GROVER TO HUNT
IN MINNESOTA Ex-President Is Expected to Visit the State in Month of October. HE WILL HUNT OVER CHICKEN MD DUCK SECTIONS. Said He May Possibly Gun for Something Besides Feath ered Game. Grover Cleveland, sometime president of the United States, nim rod extraordinary, and light ning rod agent possibly, has been invited to visit the state on a hunting trip in the latter part of October, and has signified his willingness to come. The great leader of the eastern democrats has done much hunt- -i ing of various kinds and at vari ous places in his time, but has never had a i opportunity to hunt over Minnesota stubbles and sloughs. When it was an nounced that he had accepted the invitation of James H. Eckles to address the Commercial club of Chicago Oct. 14, friends in Minneapolis at once tendered him an invitation to continue his western tour into Minnesota. It was pointed out%fhim that Minnesota is exceedingly rich in hunting possibilites that the stubble fields are full of fat chickens, and that the web footed wild fowl haunts the prairie lakes in abundance. It was also urged upon the former "president that he had never tried hi prowess in these, to him, virgin fields. President Cleveland replied I that he would be more than pleased to visit Minnesota on a hunting trip if he could so ar range his affairs, and he intimat ed that he would try pretty hard so to fix things that he could ar range his affairs and come. This prospective visit of the great Grover will attract more than passing attention because, while he has declared that there will be nothing political about his Chicago speech or his entire Western trip, there is a sus picion that while he may hunt for prairie chickens and ducks, with his accustomed enthusiasm, %e may, possibly, after a good day's sport in the fild, yield to temptation and put his ear to the ground. But there is nothing in the in vitation which has been extended t Former President Cleveland which requires him to do this. Notice to Contractors.

Lumbermen Think That Shortage Will Continue Throughout the Season. Lumbermen who operate in the woods north of Duluth assert that they are now having con siderable difficulty in getting a sufficient number of men to carry on their work and they an ticipate that the shortage will continue throughout the season. There is now an excellent de mand for drivers and rivermen and some of the orders which have been placed with local agents are still unfilled. There has been an unusually good demand on western railway construction work and a great many of the woodsmen have ac cepted that character of work, but it was not expected that the drain through this channel would have an appreciable effect on the supply. Nicholas Wildie, a logger who operates north of Cloquet, is looking for men and he had has had had little success in his quest. "We need a great many men in the woods just now, and more will be required later on,'' he said, "but I don't know just where we are going to get them. Some of the mills have had difficulty in getting together a sufficient crew to do their cut ting and they have had to pay an advance over the customary scale. Prom now on the demand for woodsmen will be keen and anyone who wants work will find on difficulty in getting placed." HE GO WET Traveling Man Now Knows How to Step Into a Boat. W. H. Pullman, a traveling man, received a ducking in the lake at the City Boat house yesterday afternoon to the great amuse ment of the onlookers. He was about to start out on a fishing trip with a friend. The latter had stepped into the boat and Pullman tried to follow suit. He got one foot in and the boat swung away from the boards, leaving one foot on the dock and the other in the boat. He made a frantic effort to get back on the dock, then attempted to get in the boat, with the result that he was sent sprawling flat in the water, receiving a thorough soak ing. FRO BEMIDJI Man Killed by Great Northern Train Not Far From Crookston. An unknown man was killed near Emerado, a small station not far from Crookston, by a Great Northern train. It is thought that he was a lumber jack hailing from Bemidji, and that he was on his way to the woods. He stepped on the track and made no attempt to get out of the way, but rather ran to meet the engine and fairly butted into it. Nothing on the body identified the man, and the authorities have no clew as to who he may be. MEN WORKING O N RAILROADS INJURIES WERE RECEIVED AT AND IN HARVEST FIELDS. S0LWAY FRIDAY.
