Tried for Breach of Promise.
Whether Miss Cora Kasson of
Oswego Springs, N. Y., led Henry
Klauser of Litchfield, Minn., from the
straight and narrow path, or Mr.
Klauser abused the confidence reposed
in him by Miss Kasson—these are the
questions now before a federal petit
jury which will report to Judge
William Lochren of the United States
circuit court tomorrow morning. If it
decides that Klauser was the victim of
Miss Kasson, he will lose his reputa
tion for firmness of character, but
save $10,000. The case, which is an
action for damages for alleged breach
of promise, went to the jury yesterday
afternoon.—Minneapolis Journal, 7th
inst.
Cora E. Hanson, Saratoga Springs,
N. Y., who sued Henry Klauser for
$10,000 for breach of promise, recov
ered a $4,000 verdict today in the fed
eral circuit court, Minneapolis.
Judge William Lochren granted a
stay of execution, pending appeal for
a new trial.—St. Paul Daily News, 8th

Dallas (Tex.) News: The Chicago
Glee Club as a quartet is one of the
greatest that ever appeared in Dallas,
as soloists they can hardly be ex

mony they are nearly perfection.
They are not only singers, but actors
of a high order.
Owatonna (Minn.) Journal: The

Green Lake Breeze:
The corn binder as well as the shredder, is
almost as dangerous to monkey with as a
buzz saw. 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

Commissioner J. O.Kloster spent the latter

Charlie Martinson has been, very ill and is
still confined to his bed, but his condition
has improved considerably during the past
few days and a speedy recovery is looked
for.
M. W. Spicer came out to the farm Tues
day. There has been considerable influence
brought to bear to get Mr. Spicer to run as
independent condidate for county attorney,
but it seems he thinks the proper time to
come out was before the primaries.
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. It required a four
horse team to pull it. We understand the
banner load heretofore was some over 99
bushels.

Section Foreman Anderson informs us that
he is now paying his men $2 per day, which
is the highest wages ever paid section hands
during his experience of something like a

When they reached a point in the rear of the
A. Dowswell residence they vered to the left

were all piled up in a heap. The team was
not seriously injured but the wagon and har
ness were badly smashed up as was Mr.
Amundson's fence.
A setting of barley on the Jens Nelson farm
in Mamre was destroyed by fire Wednesday
afternoon. The fire was set by sparks from

when the fire started and the crew had hard
work saving the separator, which was quite
badly scorched before they succeeded in get
ting it out. All the belts on the rig were
rendered useless by the fire. Mr. Nelson esti
mates his loss at 500 bushels of barley. The
rig is owned by Oscar Nelson, a son of the
man who owned the grain.

was brought before Judge Abrahamson.
Mr. Otterness on behalf of the defendant ap

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

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."

for this division of the road, brought
his family from Willniar Friday and
is now occupying the Houde house

Composed Song.
"Hello, Grandpa," is the title of a
pretty little song, lately issued, with
words by Mrs. J. E. Leslie, of Will
mar, well known to many people in
this section by reason of her long
residence in this county. M,r. and
Mrs. Leslie are grandparents—very
young grand parents, but very proud
of the distinction. They have one of
the brightest and prettiest little
granddaughters that any grandpar
ents ever had—two of them,—in fact—
and the words to the song are sug
gested by the frequent calls to grand
pa from the little ones over the tele
phone.—Rock County Herald.

If you are improving under your fami
ly physician do not come and take up
their valuable time. They wish to give
each one plenty of time, but cannot
listen to long stories not pertaining to
your case.
They have discarded the old reme
dies used for ages by the medical
Tvorld and which it would be folly to
lepend upon any longer for they da
not cure, as thousands die depending
on them for relief.
The fact that these Specialists have
discovered entirely new treatments
and natural cures, gives them control
of the Nervous System, Heart, Stom
ach, Lungs, Kidneys, Catarrh, Con
sumption, Epilepsy, Deafness, Male
and Female Weaknesses, «Cancers,

eases.

new method and hearing in many cases

varied forms cured so it will never re
turn. If you have "weak lungs or con
sumption do not fail to be examined.-
