i VOLUME 25. TRACTION ENGINE IN SNAKE RIVER Bridge Collapses and Engine is Dumped Into The Water. Last Saturday afternoon Tom Keefe took out a bran new thrash ing outfit from town. It was taken as far as John westman's place on the road west from the city that day and on Sunday morning following Mr. Keefe proceeded south with the rig to thrash on the south side of Snake river. While attempting to cross the bridge by Mr. Cheney's place, the bridge suddenly collapsed and the big Gaar-Scott engine dumped into the water about 18 feet below. Mr. Keefe and T. M. Thorsen, the engineer, stood on the platform of the engine at the time. When he noticed the bridge falling Mr. Keefe jumped to one side, but Mr. Thorsen did not have even time to jump but went down with the engine and up to his neck in the water. His feet also got caught in some way so that it took a little while before he could extricate himself from his dangerous position. Mr. Keefe also became entangled in the falling timbers of the collapsed bridge and received some scratches and bruises. Mr. Thorsen also got a sliver into his mouth. It was a very narrow escape for both men and they are very thankful that they are yet alive Yesterday contractor J.Nyland, from this city, went out with jack screws and capstan and succeeded in pulling the engine out of the river not seriously damaged. Before at tempting to cross,the seperator was unhooked and consequently is un harmed. Mr. Keefe expects to have the rig at work in a day or two. The bridge is an old one, and though it had been repaired to some extent this year, yet it was not strong enough to stand the strain of the monster engine. The town of Boxville will probably be called upon to foot any bills for damages that may have been sustained. M. W. A. Hall.

Mr. Ole Bang has just completed a fine ten thousand dollar residence on his farm near Oslo, the new town on the Soo. The house altho built on a farm has every modern convenience including sewer, water works etc It is built with hard wood floors and elegant hardwood finish thruout and is an example of what thrift and a little effort will do on a Red River Valley farm. From Gustavus Adolphus Col lege. St. Peter, MinnThe fall term opened this year on September 9th, and the enrollment the first day ex ceeded that of any previous open ing day in the history of the insti tution. Almost all those enrolled that day were new students, which fact gives hope of a large attend ance this year. To the college quartette, that during the summer months has rendered concerts in various sections of the state, is un doubtedly due the credit of bring ing many of the new students. The old students have been coming in continually since the opening of the term and the wheels of the know ledge mill are now humming at full working speed. Heavy work was scarcely to be thought of the first week because of a street fair and carnival down town, which natur ally occupied some of the students' attention. The carnival is now closed, however, and the professors do not seriously regret it. The college is continually widen ing its field of activity. Last year a department of agriculture was added to the commercial depart ment in order to give the farmer boys a chance to obtain practical in struction in that line during the winter months. This branch is under the charge of Prof. Wojta, a lecturer and writer oi reputation both in our own and neighboring states. This year a new and unique department has been added, unique because it is the only one of its kind on this continent, namely the chair of Icelandic. There are extensive Icelandic settlements in parts of Minnesota and North Dakota and many Icelandic students have at tended this institution during past years. It is to afford these an op portunity to familiarize themselves with the Icelandic language and literature that the Icelandic Synod has asked for and been granted this chair. This makes the number of different languages taught at this institution eight. Prof. Magnusson, who fills this chair, is a native of Iceland and has received his edu cation at Cambridge University, England, and has since taught three years in his native land. Magnusson is a muscular athlete and is to be our gymnastic director. Military Drill has also been added to the schedule and this, it is hoped, will assist in turning out men well developed in body as well as mind.

Application by the East Grand Forks Transportation company for an injunction restraining the Sooline from maintaining a bridge across the Red River and ordering its removal was denied by Judge Amidon of the Federal court.

Apple Orchard. H. E. Mussey this week has been presenting his friends with some fall apples grown at his home on the East Side, and proves beyond a doubt that this section of the coun try is to become a great fruit rais ing country in course of time. The apples Mr. Mussey raises are of the Oldenberg variety, and the winter frosts have not killed the trees. If every farmer would raise a small amount of tame fruit each year, this section would soon develop into quite a fruit country.Thief River Falls News. To the People of Viking and Vicinity.

For the welfare of the state and its dairymen the Food and Dairy department is jealously guarding the reputation that Minnesota has won in the line of dairying and to that end the Dairy and Food department is enforcing the law regarding the manufacture of butter from sour cream. When your buyer refuses to take any cream that is unfit for making butter off you can lay it to that they have been ordered to do so by the Dairy and Food depart ment and that it is their desire to obey the law that prompts them to refuse any such cream. It is not the desire of the department to find any bad cream or have any pros ecutions, on the other hand all in their power is done to instruct dairymen in methods that will do away with poor cream of any grade and will therefore briefly give here the essential points in the handlirg of milk and cream Cleanliness covers everything, develop yo sense of cleanliness and you wnl not be satisfied before you have the methods to satisfy yourself. In the cleaning of all utensils, wash them first with luke warm water and a a bi-ush (o\ fiber) well rounded at the ends so it will reach into ail creases and corners of the tinware, when the utensil is perfectly clean rinse it well with scalding hot water and place them with the opening upwards to give a free cir culation of air, this cleans them lastly with air. Utensils thus hand led should be entirely free from any odor whatever, then they are fit to put milk or cream in The separat ing of the milk should be done im mediately after milking. As soon as separated the cream should be aerated. There is machinery made for this purpose, but in the absence of such simply pouring it back into the pail for several minutes with a dipper will do the work effectively. Never pour the new cream into the one kept from the previous milking. When these simple rules are ob served, there will be no bad cream. Besides being the right way it is the easiest and cheapest way in the end. JOEL G. WINKJER STATE DAIRY AND FOOD INSPECTOR. Card of Thanks.
