Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lull celebrat
ed the 25th anniversary of their mar
riage, on Nov. 30, Thanksgiving Day,
in giving their silver wedding, which
was a grand success with noexceptions.
Early in the day, old neighbors
and friends gathered at their home.
An elegant dinner was served at 1:30
in the grand old Puritan style, pump
Inn pie, roasted turkey and many
other delicacies that could be gathered
from our bountiful harvest. During
the afternoon the people received a
very fine treat of music from McCrea
Band, which was highly appreciated
by all present, and it must be said
that the boys did justice to them
selves, for, as short a practice as the
McCrea Band has had, they fully de
serve their talent, and is one that
McCrea may well be proud of.
An oyster supper was served at
6.30, after which the older people re
turned to their homes. But the place
was filled by younger ones. The eve
ning was spent with music and danc
ing, which lasted till a late hour in
the morning. A very pleasant and
enjoyable time was had by everyone
present, and they returned home with
kind words and best wishes to those
whose silver wedding they had

The fall term at the Normal School
closed Wednesday, the 29th of No
vember, and most of the students
went home to spend the vacation with
relatives and friends. Those, how
ever, who, like your correspondent,
were unable to go home, have speut
the vacation in miscellaneous work.
Under such circumstances, home, or
the place that is next best, is general
iy a favorite resort for memory and
imagination. My home is at Warren,
and I would not permanently ex
change abiding places with any one
The people in Warren and Marshall
county, as a whole, are prosperous
and always hospitable.
Undoubtedly, the great topics of
interest are well known to the readers
of the newsy "SHEAF," but perhaps
your readers will indulge with a few
remarks on current topics.
The attendance at the Normal
School this year is far greater than at
any previous time in its history. It
is growing and developing as no other
school of its kind in Minnesota. The
graduating class numbers seventy
three this year. The unquestionably
great ability of Mr. Lord as the ad
ministrator of the school during the
past eleven years, is constantly being
demonstrated by its ever increasing
reputation and the influence of his
labors will be felt for years to come.
No other Normal School of the state
-has been able to successfully place so
nany of its graduates. Three-fourths
of all the graduates last year had
cured positions before the school
dosed, and before the beginning of
the present school year, all had been
Pres. Weld is a worthy successor to
Mr. Lord. He is a man of fine cul
ture, wide knowledge of literature
and, moreover, a man of strong exec
utive ability. He is also widely
known among educators of this and
other states. It is a fact that in no
state school, or in any other, is there
a more harmonious feeling. All are
unitedly at work for the realization of
but one main purposethe upbuild
ing of the State Normal School at
Marshall county is represented at
this institution, but not to the extent
to which it ought to be repiesented.
There are twenty students from Still
water, where Mr. Weld held the posi
tion of Superintendent of the City
Schools, while only the following ones
are from Marshall county: Missea
Hilda Samuelson, Alma Barneko and
Anna Ahlberg Messrs. Mithun and
Leonard Erickson. Miss Ahlberg
and Leonard Erickson belong to the
During the last two or three months
there have been chiefly four topics of
discussion among newspaper writers.
These have been: The Philippine
War, Foot-Ball, The South African
War, and "The Grindeland Law," ap
it is generally called. Among these
four topics, the last mentioned one
has had its full share of attention.
No single enactment or whole legisla
ture in the history of Minnesota, save
the statute upon which Hon. H.
Steenerson based the arguments of
his famous case, has ever created so
much agitation and discussion among
business men and lawyers as this one
bill, which, through the ceaseless
and able efforts of Hon. A. Grinde
land, was made a law by the last
legislature. No legislative enact
ment has ever been more radical in
its defense of the farmer and the pro
ducer than this law, nor has there been
any measure of late years that has
been more fiercely and violently at
tacked and assailed by men, either
ignorant or of questionable character
than this statute. Unable to meet
the pointed arguments of our senator,
the enemies of this measure under
took to wilfully violate the new law
that its validity might be determined
before the highest tribunal in our
state. Judge Lockren emphatic
ally declared that the law was
in no way interfering with
the interstate commerce law.
Baffled, but not hopeless, the enemies
of the "Grindeland Law" attempted
to induce the Railroad and Ware-
TTouse Commission not to enforce the
law. To what extent they are suc
cessful the future will reveal. There
are many commission men, however,
who have long ere this complied with
all the requirements of the lawpre
sumably those who have always trans
acted their affairs in an honest and
legitimate way, and evidently those
who are working to have the Jaw re
pealed, are the men who have delud
ed so many farmers of remunerations
honestly earned "by the sweat of
their brow." Too 'long have the
farmers been at the mercy of the
class where dishonesty has altogether
too often been hid beneath the cloak
of an honest man. And every pro
ducer and all their sympathizing
friends should rejoice that the out
rageous practices must now be com
mitted in such a manner as to enable
the offended party to reach the
offender. Mr. Grindeland's success
in his first year as senator is bevond
all doubt the greatest achieved by
any one in recent years. And every
farmer in Marshall, Kittson and Ro
seau counties ought to feel proud for
being thus ably represented.
Immediately before Thanksgiving,
there was an evangelist in Moorhead
Wm A Sunday, of Chicagothe
most remarkable man that I ever
saw or heard Possessed of the
oreatest degree of earnestness as well
as a deep flow of wit and humor, a
most extraordinary command of
language and a highly pleasing voice,
he did not fail to" attract large
audiences and also convict manv of
sm It was stated at his last meeting
that 12-4 had been converted and
were professing a Christian faith as a
result of his preaching He was as
sisted by Prof Oliver, who conducted
the song services at each meeting.
Services were conducted each after
noon and evening during four weeks.
On Sundays, three different services
were held, in the forenoon, afternoon
and evening. Mr Sunday preached
in the forenoon to men only, while
Mr Oliver spoke to the ladies
Never before have I seen a man so
completely filled with his subiect, so
thoroughly a master of the English
language, or a man of greater con
centration power over other men.
He is a man of a mostexcellent mind
His thoughts come faster than his
tongue can speak them, and when
ever he spoke the deepest attention
prevailed His sermons on "Danc
ing and Card Playing" and "What
is the Unpardonable Sin?" were the
most remarkable ever listened to

get an opportunity to hear this won

him or her to go and listen to him, if
for no other reason than to see the
man and learn to what extent hu
man brains can be developed.
The weather this fall has been the
most unusual in years and the tem
perature of November has been 10
warmer than anv previously regis
tered in Minnesota November 30th
the ground has usually been frozen
quite deep, but this year plowing
could have been done very well
The Normal School has had a foot
ball team in the field this year, and
it has four defeats, one tie and seven
to its credit The last game,
on Thanksgiving Day, was the great
est of the season, when the Agricul
tural College of North Dakota and
our school met on the gridiron in
Fargo to decide the championship of
Fargo and Moorhead, and which
team should hold first place after the
University of North Dakota, in the
race for the pennant of the North
Dakota Intercollegiate League.
Moorhead Normal won, and the stu
dents of the school and the citizens
of Moorhead have been fairly in
toxicated with joy ever since The
undersigned has had the honor to be
the manager and captain ofthe team,
and, in addition, is the president of
the Athletic Association ofthe school.
I have now taken too much time
and space and will therefore conclude
with saying that in the next letter
there will be a few sprays from a visit

We are now making loans on good farms at the very
lowest rates, and can make you a loan that you can pay
a part each year when the interest is dueif you wish to do bo.
Why take a loan for five years when you may not be
able to pay it when it is due?
Try our plan of making the loan so that you can pay
it in small payments if you wish.
We do not charge you a big bonus for this privilege
and when you make a payment it stops that much interest.
Before getting a loan elsewhere come in and talk over
the matter with us.
We can make you a straight five year loan if you wish
it, on the usual plan, and at the lowest rates.
