for neat workmanship it will bear

Hereafter all passenger trains at
Elk River will stop at the Great
Northern depot only. Heretofore
westward bound trains stopped at the
Northern Pacific depot and eastward
bound trains at the Great Northern.

do, provided there was a depot. The
G. N. Elk River depot is one of the
worst on the line.

pany with M. M. Stroeter, to salt
pickles at the Princeton station, re
turned on Monday. Mr. Wall said
that this season's business did not
warrant his remaining herethat the
yield was too small to need his ser

cumber CTOP in consequence of the
drouth. Mr. Wall salted pickles at
the Princeton station last year.
Nels Robideau of Greenbush bas
raised two acres of splendid Early
Ohio potatoes by the so-called ''dry
farming" process. He brought some
samples in town on Saturday which
weighed two pounds apiece and were
as sound as a dollar. The yield went
150 bushels to the acre, but Nels says
he had to put in lots of work to bring
about the result. He cultivated the
potatoes four times and maintained a
heavy dust mulch on the surface of
the ground which preserved the mois
ture. Nels knows how to farm.
