Wi wi i *^0^^^^**S^^*^* The accompanying cut shows the new Methodist church of Princeton as it will appear when completed. The design is very much on the same or der as that of the Baptist church at Anoka that was completed a little over a year ago The new edifice is now being erected on the northwest corner of the same block on which the old church is located. The location is a good one. The church which is being built of Princeton cream brick donated by the brick yards, will cost $7,000 when completed. The plans provide for an auditorium with a seating capac ity of 2U0 A parlor in the rear of the church can be thrown open and will seat over 75 comfortably, while there will be a gallery with a seating capac ity of about the same as the parlor or lecture room.

There will be no services next Sun day, morning or evening, owing to the absence of the pastor ati conference. Sunday school and Junior and Senior Endeavor societies will meet at the usual hours. During the past year Rev. Haight has worked hard to place the affairs of the Greenbush-Blue Hill-Santiago cir cuit on a successful basis The circuit is a large one, and new in its forma tion, and Rev Haight was a total stranger when he took hold. There has been a little friction incident to the amalgamation of the new territory, but such a condition is to be met most anywhere During the year many im provements have been made. At the Greenbush church a large 100-foot shed for teams was erected, a well dug and the church aisles carpeted. The im provements amounted to $150. The Santiago church has been painted in side and outside, the walls tinted and the church made to look like a new edifice and the improvements amounted to $125 Rev Haight gave his per sonal supervision to the work, much of which he did himself The interest in church work has increased throughout the circuit which is in good shape for another year's work The churches contributed freely for benevolent pur poses and the pastor's salary is practi cally all paid Last Sunday closed the conference year of the Methodist churches in this part of the State, and the past jear of the Princeton church has been the most prosperous in the history of the church. When Rev. Gratz stepped into the pulpit of this church a year ago he was face to face with some very sour and sad looking faces, the visages of those who lamented the removal of Rev. Satterlee. It was not the best kind of a welcome that the new minis ter received, but he met the conditions philosophically and informed the mem bers of the congregation that they would have to love one another at least for a year. The year has gone by. As conference time came on apace the church was a unit in asking for the re turn of its pastor from the conference. He has proved the ablest and most sue cessful minister that the church ever had. During the past year the church has grown in a very gratifying man ner, both spiritually and materially. Twenty-six new members have been added to the church, four of whom were on probation. Ten adults have been baptised. Nearly $1,800 has been expended for minister's salary and other expenses.

In the basement there will be a large Sunday school room, with a parlor and library con nected therewith There will also be a kitchen and pantry, and a room for the heating and fuel plant. The base ment will be light and dry. The build ing committee of the new church is composed of A. W. Woodcock, W. H. Townsend, E. M. Farnham and N. E. Jesmer, while Rev. Gratz is also a working member and is devoting all his spare time to the wovk on the building. The walls will be put up and the church enclosed for the winter and some inside work done during the winter months. It is the intention to have the edifice completed some time next spring or summer. ciety has paid out the sum of $500. The sum of $150 has been paid for benevo lent purposes and $256 for improve ments, etc The church has every reason to congratulate itself on its prosperous condition. At the close of the year work is well under way on the new $7,000edifice that will be completed next year and will be a great credit to Princeton. CONGREGATIONAL.. Topics for next Sunday: Morning, "Ghnstian Climbing evening, "The Sifting of Simon." The hours for the evening services have been changed as follows: Christian Endeavor meeting, 6 45 p. regular services at 7:30. SPIRITUALISTS. Mrs. C. Tryon will speak at Farn ham's hall next Sunday evening on the subject "Let Us Reason Together." Plans for the State convention of the Young People's Societies of Christian Endeavor, to be held in St. Paul Octo ber 16-19, have been definitely formed. The State executive committee have arranged for a program of unusual in esrest and helpfulness, and the St. Paul city union, who will act as hosts to the visiting endeavors from throughout the State, haye their entertainment plans well in hand, so that those endeavors who are planing to attend the 1902 con vention may thus early assure them selves that a very pleasant and profita ble time is in store for them. Clarence E. Eberman, field secretary of the united society, will be present through out the three days' session of the con vention and will make several ad dresses. Secretary John Willis Baer on a recent visit to Minnesota said: "Eberman is the best man you could possibly get at a State convention." Northern Minnesota Conference. The Northern Minnesota conference of the Methodist church convened at Morris on Wednesday of this week. In the territory within the conference there are close to 170 pastors, and about 17,000 English speaking Metho dists. There will be few exciting ques tions to come before the conference. The "woman" question was settled and not a minister will have to be called on the carpet for any indiscreet acts dur ing the past year. Next Monday the appointments will be announced and the ministers will receive their assignments for the com ing year. The Princeton church is to be congratulated because of the fact that Rev. Gratz will return to his present charge where for the last year he has worked with great credit to himself and such good results to the church. In the neighboring circuits there will be some changes. Rev. Haight of the Greenbush-Santiago Blue Hill circuit, will in all probability go to a new charge. The past year in that circuit was the first under the triple-town alliance and all was not as harmonious as it might have been, be cause there were^a few objections to the formation of the new circuit. The placing of a new man in the field made the ministerial sailing not as smooth as it would otherwise have been. Rev. C. Johnson who has labored so faith fully and so industriously in the Cam bridge-Spencer Brook circuit, for some time, and who has filled appointments at Cambridge, Isanti, Spencer Brook and Zimmerman, will sever his connec tion with his present charge at the conference this year. Mr. Johnson will go to Boston where he will pursue his theological studies and his future work in the Methodist church will be else where than in Minnesota. Mr. John son will leave behind him a record of unselfish and loyal labor in the cause of Christianity and humanity. A change will be made in the Spen cer Brook circuit and a new circuit will be formed, composing Spencer Brook, Zimmerman and a few adjacent points Cambridge and Isanti will probably be made one circuit by them selves. Efforts are being made to build churches in both places and Rev. John son has the work well advanced. Sadden Death of Thomas Henry. The sudden and unexpected death of Thomas Henry at the Northwestern hospital last Friday afternoon came as a very sad shook to his relatives and friends. He returned from Royalton last week and acted in such a violent and hysterical manner that his broth er-in-law, Elmer Bigelow, thought it best the place bim in the hospital Fri day Dr Cooney pre&cubed for the man who seemed to quiet down. But about noon be left the hospital and was found down by the river. He was act ing in a strange manner and threatened to drown himself. He was taken back to the hospital and his clothes removed and he was placed in bed. While be ing cared for he became extremely violent and it became necessary to place muffs on him to prevent him from doing violence to himself and others. His temperature rose to 109 and despite all that could be done for THE PRINCETON UNION:? STHUBSDAT, OCTOBER 2, 1902. Lost All Hlg Hay. Last Sunday while Mr and Mrs S Walker of Greenbush were attend ing the funeral of Thomas Henry the fire fiend came nearly destroying all of Mr. Walker's buildings. The children were left at home' and one of the little girls dressed up, child fashion, in one of her brother's pantaloons, and went out to the hay stacks near the house to enjoy itself at a play house it had there. In one of the pockets of the pants the child found a match, and in childish innocence it lit the match and ignited the hay. In a minute the hay stack was all ablaze and all the property near by was threatened. The older girl un derstood the seriousness of the situa tion and sent one of the boys away on his wheel to give the alarm to the neighbors. In a few minutes several were on hand and they worked hard to save the buildings It was a fortunate thing that the wind was not blowing much and there were four wells on the farm which supplied plenty of water to drench the buildings. All the hay, amounting to about sixteen tons, was burned up, but Mr. and Mrs Walker considered themselves extremely for tunate that matters were not wor&e than they were. The children might have caught fire in attempting to put out the fire, and there was gteat dan ger of the buildings burning. While the destruction of the hay was quite a loss at this time of year, Mr Walker says that he considers himself very fortunate and is under great oblign tions to the neighbors who worked o hard to save his property. E. D. CLAGGETT, him he expired, passing into a stupor shortly before death ensued The funeral was held at the home of Mr. Bigelow on Sunday afternoon at 2 P. and the interment was at Oak Knoll. Rev. Gratz officiated. Mr. Henry belonged to a well known and highly respected family who feel very keenly his sad and untimely death. Lyceum Bureau Entertainments. Through the efforts of Rev. Gratz the people of Princeton will have the opportunity of listening to a series of five lectures and entertainments to be given at the opera house the coming fall and winter under the auspices of the Columbian Lyceum Bureau of St. Paul The first entertainment will be furnished by the Original Qauker Male Quartette that will appear at the opera house on the evening of Oct. 15.

Shot by a Tramp. Word has been received that Earl Cravens wss shot in the leg by a tramp some time ago in Missouri. He was with several persons waiting at a depot at a town in Missouri where .their horses were being transferred, and while at the depot a tramp who had had some words with a party in the de pot came in and commenced firing at one of the members of Mr. Craven's party but did not hit him. The tramp found he was shooting at the wrong man, and then he commenced firing at Cravens, thinking he was the man he wanted. The bullet struck Craven's right leg a few inches above the knee. Mr Cravens was brought north with the party and was placed in a hospital at Des Moines, where he Is recovering. Emery Discovered at Mille Lacs Lake. According to the Brainerd Arena emery has been found in large quanti ties at the western end of Mille Lacs lake in the vicinity of Midland, the new townsite of Abe Mark. While Mr, Mark and F. E Kenney of Brain erd were looking over the land at Mid land recently they found what they supposed was iron ore. Some of the mineral was sent to assayers at Du luth and Philadelphia and it was re ported that the mineral was pure em ery with slight traces of iron Emery is worth five cents a pound and if there is any deposit of any consequence the land in the vicinity of Mark's townsite will be worth more than simply for ag ricultural purposes Another Overhead Highway. Buffalo is to have an overhead high way similar to the overhead boulevard along the Potomac at Washington This highway will connect the city with the steel works and will be wide enough for a broad drive, street rail way tracks and sidewalks The peo ple of the west may rejoice that their cities still have room for boule vards on the level of the ground, and that golden grain belt beer can be had by telephoning your nearest dealer, or ordering of Henry Veidt, Princeton.
