SEMINARY OPENS FOR FALL TERM Old Reliable Willmar Institution Opens Us Doors Forthe 26th Consecutive School Year. The Willmar Seminary opened yetserday with a good first day at tendance and the prospects are bright for another successful year. It has a mission and a field of its own, and altho so far it has not met with the recognition it de serves, the day is not far off when it will, and everything considered it ought to be one of the leading institutions of its kind in the Northwest. The Willmar Seminary was incor porated in 1882 and reorganized in 1890. The general aim of the school, as stated in the articles of incorporation, is that it shall be "a seat of learning for the diffusion of useful, secular and religious knowl edge amongst the young." From 1883 to 1898 the school property was leased by Mesrss. Hove, Hille boe and others, who conducted an independent private school in con formity with the principles laid down in the articles of incorpora tion. In February, 1988, the North west Conference and the Minnesota Valley Conference of the Norwe gian Synod was given a general su pervision of the school, and Rev. H. Solum was elected as principal. After five years work at the Semin ary, he tendered his resignation to accept another position. H. S. Hilleboe then took charge of the school for three years. At the ex piration of this term Rev. C. B. Ingebritson of Clinton, Minn., was elected principal, but owing to ill ness was forced to resign before school opened. Rev. E. A. Vaaler of Grove City, Minn., was then elected to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Rev. Ingebret son. The diffusion of useful, secular and religious knowledge is provided for by dividing the school year into short terms so as to enable pupils to complete some study each term. There is also a division ot the school into two semesters, and besides this there is an opportunity to finish some courses any time of the year. This can be done in shorthand and telegraphy. The plan is to take any person at any stage of attainment and give them an opportunity to push right on and accomplish some definite practical results in the shortest pos sible time. Hundreds of Willmar Seminary students are now holding paying positions in various parts of the Northwest. What students have done in the past other students can do in the future. Religious knowledge is dissemin ated among the young thru •system atic courses in Bible Study and Morals, required from those stu dents who are members of the Lu theran church, optional with others, and for such members of the Lu theran chuich as the principal may exempt from the study. The class es in Bible study are conducted thruout the school year, and are an essential part of every course in the school. The faculty for the coining year is as follows: Rev. E. A. Vaaler, A. B., Prin cipal—physics, German and civics. Albert Struxness Bookkeeping, penmanship and geometry. Geo. 0. Lillegaard, A. B.—Eng lish literature, history and Latin. Miss Ellen S Shorthand, typewriting and letter writing. Hon. Elias Rachie, Ph. D.—Zo ology, commercial law and business English. Rev. J. N. Andersen—Bible study and Christianity. Jno. McGarry—Telegraphy.

Efforts will be made by the ex ecutive committee to organize Taft Jacobson-(Malmberg) clubs in every precinct. The parenthetical part of the name is to be mentioned only in a whisper at present, but it will be made emphatic enough towards the end of the campaign, or as soon as the partisan spirit has been stirred up sufficiently to make people forget individual merit and begun worship party name in the old style. But it maybe that the voters have become intelligent enough to see that special fitness or doing the work in any certain office is worth a thousand times more than political orthodoxy.

Misses Barbara and Lizzie Sluka are enjoying a vacation from their duties at the Commercial hotel, vis iting at their home in Svea.
