Those planning to attend the high

Teachers are all expected at a
teachers' meeting at 10:00 a. m. on

The law has now been so changed
that pupils from nonassociated dis

Two seniors from the Stephen
schools and two from the Argyle
schools have enrolled for the normal

Business meeting.
The subject of the debate was1
"Resolved that a Ford is of more
benefit to the farmer than a Bath-
tub." John Batten and Randolph
Cleveland debated on the affirmative
side and Mr. Scott and Conrad Stev
ens debated on the negative side.
Mrs. Oscar Hanson, Miss Sweat and
Mr. Sacket acted as judges. The de
bate proved very humorous. In spite
of the fact that "Cleanliness is next
to Godliness" the- afiirmative side
won. But part of the audience could
not help but feel convinced that it
would be far easier for the farmer to
get along without a Ford than with
out a bath.
Karl Sahlberg spoke on the "True
Spirit of Co-operation" in the Scan
dinavian language. He touched on
the element of selfishness which
seems to be prevailing. He empha
sized the fact that wherever selfish
ness prevails true co-operation can
never exist. While farming is one of
the noblest as well as the most in-,
dependent occupation he said that
the farmer should not become so ego
istical and so dominated by the &piri* I
of selfishness that he can not ste
that other occupations have a right
to exist as well as his own. He
claimed that the city is as essential
to the farmer as the farmer is to the
city. We certainly agree with Mr.
Sahlberg that whenever a man Mves,
moves and has his being in the per
sonal pronoun I, me, mine, li respec
tive of what his occupation may be,
there never can be true co-op ^ration.
Mr. Sahlberg is one of our pioneer
and we admire oh" spirit
vim which he enters into the Farm
ers' Club work in spite of the fact
that he is handicapped by not being
able to speak the English language.
John Batten also spoke on "Co-
operation". Mr. Batten is the presi
dent of the New Solum Farmers'
Club and a very enthusiastic work
er along that line. We were very
glad to have him with us for the
evening. Mr. Batten emphasized the
fact that the farmers are the weak
est of any organization for the sim
ple reason that there is not strong
enough co-operation. He wanted to
bring the farmers attention to the
fact that if they would only co-oper
ate they could demand their own
price for their products in place of
letting other organizations set the
The Boxville Farmers' Club held a
well attended and very entertaining
meeting at the Boxville School House
on Tuesday evening, Aug. 3. After
a short business session the remain
der of the evening was devoted to
literary and social entertainment.
H. J. Beardmore gave an instructive
talk on "The Value of Exhibiting"
and was followed by Qle Neraal,
agricultural director of the Warren
High school, with additional remarks
along the same line.
The next regular meeting will be
held Tuesday evening, Sept. 7, and a
good program is assured for that
date also..

Minnesota State Fair draws closer,
more interest is manifested in the

Ada and Warren Tussel.
Warren met Ada on the Ada dia
mond Sunday afternoon in a fast
battle which resulted in a tie score
of 1 to 1 in the seventh. The game
was discontinued at this point, due
to the unfairness of the Ada umpires.
Warren had the best of the engage
ment, but found it no easy task to
win a ball game, when the umpire
deliberately rendered decision after
decision against them and in the fa
vor of the Ada nine. Manager Nat
wick called the bovs from the field in
the seventh and told the Ada manage
ment, that the game would not be
continued unless Warren would be
given another umpire. Ada would
not do this as.they preferred to steal
the game in order to gain revenge
after Warren's victory ^over them
here, Friday evening. According to
the large raimber of fans from the
towns" surrounding Ada, ""present at
tl^jjame it^was not une^Aon^ to

Russling threw for Warren and
with the exception of a couple of bad
innings threw air tight ball. Big
Jack Brown twirled for the Ada
Warren 2 Ada 0.
The best game of the season played
on the local grounds was pulled off
Friday evening, when the Ada and
Warren nines clashed in battle royal,
which resulted in a score of 2 to 0
with Warren as winner again.
Big Jack Brown was on the mound
for the visitors and succeeded in
hohAing the Warren hitters down
pretty well, the only long drives be
Warren and had the Ada club guess
ing. Only three singles were taken
from him. Wingfield backed Chuck
splendidly, while Whiting at first
kept tab of every man as they reach
ed the sack. The whole Warren
team played errorless ball and gave
Russell Al support.
The only runs of the contest were
made in the third, when Russell sin
gled, and was brot in by Tillotson's
double, after reaching second on a
passed ball by the Ada catcher. Jack
son was put out by a fly to second,
Ripperton reached first on the right
fielder's error in missing his fly. This

Another thing commendable in this

C. H. Hopwood, vice-president of
he Pioneer Land & Loan Co., has
just purchased the B. E. Lane farm,
south east of Warren, consisting of
800 acres. This highly productive
farm was formerly known as the
Corrigan farm, from the fact that it
was owned and opened up in the early
days by the Corrigans,^of Geveland,
