A Warrant Has Been
Sworn for the Ar

Officer Unable To rind Him
Mtrfc BfpiM to Have lDlarwl
M Completely M ld th ood
In Store at Hancock.
Evidence enough has been forthcoming
to have a warrant sworn out for the ar
rest of Herman Sterk on the chaw of
procuring goods under false pretenses.
Accoidingiay Dunstan & tianchette for
.ome of Stork's many creditors had the
necessary papers drawn out before Just
ice Finn Wednesday evening and placed
them in the bands of an officer. Nothing
has been seen of Sterk since he left the
court bouse Wednesday afternoon, where
he underwent a severe cross-examination,
and the offleers have been snable to
ascertain his whereabouts. Sheriff Lean
wot out telegrams to officers in the out
lying towns, giving a thorough descrip
tion of the man wanted and ordering his
arrest should a person of his description
Bhow up, but up to this time no word of
his apprehension has been received.
Sterk seems to have disappeared as com
pletely as did the goods from his place of
business in Hancock. Sterk is the party
who failed in business so successfully as
related in these columns yesterdav.
The new cold storage building being
erected by the Roach ft Seeber Co., is
fast nearing completion, The structure
h a two-atory building, a 1x45 feet and is
built of wood. The outBide will be cov
ered with steel sheeting and the carpen
ters are now busv putting the same in
ni,P. The south side of the building
will be used as a cold storage room while
on the north side a neat office will be
titted up. The second story will be used
for living rooms. Tho business of this
establishment, which is a branch of the
main business located at Waterloo, Wis.,
has so increased in the copper country
that it was found necessary to erect a
building of their own, so that orders can
be filled at once, and without the danger
of the goods freexing while in transit as
is often the case in the wintertime. This
branch of the business will be under the
personal direction of Mr. C. V. 8eeber
one of the members of the firm. The
company deal principally in fancy cream
ery butter and cheese and eggs. Mr.
Roach is here superintending the struc
tare of the building, which it is hoped
will be ready foroceupany by December 1.
The directors of the Lakeside cemetery
association have very generously do
nated some lots in their cemetery to the
local camp of the G. A. It., and on Tues
day a committee composed of John Bo
gan; John Humel and W. H. Mason, ap
pointed by the G. A. R., together with
Mr. Daniel Crawford of the association,
repaired to the grounds to select the lots
wanted: The sites determined upon were
the reservation which contains about
one-quarter of an acre, and which lie be
tween the protestant and catholic burial
precincts. It is the intention of the G. A.
It. to erect a large monument to the de
ceased veterans in the center of the res
ervation next spring. The remainder of
the reservation will be laid out with trees
and shrubbery, the lots in eitbei precinct
to be used for burial purposes. The en
deavors of the G. A. R. to beautify the
last resting place of our departed heroes
will undoubtedly be appreciated and
helped along with liberal donations by
The case of Andrew Hendnckson vs.
James W. McKinnon occupied the time
of judge and jury in Justice Finn's court
ester Jay afternoon. It appears that
Hendrickson called at the Lake View
houBe, of which McKinnon is the man
ager, to interpret for one of McKinnon's
hired help, a Finnish girl, who bad de
cided to quit her position and wanted
her settlement. McKinnon thought the
settlement of the case did not require the
interference or services of an interpreter
and on Hendrickson being ordered off the
place and bis refusing to comply with the
same he was pushed off the premises.
This raised Hendrickson's ire and the
case was the outcome. After hearing the
evidence the jury failed to bring in a ver

An old time New England expression,
"getting the mitten," meaning getting
your offer of marriage rejected by your
" best girl, " has an origin in the oustOM
of the earlier days. One hundred year
ago glove-, were unknown in the country
towns; mittens were knitted and worn in
all families. If a young man going home
from singing school with the girl of his
choice was holding her mittened hand, to
keep it from getting cold, and took the op
portunity to urge his suit, if the offer
proved acceptable, the hand would remain;
if otherwise, an effort to withdraw the
hand would leave the mitten .So the suitor
would get the mitten, but not the bund.
There were large families in those days.
Sir William Phlpps was one of 2(5 children,
Benjamin Franklin was one of a family of
17. They rejoiced in some very singular
names. These are the names of one fam
ily: Experience, Waitstill, Preserved,

It Is Interesting to note that the dinner
hour has gradually moved from the fore
noon until evening. The word dinner Is
believed to be a corruption of six hours,
or 2 o'clock, the hour at which the Nor
man OOOOjOOron ate their principal meal.
A young man from the Maine woods vis
ited New York on a schooner and wrote
home t litis: "Hardly anybody hero eats
dinner at noon. Most of the folks oat
theirs at (5 o'clock. The rich don't eat
theirs until 7 or half past, and tho real
upper crust don't dine until some time
next day." Ho had evidently been
brought up to think 12 o'clock the proper
Saturday night was tho beginning of
tho Sabbath. Tho quiet hush that por
vaded the very atmosphere of tho house
suppressed the boisterous spirits of youth,
and early planted a reverent love for tho
Now England Sabbath. Everybody was
expected to go to meeting and stay through
both servioes. Some of the stanch men
rode in the saddle, the good wife on a pil
lion, with the baby in her lap, and the
next older child In front or behind. Every
first Sabbath of the month the deacon
could be -em cantering up the long road
with the consecrated jug for the sacra
mental wine dangling from his saddle. It
must have been a pleasant sight on Sun
day morning to stand by tho church and
watch tho worshipers as singly, two by
two, or in families, they seemed to rise
out of tho hills, from the east and from the
west, from the north and from the south,
for Sabbath morning all paths lod to
church, as all roads led to Home. In sum
mer time tho boys and girls carried their
shoes and stockings In their hands, to
save thorn from tho wear and tear of the
boonoi and tho lung, sandy paths. Among
the duties of the sexton was to turn the
hourglass. Tho sermon was expected to
close with the last sands of the glass.
How the children, and perhaps the grown
poople, watched the glass 1 Hut they wore
sometimes disappointed, for the old minis
ters bad great giii- of continuance. Their
wigs were full of learning, and as freely
as they had received freely they gave.
In 6M each meeting house had tho np
pendage of stocks and whipping post, nnd
In tOM place they voted, "That all per
sons who should stand out of the meeting
hOUC during the time of divine service
should be set in the stocks."
It was also ordered that profane swear
ing should be punished by sitting in tho
stocks three times; telling lies, a lino of
10 shillings or sitting in the stocks two
times. In 1685 an unfortunate benedict
was llnod for keeping house alone. A
man was fined for driving a yoko of oxen
five milos on the Sabbath day.
As long ago as 1745 it is said there were
bad boys, and tithing niou were appointed
to soo that they did "not play in mooting,"
and to keep the dogs out of the meeting
Mrs. Stowo gives a picture of the old
meeting house, which is tho best I have
found. "To my childish eyes our meeting
house wa? fashioned on the model of
Noah's ark and Solomon's temple. Its
double rows of windows, of which I knew
the number by heart; its doors, with great
wooden quirks over them; its belfry, pro
jecting out at tho east end; its steeple and
bell, all inspired as much sense of tho sub
lime as Strasburg cathodral Itself. How
magnificent to my oyes seemed the turnip
like canopy that hung over the minister's
head, hooked by a long iron rod to tho
wall above I How I wondered at tho pan
sis on either side of the pulpit, carved and
painted as a flaming red tulip. The area
of the house was dlvidod into large, square
pews, finished with a balustrade ton inches
high. Through theso loopholes tho chil
dren could watch each other and report
The mooting houses wero not warmed,
but the old and tho delicate carried foot
stoves, and betwoon tho servioes thoy all
repaired to a small building outside to
eat their lunch and warm their nearly
frozen limbs. The ministers wero settled
for life, and they were looked up to with
great respect, and well they might be, for
they were really tho only educated jtooplo.
In the very early days neighbors usually
paid friendly visits during the winter sea
son. In summer they were too busy.
The men talked over their family affairs
and the prices of what thoy had for sale.
The wtvos and daughters chatted freely
about their yards of homespun linen and
Hussy woolsey while they were busy knit
ting. It would have been regarded as
quite disgraceful for any woman to sit
idle. All were regaled with good dough
nuts, cheese, fins older or homemade beer.

USE OF THE DOLLAR MARK.
How the World Fell Into the Habit of
Putting It r lore Figures.
A St. Louis exchange calls attent ion to
tho singularity of our custom of placing
the dollar mark before the llgures, instead
of after, without giving the real explana
tion. A high authority says that the ex
planation is found in the fact that in tho
colonial times, when the word dollar was
Americanized, its equivalent was the Span
ish "piece of eight," or eight "reals,"
lator known as the " l ork shilling. At
first tho abbreviation for a dollar was the
figure g between two straight lines (8i),
and then t he t wo lines were drawn t hrough
tho eight. After awhile the H itself was
changed just a little, making the ngfl
stand as now in use. This is a highly
probable explanation. In all civilized
countries money marks nre In use, and
our St. Louis exchange t brows some in
ISMStlng light on the custom when it says:
In every country which has a written
language and a system of coinage the ab
breviation for the unit of value precedes
the figures. In England the pound mark
is used in the same manner that the
dollar mark is used in this country, while
the same peculiarity is noticeable in Ger
many, where the abbreviation m. (for
mark) appears preceding tho number, just
as the French abbreviation fr. (for franc)
is used in France." If tho abbreviations
aro not used, tho legend is more apt to be
correct. Wo llnd that in Mexico they have
a "2'a pesos" instead of "p. 24," as ono
might expect, and in Newfoundland thoy
have a plain two dollar piece. So, too, in
Franco, where the abbreviation is not used,
wo find such pieces as "10 francs," "20
francs" and "40 francs." In Germany
they have a pioco marked "X thaler,"
which is all very plain, but tho moment a
clerk, bookkeeper or other person makes
an entry or jots down a memorandum he
tells you that it Is a"th. X." Tho English
pound sign, which is believed to bo tho
oldest monetary abbreviation now in use,
is tho old initial letter by which tho BO
mans expressed "pounds," just as wo use
tho "lbs." It has been suggested that wo
use our money abbreviation backward b
cause the Itomans, in expressing ' ' pounds, "
always said "libra decern" instead of "de
cem libra, " the first being "pounds ten"
and tho latter "ten pounds." When their
initial letter or character was used, it al
ways preceded tho figure, thus "10," in
stead of the reverse. Thus the whole world
has got in tho habit of doing these things
backward. Hankers' Monthly.
