The supreme court so decided,
and we suppose nothing more
can be done, but to abide by the
decision. To say that the sen
tence is unjust is but to express
the opinion of thousands, yet we
are loath to believe that the
courts of this great nation, who
are the supreme rulers—the in
terpreters of all laws—would im
pose unjust decree upon helpless
individuals. The fact that every
attack on wealthy individuals or
corporations are successively
warded off by legal 'technicali
ty arouses suspicion among the
masses and ere long this sus
picion will grow into bitter ha
tred and disrespect for all courts.
This hatred is deeply rooted in
the hearts of many and is spread
ing with each decision that seeks
to protect moneyed interests.—

The High School Graduating
The graduating exercises of
the 1894 High School class of
Willmar was witnessed in the
court house hall with interest
and delight by a crowded house.
In fact hundreds of people were
turned away, and the aisles,
doorway, ante-rooms and side
rooms were crowded to suffoca
tion. There was an excellent
program aud it was rendered
well. The essays read by the
class were of a high order. All
of them, we may truly say,
fevinced profound insight into
the real philosophy of the great
problems of modern civilization
hardly to be expected from a
High School class. Some of the
orators might for the moment
be thought to excel others in
rhetorical ability, yet it would
lie hard for any critic, we believe,
taking the subject matter as well
as the delivery into considera
tion, to say who excelled of the
ten. Willmar may truly be
proud of her High School class
of 1895. We predict that some
of the members of the class that
circumstances shall favor in the
future will distinguish them
selves, and all reflect honor on
their alma mater. We hope
that none of these bright young
minds will allow their mental
machinery to.rust, but,'no mat
ter what their future occupation
may be, \vill continue to exercise
their minds in the higher regions
of philosophy* and literature.
What a glorious "future this
country would Have if such
minds could be spared
^Uragfehment of the
4th of July at Willmar.
As the time draws nearer to
the Fourt and the plans for our
mature and are
being put into execution
the fact becomes clearer and
clearer that it will be a great
and memorable day in the his
tory of our city. There are still
a few of our citizens that seem to
hold back, but we predict that
before a few days have passed
they will also become infected
with patriotism and place their
shoulders to the wheel. Every
business man in Willmar should
not only contribute his subscrip
tion and good will but also his
efforts. We may not all be
placed on important committees,
but we may all appoint ourselves
a committee of one to see that
our own share of the. days work
is done in style that' will reflect
credit on the city. Everyone
should try to excel in the decor
ation of their buildings and
floats. Everyone should have a
pleasant smile and hospitable
welcome for the thousands that
will throng our streets that day.
The secret of a successful celebra
tion is to please the visitors,
them at their ease, and en
tertain them as well as you
know how. Better have a few
things and have them come off
promptly than a great many
and have them occur irregularly.
There is nothing that irritates a
crowd more than long delays
and au uncertainty as to what
is to be done or where to go

Tbe following is an unsolicited
testimonial of the first Pony
Binder in use in the county last
There have been quite a num
ber from all parts of the county
inquiring about how the Deering
Pony Binder works. I will in a
few words state what—1 know
about it. Nearly at the close of
harvest last ear I took a Pony
out on trial and-used it some
over two days and it worked fine.
We tried it in very heavy edged
grain, but it dip* not clog once.
It is very easily handled, both
for driver and horses. One ordi
nary good team will handle it
nicely all day if the field is not
top hilly. I really think that' it
ttons just as easy in the grain as
the other Deering does, out of
tieer. For gathering and making
nWbundles of short grain I don't
think it can be beat.
To tell it short, the fact is that
a person can't help but being
