It Has Been a Busy Week in justice
Court, Six Prisoners Being
The Crimes Charged Ranged From
Petty Larceny to Bill-Beating
Saturday evening was a busy time
withrJudg-e Dickey's court three pris
oners being brought up before it. The
first two were Jack Flynn and Fred
Beaumont, who were charged with the
larceny of a miscellaneous assortment
of chickens and pork "on the hoof."
Beaumont, when he heard of Flynn's
arrest and that a like fate awaited
him, took flight but was rounded up
Friday afternoon by Minneapolis cop
pers. Sheriff Ciaggett went down
Saturday and brought him back in
company with another, W. H. Hutch
ins. Both Flynn and Beaumont
pleaded guilty and were fined $40 or
forty days. Beaumont paid his fine
and was released, but Flynn is still in
durance vile. Hutchin9 was charged
with taking a livery horse without
settling with its owner, J. E. Moore, of
Milaca, and the court assessed him
or twenty-seven days and as the
fine has not been forthcoming he is
stil numbered among Sheriff Clag
gett's star boarders.
Monday afternoon George Howard
was arrested on complaint of Ed Knowi
ton, charged with forgery, and on be
ing taken before Judge Dickey, pleaded
guilty and was held to the grand jury.
Howard's forgery was in the form of a
note and chattel mortgage which he
used as collateral to secure a small
loan. He failed to pay the loan when
it fell due and after some time Mr.
Knowiton started to proceed against
the mortgagor. An investigation
showed there was no 9uch person and
the acknowledgement of the' notary
proved a forgery. The young man's
friends would be loathe to believe the
charge had he not pleaded guilty.
For some time parties have been
helping themselves to timber on lands
owned by Matt Jost in the upper part
of the county and his loss from this
source'is now estimated at about 700,-
^090 feet, part oak atfa- part pine. Last
week warrants were issued for Andrew
Brodiu and Andrew Larson charging
them with being implicated with the
theft. On being brought into court
they waived examination and furnished
bonds for their appearance at the Sep
tember term of court.
How the Day Will Be Observed in Prince
ton This Year.
The committee of the Grand Army
Post, appointed to arrange for the ob
servance of the day, has completed its
labors and this week gives the public
the program. Judge Searle has been
secured to deliver the address at the
opera house, a fact which will be
greatly appreciated by his Princeton
comrades. Ail ciyic societies are cor
dially invited to participate in the ex
ercises and earnestly requested to ap
pear in the procession in a body. They
will notify Marshal Spauldmg of their
intention that he may arrange the
order of the procession.
Sunday, May 26, memorial services
will be held at the Congregational
church at 10:30, and all are cordially
invited to attend
On Memorial Day the procession will
form promptly at 1:30 P. M. on Oak
street, the right resting on Main in
the following order.

to the cemetery.
The program of exercises at the
opera house is as follows:

Minnesota Crop Conditions for the Week
ISnaiug May 13.
The week was cool except on the 9th,
with frosts on the morning of the 11th.
The temperatures on the morning of
the 12th were below the freezing point,
and on the 13th they were about the
freezing point. Frosts so early in May
very rarely cause injury. Except for
snow flurries in Polk county on the
12th, the Red River valley was practi
cally without precipitatioa during the
week elsewhere there was consider
able cloudy weather, with rains on the
6th, 7th and 9th, which were heavy
enough in some southwestern counties
to delay corn planting, and very light
in small part of the southeast. The
rains were of very great benefit to late
sown grains, insuring an even stand
and good growth. The cool weather
has started the wheat, oats and barley
to stooling, a process which was sus
pended during the warm weather of
the previous week. In the Red River
valley the dry weather has allowed the
low places to dry out, so that wheat
seeding is finished on lands that could
not be reached heretofore, and oat and
barley seeding has also gone on rap
idly. All the early sown grains are
growing well, with good stands and
healthy appearance, and the late sown
are coming up well. The preparation
of the soil for corn and potato planting
is going on, and large areas of these
crops are already planted, and in a few
places the early planted are up. The
same applies to flax. Some sugar beet
seed has been sown in McLeod and
LeSueur counties. The prospects for
the clover and timothy crops are good.
A Fainting Room.
The census office at Washington has
set aside a room for the care of girls in
their employ when they are attacked
with a fainting spell from overwork on
the counting machines and the exces
sive heat. This room is in the charge
of a trained nurse and has proved not
only a convenience, but a necessity
during the summer weather. In all
the other departments in Washington,
the work of employes is lightened dur
ing the heated season, but the census
work must needs proceed regardless of
It seems heartless to work girls until
they must have a special room for
those who break down furthermore it
appears to be necessary. If they were
nourished and strengthered with "Gol
den Grain Belt" beer, they wouldn't
breas down. Those who drink it find
they can stand a great deal more, for
it is a powerful nerve tonic made from
the purest barley malt and hops Try
a case at home. You can be supplied
by Henry Veidt, Princeton, Minn.
T. F. Scheen has had a splendid veg
etable and berry refrigerator made to
order according to his own ideas and
it proves to be a very valuable piece of
furniture. Within it he can store ber
ries and green stuff enough to supply
the entire village and as it is possible
to keep the temperature near forty the
fruits, etc., keep longer and come out
in better shape than they would other
On the evening of May 14th a large
number of friends and relatives gath
ered at the home^of Mr. and Mrs. W.
E. Brown to celebrate the birthday of
Fred Brown and Charles Bullis. The
boys were presented with many useful
presents as mementoes of the event.
Ice cream, cake and fruit were served
as refreshments, after which ail de
parted to their homes after a pleasant
At a special meeting of the village
council last Monday evening Marshal
Newton applied for a two months' lay
off, with the right to appoint a man to
serve in his stead. The council con
sidered the matter and finally informed
him that his request would not be
granted but if he desired to take a rest
he might resign. This he did imme
diately and the council appointed Owen
Newton to fill the vacancy.
Those who did not attend the recital
of "Maurine" as given by Miss Kane
of Minneapolis, last Saturday evening,
missed a rare treat. This beautiful
story of Maurine, whose sacrifice of
love on the altar of -friendship, so
beautifully set forth by Ella Wheeler
Wilcox, was rendered by Miss Kane
as very few can portray it. She was
deserving of, and should have had a
more cordial greeting from the people
of Princeton. Those who were for
tunate enough to hear her are loud in
their praise of Miss Kane's superb
qualities as a dramatic star and re
gret the small house that g/ee,ted her
last Saturday night.
An exchange makes these truthful
observations: "If there is anyone who
has gained the idea that the prosper
ity of a town, village or city is guaged
by the wealth of its inhabitants, they
are mistaken. History shows us that
it is the uniformity with which the
citizens pull together, when any im
portant duty is to be accomplished that
builds cities and makes them prosper
ous. A man with a thousand dollars,
backed by genuine interest in the wel
fare of his town, can do more for its
upbuilding than a millionaire who
locks up his money and snaps his fin
gers at home progress."
VOIUME XXV. NO. 23.
The Third Regiment, N. G. S. M.,
Will Explore Mille Lacs County
The Start Will Be Made From Milaca
to March to BrainerdRe=
turn via Duluth.
For more than a year Col. C. A. Van
Duzee has been planning to take his
regiment on a practice march instead
of going into camp at Lake City and
last week the commander-in-chief gave
Orders were immediately issued
which state that the start will be made
from Milaca on or about June 5, and
later orders will fix the date exactly
and give fuller particulars. This means
that this section will be visited bj 400
or 500 men, who have never been in
this country before and the beauties of
Mille Lacs will be widely advertised.
The conditions will be, as nearly as
possible, those which would surround
a regiment of infantry in a hostile
Each man will carry on his back
every article he will need for the ten
days, including half a shelter tent.
This will be the first time shelter tents
have been used by the national guard
of this State. Each man's personal
equipment will weigh about forty
Two days will be spent at Brainerd
in rifle practice. A range will be pro
vided, 600 yards in length, with six
targets. The Third regiment band
and a detachment of the hospital corps,
with an ambulance, will accompany
The regiment will go by special train
from Brainerd to Duluth on June 15,
where the day will be spent in a parade
and review, and in the evening a re
union will probably be held of all the
old members of the Fourteenth Minne
sota who live in that' vicinity.
Under Two Flags.
In this week's issue of the UNION we
begin the publication of "Ouida's"
masterpiece, "Under Two Flags." It
is a remarkably strong story, one that
will hold the reader's interest from be
ginning to the end. This is the first
time its publication has been attempted
by a newspaper, the original story be
ing much too long for newspaper use.
The version which we will give our
readers is carefully condensed and con
tains all the interesting features of the
author's work. See that your subscrip
tion is paid in advance, for you will be
sorry to miss a single chapter.
The local military company have re
ceived a shipment of shelter tents
which will be used on the "hike" to
the lake. Each man will carry one
half of a "pup" tent on the marchi and.
the regiment will be ready to camp
wherever night overtakes it.
Mr. and Mrs. Edelbrock, formerly of
St. Cloud, have been in the village ior
the past few days. Mr. Edelbrock left
St. Cloud a year or two ago for Chi
cago, where he engaged in business,
but his wife's health failed and they
are now seeking a Minnesota home
Andrew Beckman was shot in the
back by a companion, Albert Lodin,
last week at Athens, Isanti county.
The Cambridge newspapers state that
all the parties to the deal were filled
with prohibition whiskey at the uime.
Beckman will probably recover and
Lodin is out on bail.
William Johnson, an attorney of
Rockford, 111., was here Tuesday. A
writ of habeas corpus was issued by
Judge Searle at his instigation, by
which he hopes to obtain possession of
a child now being held by its uncle
contrary to the wishes of its father.
The writ is returnable May 25.
Princeton is putting on its prettiest
dress. Visitors always express their
pleasure when they visit the village,
for no town is more abundantly blessed
with beautiful trees than Princeton.
Close to the village there are many
beautiful spots and at present the
woods are filled with wild flowers. If
your child persists in running away,
think of your own childhood and what
a charm the woods had for you.
Milaca's special bond election was
held Monday a-nd resulted in an over
whelming victory for the supporters of
the bonds. The opposition had talked
loud of what was likely to happen and
those who were in favor of building
the school were considerably fright
ened. The count, however, showed
that about three-quarters of the people
wanted the new school house and un
less some new and unexpected entan
glements come they will secure the
much wished for improvement.
