Taping at the Door at Hidnight^by the Sheriff and a Shockingly W Sudden Summons. ST Last kondej night Sheriff Claggett and Marshal Newton went to a board house in Princeton and took into custody Charles Becker, local agent of the Singer Sewing Machine Co., and Mrs. Harry Norman of St. Paul. Mrs. Norman with her pretty little daughter between six and seven years of age, came up on the evening train Monday. They were met at the depot by Becker who kissed the woman and child as af fectionately as though they were his own wife and daughter. He took the woman and child to his boarding house where he introduced Mrs. Norman as his Fife. Becker had informed the boarding house keeper on Sunday that he expected his wife would be up Mon day and he stated that he desired to make arrangements for board for his wife and child until he could find a house and go to housekeeping. Becker had roomed at the Norman house in St. Paul for three months prior to com ing to Princeton last October. Norman and his wife knew of his whereabouts and when Mrs. Norman started awa\ from her home on Monday her husband evidently surmised her destination and had his attorney get in communication with Sheriff Claggett, acquainting him with the woman's mo% ements and giv ing the officer a good description of her. He also did not forget to mention Beck er and post the sheriff on him. Of course it did not take the sheriff long to pick out the woman for he was an eye witness of the affectionate meeting of Becker and the Norman woman. Becker took the woman and child to his boarrding house and introduced them as, his wife and child. They were given a room with two beds and the parties were found in the same room when the officers called at 11:20ern p. nu The woman was in her night gownfW'hile Becker wasnot attired tor a journey to the arctic region. After being taken into custody Becker was placed in the lockup while the woman and child were taken to the Commer cial hotel. In the e^ ening Mr. Norman and his attorney, John F. Selb of St. Paul, arm ed. Becker and Mrs. Nor man secured the sen ices of Attorney Dickej. After arriving Norman had an inten iew with his ife. and it was thought best to siniph prefer charges of disorderly conduct against Becker and Mrs. Norman. There was some talk of holding them for adulter} and let the grand ]ur\ handle the matter, but no grand jurj will be drawn for this term of court and the matter of holding them on a more serious offense was dropped. The} were brought before Justice Chadbourne jesterdaj morning and Becker was fined $5 and costs, the whole amounting to about $15.00. Becker was discharged and the woman and child went away, returning yester day morning with Norman, who says that his wife will go to her folks in southern Minnesota and remain there. Norman and his wife have been hav ing a lot of trouble of late and it is said that last week she had him arrested for assault and battery, preferring the charge to use as a club over him. Ru mor has it that they have not lived happily together. She telephoned Becker last Sunday that she would leave Norman and come to Princeton. While .Norman did not admit it he evidently intends to use this case against his wife in a suit for divorce should he conclude to bring one, though he seemed to show much char ity and forgiveness for his erring wife, and the chances are that an attempt at reconciliation will be made. Becker did not go to the train when the Nor mans took their departure, but seated himself on a lumber pile and saw them pass by. Methodists to Lay Corner Stone. The corner stone of the new Metho dist Esiscopal church will be laid next Sunday with appropriate ceremony. The presiding elder, Rev. Robert Forbes, D. D., will be present and preach an appropriate sermon in the morning. In the afternoon at 3 o'clock the service of laying the stone will be conducted on the site of the new church. This is a public service to which all are welcome. Death of Airs. Christine L. Gustafson. Mrs. Christine L. Gustafson died last Sunday at the home of her son in Bogus Brook after an illness of over a year. She suffered a stroke of palsy a year ago last February which confined her to her bed until she died. She was seventy-five years of age. Mr. anddear, ___ Mrs. Gustafson came to Minnesota from Chicago in 1854 and settled in Goodhue county where they resided until three ears ago when they moved to Bogus Brook and made their home with their youngest son. There are six children besides a hus band to mourn her loss. The sons are: A. Gustafson of Madison, Minn. A. Gustafson of Cannon Falls, Minn. E. Gustafson of Grand Rapids, Mich., and Henry E. and O. E. Gustaf son of Bogus Brook. The daughter, Mrs. Ida Johnson, lives at White Rock The remains were taken to Vasa, Minn., and were interred in the Lutheran cemetery at that place. Busy Zimmerman. Business is on the hop, skip and jump down at Zimmerman and the place is to witness a rapid growth the coming season. Alreadj there are sev eral new buildings contemplated, among which will be a hotel and sa loon which it is said Mr. Blanchett of Elk River will put up. It is also ru mored that Frank T. White will put in a bank and real estate office. Several residences will be built the coming spring and summer, and Zimmerman will get right into the procession and hustle. The firm of Harry English & Co. is doing a big business and Mr. English now has a large corps of clerks to help look after the business. Zim merman handles quite a large number of potatoes every year as well as a lot of farm produce, etc. The Popular Burbank. The good sound Burbank of the Min nesota potato belt is being much sought by potato dealers at the present time, and the demand at present exceeds the supply. Red stock is nominal now, Triumphs and Ohios are almost nil, but the sound white stock is in good demand, and is selling as high as thirtj cents. There are several track bm ers on the market at the present time, and the regular dealers are also looking hard for the Burbank. A Chicago bm er came on the market last week and wants five cars a week if he can get them. He says that the best Chicago trade is partial to the Minne sota Burbank which far surpasses the white stock of any of the other north states. Looking Over Congregational Field. Rev. R. G. Jones, pastor of the Con gregational church of Stewartville, Minn., preached in the Congregational church last Sunday. Rev. Jones has been pastor of the Stewartville church for eight years, and the church has a membership of 130. the town ha\ ing a population of less than 1,000. He came here to look o\ er the field, and to get acquainted. There is some talk of Mr. Jones as the next pastor of the Prince ton church, though he was frank in statting that he was not looking for another field, as hew as perfectly satis fied where he was at present, and where he can remain if he desires. Ben Soule Street Commissioner. A special meeting of the council was held last night to take up some matters of importance. Mr. Rutherford will be away next Monday night and the council will meet again to-night and finish the work before it, so that at the regular meeting Monday night all the council will have to do will be to ap prove the minutes of the special session. At the meeting last night Ben Soule was appointed street commissioner in place of C. H. Chute who did not want the position. Ross-mere Looking: Vp. John W. Goulding says that lots in Ross-mere addition are in good de mand. He has recently sold eight lots in that addition, on which several new dwelling houses will be built the com ing spring and summer. R. M. Neely has bought three lots, Elmer Whitney two, F. W. Milbrath one, John Bridge one, while Ed. Drescher, who is at present building on a lot in Ross-mere has bought another on wnich a house will be erected. Appendicitis Operation. Annie Kaliher, the ten-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Kaliher, was brought to the North western hospital last Friday in a criti cal condition from an attack of ap pendicitis.

NO. 16. FOR JUDGEAND JURY The April Term of Court Will Con- vene Next rionday for Plaintiff and Defendant. There Will-be No Grand Jury Called Seven Criminal and Twenty eight Civil Cases. The April term of court will convene next Monday and Clerk of Court Briggs has been kept busy the past week mak ing up the calendar and filing the pa pers in the many disputes that the court or jury will be called upon to set tle. As stated last week there will be no grand jury called. On the criminal calendar there are seven cases in all, most of them being cases carried over, and a few are appeals from justice court. The Frank Goulding case is on the calendar, as is also the case against Gustaf Gatz for assault in the first de gree. Fred Bradshaw who was in dicted for grand larceny a year ago and had his case put over because of "the absence of a very important wit- ness," and who gave bonds for $500, has his name on the big book, and this is as far as the case will ever get in all probability. The appeal case of the Stowes from Foreston is on the calen dar and the case of Louis Erickson for the illegal sale of liquor, which is an appeal from justice court is also on the list. T. E. and Mary Potts and the hired man, Nils Quick, are defendants in a case where Nora Marvin is the complainant, the charge being assault in the third degree. It is the rem nants of the old trouble between the Potts and Mrs. Marvin. S. A. Young berg and Ed Cesar who were arrested and fined in justice court for running a bowling alley in Milaca on the Sabbath day, have appealed the case which will be disposed of before the district court. There are twenty-eight cases on the civil calendar, twelve of which are con tinued cases from last term. There are few cases of any great interest to the public in general. J. G. Dregnie who formerly kept the postoffice at Freer and whose store was burned some time ago, has brought an action to recover his insurance irom the Citi zens' Mutual Fire Insurance Co. A new trial has been granted in the case of the Piano Manufacturing Co. against Frank Kaufert. The former action was thrown out because of a faulty summons. Martin Lynch and the Fo ley-Bean Lumber Co. furnish work for the attorneys, the court and possibly a jurj. County Commissioner Norton has two cases on the calendar, one a quo warranto case against O. A. Lun deen who claims to be the clerk of the school district at Cove, but as Mr. Nor ton claims is wrongfully usurping said office. Mr. Norton applied to Judge Searle last month for a writ and it was issued and is returnable next Monday. Mr. Lundeen must show bj what legal authority he is acting as clerk of the district. The other case is an action brought by Mr. Norton against Fay Cra^ ens of the Milaca Times for libel. Northome Townsite. Chas. Keith was in St. Paul last week on business connected with the new townsite of Northome, in which he is interested with some other par ties. The plat of the townsite was placed on file last week, and the Northome real estate maket opened up with a lively demand for business and residence lots in the new town which is the present terminus of the Minne sota & International railroad that is building to Rainy river. Mr. Keith says that there were fifty-four applica tions received for lots as soon as the plat was filed. Northome is sixteen miles from ^Blackduck and promises to become one of the smart towns of northern Minnesota. A New Lodge. A lodge of the Woodmen of the World was organized in Princeton last Monday night. The State deputy came up in the afternoon and was met at the depot by the Princeton band which had been hired for that purpose. It was understood that a delegation of the uniform rank was to accompany the official but they did not come. The candidates for honors fell in and made up a procession that marched up tSwn with a big banner advertising the new order. Fire at Cambridge. Tuesday morning the Williams res taurant at Cambridge caught fire and was totally destroyed. Much of the furniture was saved. Mr. Williams had just made arrangements to take the hotel at Braham. Sam Carew Improving. Sam Carew is slowly recovering from the serious operations which he re cently underwent at the Northwestern and is now able to sit up and read the papers. His brother came over from St. Cload this week to see him.
