Electric Short Line Talk Again.
H. S. Lindsay of Minneapolis, re
presenting the Electric Short Line
Railway Co., met with a number of
citizens of Atwater on Tuesday eve
ning of last week and at that time
arrangements were made for a mass
meeting to be held on Tuesday af
ternoon of this week.
Mr. Lindsay informed the people
of Atwater that his company has
already made its surveys as far
northwest as Starbuck and is now
planning to connect with the road
already surveyed and to run from
Minneapolis to Watertown. To do
so he said it would be necessary to
cross the Great Northern somewhere
between Cokato and Willmar.
Atwater will no doubt make some
effort to secure the line.—Litchfield

Insurgent Woodmen Will Serve
Coffee and Doughnuts Free
Every Day at the Min
nesota State Fair.
Minnesota Woodmen will serve
free coffee and doughnuts at thcr
State Fair Tent. Leading members
will be in attendance to give inform
ation and advice.
Recent developments have con
vinced the committee that those who
join the state order may remain in
the parent order if they like. The
insurance department is expected to
rule that way. A former contrary
ruling was made at the time section
three was left out of the bill but
since the return of section three the
situation has changed and the Com
missioner has agreed to give a new
ruling when the petitions signed by
15,000 members are filed. The com
mittee now has no doubt about the
final decision that members may
hold both certificates. The state
ment in the application that the
members intend to quit the M. W.
of A. is held to be formal and direc
tory but not compulsory. This will
greatly increase the membership of
the Minnesota order. The office of
the Minnesota Woodmen in Minne
apolis, 817 Plymouth Bldg., sup
plies literature and forms to all
those who inquire.

as in just one of the 14 Minneapolis

Famous Novel Dramatized.
"Tempest and Sunshine", the
beautiful play to be seen at the Ope
ra House on Tuesday evening, Sept.
2, is a dramatization of Mary J.
Holmes' famous novel of that name
by Lem B. Parker. It is unecessary
to go into detail other than to add
that it is a complete production in
every way and the majority are fa
miliar with Mrs. Holmes style.
The cast is headed by Miss Mabel
Barring as "Tempest" and Miss
Madge Thurston as "Sunshine", who
have been seen separately in so
many well known productions, but
it remained for the Brandon Amuse
ment Company to secure them both
for the same attraction.
You are promised an unusually
pleasant evening's entertainment

John Swenson Donates Pig to be
Given as Special Prize for Best
10 Ears Corn Shown by Boy.
In order to encourage the boys of
the county in growing good corn, Mr.
John Swenson, the well known
breeder of Duroc Jersey hogs has
donated a fine pure bred Duroc pig
with registration papers to the boy
under 18 years of age who brings in
the best 10 ears of corn at the Kan
diyohi County Fair. The corn is to
be grown by himself during the pres
ent season.
The pig in question is by a son of
Freed's Col., the boar that won
championship and sweepstakes at
the Iowa State Fair last year, so he
is a good one.
Boys, don't let a chance like this
go by.

All of us perhaps would hold up
our hands in horror if accused of
being a slanderer, yet how much of
the so-called gossip indulged in in
most communities is nothing less
than downright slander. How often
do we see a bright young life crush
ed and sometimes blighted by the
slanderous tale that probably start
ed from some thoughtless remark or
even a significant look that has
grown and strengthened until, like a
mighty serpent, it coils itself around
its innocent victim, choking all the
joy and brightness out of life.—Ex.
Farmers Should Exhibit at the State
There will not be a county exhibit
at the State Fair this year. For this
reason a special effort should be
made to have Kandiyohi county well
represented by individual exhibitors.
Kandiyohi county produces some
splendid fruit and its exhibit at the
county fair is one of the best in the
state. Why not send a good collec
tion to the state fair?
Many farmers have prize winning
corn, fruit, grain and vegetables. If
every one who has some extra good
product would fix it up and send it
in they would receive their full share
of prize money.
One reason why more individual
entries have not heretofore been
made from this county has been the
difficulty of getting products entered
the Saturday before the fair opens.
This year the undersigned expects
to be on the grounds Aug. 30 and will
be glad to enter products which any
farmer may wish to send.
