NEED A RAILROAD
The People of the Mille Lacs Lake Region
chants who have located in that coun
try, the Mille Lacs region, in the
course of ten years, is bound to see
wonderful growth in wealth. Minne
apolis people who have visited Mille
Lacs lake look upon that body of water
as one of the coming popular resorts
for twin city people. With fair train
service the lake would be only five or
six hours from Minneapolis
A few years ago the land holdings of
th.e State and railroads in that section
were large. Now nearly all State and
railway lands have been taken. Peo
ple have been locating there in ad
vance of the railroad and agitation for
an extension is beginning in earnest
A Correspondent Advocates a Splendid
Improvement for Princeton
Princeton needs a park. And Prince
ton may, have such a park as would be
at once the delight of all inhabitants
and the envy of her sister towns
The writer ha in mind a pretty
.liii-S town4n the southern part of Min
nesota lying in a valley partly encir
cled by verdure-clad hills, its chief at
traction a beautiful, shady little park
near the "cettte? of the village, on the
main business street Here the farm
ers, for a day'b shopping mav enjoy
rest and shade during the noon hour
and here the towns-people, wending
their various ways, may take off their
hatg and enjoy God's breezes and the
ingmg of His birds. There is a pretty,
well-built band-stand and thus the
music, supported by the business peo
ple, instead of being far-removed from
them as is too often this case, is
brought within pleasant, listening dis
tances of those who have least time to
enjoy it and who, perhays, crave it
The presence of this little spot of
greensward gives an air of respect
ability to the town, it shows that the
"almighty dollar" is not so important
a factor but that a few feet of ground
can be spared for Mother Nature
Princeton has the possibility of one
of these "breathing places" on her
main street and with the great, added
attraction of a river close at hand.
Surely, none will ask whereall minds
must at once revert to the vacant lots
just across from the opera house.
Think of the possibilities' Beautiful
shade-trees, rustic seats, flower-beds, a
band-stand, pretty little boats on the
riversometime, a foot-bridge thrown
across to connect with more park, as
extensive as we choose to make it, so
that two minutes' walk would trans
port one from the dust and heat of the
city to the wildest country haunts.
Our "old elm" would be within its en
vironments and thus historical associa
tions would lend another attraction to
the convenience, comfort and beauty
of the spot.
The former owner of these lots, Mr.
Samuel Ross, was one of the founders
of our town and prime mover in all
that pertaining to its early welfare
it would be a nice little act of courtesy
to bestow his name upon our park.
Surely, this is not entirely "vision-
ary." Those who have experienced
the delighcs afforded by these^green
spaces which are coming to be fae
adjuncts of every thriving town, will
see the utility of the plan. These im:
provements mean muchthey mean
the attracting to our community of the
very best class of citizens and the
building up of the churches, schools
and most desirable business interests
Will not the business men interest
themselves in this? Can we not
some way purchase the lots, form a
village itnprovement society and by
The extension of the Great Northern
road from Milaca into the Mille Lacs
region is something that the shippers
of Minneapolis are for, says the Minne
apolis Journal. The development of
the Mille Lacs country has been going
on ^steadily for the past two years
This spring large numbers of persons
purchased lands and settled in the
counties of that section and a large in
crease in the number of country stores
has been the result The amount of
freight from Minneapolis consigned to Minnesota Crop Conditions for the Week
interior points in the Mille Lacs coun
try is already large and better trans
portation facilities area necessity.

wholesalers and in that of the mer-
The Cream of
means of subscriptions, voluntary or
solicited entertainments and the like
secure a fund to be used in the beauti
fying and improving of our park and
the promoting of all other worthy in
terests, as well?
Let us all unite in taking this mat
ter in hand. Let us help our town
from the universally acknowledged
position she now occupies as "one of
the prettiest places in the northwest"
to her legitimate station "at the head."
Endiug May 20
There were local showers early in
the week in Hubbard, Becker, Clay,
Norman and Polk counties, and in the
*e southeast. Those showers ex
ed over small areas, and they were
generally light except in western Nor
man county, where they were locally
very heavy. Early in the week the
temperatures were low, being near the
freezing point on the morning of the
14th in some exposed places. The low
temperatures of the 11th, 12th, 13thto
and 14th do not seem to have caused
injury except to a little barley, some
garden vegetables and a few fruit blos
soms which were somewhat frost bit
ten In the Red River valley oats,
barley, flax and millet are being sown
as the land is being prepared, for them.
South of the Red River valley the
planting of corn and potatoes has been
going on during the week, and in many
places it is finished early planted corn
and potatoes are up Flax seeding is
going on, and new breaking is being
used largely for this crop. Winter rye
is heading, but it is 9aid to be thin.
Wheat, oats and barley are growing
splendidly, with good stands, the re
cent cool weather having been very
favorable for stooling. The surface
soil is dry, and though there is suffi
cient moisture for the present at a
depth, rain is much needed especially
for the late sown grains, grass and
pastures, the need being greatest in
southeastern counties. Pastures are
yielding abundantly and grass prom
ises a good hay crop. Chinch bugs are
appearing in large numbers in the
southeast, and some pieces of barley
and rye infested by them have been
plowed under to be sown to other crops.
Bogs May Be Valuable.
The existence of almost exhaustless
beds of peat in various parts of Minne
sota, combined with the absence of
natural coal, attaches great local in
terest to the announcement in the Bos
ton papers of a method of producing
artificial coal by a chemical combina
tion of peat, petroleum, bituminous
pitch and "two other minerals impor
tant when chemically considered but
insignificant when commercially con
sidered." Peat is, of course, the main
ingredient. The inventor is Dr. G. M.
Randall, a practicing physician in
Lowell. He calls his product "synthet
ical coal."' He does not claim that it
is better than anthracite, but declares
that it can be used far more economic
ally in localities where peat exists and
which are far from coal mines. It is
described as being practically free
from sulphur, free from silicon and
other useless and deleterious elements.
Its residual ash is light and feathery,
absolutely free from glass and clinkers.
It burns without black smoke, and the
gases of combustion are as harmless
as smoke of wood Ifc can be manu
factured in localities remote from tide
water with economy It cannot be
made economically on a small scale.
The plant, once started, should be run
night and day.Pioneer Press.

Three Great Railway Systems.
Three great railroad schemes will
probably be realized in the 20th cen
tury. From Cairo to the Cape is build
ing, from St. Petersburg to Vladivostock
is being rapidly pushed to completion,
and a third great road, from New York
Buenos Ayres is already projected.
Of this last system, 4,500 miles are al
ready in operation and 4,300 would be
required to complete it. The total
mileage of the three systems, when
completed would be 18,000 miles of
which 9,000 are now in use.
One thing can be said definitely in
regard to the coming century: it will
produce for health or appetite nothing
better than "Golden Grain Belt" beer,
for it is absolutely pure, brewed from
prime barley and selected hops, and
aged with the utmost care: finally, it
is bottled with absolute cleanliness and
sent out to all parts of the country to
make men strong and healthy. If you
wish to better your health keep this
beer in your house. Order from your
