The Minnesota Stute Fair closed
Tuesday, it having been one of the
iibost successful ever held in the State.
Louis Kiel, the Canadian rebel, who
was to have been hung to-morrow
(Friday) has been indefinitely respit
ed. Lieutenant Gov. Dewdne3r,
„pf the Northwest Territory has re
ceived instructions Irom Ottawa not
to proceed with the hanging until
further orders.
Fannie Witherspoon, a Minnesota
mare, won the purse at the State Fair
on the two mile trotting race Tues
dajr. She made the two mile heat in
4:45, thus beating the record made
two years ago by Monroe Chief, of
Kentucky, one second. His record
at that time was 4:46 and has not
been beaten before, although a num
ber of horses have attempted it on
some of the best tracks in the country.
The New Shell Prairie Road.
The formation of good direct high
way communication with the
districts surrounding Wadena is a
work of necessity, to provide means
both of approach from thence and ac
cess to them for settlement. Appre
ciating this the Village Council ap
propriated the sum of 8500 for the
purpose of opening a road to the Red
Eye river, there to join another ex
cellent one already made north to
Manter and Park Rapids, An ap
propriation of a like amount has also
been secured from the State to be ap
plied on the same road. Contracts
for clearing the timber and brush and
let to the set
tlers thfough wliose vicinity the roatt
passes. Many of these contracts are
already fulfilled, and with the com
pletion of all a highway between three
and four rods wide and fifteen miles
long will have been formed. Over
any part of it a good load can now be
hauled. The route selected is re
markably free from wet, low-lying
land and the necessity of corduroying.
Excepting slight detours to avoid
swamps the road pursues a direct
northerly course from Wadena to the
Red Ej-e through a heavily timbered
egion. The road, although perfect
ly good for hauling loads is, neverthe
less, far from being a carriage drive.
Not until a season's travel has made
well beaten track will comfortable
driving become possible. As it is at
present even the most careful driving
an endless series of jolts and
jumbles. This is the only disadvan
tage however apart from this objection
the road will be excellent and it also
will be overcome by time snd traffic.
Hold Your Wheat.
The cause of the low price of new
wheat is a puzzle to everyone. It is
an undisputed fact among the best
authorities on wheat that it is bound
to bring a better price in the near
future. The elevators in Wadena
will allow the farmers, by paying a
small storage fee, to store their wheat
and will advance them money on it.
This will enable those who have
small bills to pay to do so without
sacrificing their grain. Don't sell
your wheat at present, farmers. That
is the advise that we would offer.
The following editorial from the
Mark Lane Express, agricultural
authority in England, is worthjr of
thought by farmers in this vicinity
as well as in England: "Farmers,
hold your wheat—if you can! This
is the advice which, for the first time
in my lite, I venture, to give» Since
I have been acquainted with farming
there has not been a year when the
policy of holding wheat was so
strikingly desirable as it is this
season. In view of future supplies
currcnt prices are something like an
insult to growers. In America there
is about the worst crop on record in
South Russia a failure of the crops is
reported in the rest of Europe, jin
eluding the United Kingdom, the ag
gregate yield will probably be under
average and Australia has very little
more to send us this yean There is
a good crop in India, it is true but
it will not come here freely at current
prices. Whence, then shall we get
the 1G,000,000 or 17,000,000 quarters
we shall probably require to import
-,r? ..
We receive wheat in small quantities
from so many sources that there is
no fear of scarcity, but we shall cer
tainly have to give a higher price
than we are now offering, long before
the end of the cereal year just begun
in order to supply the population
with bread,. If farmers do not flood
the markets with the new home crop,
arise will probably take place soon
but if they follow their usual practice
it may be deferred until foreigners
will get nearly all the benefit of it.
Let English farmers keep in mind the
fact that circumstances bearing upon
the wheat supply are very peculiar
this year, justifying a peculiar policy
among growers. As a rule it does
not pay to hold wheat but this year
I am convinced it will pay.
Wadena County Fair,
As next Monday is the first day of
the Fifth Annual Fair of the Wadena
County Agricultural Society, we wish
again to impress wpon the minds of
our business men, mechanics and
farmers, the importance c£ making
good exhibits. It is not merely for
the purpose of receiving prizes that
exhibits should be made. There is
somthing of far more importance than
this that such exhibits should bo
made. It should be for the purpose
of showing to outsiders that this
country is a productive one and thus
induce others to come in and settle
and cultivate the large tracts of unim
proved land in the county and vicin
ity. Manufacturers should make ex
hibits of their articles to show that
manufacturing can be made a success
here, and thus induce others to locate
here and engage in other branches of
manufacturing. O n- business men
should all make nice displays of their
merchandise,to show to outsiders that,
although this county is new, business
is carried on here on a large scale
successfully. All those things help
to fill up and make something for
spectators to look at, so that when
they go home they will not say that
there was nothing to be seen at the
Wadena County Fair. Whore good
displays are made in a tasty manner
they leave an impression on the minds
of the spectators that are lasting and
some good is sure to grow out of it. A
County Fair is one of the best places
for farmers to meet and look at the
cereals exhibited by each other and
to talk over the best methods of cul
tivatnig, etc. A great deal of good
information can be exchanged.-. The
.matter riT
sheep, swine, poultry, etc., are the
most profitable td be raised and the
best manner of taking care of them
can also be discussed to a great ad
vantage. In fact more good informa
tion c«\n be gleaned at a Fair in two or
three days than by reading for
months. If everyone will take an in
terest in the fair and make some kind
of an exhibit, however small it may
be, it will be a success, and we have
every reason now to believe that such
will be the case.
Suicide".
The first suicide that was ever com
mitted in Wadena was on Monday
night Sept. 14th. Mrs. Anna Koch
who resided on Averill street between
First and Second streets, has for
several months past appeared some
what deranged. Her husband, Julius
Koch, died last April and ever since
that time Mrs. Koch has not been in
her right mind. She was taken very
sick soon after his death and at one
time it was thought that she was dead.
She, however, survived, but her mind
was not right and never has been
since that time. Mrs. Koch was of
German descent and was about 36 years
old. On Monday she had told Mrs.
Bayer, the lady who was staying with
her, that she had a notion to go to the
railroad track and throw herself un
der the cars. Mrs. Bayer, however,
succeeded in persuding her not to?do
so. They all retired Monday night
at about 10 o'clock. Mrs. Bayer says
that she
woke up about 2 o'clock and
everything was quiet and she went
to sleep again ant did not wake until
o'clock in the morning when she
discovered that Mrs. Ivoch was miss
ing and the back door was open.
Thinking of what Mrs. Koch had toll
her the
day previous she sent her lit­
tle girl to Mr. Katzky and Mr. Wal to
to give the alarm, and they imme
diately Set out to search for her on
the
railroad track supposing that she
had probably gone there as she had
threatened to do, but she was not to
be found in that direction. They then
went to the house and deached it
through and from there to the barn
and as they ascended the stairs they
both saw her suspended from the roof
with a rope around her ncck, dead* A
barrel stood by her side on which she
had probably climbed, fixed the rope
around her neck and jumped off—into
eternity. Mr. Katzky and Mr. Wal
do immediately called in Coroner
Dr» C. Ak Cromett and a jury was
summoned and an inquest held. The
jury
.consisted of Chauncy Potter, John
Hay ton, N. W, Briggs, G. W. Fol
lett, Gi M. Migge and I» Metzger.
After due deliberation the verdict of
the jury was that Mrs. Koch had com
mitted suicide by strangulation. Mrs.
Koch leaves one child a little boy six
years old. Her remains
were
-zr
interred
in the Wadena Cemetery yesterday
afternoon.
