Tw persons got their hands badly injured in corn binders last Saturday at about the same time. Peter M. Burns was harvesting corn on his farm near Kandi yohi and upon reaching down to push some short stalks so that the elevator would catch them, his left hand was caugnt in the gear and the forefinger so badly crushed that it had to be amputated between the first and second joints. The other victim of the corn harvester was Marcus N. Olson who got his band caught in the machine and very painfully lacerated. At first it was thought that one of the fingers would have to be amputated, but upon an examination by the doctor it was found that amputation would not be necessary. Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Mossberg were guests at the Interlachen Sunday. Commissioner J. O.Kloster spent the latter part of last week at Willmar attending to official duties.

Atwater Republican Press: Christian Behm, who lives just across the Meeker county line northeast of the village met with a very serious accident last Satur day, about noon. He had come in from the field where he had been working and had with him a team hitched to a wagon with a rack on. When he had one of the Worses un hitched from the wagon Ihe other became frightened and started to run. Mr. Behm grabbed the horse by the bridle, and was dragged some distance. He was thrown down and the wagon passed over the lower part of his body. Both Dr. Gibson and Dr. Cassel were summoned to attend him, and they made him as comfortable as possible. His injuries seem to be internal, and it is difficult to ascertain the extent of them. They are, however, regarded as quite serious and he suffers a great deal of pain. Mr. Behm will have the sympathy of his friends in this misfortune, and all will hope that he will speedily recover from its effects. Fred Upheber doubtless holds the cham pionship for the largest load of wheat ever hauled to this market. One day last week he hauled a load that weighed out 109 bushels and 2 0 pounds.

A team belonging to Lars Henjum, of Arc tander, indulged in a spi.ited runaway while in here yesterday morning. The team was standing at the mill.

GREAT ATLANTIC PACIFIC TEA GO. 418 WABASHA STREET. ST PAUt. MINN. AN EXPENSIVE STAMP Dr. McKeo of Benson Pays Dearly for Uusing a 2-cent Postage Stamp That Was Cancelled. Because O. W. McKee, veterinary surgeon of Benson, Minn., tried to save himself the price of one 2-cent postage stamp, he will be out about $125 in fines and expenses, and the United States government has already expended approximately $150 to bring him to trial, making the cost of a 2-cent economy at least $275. Dr. McKee manufactures and sells horse liniment in Benson. He sends out circulars proclaiming the healing power of his mixture to farmers in all parts of the northwest, and postage is one of his heaviest items of expense The poorly cancelled stamps on the letters of reply coming in to him from fourth-class post-offices proved too much of a temptation, and he fell. Postmaster Mons Hauge of Benson noticed that the stamps' on the doc tor's outgoing mail were slightly faded, and he resolved on a little quiet sleuthing. Selecting a particularly intact stamp on the doctor's incoming mail, he put his privateN mark on it and waited microscope in hand. Soon the same stamp came along, going out. Post master Hauge telegraphed to St. Paul. Soon Inspector Davis appeared, and the case against the doctor was com plete. His examination before a United States commissioner at Fergus Falls and his indictment by the feder al grand jnry, which finished its work yesterday afernoon, followed. Dr. McKee was arraigned and asked to be allowed to defer his plea till Monday, the understanding with the district attorney's office being that he would go back to Benson and raise the amount of his fine, which will be $100 at the minimum.—Minneapolis Journal, 5th inst. Sorry for Willmar. A former citizen of Willmar now re siding at Merrill, Wis., subscribes for the TRIBUNE and writes the follow ing l^egarding Willmar's saloons: "I was very sorry to hear that Will mar had saloons again. It seems a shame that people cannot appreciate a good thing when they have it. I can readily see the difference, for here we have forty two saloons. But then it seems the majority of the people haven't high enough sense of honor to see the difference." J. T.
