Tom has located it that is, Tom Kaliher has found the hay rake which mysteriously disappeared from the back of his barn some time ago. Through the columns of last week's Union he announced that some one had "borrowed" it and asked that it be immediately returned. "It was probably borrowed,'' said Tom on Tuesday, "but the gentleman who carried it off failed to obtain permission to so do. However, it is all right. A fellow phoned to me on Monday saying that my rake had been left at his place by a person or persons unknown. I found it about three miles from Princeton and was glad to recover it even though I had to haul it home. By jinks, it takes the Union to recover stolen, or rather borrowed, property. No other paper could have perfoimed that stunt. How much do I iowe you?" Fireman Killed in Wreck. Neil Campbell of St. Paul, fireman on the Oriental Limited, was killed and eleven people injured when the passenger train left the track, two miles west of Mebly, near Alexan dria, Minn., on Sunday morning at 4:15 o'clock. Five cars rolled down a high embankment, took fire and were burned. The softening of the roadbed by the heavy rains is said to be responsible for the wreck. Conductor McDermott, formerly on the Princeton line, was in charge of the wrecked train. Mac's many friends in Princeton and vicinity will be glad to learn that he escaped unscathed. Don't be a Food Crank. Because you believe in rational diet it is not necessary for you to be a crank. Don't be always pawing over your food and thinking how it will work after it gets into your stomach. That leads to chronic dys pepsiaand possibly insanity. What would you think of the captain on a big Atlantic liner if he should spend most of his time sorting over the coal, and examining every lump? Fix upon a rational mode of diet, and then "forget it." Start the list with golden grain belt beers, and that will help some. Order of Sjo bolm Bros., Princeton. An Indignant Widow. "Comeout to my place," remarked Mike Mahoney to a charming widow the other day, "and I will show you where you can get bushels of blue berries." She went.

Gates Threatens to Flop. Herb Gates came in on Monday to talk politics. "The old parties," says he, 'are both rotten and I am going to vote for Debs."

At a place called Anghin. about for ty miles south of Bangkok, a China man and his wife cultivated a small sugar cane plantation The man had been greatly annoyed by having his cane eaten by his neighbors' buffalo calves. Coming home one evening just at dark, he saw what he thought was one of the marauders at work on the cane. Stealing silently up behind it, he struck it a mighty blow with a heavy club. The animal dropped with out a sound The Chinaman told his wife what he had done and added. "That calf will steal no more of my bane." In the morning he found that the "calf was a full grown tiger. He had killed it by breaking its neck, just as the woman of Nam had done. And John was so much impressed with his own narrow escape that he took to his bed and was sick for a week.Youth's Companion. A Glass Neddie Stiletto. As diabolical a specimen of murder ous ingenuity as ever was discovered by the police was found one day in the possession of a Chinaman who had been working in a laundry in New Or leans and who was believed to have Intended using it upon his employer. It was a tiny stiletto, with a handle fcbout as thick as a carpenter's pencil and a blade four inches long of glass, pointed as keenly as a needle. A tiny groove had been filed around the blade close to the hilt. Suppose it was driv en into a man's body. It would be cer tain to bre*k off at the groove and leave three inches of glass deep in his flesh. What is more-, the puncture Would be so tiny that it would prob ably close at once and show no mark, hot even a single drop of blood Wouldn't Have Missed. As a battalion was returning from hfle practice at the ranges a shot was discharged from the leading company, apparently by accident, but the bullet Gassed uncomfortably close to the colo nel. "Look here," he roared to the cap tain of the company, "who fired that $hot?" "Sir," replied the officer proud, ly, "it can't be a man of my company", for they are all first class shots."Lon don Globe. Refined Rooting. The English root very politely.
