On Wednesday evening of last week a very pretty party met at the parsonage of the M. E. church. It consisted of the Sunday School classes of the pastor and his wife the time was spent in playing games and eating good things. It is needless to say the little folks enjoyed them selves to their hearts content.

Mr. and Mrs. Lee took the train for Morris Friday, returning Saturday. All our young unmarried men took in the sights of Graceville Sunday. One of the boys had a series of misfortunes that made it necessary for him to stop over at a farmhouse for repairs before getting home. Something should be done for our town well. Every morning the pump is frozen, and causes a lot of incon venience. What is the matter with th«* manager of the "Town Well Co?" Chokio will soon have a brass band if Dame Rumor can be believed. That is where our boys can use their superflous supply of "wind" to a good advantage. Some of the boys are "very angry" at some unknown person, who as it seems, is pumping them for their first matrimonial venture by sending presents of various sorts and denom inations. Prof. O'Brien, our school teacher took a trip to Morris Saturday. J. H. McNally went to see her Sunday evening. Miss Louise Leaman, of Graceville, made a pleasant call on Monday. A dance will be held in the hotel Saturday evening. Peter Stuler our genial section "boss" took his usual trip to Johnson last Sunday. The Northern Pacific Railroad has justf put into effect a series of low round-trip rates to Pacific Coast points. These California tickets are good until April 30th 1894, and are good for stopover under certain con ditions. These rates will enable those desir ing to do so, to spend the winter in Southern California, or to visit the Mid-winter Fair to be held at San Francisco. This latter event will undoubtedly be second only to the World's Fair just closed, and will re pay a visit, as it will exhibit the re sources and capabilities of Califor nia.

Aaiong the many causes given for hard times one seems to be over looked by the business men of Morris, and yet it is a potent factor, seen by any one who chooses to in vestigate. This factor is thQ lack of enterprise in advertising. Some will say we use this argument for the benefit of our paper alone, but this is a mistake. The dull times are the right times to force sales by calling attention to your goods neighboring towns are filling their local papers with ads, and as a consequence are boasting of the very large business they are doing. As business gets dull in Morris her merchants out down their ads and consequently let their trade go to other towns. If some of our merchants would look in our office we can show them by our exchanges, what other towns are doing with not one bit better, or cheaper goods than Morris merchants have on thoir shelves. Any thing to succeed must be kept before the people. Some of the business men of Morris don't spend one dollar a year in advertising, and yet they admit that a newspaper is a benefit to a town and they are per fectly willing the paper should labor the year round for their benefit, provided it costs them nothing.

The very serious question of seed grain for the coming year is just now occup} ing the attention of many farm ers in this country. What with drouth and hail, a large number of farmers have been left little with which to pay their debts, and these debts are so solidly held by mortgages that many farmers have been unable to save enough for bread and seed. The next trouble is, that when the grain is all gone to the mortgagees the unsatis fied mortgages are still hanging over the heads of these farmers so that they are unable to seciue those who have seed for sale. In this predica ment what is to be done for those farmers? We have a number of them in Stevens county, and a still larger number in Grant county. And the malady spreads over the larger part of Minnesota. The people cannot be loft to starve they are as a whole honest, industrious farmers upon whom this unavoidable condition of affairs has fallen, and they are powerless to break away from it. We invite suggestions from those who have given the subject careful scrutiny. It is a very grave subject and should command the serious thought of all thoughtful men. We think the matter of sufficient import ance to justify the Governor in calling a special session of the legislature, if he has not power to act in such an emergency without, legislative aid. If this cannot be effected the county commissioners of the different counties should use the credit of their counties in some way to procure relief. The columns of THE SUN are open for suggestions and we hope to have the matter thoroughly ventilated in time for spring work. If you want fair dealing, cheap goods and polite attention, go to Wells Bros. & Hanson. If you want to see the neatest store in town, the best quality of goods, the finest line of winter foot wear, shawls, jackets, and every thing needed for comfort, call with Sam'l Larson. MORRIS, MINN, Nov. 22,1893. The officers and members of Crystal Lodge No. 132 I. O. O. F. Morris, Minn., having learned with heartfelt sorrow of the sad breave ment of our beloved brother Rev. S. Ellery, by the death of his wife, wish to expreas our brotherly sympathy for him in this the hour of the greatest sorrow of his life. We earnestly hope and pray that while suffering under this, the heaviest stroke from the Heavenly Father's hand this sharpest arrow from the Almighty Giver, that he may have grace and strength afforded to say with the greatest friend of man "thy will be done." And may he derive comfort for the thought, that when the moorings that bind hin to earth shall have one by one been severed, that he shall drift gently out upon the ebbing tide to meet the beloved wife that has been taken from his fond embrace and awaits him on a fairer shore. May the common Father of us all watch over, and care for, our brother, in these sad, lonley hours, bereft of a wife, and the little children bereft of a mother, until that blessed and eternal morning shall dawn' where "Friendships ne'er break up." Resolved, that a copy of these res olutions be forwarded to Brother Elleiy, and also to the local papers for publication. JOSEPH HOGG. FRANK A. ZAHL. HOWARD A. PERSONAL. H. C.

The other horse escaped injury. The man got hurt in the back and side.

The Man Who Don't Take His Home Paper. You meet him every day. He is the man who can't afford to take his local paper, but can afford to spend his money over the saloon bar, while his family goes naked. He "hasn't got time to read," but he has plenty of time to sit on dry goods boxes and tell lies, while his wife chops the wood. He is the man who is mad at the editor and is going to "bust up" the "darn shebang." He gets some big advertising sheet from down east for fifty cents a year, and thinks his home paper comes too high. He wants to get "something for nothing," and can't afford to waste a hundred cents a year on his local paper, but sends fifty two-cent stamps to a down-east sucker-catcher, for a receipt to kill potato bugs, and gets a reply as follows: "Take two blocks of wood, then place the bug on one antl press down with the other." He can't afford to take his home paper, but he will tackle every fakir and gambler at a county fair and try to beat him on his own game. He gets so many "free sample pa pers an' sich" from the east that he don't need to waste money on the home paper. He is the man whom the "green goods" men consider a soft snap. He is too poor to take his home pa per, but will mortgage all he has to buy gold bricks from a stranger. In short he is no good to himself and a great detriment to the com munity he infests. He is a "small potato." May he be buried with his face downward,"and may jackasses sit on his grave."—The Commoner, Cokato. A Quarter Century Test.

If anybody thought we were exag geratmg when we predicted an over flowing house at the school entertain ment on last Friday evening, their delusion is dispelled we had all the sitting and standing room in the liall occupied, and a large number were turned away for want of space. The net receipts for the benefit of the achools were $55.00. To say the entertainment was one of the best ever given in this town would be putting it very mildly. Th infantry were in full force on the stage,around the stage, and in every corner where a few little tots could be chucked. They were in bands representing different scenes and characters, and the drill of those' youngsters was as near perfect as veterans' could make it. Of the drill of the different bands it would be invidious to make distinction, but if we said anything in that line it would be that mother goose excelled, but we won't say" a word to cause jealousy. The reci tations were very good, considering the youth of the speakers. The beggar song by little Miss O'Mally was charming. Very great, credit is due Prof. Childs and his corps of teachers for the perfection to which they brought the children. There was no confusion, or blunders. Another element in this matter deserves particular notice, and that is the mothers of those scores of little folks. They were so handsome ly and tastily dressed that it must have taken a mint of money, skill and patience to accomplish it but no praise of ours could pay a tythe of the reward thoy received in looking at their treasures on the stage. Death's Harvest. The very unusual sight of throe funerals in one day greeted the eyes of the citizens of Morris on Sunday last. Frank Domstreich of the town of Stevens, was buried from the Episcopal church, Rev. T. Brunkau of the German M. E. church officiat ing. Mr. Domstreich was sixty years old, and leaves a widow and four children aged seven, eleven, fourteen and fifteen, besides a married daughter. Gus Tolburg was also buried on Sunday .. Ho died of consumption after an unusually long illness. He was about thirty-five years old and single he was a native of Sweden. Dorothy, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Randall, died early- on Saturday morning 18th, of whooping coug, aged one year and four months, and was buried from the house on Sunday p. m. A large concourse of sympathising friends attended the funeral Rev. J. Hogg officiating. The child had pneumonia about a year ago from which it never fully recovered, this made it an easy victim for the wbooping couh. Our sympathies go out strongly for the father and mother in this, their first great loss. Although they have three boys left, yet nothing can fill the vacuum left by the death of the little cherub. This is not only the first child lost by Mr. and Mrs. Randall, but singularly enough it is the first grand child lost by Hon. and Mrs. H. W. Stone, out of five married children with a total of twenty-three grand children. It is needless to say that Mr. and Mrs. Randall have the sincere sympathy of the entire com munity. It May Do as Much for You. Mr. Fred Miller, of Irving, 111., writes that he had a severe Kidney trouble for many years, with severe pains in his back and also that his bladder was affected.
