The ball given by the Oakdale club at
Armory hall last evening was like all the
previous i ft tirs of the club a decided
success. About 60 couple from the three
cities were present, and to the enlivening
music of Bleuer's orches ra they indulged
in the merry dance until a late hour.
About 12 o'clock supper was served at
Davidson's restaurant, after which the
dance was continued. The crowd was a
very sociable one, and all spent a pleas
ant evening. The following were present-

When seen yesterday concerning Gen.
Gilchrist's proposed loiklcss Hennepin
canal scheme, Capt. L. L. Wheeler, the
government engineer wh) establisbtd the
survey for the location of the canal to the
mouth of K ick river, stated that in his.
opinion Gen. Gilchrist's scheme was im
practicable. TnE Aro:s has witheld
judgment on Gn. Gilchiist's proposition,
but it has never had any seriou3 idea that
the government would, after properly lo
cating the route of the canal, change it.
The Argus has always teld to the policy
of letlicg well enough alsne in securing
improvements from the government, and
even were Gen. Gilchrist s plan entirely
feasible, would not be far suffering the
delay in actual construct on that the put
ting of it into operation would necessi
tate. In a word the only ones who
mjent hope for particul r benefit from a
change of route woul 1 be those not

Do you know what they contain? Have
you any idea whira they are made or who
These are questions that might well be
asked of any pewon who has desire to
patronize the white aproned individuals
who carry them about the streets at night.
Pursuing the constant aim of The Arocs,
which has always been to insure as far as
possible that which is most essential to
human existence wholesome food the
same principle which actuated its firm
stand for proper meat inspection a few
years ago, a reporter was delegated to
look into the hot tomalley industry which
has caused somewhat of a craze in Reck
Islaad of late. In company with a friend
the scribe proceeded to an old stone
building up town, on the top
floor of which the industry is carried on.
The two were admitted to the ranshackle
hallway by a woman who promptly
replied to a question from the reporter
that they did not allow any one to see
the preparation of the tomalley s. It may
be well to mention here that Mexican to
malleys when properly prepared are com
posed of chicken and veal, which is high
ly seasoned, and is then rolled and boiled
in a corn husk, and on the southern bord
ers are considered quite a luxury.
After some parleying the women con
sented to allow the visitor to take a look
at the tomalleys after they were made.and
accordingly led the way through a smoky,
dirty hallway into the front room where
the processing; is done. A flickering
light revealed a scene that was revolting
in the extreme. Seated about the room
were two or three men or boys, it was
hard to distinguish which, while the gen
eral condition of the room showed that
very little at ention was paid t the man
ner in which the tomalleys were
prepared. The table upon whhh
the latter were laid after they
were prepared was a sight, strewn ,
with dirty dishes and presided over by a
little grimy faced urchin whoboked to
be half inclined to use the table for a bed
The odor that cminated from the room
was cot exhilarating and the visitors
were exceedingly glad to regain the open
air. The people who run the place de
scribed, are strangers in the city, having
come here from Indianapolis a short time
ago, and the above description of at least
one of the homes of the tomalley ia this
city will no doubt haye a highly relishing
effect upon the appetites of the lovers of
the late novelty in the way of food.

The dark angel of death has again in
vaded the home of Hon. E. W. Hurst,
this time calling away his father, the vens
erable William Hurst, whose death occur
red at 9:40 o'clock last evening. His
death was preceded only a few weeks by
that of Lis wife, which occuir?d scarcely
a month ago. Mr. Hurst was born at
Milford, Del., Nov 9, 1S07, and was con
sequently 85 years of age. He was one
of the pioneer settlers of this scc.ion.hav
ing come west and settled here in 1S3T,
where he has resiaed continuously since.
Three children survive the venerable
couple: Hon. E W. Hurst, Mrs. M. T.
Stafford and Miss Mary F. Hurst. Mr.
Hurst had been ill for some weeks past,
but last week he rallied to such an extent
that his son. Hon. E W. Hurst, felt safe
in leaving him for a few days, and accord
ingly left on Wednesday for Dakota on
some business. He has been notified fend
will probably arrive home this evening.
The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock
Monday afternoon from the residence.

Milau is just recovering from some
thing of a sensation which f r soms rea
son has been kept pretty much a secret.
About four weeks ago Mra. Kitherine
Heverling, wife of F. H. Heverling. died
"to all intents and purposes" and she was
duly laid out and preparation made for
her funeral. Using to the somewhat
stinted meacs of the family charitably
disposed people were being asked to con
tribute toward the defraying of the
funeral expenses. In the meantime
Mrs. Heveling gave evidences of return
ing vitality and in less than an hour she
had regained consciousness and the
money that had been collected was re
turned to the cheerful givers, and tele
grams were Bent out contradicting the
ones just previously sent concerning the
lady's death. She is now able to sit up,
and gives every evidence of ultimate re -ocvery.
