A new irra, under the name of Dei
ber and 'erich Bros., took possession
of the Paoizke & John grocery store
Monday. The ice ^be of the new
firm are t-xpc nced h-ipin^ss men.
Henry Dei ber was employed as floor
clerk by the Andew cSchoch (iocery

Kerich, was a jestdent cf this city

of the shoe department of Ihe Golden
Rule store in Sc. Paul. John Kerich
bas held a position with the firm of
Ellenbecker & Goulet for the past ten
jears aid is thoroughly acquainted
with the city and coantry trade.
The dtal whereby the members of
the new firm became the proprietors of
the Pantzke & John' store was com­
pleted Saturday and the new firm took
possession Monday morning.
Pantzke & John have had a splendid
trade ever since they have been in
business, having bought out John Bill
-stein's grocery stock in th9 spring of
19n4. They havs both received very
flattering propositions in other lines
and this is given as the only reason
for their selling out.
It is being whispered around that
we sell the best shoes in this city. That
is right, too, judging from the number
of shoes we sell They certainly must
be the best, as you can sell a man a bad
article onoe but you won't sell him an­
other. We sell the same people for
years and are getting
New Customers Every Day
We sell the best shoes in town,
and we are safe in saying that we sell
more shoes than any other store in
town. If you buy our shoes you will
understand why. We give our cus­
tomers the best shoes their money can
buy anywhere on earth, keep our styles
right up to the hour, give special and
expert attention to fitting. Buy your
shoes at our store and you will always
wear good shoes.

The Mississippi river reached its
highest head of water at Little Falls
Saturday, when the 25 foot level was
reco*de4, which was within a half a
foot of being as large ahead as ever
was recorded here. The main -sluice
has been closed during the winter and
flash boards had been placed on part
of tbe dam, which held back a con­
siderable head of water. The three
small rivers between here and Brain
erd have been discharging a great deal
of water and this together with tbe
breaking of the ice was the cause of
large head of water Saturday, as there
has been very little increase in Brain
erd. The ice formed a jam in some
places, north of the upper bridge to
the height of twenty feet and was
jamed up for about a mile. At Mreen
Prairie a large tract of land was flood­
ed with about our feet of water. The
river fell about eight inches between
Saturday and Monday morning, but
to rise again Tuesday, and
thought to
at the 25 ft. level
tnlght be reached again. The force
of2th9 water was so great that it tip­
ped the sluice bridge, against which
tbe timbers are put to shut off tbe
water from the sin ice. The "needles''
which had been placed in tbe sloice
way last fall, having baen taken out,
the river fell nntil it had reached the
level of 24 feet Wednesday morning.
The iee went oat early Wednesday
morning, breaking a boom a short dis
tance above the city, setting free a
