and in a few days the man was able to re
sume work again.
If you enjoy puzzles, and would like an
entirely new one to study cut, send 25 cts.
to Selchow &• llighter, 41 John street, New
York, for one of their sectional checker
board puzzles. It consists of a number of
pieces, which, when properly put together,
will make a perfect checker board, just
filling the box which encloses them. But
just how to arrange tlietn is what bothers
us, and it may take you seotral hours to
find out,
Morris "got left," as far as that military
company is concerned. Her young men
did not come to the front in a way calcu
lated to inspire confidence iu the success
of the enterprise, and it fell through. The
opportunity lost to Morris, however, has
beeu improved by Fergus Falls, as the
last company that can be formed under
existing laws and appropriations in this
state, was organized at that place last
week.
Our office "devil" went gunning one
day last week. When he returned, with
out ducks of course, it was quite evident
that he had ventured into the water a little
farther than the heighth of his rubber boots
would warrant, and that the gun showed
more energy in pressing backward than in
throwing shot forward. He does not now
seem to care much for recreation, and takes
a new aud desperate interest in his multi
tudiuous duties.

Work at the Metropolitan Hotel is pro
gressing finely. Considerable of painting
is being done. All rooms are beinc either
papered or calciinined, the whole building
is being elegantly furnished. Mr. Bemis
evidently has a very clear idea of what a
first ciass hotel should be, and is carrying
out that idea to perfection
in
fitting up the
Metropolitan. The hi t- ready for
the reception of guc^t- days.
Upon an evening i since while
the jovial and active vi of tin.'Stevens
County Bauk was rapid strides
toward home, he slipped in crossing the
track of St. P. M. & M. company and
would have fallen, had it not been for the
leaving of a flat car upon the side track iu
just the right position to catch him in his
fall. It so happened that his nose was th£
part which reached the car first and of
course it resulted in a slight change of
countenance. Mr. Rohne, groped his way
through the darkness around the car, paid
his respects to the railroad company for
their kindness in leaving flatcars upon
crossings and passed on.

BATHING MISHAPS.
Recently the gentlemen of a picnic
party down in Kentucky left the ladies and
went down to the creek to take a bath.
They placed their clothes on a rock in the
middle of the stream, and after a refreshing
swim waded down the creek for Iheir
clothes. The water which before was just
above their knees now covered their waist3.
They looked for the rock, but could see
nothing of it. Fifty yards from where they
had left their clothes, one of them saw a
part of his underclothes floating on the
stieam. Just then an acquaintance hap
pend along, to whom they told their pre
dicament, and he started off fo break the
news to the giris. They laughed till they
ached and then agreed to help.. One young
lady contributed her overskirt, another her
underskirt, and a third hr white petticoat.
They handed the things i w. acquaintance
and he carricd them over to the bathers.
They were a hard-looking crowd as,they
got into the wagons and started back. A
big gang was waiting tor them, and when
the man with the nightgown got off they
fairly howled themselves hoarse. Most of
them lost their watches and all their
clothes and money. A few saved their
shoes and underclothes aqd pnp two
their coats,

The advent of the cars upon the
Little Falls & Dakota railroad has given
a new impetus to life iu Morris. Present
activity aud present rapid growth is not
only a surprise to many who have been in
Mor lis since its infancy, but a common
subject of remark among visitors from
abroad and is indicative of a new era of
prosperity, upon which our thriving city
is now eutering.
Morris, the county seat of Stevens couu
ty, has, on account of her location, un
bounded resources, the wonderful fertility
and extent of the surrounding country,
and the enterprise and ability of her busi
ness men, far outstripped all surrounding
towns iu the rapidtly and extent of her
growth. Now added to all advantages of
the past is a competing line of railroad, a
choice of markets, both for things bought
and sold, reduced rates of transportation,
a ready supply of fuel, etc. These many
advantages are at once recognized, and
Morris now has a greater commercial im
portance than ever before. Business men
are enlarging their stores their trade is
increasing prices of real estate, both of
village and couutry property, are rapidly
advancing, and all classes of men have
entire confidence for the future.
Below we give a condensed business
directory, which will give outside readers

The foregoing directory has been very
hastily prepared, and no doubt js in many
respects incomplete. It will, however,
give a good general idea of the number of
Business men now located here.
In town there are three elevators, with
ample capacity for handling the grain
marketed. But a short distance from town
upon the Pomme de Terre river, are two
flouring mills, wliicji are crowded to their
utmost capacity to. supply their custom
and merchant trade. The
WATER POWER
upon this stream is but partiaPy devel
oped, and is sufficient to run other mills if
erected, or it can be utilized iu other
branchcaof manufacturing. Near town,
too, there are beds of clay, from which
the best quality of
BRICK
can be manufactured. One brick yard,
owned by Keuuer & Moore, is already in
operation aud there is so great a demand
for the superior quality of brick manufac
tured, that it is impossible to make them
rapidly enough to fill orders.
Iu many western towns the business
men have come simply for purposes of tem
porary speculation, and all their energies
are beut upou money making, while all
elso is neglected or forgotten. But Morris
is a decided exception to this rule. While
pushing their business interests, her citi
zens are also establishing pleasant and
permanent homes aud churches aud
schools, aud other means of moral and in
tellectual culture, are thoroughly appreci
ated and liberally sustained, Morris is
pre-eminently a place of
CHURCHES AND SCHOOLS.
The Catholic church, the first one built,
has, since its erection, become too small
for the congregation, and has been consid
erably enlarged. Since the building of the
Catholic church, a Congregational, Epis
copal and Methodist churches have been
erected, and all are now sustained by
prosperous societies. The schools too are
worthy of special mention. The public
schools are systematically graded (four
grades), and being under the direction of
efficient, progressive teachers, well sup
plied with necessary apparatus, are fully
abreast with any of the schools of the state.
Beside the public schools are the Catholic
parochial schools, which are sufficiently
large to employ two teachers, and are By
no means au unimportant factor in the ed
ucational interests of the place.
To Eastern people wishing to establish
themselves in the West, we know of, no
place which oilers so many inducements
for the establishing of business enterprises
or such graud opportunities for making
homes among refined and cultured people
ns this and we ask such to visit Morris
and examine her resources, facilities for
trade or manufacturing, note her religious
and educational institutions, and form
some estimate of her people by personal
contact with them, assuring them that if
they will but take the paius to do this, they
will be convinced that Morris is just such
a place as they wish for their future home.
