Indian Agent Michelet Distributes "Warn. pum" to This Many Mille Lacs Indians A Lot Still Unpaid. "Indian Agent Simon Michelet re turned Wednesday from Vineland, ac companied by his chief clerk and others says the Bramerd Dispatch. "They had been to Vineland to pay off he Mille Lacs lake Indians. These Indians are very much scattered and it takes some little ti me to get them all paid off, out Agent Michelet states that there was a very good showing made on the first day. Of the 923 In dians located, 641 were paid off. Many of the others live nearly a hundred miles away, and as they do not get more than about $6.40 apiece it does not hardly pay them to drive so far. intends to make some other points around the lake to pay the balance of the Indians in a short time. "Of the number th at has been paid oft every Indian with all his families have been vaccinated. Particular ef fort was made to have all the Indians vaccinated, and before all are paid off none will escape. The recent little unpleasantness with smallpox,at Mille Lacs has prompted the officials to be very cautious, and eve ry care is being taken to prevent a further spread of the disease this winter.

CRUSHED BY THE CARS. A Great Northern Brakemau Fatally In jured at Milaca. Last Monday morning1 a brakeman on the Great Northern by the name of Dagg fell under he wheels of a freight train at Mila ca and sustained injuries which resulted in his death at St. Joseph's hospital in St. Paul on Mon day evening. Dagg was breaking on a St. Cloud extra and while it was switching at Milaca fell under the wheels in some manner and was terri bly crushed about the groin, besides having one of his legs broken in two places. The accident happened just before the morning passenger arrived and he tram was held until Dr. Bacon could attend the poor fellow's injuries and get him in shape to send to he hospital at S Paul. lived only a few hours, dyi ng in he evening. Dagg's folks, it is said, reside in Mich igan and he has a brother in Nor th Dakota. A Gruesome Discovery. The Mora Times of last week says: "While looking over a forty acre tract of land, recently purchased in Knife Lake town about seven miles above this place Tuesday morning, O. A. Norberg witnessed a ghastly sight, a sight whi ch would fill with awe the most hardened heart and one which few care to witness There in a grove of joung trees about a hundred feet from the road whi ch leads to Mille Lacs lake, a road which is traveled daily, was the skull of a human being dangling from a rope whi ch had been tied to a young birch tree. Up on examinati on Mr. Norberg discovered on he ground be fore him he remainder of a skeleton. It was found 'that the skeleton had been torn to pieces by wild animals, probably wolves, leaving the skull, as stated before, dangling from a tree, proving without doubt th at he man had been hung, probably by his wn hand Litt le remained to prove his identity as his body has been exposed to he elemen ts for many months, he flesh having dropped from the bones and the clothing having partly gone to decay." It is thought that the re mains were those of John Nordquist who was in Mora about a year ago, and started for O'Neal's camp in an intoxi cated conditition. was seen at the camps for several weeks, but acted strangely. In an Automobile. A automobile ride tin Thanksgiving day in Minnesota, A D. 1901. Look ing backward into Minnesota winters of olden time, the statement seems to border close on to fiction, but life in Minnesota is not all snowballs and icicles by a jug full. Not when a New York chauffeur calls for you and in vites you to enjoy several thousand cubic inches of delightful ozone while bowling o'er the pike in an automobile at the rate of thirty miles an hour. It was he editor's opportunity and don't you think for a minu te he was not at home. "Wrap th at robe about you" re marked Geo. Rauchfuss, the automo bi le expert as we seated ourself over the nine-horse power gasolene engine, and before we could say "thanks" we were crossing the Great Northern tracks head ed west for a spurt on the Greenbush boulevard. "This is But before we could say more the rapidly revolving gearing let out two or three links while Rauchfuss bit just a little tighter his cigar and we were obliged to close our mouth to prevent a premature inflation. "1 never But we rounded a corner right here" and there was more or less of a sensa tion of losing our equilibrium, but with a ton weight resting on the wheels with the ir heavy rubber tires, there was not the slightest danger of upsetting, and like a steed that takes the bit in its mouth and dashes away the automobile was soon headed for he Greenbush church, and "a home on the rolling deep" wasn't to be com pared with a home on the rolling VOLUME XXT.

A dog that essayed to chal lenge our rapid flight through the quiet precincts of Greenbush just saved bis carcass for a Thanksgiving bone by one desperate leap from the track. The church, a distance from town of four miles, was reached in ten min utes and we turned around and start ed back. There was no horse all winded and worn to jog back at a slow gat e, but the engine was whirring away as fresh as "ever With hardly a move ment to indicate that he was control ling the machi ne Rauchfuss sent it speedi ng over he road in a way that made our turkey dinner feel like seve n teen cents. With a slight variation of he horizontal bar in front of him he automobile was guided very easily and with the thrott le in the easy grasp of his left hand, he had most perfect con trol over the speed of he machine, and ran it like one familiar with its every mechanism. In-a few minutes we were back to town, after having enjoyed he exhil erating ride. W don't expect to buy an automobile "right away already yet," because they require a tender of 100 $20 gold pieces, but if we ev er quit he sanctum and get possession of a "40" and can strike close around the dollar mark with a few spuds, and the chicke ns will only eat clams and lay eggs inlaid with pearls, you can bet we will have an automobile. Strange Cattle Disease. A Sauk Centre dispatch says. Far m ers are alarmed over a new disease which has developed among cattle in this vicinity and which general ly proves fatal. Dr. S D. Brim hall, vet erinary of the Sta te boaid of health, has just completed an investigation and pronounces the disease to be simi lar to hemorrhagic septicarmia. It is of a contagio us nature and no cure has yet been found. A half-dozen of the finest cows on the Alexander Dryden dairy farm have died. The animals seemingly well at night, are found dead in the morning. Dr. Brimhall says the disease is of so contagious a nature th at even pasture lands where a diseased animal has fed is dangerous for other cattle advises the burn ing of all dead animals. The disease, or something similar to it, was found in Tenness ee in 1898, and no other cases were reported until August, 1900, when an outbreak occurred at New port, near St. Pau l. Last year from eight different sections of Minnesota similar cases were reported. Will Spend Winter in Florida. A. W Woodcock we nt to he twin cities Tuesday to make arrangements for leaving for Florida next week, to which place he will take his family for he winter, locating on a twenty-acre tract of land at Flora Home on the Georgia Southern & Florida railroad, and near the St. Johns river. Mr. Woodco ck purchased this tract of land some ti me a go with the intentions of developi ng it into a fruit and nut ranch, and has already made quite a few improvements on he place. The land is finely situated near a large lake that has an outlet into St. Johns river, and is 200 feet above sea level. Only a few miles from the place there is a two-foot tide on the river. The place will make a beautiful winter home for Mr. Woodcock's family and they in tend to remain until la te next spring before returning home. A good many northern people are interested in land in he same vicinity where Mr. Wood cock is located Trolley Line to the Lake. The Milaca Times is authority for the following statement: A Phila delphia capitalist has recently become interested to the extent of making in quiries regarding the feasibility of building and operating an electric rail way from Mila ca to the lake. pro poses to look the matter up thoroughly and if the circumstances are favorable enough, will organize a company to build the line. those familiar with he situation it looks li ke a payi ng proposition. The line would do a big business from the start and nothing in the way of trans portation could compete with it. Plenty of power could be secured from dams in the river, and the expen se of oper ating he line would be reduced to a minimum." Injured by an Emery Wheel. Last Sunday morning while at work at the Goss camp, Geo. Hazzard, who lives in Pierz, Morrison county, was struck on the head by an emery wheel and had his skull badly fractured. was taken to Milaca, where Dr. Bacon attended him. The injury is a serious one, though if inflamation does not set in, the injured man has a chance of recovering.
