it is presumed jrged Larson to cut and

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

pose of tjing themselves to the tops of

vote. The returns showed 89 votes in

The wheel of fortune proved a se

was enticed into a small show in lower

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

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

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

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
