Father J. Loosebrock left last week for Haverhill, Iowa, to which place he has been transferred. The transfer comes somewhat in the nature of a promotion, as the congregation is a large one although located in a small place, and with a fine large church Rev. Loosebrock's many friends, both within and without the church, regret his departure from Cresco. Father Wagner of Dubuque will succeed to the pastorate in St. Joseph's church. The "many Cresco friends of Miss Nana Sullivan will be interested in learning that she has been selected to play second parts in the Grace Haward Stock Company which opens the summer season at the* Metropolitan opera house at Minneapolis- on May 29th. Those who have seen Miss Sul livan work with the Frank E.

The subject matter of tha evening is of unusual in terest not only to lawyers, but to the public as well. President Taft has been urging in his speeches a reform of our legal methods, and the matter today has reached a stage where the general public is^beginning to realize that the question of legal methods is not to be ignored. Mr. Church haa given the matter considerable atten tion, and the evening promises to be one of interest and value. To Piano Contest Subscribers.

MA8SACRE OF WHITE 4ANCHEML, FEARED 70 MILES FROM A S E A 3 N TROOPS TO QUIET ABORIGINES Trouble. The Indians have cut all telephone and telegraph wires from Taos, but re ports received here indicate that ths depredations have been confined to an attack on the wife and children of L. L. Myers, a homesteader and the cut ting of fences and the theft of horsea and cattle. Further attacks are expected by tha ranchers and Judge John R. McFle conducting court at Taos issued an ar gent demand for troops to Governor Mills. He declared a massacre was Imminent. The uprising of the Pueblos, who for years have been a quet people, is be lieved to have been caused by the punishment of Pueblos by the terri torial authorities. For years the Pu eblos have governed themselves, elect ing their own chiefs and village coun cilors who tried and punished male factors of the tribe without appeal to the territorial authorities. For several weeks ranchers near Taos have found their fences eua and th^ir stock missing, but the discontent of the Indians culminated in the at tack, on the Myers household. The taking of the census is also be lieved to have caused much unrest among the Indians. When the enum erators reached Santo Domingo and San Dia Pueblos they were refused all information concerning members of the tribe and were threatened with violence. It was only after they had threat- j| ened to bring troops, and former Gov-"" ernor Curry personally assured the chiefs about the purpose of the. cen sus that the Indians were persuaded A to answer the questions. Several Eastern artists are believed to be in the-Taos country making sketches of Indian life. Taos Is the oldest and most picturesque town of the Pueblos. Powder Magazine Explodes.
