There were a large'number of middle

morning. The reason for it was in the
condition of the pavements. During

coating of ice over the cement and it

side up with any degree of comfort un
less you took to the road. The rain
continuing throughout Sunday eve

and taken some of the frost out of the
place Saturday evening in the gymna- fast limited trains, at the rate of S75

time the entire staff will be present and

time appears to be in waiting for them.

friends all know, and did it well but
he was best as the humane captain of

The city of Sleepy Eye had a caucus
last Wednesday evening and named

There was some talk before the meet

time came there was nothing doing and
the slate as previously planned with

went through. For the office of recorder
there were four candidates but Joe
Schmidt, one of the original settlers
of the city and a noted character in
that part of the country won out easily.
It is said that he will not be allowed
to have a clear field and there is some
doubt as to whether he will be able to
get enough votes to elect him.
Conway McMillan, who was to have
lectured on the subject of botany,
Saturday evening at the auditorium of
the high school building, failed to
make good but took a general subject
of education. The lecture or rather
talk, was interesting and in a large
measure instructive but was by no
means what one would expect from, a
gerson occupying the place in the
University of the state that he does.
He seemed to be surprised at the char
acter and numbers of his audience and
was unprepared. The auditorium was
filled full and some were sitting in
chairs in the aisles. While there may
have been some disappointment as to
the character of the lecture, it was
nevertheless something from which all
may draw good and the effort to bring
soch men here is something that is
highly commendable and worthy of the

document to be introduced in evidence

as an attorney would have to defend

substantiate the authenticity of the
