Savings representing the hard
labor of five years at a tailor's bench,
were stolen on Sunday night from
Frank Towell of Warren, who ac
cepted the invitation of a stranger
and shared a room with him at 124

Three years ago Erick Erickson
bought a home south of Cokato and
moved his family into it. Before the
purchase there had been a death from
tuberculosis in the house, and Erick
son bought a quantity of furniture
and bedding from the former owner,
the articles and home having not
been properly fumigated. One of
Erickson's children died last spring
and last week two more died, all hav
ing contracted the disease. The nine
surviving members of the family are
also said to be infected.
The body of Mrs. W. E. Sivwright,
a woman universally beloved and
prominent in all good work, was
found in the cistern underneath the
kitchen at her home in Hutchinson by
her daughter. Mr. Sivwright was at
tending court at Glencoe. Bruises on
the body suggest that she must have
opened the cistern, probably to
ascertain the amount of water it con
tained, and then stepped into it, the
bruises being received in the fall.
She was about 65 years old and an
aunt of former State Senator W. W.

Ruined Each Other
Two broken down paupers met in
the poorhouse yard, says the Cleve
land Plain Dealer. lb was evident to
each that the other had seen better
days each could see in the other's
face the sign that a noble and in
genious mind had succumbed to the
blows of an adverse fortune.
"Friend, what has reduced you to
this sad condition?" the first asked
"It is an old story," answered the
second wreck. I was an inventor.
And every time I invented a great
thing some heartless capitalist got all
the profits. And-here I am! But
what brought you here?"
"It is another old story. I was a
capitalist. And every time I invested
in some inventor's great idea it
turned out worthless. Shake, com
radewe have ruined each other!"

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO
Wheat marketNo. 1 hard, 65 cents
No. 1 northern, 62 cents: No.
northern, 57 cents.
Spread the news far and near
Princeton has the best wheat market
in this part of the state.
Aug. Rines had the honor of receiv
ing the first paid commercial dispatch
over the railroad telegraph line.
Levi Vinson of Princeton township
thinks he has slaughtered the boss
hog this season. It was not fat and
when dressed weighed 548 pounds.
Mrs. C. H. Rines and daughter,
Jean, were the first Princeton ladies
to make the round crip from Princeton
to St. Paul, which they did on Tues
day summer or winter. A farmer hauling
a load of wheat to town does not care
about having his load upset more
than half a dozen times in a distance
of three or four miles.
Amos Chadbourne, the depot
master, has been at his post since
Monday morning. Amos is a steady
young man, an expert telegraph
operator, understands his business
and will prove satisfactory to the
company and the citizens of Prince
The ball at the Palace rink passed
off very nicely. The music, by Sid
well's band, was all that could be de
sired, and although a few whiskey
bloats and beer tubs in Minneapolis
have boycotted Mr. Sidwell, his serv
ices will always be in demand on
Hon. C. H. Chadbourne, although a
resident of Sherburne county, mani
fests a paternal interest in everything
that pertains to Princeton. He can
be found at or about the elevator and
depot buildings most any time of day
suggesting and advising, and his ad
vice is always sound.
All aboard for Elk River, Anoka,
St. Paul and Minneapolis. Train
going south leaves Princeton at 7:30
a. m. every day except Sunday.
Train from the south due here at 6:30
p. m. every day except Sunday. You
can eat your breakfast in Princeton,
have five hours in St. Paul or six in
Minneapolis and return home in time
Horses Tnat Will Salt You
Last Monday my special represen
tative arrived here with a carload
of young native mares which are
strong, sound, and adapted to vari
ous kinds of work. They have been
selected with great care from among
hundreds by an expert horseman and
they will stand close inspection. On
the whole these mares cannot be ex
celled in this part of the country. Call
at my barn on Monday and judge for
yourselves. 47-tfc Aulger Rines.
The registered Hoi stein Friesian
bull, Pride Junior De Kol, is for ser
vice at my farm. This animal is one
of the best in the northwest.
