The bean carrying contest occupied the time of several who were anxious to score high for the prize, and Rev.grounds Gratz succeeded in making the highest score, carrying eighty-two beans on a table knife across the room. He was presented with a dried apple pie, at least it looked like one. Everybody had a good time, and it was certainly cheap at five cents anyway. Superintendent of Schools Whitp and C. A. Jack left to-day for Oregon to prove up on their stone and timber claims. They will make a flying trip and expect to be bome in time to vote. They do not propose to invest in any more Oregon mules if they can help it, as during their last trip they discov ered that a good healthy Oregon mule after he had fallen over the mountain side and was unfit for further transit was worth close around a hundred dol lars. While prospecting for good claims on their first trip out they had engaged a good sound husky mule to pack their supplies over the moun tains, and the mule had some kind of a defect in his vision and walked over a precipice and refused to proceed. JThe Princeton land seekars had to settle for the animal and wished many a time that it had been transported to South Africa and m,et its, fate while assisting in empire building In that far-away country, Big Onion Crop. Tfte onion crop this year is a very large one tributary to Princeton and the bulk of the crop was raised in the town of Princeton and Bogus Brook. The Caley Hardware Co. is buying most of the crop that is arriving this fall and is storing the onions in large frame racks in the basement. Onions require considerable care in storage to avoid loss in shrinkage and deteriora tion of crop from sprouting, as an onion with a green top is sure to get a hump on itself and commence to grow unless it is kept real dry and cool in storage. Mr. Caley is storing the crop in large racks six inches deep so that the onions can be spread out well to prevent heat ing and accumulating moisture. The temperature of the cellar must be kept at 28 to 30 degrees and an even temper ature maintained during the storage period. He is paying 62 to 65 cents a bushel for onions at the present time and has about a thousand bushels in the cellar at present There are about 5,000 bushels that will be marketed at Princeton this season, and Mr. Caley is going to considerable expense and trouble to provide storage capacity for the big crop. The work of handling the crop requires much labor. i Promotion for Capt. Brisbin. Friends of Captain W S. Brisbin, quartermaster of the Third regiment and who was formerly second lieuten ant of Company M, will be pleased to learn of his promotion to passenger aeent in Minneapolis of the Burlington road While an engineer for the com pany he lost his right arm above the elbow. On one of his home-coming trips to St. Paul he noticed a train standing on the track ahead. He at tempted to stop the engine, but found it impossible to avoid a collision. It was then that he compelled his fireman to jump while he stood by his engine to the last moment As the crash came he grasped the railing and attempted to swing from the cab, but the tender crashing forward, caught his arm and held him until help came. His brave attempt to stop his train undoubtedly saved the company a great loss. Captain Brisbin is a son of the late Captain Brisbin of the First United States cavalry, who achieved fame at the time of the Custer massacre. Captain Brisbin has many friends in Princeton with whom he got acquainted during the Spanish-American war, and he has visited here several times, re newing his war acquaintances Eclipse of the Moon The eclipse of the moon last Fri day night was well worth staying up to see The clouds rolled bv in time for the big lunar show that began ac 'cording to scientific calculations at 10:17:18, and the total phase began at 11:19.00 and ended at 0:47:54 and at 1:49:42 the eclipse had ended and the moon went on rubbering just the same as it used to. The peculiar coppery red color of the moon when the disc was entirely in the shadow was said to be due to the emission of the light of the sun which the moon had absorbed in the last two week. About 1 250 of the moon remained unshaded, but to the eye unaided by artificial means the brilliant area remained invisible. The Equitable Leads. The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the U. S was organized in 1859, the Mutual Life in 1842 and the New York Life in 1843. Notwithstanding the great difference in ages the Equitable to-day leads every company in the world in life insurance for financial strength, protection and for profit to its policy holders The surplus of the Equitable is $71,000,000 The Mutual Life $63,000,000. The New York Life $44,000,000. Future results are what you are after and the best pays the best, at least so think a great many of Princeton's people who carry Equitable policies Target Practice. The members of Co. who partici pate in target practice Sundays are getting interested in their work. They are just setting accustomed to the The scoring last Sunday was by a team of ten.
