Why is it that at the great test of separators at Gothenborg, Swe den, the United States separator was awarded the King's Cup and First Prize of Honor? Why is it that at the great Cali fornia Midwinter International Ex position the United States separa tor was the only separator awarded a Gold Medal? Why is it that at the great World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago the United States sepa tors were awarded Three Medals and Three Diplomas of Highest Merit? Why is it that wherever the Improved United States Separator enters into competition it is recog nized as the leader and receives the awards over competing machines, re-affirming the claims made for it that it is the best centrifugal force machine in the world and simply showing that the judges at these great exhibitions recognize what the creamery men and dairy men of the country know so well? THERE IS BUT ONE ANSWER. The Improved United States Cream Separator is so thoroughly made and is so constructed as to simplici ty, capacity or quantity of work, capability of close skimming, wear ing qualities, convenience and gen eral serviceability, that it is the separator on the market today above all others that is worthy of all the honors that can be given. Mr. George Seals of Farmington, Minn., says that he has paid out 25 dollars in repairs in two years on a DeLaval machine. M. M. Hjermstad, president and manager of the Farmington Cream ery, says that he would not trade his old U. S. Separator for a new DeLaval. We have hundreds of testimonies from people all over the United States saying that the U. S. Sepa rator is the best machine, but we want you to come in yourself and see the machine as we have one right here in Warren and guarantee that it will do everything that we claim. There was a lady in the store last Saturday and she said it gener ally took her half a day to clean the DeLaval separator after each separation, and we are showing you a machine that only takes eight minutes to clean and be ready for another separation. We see that it was claimed in last week's paper that the Improved United States Separator was infringing on the patents of the DeLaval machine. Now, people, don't let them stuff you that way, for if the manufac turers of the U. S. Separator were infringing on any of the patents of the DeLaval manufacture, the De Laval people would take the oppor tunity without hesitation to crush out one of their worst enemies. A.

A cheap remedy for coughs and colds is all right, but you want some thing that will relieve and cure the more severe and dangerous results of throat and lung troubles. What shall you do? Go to a warmer and more regular climate? Yes, if possi ble if not possible for you, then in either case take the only remedy that has been introduced in all civil ized countries with success in severe throat and lung troubles, "Boschee's German Syrup."

Billy Bennett's Show. As advertised Billy Bennett's Big Show arrived Tuesday morning and pitched their canvas in the southern part of the city. The band paraded thestreetat 2 and 7 o'clock and gave an open air concert at the tent just before the opening of the evening performance. They put on a melo drama that was full ofexciting jsitua tions and containing enough comedy to keep the audience in splendid good humor during the entire even ing. The specialties were good espec ially the work of Little Belle, the con ortionist, who is very clever in her line. Wednesday evening they play ed, "Ten Nights in a Bairoom Both entertainments were greeted by as many people as could get into the tent. Show Boys Play Ball. The show people organized them selves into a base ball team yester day afternoon and challenged the local players to a game. Neither aggregation put up a very brilliant game of ball, although some of the players did some good work. Lewis, the pitcher for Bennett's nine, has a pretty good delivery and had some of the best of them cutting slices in the ozone. Gus Nelson, the one armed twirler, handled the sphere for the locals, and shot it through in such a deceptive manner that the visitors thought the bats all had big holes in them. Rev. Mr. Fahl stole a basebut of course he does not desei ve a great deal of credit for that, because nobody was expecting that a preacher would steal anything. The game drew a large crowd and was exciting. The game was 8 to 4 in the favor of Warren. School Report. School report for Dist. No. 58, town of Holt, for the month ending June 7,1901.

ANNA SWANDBY, a Teacher.& nFFFP.TIWF PAftF WARREN WILL CELEBRATE. Preparations are Being Made for the Premier Blow-Out. Yes, THE celebration is going to be held at Warren this Pouth of July. Other places are going to Have doings but the only old fashioned rip-snort ing time worthy of the name of "cele bration'* is going to be pulled off right here in Warren. A whole bevy of eagles have been secured to do the screaming. There will be no end to amusements. The committee that was appointed to secure money with which to purchase fun proved them selves veritable "big mit" men and went after the dough with such a draft thaj they extracted an amount beyond the most sanguine expecta tions of the most lavish spender on the purchasing committee, which is made up of a lot of fellows that would put the most inveterate female shopper to shame in the way they have made the money string out, and the immense pile of hilarity they haye accumulated, to be turned loose on that grand and glorious day when all America turns itself loose to do honor to the memory of those who gave us cause for lemem bermg the day. This material has been arranged by a committee whose fertile imaginations and wide experi ence in such matters have enabled them to sort up this hilantyinto the regulation bunches and distribute it along over the day in su^h a manner that those who are lucky enough to be present will have one continual round of real Fourth of July pleas ure. More than this cannot be said, and could not be expected by any good loyal American citizen. The following is the program: National salute of 100 guns at sunrise A grand parade and allegorical procession will form at the High School grounds at 10 30 o'clock a m. and march through the principal streets of the city to the beautiful Island Park on the west side SXERCISES ATiBLAWTPAIBr.

President of the day. Marshal, POWELL COL A. P. MCINTYRE. The above merely summarizes the program. The first,the grand parade, will in itself be worth going many miles to see. The main feature will be floats gotten up by the committee and business men. Those under the direction of the committee will take the character of patriotic displays while those gotten up bythe business men will be more in the nature of ad vertisements, though pretty in con ception, and gotten up to please the eye. Then will come the calithum pians. This is always a good feature of a parade. It is to the parade what the clown is to the circus. This year the calithumpians will be more nu merous and funnier than ever. Those in charge of this feature are working hard to make it a howling success. The exercises at the. park will be along the lines usually followed at a Number 29 Fourth of July celebration, only on a more elaborate scale. And right here we want to say a woid for our park. The city has purchased a beautiful spot on .the banks of the river in the southwest part of town and by a considerable expense baa succeeded in making one of the most beautiful parks in the state for its size. Nature had already done a great deal towards making this place a park, and a few touches here and there by an artistic hand did the balance. The racing program includes some highly interesting numbers and a number of horsemen have made en tries. Our new racing park is said to be one of the finest in the North west. The excellent half-mile track is receiving a course of treatment that will put it in the very best con dition. Experts say it should turn out some fast time. Hallock and Warren base ball teams will cross bats at the Warren baseball park in the afternoon. These two teams are heavyweights the game, as far as this section is concerned, and a first class exhibition of the national game is anticipated. There is to be two dances in town running thiough the entire day, one in the Opera house and one in Lund's hall. Two good orchestras have been secured and those who aie par tial to this form ol pleasure can have all they want of it. Our citizens are making arrange ments to entertain a large crowd that day and propose to have the most elaborate celebration ever held in the northwestern part of the state. The city will put on a holiday attire and go forth for fun and recreation. Visitors will be the guests of the city and every citizen is a member of the reception committee with instruc tions to see that no one lacks the least thing that will go to make the^, day eojoyable.^jS^^iig-^s^^w^ss^Bs*^^1^ The day, as far as the strictly Fourth ofJuly features are concerned, will be closed by an elaborate display of fireworks Even in this old and familiar feature we have something new and up-to-date. Instead of the committee blowing in their money on sky rockets, Roman candles and firecrackers, they invested in a large number of set pieces that will be ex hibited in a regular order and will furnish about an hour of instructive entertainment. One of the pieces alone has over one hundred explosive rockets, candles, etc, that when started displays a dazzling and awe inspiring spectacle Invention of the Gunpowder. It occuied to an alchemist one day that it would be a fine thing to take sulphur, saltpeter and dried toads, pound them all together to a powder and "sublime" them together in an alembic, which he cai efully luted and set on the furnace to heat. He poked up the fire and waited around, think ing what he should do with all his money if this should tui out to be the power of reduction that would turn base metals into gold, when bang went the alembic and the windows blew out, and the door ripped off the hinges and fell down, blara! The al chemist scuffled out from under the ruin of the furnace, shook a red-hot coal or two out of his shoes and the ashes off himself and wondered what had struck him. He tried it again and again, and each time with the same result, and then it dawned upon him that he had discovered a fair art icle of blasting powder. Since then about all that has to be done to his recipe has been to put in a little bet ter article of charcoal, say that of willow twigs, instead of toasted toads. School Report.
