Some Tests Made by Experi
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
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

his old U. S. Separator for a new
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
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.

ver medals were the contestants.
The pnze was won by Miss Vina

Does It Pay To Buy Cheap?
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." It not only heals
and stimulates the tissues to destroy
the germs of disease, but allays in
flammation, causes easy expectora
tion, gives a good night's rest, and
cures the patient. Try one bottle.

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

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.

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

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
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
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^,
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
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
