Fratt Has Narrow Escape.
Harry Pratt, the Zimmerman sport
ing authority, and G. H. Pennison,
station agent at Princeton, dined at
Hill's fashionable restaurant in Min
neapolis on Sunday and, following
the meal, lounged around the office,
told fish stories and smoked cigars.
By some means or other Harry's coat
became ignited from a cigar-lighting
apparatus and before it was detected
a big hole was burned in the left
shoulder of the garment.
"Fire!" yelled the boy who dis
covered it, and in the twinkling of a
pig's whisker two men appeared with
chemical hand grenades, one of which
was smashed over the incipient confla
gration. Simultaneously a waitress
rushed from the dining room with a
pitcher of ice water and poured it
down Harry's back.
There was fun galore among the oc
cupants of the office as Harry stripped
off his coat and vest and threw them
on the floor. A doctor who was
present made a careful diagnosis and
found a blister about the size of a dime
on Harry's shoulder, co which he ap
plied some oleaginous agglomerate
and charged three dollars therefor.
Harry was then persuaded to set up
the cigars for the crowd, which
amounted to two dollars more. He
figures bhat the incident cost him
altogetherincluding the destruction
of raimentabout twenty dollars, and
swears that never more will he lounge
around a cigar stand and tell fish
A Stiff Sentence.
Alfred Anderson, the young man
who was accused of causing the death
of Ethel Grant of Isanti, by ad
ministering carbolic acid and the
heads of sulphur matches, was found
guilty of manslaughter in the first
degree at the session of the district
court in Cambridge last week, and
was sentenced to sixteen years at hard
labor in the state prison at Stillwater.
If guilty, and the jury said he was,
the punishment is none too severe.
Mr. Godfrey G. Goodwin, of
counsel for the defense, is nob satisfied
with the outcome and proposes to ap
peal to the supreme court.
A Pitiable Story!
Charles Keith tells a story of two
men who were working for the same
firm and the proprietor found it neces
sary to discharge one of themhe had
one man more than he could find
work for. The man discharged waited
upon the proprietor and this is the
tale of woe he told: "Please, sir, I
think you have made a mistakethe
other fellow should have been let out
instead of me. You see, sir, I am a
poor, unfortunate mortal my wife
secured a divorce from me awhile ago
and now that I am fired I will
probably starve to death. My wife
used to maintain me, sir, when I was
not workingin fact at that time I was
not strong enough to work much.
Now I pray you to take me back, sir,
and let the other fellow go: he has a
mother who is strong and is willing to
work for hima strong and willing
mother or a strong and willing wife is
a fine thing for any man to have. I
am unfortunate, sir, but he is in luck.
Please take me back and fire him."

It "Will Pay You to Watch Her.
Set your alarm clock before you re
tire on the evening of November 26
for 1:12 the next morning. When the
gong goes off arise and gaze at the
moon. At that time it will enter the
penumbra. Watch it closely and you
will perceive that at 2:11 a. m. it will
enter the darker shadow and that from
3:14 to 4:36 a. m. it will be totally
eclipsed. But don't get impatient.
Wait until 5:38 and see it leave the
shadow. At this time it will scarcely
be worth while for you to crawl into
bed again, so you might as well watch
Luna until she leaves the penumbra at
6:38. Then light the kitchen stove,
prepare breakfast and call your wife.
Held Libelous Per Se.
The state supreme court handed
down its decision in the T. F. Norton
libel case last week and found that the
newspaper article published in
Norton's paper pertaining to K. H.
Burrell is libelous per se. The
syllabus is as follows:
A newspaper article stating in effect
that a county treasurer, with
knowledge that he had no right to do
so, withheld as such county treasurer
for two years school funds belonging
to a school district, during which time
he "had the use of the school district's
money either on deposit in the bank
in which his son is interested, or
otherwise," charges malfeasance in
office, and is libelous pre se.

home last week at the advanced age
of 86 years. Mr. Lucus was born in
Ohio and was the inventor of the
mower, which in turn led to the in

binder that have revolutionized
farming. He sold his invention and
rights to Cyrus McCormick, who
brought the machine to public notice,
and later into general use, building
up the McCormick works and winning
fame and fortune.

NATURE TEIXS YOU.
As Many a Princeton Reader Knows
When the kidneys are sick, nature
tells you all about it. The urine is
nature's calendar. Infrequent or too
frequent action any urinary trouble
tells of kidney ills. Doan's Kidney
Pills cure all kidney ills. Princeton
people testify to this.
Mrs. S. Farringtbn, Princeton,
Minn., says: "About two years ago
my kidneys became disordered and
my back pained me constantly. The
kidney secretions were also very un
natural. I was unable to rest well
and as the result arose in the morn
ing feeling nervous and languid.
My mother finally procured Doan's
Kidney Pills for me and since using
them, I am enjoying good health. I
give Doan's Kidney Pills the entire
credit for this great change."
