Extra copies of the Tribune are on sale at the Metropolitan Drug Store. The game hangs on, likewise the hunter. Rev. J. L. Fonda returned from his camping expedition, this week. Court convenes next Tuesday week and the prospects are for a lengthy term. Wheat keeps dropping and has got down te $1.07 for No. 1 and $1 04 for No. 2. Vote, brethren, vote vote early and late, but scratch not in the presence of the can didate. Col. J. P. Mumford returned Tuesday, after a week's visit among frieuds at the capital. Mrs. S. S. Murdock, of Minneapolis, made a brief visit to Morris, during the past week. Mrs. J. B. Stebbins. of Winona, arrived last Tuesday evening, on a visit to her son E. W. Randall. Hon. B. Hodges is in town and those desiring anything in the tree line should give him a call. Apples this season are an expensive luxury, retailing at from five to five and one half dollars per barrel. Supt. Guthrie came up the line last week, his first trip since his recent illness. He reports himself convalescent. Having increased the facilities in our job work department, we are better prepared thau ever to execute orders promptly and satisfactorily. Mr. T. W. Waterston and family left Monday evening for Wahpeton, D. T., where he has engaged a store and will re sume his old line of business. Notice of the dissolution of to partner ship existing between Webber, Leonard & Ally, by the retirement of the senior part ner, is announced in this issue. Arrangements have been made for a so cial hop at Brisbiue's hall to morro.w, Fri day, evening. A general invitation is ex tended ami a good time promised. To the candidates: Renumber the proverb, "they that are with thee tp-day are against thee to-morrow, and often change from quarter to quarter like the wind." Mr. Olaf Olson, the contractor and builder, has left Morris and will take up his residence at Fergus Falls where he proposes engaging in the same line of business. Mr. Geo. Lowatcr, wife and child, left for Dunvagan, Canada, Monday. Mr Lowater w'.ll \lsit a noted occuhsl at To ronto, in the hope of again recoveiing his eye sight. That a side track was never yet made long enough, has had ample demonstration in this yard, and hence the amount o pro fanity and other trouble in the vicinity of the coal house. It puzzle-, in to know how the voters of Stevens county will get along, as only thirty thousand tickets have been printed here so far. This is fully fifteen thousand less than last fall. One of our village bummers who has been yanked up and fined quite regularly for the past few months, haif better file a request to the magistrate to fine bim by the year at reduced rates. The first fellow who offers remarks con cerning the "beautiful snow" which put in an appearance yesterday, can consider him self as being duly elected as much of an unwelcome nuisance as his topic. "I want to be an angel," he boisterously sang, as he reeled into one of our stores, the other evoniug. He sailed a little way heavenward forthwith—was raised on a No. 9, over the door sill. Mr. A. W. Wells, wife and family, left for their home in St. Joseph, Mich., on Mon day last. Mrs. Wells, Sr., who accompa nied tliem as far as Minneapolis, will re main for a time visiting friends in Scott county. Mr. James Brishiiv-arrived last Friday and will remain all winter, it being his purpose to familiarize himself with the trade in this vicinity, with a view to em barking in business on his own account at no distant day. Wood has arrived, siucc our last issue, in sufficient quantities 'o supply preseut demands. The unsettled condition of the weather is causing people to examine their wood piles and as a .result there is a gene ral replenishing of stocks The attention of the ladies is called to an announcement elsewhere made of the new stock of millinery just being received by Mrs. D. T. Pettie. It can be safely said of the stock that it is the best sefected assortment ever brought to Morris. A few of the pearly, dreamy, filmy snow flakes" that some idiot poet tells about, put in an unwelcome and uninvited appearance yesterday. They were the worst battered specimens of the "pearly" we have caught ou.to for a period of years. Deliveries of wheat have been slightly checked by the falling markets, the re ceipts however are as yet very fair and busi ness consequently good. Owing to much of the wheat being held by farmers who anticipate future advances in price, collec tions are not nearly as good" as they were a couple of weeks ago. A telegram received by Mr. Kenncr," Monday, announced the illuess of Mr Ii C. Moore, who was suddenly attacked while in St. Louis enroate for home. A later dispatch reported au improvement but indicated that a few days rest would be necessary before the journey home could be resumed. "Stili brisk" is the universal answer to Interrogatories concerning the condition of trade, and it is with no little satisfaction that we are enabled to make this stereo typed report. Compared with the three previous seasons, the amount of business transacted at this point during the past six weeks has been very satisfactory, collec tions especially being far in advance of any fall mouths since the grasshopper CHANGE.—T. W. Waterston has dis posed of his stock of groceries, etc., to Will Summers, who will contiuue the busiuess at the same staud. Mr. Summers proposes adding largely to the stock and will endeavor to keep one of the largest aud best selected assortment of staple and fancy groceries ever brought to this village. Mr. H. R. DeLaplaln leaves next week for Wisconsin, to commcnce work on his bridging contract along the line of the Chi cago, Portage & Superior Railroad, now under construction. Mrs. DeLaplain, we learn, contemplates elosiug her popular boarding house, and, if she does, proposes taking up her residence in St. Paul for the wiuter It will be good news to our business men to leaiu that one of our enterprising young citizens will run a line of ox carts between this placc and St. Paul, for the purpose of carrying telegrams and running opposition to the Western Union Telegraph Co As the transmission of dispatches will be "ex pedited" uuder the new arrangcmcut, this intelligence will prove glad tidings to our readers. During the closing days of last week, the elements were again disturbed aud a prompt and disagreeable veto put upon our fair weathwr. The change from bright, warm sunshine to wet. chilly and villain ous weather, was unfortunate for business, aud we might add uncomfortable for the average mortal who was compelled to wade through whole oceans of mud, and -uch mud as Morris alone can produce. The Metropolitan has gone back under the old management Mr. Kemp having concluded, after a month's experience that the business would not warrant tlw pay ment of such au extortionate rent. Few will be surprised to hear of Mr. Kemp's having thrown up his coutraet, as it was from the first the general opinion of those best posted, that the rent aud other ex penses would more thau eat up the receipts. The candidates are getting lively about these times and are Hying around with faces wreathed in smiles and pockets stuffed with cigars, intent on securing any thing in the line of support, from a pledge away down to a promise. As every one of them is sanguine all are happy. In this connection we might ask what has become of the usual bevy of independent candi dates, has the crop been a failure or has ast year's disaster to all such, proved a warning aud a lesson. Elsewhere we publish a notice of the marriage of one of our popular and deserv ing young townsmen, which occurred at Graceville, on Tuesday last, The_ high contracting parties in this interesting cov enant were Mr. "JuJ" M. Thompson and Miss Lizzc Healy, both of this placc, and in offering hearty congratulations, we but echo tne sentiment of a host of friends whose well wishes for prosperity and hap piness with ours follow, the young and haj py couple as tlicy start on life's journey. If you see a woe-begone visaged individ ual sauntering along, looking as though his last friend had deserted him and he was adrift in this cold, cruel world, alone un loyed and unprotected, don't make a com mon b'under and suppose this dejected, melancholy, despair stricken wreck is a candidate for office not by a good deal. He is the victim who was cornered by rival candidates aud driven to the verge of idiocy. You cau just bet, children, that the average voter aud not the candidate is the mat. who about these days would plunge into an untimely crave as quick as he would dou an overcoat iu V inter. A subscription paper will be circulated Saturday, for the purpose of obtaining funds to aid in Ihe completion of the Yen nesborg Swedish church now being con structed in the town of Swan Lake, near the north east corner of the county. This is the first aud only Swedish church in the county, and as all other nationalities have been assisted in building houses of worship wherein the divine word may be prnaclii-d in that sweetest of languages the mother tongue," our Swedish friends are making an earnest effort to provide for themselves a suitable, church. Having always done the bulk of their trading here, they think it is but fair that our business men assist them, hence this noticc. C. A. Sahlmark has been authorized by the trustees to re ceive subscriptions Of Mt.-s Mary Calhoun Dixou who is to appear here next Thursday evening, we will say that wherever she has visited, the comments of the press are unanimously favorable and speak in glow'ng terms of her versatile powers as a character imper sonator. The entertainment will consist of vocal impersonations and singing and the jrograinme contains many selections which cannot fail to make it popular and acceptable. "The Ager," a parody on "The Raven," is a most amusing selection, while her Woman's Rights Lecture" and negro sermon, the "Origin of the White Trash," are equally laughable. Almost every claws of dialect characterization are given, and the programme contains selec tions which range from grave to gay, from the sublime to the ridiculous, aud afford ample scope for the display of the wonder ful powers Miss Dixon possesses. A- certain editor camc near getting chewed up by an irate bridegroom, not long since. The way of it was this: The editor in writing up the marriage ceremony spoke of the groomsman as "the best man," to this exceptions were taken by the bride gioom, who not only considered it au in sult to him, but a reflection on his wife's appreciative taste, so to speak. It was only alter getting the incensed fellow down in a corner and holding him there that the editor could reason with him, but all efforts at explanation were evidently unavailing, for the fellow threatened, be fore leaving the offlce, to "shoot him so full of hole3 that there would not be a piece of him left large enough to sew a button on, if this ever occuried again." As it is not probable that il will occur again, the bride being quite healthy, the editor breathes much easier. The members of AH Sainls.Parish (Epis copal) on Sunday last, commemorated the first anniversary of their pastors rectorship, an earnest and appropriate sermon being delivered by Rev. F. B. Nash. The pastor, Rev T. C. Hudson, presented a'brief re port of the year's work of which the fol lowing isa8ynopsis: He has baptized persons, solemnized 7 marriages, officiated at 2 funerals and on 125 different occasions of public prayer and reading of the Word. He has delivered 122 sermons and addresses and celebrated the Holy Communion six teen times. The offerings on occasions of public worship have amounted to $287.85. The whole amount contributed during the year, was $1,157.10. In addition to this, the Ladies Aid Society has raised $106, the greater part of which has been expended in furnishing the church. Some gifts from individual members of the Parish were also mentioned, among which were the Church bell, three of the stained glass flrindows and the Baptismal The surveying corps of the Little Fulls & Dakota road are yet in the field, one party uuder engineer Abererombie being located six miles east of Morris nnd bu*y finishing the surveys on the grades. The other party in charge of engineer Simmons1 is at work cast of Sauk Centre locating the line between there and Little Falls. Be tween here and Glen wood there is in tl.c aggregate considerable work yet to be done, the wet weather interfering with the construction in low places and rendering it necessary to either make long hauls or let patches remain unfinished until spring. The latter will probably be doue us it will be easy work to complete any unfinished portions before the track layers reach Gleuwood. As yst no definite arrange ments have been made for the right of way through lauds immediately adjoining Ihe St. P., M. & M. track nnd owued by that company, nnd it is not improbable that a slight change will yet be made iu the loca tion of the depot at this point. CLOSE CALL.—A man uamed James Kel ly had a narrow escape from death or seri ous injury Mouday evening, while on his way home from town with a ioad of wood. Kelly, to use his owu language, "has al ways drank hearty," and on that evening was filled up so full of his favorite bever age that he was totally oblivious of every thing aud does not know wiiat happened. Doc .Maughau and Charley Spramlel were out hunting on that evening and were for tunately near by when Kelly fell or was thrown from Ids seat. He tumbled direct ly under the wagon nnd the horses stop as he fed, one of the wheels however crowded across his chest, aud but for the prompt assistance rendered him, serious injury must have rest Ited. As it was, he escaped with a few bruises, but for a time his couditiou was such as to create the fear that he was hurt internally, this however was, luckily for him, not the case, his iu sensibility resulting from liberal potations aud not from any injury sustained. MORE CONJECTURE.—As regards the probable directum of the new line of the St. M. & M. railroad from Morris east, wc learn from reliable aud well informed sources that the man agement have uuder consideration at pres eut a route as follows: From the west end of lake Whipple the line, as contem plated, runs a little east of south, through Chippewa Fulls, in Pope county, to Pains villein Stearns, where connection will ul timately be made with the Osseo branch. From Paiusville the line turns north of east through a heavy timbered region and makes a connection with the Fergus Falls division at St. Cloud, from there going via Princctou to Hiukicy and thence ou across Northern Wisconsin to a junction ith the Canadian system. This route traverses one of the finest timbered regions of the northwest and is hence one that would naturally attract the attention of this giant corporation, who will, ere loug, have ust for all the timber that can be obtained through the territory which they coutem plate penetrating. ENTERTAINMENT.—The committee of arrangements have provided for the ap pearance of Miss Mary Calhoun Dixon, for the second entertainment of the series, which occurs ou 'J hursday evening of next week. Owing to engagements previously made for Miss Dixon's appearance else where, this was the only evening of that week on which she cvuld arrange to ap pear here, and while the committee would have preferred to name Friday, owing to other nu-cliugs on the evening previous, yet it was not possible to accomplish it. Mr. McClary kindly postponed the date ol his lectur# for two weeks, when he will appear in the third enterlaiumCut of the series. In the meantime our amateur vo calists and dram-itists will nut be idle, aud it must not be concluded' because talent from abroad only has been engaged so far, that the lights of our home circle are to be hid under a bushel, not at all, but as we have to arrange with outside parties to suit their not our convenience, the result has been that the home talcut has been exclud ed from the opening entertainments. This however will afford those among our num ber who take part, ample opportunity for preparation, and will without doubt be of great assistance in providing a class of en tertainments superior to that of last season. THE STAGE.—The inaugural entertain ment of the series under the auspices of the board of trade, occurred on last Thursday evening, on which occasion the Misses Banning, of St. Paul, made their second appearance before a Morris audience. It will be only necessary to say of these gift ed ladies, that they fully maintained then previous deserved popularity, at.d should they again favor us with a visit they cau rely upon receiving a cordial reception. The programme was in some rcspects not what many would preferred to have had, and while the selections were one and all faultlessly rendered, yet there were some among them that did not give satisfaction not, however, because of the manner of presentation, but from defects iu the selec tions themselves. Any lack of apprecia tion manifested, was therefore not due to any cause other than a selection of two or three unpopular pieces, and while this was unfortunate perhaps, as it placed the ladies at somewhat of a disadvantage for a time, with a part of their audience, yet, despite these draw backs, the ability of the talented ladies was fully recognized and acknowl edged. The management have even rea son to be gratified with the auspicious suc cess of the occasion, as the very liberal patronage exteuded promises a renewal of the popularity which signalized the enter tainments of last season. SCHOOL.—The followiug report of the Morris Graded School, for the month end ing Oct. 28th, 1881, has been kindly fur nished us by E. W. Randall, piincipal: Monthly enrollment, 91 summary of at tendance, 1,536 average daily attendance, 70.8. The following is a list of those who have attained an average standing of 90 or over: Ida Stebbins (three studies), 98 Rugles Chester (three studies), 95 Maud Torpey, 94 Graco Knott (three studies), 93 Grace McCoon, 90 Mary Krou, 91 George Cole, 90 Steve Spurr, 94 Edna Pettie 92 Freddie Elmer, 92 Laura John son, 90 Aspcr llalversou, 91 Lutie Will ard, 92 The following ww* neither absent nor tardy: Mary Blssonclte, Maud Torpey, Lilly McCoon, Etta 1'carce, Lilly Knott, Grace Phelps, Ruglas Chester, Willie Dunn, Ida Stebbins, Arthur Williams, Hugh Spurr, Harry llutchlns, Frank Whiteley, Burton Linsley, Nettie Hutchins, Emma Linsley, Asper Halvorson, Ells worth Linsley, Willie Miller, Grace Rey nolds, Alice Bissonette, Charley Hill, Ola Kron, Addie Bissonettee, Robbie Moore, Maud Wlutelcy aud Dounie Pearce. Willi this mouth, the Fall Term closes LEFT.—The visit of sheriff Peacock, of Pope county, to Morris last week and the rumors of the purpose of the visit are con firmed by the Glen wood Press,, which says: "A short time ngo, a fellow by tbe name of Mnthews, hailing from Morris, enme here and staid a few days, stating that he wanted to obtain a license to itart a saloon. He went toward Morris with his team last Sunday, saying he would get a load of outs, but instead of getting oats and returning here, he stole a load of wheat Sunday night from John Eveuson, of White Bear town, took it to the elevator at Morris and sold it." The party referred to is W. H. better known as "Billy" Mathews, of this place, and the followiug additional particulars have been gleaned: Mathews wheu he left home had a mortgaged team, this iic dis posed of in Gleuwood or yiciuity, after which lie purchased another span of horses, paying $100 clown and giving a mortgage for the balance. This mortgago he iu ducid the owner to allow him to bring here for filing, but it is unnecessary to add that iu his hasty exit he forgot to attend to it. Alter leaving as sftited by the Press, Mathews helped himselt to about thirty bushels of wheat out of Evensou's granary, brought it here aud sold it. He then left for parts unknown, the last seen of hiui beiuji in the vicinity of Donnelly, Tuesday, ou his route noilh. One uf the saddest features of thedownlall of this young man is that a young and estimable wife and child have been cruelly wronged and per haps deserted. Mathews is a man who could and can do better thau he has yet doue, but he seemingly has no inclination to do as he would be done by. MARRIED. Graceville, ou Tuesday, Nov. 1st, by WM. CaUin, J.
