Maria Christina Johansen, was born in Sweden, May 22, 1845, She was marrried to John Ilillerson in 1809. To this union four children were born. They came to America in 1886, and settled in Valley City, later moving to Steele County where they have since made their home. Deceased departed this life at 2:15 o'clock on the morning of Jan. 31, 1912, and was buried Feb. 2, at the Lutheran church cemetery, Willow Lake township in Steele County. Her sterling qualities as a wife and mother can be no more fittingly told than are described in the following poem, read at her funeral: She has gone, a dear, good mother God has bade His laborer come To His home of many mansions, Angels bore her safely on. There again we soon shall see her, Garbed in white,with the Angel band Beckoning her children homeward To that glorious, heavenly land. She has served Him from her childhood Kind and patient she has been, Striving hard to serve her Master, And to Him her children bring. She has done her duty ever And life's battle she has won, When our Saviour softly whispered. "Good and faithful servant, come." On her husband, our dear father, May God's richest blessings fall. He, so long, has read the Gospel, Tried so hard to save us all. Now his steps are growing weary, And his locks are growing white. Many years he's served his Master, Doing what he thought was right. May God bless him and his children, As they walk the narrow way. They are left to mourn their loved one That God gave and took away. She has gone to dwell with Jesus In the pearly gates she stands, She, is resting from her labors In that holy, heavenly land.

ALFALFA (Supt. W. R. Porter) To insure a good stand of alfalfa, manure the land and put in a cul tivated crop or summer-till. Keep the lajid so well cultivated that the largest possible number of weed seeds will germinate. Let none of these go to seed. This will also store a large amount of water in the soil for the alfalfa. The following spring keep the land free from weeds with either Acme, peg tooth, or disc harrows. Do not plow as a compact seed bed is very essential to alfalfa. Seed northern grown alfalfa seed which shows strong germinating power and) which is entirely free from dodder. Seed it at the rate of 6 to 10 pounds per acre between the 1st and 15th of June. Inoculate by seeding screened soil from an old alfalfa field with the seed. Seed the same depth as flax. Do not seed with a nurse crop. Do not cut the alfalfa or allow it to be pastured the first season. If you get a good stand never cut or pasture it any season after September 1st. After the sec ond year disc every spring.

It. was growing dark. His road from the station was a lonely one, and he was getting along as fast as he could, when he suddenly suspected that a man be hind was following him purposely. The faster he went the faster the man went, until they came to a church yard. "Now," he said to himself, "I'll find out if he is after me and he entered the churchyard. The man followed him. Vagne visions of re volvers, of sand-bags and loaded clubs grew upon him. He doged around a rgave and his pursuer clubs grew upon him. He dodged detour of a splendid mausoleum. Still the man was after him, round and round. At last he turned and faced the fellow, and asked: 'What the deuce do you want? What are you following me for?" "Well, sir do you always go home like this. I am going up to Mr. Fitz brown's house with a parcel and the porter at the station told me if I'd follow you I should find the place, as j'ou lived next door.. Are you going home at all?"

The man under the bed business had fetched her. Here is a message of hope and good cheer from Mrs. C. J. Martain, Boone Mill, Va., who is the mother of eight een children. Mrs. Martain was cured of stomach truble and constipation by Chamberlain's Tablets after five years of suffering, and now" recom mends these tablets to the public.

If it wasn't for the womenfolks in his family, a man would never re member that he has ancestors. Whenever a woman asks one favor, she expects to receive two, and is dis appointed if she don't get them. A man's mother sees his good qual ities, his sister recognises his defects, but it takes his wife to appreciate his faults. You will very often see a mother liv ing on the bounty of a provident son, who will mention no one in her pray ers but the prodigal son who desert ed her. A man never buys anything that his wife does not say lie was cheated. She believes that all the buying sense in the world belongs to the woman. A woman never blames a man when it is possible to blame a woman. The subject nearest a woman's heart is the one she most studiously avoids. A woman may be religious while loving her children, but she can't be very religious and be very much in love with a man, When a girl has reached the old maid age and after she has determined not to marry, the coaxing smile dis appears from her face, and a look at once linn and independent takes its place. Women are too good to say bad words when they get mad, but they are not too good to think them. A woman will smile and say it's all right when you step on her corns, but she will feel a cuss word in her heart. Notice of Mortgage Sale.

HUCKSTERS' CRIES IN NAVY Ropes and 8ails on Turkish Fleet Are Named for Vegetables and the Result Is Amusing. London.—The discussion Incident to the present unpleasantness between Italy and Turkey of the unprepared ness of the Turkish fleet has recalled an unusual difficulty experienced by the founders of the original Ottoman navy. They were hampered by the fact that there were no words In the Turk ish dictionary for the various ropes and sails of the warships of that day. An ingenious officer solved the prob« lem by tying different vegetables to the various ropes and spars of the rigging, and the sailors received or ders to "Hoist the tomato!" "Let go the potato!" until a more formal vo« cabulary could be supplied. Novel as this procedure was, It waa not an innovation, as It was exactly the method adopted by Almeida, the Portuguese admiral and discoverer, when he was outfitting a fleet for just such a descent on the Turkish colony of Mozambique as the Italians made on Tripoli. It was at the beginning of the six teenth century and Portugal still lack ed a navy, and the Portuguese tongue was devoid of naval terms. This fact did not daunt the doughty Admiral Almeida, and, hanging up strings of garlic and onions on the port and star board sides, respectively, of his ships, he Instructed his helmsmen to "gais lie" or "onion" the helm, as necessity commanded.

Chicago.—"What Is your name?" asked Municipal Judge Dolan of a tall black mustacbed Italian arraigned be fore him on a charge of disorderly conduct the other day. "Goodmorning," replied the alien. "Good morning," returned the Judge with a smile. "But I want to know your name." "Goodmorntiig," again came the reply. "Is that all the English you know?" the judge asked. "Goodmorning, my name," replied the prisoner. "Jim Goodmorning, they call me in this country." "All right, Jim Goodmorning," the court said. "I thought you were Just trying to be polite to me. You are discharged. Good morning!" Unkind Insinuation.
