NORTHFIELD NEWS: Farmers should remember that ood roads increase the value of land, lessen the cost of trans portation and pa\ a handsome return on the labor and money expended. THANK ED DY expiessed himself pretty stronyH ajnn the stand-patteis in hi a speech at Dodge Centre on the Fourth Glenwoocl Gopher Mr. Eddy represented the Se\enth district in congress for four con&ecuth terms and he never once expressed himself strongly or mildly as he did at Dodge Centre on the Fourth. LT is said that there was a balance of $6,000 in the treasury of the Republican State Committee at the opening of the speakership fight last inter. There have been heavy drafts on the fund since then but the surveyors general of logs and lumber, oil inspectors, etc., are coming to the rescue in fine shape. QUEER, is it not, that Judge Jami son's retained reporters have not dis covered any good gubernatorial timber in the First congressional district other than the great and only Van Sant? Senator Lord is not eligible, but ex Senator Knatvold and scores of other good men are. Tf an editor is wanted what is the matter with the Hon. D. Sinclair of Winona'? THAT cartoon in the magazine sup plement of the St. Paul Dispatch of the ISth mst. entitled a "Political Confer ence in the Deep Green Woods" was nice but mythical. The cartoon repre sented Hon. Joel P. Heatwole and R. C. Dunn as enjoying an outing in the woods of noithern Minnesota.

But hogs at present prices are profitable animals tor the farmer, who is quite apt to pass up live stock when prices get bflow the tat margin point, and the farmer who sticks to breeding through thick and thin usually is the inner. for when an era oi high pvicPs comes he is right in line for stock for market, while the timid and very impractical farmer starts in with a whoop and b\ the time he gets his money well invest ed the market burns out. and then it is that we hear this kind of a farmer say that the world is going to ruin. HE new observatory for the weather bureau at Duluth will be built of Princeton brick. Briek from the Princeton yards are in demand all over the northern part of the State1, REFERRING to an editorial paragraph in the Northfield News which charged that the State Board of Control was a gigantic political machine, the Elk River Star News remarks: If the insinuation contained in the above that the board of control is oemg turned into a po litical machine, is based on fact it would be well for the public to know it and the News is called upon for further information Nothing could be more disastrous to the board of con trol than to have the public get such a notion in ts head. We are loath to believe that there is any foundation for the News' charges. It would require proof strong as holy writ to convince us that Hon. S. W. Leavitt woaid permit the board to dab ble in politics, and Mr. Leavitt comes mighty near being the Board of Con trol. ON the fifteenth of the present month the city of St. Cloud celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the laying out of the townsite of the place, and one of the founders of the city, John L. Wil son, who is still a resident of St. Cloud, was given a public reception. Mr. Wilson received his friends at a stand erected on the site of the old building he first erected on the claim he took up at St. Cloud. Fifty years ago there were but few settlers between St. Cloud and St. Paul and they were to be found around the stopping places for the stages that made regular trips, and which stopped at Coon Creek, Anoka, Elk River, Big Lake and Big Meadow. Half a century has worked wonders in this section as well as everywhere in the- State and country, but the next fifty years will work still greater won ders. HE Commercial West in an article on "Why Farm Land Values Keep Advancing" says: "It seems a disagree able puzzle with Wall Street how west ern farm lands could keep increasing in value during the very same period in which stocks have been steadily breaking downward. The reason is plain enough. There is no water as yet in western farm lands." The Com mercial West further says that in the northwest lands have shown a great appreciation, yet in many localities they are still cheap. It says: "The land movement in the northwest is an adjustment movement, the same as water seeking its level. There has been too great a disparity in the sell ing values of lands that intrinsically are worth the same. It is only in obe dience to a natural law that the selling value of the cheaper lands in the north west continues to rise." PO PE LEO XIII died last Monday af ternoon and is mourned by the whole civih/ed world regardless 01 sect or creed. Because of his gentleness and goodness, coupled with his sublime spiritual devotion and his purity of character the vorld feels that it has lo+ a great and good friend, which it truly has. While he labored zealously to advance the cause of C11 North Dakota and as far west as Montana, while millions are shipped to the twin cities annually. There is no better quality of common brick manufactured anywhere than right here in Princeton. Princeton is becoming as famous for its brick as its potatoes. +he Catholic church throughout the world he ne\ er forgot to labor for the uplifting of all mankind. He honored and glorified his post of duty, which made Leo XIII a great character in the world's his tor\. It was Leo XIII who made the papal throne more than a place of grand ceremonials, iov he used his exalted position to help make the world beupr. He would have been great without his pontificate, as he was a man of letters, a great scholar and student and a diplomat, but best of all h^ ,is a "rue lover of mankind. THE 1 ecent dismissal of Prof. Tucker as principal of the college of agricul ture, and the unfavorable comment this action on the part of the regents has occasioned, is an unfortunate inci dent, and the action of the board of re gents does not seem to have been re ceived with the hearty approval of many of the students of the school of agriculture as well as those who were tormerlv students at the college and ho speak in very high terms of Prof. Tucker's work. The whys and where fore of Prof. Tucker's dismissal have ne- er been fully explained to the satis faction of many of those who regret to see any friction of this nature in a school which has done so much for the agricultural interests of the State. The board of regents must surely have been justified in the action they have taken, but they should take the public into their confidence. Let us have all our State institutions like Caesar's wife above suspicion. The inner man is often an outside consideration. Some peoples' faces are veritable puzzle pictures.

Many a man's lot is not a happy one, and many a man's neighbor's lot does not make man's lot a happy one, espec ially if there is a domestic menagerie or two in the back yard, and the fence is not in good order. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. Scissored from Hon. A. N. Dare's Sherburne County Star-News. Nobody enjoys a picnic more than Gov. Van Sant, and nobody attends more of them. When it comes to discussing where campaign funds come from, the least said the better. If the D. M. Munn candidacy tor Senator Clapp's seat is on the same basis as his appointment to fight the merger, how much had it ought to be? Who are the real friends of the peo ple against the corporations is a ques tion that is causing considerable dis cussion, and there is a disposition to in voke the records to show where we are at. That's the sturt. Let us know who is who and what is what. As old Abe Lincoln once said, you can fool the people part of the time but you cannot fool them all the time, or words to that effect. What is the use of having pub lic ser\ ants that, are not the real thing. Rev. Jas.

Music was furnished by Mrs. Claire A. Caley and Mrs. W. B. Rich ards. There were about forty present and the reception was a most pleasant social event. Pass, the Honors Around. The Princeton UNION suggests that Senators Nelson and Clapp are good men, but there are others, and that bouncing political honors by sending them to the national Republican con vention is not good policy. All of which is cordially endorsed by this pa per. There is altogether too much toadying going on. Those holding such positions have plenty of work if they will work.Cannon Falls Beacon.
