Twenty Tears Service In One
Rev. D. C. Jordahl has resigned his
pastorate consisting of the E a and
Wes Norway Lak and Lak Johann a
Norwegian Luthera Synod churches
and has accepted a call to Ridgeway,
Iowa, one of the charges neighboring to
Decorah, Iowa. This charge has been
served by Rev. as Nelson, but he
has accepted the position of editor of
"Luthers Kirketidende," left vacant by
the resignation of Dr. a Larson.
Rev. Jordahl has served the Norwa
Lak community for more than twenty
years, since his ordination which took
place at the Lak Johann a church in
May of 1892.
Th churches of this charge are well
scattered, one church with the parson
age being located in Lake Andrew town
ship, one in the township of Haye in
Swift county and the third in Pope coun
ty. This involves much hard driving on
the part of the pastor. Rev. Jordahl has
so long been an active citizen *of the
community that his removal will cause
much regret, not only among his parish
ioners but as well among all other peo
ple who knew him.
His congregations here tried every ex
pedient to induce him to remain, but
when they learned that his decision was
final, steps were taken at once to call
a successor. The Eas church held a
meeting Monday to agree upon candi
dates to be submitted.

and Charles Miller of Harrison appear
ed before the County Board last Mon
day, representing some objectors to the
County Ditch, for which Chas. Kullberg
was the contractor, which was recently
accepted by the County Commissioners
in the township of Harrison. The ob
jectors have retained Atty. R. T. Daly
of Renville and expect to bring action
for damages unless their case is adjust

ditch is not according to specifications
or at least that it does not drain the
lakes it was supposed to drain to the
extent that they get any benefit of the
heavy assessments they have to a

The greatest execution sale ever pull
ed off in Kandiyohi county takes place
at Sheriff Bonde's office next Friday

phone Company will be sold to satisfy
a trust deed or mortgage held by the
Minnesota Loan and Trust Company,
which calls for the sum of $170,888.74.
The mortgage is recorded In twenty-nine

Northwestern and will shut out all
stock-holders. The report is that if the
sale fails to cover the amount due the
stockholders will likely be called on to
put up the balance.

Mr. Gilbert Amonsen, president of the
newly-formed- Willmar Machine
Foundry Company, was in the city yes
terday to inspect the progress made in
the foundry building that is to be erect
ed in connection with the machine shop.
Mr. Amonsen is confident that the new
company will be able to do a satisfac
tory business from the start. The foun
dry will be under the immediate direc
tion of Gilbert Amonsen and the ma
chine shop will be managed by his son,
Henry Amonsen, who is the secretary
treasurer of the company and is a prac
tical machinist. The. Amonsens have
been in the machine business at Minne
apolis for many years back, manufac
turing engines, elevator and mill ma
chinery, and expect to continue the mak
ing of engines, etc., at Willmar. Mr.
Amonsen, Sr., has investigated condi
tions and believes that he will be able
to supply castings from Willmar in com
petition with the Twin Cities, by getting
his raw material direct from Duluth.
Operations will begin as soon as the
foundry will be completed. Jt is to be
sincerely hoped that the Amonsens, to
gether with J. Emil Nelson, the local
party, most interested, will succeed in
putting this Industry on its feet and
keep it in operation. It will be a big
benefit to the city to have this plant,
which has been shut down so long,
transformed into a busy and growing in

far in this remarkable war. Monastir

fensive tone. Both Austri a and Russia
are rushing war preparations.
