At the,special city election hold
last Monday for the purpose of vot
ing,on the adoption of the ne\v city
charter, the proposition failed to
receive the necessary four-sevenths
majority to carry. There were 2(H
votes altogether cast on the propo
sition, and of these 146 votes were
in favor of the new charter and 118
against. Tn order to carry.
1T votes would have been neees
ary hence the new charter was de
feated by ihe narrow margin of 5
All the work of preparing the
charter, therefore, is just that much
wasted effort. Many unfortunate
circumstances combined to defeat
the measure. One was that the
printed copy appeared so late that
few voters had the time to give it
careful study before the election.
Could the instrument have been
more thoroughly discussed and ex
plained before election, the result
might have been different. One
thing that was strongly objected to
by many was the time for holding
Ihe elections, namely in June.
It is possible that the charter
commission may come together
again and change and amend the
charter in those particulars that
Mere most strongly objected to and
submit it to a vole of the people
once more. It will be well, in case
that be done, for those who have)
printed copies of the proposed char
1 er, to preserve them and save the
expense of printing the whole char
1er over again, as the amended sec
tions by themselves can be submit
ted in printed form.

A MILKING MACHINE
Mi Holland, of Otter Tail, Has One
In Successful Operation
Henning Advocate: A short time
ago in company with a number of
Henning citizens the writer had the
privilege of seeing the milking ma
chine at Henry Bolland's Sr., big
farm in Leaf Lake in operation.
The machine imitates the process
of a sucking tLalf as nearly as pos
sible, that is by suction and com
pression. Each teat enters a small
metal box in which is a fixed rubber
plate lying along one side1
of the box
while a movable rubber sheet is
driven forward by two pistons, "ly-
ing one above the other, so that the
pressure is made first by the top
and the suction by the bottom. A
rubber bag takes the milk and it
flows from here into covered milk
cans. The machine, or rather the
air supplying the pressure, and suc
tion is driven by a gasoline engine,
located in another part.of the barn.
The air pipes are lead along the
ceiling above the stalls. At each stall
is a fitting upon which the rubber
tubes leading to Ihe milker is plac-[ i
ed. Although Mr. Bolland's "ma-
chine is of four units only two are
utilized for milking his dairy herd
of eighteen cows which give milk at
present. One unit milks four teats
at a time. John Bolland, one of the
sons, attends to the milking of eigh
teen cows and the separating- Thi?
part of the work he completes un
aided in about 45 minutes. |)Mainly
his work lies in carrying the filled
cans frpm the stalls to the separa
tor. The animals db not'seem to
object to the machine and keep
quiet during the operation.
Mr. Bolland has one of the finest
farms in the county, it being sup
plied with all modern conveniences,
new large barn, buildings/ silo, etc.
