State Board of Health Will Give an
Anti-Tuberculosis Exhibition
at the Opera House.
The Object is to Enlighten Public in
Means of Preventing and Erad-
icating White Plague.
The anti-tuberculosis exhibition
which is coming to Brands' opera
house next Thursday and Friday
under the auspices of the Minnesota
state board of health is the plan being
adopted all over the country for the
purpose of enlightening the general
public as to how to eradicate tuber
culosisto present the best known
means of prevention and cure in a
manner which can be easily under
stood by all. Much valuable in
formation may be gained from look
ing over the exhibition carefully.
The exhibit consists of numerous
photographs, statistical charts,
mottoes, etc., which are displayed on
the walls also window tents, model
rooms, etc. No specimens of diseased
organs are shown.
Local and outside speakers will
address the meetingsof which there
will be four in all, two afternoon and
two eveningand hundreds of
stereopticon slides will be used. The
opening meeting is planned especially
for the pupils from the schools. Each
program will be different from the
preceding one, so everyone should
endeavor to attend as many as pos
sible. This crusade against tuber
culosis should prove a great benefit
to the public.
Two Famous Coaches Fooled
Those two celebrated coaches, Billy
Doane of the Terriers and Frank
Goulding of the Alumni, scooted
down to the twin cities in Frank's
road cart on Saturday to witness the
struggle between the Minnesota and
Chicago elevens. And they saw it.
They were in their seats ahead of
time, and as the Minnesota team en
tered the field Billy nudged Frank and
remarked, "That's the Chicago fel
lows, and they look as if they would
lose." "Rah for Chicago!" roared
Frank, and Billy roared too. "Here
are the boys," said Billy, as the
Chicago team came marching in, and
there was another cheer, louder than
the first. "Want to bet, gentlemen?"
asked a man who passed along with a
big roll of bills. "We'll take a
shanc on Minnesota," said Frank,
and he and Billy bet an even dollar
or two.
Pretty soon the game was on and
the Minnesota boys proceeded to put
it all over the Windy city chaps.
Thinking that Chicago was scoring,
Billy and Frank looked glum, but
when the rooters set up a deafening
cheer, they cheered also, in order, as
Frank said, "to show that there was
no malice aforethought." The game
went on apace, the Minnesotas forg
ing ahead and scoring at every point,
but Billy and Frank were still under
the impression that Chicago was in
the lead. At the close of the game,
wihch terminated in a victory of 30 to
0 in favor of the home team, Frank
remarked to Billy, "We've lost our
bets, but I wouldn't mind that if those
Chicago blokes had not done up the
Minnesotas so badly. Let's go down
town. And they went.
Outside of the Journal office a big
crowd had gathered and Frank
stopped his machine to scan the bulle
tin board. Staring him in the face
were the figures: "Minnesota, 30
Chicago, 0." Can't make me believe
that," said Frank, "the blasted re
porter must have been drunk."
"Can't make me believe it either,"
said Billy. Shortly after they bought
a Tribune "extra" and in big figures
on the front page found: "Minne
sota, 30 Chicago, 0." Not satisfied,
they visited several hotels and made
inquiries they also asked the police
man on the beat. All told the same
story- Minnesota, 30 Chicago, 0.
"What sort of a job is this you
have been putting up on me, Billy?"
asked Frank. "You used to be one
of the star guys on the Minnesota
team, but you don't seem to know the
bunch when you see them. Or did
you tell me wrong for purposes best
known to yourself? I thought Minne
sota was losing all the time but in
stead the boys were winning right
"Frank," replied Billy, I believe
1 have untangled this puzzle. You
see the Chicago fellows' uniforms are
similar to the ones the Minnesota
-eleven wore last yearhence the mis-
take." "Well, I'll be dodgasted,"
replied Frank, and the two of them
stepped into a drug store to take a
Mmiiumti Historical Society
soda and incidentally to indulge in a
good laugh.
They both declared they would keep
the story a secret, but Oscar Wikeen
and Vernon Dickey, who came up
with them from Minneapolis, let the
cat out of the bag. On the way up the
machine ran into a ditch five miles
this side of Elk River and the services
of a farmer and his team had to be
obtained to drag the car out. This
caused a delay of two hours. The
party reached .home at 1:15 Sunday
morning still laughing over the foot
ball mixup.
Shot With 33-Caliber Rifle.
Roe, the 8-year-old son of Judge W.
V. Sanford, while at play in R. E.
Sanford's yard on Saturday after
noon, was shot in the right \eg. The
bulletfrom a 22-caliber rifleentered
the leg above the knee and emerged
about six inches above the point of
penetration. The boy's father has
the bullet, one side of which was flat
tened, probably from contact with a
bone, in his possession. It was found
inside Roe's trousers. Roe and other
children who were playing with him
heard a succession of shots, but it
was not until the little fellow saw
blood trickling down his leg that he
realized he had been injured. With
the blood came the pain and the boy
commenced to cry. Clarence Sanford,
the judge's cousin, who was not far
away,went to the boy's assistance and,
discovering he had been shot, started
across a clearing to a place where
he heard voices. There he found three
boys Sjoblom, Engebretson and
Devlinone of whom, Sjoblom, had
a 22-rifle in his hands. The boys said
they had been shooting birds.
While the injury was in all proba
bility inflicted accidentally, this is no
excuse for boys being permitted to
handle firearms. The law governing
the matter is specific and should be
more strictly enforced.
Swept the Wrong: Chimney.
A drunken chimney-sweeper at
tracted considerable attention in
Isanti on Tuesday. It appears that
men engaged in that kind of work fre
quently indulge in doses of "voice
tonic," and after making a deal to
sweep a chimney at the News office he
procured a ladder and got busy on
top of the next building. *A few
minutes later he appeared down stairs
and called on Dentist Anderson in an
effort to extract money without pain.
Unsuccessful in this, he went to the
back yard and was soon engaged in a
fist fight with Nils Carlson, owner of
the building, who happened to be in
town that day. The News building
had been entirely forgotten, and after
making a nuisance of himself around
town the chimney-sweeper was driven
out of the village by Marshal Schoen
rock.Isanti News.
Two Children Barned to Death
Two children, aged 4 years and 18
months respectively, son and daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cox, were
burned to death at Becker on Friday
afternoon last. The fire started in
the second story of the Dyson build
ing and the two children were playing
alone in the sitting room above the
store. Smoke was noticed issuing
from the building, and when a rescue
was attempted the flames poured out
of the door so fiercely that the men
were driven down the stairs and
forced to leave the children to their
fate. The fire spread rapidly and
totally destroyed the store and its
stock of merchandise, the town hall,
and damaged many other buildings.
The loss is estimated at over $13,000,
partially covered by insurance.
Princeton Potato Market.
Potatoes have been coming in
steadily during the week and prices
have ruled a trifle higher on some
varieties. Eighty-three cars have left
here since the last issue of the
Union, most of them going to the
southern states. This makes a total
of 845 cars shipped from this point
since the season opened, and
hundreds more will leave before it
closes. The majority of the farmers
have taken their potatoes out of the
ground, but the quantity marketed is
said to be small compared with that
stored in cellars and warehouses and
placed in pits.
The Chappie With a Gun.
This is the time of the year when we
occasionally see a city chappie, fully
equipped for the pursuit of deer,
alight at the depot and proceed
toward the Rum river bottoms, where
he has been told big game abounds
in great number. As a general thing
the chappie is attired in a natty hunt
ing coat of scarlet broadcloth with
brass buttons, a red cap decorated
with peacock feathers, buckskin
breeches and a pair of high patent
leather boots with fancy military
tops, while he wears gauntlets similar
to those worn by Governor Eberhart's
cavaliers. He also carries a fancy
gun borrowed for the occasion. As
we said before, he goeth forth into the
Rum river bottoms and sneaketh
around in the brush. Soon he
espieth a dairy herd in the distance
and crawleth toward it on hands
and knees. He gets within shooting
distance and a cow with crumpled
horns pricks up its ears and starts
toward him to investigate. He raises
his gun, his hands tremble and he be
comes so scared that he cannot pull
the trigger. He drops the gun, but
picks it up again and decamps from
the Rum river bottoms as fast as his
legs will carry him. He goes back to
the city and tells his friends that deer
are plentiful in the vicinity of Prince
ton but it is not safe to go into the
woods after themthat bears, wolves
and panthers lie in wait for the
hunter and that many men have been
killed. '__
Underrated His Ambition
A distinguished apostle of road
building was addressing a meeting of
farmers in the state of Washington
several years ago, just when there
was a contest going on for a United
States senatorsoip. The speaker was
not in the senatorial race, but his
speech so pleased one farmer that he
interrupted him:
"You're the man I want for
The speaker paid no attention to
him. But presently the farmer again
called out:
"You're the man for senator."
"My friend," said the speaker,
"you are kinder than you are wise.
Let me ask you a question. Do you
know the name of either senator from
"No, sir."
"Of either senator from Ohio?"
"No, sir."
"Of either senator from Virignia?"
"No, sir."
"Well, do you know who Julius
Caesar was?"
"Yes, I've heard of him."
"Well, now, a mere senator, even
from any one of the most famous
states, is not well enough known for
his name to have reached your ears.
But the Roman emperors were road
builders and, though Julius Caesar
has been dead more than two thousand
years, you know who he was. We
are here not to consider such a small,
transitory subject as a senatorship,
but such a lasting and noble subject
as road building and you have un
dervalued the importance of this meet
ing and underrated my ambition. Do
not interrupt me again unless you
have something to say worthy of the
occasion.World's Work.
The Old State Still Dry.
Maine retains constitutional prohi
bition. Of course everybody is in
terested in the way Maine went. Un
til Monday night the "wets" claimed
the state by a very small majority.
Then it was that Governor Plaisted
and his council decided to accept the
corrections in the vote of four towns
cast in the September special elec
tion, and reversed the "wet" decision
to that of '"dry." Returns on elec
tion day indicated a majority of 300
against the repeal of the prohibitory
amendment, but later the official can
vas showed a majority of 26 for re
peal. It was found by comparison,
however, that in four cases the figures
of the town clerks were reversed from
their early returns and in each case
the clerks said the error was in the
official figures. After hearings on the
subject the governor and council took
the matter under consideration, and
the result was the announcement last
night that Maine retained constitu
tional prohibition by 758 votes.
Chicago Thrown Down Hard.
Minnesota's football team over
whelmed Chicago on Saturday at
Northrup field by a score of 30 to 0.
Chicago was outplayed in every de
pratment of the game and made first
down only twice. Chicago never was
in striking distance of the Minnesota
goal. Minnesota made three touch
downs, Morrell made a place* kick
and Smith dropped two field goals.
Minnesota tore the Chicago line,
skirted her ends and worked the for
ward pass successfully almost at will.
Scruby, the Chicago kicker, did not
get a chance for a drop kick during
the game.
Terriers Versus Alumni.
Frank Goulding's Has-Beens will
line up on Thanksgiving day against
Billy Doane's Terriers at the fair
grounds, and at this time both sides
are confident of winning. The Has
Beens (alumni) are training hard for
the fray and the Terriers, who have
fully recovered from their recent
shock, are also putting in consider
able time in practice. Frank Gould
ing says, "You may make fun of my
'crockery-legged' eleven, as Doane
calls them, but they'll show those mis
named Terriers a trick or two on
Thanksgiving day."
Frederick S. Attwood, Grand Chan-
cellor of Knights of Pythias,
Addresses Local Lodge.
Noted Orator Will Deliver His Famous
Lecture on -'Happiness" in
Princeton December 12.
Fred S. Attwood of Minneapolis,
grand chancellor of the Knights of
Pythias, and known as "The Blind
Optimist," delivered an address on
Tuesday evening before the members
of Princeton lodge No. 93, and a
large number of the boys turned out
to listen to him. His subject was
"Fraternalism," and he handled it in
a manner of which few men are capa
bleevery man in the hall was spell
bound by his masterful discourse.
Mr. Attwood is both a logician and
an orator, and in many respects he is
a remarkable man. Apparently with
out effort he gives out those precious
gems of thought that are so helpful to
every mind. The Knights of Pythias
are fortunate in having so noble a
character for their grand chancellor.
On February 17, 1905, Frederick S.
Attwood, then 29 years of age, while
pinning an emblem on a newly-in
itiated member of the Pythians, sud
denly lost the sight of one eye and in
six weeks from that time he became
totally blind. "This," says he, "was
the greatest blessing that ever came
into my life."
Mr. Attwood was formerly a Con
gregational minister and later went
on the lecture platform, where he
gained much prestige. His lecture on
"Happiness" has brought forth many
deserving eucomiums from the press
of the country. This lecture will be
delivered in the K. P. hall on Decem
ber 12 and the members of the lodge
will ^ssue invitations to their friends
to hear this eloquent speaker.
The Pioneer Press says of Mr. Att
wood: "His lecture, which was heard
by an audience that packed the build
ing, was a careful consideration of
the sources of unhappiness with a
vifw of determining by elimination
wherein lies the secret of happiness.
Theaddress was replete with stories
&nd word pictures of true artistic
merit. His philosophy is that of self
help and happiness of others, and it
comes with added force from one who
has turned his blindness into a bless
ing to himself and others. Mr. Att
wood has a fine presence and an elo
quent and forceful address."
Minnesota Bred Horses
They are herea couple of carloads
of the best horseflesh ever placed on
the market in this or any other town,
including mares with colts by their
sides and some of the very finest farm
and general purpose horses obtain
able. These horses were selected by
my representative, who covered
hundreds of miles of country in order
to secure just the kind of stock that
the farmers in this territory are look
ing for. Every animal is Minnesota
bred, is young, and as sound as a
dollarthe sort that is bound to sell
rapidly. So if you are in need of a
team or a single horse for any pur
pose whatsoeverhorses that will
prove satisfactorycall at my barn
in Princeton and make your selection.

The American Goose.
The adoption of the eagle for the
national emblem may be all right but
it might have been better to have
adopted the goose. One walked into
a church in an Illinois town last
month during the service and drove
half the congregation out of doors be
fore flying through the wnidow. The
old gander was mad all over. It was
a case of nerves with the people who
fled from the church, showing that
they did not have the benefit of the
tonic effect of golden grain belt beers,
the greatest digesters and nerve helps.
Secure your supply of Sjoblom Bros.,
Even the Indians Want Roads.
Clarence B. Miller of Duluth, con
gressman from the eighth district,
visited Cloquet on Sunday and made
a tour of inspection over the Fond du
Lac reservation in his capacity as a
member of the Indian committee. Mr.
Miller found that the principal need
on the Fond du Lac is roads, as many
of the allotments have been aban
doned and many sold owing to their

in this vicinity is Wellington King of
Spencer Brook hardly a week passes

Ireland Deserving: of Cardlnalate.
It is gratifying to all Americans,
irrespective of church affiliations, to
learn that this country is to have
three more cardinals. The numbers,
activity, loyalty, generosity and zeal
of the American church deserve this
But we believe the Catholics of this
country will be sadly disappointed, as
certainly every citizen of Minnesota
is, that Archbishop John Ireland is
not of this honored trio. In ability,
in accomplishment, in churchly digni
ty, in devotion, he is the peer of any
of those chosen, and none can be held
in higher regard by non-Catholics.
John Ireland has done for his
church in the vast western country a
service which has been of inestimable
value. He has held it virile, vigor
ous, vigilant, without the slightest
friction with other denominations and
with a constantly increasing mutual
kindly feeling.
Appreciating the added dignity ac
corded by his holiness is mingled,
therefore, the regret that this great
man and zealous prelate has not been
chosen for this recognition.Duluth

Inherited From the Kitchen Cabinet.
Tom Noswal must be as innocent as
a sucking dove, which is not at all
probable, if he doesn't know that
when Eberhart took the reins of
government, the state, under the
management of the kitchen cabinet,
was completely dominated by the
brewery and all other interests. Gov.
Eberhart may not be anxious to
shake off that dominance, but if he
were he could not so easily do it as
may be imagined. It is a condition,
not a theory, that confronts us, and
that condition was brought about by
the kitchen cabinet's delusive slogan:
"Let the people rule." Tom Noswal
should let the people know the real
truth, for with the truth they will be
in a better condition to free them
selves from the heavy hand of the
shyster politicians that turn the busi
ness affairs of the state to the inter
ests.Slay ton Gazette.
Creamery in Sound Condition
The farmers' creamery of Foreston
is evidently standing firmly on its
legs. It is a young establishment but
its last quarterly report shows that it
is on the road to prosperity. Over
$7,000 was paid out for butterfat dur
ing the three months ending October
31 and more than $8,000 was received
for butter. The report shows a net
profit of $214.97 and $146.97 in the
treasury. Not so bad for an- infant
Postofflc to Change Location
The postoffice will be transferred on
or about December 1 from its present
location to the building formerly oc
cupied by Clarence Hill and owned by
Henry Newbert. Mr. Newbert has
been notified by the postoffice depart
ment that his bid has been accepted.
The contract, among other things,
calls for lighting, heating, furnishing
and janitor work, and the lease will
extend for a period of ten years.
Institution Flourishing.
F. H. Bartelt, buttermaker at the
farmers' creamery at Pease, was in
town on business Thursday. Asked
how the creamery is prospering, Mr.
Bartelt said that much more butter
has been made this year than last
and that the patrons are gradually
increasing. The creamery has a fine
dairying country surrounding it and
there is no apparent reason why it
should not prosper.
