The wash out occurred at a point between Ashby and Dalton—about two miles north west of Ashby—on a stretch of level track where the trains ordinarily made a very fast time.

I thought a good many of "the fellows" were preparing for it the way they bought clothes and furnishings Saturday, and at the finish the sales total went a few notches over any other previous record and I met many new faces Sat urday that purchased goods of me for the first time and they paid the same price as the old customers. No pass words needed here. "WATCH THE GRAND STAND" See all the good dressed fellows watching'the game and bearing those $18.00 Suits they bought of me on the corner and saved $7.00. Don't those Blue Serge Suits I sell at $18.00 make the "other fellow's" $25.00 suits look and sound like a "foul ball?" "SEE WHO MAKES A HOME RUN" Every one of the boys on the home team that makes a home run I am go ing to present him with a $3.00 Roswelle Hat. I am going to give them a good one so that they can bat it around and still have a hat. If Roswelle Hats go wrong the $3 is yours. How about it when they go wrong at the other places? "YOU ARE SAFE AT FIRST" If you buy my imported Madras Shirts made to my own special order— 3 for $5.00 and I take all the chances. Today is Straw Hat day.' Well, it's a good day to break them in out to the game. My Straw Hats don't need breaking in, they have the new kind of sweatbands that don't hurt the head. Say a new Summer Tie and a Fancy Vest would brighten up your dark suit a whole lot. Try it. See me after the game.

During the severe electrical storm of last Thursday morning the light ning struck a large tree near the'resi dence of Mr. Ed. Roberts, a farmer living south of Crookston, and com pletely shattered it The tree was only about 10 feet from, the house and the shock and noise gave Mr. Roberts' family a bad fright Sparks flew in all directions and the wonder is that the house was not set on flre. It is thought that the telephone wire car- ried the electricity away from the house and that it grounded through the wire. The tree was entirely strip ped of bark and was badly twisted and torn almost completely off at about eight feet from the ground. Another Crew Is Ren.

'BOOST FOR THE CHT jlN SEASON AND OUT, THEN-WATCH GRAND FORKS GROW! SOI HUD GRAND FORKS GUSH TODAY ^First Game on Local Grounds This Afternoon—Records of the Local Players. the mm: itp. Grand Forks Giencke, rf Kellcy, If Hurris, 8I Ott, Ludcras, lb Wilson, 2b Leighty, sn Hentges cf Uebcau, Duluth— Mvlngstone, 2b (irticlmer, kn ODea, lit Barto, cf WcCormack, rf Lorett, 3b Ludwig, If Adams Treadway, Grand Forks devotees of baseball— the great American national game are witnessing the first league con test, season of 1906, on the home grounds this afternoon at Athletic park. The ex-champions of Duluth and the local team are battling for supremacy, and from accounts of the games of last week at Winnipeg, the home team ought to make a good showing, if not pull oif a victory. The management of the home team has no apologies to make. It has been working under a handicap in attempt ing to assemble a championship team in a few short days. It will be well pleased if the home team is able to win half of the games played in the first two weeks, as it will take at least that long to prove up the men, get them in condition, and strengthen any weak spotsthat may appear. On this account fans should not be harsh in their judgment, at least not until the men have been given a fair chance to show what they can do. Manager MeNeil and Director Stanchfield intend that Grand Forks shall have a team of which it can well be proud—if it takes all summer. Should the men not make as fine a showing as could be wished in the first week or two of play, the fans should remember that they themselves are to blame—and not the management Of the team. This afternoon's game will give the first opportunity of seeing the men who compose the local team. Manager McNeil has nothing but good words to say for them and their abilities. The following are the names of the players, together with a brief record of each: Lelghly, Leighty, who is to play short stop for the locals, needs no introduction to the Grand Forks fans. Last year he played with Crookston and made a good record. He has played a few games already this season with Bloom ington in the Three-I league. He and Catcher Ott were team mates. The Three-I league ,is over-run with play ers this year and the league is not the success that it was last year. Leighty will be captain of the home team. llarrlH. "Stub" Harris-is, perhaps, the most experienced and best seasoned player on the Grand Forks team, having play ed two years with Portland, Oregon, in the Pacific Coast league, in the Three I, and last season in the Northern league, with Superior. He is a third baseman, and batted over .300 in fifty or more games played last year. He is a first class infielder and will be a tower of strength. He has been play ing ball since February and is in good condition. Luderui* F. W. Luderus, the first baseman, is touted by Manager McNeil as abetter man than Spanton of last season's Grand Forks team. He is a first class player and has a habit of hitting the ball regularly. Luderus hails from Milwaukee, Wis. WUfton. P. .J. Wilson is second baseman. This is his first season at league baseball. Last year he played with Kirksville, Mo., and with the University of Mis souri at Columbia. He is a college chap and plays ball mostly for the fun of it, though he'hopes, also, to pick up a "bit" of money on the strength of his ability as a player. Kelley. C. H. Kelley finished the season last year with Superior. He is a fielder and is being used in left garden. For two years prior to his coming into the Northern league he played inde pendent ball with the York, N. D., team. Kelley comes from St. Cloud, Minn., and is said to be a good man. Theo. F. Hentges, center fielder, comes from Cherokee, Iowa, where during the past two seasons he has been playing independent ball. While his. showing in the games at the 'Peg was. a little off, he claims that he will be able to do better with a little mor^e practice, which he undoubtedly Gleveke. E. Giencke hails from Milwaukee, Wis. At present Manager McNeil is playing him in the right garden, but he will be used as an exchange pitcher. Giencke, by the way, is the only south paw pitcher on the local team. J. F. Bushelman ,comes from Cin cinnati—is a pitcher and was "farmed" to Grand Forks from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Last season he pitched for a fast independent team in Cincinnati, Ohio, winning sixteen out of twenty games. From all accounts he is able to deliver the "goods." Fognty, J. F. Fogarty, a pitcher, hails from Emeralds, N. Y.. where last year he played independent ball, winning 22 out of 24 games played—this accord ing to his own statement Fogarty Is the comedian of the club and is said to have deserted the stage for baseball. iGtkcm. H. J. Gebeau is also a member of the pitching staff. Last season he played independent hall with Hough ton hnd Iron Mountain, Michigan, win ning fourteen out of eighteen games played. He is doing the "rubber" stunt for the locals this afternoon. o*t. The gentleman with this euphonious name which, however, has nothing to do with his ftblllty as a player, is a catcher, is tpujted as first class, and Is experienced tat league work, having played In the Three-I league with Bloomlngton. He made a fine record In the games at Winnipeg. fi „j. V-j, ..* DEATH OF HON. A. 0. WHIPPLE Pioneer and Prominent Business Man of Devils Lake Passes Away—Came to North Dakota at an Early Date— Well Known in nind Forks. A. O. Whipple died at his home at Devils Lake last Saturday after an ill ness of many months, during much of which time he has been confined to his bed. His death was not wholly unex pected, as he had been failing for months and only his rugged consti tution and wonderful energy enabled him to fight the uneven baltie. In his death Ramsey county loses one of its foremost citizens, and the state one of the few men who have been influential in making it great. He was one of the pioneers of Ramsey county, locating in Devils I^ake when it was but a hamlet and establishing the First National bairk of that place, which has become the foremost fin ancial institution of that part of the state. To this bank the deceased gave his untiring energy until railing health compelled him to relinquish it to other hands. But it was not only in this one enterprise that he stamped his per sonality on the community. Coming to the country in the early days when the struggling farmers were battling for their very existence in a new and then untried countrv, he was ever ready and willing to extend the help ing hand to all, and many of the farm ers of that part of the state who are now enjoying the fullness of their wealth recall with gr.ititude the times when the help of Mr. Whipple and his bank saved them from the loss of all «s 4 He was heart and soul in sympathy with every movement that meant the upbuilding of the community, and while he never sought office his friends have repeatedly placed him in posi tions of trust and honor, and his fidel ity to their interests has been one of the remarkable strong characteristics of his life. As a man he possessed a high sense of honor, was frank and outspoken, yet wholly incapable of deception and never attempted to deceive even for his own good. His business integrity, noble personality, warm heart and manly disposition drew arounr'. him a host of friends who can pay him no higher tribuate than that he was al ways true to his ideals and never for got a friend. He has indellibly stamped his char acter upon the community which he has done so much to build, and no marble shaft will tell in words one half so eloquent the sterling worth of the man as the remembrance in which his memory will be held by those who knew him best. It is this which tells in words of living flame the character of the man who has passed from the time of earth to the eternity of God. To his family he has left the rich legacy of an honorable and well spent life, and the fullness of his strong and estimable character. t'OMIXG TO GRAND FORKS. Iowan Says His Wife Wanted Too Many Hats for Trip to Dakota. Waterloo, la., May 21.—Are seven hats—all perfect dreams—too many for a woman risking a trip from Waterloo Iowa, to Grand Forks, N. D.? Would they be too many if the woman's husband was getting a sal ary of $100 per month and was only $1,000 in debt? Supposing, in addition, there were, lingeries, fine dresses and other things to match the hats? Charles Louis Schellenberger, a traveling man, whose wife has sued him for separate maintenance, asking $75 per month ,thinks that seven hats for one trip are a superabundance, and says so in his cross-petition filed with the clerk of court Jennie B. Schellenberger is the wo man who has a hankering for lingerie, a fancy for finery and a penchant, for journeys, according to Mr. Schellen berger. 1 The answer and cross-petition Of the husband, in which he asks for a di vorce from the woman, is one of the longest ever'filed here in such an ac tion. It covers 14 pages of typewritten matter and is "live stuff" in every line.

He denies complicity and has retained Calder ft Germain to defend Mm. Meantime he is languishing in the county jail in default of a $500 bond.

On Saturday night Leo Olmstead, his brother Hiram, Arthur Patterson and John Murphy, all ranging from 13 to 16 years, made preparations for a! fishing and hunting excursion to the Turtle river on Sunday. The mother of the Olmstead boys warned them: not to take any fire arms along, but notwithstanding the injunction there were in the party when the accident1 occurred, two shot guns, the rifle' which caused Patterson's death and a 3S calibre revolver. At the time of' the shooting the boys were wading into a slough after a blackbird which' one of them had shot, young Patter son being in advance of Leo Olmstead who had the rifle. The gun, it appears, was defective and was discharged un expectedly. The bullet entered Pat terson's back below the left shoulder taking a course direct to the heart He-, walked five steps and then fell dead- His companions notified the nearest persons that could be found, who ia turn brought a doctor and notified Coroner A. L. McDonald of this city, An inquest was held on Sunday even ing and the cause of death determined. The dead youth is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Patterson of Mc Canna.

INSANITY THE CHARGE Wolfe Wirschawskj, Would-Be Sui cide, Arrested on Information Charging Lunacy—Hearing Being Held This Afternoon. Wolfe Wirchawsky, the Polish young man who attempted to end his life Saturday afternoon by drinking a potion of acetic acid, and whose en deavor to shuffle oft" was thwarted in time to save his life, is now said to be mentally deranged and to have been in that condition for some time past. His hallucination, according to the people with whom he has been living, is a peculiar one. He believes that he is slowly decaying and dying by de grees. Information of insanity was filed against Wirschawsky as soon as it was known he would recover and Sat urday evening he was arrested by Chief of Police Lowe and lodged in the county jail. Late this afternoon he is to be ar raigned in probate court liefore the insanity board and his mental condi tion inquired into. If it be found that I be is a fit subject for'incarceration in the state hospital for insane, there is every probability that he will be so adjudged and orders! committed. H. Greenberg of 830 Second avenue, where Wirschawsky has been staying, says that at times the young fellow will lie in bed and groan as if in mor tal agony, at the same time com plaining that he is dying. His melan cholia seems to have assumed an ag gravated form. In case it is proven that Wirschaw sky is not insane, he may be prose cuted for attempting suicide, as pro vided for under the statute.
