Say! Did somebody tell you that my claim to sell you
as good a $18.00 suit as you can get anywhere else for $25.00,
was a bluff? If yes, have you got the nerve to "call my
bluff?" If I can't, make good, I lose and you win.
You had better come in and see me this week. It's just
the time to select your spring clothes now from the largest
stock shown in any clothing establishment in this level old

MAY CHANGE NAME
OF WESLEY
cop
To Oxford College—No Plans
Yet Accepted for New Meth
odist Building Here.
This morning Dr. E. P. Robertson,
president of Wesley college, returned
to the cltyfrom a short trip to Enderr
lin and the Twin Cities. At Enderlin
he assisted at the dedication of a new
Methodist church and transacted busi
ness in St. Paul.
Dr. Robertson says that the plans o£
the new Wesley college building pub
lished in a local, paper must have come
from the architect, who gave the im
pression that they were to be accepted,
as he has not given out anything of
the kind and could not, as plans have
not yet even been submitted.
A large number of architects are
busy with plans, including the local
members of the profession. All these
plans will be submitted to the board
of trustees and a selection made. Dr.
Robertson has made a general sugges
tion to all architects and that is that
the general plan of the buildings or
rather the group of buildings be that
of a quadrangle, opening to the south,
the main building to face the opening
of the quadrangle, and that the sides
of the quadrangle be occupied with
dormatorles, president and professors'
residences, etc. The quadrangle itself
will be used for tennis courts or given
to the work of the landscape artist.
The building will doubtless take the
nature of such a quadrangle.
As soon as Frank Lynch of Cassel
ton, president of the board of trustees,
returns from California, where he went
for the winter, there will be a meet
ing of the board of trustees. If Mr.
Lynch does not return In a few days,
•toe meeting will be called without
him. At this meeting the nature of
the building will take more definite
form.
Bishop Vincent, at the recent mis
sionary meeting at Fargo, suggested
to President Robertson that the name
of the college "be changed from Wesley
to Oxford. The Wesleys were edu
cated for a number of generations at
Oxford and to make the connection
between the name of Oxford college
and esley, he suggested that a Wes
ley room be fitted up In the institution
and te filled with momentoes of the
great reformer. The suggestion met
with some approval at the hands of
Dr. Robertson, and it is mare than
probable that the trustees will make
the change. While there is no "Wesley
college in the United States, there are
a number in the world and there are
three or four Wesley or Wesleyan uni
versities. Bishop Vincent believed
that the title of Oxford would be more
scholastic as well as somewhat more
out of the stereotyped nomenclature of
Methodism.

BAD FIRE AT WINGER.
Soo
Town Visited by Devastating
Fire.
Crookston Times: Last evening
about 11 o'clock fire broke out in the
rear of Thompson's hardware store at
Winger and before the flames could
be checked, that store, together with
Wick Bros.' general store, were burn
ed to the ground, together with the
records of Town Clerk Lars Wick, not
a single thing having been saved.
In addition to the property loss, Mrs.
Gust Hauger was seriously injured in
making her escape from the second
floor of the Wick block. She, together
with her husband, reside on the sec
ond floor and the building was a mass
of (lames when they were awakened
by the suffocating smoke, and every
avenue of escape was cut off but
through the front window. Mr. Hau
ger jumped first and landed on the
sidewalk without serious injury. Lat
er his wife jumped and he endeavored
to break the fall, but was unable to
assist, her and she fell heavily, injur
ing her back. It is not known yet
whether or not her injuries will be
fatal.
The alarm was soon spread broad
cast over the little village and a bucket
brigade protected the balance of the
property, but. there was no attempt
made to save the other two buildings,
as both were a seething mass of flames
before the alarm was turned in. The
loss sustained by Wick Bros., as near
as can be learned, is about $8,000 in
surance, and the loss of Mr. Thompson
about the same with the amount of,
insurance unknown.
Winger has intended to incorparate
this spring, but the new code went
into effect before the application for
incorporation was filed. The new code
requires 200 signatures before a village
can be incorporated and the petition
as filed only contained 144 signatures,
consequently it will be necessary for
a new petition to be filed. The fire
will probably hasten the efforts to
incorporate in order to take steps to
provide fire protection.
It is understood that there is not a
single town record left in the office of
Yars Wick, and the postoffice supplies
which were located in the Wick store
are also'completely destroyed, togeth
er with some cash and several hun
dred dollars worth of stamps. There
was about $20 in cash in the Wick
Bros, cash drawer, and the money in
the safe has not yet been reached as
the safe cannot be opened till tomor
row.
WAS AIMIJGED 1XSANE.
Enst (Jrand Forks Sinn Will Be Sent
Buck.
Crookston Times: A man arrested
last Saturday at East Grand Forks,
whose name is either Thomas Olson
or Thomas Larson, was brought to
this city this morning and examined at
one o'clock before Judge Thoreson as
to his sanity. This case is one of the
most peculiar ever brought up here in
many respects. He is perfectly harm
less, bein? anything but of a violent
nature, llis rnly ambition and hobby
at the present time is to sleep, and
there is little doubt but that he would
outrival Rip Van Winkle if he were
left alone and furnished as quite a
place to repose as the veteran long
sleeper had.
It. was learned that he recently
came from Norway and is not a citi
zen of the United States at the pres
ent time, which fact necessitates his
being deported from this country as
he has not been here long enough to
participate in the privilege of being
a public charge. The state board of
control will be petitioned that he may
be allowed to stop at the insane asy
lum temporarily till the transporta
tion company is found that brought
him to this countrv, which will have
to take him back to Norway free of
charge.

T. T. Morken arrived in Crookston
last evening from his farm at North
