this
aeighboihood several farmers have
had to replant whole fields, and they
have no assurance but what the cursed
woims^will destroy it again.
'Rad Ross and Toby, the philos
opher, ain't much of a success as mule
teamsters, at least one would not have
thought so had he witnessed the per
formance ofthje long-eared cusseswe
mean the mulesone day last week.
It was amusing to see the' philo
sophical Toby leading a mule down
through the alley, 'Rad following with
mule No. 2, and the procession wind
ing up'with several small boys carry*?-
ing pieces of the dilapidated harnesses.
At least one of the county officials
oflsanii county has a mighty poor
opinion of the people of Wyanctt and
Spencer Brook, so we judge from the
manner in which he talks.
We can and do remember a Favor or
good tnrn rendered, but when one is
constantly reminded 'by ^sarcastic al
lusions and patronizing airs of the fact
it makes him wish jie w,as,...io, Louisi

While Tom Caley was trimming Al.
Jones's hair on Thursday, the"letter

Mr. Lewis D. Dent and lady were

Decoration Day was Well observed
at Elk River a large cuncourse of peo
ple participated in the decorating
ceremonies a gentleman from Minne
apolis delivered the oration there was
an ice cream and straw berry festival at
Music Hall in the evening.
Mr. Hen. Campbell*and Mrs Camp
bell, of Elk River, celebrated the first
anniversary of their marriage, by a
picnic excursion to Twin Lakes last
Friday. Quite a number of the friends
of Mr. and Mrs. C. were present. We
extend our heartiest congratulations,
and hope they may live to celebrate
their golden wedding.
A man by the name of George Pat
ten, who owns a farm in Baldwin,
Sherburne co., left for the Black Hills
from this place on Monday his bag,
gage consisted of an ordineiy-sized
haversack, oxen, horses or mules he
had none, he intends hoofing it al\tne
way. Patten is a gritty little cuss and
swears he'll reach Deadwoojd or burst.
For the information of the Elk River
Star we would state that Mr. Ross,
the attorney for the prosecution in the
"Cow" Walker case, knew very well
that Mrs. Walker couldut testify
against her husband, but if the at
torney on the'other side allowed it,
why, it was all right but the attor
ney on the other side objected, hence
she did not restifv.
The iollowing from the Elk River
News by Mr. Staples: "We called on
friend Dunn, of the UNION, who hesi
tated somewhat at first to give us his
baud, but on our insisting, he gave us
a lies? iy gi'asp, saying the reason he
hesitated was that his hand was dirty,
(he was distributing) who ever heard
of a printer's hands being dirty?
He seems to be doing a good business,
certainly he publishes a spicy and
newsy lite le paper, and now having
the whole field to himself he will un
doubtedly make a paying thing of it."
The Princetons held a meeting Jul
the Auditor's office last night, the at
tendance was large thirteen names
were enrolled on the club list Tues
days and Fridays were appointed ds
the regular -practice days, A chal
lenge was sent to the Elk River boys,
for them to select a day and the
grounds on which they would play the
Princetons a practice ga_nie previous to
the 15fch June. We are heartily glad
to see such a lively interest manifest
ed and all working so harmoniously
together. Wa feel assured if the boys

Major C. M. Wilson, of I?WL
came in on the stage Friday evening,
and put up at the American House
he remained until Sunday, when he
left for Spencer Brook and Cambridge.
Mail routes Were his principal busi
ness, but we guess the Major will be
consideiably pu/y/.lexlas to how he will
report, he has heard so manV^different
tolies, but if he heeds our advice he
Will feport in favor of the Spencer
Brook^Livonia and Elk River route
the people of those towns atnd 'sur
rounding country and the people of
Princeton are unanimously in favor
of this route. Major Wilson is a jovial
whole-souled gentleman and has many
friends in Princetonhe's one of those
fellows who make friends wherever
they go.
The West Branch main drive is
again hung up, Clough's, Pratt &
Rraes's and iWnsend's crews all came
down on Sunday and Monday,'at pre
sent there seems to be T?r little pros
pect of that drive coming down this
season. The East Branch drive is pro
gressing slowly, the rear was two miles
this side the Big Eddy last night. At
last reports th^ crew that went back
on Bradberry had not reached the
main river, but it js thought they will
make it all right. The heavy showers
of the past two days will have the ef
fect of raising the water several
inches.
FridayFrom Mr. Tom Gillespie,
who has just returned from Cambridge,
we learn that Ance Hayden's wanegan
was at the bridge there last night a
jam had formed at the bridge, but the
boys will clear it all off to-day he says
the logs are running splendidly be
tween here and Cambridge.
I 1
We made a trip to Cambridge last
Sunday, and we have a few remarks to
niake: The crops, especially wheat
avd rye, are looking splendid, no sign
b)F grasshoppers anywhere. Things
l^ok flourishing in the neighborhood
oi Spencer Brook, several new dwell
ing houses and barns are going up. The
logs were lying high and dry on the
banks, where the water had fallen so
rapidly and left them, although on
Monday they were running pretty
.'thick past Cambridge. The land be
tween here and Cambridge in the main
is a very good farming region and
that makes us i.bink how foolish peo
ple are to go out to the "hopper,
dozed'" prairies in the western and
southern portions of the state, while
here in Mille Lacs and Isanti counties
there are thousands of Ood farming
lands lying idle, wood and water in
abundance, and no grasshoppers to de
vour the ciops for it is a well-known
fact that'gi asshoppers Un' flourish in
the timber country
Cambridge is not a very extensive
town^-about half as large as Prince
Ionbut it is nicely situated on the
east bank of Rum River. There are
spme fine private residences and sever
ajl good stbresTjin the place. The ho
tels, of which there are three, can't
compare with those of Princetour the
Sheldon House is generally recognized
as the best, at least it receives the
largest amount of patronage from the
traveling public,- Ero. Magnus and
his Press seem to be flourishing. We
had an introduction to Mr. White, (he
county auditor, he is a nice sociable
iellow, and we have no doubt but
what he makes a first-class official.
The people of Cambiidge are anxious
for a railroad, and the question was
put to us several times, "What's the
matter with your railroad committee?"
The Isanti county folks are willing and
ready and want to co-operate with
Mille Lacs county in this railroad mat
ter, and we inquire *'What is our rail
road committee going fo do about it?1'
,W-*NT JN'LIFB.There is nothing
more fortunate for modern genius than
to be born poor. The "silver spoon"
cla^s are a very comfortable people, no
doubt, but the great trouble with
them is, their education is mainly of
this order if,they don't become very
gieat they are extremely likely to be-
VoVntetlJe very apposite. There is no
mfdaie:gfound for them, for they were
not taught to regard any, and conse
quently they are as a general thing un
fit lor it. Poverty has helped men to
solve some*of the greatest problems of
life. Hal|jts brave ^eds,hove been a

It is right for the public to be informed
that my wife now acknowledges that
malice prompted her to make the false and
disgraceful charge which she recently ac
cused me. She admits that her object was
to get revenge tor a moderate whipping
wfhich I had given her child: "and that she
hoped to, get me out of the way. She was
instigated to do this by our neighbors,
who loo a great interest ia our affairs, es
pecially 0eorge King, SjIas Howard and
LoomBjrry. The latter gallantly hauled

Mr. Berry took so much interest in my
wife to the neglect of his own.
