School closed for a two months' va
cation last Friday.
Several aggravating typographical
errors appeared in last week's paper.
The blueberry is ripe and many
merry parties are going daily in quest
of it.
The Princteon ball team has hard
work to get a game with other nines
this summer.
Mrs. Ida Howard, nee Gile, came
up from Minneapolis yesterday to re
main until after the Fourth.
J. C. Borden and family have re
turned from Philadelphia, where they
have sojourned since last autumn.
Jacob Ellenbaum came home last
week from the drive, making nearly
seven months' time since he went to
the woods last fall.
Mary Huse, her niece, Eva Ross,
and a young friend are home from
their school duties in St. Paul to rest
awhile this summer.
The Duelm boys came over and
played the "Irish nine" a friendly
game of ball this week and were done
up by a score of 23 to 10.
The band boys asked a little more
for their services than Monticello felt
like paying, hence they are not en
gaged for that celebration.
Locals are scarce this week. At 3
o'clock Tuesday afternoon one white
spring chicken was the only living
thing visible on Main street.
Plasterers, carpenters and painters
cannot complain for want of work this
season. Everybody is employed who
wishes to work, and at good wages.
Mrs. Guy Ewing started for Mis
souri on Tuesday. There will be
quite an exit of people from town this
summer, all expecting to return in
time to ride in on the first train.
The editor has been away from
home several days during the past
week and the readers are indebted to
Mr. Ewing for poetical and miscel
laneous selections as well as con
siderable original matter.
The band boys talk of putting their
instruments aside and of not making
any further effort to maintain the or
ganization. Don't do it, boys. You
have a first-class band for its size
and we earnestly hope you will keep
it intact.
B. D. Grant and wife came home on
Saturday and took up their abode at
the American house, until their new
dwelling is completed. Ben has a
handsome bride and may well be
proud of his success in the matri
monial field.
It is gratifying to note the step for
ward in our public schools during the
present school year. Some doubt
was expressed about the propriety
of establishing another department,
but the result has more than satisfied
those most strongly opposed to it.
There has been an average attendance
of 32 pupils in each department since
the new grading and the school is now
on as good a footing as any graded
school in the state.
Spraying Controls Potato Blight.
In the first place I have found that
thorough cultivation causes a
vigorous growth and tends to hold the
disease in check. But once it is
started I use bordeaux, and if applied
at the proper time and with care I
think this will effectively check the
disease. The potato patch must be
watched very carefully and sprayed
with bordeaux as soon as symptoms
of the disease are seen. The disease
is not transmitted through the seed
potatoes, as is the case with late
blight and rot.
Late blight or rot is one of the
downy mildews. have found that
some varieties are more susceptible
to it than others. It affects the
tubers, as well as the stems and
leaves, and spreads much more rapid
ly and does a great deal more damage
than early blight. Like other fungus
diseases potato blight is most de
structive in wet weather. A tempera
ture of 70 to 74 degrees is most favor
able, and if the temperature exceeds
77 degrees for several days the disease
will likely be checked. Blackish or
brown areas appear on the leaves,
and these soon become rotten and ill
I am particular about planting
clean seed, but no matter how much
care I take in that direction I always
spray with bordeaux just as soon as
the plants are about 6 inches high. I
think it is dangerous to wait until the
disease appears, because if weather
conditions are favorable for its de
velopment it may only be partially
checked, and great damage will re

I have some fine horses at my barn
sound, young animals suitable for
farm or general purpose work. You
will probably never again be able to

State News.
The first load of new potatoes to
reach the Minneapolis market was
hauled in by A. L. Hamilton of
Brooklyn Center last Monday. The
load aggregated 90 bushels and they
brought $2.25 per bushel, the highest
price paid in that market for 25 years.
Last week the firemen of the state,J
at their annual convention in Owa
tonna, denounecd the railroads for
not granting them reduced fares and
passed a resolution that hereafter it
would be well to let the railroads pro
tect their own property from forest
fires since they show no appreciation
of the work of the firemen.
Probably for the first time in the
history of any case a man testified in
St. Paul on Friday at the inquest into
his own death. By the aid of two
four-minute phonograph records, L.
P. Teegerstrom's account of his death
wounds received when he tried to
evade arrest and was shot by Detec
tive John Hammergren in St. Paul
June 15, was given in his own voice to
a coroner's jury.
Alfred Stringer, a Hennepin county
taxpayer, has filed a petition with
Governor Eberhart asking for the re
moval from office of R. J. Upton,
Frank W. Cook, C. W. Waddell,
William Knight and C. M. E. Carlson,
all county commissioners of Hennepin
county, because they have conducted
the affairs of the county "in a most
unbusinesslike manner, and that they
wilfully and knowingly transacted
business and expended money belong
ing to the taxpayers without authority
of law."
The case against Thomas McCiure,
brought by Crow Wing county to col
lect mineral reserve taxes of $2 an
acre on 2,000 acres, was heard by
Judge Stanton at Brainerd on Fri
day. Attorney George W. Stewart of
St. Cloud, for the defendant, said
there was no authority for such taxa
tion, and will file a brief. The case is
similar to that brought against the
Pine Tree Lumber company of the
Weyerhauser interests, which had 500
parcels taxed for mineral reserva
tions. The actions also affect town
sites with such reservations and the
state tax commission is interested.
Great Inland Harbor
The city of Chicago is going to
spend $50,000,000 for a new harbor
and incidentally the city will operate
its own tramways, elevators, and
loading plants as a part of the
scheme, charging shippers for the ser
vice, making a comprehensive munici
pal ownership to that extent. It is an
attempt on the part of Chicago to se
cure water a little nearer the purity of
that from which golden grain belt
beers are made, the purest water
known. Beer with poor water may
seem good, but it won't stand the test.

Copenhagen Snuff is made of the best, old, rich, high-
flavored leaf tobacco, to which is added only such in-
gredients as are component parts of natural leaf tobacco
and absolutely pure flavoring extracts. The Snuff Pro-
cess retains the good of the tobacco and expels the
bitter and acid of natural leaf tobacco.
