Job Printing and Job Printing
IHERE are two kinds of Job Printingthat which is neat and
artistic and that which possesses neither of these qualities. The
Princeton Union makes it a point to turn out none but the former
kind, and the Union finds this easy because it has the type, machinery
and skilled labor with which to accomplish it.
Nothing Looks Worse Than
Botched Job Printing.
It is a drawback to the business of a merchant or anyone else who uses
it. Botched Job Printing suggests loose methods. Then why not use
the kind printed by the Union? It costs you no more and gives the
public a good impression of your business. The Princeton Union is
prepared to execute every description of
Commercial and Fancy Printing
at short notice and nominal prices. If you are in need of letterheads,
noteheads, billheads, statements, cards, posters, programs, wedding
invitations or any other work in the printing line, an order for the
same placed with the Union will insure its being produced in an at-
tractive and up-to-date style.

Hass' nine went to Milaca on Sun
day and played the first nine of that
place, but bad luckas they cay in
ball playingreturned and our boys
were dumped in the ditch. The score
was 9 to 1.
Nearly every man on the Princeton
team played out of his position,
which in a great measure accounts for
the score rolled up by Milaca. The
Milacas experienced exceptionally
good luck, for every time a Princeton
man hit a ball it went direct into some
one's hands. Walker pitched for the
locals and was touched up for 12
hits, while said locals were unable to
connect for more than four hits from
Wilkes' benders. Jess Angstman, the
Princeton catcher, played his usual
fine game and forced in the only score
the locals made with a clean single.
Jess is a promising young catcher.
More than thirty fans accompanied
the Princetons to Milaca but. no vo
ciferous rooting was noticed on their
part. The score by innings:

High Shool Game.
Last Saturday afternoon the local
high school ball team again defeated
the Cambridge high school team by a
score of 5 to 10. The day was an
ideal one for baseball and a good
crowd of spectators was there to see
the contest. Although neither team
showed any signs of playing pro
fessional ball, yet it was a contest
well worth seeing.
Cambridge came to bat first and
incidentally ran in two scores, but
Princeton was equal to the occasion
and evened matters up in its half of
the first and, in addition, got one
score to the good, making the score 2
to 3 at the end of the first inning.
Princeton then tightened up and no
scores were made for Cambridge until
the fifth, when another score was
chalked down, tying the score.
Princeton again scored 3 times, mak
ing the score 3 to 6 at the end of the
fifth. From then on it was Prince
ton's game in a walk.
Both pitchers worked well but
lacked support at critical times. This
game will end the season for the high
school team. The score by innings:

Strong Suspicion Rests Upon Individ-

Two checks bearing the forged
signature of P. L. Hoadstrom were
received here on Saturdayone at
the Princeton State bank and the
other at the Security State bank.
Each check called for the sum of
fourteen dollars and the names of the
payees were fictitious. The check re
ceived by the Princeton State bank
was cashed at a bank in Winnipeg
and the one received by the Security
State bank was honored at a Crooks

here returned the checks to the insti

notation thereon that they were for
It is clearly apparent that both
checks were forged by the same indi

that he obtained the blank checks in

Olson Detests Hypocrisy.
It is disgusting to listen to moral
lepers inveighing against Sunday
afternoon ball playing as "desecra
tion of the Sabbath." There may be
reasons for conscientious and scrupu
lous persons doing so but when de
generates, who themselves are ever
ready to desecrate any day in the
week, palaver about this or that day
being "desecrated" by a game of
baseball, words fail to convey a
proper measure of contempt for such
strainers of gnats and swallowers of
camels. Going about themselves with
beams in their eyes that make them
morally, if not mentally blind, they
make attempts at picking out the mote
from somebody else's eye in the
hope that they may not be recognized
for the whited sepulchers that they
are. Such ranting hypocrites ought
to be invited to get off the earth.

Will Rue tbe Day Tbey Left.
As soon as the farmers who have
left southern Minnesota, Iowa, Illi
nois and Indiana farms for others in
the Canadian west, shall have robbed
the virgin soil of that new region as
they have robbed that of their old
homes, by continual cropping with
wheat, they will be looking for other
lands to conquer. But, like Alex
ander, they will find that they are, so
far as new wheat lands are concerned,
at the end of the earth. Possibly, in
formed of this fact, they will turn to a
rotation of crops and to animal hus
bandry. Diversified farming can,
however, be carried on to decidedly
greater advantage in the states they
have left, on account both of a longer
season and of the greater accessibility
of markets. The men who stay by
the old homes, discard the wasteful
methods of the past, rotate, manure
and irrigate, and so make 40-acre
tracts produce more than did 160 acres
under the old system, will in a few
years hence be a long way ahead of
their emigrant cousins.Pioneer
