Here from All Parts of
The sessions of the Presbyterian
Home and Missionary society of the
Synod of Minnesota, is in session at
the Willniar church today and tomor

in attendance from all parts of the
state. Today is Home Mission Day,

New York City, and an evening illus
trated lecture by John Tallmage Ber
gen, D. D., of Minneapolis. Tomor
row is Foreign Mission Day when ad

The Ronken Club.
The sessions of the Lunch Club was
revived for the season Monday eve
ning, the occasion being the visit to
the city of its founder and original
^, -omoter, Attorney Oscar C. Ronken,
Rochester, Minn. After a delicious
repast furnished the club by the Do
mestic Science pupils of the High
School, Mr. Jos. O. Estrem presided
at an enjoyable speaking session.
Judge Gilbert made a presentation
speech conveying to Mr. Ronken the
good wishes of the members together
with a mysterious package, the un
doing of which furnished amusemeni.
The Club has now a name. It will
undoubtedly be known hereafter as
the "Ronken Club." It is unique in
having no organization, no formalities,
no records, no officers.
Willmar Hospital.
The following have returned to their
homes during the past week after tak
ing treatments or undergoing opera
tions at the Willmar Hospital: K. O.
Axness, Miss Edith Lied and Mrs. Geo.

operations during the past week and
are nicely on their way to recovery.
John A. Anderson of St. Paul is there
for treatment.
Ice House Burned.
One of the Great Northern
houses burned down last Friday after
noon. A spark from an engine, it is
believed, set fire to the sawdust. The
building was a mass of flames at once
under the heavy south wind that pre
vailed. The fire department could not
"Tise its hose, because the connections
of the company hydrants did not fit
the city hose. The company hose was
in poor condition. The efforts at fight
ing the fire were confined to saving
the second ice-house and were suc
cessful. The burned building was a
structure about two hundred feet long
and was the oldest of the company's
ice houses.
Peacemaker Uses "Big Stick."
John Enders, a member of the
Daugherty road crew which is work
ing south of Atwater, was brought in
to Willmar last Wednesday evening
by the sheriff to appear the next day
before the Municipal court charged
with assault and battery. It seems that
two of the crew were engaged in a
"peaceful" fight when Enders under
took the role of militant peacemaker,
badly pounding one of the combatants
with a whip handle. He was fined
$10 and costs.
A Grand Social.
The many friends of Mrs. John
Swenson at Long Lake from far ani
near took the occasion of her enter

Mrs. Syvert Olson, 87 years of age,
died at the home of her daughter and
son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew J.
Berg at Eagle Lake last Monday
morning from the infirmities of old
age. The funeral takes place tomor
row (Thursday) one o'clock at the
late residence and two o'clock at the
Eagle Lake church, Rev. E. O. Lar
son officiating.
Mrs. Bergitta Olson, nee Torsten
son, was born at Lille Dengerud, Aars
gjald, Hallingdal, Norway, Oct. 14,
1827. She was one of the earliest
Scandinavian emigrants to locate in
the Great West. She came to Galena,
111., in 1851. The following year she
came to St. Paul and worked three
years at the Boss home. In 1855 she
was married to Mr. Syvert Olson, and
they located on a pre-emption claim in
the Township of Dahlgren, Carver
county. After the Civil War, in
which Mr. Olson served as volunteer,
the family moved to Eagle Lake, in
October, 1867, and here they made
their home until death. Mr. Olson
died May 27, 1891. Eight children
were born to them, and all survive

The death of Mrs. Hanna Dorothy
(Zakariason) Johnson, nearly 84 years
of age, occurred at the home of her
nephew, Christ Rasmusson last Sat
urday. She has made her home at
Kandiyohi during the last fifteen years
but four months ago was taken ill and
was at her nephew's home until death
came. The funeral occurred Tuesday
afternoon from the house, Rev. Todd,
of St. Luke's church, officiating. In
terment took place at Fairview. She
was a native of Stubberup, Per, Loll
and, Denmark, where she was born
Nov. 25, 1830. She arrived to this
county 48 years ago, coming from St.
Cloud. Her husband, Tunis Johnson,
died many years ago.
A Progressive Dairy Farmer.
While at the Swenson homestead last
Thursday, Mr. David Swenson kindly
showed to us and demonstrated his
new milking machine. He has used it
for some time now and pronounces it
a complete success. Three cows are
milked at once, and he milks thirty
cows in an hour or less. It is an in
vention which means much to the
dairy farmer. The milk is never ex
posed to the air of the barn for an in
stant. Mr. Swenson has his new barn
in good shape now. He has just com
pleted some all concrete stalls includ
ing partitions, mangers and feed
Liquors Are Taxed.
The Democratic caucus in Congress
yesterday decided to exempt gasoline
from war taxation. The bulk of the
special taxes will fall on liquor. Mr.
Lee last night tried to prove that Con
gressman Hammond was a sympath
izer with the liquor Interests because
no extra tax had been placed on
whiskey. Beer and wines, however,
were recommended to bear an extra
tax by the Ways and Means Commit
tee, of which Mr. Hammond is a mem
ber. There are more breweries than
distilleries in Minnesota.
Fire at Lake Lillian.
Ole E. Erickson's residence at Lake
Lillian had a narrow escape from en
tire destruction by fire last Sunday.
While Mr. and Mrs. Erickson were at
Walner's place the summer kitchen
took fire. Alarm was given and help
arrived in time to tear down the kitch
en part and save the rest of the house.
The kitchen and contents was a total
loss. With the hard wind which blew
Sunday, it was indeed fortunate that
the loss was confined to a small por
tion of the house.
Singer Agency Moving.
The Singer Sewing Machine Agency
is moving from the location in the An
nex Hotel building temporarily to the
old Stansberry office on Litchfield
avenue. They have leased quarters in
the Beckwith building which will be
ready for them in a week.
Broke a Limb.
Ed'th, the eleven-year-old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Christ Paulson had the
misfortune of breaking a limb last
Friday while playing in the yard. She
is reported as recovering nicely from
the injury.

Report of "Loyal Farmer Boys Corn
Contest," Raymond, Minnesota,
October 2nd, 1914.
I would like to have all the young
people that entered this contest ac
cept this as a letter rather than look
upon it as a report. It is out of the
question to write each one separately
and for this reason such a contest
cannot be made as popular as it might,
without a better means of reaching
the boys.
At this date after the summer's toil,
after your hoes are well greased and
hung in the shed for the winter and
the crops are most all in, you fall back
in some easy chair and wonder who
won the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. Only
three out of those that entered are
able to get these. I would like to see
all who have entered receive as much
but that is impossible and you could
not expect it of me.
While most of you have not attain
ed to these prizes, do not step back,
feeling you are beat. No, as a result,
much fine corn has been started grow
ing on maty farms. Barring misfor
tunes, this corn. will go through the
planter box next spring, for a bumper
crop in the fall.
Those that have worked to a finish
have not been characteristic of the
fellow that arose with the birds of
spring, plowed, harrowed, planted and
cultivated, ate of the early radishes,
but the sun of July and August got
the better of him and he laid in the
shade while the foreigners, which we
called weeds, crept in and were hav
ing the time of their lives in the back
garden. Many of the boys have al
ready set stakes for next year. Oth
ers are planning to do so. This has
been an unfavorable season in some
respects. Reports of hail and wind
have completely destroyed some corn
crops this year but they have express
ed themselves as ready to try out an
other year.
Now at this time I cannot tell
whether I will be able to take care of
you next year or not. If we launch
another contest, will let you know,
perhaps through the columns of this
Contrary to my expectations I am

Europe a Vast Shambles
At Wrestling Match Held at Carlson
Hall Last Evening. Some Good
Sport Furnished.
The first wrestling match held in
this city in a number of years took
place last evening at Carlson Hall,
when Floyd Domer, light heavy
weight champion of America, perform
ed the difficult feat of throwing three
men in 40 minutes and 30 seconds.
A large and enthusiastic crowd was
on hand, and there were plenty of
thrills furnished for their benefit.
The men who opposed Domer were
Melvin Samuelson, Sam Bonham and
Chas. LeCouq. The two former are
from this city while LeCouq is from
Ft. bodge, la. Bonham was the first
to go to the mat with the champion
and he stayed exactly 11 minutes.
Sam proved no easy man to handle,
and in spite of the fact that he was
outweighed quite a bit he fought
pluckily against overwhelming odds,
and gave the crowd several chances
to applaud his work, especially in
wriggling out of dangerous holds.
However, when they had been at it
almost eleven minutes, Domer sudden
ly shifted and clamped on the toe
hold, and it was over, as Bonham con
ceded the fall, rather than take a
chance on having his leg broken.
Melly Samuelson was the next to
go and this bout was a real thriller.
After several minutes of preliminary
"feeling out" the men went to the mat.
Domer, of course, was the aggressor,
and tried for several holds, but Melly
succeeded in breaking them or wrig
gling out. Suddenly, with a quick
twist, the tide was turned, and Dom
er found himself on the defensive,
while Samuelson assumed the offen
sive. This was a little unexpected
and Samuelson made things hum for
a time by clamping on several holds
that looked dangerous, but Domer al
ways broke them, and he finally be
came the aggressor again. He cried
time and again for the toe hold, but
was unable to secure a good grip, as
Melly persisted in kicking away. He
then clapped on a body scissor, and
a fall looked certain, but again, Melly
succeeded in breaking away. After
they had been at it a little over four
teen minutes, Domer clamped on a re
verse scissor hold and slowly pushed
Samuelson's shoulders to the mat. The
fall was gained in 14 minutes and 30
seconds of wrestling.
LeCouq, the heaviest of the trio, was
the last to go on, and as he had thir
ty-five minutes of the hour left, Dom
er took his time at the start. LeCouq,
however, like Samuelson, assumed the
Hammond Called Back toWash
ington tor Important Work.
St Paul—(Special)—"Enthusiasm
unsurpassed since the days of John A.
Johnson" was the phrase used by sev
eral papers that had reporters at Red
Wing to hear Congressman W. S.
Hammond open his campaign for gov*
ernor last week. Those who saw the
Red Wing meeting declared that if
Mr. Hammond could do five weeks of
that kind of campaigning he would be
elected by 50,000 majority. Mr. Ham
mond, however, told his committee
that several important measures are
still pending before congress, that ho
felt it his duty to his constituents to
return until the most important work
was out of the way. While Hammond
on the stump would make thousands
of votes, his devotion to duty will also
win him countless friends, and just
at present, when the people want a
governor who will be on the job, they
will conclude that Hammond Is just
the man for the place.
Hammond's Work Praised.
High praise for the work Congress
man Hammond is doing In Washing*
ton is given by his colleagues io
Washington. The committee wrote
to Oscar W. Underwood, chairman of
the house ways and means committee,
of which Mr. Hammond is a member,
regarding the prospects of getting him
home for the rest of the campaign.
To this Chairman Underwood re
plied: "I am as anxious to have Mr.
Hammond return heme and take an
active part in the campaign as you
are. I have admired his sterling qual
ities for many years. I regard him as
one of the soundest and ablest mem
bers of the house, thoroughly honest,
upright and painstaking always de
voted to the performance of public
duties, and he is a man who has the
courage to sacrifice his personal for
tunes for the public good. He has
always elected to remain in Washing
ton and do his full duty to his con
stituency and the government rather
than push his political fortunes at
home. This is the type of man that
ought to be selected to hold high po
litical office. If Mr. Hammond is
elected governor of your state, I am
sure he will make one of the best gov
ernors that Minnesota has ever had,
and it is for this reason that I should
like to see him have every opportunity
to met the people of your state, but
I must say that I admire the patriotic
stand that he has taken to stay by
his duties here in Washington regard
less of the cost to himself, especially
at a time when men of his type are
needed, with legislation of great im
port to the American people pending
in the^ bouse."
Candidate Lee may believe that his
sweeping charges that his opponent,
Mr. Hammond, is dominated by the
brewing interests will make votes for
himself—we do not believe that it
will. He is justified in criticising Mr.
Hammond's non-committal attitude on
the county option question. But it is
quite another matter to prove that
the brewers dominate him and will
control him if he is elected governor.
Mr. Hammond's hearty and whole
souled advocacy of the initiative and
referendum, something that would put
the liquor interests out of business
quicker than the talk of politicians
ever will, does not indicate that he is
tied up to the special interests. Neith
er is it likely that President Wilson
or Secretary Bryan, whose administra
tion has gone farther along temper
ance lines than any before, would give
their unqualified approval ot a tool
of the liquor interests. It pays for a
candidate to be fair, even under pro
offensive at times, and made the bout
interesting. He had the honor of stay
ing the longest of the trio, lasting just
fifteen minutes, thirty seconds longer
than did Samuelson. A half nelson
and body hold did the business this
At the close of the match, Melly
Samuelson, on behalf of Jack Root
challenged Domer, and the latter ac
cepted on the spot. The match will
be pulled oft here some time in the
near future, and a record breaking
crowd will undoubtedly be on hand to
witness the bout, as Root has any
number of friends this city, and
Domer, by clean, clever work and gen
tlemanly manner, has earned for him
self a large following of Willmar en
thusiasts, who will be on hand to root
hard for him in all his matches that
are pulled off In this city.
The preliminary, between Bill Jen
sen and Art Knutson, was a peach.
Knutson was outweighed 30 pounds,
and was thus on the defensive all the
time, but he put up a great exhibition,
and time and again, it seemed almost
certain he was down, he would wrig
gle out of danger. Jensen secured the
one fall of the match after twenty-one
minutes of hard work, a full nelson
doing the business.
