Congratulations for Browns Valley The Tr ivi'iNe County Seat Contest I) »oi:le ui lior Favor. The Traverse County stmt content has been Iei*!,l«*l by .Ttnljfe Brown in favor of Browns Valley. Mr. Spooner received notice of the decision on Mon day morning of this week. This case is one of great importance to Traverse county and especially so to Browns Valley, it has been pending a long time and has awakened a great deal of interest. The history of the case in brief is as follows: Traverse county was organized by an act of the legislature in 1SS1, and Browns Valley was designated as the county seat. In the legislative act was inter polated a clause authorizing the elec tors of the county to vote at the com ing fall election as to whether the county seat should remain at Browns Valley or be removed to some other point not mentioned. C. F. Wash burn seized upon this opportunity to lay out the town site of Maudada and remove the county seat to that point. The election resulted in a majority of votes for Maudada. Contest was im mediately begun by Browns Valley parties through Messrs Spooner & Grifiin attorneys at Morris to set aside the election and proclamation of the governor and the contest was based principally 011 two points: First, the unconstitutionality of the law under which the election was held and second, the illegality of the Maudada tovvnsite. The contest has been pend ing since Nov. 1881. The Maudada side has been represented by C. M. Stevens of Herman and Col. C. D. Kerr of St. Paul who have given more than usual attention to the matter and have stubbornly contested fverv point of ground passed over in the trial and made the best of their side oi' the contest. The case is now decided i' favor of Browns Valley. Upon which point the decision is based we art* not informed. This case has caused Messrs Spooner & Griffin a great deal of hard work. Mr. Spooner gave his personal atten tion to the management of the case to the collection of facts examined and cross-examined all witnesses and with wi at the result speaks very plainly The trial of the case show* that i lit* people of Browns Valley do not propose to give up the county seat unless it be legally taken from them an 1 that they will work to gether for the best interests of their plarv-i *1*» fi it U »-i-srs Xp & Griffin when important case-* are in trusted to their care will give such at tention to them and have such a fund of experience and ability as will suc cessful protect all the interests of their clients. Was Jo'ins!)]) Murdered. Herman Herald The mystery sur rounding the (iiss inpe vrance of Ole Johnson, or Ole II tlvor, two years ago is becoming deeper than ever. Two weeks ago we published an ac count of how a letter was alledged to have been received from him at Win «epeg inquiring after his claim, etc. It now transpires that the person who stated that he received the letter, was Arne Bergerson, a brother of Hans ^Bergerson, u*ho was last seen with Ole Johnson in Herman and vfho was strongly suspected of murdering the mtasing man at that time. Ole Joba fion'g brother late'y went to Arne Bergersmi and requested him to pro duce the letter. He refused to show SI aud has since avoided the friends of the missing man. it is now known ffeat Hans Bergerson has skipped out whfoh leads Johnson's friends to sus pect that the letter business was a trick of the Bergersons and that Hans Bergerson is really Ole Johnson's murderer. Thelattev's relatives and j&ieiids are much excited over the matter and last Saturday night they eame to Herman to procure a warrant for Bergerson'* arrest. As the arties are residents of Stevens county our officials refused to do anything. Johnson's friends will not let the matter drop however. Sensational developments may be looked for in the case as Arne Bergeron's myster ious actions are pretty strong evi dence of his possessing some know ledge of Johnson's probable murder A&d Hans Bergerson's sudden disap pearance, coupled with this, would seem to fasten guilt conclusively up on the latter.

An opportunity to purchase gro ceries at cost is one that does not often present itself. Such an opportunity however now exists at Good & Bris bine's and it is being improved.

HUTCHINSON, [The following verses were written on tbt occasion of toe death of the wife of a brother Minister, anil appeared In the Kentish Mer cury, England One more spirit departed, One voice less in tlie song Ono more tender hearted Joined iu the heavenly throng. One more iiearth-stone darkened By a presence passed afar, One more spirit has hearkened And gone where angels are. One more through the portAl, While we outside may stay Ono more spirit immortal Living In endless day, One :i:ore singer in glory, Joining the hymn above, Repeating, in heaven, the story Of God's redeeming love. GLKNWOOI), Jan. 2,1888. The holidays havo come and passed away, Each In its order, dny by day— The Nation's natal in mid summer time, When stalks forth freedom in Its prime. Thanksgiving day, to many people comes With pies, cakes, puddings full of plums Then Christinas, showing forth the Savior's birth, Whose glory shines o'er all the earth And Netf Year's, happy dawning of the year. When kindred meet with firends most dear The-ie, In their season, fill the land with Joy And pleasure smiles without alloy. How many dear ones to the tomb have gone, Wliosmilod the holidays upon Iu years by past, but who with us no more Will witness thein, as oft before! We hope they have eternal holiday, Witli pleasures that pass not away We hope that we may even join them there, Beyond the pale of earth-born care. Years roll their rounds, bright with their holi days, T. pes of the bliss of endless praise. Now toil, and care, and pain, our earthly lot, lu Heaven will ever be forgot. —A.C. L. On Attending Church. Mr. EDITOR. Permit me through your columns to address myself to those who have not recently made it a point to attend the public services of the sanctuary. I fear that there are many who in the west forget the good old ways. To such I would make a kindly appeal and ask them whether it would not be advisable at the beginning of the year,—a season of frosh resolves—to determine upon something better in the future. I am satisfied that the absence of many from public worshipis uot due to hostility to religion. Indifference rath er skepticism is the bane of today. We are all sensible of the importance of those questions connected with the soul's welfare. And how much more capable we ^re, as a rule, to fight the buttles of life when the light of the sanctuary is brought to bear upon many of our trials. So David of old ibuud aud 30 the men and women of to-day may know. How much depends upon habit! We build our characters in a great measure by our habits. Business men nave founded their succcess to a con siderable extent by their business customs and men and women should endeavor to accustom themselves to .ittendance at public workship. It is easy for parents and guardians to absent themselves from the house oi prayer and the younger branches ol the home to imitate them. If all these who have betn accus tomed in their earlier days to attend services: if tNl the children were (rained to look upon going to church as a privilege not easily to be relin •piished all the churches in the town w uId be filled audI *ay thoughtfully they ought to be. it is just possible that there may be young men who may assume that the cultured and thoughtful do not generally attend services and have given up religion. This is a great mistake. Take the religions element out of our vast literature from Shakes pliere to George Eliot and wiu*t have yqu left? Take the religious element out of art and what pictures would b wbrth preservation? Remove the christian element from ourcivilization and what would the residue be? It is no use having schools and churches in our midst, as communities if our children are not sent to the former and we do not attend ourselves and take them with us to the latter. Let us have these and let us use them Let us become living stones in the great spiritual temple. Let us seek to grow wiser, nobler, truer men and women and with the intention let those who have hitherto neglected the means of graoe seek to improve upon the past and thus wise from the dead past to greater things.
