Thanksgiving
We are thankful to God for all the manifold blessings He
has bestowed upon us during the months and seasons passed,
as well as during all the days and years of our lives.
We are thankful for prosperity and plenty, as well as for
the chance to work hard for a living and do a small and humble
part in the struggle for better conditions in our home commun
ity, state and nation.
We are thankful for our friends and good neighbors, as
well as for all honest criticism and opposition, through which
we may learn our weaknesses and be able to improve and bet
ter ourselves.
We are thankful for being spared from dire calamity, but
pray that we may not in fancied security fall prey to ills which
might prove worse to us than either fire, war or pestilence.
For all good things, thanks!
For all healthy things, thanks!
For all material and bodily comfort which we enjoy, thanks!
For all blessings of this life, thanks!
For the hope of abetter life in a world to come, thanks!

C. C. SELYIG SecV.
Mourns Death of Sister.
George M. Winney received last
Saturday the sad news of the death
of a sister, Mrs. Nicholas Snoor,
wfcich occurred at her home in Jack
son, Mich. Mr. Winney departed the
same day for that place. The fa
Bifl TelepboK Property SM 9y
Sheritt Btt4e IMer Mert
gage F»reetanre.
The Minnesota Central Telephone
Company, once the pride of Western
Minnesota, is no more. At least it
has not the least bit of tangible pro
perty to its name. The last sad rites
occurred at the Kandiyohi county
courthouse last Friday morning,
when all the property was sold to
satisfy a trust deed held by the Min
nesota Loan & Trust Company of
Minneapolis, for about $172,000. The
property was bid in by the North
western Telephone Exchange Com-
pany for the sum of $600,000, the
difference being paid by securities
held against the Minnesota Central
by that company.
The act involving more than a half
million dollars was over in a minute.
Those present directly interested be
sides the sheriff were Atty. J. M.
Martin, representing the Trust com
pany, Mr. E. A. Prendergast, repre"
senting the Northwestern Telephone
Exchange Company, General Manag
er Baker and Secretary Williams Q.f
the Minnesota Central.
Sheriff Bonde started to read the
notice of sale, which was asked to
be dispensed with by unanimous con
sent. Mr. Martin bid the amount of
the mortgage on behalf of the Trust
company. Mr. Prendergast bid $600,
000 on behalf of the Northwestern
Telephone Exchange Co. The sheriff
asked if there were any other bids.
Mr. Prendergast with a smile looked
into the outside room, remarking,
"Where are the other fellows!" The
hammer fell and the telephone sys
tem reaching twenty-three counties
of Minnesota was sold. Mr. Pren
dergast handed to the sheriff over
$400,000 in notes given by the Min
nesota Central to the Northwestern
as payment for the difference between
the amount called for by the mort
gage and the amount of his bid. On
one of these alone more than $2,000
in interest wo? due.
Willmar was the headquarters for
the Minnesota Centrafln thTearl
days of building and promotion. Af
ter the Northwestern secured control
of its stock, the general office was
moved to Minneapolis in conjunction
with the Northwestern offices. For a
term of years past the management
of this system has been under the di
rection" of the Northwestern Bell
company. It has-been extending the
lines and improving the property as
the large construction account
shows. These facts were brought
out in a suit brought by the minor
ity stockholders to protect their in
terests, but which evidently did not
materialize for their benefit. Last
year the Minnesota Central did not
pay the interest on the trust deed
mortgage or bonds, the default of
which led to the proceedings of last
Friday.
Five Year's Record of Hospital.
The members of the staff with their
families and the nurses associated
with the Willmar Hospital celebrat
ed the fifth anniversary of that in
stitution by giving a banquet last
Friday evening. An interesting re
port was given of the work done dur
ing the five years, up to Nov. 15.
This report shows that in all 616
cases have been treated of which 414
were surgical 186 medicine, and 16
obstetrical. The number of Hospital
days were 7,641. Of the surgical
cases there were four deaths and of
the medicine cases, 6 deaths, or ten
in all. This shows a mortality of less
than one per cent of the surgical'
cases and less than two per cent of
all cases treated.
