Schlee spent the past week at Buffalo, Minn., and attended the wedding of a neice. They went with horse and buggy and re turned home on Monday evening. Our farmers have had a busy time storing their potatoes in cellars as the cold weather came rather early this year. The sample of Christmas weather that we had Sunday was not greatly appreciated here. Owing to the extreme cold and stormy weather the first meeting of our Sunday school was not so well attended as expected. Twenty-nine were present and about an equal number were in attendance at evening services, which were led by Rev. C. Larson of Princeton. WEST SPENCER BROOK. David Anderson called at C.

On Mondav we saw some sleighs out for the first time this fall. Pretty early, the 13th day of November. Lyle Morton was seen going toward Bradford last Sunday. What is the attraction over that way, Lyle? The McKenney Bros, are threshing beans. There are lots of poor ones on account of so much rain last fall, but a very good yield. SPENCER BROOK.

Harry Blair was shot and almost instantly killed near Elmore while re hearsing a play he had written. The actors, all amateurs, were going through Indian parts when the acci dent occurred. Clarence Hessledahl had been given a revolver by Blair, and when the time came in the play for Hessledahl to shoot Blair he fired, thinking the gun was empty. Blair walked across the room in which the rehearsal was taking place and dropped dead. Blair, it is sup posed, thought he had unloaded the weapon before giving it to Hessledahl. THE TRUE TEST. Tried in Princeton It Has Stood the Test. The hardest test is the test of time, and Doan's Kidney Pills have stood it well in Princeton. Kidney sufferers can hardly ask for stronger proof than the following: Mrs. S. Farringfcon, Princeton, Minn., says: "About two years ago my kidneys began to act sluggishly. My back pained me almost constantly and my head never ceased to ache. I did not rest well, had a poor appetite and was nervous. My mother finally got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills for me and after using them a short time, I was entirely relieved." (Statement given in September, 1907.) AFTER THREE YEARS. Mrs. Farrington was interviewed on September 22, 1910, and she added to the above: I can still endorse Doan's Kidney Pills in the highest terms. My advice to anyone afflicted with kidney complaint is to give this remedy a trial." For sale by all dealers or upon re ceipt of price, 50 cents.

GOODWIN, Morteaepp Attorney for Moi tgagee in said morteaee URGESWOMENTO WORK FOR PEACE Taft Appeals to Them to Sop port His Arbitration Treaties, THEY SUFFER MORE IN WAR, President In Magazine Article Over His Own Signature Says He Will Not Shirk Fight With Senate if Necessary to Insure Success. President Taft over his own signa ture in the Woman's Home Compan ion makes an appeal to the women of the nation to come to the support of the arbitration treaties. The presi dent declares that women are vitally interested in questions of peace and war and that in war they suffer even more than men do. He urges, there fore, that the voice of the women of this country shall speak for peace. "On the evil of war and what fol lows in its train I need not dwell," says he. "We could not have a higher object than the adoption of any proper and honorable means which would lessen the chance af armed conflicts. Men endure great physical hardships in camp and on the battlefield. "In our civil war the death roll in the Union army alone reached the ap palling aggregate of 3o9,000. But the suffering and perils of the men in the field, distressing as t^ey are to con template, are slight in comparison with the woes and anguish of the wo men who are left behind. The hope that husband, brother, father, son. may be spared the tragic end which all soldiers risk when they respond to their country's call buoys them up in their privations and heartbreaking loneli ness, but theirs is the deepest pain, for the most poignant suffering is mental rather than physical. No pension com pensates for the loss of husband, son or father. The glory of death in bat tle does not feed the orphaned chil dren, nor does the pomp and circum stance of war clothe them. The voice of the women of America should speak for peace Ready to Fight It Out. Reciting the fact that a majority of the senate's committee on foreign re lations has concluded that the proposed arbitration treaties with Great Britain and France, as presented to the senate for ratification, infringe in one respect on its constitutional prerogatives, the president says that this view is, in his judgment, erroneous. He contends that the objection raised by the ma jority has already been answered by an able minority and expresses the hope that reflection on the part of the senators who are neutral or even hos tile to the treaties will convince them of their error. "But while the majority of the com mittee remains to be persuaded," says he, "the issue should be thoroughly understood by the American people, to whom both branches of the federal gomernment are accountable and whose judgment in some effective and unequivocal way will record itself." The president points out that he is not by any means seeking a fight with the senate, but he doesn't say he will shirk one if necessary to the success of the treaties. He continues "I am far from desiring a contest with the senate. I am one of those who appreciate most highly the plan of government devised by our forefa thers in the constitution. I think that one of the most admirable features of that framework is the senate with its various functions, and I should be the last to seek to deprive it of any of them What New Treaties Mean. "The executive has powers in re spect to treaties equal at least to those of the senate, and if these treaties de prive the senate of any power it can not delegate they deprive the execu tive of the same power. It is my duty tc be as careful not to give up any power intrusted to me by the constitu tion and not to yield to any encroach ment upon it as the senate ought to be in respect of its constitutional facul ties. Charged as 1 am with this duty of guarding executive power. I cannot for the life of me see any improper parting with any power in the mak ing of these treaties.

"True as the needle to the pole." like many another popular saying, conveys a distinctly erroneous impression. In order to keep itself duly informed as to the unfaithfulness of the needle to the pole, or, technically, the "variation of the compass" from the true north, our government maintains a division of terrestrial magnetism. Not only does the magnetic needle vary at different places, but the varia tion changes from year to year and even at different times in the day. On magnetic survey charts those places which at a particular time have the same amount of variation are connect ed by what is known as an isogonic, or equal variation line Through these points on the map in which there is no variation of the needle from the true north a line known as the agonic passes. Iron deposits and mountain ranges modify the action of the unknown causes of the periodical variation and cause these lines to become even more crooked than those which mark equal temperatures, known as isothermal lines. Isogonic charts may be accurate to day and full of small errors in a few years. The famous Mason and Dixon's line between Pennsylvania and alary land, which was surveyed in the years 1763 to 1767, was run by the stars and not by the needle, a great piece of foresight in that day. If it had been surveyed by the compass in 1800 it would have shown a deviation in some places of two miles, and had the line been run by uncorrected compass a hundred years later, in 1900, the varia tion would have reached nearly nine teen miles to the south and the rich coal fields of two Maryland counties would have been thrown into Pennsyl vania. The discovery of the magnetic needle's shortcomings is believed to have been made during the voyage of Columbus The disclosure constitutes a high tribute to the scientific percep tions of that day, even though it spread consternation among the ships' crews Harper's.

And really one is led to wonder which is the true Paganinithe miser or the kind artist giving his talent to assist a poor servant girl. One morning the maid who waited on him in Paris came to him. weeping, and told how her lover had been conscripted and sent away to the war, and she, of course, was too poor to buy a substi tute for him. Paganini resolved to aid the girl and took a unique way to do it. He pro cured a wooden shoe and so fashioned it that it could be strung up and played like a fiddle. Then he adver tised that he would give a concert and play five pieces on the violin and five on a wooden shoe. Of course this strange announcement drew a good house. The violinist had given the girl tickets to the concert, and after it was over he went to her, and, pouring 20,000 francs into her lap. he told her that she could now purchase a substitute for her sweetheart and with the re mainder set up housekeeping. He also gave her the wooden shoe that had brought her such good fortune and told her to sell it. Of course this curi ous instrument brought her a goodly sum, which she added to the amount which was to bring her domestic hap piness.W.
