PRICETOJJS AHEAD Sunday's Game Falls to The Local Club, the Score Being Nine In its Favor. The Boys Get down to Business and Play a Game With Very Few Errors. The Minneapolis Grays went down to defeat in Sunday's game, the home club having pulled itself together in something like its old-time shape. It has played good ball all the season, but in several of its games some un lucky error has caused its defeat. Four errors are marked against it in this game, but they were not made at critical times when scores could be made on them. As in every game played this season, Woods led in the number of men struck out, having nine to his credit to the down river twirler five. He pictehed one wild ball, and so did the pitcher for the Grays. The Grajs have to answer for eight errors. Woods and Carlson each hit the ball for two bases. The down river aggregation was out classed in almost every particular and while the game was a good one it was not close enough to elicit the wild en thusiasm that is generally manifest among the lovers of the game. Fol lowing is the score. Princeton Smith rf Peteison Carlson, lb Woods Burrell Jib Holt 3b Slayback, cf Manska, ss Cordmer, If Totals Grays- Johnson.

H. Rines. When his name on the list was reached he was found to be assessed for $200 worth of propertj. The board thought he was worth con siderable more than that, so concluded to raise the assessment to-$1.000. Ac cording to the provisions of law Mr. Rines was notified to appear before the board to '-show cause if any there be" why he should not be pronounced guilty of owning that much property. In answer to the summons Mr. Rines appeared at the office of the recorder, puffing from the exercise of climbing the stairs, and as he says, had his remaining breath knocked out of him by the announcement of the raise. All protestations were useless on his part and the ruthless board allowed the figures to remain which accuse our worthy townsman of owning within the village limits one thousand dol lars' worth of personal property. As usual there are claims that some have escaped just taxation, but the judg ment of the board was supreme for the time and the matter is up to the countj commissioners. Child Lost at Sandstone. On Thursdaj, June 22, a two-and-a- half ear old son of Martin Benson, a farmer Ihing six miles from Sand stone wandered away from the house and hunting parties have not been able to find an/ trace of him. Three hundred citizens of Sandstone joined in the search. The Duluth News Tri bune of the 24th notes the failure to find the child and sa\s: "Bloodhounds owned by the Supe rior police department were brought there on the train and turned loose at daj break. Given the scent of the lost child's clothing, they worked for hours in the woods but accomplished little or nothing. Heavy rains falling last night and early this morning washed out the barefooted child's tracks and the dogs were unable to follow his trail. All the searchers have returned to town leaving the heartbroken settlers alone in their sor row. "Many of the foremost citizens openly express the opinion that the lost child has been either kidnapped or murdered, and arrangements are be ing perfected tonight to start workers on new clues found this afternoon, and which tend toward the belief that the child has been foully dealt with. Al though bears and wolves are numer ous in the district where the child is lost old hunters and trappers scout th#dea that the little tot has been de vo: by wild beasts. Only wolves wit young will attack human beings 'is time of year. Tracks of bears been seen in the vicinity of Ben soi home but this is not unusual fudge Parish and Postmaster a went to the settlement this after noob to interview neighbors who have expressed open enmity for the Benson family and have not returned up to a late hour tonight. These neighbors refused to give the searching parties any information, although tracks of the missing child could be traced to a point within a few rods of their house. The bloodhounds lost the child's trail at this same point.'' Gu The June Settlement.

In order that people may know the location of fires in the village a sys tem of whistles has been formulated by the village council and fire depart ment, as follows: For fires south of First street, commonly called Depot street, the whistle will give the fire screech and then one blast of the reg ular whistle. For fires north of First street the fire screech will be followed by two blasts of the regular whistle. For fires on the north side of the river the fire screech will be followed by three blasts of the regular whistle. As every run made by the fire depart ment is expensive people are requested to use judgment in turning in alarms. The burning out of a chimney with no danger to the building should not cause an alarm to be sent in. was formerliy employed, at the Arling ton hotel here, was the victim of a ter rible accident at Hibbing, Monday THE MILITIA FIGHTS Two Companies are Captured and the Home Boys of Show Princeton's Mettle.

The march which was made by com panies C, A and I from Camp Lakeview last Friday furnished a great amount of work and amusement which was not down on the program when the boys started out. The road taken led in a westerly direction up one of the numerous "coolies" which lead up between the hills from lower plateau to the level country. These coolies are from four to six miles in length and are all up hill in going out. The four companies marched about ten miles and established camp Gerlach, where they stayed all night. Before the return march on Saturday the officers planned a sham battle and companies A and I were sent ahead under command of Major Resche, their part being to form an ambush and capture companies and as they went down the road. Capt. Little, as the ranking officer, had com mand of companies and and the officers of the two companies held a council of war in which it was decided to carry the war into Africa and in stead of marching tamely down to captivity to turn the tables and cap ture the ambushed troops. Scouts were sent out who located the enemy in the brush at the side of the road under the hills. A decoy squad was sent along the road while the main force followed the crest of the hills until they were enabled to look down on the enemy whose whole attention was occupied in watching the decoy squad. When all was ready orders were issued to charge and down the hill went and G, through brush, over stones and gullies, through sticky mud and pools of water all the time keeping up a rapid fire of muskets, and arriving immediately in the rear of the ambush before the doughty soldiers in the brush were aware of it. Major Resche with company A and of I were captured, but part ofCOI the latter saved themselves by ignominious flight. The prisoners were compelled to join in the march back to camp through the rain and sticky mud, where all arrived in a condition to lead an ob server to readily believe a real battle might have been fought. The ma neuver was greatly enjoyed by all, but company G, our own home, militia boys feel particularly jubilant over being the heroes of the battle. Company Shoots Well. Company made some excellent scores in rifle practice at Camp Lake view and won second place among companies of the Third regiment, company of Anoka, being first with a total score of 764. In regular practice the following qualified as marksmen with a score of 98 or more: Capt. Caley, 109: Sergt. Boyn, 121 Corp. Mergel, 108: Corp. Edmison, 100: Corp. Reissig, 120: Corp.

The following qualified as sharp shooters, a total of 235 being neces sary Sergt. Sellhorn. 248: Sergt. Marshall, 266: Privates: Boyn, 257 E. Harrington, 259: Mahoney. 240. In the team shoot which won for it second place, the score was as fol lows: Sergt. Boyn, 98: Sergt. Sell horn, 107: Sergt. Marshall, 119: Corp. Reissig, 92: Privates: Boyn, 109: E. Harrington, 97: Mahoney, 115. The scores show that there is good ma terial in the company and there is a good prospect for its winning first place next time. Ditch umber Two. On Friday, June 23, the full board of county commissioners met to pass judgment on digging ditch number two in Mille Lacs county. The survey and estimate were accepted and the ditch ordered.

It opens into the river in the S% of section 34, Bogus Brook. Branch A starts in the NE*4 of sec tion six, Princeton and runs in a northeasterly direction to a point in the NW34 of section 33, Bogus Brook, then in a southeasterly direction to a point in the SE^ of section 33 where it joins the main ditch. It touches the lands of Louis Gelinus and Ferdinand Huber in Princeton and John L. Mourning, Loren Peterson, Henry Henrickson, Chas. Keith, I. S. Mud gett, estate, P. A. Olander, Henry Johnson, C. Gouldberg, Isodore Zim ple and Mary Vose in Bogus Brook. Branch starts on north section line at corners of sections 32 and 33, Bogus Brook and runs south on sec tion line one-half mile and opens into branch A. It touches lands of M. E. Thorring, Peter Jensen, I. S. Mud gett estate, and Henry Johnson. The main ditch and branch A are eight feet wide at their widest parts. The main ditch is 11.950 feet long, branch A 12,806.5 feet and branch 2,685 feet. a total of 27,441.5 feet or a little more than four miles. The amount of dirt to be removed is 19,524.35 cubic yards and the cost is estimated at $3,476.13. Sidewalks are not for Bicycles. Inhabitants of Princeton are not alone in thinking that the sidewalks are for pedestrians and that bicycles and all other wheeled vehicles with the exception of baby carriages should be barred. It is not pleasant to hear behind you a bike bell and to expect to be run over if you do not imme diately clear the way. The Mankato Free Press gives the following ac count of an occurrence in that city: "Some reckless bicyclist proved himself to be a coward as well as a brute, while riding on Byron street last evening before dark. In front of the Torrey store he ran into a lady, knocked her down and tore her dress. Instead of dismounting, as any gen tleman would have done, to inquire whether she was hurt, and to assist her if necessary, and make proper apoligies and amends, he simply rod"!'eT right on, fearf that his identityr might be discovered, and paying no attention when she calle out, wishing^ to know his hameB. I|| IWiri"lli The Crops. Reports from wheat sections in Min nesota and neighboring states show wheat to be in good condition and with the dryer weather which it is rea sonable to expect there is a promising outlook. The average annual precip itation in Minnesota is about forty five inches and during May and June we had nine inches. A dryer spell is due and will probably come. In this State and Wisconsin the potato crop has already been damaged on clay soil by the rotting of the seed in the ground, but on sandy soil there is no apparent damage except in isolated cases where the land is low and with out drainage. Experience has taught us that continued wet weather through the growing season is conduche to earlj appearance of blight, but in Minnesota the crop is probably not far enough advanced to have been affected yet. Early planted potatoes do not rot as much as those planted late. Corn is backward in all sec tions and a continuation of the cool weather we have been having will not make it "knee high by the Fourth of Julv." Mark's July Sale. The Mark Horse company sale which will be held in Princeton on Saturday, July 1st will be the equal of any held on previous dates. Especial care has been exercised in selecting the horses which will be offered at this sale and they are as fine a lot of western horses as can be secured. The native horses will be fully up to the standard and any one wishing a broken or unbroken horse should attend and make a pur chase for cash or on terms to suit. Besides horses there will be offered a big line of buggies, wagons, harness and many other things of the same kind usually offered at these sales. Remember that this will be a sale in every sense of the word. The highest bidder takes the stock. Farmers hav ing anything of whatever nature to sell should bring it in and Mark will sell it. The sale will be held regard less of the weather. Remember there will be two hundred head of western and native horses for you to choose from. The Young Peoples' Musical. The musical given by the young people at the Methodist church last Friday evening was a very pleasant occasion, all participants rendering their parts nicely. Mrs. H. C. Cooney's vocal solo "Sweetheart" was highly appreciated and she an swered an encore with "In the Shade of the Apple Tree." Mrs. C. A. Caley was on the program for a solo, but was unable to be present.
