Church Topics sist A AA Sunday and Weekday Announcements. 4 CONGREGATIONAL. Rev. O. W. Roberts, of North Branch, Minn., will fill the pulpit morning and evening1, didate. m,l lh coming as a can- Last Sunday Rev. Shults preached his farewell sermon, his year's pastor .ate having terminated, and Mr. Shults having concluded to sever his relation ship as pastor with the church. For the present he may not take a regular pastorate but will supply a pastorless church in Minneapolis. Both the morning and evening services were well attended and Mr. Shults' sermons were interesting and thoughtful. It is to be regretted that Mr. Shults is to leave the church and Princeton, and wherever he and his wife may in the future cast their lot their many friends here will wish them success and happi ness. There was no meeting of the Dorcas society this week. The matter of securing a new pastor has been left with a committee who will look up the matter of securing Mr. Shults' successor. METHODIST. The services at the M. E. church last Sunday were the last before the annual conference which is held at Brainerd this week. At the evening services the church was crowded and the pastor preached an interesting sermon on "Ahab, a Character Study." A class of four were taken into the church, two by baptism. The pastor, Mr. Satter lee, will take with him to the confer ence the best report in the history of the Princeton church. The church is absolutely out of debt and has property worth $5,000. Mr. Satterlee left on Tuesday for Brainerd accompanied by Mrs. Satterlee. They will be gone un til next Monday. On next Sunday Mr. Satterlee will preach at the First Baptist church in Brainerd. Mrs. Bessie Laythe Scovell, president of the State W. T. U., will fill the Prince ion pulpit morning and evening. An adult membership of 7,659,185 and an adherence of 24,899,421, the figures presented to the Methodist Ecumenical conference in London show what Wesleyans have accomplished. Moreover, it was shown that of all this vast number the American representa tion was easily in the lead. The church was started in England, but it has found the seat of its power in the United States. THE SILVER LINING. The following editorials from the Pioneer Press and Minneapolis Journal have so much elevating thought to them that we gladly publish them. They can be read with profit by all: A CLEARING ATMOSPHERE. The thunderstorm stirs and clears and sweetens stagnant atmospheres. A kindred effort is noticeable in the moral and political atmosphere as the result of the intense agitation follow ing the killing of President McKinley. It has led to a deal of national intro spection. It has shattered a great many of the pretentious structures of demagogy. It has led to such a sober examination of beliefs and theories as has not been imposed upon the Ameri can mind since cannon woke the echoes around Sumpter and sent their reverb erations along the length and breadth of a continent. There has been a great awakening to the seriousness of citizen shipto a sense of duty toward country as something that far overshadows the obligations of partisanship. That such an act as the assassination of our presi dent could have taken place, in the en tire absence of personal provocation or grievance, has been felt to cast a cer tain stigma upon our civilization. There is a general desire on the part of citizens to purge themselves of the slightest connection with anything in the remotest degree responsible for that stigma. Had American society lived up to its opprtunities that assas sin'? bullet would never have been fired. The leadership now demanded not Hiring1 is one that shall help us to a better re:- alization of American ideals. "Lead Kindly Liffht"the hymn sung with so PPerty obsequieshas voiced as never before a recognized national need. Providentially, it seems as though in i u~ \Mr. 8 the accession of Roosevelt to the presidential office the longing of the people for a pure, high-minded leader ship was being recognized. Roosevelt is to "set the fashion" in the style of public discussion, in the doing of pub he duty, in adjusting the standards of a true and patriotic citizenship. Men who admire and copy the Roosevelt characteristics of absolute cleanliness, truth, fair dealing and scrupulous obe dience to law, will come to the front in greater numbers than ever. We shall note the influence of the president's character in every municipality in the land. -The effects of the political and moral thunderstorm are likely to be peculi arly valuable in the city of New York. It is noticeable that immediately after the assassination of McKinley there was a rapid union of all the different types of anti-Tammany sentiment, each of which had been putting forward a different man as its preference for mayor, and that practically all these types have since crystalized in one, with Seth Low as the chosen nominee. Morally and intellectually, Low is of the Roosevelt type, and as such is apt to receive the indorsement of the dif ferent anti-Tammany party conven tions by majorities as large as that given him in the conference committee, made up1 of representatives from all the organizations, which was 68 out of 72. The cleansing of New York City politicsa thing which might other wise have been impossiblenow seems within reach as a result of the reaction toward righteousness set up by the martyrdom of McKinley and encour aged by the spectacle of Theodore Roosevelt in the presidential chair. Pioneer Press. GOD AND GOVERNMENT. God does not leave the world to be preyed upon by unbelief and anarchy, its product. He has spoken to this na tion to call it back to a recognition of his just claims as the supreme direct ing and governing force, and to the recognition of lawful, constituted hu man authority out of insubordination and defiance of law, and he has called a halt upon the process of dereligioning the political and social life of this countrya proces?sa the existence of which few willc have the hardihood to is undermining the republic 2 whi tb den y' an inj|f,8'.rit? This is no pessimism. It is deplor able truth, and the national safety lies in continued recognition of God as the moral governor of the universe and the bringing of the children and youth of the nation more under ethical teach ing which does not studiously exclude the idea of God and human responsi bility to him. There is no neutral ground to take on this subject, for the welfare of the nation and its fealty to God are so welded together that they cannot be separated. And ours is not a godless nation. When it becomes such it will presently disappear, as godless nations before it have disappeared. LETTER PROM ELMEK SEVERANCE.

The deceased was a man of except ional ability and was well posted on history and the current events of the day. Jovial in disposition, and pos sessed of a keen sense of humor, he made friends with all with whom he came in contact, and even in his mor tal illness, he never missed an oppor tunity of cracking jokes with the brother Masons who faithfully visited him daily. Upright in his business dealings, kind and thoughtful in relations with his fellowmen, he ..s universally respected and loved, an in his death the community has lost sterling citizen. Being without children, he and wife adopted in the East, a son a_d daughter. The former, E. W. Sever ance, and a brother William of Bear's Valley, Monterey county, alone sur vive him. Ume i adopteSixt movedhito Gilroy from Minnesota CHATS I of The UNION is in receipt of a letter from E. W. Severance, who how re sides in Gilroy, Cal., moving to that place about three years ago, to reside with and care for his father, Jonathan F. Severance, who passed away a short time ago, at the age of 77 years. Mr. Severance sends an account from the local press of his father's death, from which we publish the following: Jonathan F. Severance, one of na ture's noblemen and a man without an enemy in the world, departed this life on Saturday last at his home on East Seventh street, at the advanced age of 77 years. Death was due to diabetes from which he had been a sufferer for many years. For the past five weeks he had been confined to his bed. Shortly before his final illness he real ized that his days were numbered and made arrangements for his funeral. He selected a coffin at Undertaker Tryon's and prepared the inscription that he desired upon his tombstone, lea\ ing the date of his death alone, to be inserted. His last moments were peaceful, free from pain, and the spirit took its flight as gently as a babe slips into slumber. For him, death was a welcome visitor, for the world had lost it& charms since th^ death of his wife, eleven years ago, in Massachusetts. The funeral was held on Monday morning, being conducted by Keith Lodge, F. & A. M., the deceased being a staunch member of the Masonic fra ternity. The remains were interred in the Masonic cemetery and were fol lowed to their last resting place by a large number of friends. Jonathan F. Severance was born'in Dexter, Maine, on January 20, 1824. He was married in Bangor, Maine, in 1846. Shortly after the civil war broke out, he headed the call of his country and enlisted as a volunteer on February 18, 1862, being assigned to company D, Second Regiment of the Maine Infantry. He performed valiant service until he was incapacitated by sunstroke and was honorablv discharg ed on November 24 of the same year. Returning to his native state, he re mained there on his farm until 1877, when he and his family removed to Massachusetts. During the two years that he resided there he made two trips to his adopted son, E. W. Sever ance, in Minnesota. EventualltWte his wa id a his in WANTEDA capable giv\ for gen eral housework.

The beets were grown by Henry, Holthus, on his farm near Princeton, he having contracted with the com pany early last spring to raise two acres of beets, and he says he is well satisfied with the results so far. It was stated in the UNION last week that the beets of Mr. Holthus would yield as high as 30 tons to the acre, which was an error, as the yield will be 12 to 15 tons to the acre, as near as can be esti mated. The company agree to pay $4.50 a ton at the factory. "I raised my beets on a clay soil," said Mr. Hol thus, "though a heavy eandy soil is said to be much better. And another thing, I did not plough deep enough to get the best results, as with deeper ploughing the yield would have been much heavier, and of course more money would have been derived from the crop.'" Mr. Holthus things that the raising of sugar beets under the proper conditions ought to prove as re munerative to the farmer as the aver age field crop. There are not many farmers in this section who contracted to raise sugar beets this season. Will and Aug. Thoma raised two acres each, and there were a few other farmers who tried the crop. The results of the raising of sugar beets in this section will be watched with interest. Dennis Salee, of Freer, was in town on Monday, bringing in a load of hogs, which he sold to the E. Mark Live Stock Co., getting six cents for his pork, which is a pretty good price. Mr. Salee has been farming in Mille Lacs county for three years, coming here from Scott county. He thinks the op portunities for farmers in this section are good, and says many new settlers are coming into his section. The best land is mostly taken up now. Labt week 80 acres of land near Freer sold to a Dakota buyer for $2,000, and only four acres were cleared. Mr. Freer says his wheat went 15 to 20 bushels to the acre, and hi* oats 50 bushels. Po tatoes will run about 150 bushels to the acre. "I did not have many potatoes,"' said Mr. Salee, '"and sold most of my crop at 70 cents. I have a few I intend to hold over.'" Last year he built him a large barn with a capacity for about 30 head of cattle and 30 tons of haj. He keeps at present 12 head of cattle, mostly milch cows. "The UNION is much cheaper than it was a year ago," remarked Frank Leathers, of Baldwin, the other day. "Last year it took abouTj five bushels of potatoes to pay my subscription, while this year a little over one bushel would pay for the UNION one year." Mr. Leathers dug an acre and a half of po tatoes for which he received $226.85. "Golden Russets" is the name of a new variety of potatoes developed from the seeds of the Early Rose by R. C. Holmes, on his nursery farm at Crook ed Lake. This year's crop is the result of seed planted three years ago. The new variety is very early, and entirely scab-proof. In shape they rtsemble the Early Rose, but are of a golden color. In flavor and general qualities they ex cel any potato yet offered. Mr. Holmes has a limited supply to sell for seed at $2 per bushel. Call at R. D. Byer's store and see samples. 4 N!D printed in red on goodsmokt WATCH The weather has been dull and dis'" agreeable, but let us hope for bright Indian summer days for the fair. tm/ZMwrsm THE PRINCETON TIKIOK: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 190l!
