Uncle Sam's Land.
About one million acres of desirable
agricultural land will be thrown open
to settlement in Minnesota and the
Dakotas during the coming summer
and fall. This will be the largest sale
of lands in the northwest since the
Sioux reservation was thrown open to
settlement in 1889.
Orders were issued at the interior
department setting June 15 as the date
for the opening of 248,745 acres of
land within the Chippewa reservations
in Minnesota. This land is embraced
in parts of the Boise Fort, Pigeon
River, Red Lake, Winnibigosis and
It will be opened up under the terms
of the Nelson act of 1889 and subject
to entry under the provisions of the
homestead law at the rate of $1.25 an
acre. The lands in question were

rious crews that have operated in Min
nesota during the past several years.

reservation in June is not the same
that was ceded to the government un
der the Steenerson act, recently a*p-
proved by the president.
Farmer Loses His Team.
Oscar Carlson, a new settler in the
vicinity of Tolin, who came from
Meeker county a short time ago, had
the misfortune last Saturday night to
lose his team which got out of the
pasture and Mr. Carlson has been
busy tracing the horses ever since.
He heard that they were seen in the
vicinity of Stanchfield lake about
three o'clock Sunday morning and
were coming toward Princeton. This
is the last heard of the missing team.
Mr. Carlson thinks that perhaps the
horses started for their old home and
he is hoping to have some news from
them soon. One of the horses was
black and the other light bay and they
both had white faces and were branded
on the right shoulder. Anyone
knowing of the team should notify
Mr. Carlson at Tolin P. O., Minn.

on Friday evening of this week to
start the ball rolling in the proper
manner. All the business men and
citizens who are interested should be
at the meeting and give their hearty
support to this celebration.
Worst of All Experiences.
Can anything be worse than to feel
that every minute will be your last?
Such was the experience of Mrs. S. H.
Newson, Decatur, Ala., "For three
years" she writes, '-I endured insuffer
able pain from indigestion, stomach
and bowel trouble. Death seemed in
evitable when doctors and all remedies
failed. At length I was induced to try
Electric Bitters and the result was
miraculous. I improved at once and
now I'm completely recovered." For
liver, kidney, stomach and bowel
troubles Electric Bitters is the only
medicine. Only 50c. [fs guaranteed
