Authorities don't agree as to the cause of colds." Some now
claim that microbes are responsible. Doesn't matter much,
you can't dodge the cause: it is the results that must be wor
ried about. We know that colds cause destruction of tissue:
that waste products accumulate in the system and that they
are largely expelled through the lungs. When the process is
retarded we have a cough, which is the warning of lung danger.
Jack's White Pine Expectorant
is the best remedy because it hastens the expulsion of waste
matter. Some cough cures dry up a cough, this loosens it.
It cures thoroughly because it goes to the source of the trouble.
Price 25 and 50 cents.
Money back if you want it.

County Commissioners Reply to Untutored
Printed and Publisher.
"Whereas,* The Princeton News has
I published in its columns a drastic ar-
J*r_ ticle criticising this Board of County
for rejecting his offer
to do the county printing, and for
awarding the same to the Princeton
i n, and suggesting that the tax
payers of the county will want to know
how we. as such commissioners, ex
cuse our action,
Now Therefore, This statement is
for the purpose of advising such tax
payers of our reasons for such action:
Under the law it is our duty, in des
gnating a paper to do the county
printing, to take into consideration
the character and value of such paper
as a medium for getting the matter to
be published before the tax-payers of
the county. The law further expressly
provides that we shall not be bound
by any offer, but may reject any or
all offers filed or presented, if in our
judgment the public interest so re
quires, and that we may thereupon
designate a paper without regard to
any rejected offer or offers.
In making our decision we were
governed by two main considerations:
First: the circulation of the papers
offering to do the work and second,
the equipment and ability of such pa
pers to do the work properly, and
with exact accuracy, and in strict
compliance with the law.
On the first proposition the Prince
ton Union offered to publish the
county printing in its own columns
and also in the columns of the Milaca
Times, giving a combined circulation
of more than three thousand, and
further offered to furnish a duplicate
of such printing, in supplement form
to be used by the Mille Lacs Pioneer,
if it so desired, thus, still further in
creasing such circulation. On the
other hand the circulation offered by
the Princeton News only ranged from
three hundred to three hundred and
fifty On the second point, past ex
perience has demonstrated beyond a
doubt that the Princeton Union could
and would publish the matter with
strict accuracy, and in strict compli
ance with the law.
In considering the Princeton News
we could feel no such assurance, in
deed the very article criticising our
action would seem to offer ample just
ification for our decision, for the last
paragraph alone of such article con
tains five typographical errors, either
of omitting a letter or inserting a
wrong letter, which if they had oc
curred in five descriptions of the tax
list would have invalidated the tax
judgment, as to such descriptions.
We did not feel justified, on either
of{Jh grounds named, in considering
the offer of the Princeton News. For
it is of far greater importance to the
tax-payers of the county that the
work be done with exact accuracy,
and that the matter reach the greatest
possible number of tax-payers, than
that the printing of such matter should
be done cheaply.
Upon these reasons and considera
tions we based our action.

Pierson Boys Fined.
The Pierson boys, Swan and Enoch,
who were arrested last week charged
with the injury to the little Riebe boy
in Bogus Brook, were given a hear
ing before justice Chadbourne last
Thursday. Many witnesses were pres
ent, and while the boys admitted
shooting their rifles, at the time the
Riebe and other boys were on the
river, they disclaimed any intention
of shooting at the boys or towards
them, knowingly. They said they
were twenty-five yards away from the
boys when the rifles were fired, and
that the ball from the rifle held by
Swan probably struck the ice andmitter
glanced, striking the Riebe boy.
About all that could be made out of
the case was a common misdemeanor,
and the justice fined Swan Pierson $20
and Enoch $10.
There was some anxiety about pay
ing the Riebe boy's hospital and doc
tor's expenses on the part of the boys,
and they desired to know if the fines
could not apply on such expenses, but
as this would require a special act of
the legislature, the fines could not be
thus appropriated.
Notice to Subscribers.
The subscription price of the
Union is $1.00 per year in advance.
When subscriptions are not paid in
advance, during the first three months
atfer becoming due, twenty-five per
cent will be added to the subscription
price. Commence the New Year right
by paying your subscription for the
year 1905 now. The i on is cer
tainly well worth $1.00 per year. The
Union stands on its own merits and
will not club with any other newspa
per. The Union has to-day double
the circulation of all the other news
papers published in Mille Lacs county.
