WIN Princeton's Baseball Team Staggers Mora's Picked Players in Sun- day Afternoon's Game. Score of Five to Goose Egg Result of Contest and Hora Aggregation Is Much Cast Down. In response to a call to play a match game with the Mora baseball team the members of the Princeton club took Saturday evening's train and met the Moras upon their own diamond on Sunday afternoon. Not withstanding the fact that the Mora nine was composed of picked men from nearly every town on the line from there to Duluth, they met inglo rious defeat at the hands of the Princeton boys, the score being 5 to 0. John File pitched for the Princetons and demonstrated that he was in prime condition, playing in a manner that prevented the Moras from mak ing a score. Serenus Skahen caught for the Princetons in his usual inimitable manner. He had no passed balls and permitted no one to steal second base. By rounding the crowd and catching a most difficult foul he won the applause of the audience and surprised all par ticipants in the game. "Irish," on third base, also re ceived merited applause by an expert catch of a foul off third. The game was admirably played throughout by the Princetons, no one making an error and all giving the pitcher strong support. "THE BURGLAR AND THE WAIF" For One Night Under Management of Shavr-Uallagher Amusement Co. Before presenting this attraction to our patrons, we wish to speak a word relative to the Shaw-Gallagher Co., their star, Miss Young, and the pro duction they offer. The Shaw-Gal lagher Co. 's 23 years successful ca tering to the amusement loving pub lic affords the best possible guarantee of the coming engagement in this city of Marie Young in "The Bur glar and the Waif." It teems with bubbling comedy and pure heart in terest bearing the critical and popu lar approval of all the large cities. The local managers for this city have personally investigated the reputation of the Shaw-Gallagher Co., their star Miss Young, and the production they offer. The opinions of the press and public, over the country, has been so uniformly favorable that they feel justified in presenting this attraction under a posithe guarantee of satis faction. By this guarantee we mean that we will be pleased to refund the money of any dissatisfied patron prior to the third act of the performance. Trusting that you will be among the crowd to feast on the good things presented we will say, those desiring to witness a high class production of a great play will make no mistake in attending "The Burglar and the Waif" at Jesmer's opera house on Friday, Sept. 7th. Will Break All Records. That the wheat crop of the present season will break all previous records by at least fifteen per cent is the esti mate made by J. G. Moulson of Buttalo, N. Y., who has just com pleted a tour of the western grain fields of the Dakotas and Minnesota in the interest of a group of Buffalo Board of Trade men who are large dealers in the cereal. "With the exception of small sec tions where local storms have done some damage," said Mr. Moulson, "the whole country is looking finer than I have ever seen it in my ten years of experience in making esti mates on the grain crop. The straw is not so long as in years past, but the heads are better filled and more plump than in other years. I would not be surprised to find a yield of fif teen to twenty per cent on the average per acre lai^ger than last year, when there was a very good crop. "When we come to consider that there is a very much larger acreage than last year and the damage so far has been confined to a few spots that count for little in the grand total, the problem of harvesting and hauling this immense crop is going to be a difficult one to solve. Labor is scarer than usual, and although the farmers are willing to pay more for their help, they are liable to go short handed for the reason that the enormous amount of railway construction under way is holding the majority of what might be called the surplus labor and the con tractors are paying good wages, too. One source of relief will come from the southern grain fields, where the crop will be harvested earlier than ours, but this supply is liable not to Minnesota llislosioal Socicly be as large as in past years as there is a good demand for men in the south and they are not likely to follow the grain fields north in as large numbers as formerly. Another matter which is bound to cause a great deal of agitation will be the shortage of cars which no doubt will be as great or greater than last year, for although the roads have added to their equipment they are, in my opinion, not prepared for the ex traordinary crop now ready for the harvester. In addition to the increase in grain to be hauled, they will have to contend with the enormous increase in general traffic which, as the whole salers right here in Duluth can testify has been unprecedented in the past twelve months. A big crop means a great increase in other lines and it is the two combined which is liable to cripple the roads."News Tribune. TV. T. RINES POST IN CAMP. eterans Had a Royal Time in Their Tented City on the Plaza. The members of Wallace T. Rines post, No. 142. who attended the na tional encampment of the G. A. R. in Minneapolis, were highly pleased with the accommodations and enter tainments provided by the various committees, and say that it was the best regulated reunion they ever at tended. They met many of the old comrades who fought side by side with them in the civil war and who are now scattered throughout the country. A campfire was held every evening and around it the old war songs were sung and reminiscences of battle days re told. The singing at these campfires was led by Rev. and Mrs. G. E. Lutz of Austin, Minn. These good people placed heart and soul in the endeavor to render pleasant to the old soldiers of No. 142 the evenings spent at their tented city on the plaza. Wallace T. Rines post was the first organized body of veterans to enter the city of Minneapolis and its flag was said to be the handsomest in the grand parade. This flag was pre sented to the post by the Ladies Aux iliary to No. 1, Sons of Veterans. Post Commander Thos. H. Caley was ever alert to the needs of the post and saw that no detail was wanting which would add to the veterans' com fort. "Visitors to the camp were re ceived in royal manner and enter tained to the best of the post's ability. Fred Young and wife prepared the camp meals and W. H. Townsend was acting commissary sergeant. The splendid meals served demonstrated that the caterers were no novices in the business. The drum corps of R. E. Jones, with Wm. Lowell as fifer, enlivened the camp with patri otic music. The next encampment of the G. A. R. will be held in Saratoga in 1907. ti. A. K. Officers. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year by the Grand Army of the Republic at its annual meeting in Minneapolis: Commander-in-chief, R. B. Brown, Zanesville, Ohio. Senior Vice Commander, William H. Armstrong, Indianapolis. Junior Vice Commander, E. B. Fen ton. Detroit. Chaplain in chief, Archbishop John Ireland, St. Paul. Surgeon General, W. H. Johnson, Lincoln, Neb. i All other officers are staff appoint ments, and will be announced later by the new commander-in-chief. Mr. and Mrs. BC. Allen Visiting Here. Mr. and Mrs. John H. Allen of Los Angeles are visiting relatives and friends in Princeton and vicinity. Mr. Allen was one of the first white men to locate in Princeton,we believe he and A. B. Damon came here in 1854, and Mrs. Allen came with her peo ple a few years later. In 1877 Mr. Allen removed to Alexandria, where he was register of the land office for a time, and later went to Fergus Falls where he resided until a few years ago, when he took up his abode on the Pacific slope. Mr. and Mrs. Al len are enjoying fairly good health and they say southern California is a good place for people well along in years, but as long as life lasts their old home on the banks of the Rum will "ne'er forgotten be." Bugler Coons Goes Fishing. N. N. Coons, chief bugler for the department of Illinois, G. A. R., ar rived in Princeton on Saturday to visit his old comrade, William Ap plegate. On Sunday Mr. Coons tried his skill with the inhabitants of the River Rum and landed 39 fish, mostly rock bass,while his compan ion in the desecration of the Sabbath, Wm. Applegate, captured but one skinny chub. The old veteran, who has attained the age of sixty-six and is hale and jolly, left for his home in Sears, 111., on Tuesday. He is a member of Rock Island post, No. 242. THE PRINCETON UNIO R. C. DUNN, Publisher. Terms 1.00 Per Tear. PRINCETON, MILLE LACS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 1906. THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS Term Commences on flonday, Sep- tember 3rd, With Corps of Efficient Instructors. Prof. Austin Calls Meeting of High School and Grade Teachers for Saturday, Sept. ist. The public schools of the district will open on Monday, Sept. 3, with the following corps of teachers: High school: E. Austin, super intdendent Sarah E. Drake, princi pal Frances Peterson, English Hugh Murta, science Ida King, eighth grade Lillian Luehrs, eighth Mary Larkin, seventh grade Bertha Sell horn, sixth grade Hilma Constan tine, fifth grade: Susie Huff, fourth grade: Clara Lasher, third grade Elizabeth Du Rocher, A second. Whittier building: Elizabeth Thomp son, third grade Flossie Da?is, sec ond grade Mary Huse, first grade Lydia Tompkins, primer grade. Brickton: Nellie A. Schlenter,inter mediate Mildred Williams, primary. Mr. Austin has been at work here for some weeks perfecting arrange ments for the ensuing year. The course of study for the grades has been carefully worked out, and the reference and text book libraries have been arranged and catalogued. Some improvements have been made about the buildings, including a new system of ventilation and reshingling at the Whittier building, and a thorough overhauling of the ventilation system in the main building. This system has never worked properly, due in a large measure, no doubt, to the fact that no steam coil had been located in the central ventilator shaft in the attic. This defect has been remedied and the air ducts conducting fresh air to the rooms have also been changed, so that the fresh air may be more easily heated by being forced to sift through the steam coils. This work has been in charge of Mr. Tunsted of Minneapolis, one of the best known ventilation experts in the twin cities. While it is probable that no system of ventilation other than the fan system will work in a wholly satisfactory manner at all times, yet it is needles^ to say that the changes just made will improve matters greatly. The main building was steamed up Wednesday forenoon, and though the atmosphere was somewhat heavy, a good current of air was drawn from each room in the building. A general teachers' meeting of all grades and high school teachers has been called by Supt. Austin for Sat urday, Sept. 1, at 1:30 p. m., when plans for the work of the year will be discussed. AT NORTHW ESTERN HOSPITAL. Miss Lucine McCuaig of Bemidji entered the hospital on Monday for surgical treatment of her throat and nose. She returned to her home upon the day following the operation. John Fernell, section foreman at Zimmerman, on Monday fell from a coal wagon which he was unloading and struck his head violently against a piece of timber, inflicting a severe scalp wound. He was at oncj taken to the hospital and the necessary sur gical treatment given the patient. The fact that a large portion of the scalp was stripped from the skull makes the wound a serious one. Alfred Moline of Dalbo, who was admitted to the hospital last week suf fering from an attack of pleurisy, and who had several pints of water re moved from around the lungs, is im proving. Dwight Rakenbrandt of Mora, who was on Monday operated upon by Dr. Cooney for appendicitis, is doing well. The boy had been ill ten days before being taken to the hospital. Mrs. Andrew Nelson of Mora, who underwent a surgical operation on Monday last, is satisfactorily con valescing. Artificial Ice Cream. There is no further need for ice with which to make the delicious palate tickler so dear to the youthful heart. Some wise person has devised a way to make ice cream without the use of ice or cream. The principal ingredi ent is refined cottonseed oil made into an emulsion in a centrifugal machine rotating three thousand times per minute. It is flavored with vanilla,, glucina and nitrobenzol. This looks rather like a case for the pure food law, but as the mixture will probably be called, for advertising purposes, "cottonnitrobenzolina," it will not be affected by the law. Nothing can take the place of golden grain belt beer in the home. Order of your near est dealer or be supplied by Henry Veidt, Princeton. LOSES LIFE IN LAKE Paul Trunk of Baldwin Meets Death in Peculiar Manner While Bath- ing in Sandy Lake. Supposition That Either Sunstroke or Contact With Ice-Cold Spring Terminated Existence. Paul Otto Trunk, aged 16 years, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Trunk of the town of Baldwin, was deprived of life on Sunday afternoon in a most peculiar manner while swimming in Sandy lake. The boy, who was a good swimmer, with companions, went into the lake to bathe, while his father, mother and others of the family sat upon the bank a short distance away. Suddenly the boy uttered a cry of agony and dis appeared from sight. Several per sons hastened to his assistance, and within five minutes from the time he went down he was discovered in about four feet of water and brought to shore. All the known methods of re suscitation were there resorted to and men worked over the body for a long time without avail. The conclusion was eventually arrived at that the young man was dead before he was removed from the water. Being a good swimmer, there is scarcely a possibility that the boy was drowned, and the supposition is that he either died from sunstroke or from a shock sustained by coming into contact with an almost ice-cold spring which bubbles up near the place where he went under. He was a bright, industrious boy, and not alone will his parents miss him, but the many companions by whom he was held in high regard. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Father Levings in the Cath olic church at Princeton on Tuesday morning and the remains interred in St. Edward's cemetery. THOS. D. KERKICK DEAD. Was a Veteran of the Civil War and One of tne Heroes of Antietain. Thomas Decker Kerrick died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Chas. Busell, in Williston, N. D., on Fri day, August 10, after an illness of 'over a year. Mr. Kerrick was born on July 6, 1834, in Stuben count}, New York, and in 1863 was married to Miss Augusta Whalon. Seven children were born of the union, two of whom, together with his wife, are dead. He was a veteran of the civil war, and was wounded in the battle of Antie tarn^ He settled in Foreston, this state, in 1885, where he operated a saw and shingle mill until about four years ago, when he took up his resi dence with his daughter, Mrs. Dusell. in Williston, N. D. Mr. Kertick was known to many people in Princeton, where he occa sionally visited his daughter, Mrs. Guy Ewing. He was an industrious, affable old gentlemanone of those good old patriots who are so fast passing away. AMENDED ROUTE THREE. Inspector Harland Will Ret ominend That I Be Established. Rural Route Inspector H. Harland of Sauk Rapids yesterday made an examination of the road over which it was contemplated to operate amend ed route 3. The esablishment of this route was suspended in consequence of a disputed right of way in Baldwin township and the bad conditon of the roads. Although the right of way dispute has not yet been settled and this condition will necessitate a doub ling of about two miles of road on the proposed amended route 3, the inspec tor will recommend the establishment of such route. Upon the maintenance of good roads after the establishment of this route will depend whether it is continued or not. Digest of Immigration Report The total number of aliens who passed through the Ellis Island im migrant station in New York during the fiscal year ended June 30 was 935,915, an increase of over 100,000 as compared with 1905. There were 697,- 000 males and 272,000 females. In cluding those who reached the island and who were denied admission, over one million aliens arrived at New York. Out of the total only 38.296 were over 44 years old. Some 100,000 had been in the United States before. Al together they brought with them $19,- 000,000. For various causes 7,877 were deported, including 195 crimin als, 119 insane, and others because they had various contagious diseases. Italy led with 254,238 to her credit, and Russia followed with 163,316 Hungary sent 128,247 Austria, 96,625 Great Britain and Ireland, 71,000 Germany, 30,808, and the Scandina- J' S^tff?? vian countries 33,000. The greater number remained in New York and Pennsylvania. Of those who arrived in the month of June alone, 45,433 gave their destination as New York, and 15,793 went to Pennsylvania. The greatest number which went to any other state in the month of June was 6,531 to Illinois. New Jersey came next with 5,971. The efforts made to get immigrants to go south are not successful to any great extent. Only seven went to Arkansas, 63 to Georgia, 24 to Mis sissippi, 23 to North Carolina, 23 to South Carolina, 6 to Texas, and so on to the other southern states. West Virginia, to which 19 immigrants went in June, received a larger number than any other southern state, not ex cluding Maryland, which received only 526 of those who landed at New York. VILLAGE WELL REINCORPORATE. Special Election Held Tuesday Decides Question of New Charter. Very little interest was manifested in the special election held on Tues day for the purpose of determining whether or not the village of Prince ton should reincorporate under the provisions of chapter 9 of the revised statutes. The total number of ballots cast was 62, 58 for reincorporation and 4 against. This means that the old special-law charter under which the affairs of the village are now con ducted will be discarded and a new charter drawn which will meet the present-day requirements. As a progressive move the decision to reincorporate is a most important accomplishment. Jury List.

Geo. Rice and wife, P. Wikeen and wife, Louis Larson and wife, and Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Schulte of Leaven worth, Kansas, drove to Cove on a fishing trip on Friday and returned Monday. The boys say that Mille Lacs lake is swarming with fish of every description and that they rav enously take any sort of bait. But one slight accident happened on the trip and that was to Louis Larson, who slipped from off a boulder upon which the was standing into eight or ten feet of water. A Form er Princeton Boy. William McCuaig of Bemidji is a candidate for representative on the republican ticket from the 61st dis trict. Mr. McCuaig is a Mille Lacs county manhe was born and raised hereand is now one of the leading business men of Beltrami county's chief town. Mac is "all wool and a yard wide," and his many friends here hope he will win out at the prim aries and at the November election. The voters of the 61st district can rest assured of one thing, whatever Will McCuaig promises to do he will do. Notice to Parents. Parents having children who are to enter school for the first time should note that such pupils will be admitted only during the first two weeks of school. Entering pupils must be six years of age on or before Jan. 1st, in order to be admitted this fall. Pupils will not be admitted to the freshman class in the high school af ter Sept. 10th. It is earnestly hoped that all pupils will be present on the opening day. C. E. Austin, Superintendent. MINNESOTA HISTORICAL OCtETY. VOLUME XXX. NO. 37 MODERN EQUIPMENT Council Decides to Replace Engine and Dynamo With Machines of Greater Capacity. Inadequacy of Present Plant to Meet Requirements of Village Ne- cessitates This Action. A special meeting the village coun cil was held on Monday evening to receive the report of a committee ap pointed at the regular meeting, August 9, to determine the necessity of purchasing a new engine and dynamo for the power house. The committee, which consisted of Councilmen Caley, Chapman and Craig, reported that, in accordance with instructions, the old engine and dynamo had been examined and found to be inadequate to meet the requirements, but that the boiler ca pacity, as stated by Electrician Bur bank at the last meeting, was suffi cient for present needs. Prices of engines and dynamos were presented to the council and after due consideration it was voted to purchase from R. B. Whitacre & Co, St. Paul, a Chuse 4-valve, 155 horse-power en gine, a 90-kilowat Western Electric Co. generator and a 150 horse-power Hoppes heater, the whole to cost $3,385 and to be delivered within 60 days from date of contract. With the installation of this new equipment Electrician Burbank will be in a position to give the village the very best of service. The council acted wisely in making the purchase at this time, for when winter com mences the demand will be so great upon the powerhouse plant that the present machinery would be entirely inadequate to carry the load. JOHN GOSS. He is a Candidate for the Republican Nomination for State Senator. Mr. John Goss of Anoka, one of the pioneer farmers and lumbermen of the Rum river valley and a former resident of Princeton, has filed for the republican nomination for senator from the 45h district. Mr. Goss is well and favorably known to every old settler along the Rum river from its source to its mouth. He has never sought political preferment heietofore and it is at the urgent solicitation of friends in his home town that he has consented to enter the race for sena tor. Mr. Goss is president of the State Bank of Anoka and farms on a large scale, an'd until recently lum bered extensively. He is recognized as one of Anoka's public-spirited citi zens and is a man of spotless reputa tion. He has a host of friends through out the district, and he will prove a formidable candidate. Bogan and Koosevelt. Col. Bogan died the other day in New York city. He began life, after leaving the Green Isle, as a roust about, rose to be stevedore, trucker, coal merchant was captain in the civil war and rose to a colonelcy Tammany sent him to the legislature. He served three terms. In his last term a young man, a new member, was fighting hard for some measure. The majority, Bogan's side, liked neither the youngster nor his measure. Its parliamentarians threw blocks in his path, plied all their arts to thwart him. Bogan took an interest in the contest. Straightforward himself, the underhanded tricks of his colleagues disgusted him. Finally, to their sur prise, Bogan took the floor to assist the younsgster. His associates tried to pull him down. One of them said to him: "That youngster isn't with us. He's a republican from the silk stocking district." I don't care who he is or where he is from. He's a fighter, and he's right and I am with him," roared Bogan. The young as semblyman is now president of the United States. A friendship began then that ends now only in Bogan's death. Pity there are not more Bogans in lesgislatures.Dispatch. Peaches. Peaches $2.00 per bushel, (equal to about three ordinary half bushel crates). We are taking orders now for choice yellow freestone peaches direct from the orchard. No commis sion house peach. These were bought by us from the owner of the orchard. Have orders now for nearly the car load which will arrive about Sept. 10. Get your order in early. No money required until gou yet the peaches. Patterson Grocery Co. Lawn Festival at Glendorado. A lawn festival will be held at the residence of S. Kittilson in Glendo rado next Sunday afternoon for the benefit of the Norwegian Lutheran church. A pleasant time is antici pated. A cordial invitation is ex tended to all to participate and help a worthy cause.
