Grandmother Burned to Death and Bro
ther of Bride Fatally Injured
at Sacred Heart.
Mr. and Mrs. Bernt Haagenson had
planned a family reunion when their
daughter Bella, was to be united in
marriage to Ernst Schafer of Olivia,
A large number of guests had been in
vited and several had already .arrived.
Among the relatives on their way to
this event was the son, Albert Haagen
son, who is employed in Jinneapolis.
Suddenly awakened the brake
man's voice, he started towards the door
of the coach and leaped off while the
train was moving, and was so injured
in his fall that he died. He was uncon
scious to the end.
It had been hoped that his injuries
would not prove fatal and preparations
for the wedding were continued.
Early yesterday morning fire broke
out in the Haagenson home with such
suddenness that the bride-to-be and
guests barely escaped with their lives.
The fire is believed to have started
from a defective chimney over the kitch
en. The whole side of the house was
aflame before the occupants were aware
of their danger.
Young people returning from a dance
gave the alarm.
While the occupants were rescued
their personal effects and the wedding
trosseau were consumed by the fire.
Mrs. Sweiven, who was an invalid,
had been unable to reach her window
over a porch from which rescue would
have been easy.—Special to Minneap

Women's Missionary Society.
The Women's Missionary Society of
the Presbyterian church held a very in
teresting meeting at the home of Mrs.
P. C. Peterson last Thursday. The top
ic for the month was Cuba and Porto
Rico. After the devotional exercises the
leader for the day, Mrs. E. M. Stanford,
gave a brief description of Porto Rico,
its geographical position, political stat
us and natural products. Also the great
work of this government in promoting
the health of the people through sanitary
measures. ThiS was followed by Mrs.
A. Foster, telling of the every day
life of the islanders, their peculiarities,
superstitions and Quaint manner of liv
ing. Mrs. J. H. Martin told what the
Presbyterian church has done and is
doing along the line of missions, the
splendid work accomplished by the San
Juan hospital, not only in relieving bod
ily suffering, but introducing the Gospel
to all patients that come to their door
and by which many are led to accept
Christ. A very interesting review of
Cuba since the close of the Spanish war
was given by Mrs. Wm. Hengstler the
trials of the Cuban people during the
transitory period, politically, socially
and religiously, and the great need of
more missionaries on this island was

thing for the progressives—the real pro

it in creating, for the generation to come

Many people throughout the farming
districts are having wells and cisterns
dug or a well drilled with a view of
having it where the surroundings will
be the most sanitary. The other three
fourths will pay no attention whatever
to this, but Will consider convenience
only. The so-called malaria, typhoid
and many cases that are called bilious
attacks or summer diarrhea and dys-n
entary are very often due to contamin
ated drinking water.
So many wells and cisterns, from
which the drinking water and water us
ed for cooking purposes is taken, are
often located in a back porch or room,
or within a few feet of the kitchen door,
or possibly within 10 or 20 feet of out
houses, such as pig styes, stables and
privy vaults. When sickness prevails
in families who get their water supply
from cisterns or wells thus situated,
they are at a loss to understand it.
Last summer I visited a family in
the country where sickness seemed to
be always present, and on looking up
their water supply was very much sur
prised to find that it was obtained from
a cistern located about 20 feet back of
the kitchen door. The well had a good
curbing around it alright, but the ground
for 6 or 8 feet away from the curbing
sloped toward the well. This was due
to the pump being defective, allowing
the water to waste and form puddles,
in which a dozen or so of ducks were
having the time of their lives. Now
mind you, whenever a rain came or
whenever one of the children got at the
pump and overflowed these puddles, the
water drained right back into the well.
It is needless to say that the head of
the family was given a good lecture,
and advised at once to fill up the pud
dles, clean out the cistern and keep the
ducks out of the back yard.
Some time ago I was visiting an oldan
acquaintance in the country and while
snooping around the barn-lot and barn,
to see, of course if everything was san
itary, found a well, on one side of which
was a large manure-pile, which from all
appearances had been added to year by
year. On the other side a much dead
lier source of poison, a pig-pen was lo
cated. The thought occurred to me that
this well had been designed either for
murder or suicide. My friend being
asked what inspired him to select that
particular spot for a well, replied that
it was handy. He listened doubtfully to
a tirade of criticism of his well, but

Well Driller Injured.
Chas. Stevens, the-well driller, met
with an accident yesterday morning. In
company with Pete Jacobson, he is put
ting in a well at the Swenson & Bro
berg farm near the depot. The well had
been dug down about twenty feet, and
the pipe for the well was sticking up
to within a few feet from the top of
the ground. The board over the well,
on which Stevens was standing, broke,
and down he went, striking his face on
the end of the pipe, which made a sev

If the water is very cold and clear,
it is often taken as a proof of purity.
It is cold and pleasant to drink, but this
is no evidence that Impurities are not
oozing into it from various sources. A
spring is commonly believed to. be un
questionably pure and always to be pre
ferred to a well. Most springs are the
very fact that they gush out of the
earth indicate purity and means that
impurities from near by have difficulty
forcing themselves into the body of
subterranean water, from which the
spring takes its source. However, more
than one charming little spring has
been traced to a source never built by
nature. An overburdened cesspool will
sometimes be the cause of an innocent
gurgling little spring, perhaps quite a
distance from its parent.
The well that supplies the best and
purest water is bored or drilled well.
The well should be on an elevation and
deep enough to pass through one or
more strata of rock. Such a well is
Water from a cistern is seldom, if

expelled from the garden. The record
is (Gen. 3:22) that if man could have
had access to those foods he would have
been able to 'put forth his hand and
eat and live forever." In disfavor with
God it has been a blessing that man
could not do this, for he was created

"Fear not, O land, be glad and rejoice,
for the Lord will do great things. Be
not afraid, ye beasts of the field, for the
pastures of the wilderness do spring, for
the tree beareth her fruit, the fig-tree
and the vine do yield their strength."
They also remind us of the great Mes
sianic prophesy of Isa. 35, "The desert
shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.
The glory of (the forests of) Lebanon
shall be given unto it, the excellency of
(the fruitful hillsides of) Carmel and
(of the vale of) Sharon. Say to them
that are of a fearful heart (those losing
faith in God and thus losing all hope in
life) be strong, fear not. Behold your
God will come and save you (out of
your troubles, even including poverty
and death). Then the eyes of the blind
shall be opened and the ears of the deaf
shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame
man leap as an hare and the tongue of
the dumb sing."

pension, and he will hereafter receive a
pension of $12 per month. This pay
ment was made in accordance with an
act of congress of 1905, allowing all the
early settlers who were here during the
Indian outbreak, a pension. Mr. Spauld
ing settled on Maine Prairie in 1860, and
resided there continually until ten years
ago, when he moved to Kimball, where
he has resided ever since. He was post
master at Maine Prairie for a number
of years. He has some interesting stor

vicinity, when they lived in daily fear
of their lives from an attack by the In

The Chicago Stock Show.
Mr. W. R. Goodwin, managing editor
of the Breeders' Gazette, Chicago, in
speaking of the International Live Stock
Exposition, which will this year be held
from Nov. 30th to Dec. 7th, said:
"I have seen more of the great stock
shows and fairs in America in the past
thirty years than any other man,- andfield,
I ought to be somewhat case-hardened
but the "International" annually -fills
me with awe. I approach each exhibi
tion of the consummate triumph of the
breeder's art with a fairly reverent
mind. A man may become indifferent
to the roar of Niagara, bui I do notusing
see how any man can fail to find new
instruction and inspiration in each of
these shows. If I were wholly a stock
farmer, as I am partly, I would sacri
fice much rather than miss an annual
trip to the "International." The pro
fessional bre«._-i- may about as well
take down his signs as omit this show
from his year's programme, and thean's
stock farmer can gather almost as much
of value from a study of its lessons.
We must have meat to eat. The jaw of
the civilized world rises and falls in
the mastication of meat. The farmer
of America—chiefly the farmer of the
corn belt—must make his meat He
can learn more about its production at
this great exposition than at any farm
er's institute or special stock train that
ever offered information. The stock
farmer who works his brain as well as
his body can make no more profitable
investment than a study of the exhib
its of the "International"—the* cattle,
sheep and swine. The. farmers
of no other nation have such opportun
ities. There is only one "International"
on the globe. American stock farmers
have built it. Their fellows should ap
preciate its lessons and learn them."
