dication of rust or blight on the oats.
His potatoes are doing well and indi
cate a yield of 200 bushels per acre.
A copy of the Hillyard (Wash.)
News of Aug. 19th has been received
U&st^d*z-*vi&
by the Union. In it are the follow
ing items of interest to Princeton peo
ple: "Miss Georgia Mudgett of
Princeton, Minn., spent several days
with the Misses Cutler. She returned
Sunday to Five Mile prairie where
she is visiting her old friend, Gladys
Johnson. She expects to start home
about the first of September."
'Truman Cutler and Horace Jones
spent Sunday at Newman lake. They
sa} the water was just right for a
good swim."
M. S. Rutherford has a wee sprig of
a compass-cherry tree in his yard that
is loaded down with fruit this year.
The tree was set out a year ago last
spring with three others he got from
Sampson, of the Mmnetonka Nursery
Co. Early in the season the limbs of
the tree became so thick with fruit that
Mr. Rutherford was obliged to prop
and tie the little tree up to keep the
limbs from breaking oft. The fruit is
now almost ripe and the cherry plums
'-peaches." The fruit has theHeroes.
shape of a cherry and yet the plum in
nature predominates. Ed Whitney
took a picture of the tree Monday.
Carl Carlson and his neighbor who
live on the Benton county border of
the town of Milo were in town last
week and called at the Union office
long enough to say a few good words
about the country. Mr. Carlson is
one of the old settlers in that section
and has been there twenty-one years.
He says that small grain is good and
looks fine. Wheat will go all of
twenty bushels to the acre and there
is very little rust. Oats are a big
crop and will go all of fifty bushels.
There are not a great many poatotes
raised in that vicinity but Mr. Carlson
says that the acreage this year is
about the same as last and that the
crop will run close around 200 bushels
to the acre, though there are indica
tions of rot and it cannot be estimated
to what extent the rot will damage the
crop.
Robert Dunn as Governor.
Every thinking, patriotic American
citizen takes pride in a man who has
risen from the ranks to a commanding
place in the community. And a com
manding place a man cannot attain
unless he proves himself worthy. It
sometimes happens that a man secures
wealth by doubtful or dishonest meth
ods and exercising the power that lies
in nione} buys his way into public
place. But a man who, without
money, can reach the highest places
must have something in him. One
who came to this country a little over
a quarter of a century ago, poor,
friendless and an absolute stranger,
with nothing to assist him except his
bare hands and determination, and
who has risen step by step from an
obscure journeyman printer in a
country village to positions of public
trust must assuredly have merits else
he would have been distanced in the
political race long years ago. It is
true many woi^thy men have been dis
appointed in life, but the man who
has been uniformly successful under
the most trjing circumstances must
have something more than ordinary
in his character to recommend him.
A man who is generally addressed
by his given name has won the con
fidence and the affections of the peo
ple. Ever} body who has the acing
quaintance of Robert Dunn knows him
as '-Bob" and to Bob he cheerfully
responds. There are no red tape
methods about Dunn. If a thing is to
be done and it is right to doit, "Bob"
adopts the shortest as well as the most
effective way of doing it. When as
State auditor no one required a letter
of introduction in order to meet him.
No one was left cooling his heels in an
outer office when he had business to
do with Bob Dunn, merely because
some person of importance had pre
ceeded him and was unnecessarily tak
ing up time. It will be the same when
he occupies the governor's chair.
What this State and what this north
west needs is a man for governor
who, not only knows the wants of
the people, but who is capable and
willing to see to it that its wants are
supplied. No unworthy act of the legis
lature will ever receive his signature
as chief executive. No schemes will
be undertaken or engineered through
the legislature whereby the" people of
the State shall be unjustly dealt with
as long as Dunn is governor, and
while it is true he will not be the leg
islative body, he has had such a broad
experience in the affairs of the State
that he could detect an unjust measure
even when it assumes a meritorious
character, and while he might be only
one man against a body of legislators,
yet it sometimes happens that one is
more than an ordinary majority. In
the language of the street, there will
be no drawing the wool over the eyes
of "Bob" Dunn.Thief River Falls

Rev. A. O. Nelson, president of the

last Monday and met with the con

church, and conferred with them re
garding the purchase of the lot where
the old M. E. church now stands.
The land is valued at $1,000, and there
is some talk of the church buying it,
provided the home mission society
loans the church $1,000 and arrange
ments can be made for the balance by
the church. Rev. Gronberg who has
been with the church for the past ear
or so and who has done some very
hard work in connection with the
church, has accepted the call of the
church at Milaca and will become
their acting pastor the last Sunda} in

different points in this field, but will
not be able to give the Princeton
church much of his time. The matter
of a new pastor for the church will
not be settled until the report of the
home mission society of the district.
Rev. A. A. Dahlberg, pastor of the
Milaca church, will move to Center
ville, Rhode Island. Rev. Gronberg
will continue to reside in Princeton.
A Popular School.
The St. Cloud Business College,
which opens its fall term on September
5th, is one of the most popular and
progressive of the business schools of
the State. Although it is one of only
three years' growth its attendance has
each year been limited only to the ca
pacity of its large rooms and accom
modations, and this year the manage
ment have been compelled to arrange
for additional room to accommodate
the large attendance it will have dur
the winter. This school has theination
reputation of being the most thorough
in its instruction and the most pains
taking with its students. Its grad
uates are in great demand by business
men, and the universal satisfaction
they have always given speaks well
for the management. Those who have
attended this popular institution all
speak highly of its work. Young peo
ple whe contemplate commercial or
shorthand training can do no better
than to attend the St. Cloud Business
College.
Cholera Infantum.
This disease has lost its terrors
since Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy came into gen
eral use. The uniform success which
attends the use of this remedy in all
cases of bowel complaints in children
has made it a favorite wherever its
value has become known. For sale by
