A GOOD WORK.
Good Keading Matter Furnished Luinber
men by the W. C. T. U.
For a numbei of years the National
Women's Christian Temperance Union
has been carrying on a work that has
received as wab very fitting, the sup
port of the lumbermen. In Minnesota
the work ha? foi number of years
been in charge of Mrs Effie A. Burgan
of ^Rrjypceton During the past four
wmter? she has been pi-evented 'by-
health fiom making personal visits to
the camps, but she has in no other way
allowed her work to suffer During
the past winter ninety-three camps in
the Minnesota woods were kept sup
plied with good reading matter Lum
bermen and others have responded to
her requests for aid. Contributions
both in money and reading matter
have been freely given. That her
labors have been appreciated is indi
cated by the large number of testi
monials received from loggers and
camp foremen. One incident illus
trates the more than passive interest
that has been the result of this work.
A Sunday school class of fourteen
voung men went into as many different
camps for the winter. Their teacher
finding it a hard task to secure reading
matter for them, applied to Mrs. Bur
gan She wrote to a number of unions
and fourteen barrels of good literature
was soon on its way to those camps.
This winter the work is to be prose
cuted with new vigor Mrs. Burgan
has so far regained her health and
strength as to again engage in active
labor and has planned to visit many of
the camps She will thus be able to
direct the work more intelligently.
In this she should be aided by every
one who is interested in maintaining a
high plane of intelligence and morality
among the loggers. Contributions of
magazines and other choice reading
will be gratefully received, and by her
and others, under her direction, will
be judiciously distributed where they
will do the most good. Lumbermen
throughout the State can further aid
in the good work by forwarfling to her
the names and addresses of camp fore
men and thus aid in widening the cir
cle until man.) camps in the State shall
show the influence of the efforts in be
half of higher morals and greater in

I next met them at Antietam, where
the ground was strewn with dead and

boys touching words^ to** mother or to
sweetheart, telling(them how they had
done their duty. That night at the

OLD MAIDS AND NEW.
The Old Maids Convention at the Opera
House Was Amusing.
There have been several conventions
held in Jesmer's opera house, but that
of the old maids which occurred there
last Tuesday e\ ening probably created
a greater stir of local interest than
any of its predecessors The parts
were taken by severa} of the promi
nent young ladies costumed in the
mode affected b\ the feminine gender
when their last hope of capturing a
man has gone up in smoke The mem
bers of the convention were laying for
the men and during the evening sev
eral hard hits were madfe. The con
vention finally came to the conclusion
that there were no chances of mating
in Princeton and decided to start on
the "jerky" for Oklahoma where men
were numerous and women scarce.

tion was about to disperse Dr Make

aai appearance and very shortly made
over the whole cast and instead of
heart-broken old maids the stage was
filled with beautiful, blushing, dim

Everything passed off smoothly and
with great credit to the management
and all the participants and, what was
best of all, with a nice fat balance on

Diphtheria at Opstead.
The little village of Opstead on the
shores of Mille Lacs lake has been
struct with an epidemic of diphtheria.
A large number of cases have been re
ported and some have resulted fatally.
Last week an application for aid was
made to the authorities of the town of
Princeton, Opstead being situated in
the northern extremity of the old
Last Friday one case of diphtheria
of a virulent type developed in Prince
ton and considerable nervousness is
manifested by our citizens. The little
seven-year-old son of William Bigelow
was stricken and as he had been at
tending school, parents of the pupils in
the old school house are very appre
hensive. At this writing the little fel
low is getting along nicely but is not
considered out of danger yet.
A Splendid Dance.
The masque ball given by Gen. Cus
ter Camp Sons of Veterans last Thurs
day evening was one of the most suc
cessful and enjoyable the boys have
ever given. There was an excellent
attendance and many of the costumes
were unique and handsome. At mid
night the Ladies' Aid society served
the^supper in G. A. R. hall and added
new laurels to their reputation as
chefs. The dance lasted until early
morning and'all went home well Satis
fied with the entertainment. The
best part of the whole affair was the
profit which the boys secured and
which goes to enrich their treasury.
Cruelty to Animals.
Several residents of Dalbo have com
plained to the authorities of this vil
lage that one of their neighbors, who
has a large stock of .horses, is allowing
them to starve and die from exposure*
The citizens say he lost 40 head of
horses last year and although he was
arrested and fined he appears to have
forgotten the lesson. The.complainants

A Sudden Death
Mrs. Carl Pischke, a young German
woman of aboui 18-years, died sud
denly yesterday morning and the
neighbors thought under suspicious cir
cumstances, too. Therefore Coroner
Tarbox was called upon to make an in
vestigation. He visited the scene and
on an examination of the body was con
vinced that the unfortunate woman
died of blood poisoning. Mrs. Pischke
gave birth to a child Nov. 27 with no
physician in attendance The mid
wife who handled the case thought
was all right but the re-
sult proved otherwise Under the cir
cumstances the coroner decided no in
quest was necessary!
