PRINCETON. ^wirt-Js NEW GRAffi ARRIVES. New Rye and Wheat Arrive on the Market==First Wheat Pinched and Very Light. One of Abe Steeves's Teams Makes a Wild Run Six Miles in the Country. The harvest in this section is well on, much of the grain in many places having been cut and thrashed, and new rye and wheat made their appear ance on the market during- the last week. Th first r} came in last Fri day and J. Wikeen bought it for the St. Anthonj & Dakota Elevator Co., paying fort} -one cents for the) grain. The grain was of very good quality. The first lot of new wheat arrived last Monday, being hauled in from Germany. I twas pinched and shrunk en and very light. I was sold at sev enty cents. Th wheat crop as a whole will not average up very well and in many places has been badly affected by chinch bug's. The potato market has not opened up et, because there are so few potatoes that are ripe as yet. Rines & Co. be gan buying- over ten days ago, but so far ery few potatoes have arrived. The early crop is late, and earl} po tatoes will not be moving- very freely until two weeks or so yet. A Elk River and Anoka quite a few potatoes are being- loaded, but those points are much earlier markets than Princeton. A few potatoes are being hauled in at Bethel and Isanti. Last week the first potatoes arrived at Isanti and forty cents was paid. Buyers stated that if they could get a car load a day they could pay fifty cents a bushel, but this can be demonstrated when the potatoes begin arriving in that quantity. Kvciting Runaway. A team of horses belonging to Abe Stee\ es, and which were being driven by Fred Holm, furnished quite a sensa tion esterda^ just afte^ dinner. Fred had stopped at the postoffice for histhe mail, and 'while inside the'team be came flightened and made a dash onto the sidewalk in front of Ludden's store, tearing awaj one of the hind wheels, in which not a spoke was left. They ploughed along by the UNION office walk and then hit the road, starting down toward the depot at a furious rate. The team tinned at Mr. Rines' residence and proceeded cat toward the cemetei-} and struck west on the Greenbush road. They dumped the box and top near the cemetery and con tinued on their mad flight, not stopping until the} had ran six miles north of town. The team received only a few scratches. Prairie Chicken Season. The open season for prairie chickens, snipe, pinnated, white-breasted or shai-p-tailed grouse, woodcock, upland plover and golden plover will begin September 1st, on which day every hunter in Minnesota will take his gun and dog, if he is fortunate enough to possess one, and invade the secluded domain of the prairie chicken. I is said that chickens are quite plentiful in some parts of the State. In the vicinity of Princeton the birds are not as plentiful as sportsmen wish. Th wet weather has not been good for the hatching of the birds and then there has been the usual amount of pot hunt ing by those who have no respect for the law. There will be a wild on slaught for a few days, during which time the most fortunate sportsmen will succeed in securing a few birds, and then what remain will be so wild that they will be hard to get. Wild ducks, wild geese and other acquatic fowl may be destroyed, according to statute, betw een Sept. 1 and Nov. 30. Quail, partridge, ruffled grouse or pheasant will he without legal protection from Oct. 15 to Dec. 15. Mark's September Sale. The E. Mark Live Stock Co. is mak ing big preparations for its September sale. The stock ards of this company are now the largest and best stock yards in the State, excepting of course the South St. Paul and Minnesota Transfer and New Brighton. With the yards rearranged and remodeled, 10,000 head of stock can be handled here. The sale which will be held Septem ber 5th will be the largest ever held in Princeton, and a big lot of native and western horses, and live stock of all descriptions will be offered at this sale. A large tent 100 feet square will be erected and the sale will go on with no interruption on account of the weather. The live stock business which Mr. Mark started in Princeton ten years ago has grown at a rapid rate until now it reaches out all over northern Minne sota. A the present time Mr. Mark has several hundred head of horses be ing sold at different points in the '^^^^d^^^kik^ism^^^^tM^^ lyy sjUfldMUtifcMaMMiMpi^i^iritti^MifciM ^^%5-^v 1VV PRINCETON UNIO PBINCETON,MILLE LACS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 1903. northern part of the State.

Three cars of good western horses will arrive this week for Princeton, and fresh consignments are arriving about every week. The sale at Princeton September 5th will be a big one and will draw a large crowd. Real Estate Transfers.

Campbell pur chased a controlling interest in the Commercial hotel and he is now the active manager of that popular tavern. Mr. Campbell is one of the best hotel men in the Northwest, and years ago he made the old American House fa mous in northern Minnesota. Under the management of Mr. King Burrell the Commercial was conducted in such a manner as to lea\ little room for im provement, but we predict that the ex cellent reputation of the house will be more than maintained by Mr. Camp bell. Messrs. Rines, Burrell, Caley and Dunn still retain an interest in the hotel, and will co-operate heartily with Mr. Campbell in hit, efforts to make Commercial as famous as the old American House v, as in its da}. i A Beautiful Catalogue. Of all the school catalogues that we hxuvsfeeen, the one just received from the Mankato Commercial College is the most elaborate and beautiful. It is a 64-page book printed on elegant paper and profuseh illustrated with Aiews of the school building and rooms and also photographs of graduates. It contains such informal ion as will be of interest to }Oung neople who expect to attend a bUbine-= college. You should get one of these catalogues before making jour decision where to go. Th catalogue will be sent tree. Write Mankato Commercial College. Monkato, Minn. A. Foreston Yi edcling. Last Sundaj at high noon occurred the marriage of Miss Josie Neumann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. Neumann to Mr. Charles Schwartz. There were about twenty relatives and friends present to witness the cere mom which was performed by Rev.no Fr. Levings. The ceremony was per formed at the residence of the bride's parents: George Schwartz, a brother of the groom acted as best man, while Miss EA a Neuman accom panied the bride. The newly married couple will begin housekeeping on Mr. Schwartz's farm near Foreston. New Billiard Parlors. E. W Langer has opened his billiard and pool parlor in the building form erl} occupied by the Nachbar restauiv ant, and lovers of billiards and pool have already begun to patronize the parlor very liberally. Mr. Langer has installed two pool and one billiard table. They are the latest stj le and finish, made of oak with large square legs, and are as fine tables as are to be found in any of the city billiard parlors Soft drinks of all kinds and cigars and tobaccos are kept on hand. Foxy To Lowry. The reading public may be led to in quire why the solicitude of the St. Paul Dispatch over the future of Senator Clapp, whereas that paper supported Tom Lowry when Clapp was chosen. The claim of the Dispatch that a tri umvirate has been formed to do up the State by Ji Hill. Bob Dunn and Heat wole. is simply, n doubt, a blind to cover up the plans of the foxy Tom Lowry. who wants to go to the senate. Long Prairie Leader. German Lutheran Mission Services. The annual mission service of the German Lutheran church will be held at the farm of Henry Holthus next Sunday at 10 A. M. and 3 P. M., if the weather permits. If the weather is bad the mission services will be held at the church. Rev. Ed. Schlagden haufen of Round Grove, McLeod county, will preach in the morning and Rev. E. Ah of Duluth, will preach in the afternoon. MINNIE'S THINKS. ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug. 25, 1903. At last after much delay the St. Paul Carnival association announces its net results. Though it took in $32,000 in two weeks it is in debt $500 and the public baths get nothing. A the end of the first week the committee said that if they took in $25,000 the baths would get $500 as all expenses were paid by the first week's show. When it is all over it is discovered that the expenses were $33,000 instead of $19,000 as estimated. Isn't that lovely finan ceering? Fortunately the fiasco puts an end to all such events in the future and that is worth something. Still it would be interesting to know what be came of that $32,000 in two weeks. .5. J. .J. The governor and his appointees have started forth on a trip of 'inspec tion" to the State institutions. Messrs. Johnson, Olsen et al. are developing a ery sudden interest in our institutions as the expiration of their terms draw near. $- $- Librarian Nelson admits that C. A. Smith has turned down the efforts of his friends to get him into the guber natorial fight. Ye gods, the Dispatch says it will support Senator Clapp. What new game is Tom Lowry up to nowV 5* J* Marcus D. Munn confides to a friend that he has been hampered in the merger suit by his associate counsel. The great man should certainly be allowed free rein. *J J Governor Van Sant isn't counting on Dar Reese or Fred Schiffman for par ticularly enthusiastic support next year. j. .j. Gus Widdell's boom for congress seems to have collided with a water wagon somewhere and needs to becostuming hung out in the sun to dry. $- The State prison twine plant has made a net profit of half a million dol lars since its inauguration. Ed Young t,eems to have put a tem porary stopper in the Dispatch cam paign of abuse. Geo. Matchen hasn't been at the State capitol for three days. Can it be that the third term boom is taking a needed rest? The national reunion of the arm} of the Philippines will be held here next week and it will be one of the greatest conventions of the ear. It will be worth while being in St. Paul then. $- Minneapolis milkmen have organized and will sell but sixteen quarts for a dollar. Th worst of it is that the higher price is no guarantee against water. J* The new State capitol is getting on well toward completion. There seems good reason why the next legisla ture cannot meet there. Three hun dred men are working daily on the building. If every citizen of Minne sota could go through this magnificent building there would be no kick on the four and one-half million dollars it is to cost. I is worth every cent of it and will be a credit to Minnesota for a century to come. *2* *5* The country press does not take kindly to the St. Paul Dispatch's at tempt to scare the people of the State by its wild, weird yarn about the mer ger combine. 5* A. T. Koerner is back from Europe. He says the home-coming was the best part of his trip. Mr. Koerner while impressed with the great progress made in Germany says the United States is the only place for a man to live. In the old countries a mechanic gets $5 a week and a laborer about $2.75 a week and yet think themselves fortunate. In Germany he saw women yoked up with cows at work in the fields. The foreigners say that Ameri cans make too much of their women. .5. .$. .j Are you coming to the State fair? You can't afford to miss it. There has as yet been no overwhelm ing rush on the part of the people to give the Republican party platform into the keeping of Messrs. Lowry and Munn. The organized boiler-inspectors re port a dullness in politicsthat is the kind which interests Judge Jamison. 4. 4. In view of the recent attitude of Twin City papers anent the next polit ical campaign may it not be in order to suggest that the people of Minnesota are competent to manage their own polities without all this superfluous Vr*' i *&&>- i^lL^ A i r-C h& Jr ^-.^,3-. VOLUME XXVII. NO. 3^ assistance by Twin City journals? Isri't it about time to allow a free citizen to become a candidate for office without at once assailing his honesty, accusing him of every crime, and spattering his fair name with mud? Surely the peo ple can be trusted to decide on their own candidate for public office and surely a man may have honest polit ical ambitions without being owned by a corporation. When a public journal says the State is in danger of being be trayed by any man it is expressing its lack of confidence in the people: it's doubt of the people's honesty and abil ity. Any man selected by the people for public office without outside inter ference will not wreck the State. couldn't if he would and he wouldn't if he could. And a public officer is bound by laws which he cannot violate. Th State is never going to be ruined by a nj man or set of men. Such talk in a paper presumes the public to be a mass of idiots. Such talk is an insult to honest people. WPINESOTA SOCIETY. Dr. Armitage Ha Another Auto. Dr. Armitage has secured another auto, and he now goes o\ er the roads in a -'Rambler." Th auto was brought up from Minneapolis last week and after the doctor looked itrover and tried it he concluded to dispose of his road alarmer and get an auto that would take him over the roads in time to see a new-born babe before it got started to the kindergarten. Dr. Armitage and Joe made a trip to Foreston last Sunday and the auto proved a veritable '-rambler,'' making the trip in fine stj le. Th machine is very speedy, and the doctor sajs he can now hold his own with the best of them. Aug Rines went along on the trip with his auto and discovered that the red-nosed Rambler was capable of running very fast. Claggett's Colts Defeated. The ball game last Sunday between the Bi Lake and Princeton teams proved a veritable wind storm to the Princeton team, the score standing 12 to 1 when the game was finished. Manager Claggett's colts were new in harness and it was not expected that they would be able to make much of a showing in their first game. Janikula pitched and Cravens looked after affairs behind the plate. Clarence Hill um pired the game. Th home team is raw yet, but when it becomes seasoned, and properly placed some good work may be expected of it. They Are All Busy These Days. Unhearalded, the State superintend ent of public instruction, traveling incog under the name of J. W Olsen, made a flying visit through the north western part of the State, even staging seventy-five miles to reach Roseau. The query arises, as to the object of the State house official's visit. I cer tainly has more significance than the little hunting trip in which Bob and Joe were the prominent factors. Is "Samervel" fixing up the pins for a third term.Roseau Times. Chicago Potat Market. CHICAGO, Aug 25. Tradin was moderate and the market rather easy. Arrivals from northwest smaller and the supply of home-grown was also re duced. Minnesotas are more mature and riper than Wisconsin or Michigan and brought a premium. Sales includ ed one car Minnesotas at 65c: one car Wisconsin at 62c and one car same at 60c: one car Wisconsin mixed, a little green, 58c: four cars Michigan at 63c. What Brand of Booze? The St. Paul Dispatch, which is given to "seeing things," as some one has said, recently saw a vision of an unholy combination between Ji Hill, Bob Dunn and Joel Heatwole. Now wouldn't that freeze you? What brand of booze does Mr. Thompson use?Le Sueur Sentinel. S^a^l*&wfii v^L&^d.tnhJ^^A>, 2 ^^J&St&!m$k&& mmm a3^&ttJgg&- sS3&t-gWu3'i 9 MINNIE. Dramatic Announcement. 'At Valley Forge" under the man agement of James W. Evans and Wil lis Dunlap is billed to appear at the Princeton opera house, Friday. Sept. 4th. Few productions in recent years have Avon the deserved success ac corded this play. I is one of historic interest and its scenes are laid in and around Old Valley Forge and Trenton during the close of the revolution. As a result the interest never flags and everyone follows the action of the piece with attention and eagerness until the curtain finally falls upon the last act. The cleverness of the company, whether collectively or individually considered, of course adds to the attractiveness of the performance. Miss Ida Root Gor don assumes the stellar role, and it must be acknowledged the leading character is in especially competent hands, while the balance of the cast is equally strong. The scenic embellish ment is on a magnificent scale, and the elaborate in detail. Th production will be one of the dramatic treats of the season.
