ALMOST COMPLETED Finishing Touches Are Being Put on Creamery Building and Struc- ture is Substantial. Hr. Fox Expects to be rianufacturing Butter in New Establishment Within Two Weeks. There is every indication that the Princeton creamery will be manufac turing butter within two weeks. The finishing touches are being put on the building by August Jaenicke, the well i within the structure has been dug and the cement floor laid by Bergman Bros. Mr. Fox says that it will not take much more than a week to place the machinery in position and he will begin the work of installing the plant within a day or two. The Princeton Co-operative cream ery is a model structure, built in ac cordance with the very latest plans. Its main building is 30 by 40 feet and its engine room 20 by 22 feeta build ing of sufficient size, says Mr. Fox, to handle all the cream that will ever be brought in. Not only is the creamery a substantial structure, but when com pleted it will be an ornament to the village. A lawn and flower garden will be maintained on two sides and Mr. Fox will see that they are kept in good condition. Mr. Fox is not only 'an expert buttermaker but somewhat of a gardener. Farmers who have purchased stock in the creamery are to be congratu lated for their foresight and enterprise they embraced a good opportunity when it was offered to them. They will now be enabled to reap the whole of the profits from their butter instead of dividing with the centralizers. This will encourage them to increase their dairy herds and they will find that the more cows they keep the more ready money they will have. Some of the farmers have already purchased extra cows in consequence of the in stallation of the creamery. Co-operative creamery companies are being fast organized all over the statein fact all over the country and for the reason that this sort of creamery pays, and the best part of it is that there is no fear of the supply exceeding the demand, neither is there any fear of a diminution in prices. If the output were six times the present amount there would still be an inade quate supplythat is, of superior quality creamery butter. High-grade creamery butter always has and al ways will sell at a premium of two or three cents per pound over the butter of average quality no matter how much is manufactured. Princeton's co-operative creamery will have a good start with somewhere near 1,500 cows, its board of directors is composed of practical farmers pos sessing business ability, and it has one of the best buttermakers in the country to turn out its product. There is nothing then to prevent its being a successand it will be a suc cess for we feel certain that the farm ers will pull together. A BASS ACT. Ney Dunne of Jackson Shoots Himself While Temporarily Insane. Ney Dunne, captain of the 1908 foot ball team of the state university, shot himself with a revolver last Saturday on the streets of his home town of Jackson. He lingered until Sunday evening when death ensued. Last spring Dunne accompanied Fremont Woodcock home from the state uni versity and spent a couple of days here. He was a bright young fellow -and of a cheerful disposition, the last person in the world whom one would suspect of ever attempting to take his own life. That he was mentally un balanced, when he committed the rash act is the opinion of all his friends. Here is the press dispatch that tells the sad story: Jackson, Minn., June 15.Ney Dunne, captain of the 1908 Minnesota iootball team, who shot himself through the breast while in a fit of jealousy and nervousness Saturday is dead. After holding his own during the entire day and showing some hopes of recovery, the hero of many football battles passed quietly away last night at 10:30 o'clock. None but the near friends and relatives and his attend ing physician were at the bedside when the end came. While the shot plowed a deep furrow through the left lung, the physician entertained slight hopes for his re covery until the end, but medical as sistance and care brought little more than immediate relief to the sinking champion. From the time the fatal shot was fired, the well-known varsity man underwent the strain with the greatest courage and until the time of his death kept up his spirits. His iron constitution and wealth of vital ity, however, proved insufficient, and after struggling with death for almost thirty-six hours, he succumbed. Only a frenzy of temporary insanity can account for his rash act. Crazed by the humiliation of a supposed jilt from a girl whom he held in high re gard, the gridiron chief released his hold on life and a promising* future, and inflicted the fatal wound. Dunne had asked a young woman to attend a dance with him on Friday night, but was refused, the young wo man preferring the company of a bar ber in Jackson. After the dance, Dunne, with a friend, followed the couple for a short distance, and on coming up with them he drew his re velver with the probable intention of shooting his rival. At the moment he was about to fire he turned the weapon to his heart, and in view of his rival, sweetheart and friend, fired. REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION Opens In the Auditorium, Chicago, at Noon On Tuesday The national republican convention opened at the coliseum in Chicago on Tuesday and the scene which marked the gathering of the delegates was a lively one. Vociferous cheers went up for President Roosevelt and the inter est in the great meeting was keen from the start. Chairman Harry New called the convention to order at 12:18 o'clock and spoke as follows: "The hour has arrived for the rep resentatives of the republican party to meet in its fourteenth national ses sion at the end of almost twelve con secutive years of the most brilliant administration in the history of the world. There are those present in this audience today who participated in the party's first convention, and the accomplishments of that party within so brief a space in the life of men yet living are almosc beyond belief. We are here to assert our pride in what has been done, to approve the achievement of the past and more especially to endorse and commend the administration of President Roosevelt and those policies which, under his splendid administration, have become known to the people of this land as the policy of "square deal." A prayer by Bishop Muldoon fol lowed, the call for the convention was read by Secretary Malloy and Senator J. C. Burrows of Michigan was unanimously elected temporary chair man. The senator then delivered the keynote" speech of the convention. It was a masterpiece of oratory which advocated throughout the policies of President Roosevelt. Tuesday was given over principally to routine work but the enthusiasm which prevailed was intense, and the crowd, both in the convention hall and on the street without, was immense the largest which ever gathered upon an occasion of this nature. Yesterday the developments at the convention may be summed up as follows: Credentials committee report adopted and assurance given that there will be no minority report. Anti-injunction, woman suffrage, employers' liability and bureau of labor plank presented to resolution committee by President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor. Henry Cabot Lodge was selected as permanent chairman to succeed tem porary chairman Burrows. Strong vice-presidential fight in progress between supporters* of Cum mins of Iowa and Fairbanks of Indiana. The Burke resolution providing for a change in the basis of representa tion of states in republican national convention is defeated by committee on rules. At this time it does not seem prob able that the presidential nomination will be made until tomorrow, and the vce-presidential nomination will of course follow. Taft will be nominated for president and Cummins or Fair banks appear to stand the best show for second place. Rather Discouraging, Too much rain. The growing crops on the low lands and clay soil are suffering from too much moisture. The situation in many places, es pecially in the town of Greenbush, is serious. In many instances it has become impossible for farmers to get onto the'r land to plant potatoes. The small grain is yellow and stunted, and corn looks sicklythat crop is very backward. The phenomenal cold drizzly weather is having a deleterious effect on all field and garden crops, and bugs and cut worms are numer ous and active. At the present writ ing the outlook is far from encourag ing and a few days of warm, sun shiny weather would be a godsend. COMPAMUN CAMP Boys In Khaki March to Cambridge and Are There Royally Enter- tained by the Citizens. They Arrive at Camp Lake View on Monday in Splendid Trim for riilitary Maneuvers. Company started on Saturday, via Cambridge, for the annual en campment at Lake City. The boys were accompanied so far as Cambridge by the Princeton band. Before leav ing Princeton they were all lined up in the court house yard, where their pictures were taken by County Audi tor Whitney. Both the militia and band presented a real military ap pearance as they marched out of town. A short distance out of Princeton the warriors halted until they had lo cated the advance guard, when they renewed their march along the route known as the South Green lase-Cam bridge road. At 6:40 the company arrived at a suitable camping ground on Green lake outlet brook, about nine miles from Princeton. The camp was named "Camp Caley" in honor of the company's valiant captain. While tents were being pitched the cooks prepared supper, which in cluded a number of fried chickens, but hardly sufficient to go around. Sup per over, the band gave a concert and the boys amused themselves in various ways until the bugle gave notification that it was time to roll into their beds on the hard, cold ground. Next morning camp was astir at 4:30 and after breakfast the company had a short drill, which was followed by guard mount. At 7:45 the com pany, preceded by the band, fell into line and the march to Cambridge was resumed. The boys entered that town at noon with band playing and colors floating in the breeze. Every inhabi tant of Cambridge had apparently turned out to greet and welcome the boys and a reception committee of cit izens received them in a formal man ner and extended the freedom of the village. Tents were pitched near the railroad station and dinner, consisting largely of beans and coffee, partaken of. There were no chickens served at this repastnone within a convenient dis tance. Directly after dinner the Princeton ball teammostly mem bers of Company Gplayed the Bra hams on the Cambridge grounds and defeated them by a score of 21 to S. The principal feature of the game was the batting of Smith, who hit the ball into the next county and made a home run. He could, however, have easily made two runs on that hit. Supper was eaten at 6 o'clock, fol lowing which an exhibition drill, guard mount and dress paiade were given. The boys presented an impos ing spectacle and demonstrated that they were perfectly familiar with mili tary tactics. During the company's stay in Cam bridge it was most hospitably treated by the citizensthere was nothing too good for the boys in khaki. On Monday morning the boys pulled stakes early and were in readiness to board the special train carrying the Duluth, Eveleth and Hibbing con tingents which arrived at 4:30. A communication from Lake View says the special arrived there at 11:30 a. m. and that guard was mounted at once. Company G's detail consisted of Privates Albert Anderson, Alvin Anderson and Alvin Bemis, while Captain Caley was made officer of the day. The regiment in camp now con sists of twelve companies and com pany is one of the largest. Its po sition is on the right side of the sec ond battalion and visitors will be gladly welcomed. Death of Leona Richards. Leona, the 7-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Richard of Dayton, died on Sunday evening, June 7, after an illness of three weeks. Funeral services were held on Tues day afternoon, June 9, in the Catholic church and were attended by many friends of the family and the school children. The white casket contain ing the body was carried by six little girls and was covered with a wealth of carnations, sweet peas, roses and wreaths of wild flowers placed upon it by relatives, friends, school children and teachers. Leona Richard was one of the brightest pupils in the primary de partment of the Dayton school and a general favorite among her class mates. She possessed a ^lovable dis position and was in every way a model child. A father, mother, brother and sister survive her. PRINCETON, MULE LACS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1908. MISS CROWE WEDS Becomes Bride of Robert White, a Popular Rural Mail Carrier Residing at Ogilvie. Ceremony Performed at Home of the Bride's Parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Linton of Tolin. Robert White of Ogilvie and Miss Gussie L. Crowe of Tolin were united in mariage at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Linton, on Wednesday, June 10, at 2:30 p. m. Rev. J- W. Heard of Princeton was the officiating minister. A floral arch with a pretty back ground of selected flowers had been erected in the spacious parlor, and as the wedding march from Lohengrin was played on the piano by Mrs. Guy Ewing the bridal party took up a position under this arch. Marian Cater acted as best man, and Daisy Crowe, sister of the bride, as brides maid. The ring service was used and during the recessional, while a selec tion from Mendelssohn was played by Mrs. Ewing, the young peopie received the congratulations of their friends. A wedding dinner, which was par taken of by a large number of guests, followed the nuptial ceremony. The young people were the recipients of many gifts, among them being silver ware, tables, chairs, dishes, linen and other articles useful in housekeeping. There were present at the wedding many people from Ogilvie and Prince ton and two sisters of the groom, Mrs. Geo. 1$. Shipton of Minneapolis and Mrs. John J. Miller of Hanover, 111. Mr. White is a rural mail carrier on one of the routes running out of Ogilv-fp and his bride an accomplished young* lady who has for two years been engaged in teaching a large class in music. The Baldwin Flats to Be Improved Mr. F. W. Nickerson of Elk River, county surveyor and superintendent of highways of Sherburne county, was in town last Friday. He had been over the road across the Baldwin flats in company with Town Clerk Fisk and the supervisors of that town. There is every prospect that that piece of road will be ditched, graded and put in good condition this summer. Mr. Nickerson intimated that the county authorities would co-operate with the Baldwin town board with that end in view. All that is necessary to make that piece of road passable at all sea sons of the year is a little ditching and grading and mixing some sand with the black oil. In dry weather this is a splendid piece of road, but in the spring and fall, during tne rainy season, it is an impassable bog. Whatever improvements are made should be of a permanent nature as it is a much-traveled highway. Graduates With High Rouors Claude S. Morton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Rufus P. Morton of Brickton, graduated with high honors at the Pillsbury academy. Owatonna, on June 10. Mr. Morton was the saluta torlan upon that occasion and his ad dress was one of the most able ever delivered at that widely-known insti tution of learning. Throughout his four-year course Claude S. Morton averaged over 90 points in all of his studiesa remarkably high average for the classical course. He received special honors in Latin, and in the cadet competitive drill which was of four hours continuous duration, he was awarded the gold medal for pro ficiency. Mr. Morton, who is but 17 years of age, is an honor to his parents and the community in which he resides. He expects to enter the state university at the next term and there complete his education. Alias Dietz Starts a Paper, A newspaper named the Sentinel has been started at Cameron Dam with Miss Elmyra Dietz, daughter of John Dietz, as its editor in chief. The following paragraphs extracted from the first issue of the paper show that Miss Dietz is making an endeavor to give all the home news: Mrs. Hattie Dietz is fasting to re duce weight. Miss Helen Dietz had the misfortune to cut her right hand quite severely. Allie DeBroh hauled ten bushels of potatoes for John Dietz from Winter. Clarence and Leslie Dietz are busy hauling rooks off the new breaking. John Dietz is some what delayed in planting his potatoes, the ground being so wet, but other garden truck is coming up fine. Every evening one can see the beautiful deer feeding on the Dietz farm. Birthday Party. Yesterday was the birthday anniver sary of Mrs. F. M. Campbell and last evening many friends of that estimable lady gathered at her home to assist in the due celebration of the event. Among those present were the mem bers of the Dorcas society and the evening was very pleasantly passed in social intercourse. Mrs. Campbell was presented with a very pretty memento of esteem from the assembled guests. Campers at Elk Lake Park. Those camping at Elk Lake park during the week were Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Ludden, Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Eaton, Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Woodcock and family, Mrs. Jos. Craig and family. Mr. and Mrs. Benj. Soule and family, Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Small and son, Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Coates and family and Mr. and Mrs. G. I. Staples and family were at their cottage over Sunday. The number of visitors has been many and fishing has been fairly good. It is expected that the park will this summer be better patronized than ever. Every arrangement possible has been made by Mr. Pratt for the entertainment of visitors. CHILDREN'S DAY. Attractive Exercises at Congregational and Methedist Churches. Children's day was jointly cele brated with Flag day at the Congre gational church on Sunday and the program published in last week's Union carried out. The audiences were large at both the morning and evening exercises and the program was carried out in an admirable man nerthe children, each and every one, being thoroughly versed in their parts. Pretty indeed, was the living shield, composed of seventy-five chil dren, and the musical numbers were excellently rendered. Great pains had been taken by Misses Huse and Tomkins to train the children for the shield presentation and by Mrs. M. M. Stroeter to perfect them in the musical part of the pro gram, and the ladies are entitled to much credit for the work performed by them. Children's day exercises of a very entertaining nature were also given at the Methodist church, the program consisting of songs, recitations and special music. Very few Old Glories were flung to the breeze on Flag day by the people of Princeton, but the church decora tions in honor of the occasion were profuse. Improving a Sandy Koad. People who travel that part of the Princeton and Elk River road in the town of Baldwin between Jack Van Alstein's and the Battle Brook road can see what a little grading and a coat of straw will do towards improv ing a very sandy stretch of road. The oats on both sides of this piece of highway are growing nicely. When the grain attains a sufficient height it can be cut and a part of it applied to the traveled highway and part of it can be saved for future use. Next year the clover can be used for the same purpose, and eventually this will become a splendid piece of road. Drivers of teams and automobiles are earnestly requested to keep to the cen ter of the roadkeep off the growing grain. If the experiment proves a success, and we certainly believe it will, it will be demonstrated how easy it is to improve and keep in good con dition the sandiest of sandy roads. Gasolenic Disploder Collapses. C. A. Jack, who started on Sunday per auto for the state convention of pill rollers at Alexandria, experienced much difficulty in pursuing his course. He struck some mighty deep chuck holes and at times he thought his machine would surely give up the ghost. The spiral propulsion jiggers were thrown put of joint, the paral lels crankumtugs split and the gasolenic disploder collapsed. But Charley was equal to the occasion. He fixed up the machine with wire, binding twine and a tube from a cream separator borrowed from a farmer and managed to reach a repair shop in St. Cloud. From then on ail went smoothly. Dance Was Well Attended. Many people attended the dance at Elk Lake park on Thursday evening and, as visual, passed a delightful time. The evening was just right for dancingcool and comfortableand the orchestra was. kept particularly busy. This orchestra, consisting of Mrs. H. B. Fisk, Chas. Umbehocker and Fred Murphy, discoursed excel lent up-to-date music. Those who are fond of dancingand the majority of people arewill have an opportunity to pass many a pleasant evening this season in the spacious pavilion at Elk Lake park.- The Union will an nounce the date of the next dance. Catholic Church Sapper. The ladies of St. Edward's Catholic church will serve supper in the Odd Fellow's hall on Wednesday evening, June 24, from 6 to 8. A cordial invitation is extended to the public. tr VOLUME XXXII. NO. 26 A READYJtESPONSE Catholics of St. Edwards Parish Con- tribute Liberally Toward Em- bellishment of Church. Erection of a New Edifice is Being Talked of by flembers of the Church Congregation. Over $1,000 in cash has been sub scribed for the purpose of installing memorial windows in the St. Edward's Catholic church. This is more than is required to replace every window in the edifice, and the committee is highly gratified at the ready response. In fact the spirit of generosity has been so highly manifested that the build ing o'ia new church is being talked of. The church has, upon maDy occasions, proved inadequate to accommodate the worshipers and the congregation is fast increasing in number, therefore a new edifice is a necessity. To Father Levings, the genial, be loved and popular priest who presides over the parish, is due the success of St. Edwards church. He has, by his untiring efforts, succeeded in bringing the congregation up from a mere handful, figuratively speaking, to its present numbera number of which he might well feel proud. A liberal response would un doubtedly be made to a call for sub scriptions to erect a new Catholic church in Princeton. COMPANY WINS. Defeats Braham at Cambridge on Sunday Afternoon by Score of 21 to 8. The Company G. baseball team played Braham Sunday afternoon upon the Cambridge grounds and won by the decisive score of 21 to 8. Fred Haas, who pitched for the Princeton team, had all kinds of speed and had the Braham bunch hooked up proper. He twirled an exception ally fine game. In the seventh inning Smith dished them up to the Braham ites and also had them going. Then to show Braham that Princeton had plenty of pitchers Roos went in and sent a few fast ones over the plate. Jess Angstman caught for Princeton and too much cannot be said for his grand backstop work. It was impos sible to get anything by him and he went after everything and got every thing be went after. He caught men off the bases like a veteran and they gave up the idea of stealing. The boys all played well and drove the leather to every corner of the field. The features of the game were the pitching of Haas, the catching of Angstman, the home run by Smith and the stick work of H. Marshall, Clough and Cordiner. The score by innings: Princeton .10^60402 01 9 i Braham 100013300 7 6 Two-base hits, Haas, H. Marshall, Chouinard: home run, Smith: double plays, Umbehocker to Clough: time. 2 hours: umpire, Rogers: scorer, Firth. Those over from Princeton to see the game were: Mr. and Mrs. P. L.
