Forty Days for Hanson.
Last Friday night, about 12 o'clock,
a little fracas occurred in front of
Hansoom's pool room. Oae of the
concerned came out of it with his
smelling capacity greatly diminished,
at least for the time being, and the
other got 40 days in the, county jail
for delivering the blow that was the
cause of it. It happened thusly:
At the afore mentioned time and
place, Hans Olson, who is conducting
refreshment and "non tox" stand
on Third street, was quietly sitting on
the stairway leading down to the cel
lar, when Frank Hanson, at present a
member of a N. surface gang, ap
peared On the scene. Without chal
lenging Hans in due form or in anythis
way intimating that he had "ought
against him," Frank walked up toraged
him and landed a vicious knock right
on his nose. Hans, of course, was
not prepared for this sudden attack
and tumbled clean down to the bottom
of the stairway before he stopped to
pick himself up. When he did so hesmall
found that his assailant had com
pletely disappeared. Meanwhile Po
liceman Stephens was notified of the
disturbance and he at one proceeded
to look for the cause. After having
searched all the neighboring buildings
without finding any trace of the lost
"Fitzsimmons" Stephens supplied
himself with a lantern and continued
the search outside, acting upon the
supposition that he had taken "to the
woods." And sure enough. After a
45 minutes strenuous hunt, the culprit
discovered among the tall tree
weeds back of the Barnstad building,
on Benson avenue. Upon being asked
by Stephens if he was the man who
struck Hans Olson he answered: "Yes,
and I am proud of it, too." Stephens
asked him to follow and this he did.
As they commenced their walk down
the street Frank asked pointedly:
"What would you do if I should start
to run." Stephens answered in atone
of voice that left no doubt as to its
meaning: "That's my business what
I would do." Entertaining a slight
suspicion that the policeman carried
something that could travel farther
per minute by a great deal than his
means of locomotion, Frank dismissed
all thoughts of a romanti i''get away,''
and the rest of the way to the city
eooler was traveled in peace. When
they arrived at the hotel that has ac-and
commodated so many weary sons of
"son asked to be conducted the
county jail, as he feared the cooler
would be unable to furnish him with
his usual conveniences. Stephens re
plied that he would do so in the morn
ing and this he did.
At 10:30 the case was called before
Judge Muller. Hans' bandaged nose
about the only testimony intro
duced and no more was needed. It
spoke for itself. The defendant
pleaded guilty, giving as an excuse
for his act that he mistook Hans for

did not effect the judge very
much, for he sentenced him to 40 days.

Damage Done In This Locality
By the Wind Storm That
Swept the State.
A most severe and destructive stornv
passed over parts of our county last
Saturday evening between seven and
nine o'clock. In some places it de
veloped into a hurricane and wher
ever it proceeded it wrought a great
deal of damage.
That Willmar escaped a visit from
terrible agent of havoc seems
strange, all the more as the storm
all around here. The wind blew
quite hard here for awhile but did no
damage. North of the city quite a few
places were visited. On John Olson's
farm it tore down and completely de
stroyed a 9200 windmill, twisted a
barn all out of shape and scat
tered stacks of grain all over the
A residence under course of con
struction on Marcus SonPerson's farm
was leveled to the ground and the car
penter work will have to be done all
over again. In town of Edwards the
storm destroyed Ole Oslle's windmill
and part of the barn. On the Lake
Milton stock farm in Whitefield it
wrecked the windmill and a heavy
wheel scraper, left in the yard, was
completely turned over by the terrific
The freakish nature of the storm was
shown by the way in which it treated
the stacks of grain and shocks. In
the same field some of these were left
untouched while their immediate
neighbors were spread around in a
very liberal manner. A hay stack
was first soaked by the rain and then
scattered far and wide over the prairie
to dry in the sunshine that came after
the storm. Bundles of wheat were
found sheltered in ditches and corn
fields, and some of them had even
managed to climb the telephone poles.
Trees of all kinds and dimensions were
broken and in one instance a whole
grove was annihilated.

Last Saturday evening about 8
o'clock a part of this locality was
visited by the most severe storm the
oldest settlers here can recollect of
having had. The Wind blew a regular
hurricane and did considerable dam
age to everything in its path. Hay
and grain were scattered all over the
prarie, outhouses tipped over and
smashed, and trees went down aS if
cut with a scythe, some of them meas
uring about six feet in circumference.
The telephone lines were also damaged
to a great extent in some places. An
son's wind mill was totally demol
ished. But the most peculiar of all
the accidents was the removal of N.
Trulson's corn-crib, which was moved
six rods from its former loca
tion without receiving any damages
whatever. It seems a miracle that
the destruction was not greater. Still
we think it was plenty and feel assured
that no one that experienced it will
wish for another one like it.

at the lumber yard of J. S. Bobbins
at Pennock, was quite badly injured.

Sept 2 and 3.
E. C. Wellln, of "The Leading
Store," returned home yesterday after
a six weeks' travel abroad. In .the"shown
"Land of the Midnight Sun" he visited
the capital of Norway, CnrUtiaaia,
where his parents and. other relatives
are located. It was 18 years since he
left them and naturally the re-union
was a most happy one. On his way
back he passed thru the picturesque
and historic cities of Stockholm and
Goteborg, in Sweden, Copenhagen, in
Denmark, and Hamburg, Cologne and
Paris on the mainland. Mr. Wellin
expresses himself as being very well
satisfied with the trip.

New Fixtures for Bank.
The Kandiyohi County Bank has
celebrated its 25th anniversary by put
ting in new mahogony fixtures, con
sisting of desks, tables and chairs.
The fixtures were purchased from the
Phoenix Furniture company, of Eau
Claire Wis.j and were put in place by
Mr. Thomas, a representative of that
company. They present a very hand
some and attractive appearance and
will no doubt prove serviceable for
the next 25 years.
The Kandiyohi county bank was
established in 1879 and is thus 25
years old. A small booklet, just pub
lished by the bank, contains some very
interesting facts regarding the busi
ness done in the years past. The de
posits Jan. 1, 1880, were $23,295.89 and
in 1904 they had increased to 1381,
25154, or more than fifteen times the
amount of the deposits in 1880. This
is certainly a fine showing and proves
the popularity of the bank with de

Pastor's Wife Injured.
While Rev. and Mrs. Sotendahl of
Norway Lake were on their way home
last Thursday afternoon they met with
an accident that proved quite serious.
About a mile west of the city the team
became frightened at a tent which had
been pitched near the road. At first
the pastor succeeded-in stopping them
but in so doing they commenced to
backup, and seeing that this would tip
the buggy he decided to drive them
ahead. This he did but he soon found
that the horses were beyond his con
trol and all,attempts at stopping them
fruitless. After having fol
lowed the road for a short distance
the frenzied animals turned from it,
and just when they did so one of thesome
front wheels collided with a telephone
pole with the result that the buggy
was completely upset and both its oc
cupants thrown forcibly to the ground.
They both received some severe outs
and bruises in the tall. Halvor Ship
stead and J. R. Hill, who were on
their way to Willmar, came to their
and they were both taken to theSaturday
Frost hospital to have their injuries
looked after. Towards evening they
were removed to the home of T. C.evening
Quale in the First ward, where they
spent the night. Naturally they both
feel stiff after the rough experience
but it is not thought that any serious
results will follow.
The horses managed to tear lose
from the buggy and continued their
wild chase until they arrived at the
brick yard, where they stopped. The
buggy was badly damaged. The top
was completely knocked off and twisted
out of shape. The wheel that took the
heaviest part of the collision was also
bent considerably and the front axle
Roise Selects Claim.
Axel Roise, who was one of
lucky ones In drawing a Rosebud
claim, returned last Friday morning
from the South Dakota country, where
he had been to make his selection of
land. He arrived here on the train
carrying the Duluth excursionists.
Mr. Roise's quarter section is
cated about two and a half miles from
the Nebraska line, 20 miles west of
Bonesteel. The nearest postoffice is
named Jameson. He was assisted in
picking out the land by an old Indian
settler and is well satisfied with the
portion he secured in the big govern
ment lottery. Mr. Roise considers it
good farming land and hopes some
day to realize handsomely from it.
His original number in the drawing
was 812, but owing to a number of
those who had registered dropping
out, he secured 720th place.
A Show Enterprise.

destination this fall is the Pacific
coast. Yesterday they transferred
their outfit to the Rodlun building on
Benson avenue. They expect to give
exhibitions here during the street fair.

THIEVES SECURE $300
Cash and Valuable Papers Are
Missing from Home of John B.
Olson of This City.
John B. Olson, who is familiarly
known as "Tree John," is not only
$300 short in cash, but is also the
loser of all his valuable papers. A
tin box which he used as a depository
for these valuables was stolen from
his home in the east part of the city
time between five o'clock Friday
evening and early in the evening of
Mr. Olson states that the treasury
box was concealed under a lounge in
the bed room and that the last seen of
it was at 5 p. m., Friday, when his
wife was mopping the floor and spied
it in its customary place. During
Mr. Olson, who is engaged
in truck farming, was busy about the
city selling his vegetables. When
came he had occasion to go
to his box to deposit about five dol
lars in silver, receipts from the sale
Of garden stuff. Imagine his surprise
not to find the property there and also
his greater surprise when he. learned
that his wife had no knowledge of the
whereabouts of the treasury box.
Mrs. Olson had been about the house
all day and had noticed no one about
the premises except a lady friend who
was staying with the Olson's part of
the time. During Friday night no in
truders had visited the place. The aid
of Chief cf Police Bonde was enlisted
in a search of the premises, but noth
ing could be found that would indi
cate that thieves had been prowling
about. The house had been securely
Friday night and an examina-
tion of all doors and windows failed
to reveal anything of an entrance hav
ing been effected at that time. A
thoro search was made of the premises
but no box or anything that would
give a clue to the thieves could be
and the mystery deepened.
It is now suspected that the box was
removed by some one who was quite
familiar with the premises and an in
vestigation is being made by the au
thorities. Whether the affair is in
tended as a joke by the perpetrators
or not remains to be seen, at least the
Oiion»s are anxiously awaiting de
Ordered From City.
Mr. Gray, who for the past three
weeks has been bartender at Hans
corn's pool room, was ordered to leave
our city last Saturday forenoon by
the police authorities. The reason
for the expulsion was that Gray had
conducted the poolroom in a very of
fensive and unsatisfactory manner.
He made no plea, entered no objec
tions and asked for no time extension,
hurried from the city as soon as
he had gathered unto himself all his
