S Gleanings by Our Country i Correspondents GREENBUSH. Emll Zimple has already harvested his oats. He reports a light crop. Some patches of potatoes in this vi cinity have been struck by the blight. Relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Rocheford from St. Paul are visiting them. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Grow and family Sundayed at the A. E. Grow home. Stanley and Alma Wenberg visited at the Robideau home last Sunday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Reed of San tiago visited with Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Grow last Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Rehaume and family visited at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rehaume last Sunday. At the regular school meeting last Saturday night John Grow was re elected school clerk for a period of three years. Other business was also transacted. The dance and box social given at Charles Grow's last Wednesday even ing proved a success. About $10 was realized and everyone had a most en ]oyab]e time. Mrs. Julia Robideau, who has been visiting friends and relatives in this vicinity for the past two weeksj left for Minneapolis last Monday, where she will spend the summer. Clarence Grow has invented a very intricate piece of mechanism with which he is able to start a balky horse. The intricacies of the con struction will be fully described later.

Nevretheless "Hank" is not without a trained cook in the culinary department. Services were conducted in the Greenbush Catholic church last Sun day by Rev. Father Levings. The singing of the choir was exceedingly good and we only hope they will keep the good work up. The choir consists of Hazel, Archie and Harvey Robi deau, and Mrs. Louis Rocheford and her daughter, Octavia. We see by the Crown items that there is much attraction at that place for the Angstman boys. Why, cer tainly the boys play ball down there and most assuredly it is necessary for them to go there every Sunday. How about it, fellows? Wonder how many would ilke to hear from a Baldwin correspondent? Quite sure we all would. Long Siding went down to defeat before the fast Blue Hill team last Sunday. The batteries for Blue Hill were Cy Robideau and Ray Kaliher for Long Siding, Art Leander, Art Larson and Thorsen. The score was 15 to 7. Bill Doane umpired the game and, as is always the case when Billy umpires, it was free from all wrangling and rag chewing. They came, they saw, but they didn't conquer. Yes, out of the 44 votes cast for a semi-graded school in this district 10 voters came to the school meeting last Thursday evening with the firm intent to defeat such an important undertaking. But the better and the more far-sighted ele ment of the district turned out and 34 votes were cast in favor of the afore mentioned question. It hardly seems natural that anyone would vote against bettering the school conditions but, nevertheless, 10 votes were cast against it We heartily wish to thank Mrs. A. E. Gtow, who circulated the petition, for her trouble and, further more, we aie glad that her efforts were crowned with success. No doubt preparation for building the new ad dition will soon be commenced. A sufficient amount of money has been raised to build onto the old school house. Floyd Harmon was a caller at F. Wenberg's on Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Robideau spent Sunday at Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Robideau's. Mr and Mrs. Fred C. Beto and family drove to Elk lake on Satur day and returned home on Sunday.

Among the callers at Nels Robi deau's on Sunday were Vernetta Grow, Orphea Ross, Mabel Blair, Deloras Grow and Alma and Stanley Wenberg. Alma Wenberg has purchased a new hat just to punish her beau. There is now no room in the buggy for him and he will either have to ride on the rods or walk. Among the callers at A. E. Grow's on Sunday were Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Grow and family, Mrs. Peter Robi deau, Alfred and Harris Wenberg and Ray and Leslie Robideau. The dance held at Chas. S. Grow's on Wednesday evening for the benefit of the Catholic church was attended by a large number and all enjoyed the evening. A neat sum was realized. A baseball game was played on Sunday between Blue Hill and Long Siding and it was a fine contest. "Cy," the Greenbush pitcher, was on the Blue Hill boys' side and the victory was won by a score of 3 to 1 in favor of that team. Mrs. Whittier called on Mrs. C. A. Raiche on Thursday.

Las Saturday evening the school election in district 35 was held. Mr. Rhoinard and A. Christopherson were candidates for director. Mr. Christopherson was elected for the ensuing three years. At 11 o'clock a. m. last Sunday a number of relatives and friends gathered at the poor farm in Green bush to help A. B. Gramer celebrate his 39th birthday anniversary. The superintendent of the poor farm and his good wife were for a few minutes at a loss to know what they should feed so many on until they were told that each party had brought a well filled basket. A table was set in the pine grove near the building, at which about 50 persons partook of an excellent dinner. Various games were played, such as horse shoe and cards, and dancing was the main amusement. During the afternoon ice cream, lemonade and cake were served at intervals. All wished Mr. Gramer many happy returns of the day and it was midnight before the partv disbanded. DISTRICT NO. 50. Orrin Hamilton commenced haying on Monday.

THE PBINCETOK TJKIOK: THURSDAY, JULY 20, 1911. The camp meeting at Percy Harter's came to a close on Sunday evening. There was considerable interest mani fested in the meetings by the sur rounding community. On Monday morning a number of wagon loads of people left Princeton by train and three wagon loads who came from Wisconsin also returned to their homes. On Wednesday evening of last week as Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Duby were returning from Princeton their horses became frightened at a straw mattress which was being conveyed along the road by some of the campers at Percy Harter's. The buggy was overturned and its occupants thrown out aolng with the groceries, etc., which they had purchased in town. The horse ran on toward home with the buggy upside down, thereby frightening the team of Fred Eisner, who was a short distance ahead. Eisner's team turned off short and landed the buggy and its occupants in a gravel pit. Here the horses broke loose from the buggy, but Mr. Eisner pluckily re tained his hold on the lines and suc ceeded in stopping the frightened ani mals after they had run a few rods. Miss Rena Winsor, who was also in the buggy, sustained a slight injury to her foot from jumping out as the horses ran into the pit. Mr. and Mrs. Duby were slightly bruised and their buggy was broken, but no seri ous damage was done to either buggy or their occupants. SPENCER BROOK.

The time has come when men do not care to give playtime to work even for the government, and yet golden grain belt beers will always be allowed to work overtime in aiding humanity by their wonderful tonic effect and appetite giving values. A case will prove it. Order your supply of Sjoblom Bros., Princeton. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO The railroad will hardly be graded by the first of August. However, the contractors are rushing things for all there is in sight. The crops in this vicinity never looked better at this season of the year. Providence has favored this section of country. Albert H. Chute and Miss Mary Hoy were married at the church of St. Anthony in East Minneapolis on Tuesday afternoon. The Cambridge baseball boys say they would rather come to Princeton and get defeated than go anywhere else and win a game. There are more improvements going on in this village at present than at any time within the writer's recollec tion. The railroad is what causes it. Bridgman Correspondence.The following officers were elected in school district No. 11 at the annual meeting: George Deans, director Jas. Price, clerk A. D. Jesmer, treasurer.

About a mile and a half west of town T. H. Caley has a 125-acre field of corn that cannot be excelled any where in this state. Tom is only an amateur farmer but he knows how to raise a crop of corn. That wedding affair mentioned last week has been indefinitely postponed. Mike Mahoney and Ned Carmody were the parties to the matter, but Mike has changed his mind and con cluded to go further west for his bride. The road between Princeton and Elk River never seemed half as long and dreary, nor was. the sand ever so deep as it is this summer. Those who are obilged to travel that God-for saken road earnestly pray for the early completion of the railroad. Harriet Stanley and her little sister, Ettie, were drowned last Thursday in the Rum river, not far from the old cemetery. They were bathing and Ettie got into the water beyond her depth.

A tax of $1,500 for teachers' wages was voted and $600 to defray current expenses. It was also voted to have nine months' school the en suing year. Formerly there existed a good deal of bitterness in Cambridge against Princeton and Princeton people, but now that the citizens of both places have become better acquainted and understand each other better, all hard feelings have disappeared. This is as it should be, and we sincerely hope that the cordial relations existing be tween Cambridge and Princteon will long continue. Church Topics as i ,$. 4, ,$. Sunday and Weekday Announcements.
