GREAT NORTHERN WRECK.
Two Others
Seriously Injured and
Cut and Bruised.
Pipestone. Minn., Nov. 8 —A'bai
wreck occurred on the Great Northern
about two miles south of this city last
evening. Two coaches and a baggage
car went into the ditch. The wreck is
supposed to have been caused by the
spreading of tha rails. The train ran
almost twice its length on the ties be
fore going over. Both coaches were
well filled.
Mrs. W H. Folich of Hull was
seriously bruised and lacerated J. B.
Bacon, traveling freight agent for the
Great Northern, was badly shaken up
and sustained several injuries. Other
passengers were slightly cut and
bruised, hub none seriously. The in
jured were at once brought here and
are being oared for in the best possi
ble manner.
Pipestone, Mian., Nov. 10.—Dr. John
Wright, the well known Episcopal
rector and biblical scholar of St. Paul,
who was seriously injured last Wednes
day in a railroad wreck near this
town, was able to leave his bed to-day.
He will probably recover, unless his
internal injuries prove more severe
than they are supposed to be. He
sustained a concussion of the brain and
remained unconscious nearly twenty
four hours.
His cheek was bruised beneath the
left eye. *Hi9 lower lip was deeply cut.
He still complains of pains in his
chest and across his back. He is now
under the care of Dr. Louis M. Benepe
of St Paul, who arrived here this
eyening. The doctor and his patient
will leave Monday in a special car
over the Great Northern railway.
When they reach St Paul Dr. Wright
will be taken to St. Luke's hospital.
The coach in which Dr. Wright was
riding was thrown bottom side up.
The occupants were buried together at
the forward end amid bags, bundles,
broken glass and loose car seats. Dr.
Wright, who was brought here with
the other injured passengers, was taken
to the Calumet hotel. There he has
received every attention from local
surgeons.
At the Calumet also is another of
the injured men, Jens Johnson, of 2424
Ninth street south, Minneapolis. He
is a traveling passenger agen^ in the
employ of the Great Northern company.
His right foot was bruised and his
system was severely shocked. His
injuries, however, are less serious
than those of Dr. Wright Mr. John
son is still confined to his bed, but
he expects to start for Minneapolis
Monday.
Aceidental Shooting.
The farm of Olof Strandberg, in the
town of Lake Lillian, was the scene of
an accidental shooting, on Thursday,
the 1st inst., which resulted in the
death of a young man named Suzen.
The particulars of the affair, as near
as can be learned, are as follows:
The unfortunate young man had
gone out on a hunting trip in company
with a relative, with whom he was
stopping. While at Fox Lake, which
lies a short distance from the Strand
berg home, one of the men decided to
go out in a boat, while Suzen remained
on ..shore. The object was to secure
good positions for shooting the game
which was very plentiful at that point.
A the rushes were high they were un
Sibje tp see each other, and in course
jLad got quite a distance apart.
It was late in the afternoon when the

INJURED BY FALLING WALL,.
In-
Marlus Johnson Roeoives Severe
Juries at Old Round House.
Last Friday, shortly before the noon
hour, an accident befell one of the
workmen who are engaged in tearing
down the old round house. A por
tion of a wall gave way and struck
Marius Johnson, burying him be
neath the debris. He was picked up
in an unconscious condition and Dr.
Frost was summoned. Upon his ar
rival the injured man had recovered
so as to be able to stand without as
sistance. A livery team was sent for
and he was taken with all possible
haste to his home on south First
street. An examination of his injur
ies was made and it was found that
he was hurt internally besides receiv
ing bruises on different parts of the
body.
The patient is receiving the best of
treatment from the railway com
pany 's physician, Dr. MacLaughlin,
although his injuries are of such a
nature that he will be laid up for some
time. Johnson is a newcomer, hav
ing come here from Norway but a
short time ago. He has a wife and is
in poor circumstances.
Atwater.
The Catholic fair advertised to take
place here Saturday was held at Kan
diyohi instead. A very large crowd
was present and the affair was a com
plete success In the contest between
Miss Nora O'Brien and Miss Mayme
Downs for a gold watch, the latter
won. The sum of $525 was taken in,
and will be used towards the erection
of a dwelling house for the priest at
Willmar We are advised bv the
health officer that the cases of small
pox mentioned in last week's issue
are just about well, and the quaran
tine will soon be removed. The cases
were of an extremely mild form. No
new cases have developed in the vil
lage and the health officer says that
he does not think there will be any
more cases. The schools will be
opened Monday, and the church ser
vices and all other public gatherings
will be resumed at once.—Atwater Re
publican Press.
A Pleasant Surprise.
Olof Berkness and wife were the
victims of a most pleasant surprise
last Thursday evening. It was the
fifteenth anniversary of their marriage
and a number of their Iriends had
arranged to make the date a memor
able one by an invasion of their home
on that evening. The party included
nearly fifty of our citizens and they
came laden with eatables and all the
necessaries for a good time. Before
departing they paid their respects to
Mr. and Mrs. Berkness in a most sub
stantial way. They were remembered
with a beautifully decorated glass
wine set and a set of silver knives
and forks.
Change in Business Firm.
Among the recent business changes
in the city is that of Hal orson &
Neuberger, the new hardware and
house-furnishing firm. Mr. Halvorson
has purchased the interest of Mr. Neu
berger and will conduct the business
alone. The retiring member of the
firm, we understand, will remain in
Willmar in the tinsmith business. The
establishment has a business that is
rapidly growing, having made liberal
use of printer's ink in judicious ad
vertising. The TRIBUNE wishes both
of these popular gentlemen the same
well-merited success in their respective
vocations that has attended them in
the past.
Belgrade Wedding.
Last Sunday morning at 10:30o'clock
occurred the marriage of Miss Ethel
Smith of this village, to Mr. Frank
Hoskin of Aberdeen, S. D. The cere
mony was performed by Rev. Sund at
Hotel Belgrade, and was witnessed
only by near relatives and members of
the family. The groom is a popular
and successful traveling salesman and
is worthy of the excellent bride he has
won. The bride is one of Belgrade's
most charming young ladies, and is
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Smith" of
Hotel Belgrade.—Belgrade Tribune.
Another Enemy off the, Box Elder,
Prof. Lugger, of the state experi
ment school, says that thered bugs
which have been so plentiful the past
two weeks, are "box elder bugs, which
live on the under side of the leavesvof
that tree, sucking the sap. When cold
weather comes they seek winter quar
ters under wooden sidewalks, in out
houses, rubbish piles, etc. Their
prejencAxeM after year destroys the
trees, and they should be killed when
ever possible.—Benson'Times.

Nov. 10.—Election is over and a
surprise it was to many, whether they
were republicans or democrats. We
pops, of course will have to admit that
we have been beaten at the polls. That
does not mean, however, that we are
entirely subdued. If the principles for
which we fought are just, which we
still believe just as firmly as.ever, we
have no reasons to feel down-hearted.
The republicans have full sway this
time so they will have no one but
themselves to blame for that which
shall happen in the next four years.
We hope that they will fulfill the
promises they have made in the last
campaign, but we have our doubts.
Let us wait and see, and let us all as
true citizens keep close track of what
our officials, county, state and nation
al, may do, so that we shall be able
to cast our votes intelligently two
years from now The pupils of
Dirt. No. 64 showed their loyalty and
patriotism to their country by having
an election last Wednesday morning.
The results of the election were as
follows: McKinley 6, Bryan 12 Van
Sant6, Lind 7. In tha county all the
people's candidates were elected, ex
cept one county commissioner. As
there was an educational qualification
for suffrage, the first grade was de
barred from voting. The young patri
ots took hold of it with a good deal of
enthusiasm. The second month of
school closed to-day, with an enroll
ment of 33 Johnny Johnson has
been working for Mr. L. J. Peterson
the last few days....Mrs. Ole Lind
quist visited Lake Lillian friends and
relatives last, week Rev. Lundberg
who has returned from a trip to
Canada, preached last Sunday fore
noon in the Christine church We
have been wondering what the popu
lation of /our county seat is at the
present time. We see in the papers
the return* from the big cities down
east, but we see nothing about things
near home. Probably some one can
tell us?—Mr. Ole Engwall came home
last Saturday from northern Minne
sota, where he has been looking for a
suitable place to settle down... A rela
tive of tfcas. Ostman arrived from
Sweden last Wednesday A few

Whitefield. The event takes place
Thursday of this week at 10:30 a. m.

Lundberg will officiate. Invitations
for the wedding reception have been
issued for the married people on the

able event. A number of Willmar
people are planning to attend. The
groom is a resident of Kerkhoven,
where he is engaged in the harness
making business. The estimable
couple will make their home at that
place.
Bakery and Candy Faotory.

will hold 400 loaves of bread at one
baking. It is an S. L. Jones patent
oven, manufactured in Chicago. A
patent,,cooky machine will be put in
soon.
