Last Thursday evening the Germany neighborhood was startled o"\er the340 news of the suffocation of John Wil liams in a well on his premises. The en. sudden and unexpected death of the oung man cast a gloom over the entire community. Shortlj after sup per Mr. Williams started to repair a pipe in an open well.

Preparations for the celebration of the Fourth are about completed and all that remains to be done is the looking after a lot of details by the committees, which means a lot of good hard work, however, in order to get all things in readiness. The committees met Mon day night and arranged for the pro gram of the day's exercises and events. The celebration proper will begin at 9 o'clock at which time the Princeton band will give a short concert at the platform at the Citizens bank corner. At 9:30 the colored quartette will fol low the band and hold the boards while the parade is forming at the west side of the court house square. Fred Mc Clellan has consented to act as marshal of the day if he is able to be present, and will look after the formation of the parade and the procession to the plat form where the exercises will occur. The parade will start AS close to 10grandchildren. o'clock as possible, and all who intend to enter should be on hand at court house square at 9:30 o'clock. The line of march will be as follows: Leave court house square and go south at the residence of T. H. Caley as far as the Catholic church, thence east to Main street, north on Main street to Evens hardware store, thence west to west side of court house, thence south to First street and thence east on First or depot street to platform where the ex ercises will occur. The Columbia chorus will "sing "Columbia" after which C. A. Dickey will make a short address. The "Star Spangled Banner" Quartette 2i30 P.

She saw her hus band start down and after he had gone down a few feet she heard him fall, and rushing up to the well discovered that her husband had fallen to the bot tom of the well, a distance of over fifty feet. The alarm was quickly given and neighbors at once ran to the rescue of the unfortunate man, but it was quickly discovered that he was prob ably beyond all hope of ever being rescued alive, as the well was found to be full of deadly gas which had over come Williams the minute he got be low the surface, and one or two in halations of the fatal fumes caused him to relax his hold on the ladder and fall to his death. A lantern was lowered in the well and it went out when down only ten feet from the top. Efforts were at once made to recover the body and' ropes and tackle were secured, but the gas was so deadly that the men could hardly work over the top of the well long enough to get the body out. They remained at their sorrowfnl task, however, and the body was soon brought up. The sudden death of the }Oungxman could hardly be realized by his rela tives and friends, and the shock was a most hard one to bear. Short funeral services were held at xhe hoxne of the deoeasoel a* B:30 A- ftf., Sundaj. after which the funeral pro cession proceeded to Princeton where the funeral ser ices ere held at the German Lutheran church by Rev.ning Stamm.

The formation will be as follows: Officer of the Day. Company G. Princeton Band. Columbia Float. G. A. R. Civic Societies. Floats. Fire Department. Ragamuffins. Citizens in Carriages. The float with "Columbia and herour Children" will be a pretty feature and Mrs. C. A. Caley, Miss Huse and Mrs. J. J. Skahen are working hard to make it a success. While the float is passing the platform en" route north on Main street the chorus will sing "America." It will be seen by the program of shorts and amusements that there will attractions, every hour of tkp. day Avdrntil time for the grand aisplay of fireworks in the evening. The twin city attractions are the best that could be secured and the afternoon and e\ e program ought not to lack for in teresting features.

There as a happy gathering of the Steeves familj at the old home in Ger man} last Sundaj, the occasion being the sixty-sixth birthda\ of Mrs. Aaron Steeves, and her children tendered her a ery happj surprise b} going to the old home during the absence of Mr. and Mrs. Steeves at camp meeting. The} took possession of the house and put everything in preparation for a good time at home. The table was set for supper and when Mr. and Mrs. Steeves returned home it was indeed a great surprise to them to find so many of their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren present. The table was very prettily decorated with white roses and the spread was a tempting one. All sat down and enjoyed themselves at the birthday supper after which the remainder of the day was spent in social pastime, music being furnished by Mr. Jesmer's gramophone. Of the twelve children of Mr. and Mrs. Steeves eight were present, seven of them being married and had their families with them. In the gathering there were nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren present. The family group consisted of thirty-two persons. Mr. and Mrs. Stevens were remembered by their children and their The four who were not present live outside the State and were unable to be present. The Drought Broken. The long dry spell which promised a poor outlook for some of the crops was broken last Tuesday by a good intro ductory shower of a few minutes which started in the middle of the forenoon and the rain came down quite hard for a few mintes, enough to settle the thick dust and to brighten up and refresh the parched grass and crops. There was a heavy fall of rain at supper time and there were frequent showers dur ing the evening, accompanied by some sharp lightning. There was a baby shower Saturday night, but it only lasted a few minutes. MINNIE'S THINKS. ST. PAUL, Minn.. June 30, 1903. Don't put too much faith in political yarns you hear at this stage of the game. This is the summer season, and a good share of the political stories afloat are fish stories only. Most of them are wafted from summer resorts where politicians have been fishing. Because Brother Heatwole and Capt. Whitnej were in the Northern editor ial excursion together rumors of a hard and fast alliance between the fn are current. Because Ra} Jones and Dan Shell went camping together it is hint ed that Nobles county is for Jones for governor. Because Governor Van Sant spoke to Moritz Heim on the streets of St. Paul it is stated that Heim is his candidate for attorae} general. Be cause Robert Jamison is trying to raise bigger potatoes on his farm than John Lind has on his it is asserted that the judge will run for congress next} ear. Now these things are not necessarily true because of the strong circumstan tial evidence. You cannot always judge by appearances. David M. Clough was once seen talking with a bishop, but he did not join the church. $- One hundred automobiles are li censed in St. Paul. Keep away from here if you value your happy life. $- Talk is rife that Dr. Geo. H. Bridg man, the popular president of Hamline University is to be made a bishop in the Methodist church. If this is true the church is to be congratulated. The State of Missouri has paid high tribute to Minnesota by sending to the State superintendent for plans for high school buildings to be used as models in that state. All the states recognize lead in all matters pertaining to education. Word has been received from former State Treasurer A. T. Koerner now in Hamburg. Mr. Koerner says that his good wife and himself had a pleas ant voyage across the water and areAdmired enjoying a delightful visit ki the Fatherland. ~"T^S'vnf nev?? bV" a' Fourth of July so long as there is a boy in America who had a,pa,triotic lather Julius Schmall was in the city to-da} and denies all the stories that are cur rent as to his being a candidate for State offce The supreme court finished the April calendar to-da} and will clean up all decisions b\ August first and tcke a\w months' rest. Some people think a su preme court job a snap. It's not so. The justices are the hardest worked men in Minnesota. The} have to listen to ch'} legal arguments three months at a clip, thiee cases a da}, read the briefs submitted in 200 cases, look up the authorities in each case, rite the opinions and then take the cussing of e\ ery man in the State who disagrees with the opinion. In this connection it might be well to add that an attempt will be made to displace Judges Lo\ ely and Brown, and perhaps Judge Lewis. But I ish to go on record as predict ing that all three of these able and up right jurists will be renominated at the Republican State convention without serious opposition. TAKE YOUR TIME Say, my friend, just take your time Don be in a hurry' If your goin' to run or climb Don't get in a flurry, Hold your hosses just go slow, For there's lots of time you know, You'll lose your breath before you go, If you fret and worry Know'd a feller onct who just Was alius in a stew. Never took a mite of rest And grudged the same to you, Wasted all his strength by ]ing And never did a blessed thing, All I heard him do was sing What he was going to do Taint no use in burnin' out Your axle grease in worry, Nor any sense in fiyin about Forever in a hurry, L'\ noticed men who gets ahead Most ginnerly is them 'ats hed The sense to take^heir time instead Of bein' in a hurry. Bob Jamison is beyond question the slickest manipulator of political wires in the State of Minnesota. Certainly he moves in a mysterious way his wire pulling to perform. If the truth were known it would be found that Bob fur nishes a great deal of the grist for the Globe's political mill, that the esfollowing trangement between men who are bit terly opposed to Gov. Van Sant. is di rectly traceable to the foxy BOTD, that Sammy T. Johnson never makes a move without first consulting Robert, that at Bob's instigation every oil inspector% every boiler inspector and *ev$*y-ap^ pointive officer under the governor is* industriously laboring to promote and** VOLUME XXTII. JSO. 29. cultivate third term sentiment, that the opposition to the renomination of Treasurer Block and Secretary Hanson originated in Bob's fertile brain and is being used as a club to bring those gen tlemen into line for Van Sant. Bob is a dandy in his way, but the boys are getting onto his sinuous curves. rioiseleSS" sp, MINNIE. German 3Iethodist Camp Meeting. The camp meeting of the German Methodists of the Clearwater circuit which was held in the gvo\ near the German Methodist church in Germany beginning last Thursda} and closing Monda} of this week was a great suc cess and was well attended. Sunday as a big da} and there were o^ er 200 people present at the morning and afternoon meetings, and there was con siderable interest manifested in all the meetings. There were several minis ters from Minneapolis and St. Paul present, among them Presiding Elder W. A. Weise of Minneapolis, Rev. C. L. Lenert of Central church, Minne apolis, Rev. J. Brauer, of the North church, Minneapolis, Rev. Preine of the First church, Minneapolis, Rev. Jacob Berger of the First church, St. Paul, Rev. Schultz of Charles City, Iowa, and Rev. Knauf,of Clearwater, the circuit preacher. Rev. Schnitzger of Minneapolis, one of the veteran preach ers of the circuit, was also present. He lived at New Ulm at the time of the Indian outbreak and removed'to this part of the State in 1863 and had charge of the church at Germany for some time. Rev. J. G. Bauer of Min neapolis was also the resident minister at this place for some time, his pastor ate dating back many years ago. The camp meeting closed Monday evening. There was communion and reception of members in the morning, followed by a love feast and quarterly conference, and closing with a service in the evening. The services were mostly in German. Sunday afternoon the services were in English, Rev. Gratz preaching. It is the intention to make the camp meetings an annual occurrence. CAMPBELL BROS.' BIG SHOW. and Praised by Litchfield People A Great Show. Campbell Bros.' circus wjiich will exhibirat Princeton July 9th is highly of other towns where the show has exhibited. The Litchfield Review sajs: "The circus arrived from Granite Falls in the early morning hours and the usual crowd was attracted to the cars tow itness the pro cess of unloading. The tents wrere pitched on the railroad right of way est of the depot and on both sides of the track. One of the best features of the entertainment was watching the progress of the ork "A little after ten o'clock the parade formed and mo^ ed down the principal streets. It as an interesting proces sion and the large crowd which con gregated to watch it was quite agree abh ^surprised. There were two full bands in the parade, besides a steam colliope. The latter was the best of the kind ever heaud here. "The show gave two performances, and both of them were well attended, although the afternoon show had the largest crowd. The performances gave general satisfaction. Ever} thing moved with rapidity and there were no dull waits, every moment being full of in terest. "The Campbell Bros, have a nice clean show and they pride themselves upon allowing no fakirs to follow them.'' One day only at Princeton. Thursday, July 9th. Milaca Benedicts. Last week two of Milaca's prominent citizens became benedicts and will know the life of single blessedness no more. Dr. H. P. Bacon went to Burbank, Minn., and claimed as his bride Miss Phoebe Stauffer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Stauffer of that place. Dr. Bacon wished to surprise his friends at Milaca and on his return he left his bride at Pease -and sent a rig after her, expecting to steal a march on his friends, who however discovered his intentions and the doctor was obliged to face the music. Fred Warren, one of the popular landlords of the Arlington hotel, went to Duluth and was married to Miss Becker of Cloquet. Loaded Down With Fish. Guy Ewing and Ben Grant drove up to Vineland last Saturday and spent Sifhday fishing at White Fish lake, near Vineland. They caught eighty six fish from 10 A. M. to 6 p. M. and When they pulled in the fish were still the trolling hooks with their, mouths open. They caught one pick erel that weighed thirteen pounds. One great big fellow swallowed both hooks. It-made a gulp at one and-then tackled the other which was near by. Among the catch were quite a number of good bass. The lucky fishermen drove^ome Monday "loaded dowruf^ith, fish which they passed around among* their friends.
