EfliijjlflgMMa* V, l\ hi W ffba&*** Old Settler Dead. Another old seitler has passed to the Great Beyond. Peter A. Youngberg, for the past twenty-five years a resident of the town of Lake Elizabeth, died at his home in that township last Sunday night. The end came at 11 o'clock, de ceased having been confined to his bed for a period of about two weeks. He had been ailing for some time with heart trouble and asthma and this combined with his advanced age brought on the final dissolution. He was 76 years old the 22nd of last September. Deceased was a native of Motala, Sweden, where he was born Sept. 22, 1833. He was married to Eliza Elg the 24 of June, 1864, and the two emigrated to America in 1866, first settling in Chicago. There they resided until 1876, when the family removed to Minnesota and took up their residence near Litch field. They lived there until 1885, when they removed to the farm in Lake Elizabeth, which has been their home ever since. Mr. Youngberg was a highly respected citizen and his death will not only be mourned by his family but by many friends. He leaves a widow and six children as follows: Mrs. J. O. Malmberg of Atwater Ellen and Edwin Youngberg, re siding at home Mrs. F. A. Rosen quist of Litchfield Alfred P. Youngberg of Hoffman, and Aldrick V. Youngberg of Duluth. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at one o'clock from the family residence and at two o'clock from the Norwegian Baptist church, Rev. Nelson officiating.—Repub lican Press (Atwater).

The Following Amendments to tho Charter of the City of Willmar, Minne* sota, have boon Proposed and Present* ed to tho Mayor of tho Said City by tho Board of Frooholdors of tho Said City and will bo Submitted to tho Voters of Said City for Ratification at tho Annual Election of Said City to be Held on Tuesday, the 5th Day of April, A. 0.19IO. Hans Gunderson, City Clerk. First Proposed Amendment. We propose that section seventy* seven of the said Charter of said City be ameuded to read as follows: -INTOXICATING LIQUORS "Sec. 77. All of the general laws of the State of Minnesota pertaining in any manner to the sale of intoxicating liquors, shall, as far as applicable, be in force in, and apply to the City of Willmar. Provided, however, 'that the legal voters of the City of Willmar shall have the power and authority to vote upon and determine for them selves, the question whether license for the sale of ^intoxicating liqaors as a beverage shall be granted by the council of said City or not and it shall be tne duty of the clerk of the City of Willmar, upon receiving a petition for that purpose, signed by legal voters of said ity to at least fifteen (15) per centum of the entire vote cast at the last preceding annual Charter election of said City, at any time nt less than twenty days betore any annual election of such City, to give at least ten days notice that the question of granting licenses for the sale of mtox icating liquors as a beverage in said City, will be submitted to the legal voters thereof at the Dext ensuing an nual election, which question shall be determined by ballots containing the words "In Favor of License" or "Against License," »s the case may be: Provided further, however, that the neglect of the clerk to give the re quired notice shall not invalidate the vote and determination made under the provisions of this section, if the petition named shall have oeen duly filed. The votes upon said question shall be taken, canvassed, returned and announced in the same manner as is prescribed by this charter for the taking, canvassing, returning and announcing the votes for the election of City officers, which determination so made shall continue until the same shall have been reversed at a subse quent annual election in the same manner and, if such returns show that a majority of the votes cast at such election on said question shall be "Against License", no license for the sale of intoxicating liquors shall be granted by the authorities of said City of illmar, except for medicinal or mechanical purposes, but if such re turns show that a majority of the votes cast at such election on said question shall be "In Favor of License," then the City council may grant license in the manner prescribed by law The purpose of the proposed amend ment of the above named section is to require a petition to be signed by at least fifteen (15) per-cent of the entire vote cast at the last preceding annual charter election of said City, instead of ten voters of said City, as now re quired by the charter, in order to sub mit to the voters of said City the question of issuing licenses for the sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage within the City. Second Proposed Amendment. We propose that section ninety-five of the said Charter of said City be amended to read as follows: —POWER TO BORROW MONEY OR INCUR DEBT.— "Sec. 95. The City of Willmar may issue Bonds by ordinance as follows: 1. For the purpose of constructing, regulating, maintaining, extending, enlarging or improving suitable wa er or light plants, or either of them or for the purpose of acquiring or paying for any real estate or other property reeded in connection with any such plant. 2. For the purpose of raising not to exceed fifteen thousand dollars for a permanent improvement revolving fund provided for in this charter, in order to provide money for any con templated local improvements, and such bonds shall constitute a first lien upon all such local improvements, and upon the property benefitted thereby and to be assessed therefor. 3 For the purpose of paj ing, fund ing or refunding any bonded indebted ness of the City or the interest thereon, existing at the time this charter goes into effect, or created at any time in any manner by said charter authorized. 4. For the purpose of constructing main sewers, septic tanks, filtrating plants, and other appurtenances per taining to a sewer system. Such or dinance for the issuance of bonds may provide that the same shall be general obligations of the City or that they shall not be general obligations, but shall be payable out of any assessed taxes, assessments, funds or liens held by the City, or may limit the City's liability thereon in any other manner or shall guarantee that the City shall pay for the same, provided that the bonds so issued under subdivi-ion two, above mentioned, shall always be general obligations of the City. The City shall have authority to protect itself by acquiring title to any property subject to special assessment for local improvements, and shall have authority by ordinance to assign and convey any property so acquired, whether proceedings to acquire such title have been had prior to the time of the going into effect of this charter or thereafter, and shall have the power in like manner to assign any lien or right of action, held by the City on ace unt of or arising out of any such assessment, as security for the pay ment of any bonds, certificates of in dtbmess or other evidence of indeb tedness mentioned in this section, or to provide that such bonds, certifi cates or other evidence of indebted ness mentioned herein, may be collec ted out of any such property, liens or rights of action. Whenever theCouncil shall pass any ordinance to issue bonds pursuant to the provision of subdivisions one, two and four of this section, such ordi nance shall provide for the submission to the legal voters of the City, at some general or special election to be called by the Council for that purpose, the proposition for issuing said bonds, to an amount deemed by said Council advisable Such election, whether general or special, shall be conducted in the same manner and with the same formalities as special and general elections are conducted under the gen eral laws of this State. The ballot to be voted at such elec tion shall read substantially as fol- zsz^Ji #«& lows:— "Shall bonds be issued by the City of Willmar under the provi sion of section 9% Chapter V., of the chatter of said City to the amount of dollars, for the purpose of ", and no such- bonds shall be issued untill such ordinance has been ap proved by a majority of the legal voters voting at such election. The debt of the City shall not be increased by bonds or otherwise be yond eight (8) per-cent of the total value of the taxable property of the City, according to the last preceding assessment for the purpose of taxa tion provided, that bonds may be issued as above provided in subdivi sions one, two and four, but the total amount of such bonds when added to the other indebtedness of the City shall not exceed nine (9) per-cent of its taxable property as above de fined and provided, further, that bonds may be issued, as above provi ded, for funding the City's bonded indebtedness whenever required and provided further, that certificates of indebtedness against taxes levied and assessed may be issued as hereinafter piovided. Bonds, certificates and other evi dences of indebtedness and obligations of the City authorized by this section shall in no event bear a greater rate of interest than Fix per-cent per an num, and if they run for more than five years shall not bear a greater rate of interest than five per-cent per annum, and shall in no event be sold for less than the par value thereof, and shall be sold in accordance with the provi sions of section 785 of the Revised Laws of the State of Minnesota. Ex cept as provided in this charter, no warrants, bonds or other evidence of indebtedness shall be issued by the City or any one in its behalf." The purpose of the proposed amend ment of the above named section is to confer upon the City of Willmar the right and authority to issue bonds of said City for the purpose of building and constructing main sewers, septic tanks, filtrating plants, and other appurtenances necessary for the pro per construction of a sewer system in said City. Third Proposed Amendment. We propose that section one hun dred and eighty-four of the said Char ter of said City be amended to read as follows: ASSESSMENT TO BE CERTIFIED "Sec. 184. When said assessment is so confirmed, it, together with all affidavits of publication and proofs of service of notices connected therewith, shall be duly certified by said commis sioners, and filed with and entered in a book kept for that purpose by the clerk, who shall forthwith, under the direction of thj Council, certify said assessment to the Auditor of Kandi yohi County, and said Auditor shall divide each assessment into four equal parts as nearly as the same can be divide and shall, in proper books to be provided by said City, and kept by said Auditor of said Kandiyohi Coun ty, extend the same in proper columns in such manner that said assessment shall extend over four successive years succeeding to the year in which said assessments shall have been so order ed -that is to say: Said assessments are to be paid in four equal annual installments, with interest to be paid annually on each one of said installments from the date of the confirmation of such assessment at the rate of six (6) per-centum per annum, and the owner or owners, or other person, whose duty or right it may be to pay such special assess ments, shall have the right to either pay the same with the deduction pro vided for in Section 190 of this Char ter at any time before the lapse of time for the appeal provided for in this Charter, or they may pay the same in said four annual installments, with interest, as aforesaid, on each one of said deferred installments, to be paid annually at the time of paying the installment due each year. And the auditor of said Kandiyohi County shall, at the time of so extend ing. said special assessment on the tax list in such parallel columns for each year's installment, add to the amount of each installment, interest on each installment remaining unpaid, at the said rate of six (6) per centum per an num on the who of such unpaid in stallments and said interest on the whole of said installments shall be paid each year at the same time and in the same manner that said install ments are to be paid. Any such assessment or installment thereof, and the interest thereon which shall not have been paid on or before the first day of January following the return thereof, shall thereafter be pav able to the County Treasurer as other taxes and assessments are payable, and shall become delinquent, and be subject to a like penalty as state and county taxes and said County Trea surer shall make settlement with the City Treasurer for all collections made by him on account thereof in the same manner as for other taxes" levied in the City. Said clerk shall also make and cer tify a copy of said assessment to the treasurer of the City, whose duty it shall be to receive payment of all such assessments and installments, and .in terest, up to and including the thirty first day of December following, and said assessment shall bear interest at the above mentioned rate fom the date of the confirmation, payable an nually. When any such assessment or in stallment thereof is paid to the Trea surer of the City he shall give dupli cate receipts therefor one of which shall be delivered to the clerk, who shall thereupon mark upon his roll opposite the appropriate parcel of land the words "Paid on the day of and on the first day of Jan uary following, the clerk, after com paring his roll with the roll in the office of the Treasurer, shall certify to to the County Auditor all payments made on account of such assessment, and said Auditor shall mark on his book, opposite the appropriate parcel of land, therein described, the word "Paid." The purpose of the proposed amend ment to the last above named section is to extend the time for the payment of any special assessments that the City may hereafter make for the build ing ©f sewers, laying of sidewalks and grading or paving of streets, from one year, as now provided by the charter, to cover a period of four (4) years, and to be payable in four (4) equal yearly amounts, if any owner of property within the City shall desire to take advantage thereof. At the Minnesota Conservation and Agricultural congress to be held in the auditorium int the city of St. Paul March 16, 17, 18 & 19, there will be an interesting exhibit connected with an immense map of the state. The space alloted to each county is a table thirty inches wide and thirty six inches deep, and at the end of the table is a perpendicular wall the same size. Some distance to the real and above the exhibit table, a large map of Minnesota twenty feet high and of proportion in width will be hung. Ribbon fiom each county on the map will be run down to its respective ex hibit table. For example: A vis itor takes Kandiyohi county notes geographical location on the map, and can then trace with his eye down the ribbon to the exhibit ta ble, where the products of that county will be in evidence. The Kandiyohi county exhibit will be in charge of A. H. Sperry and E. C. Wellin. A good supply of booklets will be handed out. Manual Training Exhibit. The manual training department of the high school has a fine exhibit of work done in the show windows of Carlson Bros. & Frost this week, and it is attracting a good deal of well deserved attention. The ex hibit consists of a library table, a settee, tabourettes, pedestals, a magazine rack, a piano bench, a sewing cabinet and a partly finished writing desk, all made by high school manual training students. One would hardly believe that these pieces could have been made by stu dents who have not as yet spent a year at the work, and yet such is the case. It speaks volumes for the ability of the students, and is also a good proof of the splendid work done by Mr. E. L. Udell, who is in charge of the department. Young People's Program. The Young Peoples Society of the Swedish Lutheran church will hold its next regular meeting on Wednes day March 9 at 8 o'clock in the evening.

That this section is destined to be a great dairy section is now well understood by all thinking farm ers. All the natural conditions point to dairying. Let us start right, for no matter how favorable nature is man must do his pa*"t. At the Farmer's Institute the far mers will hear Mr. Henry talk on this subject. He has carefully worked out a system of dairying that is giving him big cash returns. How to get the most cash out of our cows, out of the cows that we now have,—is what we most want to know. How to properly raise and feed our calves so as to- make good, profitable cows out of them, how to use the skim milk to best advantage as a hog feed, and many of the small but so important points in the care of the cow will be explained.
