The hunting season opened on the
first with a great stir and commotion
among the Princeton nimrods, many of
whom started out the night before and
got in the game fields early. Others
got away before the law released them
and there are some who make a busi
ness of doing this every year, and who
have gone uncaught and unpunished so
long they have become very bold.
Very few hunters report any kind of
success and chickens are scarce.
Last Monday Sergeant Johnson, Cor
poral Mergel, and privates Sellhorn,
Taylor and Mahoney, qualified marks
men of Co. G, went to Duluth to par
ticipate in the preliminary State team
shoot in which all marksmen of the

highest of which qualify for the
State team shoot at Lake City Septem
ber 21st. A State team is made up
from those making the highest scores
at Lake City which will compete in the
inter-state team shoot between Illinois,
Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota for the
Washburn trophy, a handsome gold
Zenith Plaster.
For the past year or so I have been
advertising the celebrated Zenith plas
ter, for which I am sole and only
authorized agent in Princeton. I took
this agency for Zenith and have
brought this plaster to the front in
this section, because I "realized I had a
good artiele and have not been afraid
to advertise it as such. Zenith is the
safest and most durable plaster sold to
day and builders all realize this fact.
This is why my competitors advertise
Zenith, and sell a cheap substitute, for
no other dealers in Princeton have the
genuine Zenith plaster to sell, because
they can't get it to sell. Zenith plaster
has the words "Zenith" printed in
large letters on every sack, and re
member that I am the only authorized
agent for Zenith in Princeton.
