Miss Dollie Adams Becomes His Bride
at Home of Her Parents in
Hamline on Feb. 8th.
Mr. Orr Was Born and Raised in
Princeton and Graduated at
Its High School.
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Adams, at
their home, 1338 Capitol avenue in
Hamline last evening gave their
daughter, Dollie, in marriage to
Charles Orr.
Both the bride and bridegroom are
graduates of Hamline university and
their school friends and classmates
formed a large number of the guests
present. Mr. Orr has also recently
graduated from the St. Paul school
of law.
Southern smilax unrelieved by floral
appointments maintained a bower
hke effect through the rooms, and in
the parlor where the ceremony was
solemnized effected a dainty altar.
Rev. I. M. Iverson read the impres
sive service. During the reading
'Oh, Promise Me*' was softly played
by Mrs. Wallace Boyer. who, at the
entrance of. the bridal party, played
Mendelssohn's march, and, after the
ceremony, ga\e the Lohengrin wedding
The bride was attended by Miss
Louise Webb as maid of honor. She
wore a dainty gown of white dotted
swiss and carried a large cluster of
pink roses. The two bridesmaids,
Miss Winifred Bloomfield of New
York city and Miss Alice Adams were
gowned in fluffj white and carried
pink carnations.
The bride wore a girlish gown of
white batiste and valenciennes lace
with lull veil and carried a shower
boquet of lilies-of-the-valley. Helen
Benham and Dorothy Adams, the two
little flower girls who preceded her,
were dressed alike in smart frocks of
white and carried baskets filled with
pink and white blossoms.
Herman Stark was the best man and
George Dunn and Lewis Adams were
the ushers.
The reception which followed was
very informal. Receiving with Mr.
and Mrs. Orr were Mr. and Mrs.
Alexander Adams, and Mr. and Mrs.
Robert C. Dunn of Princeton, Minn.
Dainty refreshments were served in
the dining room, where, in bright con
trast to the prevailing green of the
other rooms, a color motif entirely
red was carried out. A great
heart formed of red tulips centered
the bridal table Streamers of red
extended starlike points from the
center to the edge of the table and in
the intervals- red tapers in silver
candlesticks glowed softly. Among
the guests, of whom there were about
200, was Miss Esther Colby of Red

Residence of John Neville and Part of*
Contents Incinerated.
On Friday night at about 10:30
'clock the residence of John Neville
on the north side took fire and before
the department could reach the scene
the structure had been reduced to
ashes. Some difficulty was exper
ienced in transmitting an alarm in
consequence of a failure to receive a
response from central over the tele
phone system. This necessitated the
dispatching of a messenger to the
power house and the time thus con
sumed rendered the services of the de
partmentwhich responded promptly
to callfutile.
The furniture in the upper story, as
well as a portion of that on the
ground floor, was destroyed. The
origin of the fire is supposed to be a
defective flue.
Mr. Neville purchased the house
from E. C. Early and had partly paid
for it. It was insured for $600 with J.
J. Skahen and the furniture carried
an insurance of $300. The building
was valued at $1,000.
On the Job to Stay.
In Washington not long ago An
drew Carnegie was in conversation
with a friend when reference was made
to the servant "problem." Mr. Car
negie mentioned the fact that in many
Scottish families the old man-servant
is something of an institutioa. Such
a servant usually enters the employ
of a particular family when he is a
boy, adheres faithfully to his place
for a long time, and resigns only when
the infirmities 'of years crowd upon
As illustrating the sturdy independ
ence of the Scottish servant Mr. par-L
negie told the following:
"A certain lady in the north of
&4&ri -Anst** 1 ^d^^A^iiM^j^JLJ^^ih
Scotland had in her emoloy a crusty
old servitor, long in the service of her
family, who gave her no end of an
noyance by an imperious disregard of
her instructions. At length, the sit
uation becoming unbearable, the mis
tress determined to see what effect
dismissal would have upon the re
fractory servant. Accordingly she
summoned him and said:
'Really, can stand this no
longer. You must seek another place.
At the end of the month you leave my
'At these words an expression of
grim amusement spread over the
countenance of the servant, but the
characteristic 'loyalty' asserted itself.
'Na, na, my lady,' said he. 'I
drove you to the kirk to be baptized,
I drove you to your marriage, and
I'll stay to drive you to your
funeral.' "Harper's Weekly.
Greater Activity in the Movement of Tri
umphs in Texas.
Potato dealers in Kansas City re
port that there has been a material
increase the past week or ten days in
the inquiry for seed potatoes from the
south, but there appears to be very
little basis for estimating the Texas
acreage compared with a year ago.
Representatives of Kansas City houses
in the Lone Star state appear to be as
much at sea regarding what the acre
age will finally prove to be as people
who have not been there this season.
They report that it is the general
statement of growers nearly every
where in the state that not nearly so
many potatoes as last vear are going
to be planted. The fact, however,
that a good many growers who as
serted a month ago that they were
not going to plant any potatoes this
ear are now actively at work in get
ting a crop into the ground, adds to
the uncertainty of the probable acre
age. Dealers figure if these growers
have finally decided to plant that
there will be ^many more follow suit.
Most all of the trading centers in
Texas report considerable activity in
the seed potato movement. Several
houses here have done a rather large
business the past week in filling or
One thing that has encouraged in
creased planting of late has been the
drop in prices of seed stock.
Triumphs can now be purchased at
most Texas points for around $1 per
bushel, compared with $1.25 to $1.40
earlier in the season. A year ago
Texas growers had to pay $1 25 to
$1.50 per bushel for Triumph seed
stock. The lower prices for Thiumph
seed now and the higher prices for
which table stock is selling, dealers
take it. combine to make a more at
tractive proposition to growers than
the case has heretofore appeared to
them Then, too, dealers and indus
trial agents of the leading railroads
have talked much more in favor of
planting this season than last, which
is having some effect.
The recent drop in the prices of
potatoes, both seed and table stock,
has increased the movement some
what. Throughout Kansas and Okla
homa the inquiry has been little bet
ter the past week than for some time
previously, 'including some orders for
seed stock. There have also been
several cats of seed stock placed in
the Kaw valley this week. Some deal
ers here estimate that the Kaw valley
acreage this year will be increased
one-third over that of a year ago.
The growers in the Kaw valley did
reasonably well with their crop last
year, and the fact that the south is
talking reduced acreage this spring
encourages planting in the Kaw
The holders as a rule, particularly
regular dealers, appear to be selling
freely nearly everywhere in the coun
try now. The absence of very cold
weather up to this time has discour
aged some who had hoped for a sharp
advance the latter part of the winter,
and they are turning loose their
potatoes whenever they think they are
getting current market values. Col
orado has been moving its crop pretty
freely lately. Dealers in that state
appear to accept the situation and are
making sales on a basis of "present
values, but some of the growers are
still bullishly inclined and are hold
ing back to some extent.
The local demand for table stock
for some time past has been rather
more active than usual.. -TJie fact
that nearly stock has been pretty
well exhausted is largely accountable
for this. JjS

Memorial Services Held in Methodist
and Congregational Churches
on Sunday Evening.
Attractive Exercises, Largely of a
Patriotic and Choral Nature,
in Both the Edifices.
The Lincoln memorial services in
the Methodis't and Congregational
churches on Sunday evening were of
more than ordinary attractiveness,
and both edifices were crowded to the
doors. At each place of worship the
addresses were interspersed with vo
cal and instrumental music which par
took largely of a patriotic nature.
In the Methodist church Rev. E. C.
Clemans, D. D., presiding elder of
this diocese, was the principal speak
er, and handled his subject, Abra
ham Lincoln," in a manner which
demonstrated his ability both as an
orator and a student of history. The
other numbers on the program were
well rendered, and especially the
duet by Mrs. Cooney and Fremont
In the Congregational church Dr
Cooney was unable to be present, as
advertised, and his part was taken by
Rev. Tebbetts of St. Paul. He was
followed by Prof. Jones and G. A.
Eaton. The different phases of Abra
ham Lincoln's life were most ably
presented by these gentlemen. The
choir, as usual, gave its selections
with credit to itself and enjoyment
to the audience. Mr. Anderson's
violin solo, accompanied by Mrs. Ben
Soule, was most pleasing. Mrs
Henderson gave Whittier's ''Barbara
Frietchie'' in a manner which plainly
showed the dramatic and stage tram
ing she has had. She is a pupil of the
celebrated prima donna of grand
opera, Mme. Marie Biro De Marion.

Feb. 13th the Mille Lacs Chippewa
Indians who reside in the vicinity of
Tamarack village the per capita due
them of the annuity of 1905. These
Indians, who number some two hun
dred, were unable to attend to the an
nual payment which was paid last fall
at Lawrence, Minn. Many of them
are needy at the present time and a
little money will materially help to
relieve their wants. Last year several
of these people were induced to re
move to the White Earth ieser\ation,
where good homes, schools for their
children, an indigent home for the
old and helpless and many other
benefits has been provided for their
welfare and comfort. Such as have
removed seem to be well satisfied with
improved circumstances and condi
tions which the new order of things
have opened up for them* and they
have written to their friends and rela
tives urging them to remove the
new homes provided for them. Sev

to more congenial surroundings.
Juniors Entertain Teachers
On Thursday evening the Juniors
of the Princeton high school enter
tained the teachers of the institution
in the class room. It was a mirthful
crowd that gathered upon that occa
sion to participate in the speeches,
games and feast of good things. The
Juniors demonstrated that they are
fully as capable of entertaining their
teachers as are the Seniors. Socials
of this nature are to be commended,
as they tend to bring the teachers and
pupila into closer touch and furnish a
very pleasant diversion.

The Teacher Was Justified.
The question of corporal punish

is a much debated one. There are
some who would abolish it entirely,
while others defend it most vigor

must admit that there are cases where

alone has the power to suspend or ex
them to time by force? There is
higher law governing teachers, as
as other persons, than shallow
and puerile school rules.
It is very seldom we find an ac
countwhen the facts are not sur
reptitiously distorted by exaggera
tionthat a teacher has inflicted cor
poral punishment in excess. When
corporal punishment becomes neces
sary is it not in accordance with
all sane views that it be seldom but
severe.-* It is most detrimental to such

trary to the best interest of the school,

obedience. It would be a blessing to
