W Give Credit Where Credit Belongs.
We always call attention to a man
when his honest efforts are crowned
with success, whether in business or
otherwise, and for this reason we
mention Mr. Nelson, our popular
photographer, who has been doing
business here for nearly a year. Of
all the different photographers which
we have had here permanently or tem
porarily there has never been one who
has given such general satisfaction nor
met with such favor among the citizens
of Princeton and the people of the sur
rounding country. Quite often we
see on Saturdays, when Mr. Nelson is
here, loads of people who have come
here from a distance of 20 or 25 miles
to have their pictures taken, and best
of all Mr. Nelson deserves this patron
age. He is an artist of fine ability,
and understands how to make a picture,
artistic in effect and permanent in its
keeping qualities. Besides this he is
an honest, reliable man, and it is nat
ural that he should meet with success
wherever he goes. Mr. Nelson owns
and operates three photo studios, one
at Anoka, being his headquarters and
home studio, one at Lindstrom, and
"t his studio here in Princeton where you
will find him every Saturday. He

A grand Fourth of July celebration

usual salute of artillery at sunrise, fol-
appropriate amusements and
a grand powery dance. Hand bills will
be out soon giving full particulars.^

One night when the world was sleeping in the
heart of the sweet May time
*Oh, how can I come'"' he answered. "Let me
alone, I pray,
For the verse which I now1

hearts of men will sway
'Come'" said the voice to a statesman, as he
a stood in the senate hall,
And men moved on at his bidding like troops
at a bugle call
"How can I come'' he answered "My sun at
its zenith stands,
Before it sets forever myname shall be known
in the lands
"Come'" said the voice to a mother, with her
children at her knee.
Dreaming how safe and happy their life by her
side should be
"Oh, I cannot come," she answered I pray
to you, let me stay
For how can I leave my darlings to wander far
No other word was spoken, but the poet left
The statesman's name was heard no more upon
the lips of men,
And the children found no mother, though they
called with sobbing breath,
For the voice which spoke all must obeyit

Unit Rule In Conventions. fSgggg
In Democratic presidential nommlf
Ing conventions the so called unit rule
prevails. In Republican presidential
conventions it does not, though in these,
too, it was formerly binding. In the
Democratic national convention of 1848
a resolution was passed to the effect
that in balloting for a presidential nom
inee each state should be entitled to as
many votes as the same state'had in the
electoral college, and that the delega
tion of each state should decide how it
would cast its vote. ^^t-
Very early in" the history of electing
delegates to a presidential convention
grew np the practice of instructing
those delegates how to vote. At the
Democratic convention of 1860 a reso
lution was passed allowing each dele
gate from a state to cast his individual
vote for whom he pleased as presiden
tial nominee, provided the state conven
tion had not instructed its delegates in
regard to the choice of candidates. As a
matter of fact, however, it is the custom
of the states to instruct their delega
tions to cast their solid ballot for a giv
en candidate. Practically a Democratic
state delegation is one individual with
a given number of votes, all to be cast
for the same candidate.
The effect is peculiar. If a state has
a delegation composed of 15 members
and 8 of them desire one candidate,
while the other 7 want another, no mat
ter how bitterly the two factions may
be opposed to one another, still the 15
votes of the state in the nominating
convention must be cast solid for the
man whom the 8 want. This is carrying
majority rule to such a stretch that a
delegate's vote is frequently actually
counted for a man whom he hates and
has opposed with all his might.
This year, in view of the differences
of opinion existing in the Democratic
party on the silver question, the conven
tion will probably be one of the most
exciting on record.
A rich man lately died and left a will
which divided $342,671.94 among his
sorrowing widow and his apparently
not at all sorrowing children. It was
found that ho had left by will $52,-
672.83 apiece to his three children. One
of his children was a daughter, which
makes the sequei more surprising. Aft
er the money had been allotted it was
proposed to erect a monument to the
father who had thus provided his duti
ful children with money enough to take
care of them all their lives.
Here is where the queer part comes
in. The widow and the executor wanted
a monument that would cost $2,000.
This was no great sum to be assessed on
themselves by the sons and daughter of
a father who had just left them so much
money. Appropriating the odd hundreds
and leaving the round sum of $52,000
to each one would have more thairpaid
for the stone. But, no! Tho3every pe
culiar children declared one and all that
$500 was enough to spend in honoring
their dead father's memory, and not a
cent more would they allow. They are
now at law about it. The moral seems
to be that if a man wants a respectable
looking tombstone he would better build
it himself before bo dies. Even then his
children might slice the marble off to
make tiling cr their bathroom floors.
Electricity is slowly but surely work
ing up to the time when it will do
something for the farmer Near Leipsic
an electrical machine has been devised
that will successfully do the work of
plowing a field, that, too, more cheaply
than horse or steam power can do. The
system used is that of the trolley. Where
an electrical wire runs along the high
way the power can be taken from that.
Where there is none, however, the power
must be developed by a steam traction
engine that is run into the field. A dy
namo is connected with it which fur
nishes the force that runs the plow. A
driver sits upon the plow to guide and
steady it. Erom. its mere description the
thing seems to be rather clumsy, as it
requires two plowsone before and the
other behind. When one runs deep into
the furrow, the other is tilted up into
the air. The driver sits upon the rear
plow. The plow is connected with the
dynamo by a cable, which conveys the
current Why( does not Edison or Tesla
or some gifted American invent a sim
ple electrio plow?
Some learned professors have been ex
perimenting on the filtration of water.
They find that if you put in one certain
chemical to kill the microbes and then
another chemical to kill that chemical,
you will have clear water. But really a
few microbes more or less would not
taste any worse than all the bisulphate
of calcium, the alkaline carbonates and
the alumrnic sulphates they fling into
the water so plentifully. No wonder the
things kill the microbes. The names
would do that. Ids
The newspapers report daily a fearful
list of murders, suicides and other-crimes
of violencenever before were there so
many. At the same time it is to be ob
served that only comic opera and light,
amusing farces and plays really pay in
the theaters. Tragedy on the stage is
played to empty benches. The people
must have some relief from the strain
of daily life and its real tragedies..
