The potato crop at Frazee is almost
a failure, especially in low land. Po

D. G. Robinson, formerly of Man

head, signing the name of Oliver
Kragnes, a prominent farmer. He
used it to raise a loan of $60 from A.

note and found it was a forgery.
Robinson has been arrested. He was
convicted recently of a similar offense
at Mankato and paroled.

nothing to prevent cattle getting on
the track in the district where he
lived. The jury deliberated a short

full amount.

after 11 o'clock Friday night by a
stranger to whom the operator was

key, and the operator stopped and
asked what he wanted. As he turned
from the table the stranger struck
him down with an iron bar, rendering
him senseless. The robber then went

money drawer, obtaining $15 in cash.
He then rushed out and escaped.
'The tmnd Muddle in Ireland.
The English government finds that
must dig up many more millions
it originally agreed to in order to
the Irish peasants to become land
owners and with that more contented
subjects. Originally the famous land
purchase act provided that not more
than $25,000,000 annually should be
called for to help the peasants buy
their leased holdings outright from the
landowners. Recently the treasury
announced its willingness to add $10,-
000,000 to the fund for the current
year and put up $50,000,000 instead of
the stipulated $25,000,000 in 1906.
Since the purchase act became opera
tive eighteen months ago applications
for sale and purchase have been made
which call for a total advance by the
government in the interests of the
peasants of $150,000,000, and prelim
inary agreements have been made by
which the owners have lost control of
their lands and been out of pocket by
the transaction. When a peasant bar
gains for land under the purchase act
he stops paying rent and agrees to pay
per cent interest on the purchase
price. Often the owner is himself pay
ing 4, 5 or 6 per cent on the mortgages
with which his land is loaded. Mean
while the peasant does not really be
come proprietor until the full purchase
price is paid, and for this he looks to
the government. Both classes involved
have votes, and the desire, for home
rule in Ireland is strong,among the

American Regard For Russia.
The Russians who came over to the'
peace conference took it as a grievance
that their country should be judged
here by the reports of revolt and mas
sacre coining from the land of the
czar. There is nothing but sympathy
and good feeling among Americans to
ward real Russia, the great mass of
Russian people. But for the Russian
bureaucracy Americans have nothing
short of hearty contempt. It has proved
again and again its unfitness to con
trol the destinies of a mighty people.
Those Russians who have had the
courage to speak out have formed
American opinion upon the evils that,
afflict that land. And Russian institu
tions themselves furnish the most con
vincing testimony which reaches the
mass of Americans. It is not a land of
liberty, and human progress there is
impossible. American freedom and
progress were won with the bayonet
after a struggle of unparalleled fierce
ness and hardship for the Revolution
ists. When real Russia rises the sons
of Columbia will be the foremost of all
the peoples of the earth to extend the
hand of sympathy and wish the pa
triots godspeed.
"Clearing of the Canal Fog.
Doubt and confusion as to what the
Panama canal can be and in the na
ture of things will be have passed away,
and it is possible to estimate approxi
mately the time and the money re
quired to put the enterprise through.
A practical working plan is in the
hands of the canal commissioners.
In the plan under consideration it is
suggested that a canal suitable for
present purposes can be completed in
four years and, without disturbing the
navigation, changed to a sea level ca
nal, of larger tonnage capacity in twen
ty years. In fact, after the change to
a sea level canal there will be no limit
of capacity. The scheme has the merit
of providing for the present with an
eye to the future.
The emptiness of a life given up to
mere pleasure is once more emphasized
by the self destruction of one of New
York's golden butterflies, William R.
Travers. Travers inherited everything
the heart can wish for and at forty
four found life not worth living. The
lesson is that true happiness is only
found in sharing with one's fellows the
labors as well as the joys of life. He
who lives solely for himself at last be
comes a burden to himself.

body. Time passed and I grew worse and worse. Doctors could not relieve me nor did
the many remedies that I tried. At last I gave up hope. One day while speaking to a
friend about it he induced me to try the Famous Cooper Medicines that are so talked of
