Larson made a sacrifice indeed for his friend, for he had been in the institution a matter of a year, and was regarded as a trusty and reli able man and his parole and final dis charge were events not so far in the distance. He had several times been in St. Cloud with a reformatory team wholly unaccompanied by a guard or other person and it is believed he yielded to the "con*" talk of his fellow townsman in a moment of weakness. The fact that the man Sullivan had successfully evaded capture is also be lieved, to have influenced the men in making the break. A evidence of their forethought as to their future course of action in effecting an escape was found in the fact that they took the trace chains and tugs off the team's harness, it is presumed for the pur pose of tjing themselves to the tops of passenger trains in stealing rides across the country. uu iv:ng i i and the trot. bel.ef Ost OU pat-o' END A LAST. District Court Holds That John Tierney Has a Majority of Forty-Six. Judge Pond and his associate who heard the arguments in the Anoka county shrievalty contest have filed their decision, declaring John Tierney to have been legally elected. The first official count gave Tierney, the Demo cratic candidate, a majority of six, which was duly certified to him. On a recount demanded by the Republicans, George W Merrill, the Republican candidate, was given a majority of two votes. The Snal decision is that Tier uey was elected by a majority of forty six of the legal \otes of the county. Mi,} nmpnlif JriVi'nn1.

Our exchange tells us of an editor in the lower part of the State who almost dropped dead in his tracks the othe. day when one of his successful county candidates expressed his anpreciation of his paper's support dining the cam paign. This is certainly a rare occur rence and the editor would be excisa ble for his action if he should publish the candidate's portrait, -o mat the newspaper men might sec for once in their life time the picture of an angel It ought to be printed at once, for there is so much ingratitude in poli tics that the -.ame fellow wih very likely, before another year toils by. be everything he can to urn the aforesaid editor and his paper out of the country by starving to death or by trying to belittle or cripple the ed itor. There are some men who feet and show some gratefulness to the party paper after the campaign is over, but the number of such men is not sufficiently large to crowd others out of the procession. Hihb'uvj Neir^. Sunday one of the most severe bliz zards of the winter swept across the country south of us. the northern edge of the storm touching along the south ern boundary of the State. Telegraph, and telephone lines were completely wrecked and railroads were blockaded. While the storm was raging we were enjoying the balmiest kind of weather. Editor Cravens seems to forget that Milaca was represented on the grand jury which condemned the county jail. The UNI ON will state, for the benefit of the purblind editor, that there are few people of his caliber in his own town. There are whole lot of people living there who do not agree with him in his narrownessmen who inti mate that the mind is missing in the Times genius.
