BANK OF WARREN
State Bank of Warren Strengthens
Itself by Succeeding to
The Bank of Warren, the oldest
bank in Marshall County, establish
ed in 1884, was last Saturday trans
ferred to the State Bank of Warren,
the business and good will as well as
the handsome new bank building be
ing, acquired by the latter institu
tion. Mr. L. Lamberson. who has
been identified with the bank as its
cashier ever since it was organized,
and was the principal owner, has
drifted gradually into the real estate
business, and this business has
grown to such an extent, and de
manded so much of his time and at
tention that it was impossible for
him to do full justice to the banking
business. Mr. Lamberson owns or
controls 100 farms in this immediate
territory. Since the death of Hon.
B. G. Gill, who was associated with
Mr. Lamberson in the bank, Mr.
Lamberson has endeavored to secure
some satisfactory arrangement with
those in charge of his estate, for re
organizing the bank'and continuing
the business, and failure to make
such arrangement was also a factor
that prompted Mr. Lamberson's re
tirement from*the banking business.
His desire to be relieved of care and
responsibility, and get more time for
enjoyment of life also induced him
to take the step. Mr. Lamberson is
a very industrious man and among
the business men there is not a hard
er or more presistent worker than
he. From this view point also he
has earned respite from the arduous
labor he ha^heen engaged in for

A prairie fire near Shirly, north
of Crookston, burned the granary
on the farm of 4. F. Banta. to

The farm house was saved with
much difficulty. The school iiouse
in the district was also burned.
During this dry weather it behooves
all to be very careful about setting
fires. Carelessness in this regard
may cause tremendous loss of pro
perty as well as loss of human lives.

Marshal Startles Can-
The international boundary line in
the vicinity of Noyes continues to
furnish excitement and material for
news. Only last week. Emma Gold
man, the high priestess of anarchy,
was held up for a day by immigra
tion inspector at the boundry line
until she could show that she was a
citizen of the United States and was
then allowed to pass.
More startinlg news than this
reached us later in the week when it
was learned that Herbert Wright
was taken into custody by H. A.
Rider, deputy U. S. marshal, and
that at the point of a revolver.
According to the best information,
he was arrested on the charge of
assisting an undesirable
into the United States
person had been refused
by immigration officials
It appears that Margaret Pearson,
an alien who would be classed as an
undesirable citizen, attempted to
gain admission into the United
States but was turned back by the
immigration inspectors at Noyes.
She remained at Emerson for two or
three days and during that time in
duced Mr. Wright to pilot her
through so that on Tuesdav of last
week he smuggled her trunk through
the lines and took the woman her
self by team to Orleans, where she
embarked on the train and went to
Thief River Falls.
There she .became an inmate of
the red light district, and she was
later arrested^there.v She confessed,
implicating Wright, and was again
deDorted. The warrant for the
arrest of Wright was straightway
made out at Thief River Falls and
sent to Emerson to' the United
States officers there, II. A. Rider,
deputy United States marshal, went
through Crookston to Emerson
Wednesday and there on that
warrant arrested Wright at the point
of a gun. hand cuffing him and tak
ing him on the Great Northern to
Warren and from Warren to Thief
River Falls on the Soo where the
trial was had before L. G. Browning
United States commissioner.
The case was given a primary
hearing at Thief River Falls, where
P. H. Konzen. of Hallock. appeared
for the defendant. He was bound
over to the United States district
court under $1,000 bail. Mr. Wright
denies that he had anything to do
with the woman entering into the
United States and that he merely
went to Orleans on a business* trip
connected with the customs service
at Emerson. Friends and acquain
tances of Mr. Wright on both sides
of the Hue are verv much interested
in the outcome of the case.
BUTTER MAKER GIVES PAT-

Lars Leffler. butter-maker at the
Hendrum creamery, gives the pat
rons of that institution some per
tinent suggestions in the Hendrum
Review. Among other things Mr.
Lefflej: savs: "Faimerr, bring in the
cream as fresh as possible this

cents a pound difference on the
entire output if you do. In order
to get the highest price on the New
York market the butter must score
92 or better. In scoring, the flavor
counts 45 per cent, and the flavor is
almost entirlv dependent on the con
dition of the cream when brought
in. One can of sour cream will
spoil a whole churning, in fact the
flavor is dependent to the poorest
cream rather than the best. The
state laws governing creameries are
much stricter than ever before and
makes it necessary for the butter
maker to refuse any cream that is
