I a^ Merchants have their faults and make their mistakes like other people. Some of them are poor business men and they conduct poor, sleepy, unin viting, out-of-date stores. Then oc casionally there is a rascal among them. But taken as a whole, they average as high as any classmechan ics, farmers or professional men. We don't know of a town that has not in different lines of business at least three or four good, honest, conscien tious, hard-working merchants. What do they do to merit your pat ronage? They urge you to enjoy the conveniences of their stores. You are always welcome. Of course the city, catalogue houses can't do that. The home merchants show you the goods before you purchase and wil- State News, A railway company has been obliged to refuse ice cut for it at Min nesota lake because di the schools of minnows found frozen in the ice. The Cass Lake postofflce has at last changed postmasters. C. M. Johnson, who was appointed some two months ago, has assumed the duties, and F. W. Smith has retired. A window of the Review office in Chaska was smashed upon two differ ent occasions by an employe of the Valley Herald. The smasher has left for parts unknown. His reasons for the action is not clearly apparent Charles Roxbrough, a brakeman in the employ of the Minnesota & North Wisconsin railway, while engaged in shunting cars near Cloquet, slipped and fell, the wheels passing over his right leg, from the effects of which he died soon after. There is said to be an abundance of seed wheat in the Red River Val ley for the coming crop and that the farmers have at least 15 per cent of last year's crop in their granaries in excess of the amount that will be needed for seed. Lost for several days in the deep woods near Virginia, freezing his feet and burning them in a fire so se verely that uraemic poisoning re sulted, E.

Straw of St. Paul has been sentenced by Judge Amidon in the United States court at Duluth to three months in the Ramsey county jail and to pay a fine of $200 for perjury. The witnesses for the gov ernment were Miss Kate Fisher and Miss Bernice Farwell, teachers of St. Paul, who filed on what Straw led them to believe was timber land, but which is agricultural. At meeting of the university athletic board Dr. H.

The board had already drawn up the contract with Dr. Williams, and as he announced three weeks ago that the arrangements were satisfactory to him, all that re mained to be done was the attachment of his signature.

The home merchants' reputation and business standing in the community are back of every sale they make. The catalogue houses feel no such responsibility. Their misdeeds in one community do not hurt them in others. They would rather lose a customer than lose a dollar. The home mer chant would rather lose a dollar than lose a customer. The home merchants buy your pro duce, some times at a loss. The cata logue houses don't. The home merchants give credit when necessary. The catalogue houses insist on spot cash. The home merchants live among you, contribute to the upbuilding of three years, with permission to take a leave of absence next spring for the purpose of a European trip. The contract provides that if football is abolished or becomes a losing propo sition financially the contract will not be binding. Emii Walsten, a laborer, had one of his ears cut off and his right arm fractured in two places in the Great Northern \ards, Minneapolis, near the freight depot. He was shoveling snow from the tracks when a freight train backed on him. He was thrown beside the tracks and the wheels took off an ear. He fell on his right arm. When picked up by the other workmen his head lay against one of the rails. Wm Krause, freight conductor on the Northwestern railway, was run over Rochester at the Broadway crossing and instantly killed. He was switching a car from his train and in some manner was struck or slipped in the darkness, the car and locomotive passing over him, crush ing the skull and horribly mangling the upper part of the body. His home is in Winona and he leaves a wife and two children. Rev. G. J. Kelly, pastor of the Methodist church at Rothsay, had an unpleasant experience when he drove into the country to fulfill an appoint ment. He has been in America about one year, and in spite of a high wind and the weather 20 below zero,he drove about ten miles to his appointment. Not a farmer was present from the neighborhood, all being afraid to even risk coming a few miles to church. The minister returned to Rothsay and suffered terribly from the biting cold. He was compelled to have medical attention. Excelsior is to have the warmest vil lage campaign of its history next spring. Beer or no beer is to be the issue and already the rival parties are girding for the fray. The women of the village are interested and have already started out to raise a dry campaign fund. The Excelsior "wets" and "drys" have clashed be fore, when Excelsior was, so to speak, off the map. This time there are new influences, namely, the trolley line that brings the town within forty min utes of Minneapolis at any time of the day or nightand the Minneapolis lid. The Excelsior drys do not relish the idea of having the quiet erstwhile respectable town turned into a mam- THE PBINOBTOtf UNIOK your town, your schools and your churches. Their interests are your interests. The catalogue houses spend their profits elsewhere. The very nature of their business kills the small community and builds up the large city. The home merchants can and do meet all legitimate competition. You owe it to your town's welfare and your own welfare to give your mer chants a chance to prove this state ment before denying them your pat ronage. The catalogue houses, in their deal ings with you, ignore all the funda mental principles of community wel fare. Their methods are a trespass on community rights. Think it over' moth Sunday beer resort for Minne apolis. This they feel would be the case with an open policy in the town at the present time. The fierce county-seat war which has raged in Sherburne county be tween partizans of Elk River and Becker is apparently about to be set tled by action of the district court. Attorneys for the two towns have agreed on a case to be submitted to Judge Giddings and briefs are now being prepared. The action is to compel the county commissioners to submit thjf question of county-seat re moval at a special election. The board was petitioned to do this two years ago but refused. The feud has torn asunder friendships of long standing. Amy Gustafson, the eight-year-old daughter of Mrs. Nels Gustafson of the town of Dovre, near Willmar, froze to death while walking from her grandmother's to her mother's home, a distance of about four miles. With a ten-year-old cousin she had been staying at the grandmother's home. The two children started out to ex amine traps they had set for small game and then decided to walk to Amy's home. After wandering about for four hours they reached the home of Henry Carlson, where Amy collapsed, utterly exhausted and numbed by the cold. Every effort was made to revive her, but she died in a few moments. Sheriff Albertson of Otter Tail county has in his hands an execution to be levied on a tombstone in a cemetery within four miles of Park er's Prairie, and says he does not relish the job before him of robbing a grave. He might be haunted by the ghost he robs. The tombstone was sold some time ago by a Crookston marble company, which brought an action for the purchase price. Judg ment was entered and execution is sued. There is no property for the sheriff to attach except the tomb stone. It is said the creditors are willing to take $35 for the stone, and Sheriff Albertson says that he will give the creditors $35 rather than levy on the tombstone.

Dr. Ohvei Touks in the Outlook Mag azine shows the difficulties of distin guishing real from spurious antiquities. Here is oue of his anecdotes. At times the forger is content to take ancient fragments of ancient vases or statuettes and complete them with clay or plaster of pans These new "old" wares he then paints up and passes to the unsuspecting, and sometimes sus pecting, purchaser as real antiques. The story is told of a foiger Athens that he piotested that when he had fin ished "improving" an antique he him self could not always tell where the genuine pait ceased and the false be gan Under such circumstances it may not be wondeied that at times e\en expeits are tucked The following Incident shows how f01 genes turn up In very unexpected places One hot day a party of us were toiling up a steep ascent in the island of Melos when we saw above us a number of Gieeks seated on a parapet of ruins We had been cruising long enough among the JEgean islands to know that these people of the place had seen our ship drop anchor in the water below and were now waiting to sell us antiquities At the sight of these Gieeks one of our number, a tireless Scotchwoman, scrambled ahead ot us to the top, where we could soon see her, wind blown and outlmed against the blue sky, bargaining for a vase. When reached the top after a more leisurely climb she put her purchase in my hands and asked me what I thought of it My hands were moist with per spnation from the exertion of the climb, and for answer to her question I held them out to her all blackened from grasping the ase The sweat had at tacked the modern paint with which it was covered, and by thus coming off on ray hands the color had betrayed its falsity The whole vase had been patched up from six of seven pieces and then painted over to conceal the repairing Jumble of Languages. There are towns in Hungary, and small towns, too, where from seven to ten idioms are constantly being used. On the Galician frontier there is in a lovely valley the old town of Eperjes. The number of Its inhabitants do not exceed 12,000. To this day the good people of Eperjes are in the habit of talking or being talked to in six dif ferent languages and several dialects. An ordinary household will include a Slovac manserv ant, a Hungarian coach man, a German cook and a Polish cham bermaid. What is still more remarkable, each grade of society will tenaciously cling to Its own language for centuries. The Bishop and the Senator, A visiting bishop in Washington was arguing with a senator on the desira bility of attending church. At last he put the question squarely, "What is your personal reason for not attend- ing?" The senator smiled in a no-offense-in tended way as he replied, "The fact is, one finds so many hypocrites there." Returning the smile, the bishop said: "Don't let that keep you away, sena tor.

The Uncomfortable Howdah. The elephant's howdah is that bed at Procrustes in which one can neither sit nor stand with any approach to reasonable ease, and in which a re cumbent attitude Is impossible. Its ad vantages are, first, that, standing in it, a man can shoot on every side of him second, that it is convenient for the carriage of the occupant's parapher nalia, his guns on racks on either side, his ammunition in a trough in front, his other requisites in leather pockets here and there on the sides of the ma chine or, as to that, bee blanket on his seat, and, thud, that in the hinder com partment an attendant can sit or stand to hold that monstrous umbrella over his head or, when quick loading Is re quired, take from his hand the gun Just fired and recharge it Those are advantages, otherwise the howdah is an abomination Blackwood's Mag azlne Edwin Booth as a Smoker.
