TSE FLOUR CITY WAR Eustis and the Committee of lOO S|till Look Fierce and Call Each Other Names. A .Straw Vote in the Ninth Ward Shows Clough's Popularity With the Laborers. If? ~4% S-te Special Correspondence to the UNION MINNEAPOLIS, April 28, 1896.Hon. Timothy Byrnes is going to seat 15,601 delegates and visitors in the St. Louis convention and is going to have telephonic communication between each delegation and the chairman. $- Mrs Lora Perkins, the fair blonde of recent court fame, is not certain re garding her birth, marriage, parent age and such like, but she is positive thatshe wants the insurance money on Mrs, Hawkins. S The Eustis organ, the Times, de scribes Captain Van Sant as a common place and inferior personage ^and the "100" describe Eustis as a man without political strength or support. Both sides predict that the other is not in it so far as carrying Hennepin county, and both probably speak the truth. The Minneapolis ball aggregation has been without scores in its recent tour about the country, but plenty are laid up against it here at home. Hennepin county Republicans are now figuring whether they will let a pool made up of outsiders come in here and run the primaries "for them next summer. That seems to be the Eustis idea, that the people of this county should not be allowed to run their own primaries and select their own dele gates. He has brought Lee from Long Prairie and Van Sant from Winona and formed a combination to prevent Hennepin county from voting for Governor Clough, the Hennepin county candidate. This,shows how Eustis es timates his own strength with the peo ple of Minneapolis. 1: Bicyclers have so overrun the town, that the^ceuncil has been compelled to paas^dti&n demand the police depart* ment has had to get out with guns and clubs to make life safe on Nicollet avenue. The Gold and Silver club is multi plying rapidly, and numbers several thousand at this writing. They are hustling and will make things merry for gold bugs and straddlers this fall. It is a problem down here why Win. E. Lee entered into the pool to carry Hennepin county primaries. He won't get anything here. Nobody knows him, except the "100" and a few other politicians who are in the deal, and they won't give him any support. Eustis will look out for Eustis, and the 100 will look out for Van Sant. All Lee will get here is the suspicion and dislike of those who are not fond of political pools and of interlopers coming in from the outside to run Hennepin county primaries. If General Clapp had been added to the combination, it might stand some show of accomplishing something, if any pool can control the votes of the people. Clapp is known, he has car ried the district three times, he has stumped here, and his three terms at the capitol have made him known favorably to a majority of the reading and voting public. But Clapp, who is undoubtedly stronger than any other candidate _than Clough in Hennepin county, was not invited. A straw vote has been reported from the Ninth ward, giving 354 votes to Clough, 52 for Eustis, and 80 odd scattering for the other candidates. This is the labor ward of the East side. It appears that the tin-pail brigade is not particularly in love with the "100" or the late combine. So it looks to YOUR UNCLE JASON. ODDFELLOWSHIP. The Order Has Been Prominent Before the People this Week. This has been Oddfellows' week. The celebration of the seventy-seventh anniversary of the founding of the or der was celebrated first at the Con gregational church last Sunday, when the members of Hebron Encampment, Princeton Lodge No. 208, and the Daughters of Rebekah attended in a body to listen to an appropriate ser mon by Rev. C, D. Moore. Monday evening the citizens were invited to meet with the same organizations at Jesmer's opera house when Rev. Dr. Forbes, of Duluth, was present and ad dressed the audience. His speech was a very interesting one, replete with mm i.MMmkwummaiii Highest of all in Leavening Power.Latest U. S. Gov't Report humor and anecdote and when he finished those who were present were of the unanimous opinion that he had not spoken long enough. Oddfellow ship should enjoy a boom in Princeton for several months to come. Eleven. The Republican National Conven tion to be held in St. Louis June 16 will be the eleventh held by that party. The Burlington Route trains run to the principal points in eleven Statesa coincidence. Another fact is that from St. Paul, Minneapolis and all points in the Mississippi Valley, the Burlington ib the best and the direct line to St. Louis. Cultivate the ha*bit of breathing through the nose and taking deep breaths. If this habit was universal, there is little doubt that pulmonary af fections would be decreased one-half. An English physician calls attention to this fact that deep and forced respir ation will keep the entire body in a glow in the coldest weather, no matter how thinly one may be clad. He was himself half frozen to death one night, and began taking deep breaths and keeping the air in the lungs as long as possible. The result was that he was thoroughly comfortable in a few minutes. The deep respirations, he says, stimulate the blood currents by a direct muscular exertion, and cause the entire system to become pervaded with the rapidly generated heat.Ex. There are several estates hanging fire in the probate court of Mille Lacs county, the^ probating of which has been commenced but never completed.. Some of these date back ten and fifteen years or eyen longer. Probate pro ceedings were begun, and then for some reason abandoned with the re sult that matters are in no betted shape than if the estates liad never rtfeen brought into the court^In" cases^ where real estate is involved such a course is very likely to lead to com plications which it may be difficult to untangle Sooner or later this pro bating must be completed, and the earlier this is attended to the more generally satisfactory to all concerned will the results be. When the breezy, blooming bloom ers are universally the go, how will tailors press the creases in them, I should like to know? When the baby's head is nodding and it wants to take a nap, how can mamma lull her dar ling in a bifurcated lap? How can Bridget shoo the chickens with no skirt to flop and fling, when the creatures go a grubbing in the garden in the spring? But the question most annoy ing that out speculations hatch: Can she vie with men in action when she goes to strike a match? An exchange moralizes as follows: "What is the use growling about the weather? It does no good, but helps to make you unhappy. If you are a little behind with your seeding owing to the wet weather, remember that the condition of the ground is good and that the crop will grow the faster for it. Don't get mad. Nature will give you time enough to harvest this year's crop. Look on the bright side and stop worrying about-things you are not responsible for, and you will be happy. The rear of the Goss drive passed through Princeton last Tuesday at noon. It has been a very bad rear from Milaca in, requiring fifteen days, the logs being scattered out over all the meadows and sloughs. John Goss jr., who was in town a short time Tuesday, says that if the water re mains at its present pitch the drive will reach the boom company's limits in seven days. This is 5,000,000 feet. ABSOLUTELY PURE va drive of According to the report of the" rail road and warehouse commission, the telegraph operators are the poorest paid class but one employed by the Eastern Minnesota. They receive an average of $1.41 per day, the trackmen $1.21 and the section foreman $1 50. There is little encouragement in this for young men to acquire a knowledge of telegraphy. Mrs. J. M. Goss and Mrs. Jas. Berry came up from Anoka, Saturday, and spent the day with Mrs. E. I. Davis. Mrs. Ray Davis and child also accom panied them and is stopping in town for a few days preparatory to going up to Whitney Brook for the summer. Milaca Times. *Sl#fJt N. D.

Little Mildred Staples is suffering with a pair of badly scalded hands.
