DIEDMrs. Aug. Lundgren, bor
Maria Lovisa Lindquist, on Satur
day morning at 2 30 o'clock, Sept.
4, 1909, after a lingering illness of
many months, aged 44 years, 8
It is with inexpressible sadness
that we write these words. How
little they express of the anguish
and woe which this awful blow has
brought to our friends, yet through
the tears and out of the heartaches,
will come the aroma of a beautiful
Christian character, of a life of ser
vice and devotion to others, of a
noble womanhood. Ic is not neces
sary to say that she was all that a
wife and mother should be, one
glimpse of her daily life was proof
all sufficient of that fact, her home
was the dearest spot on earth to her,
and now that her mortal self is not
there, it is indeed desolation, but
out of this too will come the fond
memories of other days to comfort
and cheer those who now sit in
sadness and loneliness.
Maria Lovisa Lindquist was born
and reared in East Union, Carver
county, Minn., on Aug. 26, 1865.
Just as she had budded into beauti
ful young womanhood, Aug. Lund
gren claimed her as his bride, Apr.
2, 1888. Since that time they have
resided here continuously, and the
ties that were formed on that spring
day have grown stronger as the
years have come and gone, and now
that they have been broken, the
blow seems all too hard for the sor
rowing heart of the companion who
is left. This union has been blest
with eleven children, all living ex
cept one, now ranging in ages from
twenty years to fourteen months,
their names being as follows Ella,
Edward, Ebba, Mabel, Robert, Es
ther, Florenee, Clinton, Alice and
LeRoy. Some of these are too small
now to fully realize the great loss
they have sustained by the death of
a loving mother, still in the years
that come they will feel it more
keenly. One little son, Erling,
passed away last spring. His
death was a severe blow to the
mother, whose health had even then
begun to fail. To neighbor friends
who called to see her the evening
before her soul took flight she spoke
with a heart overflowing with joy
of her little Erling who had re
turned from the spirit land and ap
peared before her in a vision.
While her life shone brightest in
her home, she gave as much time as
possible, in a quiet and unassuming
way, to church and social work.
She was an active member of the
Swedish Lutheran church and took
great interest in the work of the
Ladies' Aid society. Her& \vs a
life full of Christian virtues and
On Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock,
after a brief service at the home,
and an impressive funeral sermon,
partly in Swedish and partly in
English, preached by Rev. E. O.
Cbelgren in the nearby church,
which was filled to overflowing,
and special music by the'choir, all
that was mortal of Maria Lovisa
Lundgren was tenderly carried in
the beautiful flower-bedecked cas
ket to the final resting place in
Greenwood cemetery. Among the
many beautiful floral tributes were
several set pieces, one in the
shape of a heart, being from
the Ladies'Aid society of the church.
Few occasions have brought forth
more genuine sorrow, and the deep
est sympathy of the community goes
out to the stricken husband and
motherless children.
Among relatives present a* the
funeral were one brother, E. Lind
quist, of Turtle Lake, N. D., and
his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Otto Allen,
of Radium, and Mrs. Chas. West
berg, of Crookston. The, aged fa
ther of deceased, who is staying at
Turtle Lake, N. D., was unable to
come to the funeral. L. B. Lind
quist, a brotherwho lives at Bau
dette, was also unable to come on
account of train connections.

Edmonton, Alta, Aug. 26"Within
a period of ten years, or less, the
United States will be importing
wheat from the grain fields of West
ern Canada
This was the somewhat remark
able statement made in Edmonton by
Prof Thomas Shaw, formerly profes
sor of animal husbandry in the Min
nesota State University, and who is'
now assisting James Hill, of the
Great Northern, to bring the farmers
along his lines of railway to a reali
zation of the fact that methods for
the preservation of the fertility of
the soil are immediately necssary
The above statement is the key to
sions which are creeping mysterious
sions which are creeping mysterious
ly across the Canadian border in the
direction of the wheat centers of the
northwest The professor acknowl
edged as much.
Prof. Shaw is the central figure of
a party of seven prominent United
States agricultural editors and jour
nalists who are touring the Canadian
West in a private car. He based his
statement on statistics he produced
to show an alarming decrease in
vield per acre in the western states.
"Since the virgin soil of the west
ern fotates was broken over 2y years
ago," he said, "the yield of wheat per
acre has decreased from 25 bushels
per acre to 12. It is quite true that
there is a large crop this year in
fa~t larger than for some vears. But
the yield per acre is decreasing and
the population is ruji'dly on the in
crease. There will come i ttir.e pos
sibly in less than ten vears, when
the consumption is greater than the
yield. I can see no other result
than the United States must ulti
mately buy wheat from Canada. The
acerage the western states is lim
ited. In Canada only the fringe lias
been touched upon."
"Do you think, in view of your
prophecy, that the increase of dut
on wheat to 30 cents was an unwise
move?'" the professor was asked.
"I do personally, I heartily disap
prove of it."
"That James J. Hill will be carry
ing grain from western Canada over
his own lines, to the mills and ele
vators of Minneapolis and Duluth
within the next decade is another
statement made by Prof. Shaw.
A system of branch lines is being
built, diverging from various point?
on this trunk line' through the north
ern states, and converging in the
Tftheat belt of Northwestern Canada.
He has already built into the No. 1
hard fields of Manitoba, tapping
through them at Morris, Man. He
has another line heading for Winni
peg. Still another is crossing the
border into Saskatchewan, and there

The importance of the potato crop
in Minnesota is well known. This
has bee recognized in the horticultur
al division of the Minnesota Agricul
tural Experiment Station by the ap
rointment nearly tv*o years ago of a
man, A. R. Kohler, whose special
study is the potato and the prpater
share of whose time is devoted to
this work. 'Experimental work and*
study of the potato are being carried,
on along the following lines:
1. Improved methods of culture.
2. The quantity of potatoes to
plant to the acre.^ t"^j|
3. How to cut potatoes for plant
4. How to control the potato tee

We hear a great deal lately about
"The City Beautiful." Even PodunK,

pal scramble towards the beaul)
shops Spick and span outskirts are
the rule fresh, clean faces, and th-3
municipal scolding-locks are safely
held in by the most approved devices
The Lyceums and Chautauquas
have taken a major part in this a
wakening. They have sent men and
women into the byways and hedges of
municipal life with lectures and pic
tures of City Beautiful They have
made it theii business to see that in
every city there shall be two or three
hundred people who have heard of
good streets, modern sanitary plumb
ing, and beautiful architecture. They
have allowed no city to hide its light
under a bushel. Whatever it has done
in the beautifying line has been photo
graphed, and discussed, and heralded
abroad, and brought into the lime
light by the platformists.
The craze for beautifying has
spread beyond the confines of the
cities We hear now of the 'Village
Beautiful" and the "Country Beauti

of "Good Roads", and does it so suc
cessfully that he is known as "King

The people are waking up. Citizens
are asking themselvet "What's the
use of Uving in squalor, and dirt, and
ugliness?" They repeat something
they ha\e heard at a lecture"The
beautiful is just as useful as the use
ful, only more so." They know it is
as easy to be clean and sanitary as
it is not to be it is only a question
of choice. And so the people are
choosing The City Beautiful.

passengers, who were asleep, from

and for halt an hour much excite

his officers, however, succeeded in
quieting all hands.
A stiff northwest wind banged the
ship about and the situation became
so serious at 7 o'clock that orders
were given to put the boats overboard.
Twenty five of the passengers, most
ly women and children, were placed
in the first boat, but unluckily the
bow tackle collapse and several per
sons were thrown into the sea.
Captain Imrie had ropes thrown over
the side and within 15 minutes those
who had been immersed were drawn
to the deck
Finally six more life boats were put
over and the passengers transferred
to them. The seats, however, con
stantly drenched the shipwreck ,peo

had been adrift two hours, a boat from

to a harbor where the passengers and
crew were cared for by the fisher folk.
