father, W. E. Blue, with whom he
drove out home.
Knute Mohn threw Olson of

he in the Gotch class soon.
H. H. Harpster and R. Whitak
er were in from Alpha on Thurs
day, circulating a subscription for
a church at that place. Amounts
aggregating over $1,000-00 have
been already subscribed, so it
looks as though the new church
would surely be built.
W. A. H|art returned on Wed
nesday from Dowagiac, Michigan
where he was called by the death
of his father. Mr. Hart went on
the first train after he received
the telegram announcing his fath
er's illness, but the old gentleman

W. D. Premo and son Leslie,

kin, Minn., with several cais of

ed onto the Vern Campbell farm
north of town, purchased by
them last fall. Mr. Leslie Premo

The nws reached here this

The home talent play, "A
Country Kid," that was put on at
the Opera House on Wednesday
evening was well received and
there was a large attendance. D.
J. Ryan who appeared in the title
role, convulsed the house with
roars of laughter. Being one of
the cast himself it is rather diffi
cult for the writer to estimate the
worth of the play, but we are told
that all parts were well presented
—and for this we are inclined to
give credit largely to Mr. Guy Lee
under whose direction the play
was produced.
The purpose of the play was
well accomplished, there being as
stated above, a large attendance
More than $100.00 was realized
from ticket sales—which, after
expenses are paid, will be used
toward building the new Catho
lic church.
Are you contemplating
having an auction sale?
If you are, it would pay you
to have your bills printed
here and an advertisement
run in the Chronicle. You
could reach more people,
especially more farmers,
than you would by adver
tising in the two other
papers in this city. When
you hold an auction sale
you would like to let the
farmers know about it. The
best way to do this is by
advertising in the Chronicle.
Bear this in mind when you
hold that auction sale.

This is not a fanning mill but a special machine for taking wild
oats out of Tame Oats, Wheat and Barley, which we do perfectly
and to your satisfaction.
This machine will also pay big dividends just on grading tame
oats alone. Mustard and wild oats are easily taken out. Because
of the tumbling motion which allows the oats to get on end, the thin
ill-shaped kernels are cleaned out the nice fat plump tame oats are
saved for your seed. The same applies to cleaning wheat.
Special Power Attachments ccn be furnished.
