The Socialists were somewhat in the
limelight last evening at the council
meeting, a position which they apparent
ly relished and made the most of. Both
of the remaining Socialists were strong
on motions and seconds and repeatedly
rose to a point of order or information.
Their first climax came however when
City Auditor Jones read the resignation
of Alderman Calaghan, that a few mo
ments before had been impressively
handed to him by A. S. Anderson, one
of the Socialist officials who was rec
ognized by his red shirt. The resig
nation was dated Aug. 7th and stated
that Alderman Callaghan had ruii as a.
Socialist candidate. There were no re-'
marks for several minutes but finally
Alderman Harris caught his cue and
moved its acceptance, seconded by
Miller. Alderman Wineman asked
Whether the resignation was Calaghan's
wish and there was no answer from the
Socialists. Other members asked for
more facts concerning the resignation
but as none were forthcoming it was
not accepted and so far as the records
go Callaghan is still an Alderman.
Aldreman Miller, later, by a resolu
tion, started the ball rolling for Mun
icipal owned public utilities, when he
asked for a committee to investigate
the feasibility of a municipal coal and
wood yard, with an ica house on the
side. The idea seemed to meet with
favor and the Mayor appointed Alder
men Miller, Wineman and Johnson as
a committee.
W. G. Stoughton of Chicago is in the

berg bowling alley now is. In the fire
of 1SS4, which pretty nearly cleaned
out the town, his entire stock was de
stroyed. Mr. Stoughton, with charac
teristic bravery, telegraphed a whole
sale grocer in Minneapolis to ship him
at once a grocery stock complete. After
the fire he did business in a frame
structure, corner of Arnold and Fourth
street, now the Mann corner, and in
1986 formed a partnership with E. J.
Stoughton & Chamberlain for several
years, later moving to Chicago and en
gaging in loans and real estate. Mr.
Stoughton says that he enoys his visits
to Devils Lake and rejoices in the pros
perity that is everywhere in evidence.

ents, to be married at the home of her

It- is very noticeable and citizens
have remarked that for the first time
during the past year the crossings in
Devils Lake have all been cleaned off
after a rain storm. The heavy rain

weeks, but it is very noticeable that
within the past week the crossings have
all been cleaned in excellent shape.
Residents around Moore avenue and
Eighth street are particularly grateful
for the manner in which the crossings
have been cleared of mud, a feature of
metropolitanism that has not been en
joyed for some time.

A cheap and successful method has
been tried in Kent, England, for keep
ing the grass of the golf grounds close
and free from weeds. This has been
achieved by nothing less than the sub
stitution of the guinea pig for the
mowing machine and weed killer.
Round the lawn is arranged a low
wire barrier, and into the inclosure are
turned a number of guinea pigs or
better, a passage is made from their
liutch to the lawn. The animals at"
once attack all the worst weeds— the
plantains first, then the dandelions and.
daisies. These broad leaved plants,,
mowing machine will touch,,
are killed by the persistent cutting of:
the guinea pigs' teeth.
When they have finished the weeds
they proceed to the grass. In a short
time the lawn looks as if it had been
cut by the closest machine. No harm
is done to the grass.
In the neighborhood of Kent it was-'
found that the guinea pigs did not suf
fer at all by being left to the work in
winter as well as in summer. Indeed,
they were healthier than under the
usual treatment of those who keep
tliein as pets.
An astonishing demand for the an
imals has grown up in the neighbor
hood, and if -the inland golf clubs
which have great difficulty with plan
tains, take to the new method, the
guinea pig population is likely to go
up in the ratio that the natural fer
tility of the animal suggests. -«•.
