Thursday' Evening, "NOT LIKE THAT 3 IN OLDE N DAYS" EXCELSIOR IS A BUSY LITTLE BURG THIS WINTER. Instead of Hibernating, as in Former Years, the Town Is Wide Awake New Trolley Line Has Effected Won derful Transformation Winter Amusement Devices Talked Of. decided fancy to the ride an manv who in former years never thought of going to the lake from Nov. 1 to May 1, run out every week or so for a little frolic. The stores and restaurants, as well as the hotels* have tound busi ness picking up, and by the time the winter sports are in full swing it is believed there will be large doings in the little town. The lake is frozen as smooth as glass and the ice is now sufficiently strong to make skating and iceboating safe. Six men of the street railway crew from the camp on Big Island made the trip to Excelsior across the lake three days ago and found the ice solid and smooth all the way. The iceboat captains are getting their rigs in shape and planning for a long win ter's sport. Many ice-yacht owners who have practically abandoned the sport the last few years, are planning to get back to it this ear With the hourly service offered by the trolley, it is possible for the owners living in town to spend considerable time the afternoon and evening at the lake and leturn to town the evening. With a regular program of winter races, it is belie\ed the sport would bring many visitors and spectators to the lake thru the entire winter. There is some talk of opening a number of winter amusement devices. It is believed that iceboats for hire would prove popular and profitable and that a toboggan slide from one of the pavilions on shore to the lake Would attract many enthusiasts. The trip in. the warm, speedy cars is comfortable and many are visiting the village' just for the sake of the ride. The wait of fifteen minutes al lows a little walk about the business streets between trips. Several dan cing clubs have arranged for midwinter hops and suppers and have -been wel comed with open arms by the residents. A few kickers who thought the trolley would kill the town have have changed their minds and admit that Excelsior "was not like this the olden days." Excelsior is experiencing such a win ter as it never had before. In the good old davs, when there was no trolley, the town -went into winter quarters, and half its industries, especially the summer "soup foumlnes," hibernated much after the manner of the wood chucks and gopheis of the surrounding country, The opening of the trolley line has changed it all.

KENYON SAYS IT'S^W NOT GREAT TO BE CRAZY *f ,Jl f- "N o, I don't think it's great to be crazy," emphatically declared Arthur Keuyon, who was brought back from the state insane a Byhim today and is now awaiting arraignment on an indict ment charging him with robbery in-the first degree. Kenyon was arrested with Eobert O'Day last summer on a charge of holding up and robbing Ellington Cope Jand in Northeast ^Minneapolis.

"Iwant to join the navy because I'd rather fight tor the Stars and Stripes than for the Union Jack." With this sententious declaration William Arthur Wills, a 19-year-old English lad, ex plained his object in life to Judge D. F. Simpson today and asked his hono* to assist him. an reaching this goal of his ambition. "You see, my father is dead and my mother is in England," explained the energetic young man. I want to fight for Uncle Sam and I love the wa ter, but they wo^'t take me into the ser vice without the consent of some parent or guardian. I'm' up against it. I've only been in Minneapolis about two weeks and don't know anyone. They told me I'd have to come to the court house to get a guardian, and here I am. What can1 -_,.,. Willie Live, occasionally known as Whiskies, orandies, beers and kjndrecl Harry Clay Blaney, applied at the navy stimulants and beveiages are not food, but the law indicates that it is clearly within the province of the state dairy and food commission to regulate the traffic in adulterated liquors. The an ann'ouncement by Milton Trenham, of the ^commission, that inspection of liquors does not come within the prov ince of his department was received with surprise at the city hall. The law passed by the legislature in 1901, amending section 18, chapter 7, of the laws of 1889., expressly lnclades spirituous and malt liquors in the cate gory with sugars, syrups, vinegars, lard and baking powders, as articles to be protected from adulteration. Chapter 115 prohibits^the manufacture and sale of liquors containing drugs or ingre dients harmful to health, and "nor nor mal to the liquor. The penalty for such sale or manufacture is by fines from $25 to $100, or imprisonment for from ten to ninety days for the first offense, with a minimum fine of $50 and imprisonment for thirty days for subsequent offences. you do for me?" The lad was told that he would have to go to the probate court and he is now waiting to have the necessary paperB made out. Altho but 19 years pld, William is a man and a world wanderer. He left home when but 10 years old, and had worked his way by hook and by crook over part of Canada and the United States. I haven't seen all the United States yet, but I hope td," declared the young Englishman. He says he is a painter by trade, but at present is earn ing his livelihood by waiting on the table, in a local restaurant. He does not like the work and says he prefers "war's tumult rude and the deep bound ing blue of the ocean.'' He is an .athletic-looking youngster, and this morning was clad in a Salva tion Army iaeket and carried himself with a military air. "How did you get here?" asked Judge Simpson. Oh, I came by trains and boats and things. I can get anywhere I want to go "Why do you want to be in the navy?" "Well, I'm for the ocean. When I came over to this country I wanted to climb the masts and ever since I've been lonesome for fh blue waves." The boy was very willing to talk about himself and his breezy cleverness amused and interested those in the judge's chambers. Willie Live Tries It. recruiting office for enlistment today. Whether he was in search of "local color" or whether the exhilaration of annihilating the entire Russian fleet with a revolver while Admiral Togo, the tiger of the sea, smiles an approv ing smile in the background, has filled the popular actor with an ambition to enter the service, is the question Which is still perplexing the minds of Lieu tenant WettengeJ and his staff.

It passes my understanding. He came in here and acted as serious as the most willing recruit we ever had.

D., be lieves there is a bright tuture in store for his home town and for the country tributary to it. "Carrington is exceedingly prosper ous and growing rapidly," he said to a reporter at the Vendome hotel this morning. "Six years ago, there were less 500 people in the town. To- creasing. With the opening of spring we expect to see a great incoming of settlers. Th Norther line, which operates from Carrington, where it joinB the main line, has been extended the 'past season from Den'hoif to Turtle Lake, thirty-one miles. Next year it will go on further. This opens a lot of good agricultural land and gives the adjacent farmers a market. All the business of the branch, of course, passes thru Carrington. We are expecting to see a good class of American settlers come next year from the inquiries we have had, and laWd business will boom. I remember seven years ago I was able to buy land around' Carrington for $1.25 an acre. Today that same land readily brings. $15 an, acre, and is looked on as a^goodinvestment at that." The Northern Pacific branch! ?,ec^etary State Senator C. M. Buck of Fari bault was at the Hotel Nicollet today. "There's very little talk of the gov ernorship in my home city," he said, "tho I suppose before lon^g the guberna torial preconvention campaign will warm up. And as there is little talk, I cannot say how the sentiment ray district is about such candidates for the republican nomination as are now the field. The home of Senator Lord is not very far trom us, and for that reason there is doubtless a very friendly feel ing for him in Faribault." "Frank Eddy suggests," said the re porter, that leading republicans of the state meet in the twin cities and select a good man for the party to nominate. WhatMlo you think of that scheme?" I think it a pxetty^jood plan,1 said Mr. Buck. The party must staWd sol idly behind its candidate during the coming campaign to win out, and any division certainly,means defeat." A party of southern Minnesota lum bermen were guests at the Rosrers to day. The party included F. S. Bell, O. M. .Botsiord, J. W. Luyas and R. H. Jackson of Winona, and F. A. Kings ley of Minneota, "We are not here for any special purpose of public importance," said one of the party this morning. "It is simply & business proposition relative to affairs in the western wholesale mar ket, where we dolour buving, which we wished to come up here to look into for the benefit of our own purchases, and^kat is all there is to it." MT. and Mrs. E. G. Flecker"" wer guests at the Vendome last night and left this morning early for parts un known. The couple were married at Excelsior last evening and immediately their troubles began. Their friends (V waited for them at the Excelsior erd Of the streetcar line.
