The game was one of the best of the season, being close and exciting from start to finish. Both sides played a fast clean game, and the article of ball seen by the many Herman visitors who accompaied their team, and the patriotic home rooters who stand by the boys in gray and red—win or lose, was as good »s could be seen hn any diamond.

Jones made a sensational catch of a long fly in the fourth inning. Pen nock was at bat and he hit the ball squarely on the nose sending it close to the left field foul him. As soon as the hit was made Jones started for it. After a long run he reached it and pulled it down amid the ap plause of the spectators. Spooner made a fine stop of Nel son s hot one in fifth. Paul also han dled four other changes. Felix was right in the game as usual. He made two hits out of four times at bat, and took care of thirteen men. His hit in the third scored Dao-| ielson and gave us our first run. O'Brien was the only other man to I solve Nelson's peculiar delivery fori more than one hit. He secured two I bits ont of four times at bat. Clark made two of the foui scores. I His clever base running together with some luck was responsible for it. ''Big" Graham carried off the bat ting honors of the day. He secured a three baggar and two singles out of four times at hat. Thelast game of the season will DP played on the local diamond next Monday evening.— Morris against Has Beens." The Glenwood Game. The Morris team had an easy pick ng with the Glenwood Kids Tues day says the Glenwood Gopher and carried the game away with (he score 14 to 3, which was vsry punk. The Kids put up the poorest exhi bition of baseball since the team started making Glenwood famous From the start of the game they never had a look in and the score fairly represented the strength of the teams as it were. Several of the team blew out fuses on er.sy chances early in the game, badly discouraging Ed. Abrahamson, the popular young twirler. He held out for the nine rounds, however, bnt was sadly out of kilter when backed into the round house at the close of the game His arm has not been right since he strained it, but he worked faithfully to keep the score down. Only four hits and nineteen errors tell the tail- The scoring started in the first round when F. Bigg made the circuit on a base on balls assisted by two costly errors. Morris did likewise. Grlenwood could do nothing much un til the sixth. McCauley's hit and another error brought in another run Morris scored in every inning except the second. They connected for hf teen hits including a triple and a double. The score— K Glenwood 1000011003 Morris 103312121 14 4 15 Reports Exaggregated. The Montevideo Commercial says of the reported attempted lynching near that place:— The actions of a few irresponsible parties in taking the law into their own hands as they diu Sunday night is strongly condemned by the law abiding and responsible citizeus gen erally. Not for love of the negro but for the respect of law and order Such actions only breed lawlessness disorder and often costs innocent lives. It is plain to every one that if mob violence is to be checked then Justice must be meted out on shorter notice than is usually the case. At least this is generally the excuse used by those conccrned and is the particular argument in the case at hand While at no time do we consider that th ire was any danger of lynching in the present case, there is a possibility of a delay for months. Sooner or later the state will be forced to take action in this matter and there is no case that demands more speedv action than the present one. The 12th judi cial district should set an example and take the initiative in establishing a new system. Instead of waiting until the regular November term of court a special grand jury should be called and the prisonsr indicted, tried, convicted and sentenced with no delajr. Exhibit at St. Louis.

She Was the First White Woman to Settle in Stevens County. Mrs. Lars Hegland of Scandia* died early Thussday morning after a long continued illness. It has been thought that she was improviug however, and the news of her death comes very unexpectedly. Mrs. Helge Hegland was born in Hjartdal. Thelemarken Norway in the year of 1832, and came to this coun try with her parents when 12 years of ag6. Came to Stevens county Minn with her husbaud Lars Heg land in 1866, and was as far as known the first white woman in Stevens county, and her daughter Helen is claimed to be the first white child born in this county. Her husband died about 18 years ago. When they first settled in Stevens county, St Clond was their nearest market place and she could relate many incidents of the hardship of pioneer life in the North Star state. She leaves three sons and three daughters viz: A. L, Hegland of Cyrus, L. L. Hegland Kensington and H. L. Hegland of Scan dia with whom she has been living. Her daughters are Mrs. H. C.

Plans for two Branches Grand Forks Herald: The Great Northern will extend its Pelican Ra pids oranch through the White Earth reservation, peralleling the Soo line survey of its projected Glenwood-St Vincent line for a considerable dis tance, to connection at Foss-on with its cross country line fiom Duluth to Carman. The route of the Great Northern extern ion, as given on semi-official authority, is from Pelican Rapids via Black Mills, Oak Lake, Richwood, White Earth. Beaulieu and Hans ville to Fosston. Thn territory cover" ed lies between the Great Northern's main line west and its Park Rapids branch, and has no railway facilities at present except the cross line of the Northern Pacific in the extreme southern portion. It is considered obable that the White Earth reser vation will be opened within a few years «*ffoniing, with the extensive agricultural districts north and south or if, an excellent field for railway pnfr-rprisi,. The Soo line has already made surveys through the WhitQ Earth reservation paralleling the line pro posed bv the N. Its object ive point is St. Vincent, where it can obtain a connection with the Cana lisn Pacific and a direct, route to Winnipeg. The course of the survey is from Glenwood via Union Lake, Alexandria and Miltona in Douglas county, Parker'p Prairie, Henning Otter Tail and Gresham in Otter Tail countv, to Detroit in Becker county, thence almost due north to a cross ing of the Great Northern's Fosston extension in Polk County, north through Crow Wing, and north and northwest to St. Vincent on the inter national boundary. St Paul-Winnipeg business is now contro led by the Northern Pacific and the Great Norhern, which have the only line to the boundary with direct Canadian lines to Winnipeg. The Canadian Pacific has long watch ed the growth of traffic on these line*, and for four years has been working at a plan, for a reasonably direct rout" into St- Paul. This is to be afforded by the Soo line construction. The government has given each road equal rights to cross the White Earth reserva'ion and permission to construct parallel lines. A statement secured from reliable sources yesterday is as follows: The Soo will have its line into St. Vincent in operation within eighteen months. Surveys are practically completed and active construction is soon to begin. A party of leading offoials, including General Passenger Agent Callaway, haye just returned from a carriage trip over the survey, and pronounce the country traversed an exceptionally rich one, and the route one that is free from engineer ring difficulties aud will afford easy construction.

A land company known as theSher burn Land Co. of Sioux Rapids, la has had agents thru this vicinity list ing" lands which are for sale, and a number have listed their lands with this company. Upon investigation these farmers have discovered that the listing of lands is nothing more than a graft and a good one at that. The company has a neatly printed contract which they ask the farmers to sign and which a great many would sign unless they read it over very carefully It goes something like thia: "Gentle men:—Please try to sell above des cribed land for four months or until this list is sooner terminated as here in provided at $— per acre," Then it goes on and says, and this is where the graft comes ini When you sell the land or otherwise perform your part of the agreement I will pay you $2 per acre commission." To bring the contract down to a few words th farmers signing it agrees to give the company 32 per acre for simply no thing. All the company agrees to to do is to "try to sell" the land foi that amount. R. T. Eastman, the agent who listed a few farms in this vicinity, explained the matter by say ing that it meant asa e of the land or no commission, but after the agree ment was sent in to the head office it meant just what it said. We were shown a letter this week direct from the head office *\hich states right out that their part of the contract is ful filled by merely ''trying to sell" the land We therefore warn the farmers to give these agents a wide berth, turn the degs loese on them, when hey step in your yard for their object is to skin you as can be seen right on the face of the contract. Their ex planation has nothing to do with it as the head office will hold you re sponsible for the contract you signed Patronize your homeland agents and be on the safe side, for they live ri«?ht and would not do any thing that was not right.—Raymond News.
