Saus ser, died in north Princeton on Satur day, November 3, aged 32 years, the cause of death being heart failure. Mrs. Sausser was the daughter of Perry and Eva Bullis and was born Princeton on July 30, 1874. She was educated in the Princeton public schools and was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of this village.

She also leaves a father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Perry Bullis, and two brothers, Hiram and Charles Bullis, all of whom re side in Princeton. Mrs. Sausser was a lady much be loved by all who knew her. She was possessed of a kindly disposition and was ever ready to render assistance to her neighbors in the time of neces sity. Many are those who will miss this kindly, christian woman. The funeral rites were solemnized at the family residence on Tuesday af ternoon. Rev. J. W. Heard of the Princeton M. E. church officiated. The interment took place in Oak Knoll cemetery and a large number of people followed the remains to the grave. ROOF ABLAZE. Prompt Arrival of Fire Department Saves Home From Destruction. Fire was discovered at about 9 o'clock on Thursday night issuing from the roof of the Patchen residence and an alarm immediately turned in by G. O. Weberg of the Tri-State Tele phone company, who was passing at the. time. The prompt arrival of the fire\ department upon the scene evi dently prevented the total destruction of the building, for the flames were making rapid headway when the lad dies reached there. It took but a short time, however, to extinguish the flames There was no one in the house at the time of the fire, which started in the garret, and its origin is a mystery. The damage to the furniture from water amounted to about $25 and to the roof between $40 and $50, both of which is covered by insurance. Wanted to Show Her Agility Attorney General Moody was once riding on the platform of a Boston street car, standing next to the gate that protected passengers from car's coming on the other track. A Boston lady came to the door of the car, and, as it stopped, started toward the gate, which was hidden from her by the men standing before it. "Other side, please, lady," said the conductor. He was ignored as only a born-and bred Bostonian can ignore a man. The lady took another step toward the gate. You must get off on this side,'' said the conductor I wish to get off on this side," came the answer in tones that con gealed that official into momentary silence. Before he could explain or expostulate Mr. Moody came to his assistance "Stand to one side, gentlemen," he remarked. ''The lady wishes to climb over the gate."Ladies'Home Jour nal. COMPULSORY EDUCATION. Sections of Law Under New Code of Min nesota Covering: the Same. Having received many inquiries as to the provisions of the compulsory education law as required by tne new code, Supt. Ewing deems necessary the publication of two sections cover ing the same. These sections are as follows: Sectioon 1445.

Mutilated Spelling JKeceives Hard Knocks. HayiieS Defeats JoiieS fOr Indirectly President Roosevelt and Andrew Carnegie were alluded to as cranks and crazy fanatics last week at a mass meeting at the rooms of the board of education in New York to consider the application of the simpli fied spelling board to have the new fangled orthography forced on the school children"tried on the dogs," as one of the speakers expressed it. Rossiter Johnson, the author, ap peared at the meeting with a protest so numerously signed by well known literary people and educators as to indicate there is already a large and organized revolt against the system which is extending to every part of the country. Professor Brander Matthews of Columbia, chairman of the simplified spelling board, openly admitted he would not use the new spelling if he were writing another novel, as it might hurt the sale of the book. It was a hot meeting from start to finish. The first speaker was Profes sor Matthews, wno declared the Eng lish language was the worst of all modern languages, freakish, violent and absurd. He asked the committee of the school board to authorize the new spelling in the schools. He apologized for the much criticised word "thru," which appears in the list of 300 words sent out by the sim plified spelling board, and said the board was not responsible for it, but the National Educational association. Rossiter Johnson attacked the whole simplified spelling scheme. It would not save space or diminish the size of books. Poor spellers would still spell poorly no matter how short the words. The new spelling would obscure the etymology and destroy its historical significance. Many words would look so much alike it would strain the eye to read them. He read these extracts from letters he had received about the innovation: Edith Wharton called it "desecra tion of our speech." Professor Marvin R. Vincent of Union Theological seminary wrote that he'' detested the whole business.,'' Julian Hawthorne said a simplified speller would "murder his own mother and dishonor her grave." Molly Elliot Seawell wrote: I have much pleasure in signing the in closed protest against the crazy spell ing advocated by certain cranks of high and low degree. I think it a violation of good taste, good sense and almost of good morals. It would put out of court every classic in the English language. I am glad to know that the naval institute has declined to observe the president's recommenda tion, or perhaps order, and still spells decently." Charles Warren Stoddard wrote, I am a natural born misspeller, and I don't have to go to the White House to catch it." Professor Taylor of Vassar said,"I doubly deprecate spelling reform by executive order." Professor John M. Cleary of Ford ham college said teaching simplified spelling to some without the authority to enforce it on all would tend to create a caste in language, with one spelling for the poor and another for the rich and the literary classes. Miss Grace Strachan, district school superintendent in Brooklyn, expressed the same fear. SWEPT THE STATE Gov. Johnson Re-elected by About 50,000 Plurality- Carried Every Congressional District and Almost Every County. Two years ago Hennepin county de feated the republican candidate for governorhe carried the state out side of that county. Last June at the Duluth convention that county practically dictated the nomination of Mr. A. L. Cole. Taking these facts into consideration it is not a diffi cult matter to account for Mr. John son's overwhelming victory at the polls. Although the head of the republican state ticket was defeated all the other nominees are elected by comfortable majorities. Both branches of the legislature are strongly republican, although the democrats made some slight gains. It is to be regretted that Gen. James H. Baker, republican candidate for the senate in Blue Earth county, was defeated. Cant and hypocrisy was fittingly re buked in Minneapolis by the turning down of Percy Jones and the election of James C. Haynes as mayor. Mr. Haynes' majority is over 4,000. The sane, sensible people of Minneapolis are to be congratulated over the mag nificent victory they achieved at the polls. Mr. Haynes is a practical, straightforward man and once he is fairly settled in office he will speedily rid that city of the gang of thugs who have made it their rendezvous for the past two years, In the second congressional district James T. McCleary is defeated by W. S. Hammond. Mr. McCleary is an exceedingly able man but his stand did not please the hard headed voters in the southwest corner of the state. Hammond will be the only democrat in the Minnesota con gressional delegation. Hughes, the republican candidate for governor of New York, defeated Wm. R. Hearst by 50,000. The majority is small considering the enormous vote polled. The republicans will have a large majority in the next congress, Nominees on State Ticket Safe- Legislature Overwhelmingly Republican McCleary Defeated. -He Mayor of Minneapolis by 4,000 VotesHughes Defeats Hearst in New York by 50,000. Republicans Are Successful in*Nearly All the Northern States and "Will Have a Large Working Major ity in Next Congress. Two years ago John A. Johnson was elected governor by a plurality of 7,862 votes, this year he wins by 50,000. Many republicans who voted for their party's nominee for governor in 1904 voted for Mr. Johnson last Tuesday. They reasoned that if Johnson was good enough two years ago he was good enough now. Then again the republican candidate in 1904 received anywhere from 20,000 to 25,000 demo cratic votes. This year Mr. A. L. Cole did not poll five per cent of that democratic vote. The governor's per sonal popularity had very little to do with the landslide in his favor, for he ran equally as well in the counties where he did not speak as in the coun ties in which he addressed largely attended meetings. Only Two Contests for Local Offices and Light Vote Polled Cole Carries Princeton Town and Village Johnson Gets County. although several of the old time leaders have failed of re-election. A light vote was polled in Mille Lacs county as there was no opposi tion for any of the local offices save in two commissioner districts and little interest was manifested. Mr. Cole carried Princeton town and vil lage and Mr. Johnson carried every other voting precinct in the county. It is very evident that the Johnson men all voted. 1 The Result Locally. There^ was no contest over any of the local offices Tuesday save for county commissioners in the Second and Fourth districts and that, in measure, accounts for the light vote polled. In the Second district (Green bush) Ole Uglem was elected over Robert S. Shaw by ten votes. In the Fourth district (Foreston, Milaca, Milo, Milaca town, Page and Hay land) Mr. George H. Deans was de feated by C. E. Erickson by 25 votes. Mr. George H. Deans has served as county commissioner for ten years. He has proved a faithful and efficient public servant and accomplished much for his district and the county at large. The great improvement of the public highways in the central part of the county is largely due to Mr. Deans' efforts. Robert S. Shaw was also a useful member, but he had not as large ex perience as Mr. Deans. If Messrs. Uglem and Erickson do as well as their predecessors their constituents will have no reason to find fault.

The farmers of the southwest are holding a convention in Topeka to consider ways and means for sustain ing the price of wheat. They incline to the opinion that the holding of wheat on the farms will cause mate rial advance in the price. If it were possible to hold wheat back an ad vance in price might result, but what would happen when the farmer begins to sell? It has been demonstrated that the individual who has ingored supply and brought the market to a "corner," that supply governs in the end and prices seek a normal level with great loss to the manipulator. In the To peka instance the farmers would take the place of the speculative plunger and no doubt the same result would followthe price would fall to a lower point than it otherwise would with the sending of farm stocks to market. The supply of any product will gov ern in the end. It is an idle dream to attempt by force to cause an advance. It would mean money loss in the end to the majority of sellers.Commer cial West. YOUNG-BANDAMERE. Gordon Young and Miss Amanda Banda mere Married In Germany Last Night. At 8:30 last evening Gordon Young, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Young of Princeton, was married to Miss Amanda Bandamere, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Bandamere, at the home of the bride's parents in Ger many. Rev. Strauch performed the ceremony in the presence of about fifty guests. The bridesmaids were Misses Lena Bandamere and Annie Tuber and the groomsmen Max Young and William Bandamere. A gown of white organdie was worn by the bride and the bouquet she car ried was of pink carnations, while the bridesmaids were attired in dresses of white figured goods and carried nose gays of roses. The weddng ceremony was followed by a sumptuous supper in the prettily decorated dining room. Many useful gifts were bestowed upon the young people. Mr. and Mrs. Young have gone to housekeeping in the Mrs. Sinclair res idence in this village. SAXON-TRABANT. Married at Congregational Parsonage on Thursday, Nov. 1. Miss Ida Trabant, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. N. Trabant of Bogus Brook, and Harry Saxon, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Saxon of Princeton township, were married on Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Congregational par sonage by Rev. Henderson. Miss Olive Saxon, sister of the groom, at tended the bride and Herbert Ander son the groom Only the near rela tives of the bride and groom were in attendance at the wedding. The bride wore a gown of white or gandie while the bridesmaid was ap pareled in a dress of blue silk. Both carried bouquets of carnations and smilax. Immediately following the marriage rites the bridal party repaired to the dining room and there partook of dinner which had been provided by the groom's parents. Both parlor and dining room were decorated with flowers and evergreens, producing a very pretty effect. In the evening the young people were serenaded by the Princeton band, and the marriage festivities continued un til after midnight. Mr. and Mrs. Saxon will reside for awhile with the groom's parents and expect to later move onto a farm. Equal to the Occasion. The enterprising lad noticed an ad vertisement calling for a red-haired office boy, but lacked the qualification mentioned. Say, sis," he remarked, where'd you keep your peroxide?

Movement From Growers to Ware- houses Not Nearly so Heavy as That of Last Week. In the local market but slight vari ation from the prices prevailing for the past thirty days is noticeable, and buyers tell us that there is no indica tion of an immediate advance. Re ceipts at the warehouses have this week been much lighter than those of last, which is partially attributable to bad roads and partially to the fact that many farmers have disposed of a sufficient quantity of spuds to supply them with the cash necessary for im mediate use and are awaiting higher prices. The congested condition of the big markets to which most of the pota toes from this point are shipped seem to.preclude the possibility of higher prices prevailing for some time to come. Then, again, there is the local congestion. Most of the warehouses are filled almost to their fuil capacity, and this condition has been brought about by the shortage of cars. Orders in large number are standing on the books of the local shippers, but it is impossible for them to forward the po tatoes in consequence of this shortage. Car ^shortage is general throughout the country and this cannot do other than have a bad effect on the market. The potato crop throughout the country is, according to statisticians, below the average, and this should, if the reports be authentic, have the ulti mate effect of advancing prices. Very few potatoes in this neighbor hood now remain in the ground and but a very small quantity has been affected by frost. Triniti Is Doomed. Undismayed by the obsoletion of Volapuk and the hopelessness of Es peranto, a California professor with time on his hands and a rage for humanity burning in his breast, has invented another languageTriniti, designed for universal speech. It is composed of Greek, Latin and Eng lish, whence its name, and it differs from any other tongue in that it con tains no cuss words. That settles it: Triniti is doomed. It will be as dead as Volapuk in a year. Because lan guage doubtless began with exclama tions rather than with explanation. The first word was a yell of dissatis faction when prehistoric man, driv ing a picture nail, missed it and smashed a nail of his own. Other first words were blink-blanks expressive of the emotions roused by missing a deer with an arrow, losing a trout at the surface of the river, discovering a frost on the day set for picking the plums, being waked by an enemy with a stone club at 3 in the morning, fall ing through the ice while skating, los ing a favorite dog, finding that the hens had pip, or finding that the only she had decided to accept the plaintiff.

Brooklyn Eagle. Some Strange Fuels. I have eaten mutton cooked on a fire of broken mummy," said the sailor. "It was in Egypt, and the mummy was stolen out of a tomb. The natives are always stealing mum mies. They sell them in pieces to tourists, and what pieces they can't dispose of otherwise they throw into the bin for fuel. Mummy burns like tinder, but it's a ghastly fuel. It is as ghastly a fuel as the shoe lasts they burn in the shoemakin' town of Lynn, where the old-fashioned and discarded lasts, glowin' in the grates, look to you like amputated human trilbies. I have been in tannery towns where the fuel is leather chips. This fuel smells and smokes. Its clinkers too, formin* into big, solid chunks have to be brok en up with the poker every little while. In British Columbia, where fish is as plenty as air, they burn dried fish- when there's, no wood handy.
