Secretary Fred Mason and the other

convention of the Retail Grocers' associ

they come home singing the praises of
that town and its wonderful hospitality.
"It was a great meeting,' says Mr. Ma
son, "and it will prove of inestimable
benefit to many local interests included
In our association. It has given a new
impetus to the grocers and merchants of
the state who attended. The convention
closed with a banquet tendered the 500
visiting delegates by the Nature's Break

ladies of Faribault waiting on the tables.
The entertainment provided during the
three days will always be remembered
by the visiting delegates.
"There was nothing too good for them.
The Faribault citizens demonstrated that
they can handle a convention right. There
was some talk that there was going to b«
a contest in the election of officers, but
the grocers, as they have always done,
elected their officers by acclamation."

Fire in Yard No. 3 of the Northwest
ern Fuel company, z.t fceventh and liarl
streets, destroyed about 150 cords of birch
and tamarack wood yesterday afternoon.
The blaze was discovered at 4:25 o'clock
in the afternoon hi the eastern end of
the wood yard, and a still alarm brought
out one engine and two hose companies.
The wood was situated close to the
railroad trestle used to run the cars
on for the purpose of unloading:, and at
one time it caught fire from the burning
wood. The flre was discovered shortly
after a switch engine had pulled some
empty cars off from the trestle, and It
is supposed to have been caused by
sparks from the locomotive. The fire de-
partment worked until about 10 o'clock
last night, and succeeded in saving aboi£
150 cords of wood that were endangered
by the blaze. The coal sheds were about
100 feet away, but at no time during the
conflagration were they in danger.
One of the officers of the fuel com
pany estimated that the loss would be
about $700, while the damage to the
trestle will amount to about $75.
