A Ateritea Excoriation
Our people who are favoring La
Follette for president should make a
note of the political leaders of the
state and office holders who deserted
him for Roosevelt like a lot of craven
cowards, to climb on the Roosevelt
band wagon, thinking to save their
own political hides, and see that they
get a well deserved panning whenever
occasion presents itself. Minnesota's
delegation in congress, led by the
bombastic Clapp, are in the lead in
the desertion and yet they call them
selves "progressives" with a deep
love for the "dear people" whose
battles they are willing to fight to the
finish if need be. We find it very hard
to express ourselves when we attempt
to voice our contempt of the political
charlatans who deserted their only
real leader at the very first sign of
trouble.Dassel Anchor.

Lion's Head Fountains.
Perhaps jou have noticed that the
water in a great many public foun
tains, whether for man or beast, comes
out of a lion's month. Did you e\er
stop to think why a lion's head should
be selected in preference to any other
design? Among the ancient Egyp
tians the rising of the waters of the
river Nile was the most important
event of the year as it meant life and
prosperity to the whole nation. This
rising of the waters always took place
when the sun was in the constellation
of Leo. or the lion, so they adopted
the shape of a lion as the symbol for
the life giving waters of the Nile and
all their fountains were carved with a
lion's head The Greeks -and Romans
copied this symbol and so it has come
down to us.New York Sun.
Various Cats.
A schoolboy", asked to write an essay
on cats, made the following amusing
and original statements:
"Cats that's made for little boys and
girls to maul and tease is called Mal
tese cats. Some cats are known by
their queer purrs these are called Purr
sian cats. Cats with very bad tempers
is called Angorie cats. Sometimes a
very fine cat is called a Magnificat.
Cats with very deep feelings is called
Feline cats."
A New Start.
"I told him there were dozens of peo
ple right here in town who had never
heard of him."
"I guess that took him down a peg
or two."
"I guess it didn't. He started right
out to find them and borrow money
from them."Houston Post.
Mighty Mean.
"She's the meanest woman I know!"
"What's the matter now?"
"I offered to give her servant $2 a
week more to come to work for me,
and, would you believe it, she met the
raise and kept the maid herself!"De

Death Calls Father of J. W Haitman
Edward Hartman, father of J. W.
Hartman of Princteon, died at his
home in Espy, Pa., on March 30, from
a general breaking down of the con
stitution due to old age. He was
born in Berks county, Pa., on De
cember 24, 1816, and consequently was
in his 96th year at the time of his
death. The Democratic Sentinel,
published at Bloomsburg, Pa., speaks
highly of the qualities possessed by
the late Edward Hartman, who was a
retired farmer. Not until two years
previous to his death had Mr. Hart
man ever found it necessary to engage
the services of a physician. He is
survived by his widow, who is 89
years of age four sons, three
daughters, 19 grandchildren, 15 great
grandchilrden, and one sister. With
the exception of Jas. W. Hartman the
survivors reside in Pennsylvania.
Shot at Briggg Lake
St. Cloud, Minn., April 6.Blanch-
ard Towne, the 20-year-old son of N.
C. Towne, a wealthy real estate dealer
of Des Moines, Iowa, was accidentally
shot and killed near Briggs lake in
this vicinity last night.
The young man, who for three
years has spent a portion of the
spring at the Nat Drew home on the
lake shore, started yesterday after
noon on a trip through the woods.
He carried a small revolver. He did
not return last night, and a party
started a search, finding his body this
forenoon, a half mile from the house
on the lake shore.
It is thought his foot caught in a
fallen tree, causing him to fall and
discharging the gun. The bullet
passed directly through his heart.
The Baseball Meeting
A number of the fans and ball play
ers of Princeton village gathered at
the city hall last evening for the pur
pose of discussing the proposition of
organizing a baseball team in this
village. Sentiment was strongly in
favor of the proposition but no
organization was effected. An ad
journment was taken to Sunday morn
ing when a meeting will be held at the
fair grounds at about 9:30 o'clock.
Anybody interested in the oragniza
tion of a good ball team should at
tend. Princeton has plenty of base
ball material, and it seems to us that
a ball team, second to none in this
section of the state, could be organized
here. Give the boys your support
and they will do the rest.

An Eloquent Flea tor Tatt
At an immense meeting in the Chica
go auditorium last Saturday evening,
Senator Charles E. Townsend of Mich
igan eulogized President Taft, declar
ing that he would be written down
as one of the greatest presidents of
the United States. Mr. Townsend
paid a glowing tribute to Theodore
Roosevelt and said he was one of
the most spectacular and most popu
lar presidents this country ever had.
Senator Townsend concluded his elo
quent and impassionate plea for Pres
ident Taft's renomination by saying:
I yield to no man in my desire for
genuine progress and reform, but I
confess frankly that I am not a pro
fessional insurgent. Notwithstanding
the too-frequent insinuations and
statements to the contrary, there is
much that is good in our government
and our constitution and it should be
held fast upon it the people should
stand pat. I do not object to a good,
clean political fight, but it should be
a fight for principle. I have no use
for guerilla warfare nor for that class
of warriors who scuttle the ship or
fire upon their comrades.
"President Taft is opposed by the
great malefactors of wealth, who hav
ing acquired their fortunes illegally
and having dictated to some extent
the policies of parties and the acts of
legislation in the past, become natur
ally angry when they are attacked by
this administration as violators of
the law and convicted of crime in the
federal courts.
"The president is opposed, also, by
the men who make a profession of
reform and who insist that nothing is
genuine that does not have their name
blown in the bottle. They have been
disappointed in patronage and insist
they have been neglected by the presi
dent. Some have great political am
bitions. There are others who oppose
the president because they believe he
is not strong enoughtowin.
I want to nominate the strongest
and best man possible, but 1 am not
willing to sacrifice principle for suc
cess even. Sober second thought of
the people will prevail. They will
compare Taft's record of performance
with the empty declarations of kis
opponents." "f-
