ORGANIZED25 YEARS The Zlon German Lutheran Church in Town of Princeton Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary. Revs. Fackler, Selz and Destinon As- sist Rev. OttoStrauch in Con- ducting the Ceremonies. With a large concourse of people in attendance Zion Lutheran church, in the town of Princeton, on Sunday celebrated the twenty-fifth anniver sary of its organization. There were services in the morning, afternoon and evening, and they were services especially appropriate to the oc casion. In the forenoon Rev. J. Fackler of Osseo delivered the jubilee sermon and took for his text, "Hitherto has the Lord helped us," I Samuel, 7:12. The afternoon service was conducted in the English language by Rev. C. Selz, the text of his sermon being, "Rejoice with trembling," Psalms 2:11. In the evening the congregation was delighted to hear the Rev. J. Destinon of Wausau, Wis., son of their former pastor, who delivered an excellent sermon. Rev. Destinon also transmitted the hearty greetings and congratulations of his aged father. The first ministers who worked among the German settlers in the town of Princeton were Revs. Vetter, Mende and Facklerfrom 3875 to 1882 and from 1883 to 1897 the congrega tion was under the charge of the crown pastorsRevs. Boesche and Destinon. In the year 1897 the congregation called its first stationary minister, Rev. Theodore Reuter, and Rev. Otto Strauch has been pastor of the church since 1901. Under his faithful guid ance the church has prospered and the congregation has erected a spacious and well-arranged house of worship. From a very small congre gation the members have increased until there are now 34565 voting and 280 communicants. Wiped Oat by Floods. The whole business district of Black River Falls, a prosperous Wis consin town of 2,000 population, was swept away by the waters from the reservoirs above Hatfield and Dell dams, 18 miles up the river, last Fri daynearly 50 business houses were utterly destroyed and hundreds of people rendered homeless. So far as known but one life was lost,that of a boy who went out to round up cattle,as people were warned in ample time to avoid the onrush of the waters. Hatfield dam, a solid concrete structure 50 feet high, is still holding without a crack although the water rushed over it for hours after the Dell dam had gone out. The tremendous force of the water tore away a hill of sandstone formation and forced a new channel. This relieved the pressure on the Hatfield dam and probably saved it. Black River Falls has appealed to President Taft, the governors of the several states and the mayors of all leading cities in the country for aid. A resolution asking food and finan cial help was passed at a meeting of the council and the appeal was tele graphed all over the country. Gov ernor McGovern has issued a proc lamation to all Wisconsin cities tor funds to help rebuild the city. The town will be rebuilt, not near the river as before, but on the high ground on the west, where it will be safe from the possibility of destruc tion by water. Orders for supplies and building materials are already being sent out. A Most Important Highway. Next to the Germany road the Greenbush-Glendorado road is the most important highway leading into Princeton and it is sadly in need of repairs at the present time, especially that part of it in the town of Prince ton. The ruts should be patched up without delay. We presume it is use less to call the attention of the village council to the deplorable condition of that road in the vicinity of Oak Knoll cemetery. No Danger at Brands'. The daily papers have of ate been calling attention to the dangers which surround people who attend moving picture exhibitions in tfxe citiesthe dangers from explosior 'and resultant fires, which are liable to at any time occur. This seems to indicate that the moving picture apparatus is not inclosed in fire-proof compartments. Otherwise there would be no danger. At Brands' opera house in the vil lage of Princeton the motion picture apparatus is enclosed in a metal fire- proof compartment in which the operator stands and manipulates the mechanism. Hence, in case of ex plosion, the fire would be conffoed to the steel boxthe operator wojuld be the only one who could possibly sus tain injury from an accident of this sort. People who attend the picture shows at Brands' opera house are in no more danger than when atvtheir own homesprobably not as much. DR. DUMAS CONVICTED. Arson tn Third Degree Verdict of Jury In Paposky Case. From Bemidji comes the news that Dr. Dumas has been convicted of arson in the third degree. The jury, which returned a verdict at 10:50 on Monday night, was out but an hour and a half. An indeterminate sen tence to the penitentiary not to exceed seven years is the penalty for the crime. The case will be appealed to the su preme court and pending the decision Dr. Dumas will not be sentenced to the penitentiary but will have his liberty by virtue of a $10,000 bond, which has been furnished. His sureties on the new bond are his father and C. M. Johnson of Cass Lake. After furnishing this bond Dumas was immediately arraigned and pleaded not guilty to an indictment alleging that he had procured Mike Davis and Martin Behan to enter the store at Puposky on the night of June 16 with the intent to steal personal property of greater value than $25, the circumstances not amounting to burglary, but being a gross mis demeanor. The doctor was allowed to furnish a bond of $1,000 on his own recognizance in this case. Dr. Dumas still faces a charge of conspiracy which has been lodged against him by the federal govern ment and which will be considered by the federal grand jury at a term to be held in Fergus Falls in November. He has given a $10,000 bond for his appearance when wanted in this case, with his father and J. W. Johnson of Cass Lake as sureties. George W Stewart Dies Suddenly. George W. Stewart, a prominent lawyer of St. Cloud, and a man well known to many Princeton people, as he attended district court here regu larly, died from heart failure on Sun day morning. Mr. Stewart was hunt ing with his son, Donald, near Pleasant lake when he suddenly fell to the ground. At first the boy thought his father had merely fainted and bathed his forehead in cold water, but shortly realized that he was dead and, going to the nearest telephone, summoned help from St. Cloud. Mr. Stewart was born in Bellevue, Mor rison county, and received his educa tion in the district schools and the St. Cloud normal. He was admitted to the bar in 1884, and formed a law partnership with Capt. Taylor which lasted until October 3, 1887. He then went into partnership with Judge D. B. Searle and later with George R. Reynolds, which lasted until January 1, 1890. On November 17, 1901, the firm of Stewart & Brower was organized and he was the senior partner in this firm at the time of his death. Mr. Stewart was a very suc cessful lawyer and gained a state-wide reputation. Hurrah for Old Hamline. Students of Hamline university more than hold their own with those of any educational institution in the northwest. Miss Marion Rob bins of Dodge Center, who is a mem ber of the 1913 class at Hamline, was awarded the $250 prize offered by a Mr. Harris of Chicago for the best essay on a socialogical topic. The contest was open to students of all colleges and universities of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. The subject of Miss Robbins' essay was, "The Prevalence of Crime in the United States Its Extent as Compared with the Leading European States: Its Causes and Best Means of Remedy." There is no better institution of learning in the Northwest than Hamline university. Presideent Bridgman and his corps of able and painstaking assistants have reason to feel proud of the splendid educational work they are doing. Graduates from Hamline are forging to the front everywhere. AT NORTHWESTERN HOSPITAL. A surgical operation was performed on Mrs. Archie Whitcomb by Dr. Cooney yesterday. Miss Carrie Nelson of Cooperstown, N. D., is at the hospital suffering from appendicitis and will be oper ated upon tomorrow. Mrs. Albert Kuhfield of the town of Princeton is at the hospital for medical treatment. Mrs. OleTolin and baby returned to their home at Tolin last Friday. TABLES ARE TURNED Elk River Footballists Defeat Billy Doane's Terriers and the Hon- ors Are Now Even. Milaca Tousleheads Will Try Issues With the Terriers at Princeton Fair Grounds Saturday. The Princeton high school team journeyed to Elk River last Saturday to again try conclusions with their old rivals on the football field. The red and white proved too much for the orange and black this time and sent them home with a 6 to 0 defeat chalked up against them. It looks as if the two teams are about evenly matched, as this is a victory apiece for each and the score in both games was the same, the home grounds and crowd being the deciding element in the game which tipped the scales in favor of the home team. Princeton played a stubborn de fensive game and held the fast charg ing Elk River offense in good shape most of the time, but the Princeton offense didn't seem to get working right Saturday, the signals got balled up, the forward passes went wrong and the onside kicks went out of boundsit seemed as if a regular hoodoo jinks had attached itself to the orange and black standard for this particular game. Elk River played a hard, consistent game on the offense and succeeded in rushing the ball many yards before being stopped by the Princeton defense. They played the old style game mixed up with a fake punt and quarterback runs. These latter plays they had down in good shape and Chase, their speedy little quarter, got away for many a good gain and scored the only touchdown of the game on one of these plays. It was in the second quarter and Elk River had finally worked the ball down to Princeton's 15-yard line and first down. Two un successful attempts were made at the Princeton line and, with third down and ten yards to go, Chase took the ball on an attempted swing around the right wing of the Princeton de fense. The play was blocked in this direction and, leaving his inter ference, he cut straight for the Prince ton goal line and straight into the hands of the secondary defense. But he was running wild and refused to be stopped and, after three of the Prince ton backfield men had attempted to tackle the flying runner and missed, he fell across the goal line for the only score of the game, going prac tically 15 yards through the Princeton defense without interference. At times Princeton showed flashes of a real offense, and especially so right at the beginning of the second half. They went into the game with a rush and the Elk River defense was brushed aside for a few minutes and Princeton soon had the ball well with in the shadow of the Elk River goal posts. Cheered on by the crowd the Elk River defense tightened and Princeton made one vain effort to circle the enemy's left end. With second down and ten yards to go, a fake drop kick was tried, but the ball went into the hands of an Elk River player and Princeton had lost her one chance to score. Notes. A fair sized crowd of Princeton rooters accompanied the team on the trip and did what they could to cheer the orange and black athletes on to vicvory, but the Indian sign was on them and it was Elk River's day to win. This is a game apiece and a third game is being talked of. A third game should be played on neutral grounds as home grounds and crowd would probably be the deciding ele ment in another game between these two evenly matched teams. As it is almost impossible to arrange for a neutral meeting place, it looks as if the football question between these two high schools for this year will have to remain a tie. Next Saturday the Milaca team will come down to Princeton with the one ambition in life of getting the Prince ton football scalp to dangle at the door of the Milaca tepee on the banks of the raging Rum. In all probability this will be the best game of the year, as Milaca always plays a hard game against Princeton and they have a squad of 24 or 25 men to pick from this year. They are also well taken care of in the coaching department, as they have two competent coaches drilling the football into them every afternoon in preparation for the com ing conflict. Milaca has already played the St. Cloud team, one of the best high school teams in the state, PRINCETON, MILLE LACS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1911. and held them to a comparatively low score and learned a whole lot of foot ball which they plan on using against their old Princeton enemies. There is diligent drilling away in the Prince ton camp, and although no great promises are being made, you may rest assured that the team which comes off the field next Saturday as victors will know they have been through a hard-played football game.

The cause of her death was attributed to pem phigus, a malady which is very un common. She was first taken sick on June 5 and gradually grew worse not withstanding the fact that several of the very best physicians were con sulted. Her sufferings were intense but she bore them to the end without complaint. The remains were brought to Princeton and from here conveyed to Greenbush, Mrs. Jesmer's old home, where services were conducted in the Catholic church on Monday morning by Rev. Father Levings, and the in terment was in the Greenbush Catho lic cemetery. The funeral was at tended by a large number of friends and relatives and the floral offerings were beautiful and profuse, showing the high esteem in which the good woman was held. Mrs. A. D. Jesmer, whose maiden name was Juliann Robideau. was born in Franklin county, New York, on May 26, 1848. She came to Minne sota in 1865, with her parents, and first settled in St. Paul, where she re mained two years, when the family moved to Princeton.

While her taking away has caused much sorrow to her rela tives and dear friends, they know that she has gone to a home where suffering abideth not. Mrs. Sidney JR. Jones. Following a severe illness of seven months duration, Mrs. Sidney R. Jones passed away at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. D. Starff, in this village on Thursday, October 5, aged 24 years. Death was due to tuberculosis. On Sunday afternoon at the Con gregational church Rev. Fisher con ducted the funeral services, and the edifice was packed with friends of the young woman who came to pay their last tribute of respect to her memory. The sermon was an impressive one and the Congregational choir rendered beautiful hymnal selections during the service. Upon the casket were arranged many pretty floral tributes, the offerings of loving rela tives and friends. The interment was in Oak Knoll cemetery and the mem bers of the Yeoman lodge, to which she belonged, followed her remains in a body to their last resting place. The pallbearers were members of the K. P. lodge. Among those in at tendance at the funeral was Mrs. J. L. Culver of Vinton, Iowa. Mrs. Sidney R. Jones, whose maiden name was Laura V.

Mrs. Jones suffered much during her illness, but she bore her pain VOLUME XXXT. NO. 42 with remarkable fortitude and re tained her sunny disposition through out.

All who knew her loved her, and she leaves many friends who will long remember her kindly face. Bally Day Program.
