Among those in attendance at the meeting were the following: Chas. A. Sprandel and O. Duclos of Little Falls J. M- Moog of St. Cloud C. H. Beumer of St Augusta: Aug. Lundgren of Watren Louis Moline and Nels Flykt of Willmar J. S. Bowers of Minneapo lis, representing the Hennepin Brick Co., of six yards M. S. Rusfeldt of Albert Lea, representing the yards at Albert Lea and also the Wrenshall yards Henry Hess of St. Cloud F. J. Nixon, of Paine & Nixon of Duluth, sales agents of the Princeton and Wren shall yards: Philip Diesanz of the Win ona Stone quarries and brick yards. Those present who represented local brick making interests were E. M. Farnham, J. R., H. H. and C. G. Farn ham, W. H. Oakes, Chas. Oakes, Mil ton Farnham, F. Reem, and R. P. Mor ton, who has charge of the book keeping, etc., for the brick yards at Brickton. The president of the association, W. P. Alsip of Grand Forks, was absent and O. Duclos acted as chairman of the meeting which was held in the baao^tinir inttbe^Dd^P^nows3 block, on Tuesday afternoon. The address of welcome was made by J. R. Farnham. The secretary, Louis Moline of Will mar, made his annual report for the association, after which the conven tion settled down to the discussion of various trade topic3. A very inter esting program had been arranged, consisting1 of practical papers by mem- bers of the association, but as several on the program were absent this part of the program was somewhat abbre viated. E. M. Farnham spoke on "Transporting Clay From Bank to Ma chine'' which called forth much practi cal discussion. W. H. Oakes spoke on '-Burning Brick" which proved one of the most interesting topics of the whole meeting. Mr. Hess of St Cloud, spoke on the question of "Oil Fuel," and stated that the crude oil as it comes from the wells could be bought very cheaply of the Standard Oil Co. Mr. Bowers of Minneapolis, also spoke on the question of oil burning in the manufacture of brick. He hab given the matter considerable study and some little experiment and his views on the subject proved very interesting to the members of the association. M. S. Rusfeldt of Albert Lea, spoke on "Coal Dust Burning" and gave the meeting an interestingN account of the use of coal dust in the burning of brick. For this purpose the fine hard coal screen ings are mixed with the clay and with this treatment the brick in the pro cess of burning is made hard and dur able and also does not require so long a time to finish the product. Mr. Rus feldt said that he found that by using this coal dust at his yards at Albert Lea he had saved in a season in the manufacture of 2,200,000 brick all of $500. He said that the coal dust or screenings could be bought for about $1 per ton. In the mixing of the clay with the coal dust he used a tempering pit that would hold about 20,000 brick The matter of fuel for burning is be,. coming a very important one with the brick manufacturers and the use of oil and such auxiliaries in burning process like coal dust and screenings are to be looked into in a practical manner. A meeting. I!I!^ president, C. A. Sprandel vice president and-Louis Moline 9ecretary and treas urer. __^ The association decided to hold its next meeting sometime in January in Minneapolis, and H. H. Farnham, Henry Hess and W. H. Oakes were ap pointed a committee to prepare a pro gram for the meeting. E. M. Farn ham was appointed a committee to look up quarters and also make hotel arrangements, etc. It was late in the evening when the association finished its labors and when ready to adjourn for refreshments the members, together with the Retail Grocers' association of Princeton pro ceeded to the banquet hall on the sec ond floor of the building where a ban Princeton had the honor of enter taining this week the Northwestern Brickmakers' Association, an organi zation that represents the brick mak ing interests of the northwest, and the brick making interests of Minnesota especially. The third annual meeting quet was served by the Princeton brick of this association was held here in Princeton on Tuesday, and cream brick hospitality was on tap in a generous of the hall was one long table. It was measure. The fact that Princeton is one of the largest brick manufacturing towgs in the State, made the place a popular one in which to hold the annual meeting of the association, and former sitting at the head of the table J?T".iiTVT7 attend makers in honor of the visiting mem bers of the association.

Jesmer, F. S. Walker, F. L. Ludden, D. C. Johnson, T. F. Scheen, and R. P. Morton. It was 7.30 when the guests were seated for sapper and by the time supper was finished and a few speeches were made it was 9:30. The supper was served by the Ladies' Aid society of the Methodist church, and they did themselves proud both in the menu and the serving of the same. During the progress of the supper Mrs. Ewing kindly presided at thepiafroand rendered several musical selections. After the supper was finished J. R. Farnham acted as toastmaster and short speeches were made by Mayor Armitage, Judge Keith, G. F. Wright, N. E. Jesmer and L. W. Pierson. The visiting brickmakers tendered a vote of thanks to the Princeton brick makers and citizens who entertained them in such a hearty manner and also complimented the ladies on the excel lent manner in which they served the supper. The delegates left for their homes on the morning train on Wed nesday well pleased with Princeton hospitality. Philip Diesanz of Winona, did not arrive until Tuesday night and missed the suppern.

The brick makers all feel confident of a good season's business Messrs. Byers, Carew and Anderson of the Grocers' association were unable to attend the banquet. On Tuesday forenoon the delegates were taken in a body to Brickton and inspected the various plants at that place, returning to the hotel for dinner. Mr. Nixon of Duluth, who handles the product of the Princeton yards, took great interest in the gathering. He says Princeton brick are all right. O. Duclos of Little Falls has been in the brick making business for forty two years, and yet he is not too old to leajn and never fails to attend the annual meetings. Owing to the scarcity of wood at the yards at Brickton on account of the poor hauling the past winter the yards at that place will have to use edgings from the mill at Milaca the coming season. I The association was organized in St. Cloud two years ago with a few mem bers. Last year it met at Little Falls. The membership while not large, re presents the leading brick making in terests of Minnesota. The stock of brick at the yards at so, but later drove down from Milaca with a livery rig and the marshal im mediately took Tibbets in charge and sent him to the Hennepin county jail to serve his sentence.

The Institute Will be One of the Best That Has Been Held in the State this Winter. On Friday and Saturday of next week a farmers' institute will be held in the opera house in Princeton. The business men of Princeton worked hard to get a two-days' institute here, and it is to be hoped that the farmers will all turn out and make the event a most interesting one. There will be many addresses by practical farmers and members of the institute instruc tors, and every topic discussed will be of great interest to farmers in this sec tion. The farmer'discussed. he __.t ,his The es wife should attend W be the institute, as many things of inter- Mrs. W. F. Wilcox will talk on household top ics. Farmers, do not leave your wives behind, but bring them along. One of the interesting features of the institute will be the question box, in which questions can be placed and they will be answered in some of the sessions of the institute. The sessions will commence at 10 a. m. and continue until 12 m., and the afternoon sessions will last from 2 to 4, allowing farmers plenty of time to get home for evening work. The State farmers' institute is our traveling school of agriculture, which brings to our very doors the experien ces, means and methods for the best known practical results. It is all free, no collections and no charges. Tell all your neighbors. Bring your friends and get all the benefits. Remember the time, place and date. Be sure you are on time. At the close of the first session, a very valuable book of over 350 pages (the Institute Annual,) devoted to agri culture, stock raising, horticulture, dairying, sheep husbandry, swine hus bandry, poultry raising, domestic econ omy, etc., etc., will be given free. This book is estimated by those who have carefullyexamined it, to be well worth farmer should miss this free gift. T. B. Terry of Ohio, the long recog nized authority of the United States on successful potato growing in all its es sential details, will be here for two days and we fully believe there is not a farmer in all this great potato district who can afford to miss this institute. Come early and get it all. Now that it is fally demonstrated that the corn crop is becoming a staple live stock crop in Minnesota, this fea ture of the institute will be made as practical as possible by one of its best corn growers The creamery feature of the insti tute will be handled by one of long ex perience in Minnesota. Feeding and stabling dairy cows will be intensely interesting to all those who want the best results. The poultry feature of the institute will be handled by a man who has 3,000 laying hens and he can point out where success and failure lies in the business. Tillage of the soil and rotation of crops will be a feature of the institute that every farmer in this section should understand. Tibbets Released. Chas. Tibbets who was sent to the Hennepin county jail last January on a commitment by C. A. Dickey who was then justice of the peace, was released last Tuesday on a writ of habeas cor pus. Tibbets concluded that he had been in jail long enough and engaged the services of a lawyer. Figuring from the date of the commitment pa pers his ninety-day sentence expired on March 4th. It will be remembered Wednesday Marc at that when he was committed to jail he was told if he would leave town he would escape imprisonment and he did NORTWESTERN HOSPITAL NOTES.
