Milwaukee east and west line which
runs through Marshall and Roberts
Counties' only fourteen miles will
separate its terminus and Grenville,
the town to which the Fairmont &
Vehlen railroad is already built.
In view of this fact the Watertown
Commercial club lias taken up the
proposition of getting the two roads
to join, to a make north and south
line extending into North Dakota.
A committee from the Commer
cial club made a trip to Vehlen last
week, met Julius Rosholt, president
of the new road, and talked the
proposition over with him. They
returned very] much encouraged
over the outlook, and report that
Mr. Rosholt will be the guest of

Thirty Six Million Dollar Auto

over four hundred cars a day.
At least is what the local agent
for the Maxwell Motor Cars claim
as he has secured a very novel en
tertainment in the form of a mov
ing pietuure lecture which will be
free to the public at the
Unique Theatre on the evening
Monday Dec 7th.
Four Thousand feet of flim show
every detail in the manufacture of
the well known Maxwell 25.
Beginning with the steel mills,
the work is carried down on thru

a travalogue embracing scenes in
California, the virgin forests of
Washington and Oregon and
other picturescue views in differ
ent points in the United States,
including races and hill climbs,
are to be shown.
Mr. Didrikson, an expert from
the Maxwell Factory will accomp
any the pictures and give an inter
esting lecture as they are shown.
We feel that such instructive as
well as interesting and intertaining
these should be encour-
aged by the residents of Sisseton
and hope that all will attend.
All cross roads in this, and
every other county in the state,
should be equipped with sign
boards. The sooner this is done
the better it will be not alone
for the auto-tourists who in
large numbers are crossing ottr
state, but for the people of our
own county who have occasion to
make trips into territory un
familiar to them.
A generous act never fails of
its reward, and when township
trustees, or county commission
ers, or whoever should do this
work can perform so splendid
a service in the line of official
be clone.
In many parts of this, and
other states, people of our county
have appreciated the kindness
of those who have placed sign
boards and guide-posts at the
various cross roads, and we
should return the compliment.
Some of the principal roads in
the county have already been
marked, but there are some im
portant cross roads left unmark
ed, and the need of guiding signs
at such places is great.
In ox-cart days small thought
was given to guide posts. When
the horse crowded the ox from
the highways, guid-posts assum
ed a larger importance. But it
remained for the automobile to
bring the cross-roads sign posts
to its full usefulness.
These are days of long tours.
On any day one may see machines
bearing the license tag of a dozen
states, many of them distant.
The country is criss-crossed
with tourist-routes, and scarcely
any territory daunts the man be
hind the steering-wheel. Auto
clubs have done much work in
erecting guide-posts, but the
task of properly posting the
highways, even of a single county
is well nigh endless.

day evening at about 7 o'clock
when Messrs. 13. F. Herington,
John Bel lach. Win. Hölscher,
and Jesse Maxwell were return
ing from a drive in the country
in r. Herington's ca r.
The accident happened on the
grade in front of the old S. T.
Lasell place just east of town.
It being rather dark, Mr. Har
ington who was driving got a
little too close to the edge
of the embarkment and the
car skidded and went over mak
inga complete turn and lighting
on the top with all four wheels
in the air. The occupants were
pinned under the car, but in
someway Messrs. Bellach, Hel
schen and Maxwell succeded in
getting out from under the car
and they assisted Mr. Herington
who was pinned in such a way
that lie could not move at all.
None of the gentlemen were
very seriously wounded although
all of them received a severe
jolting Mr. Maxwell had his
knee badly wrenched and Mr.
Herington received bad bruises
about the hip and back. The
other two gentlemen received
slight injuries but nothing
The car was badly battered, a
couple of wheels were broken to
smitherines and the top and
wind schield were demolished.
All four gentlemen may thank
their lucky stars that they were
not more seriously hurt for con

the car was in, it is certainly a
miracle that they all escaped
serious injuries.—Waubay Ad

Mary Honey
setfc Died
Saturday Night.
The community was Idened
last Sunday when announcement
of the death of Mary Honeysette
was made known. Mary had.
been a patient sufferer for a long
while and every thing within the
power of human ability had' been
exercised to ward off the ravages
of the disease. The deaseased
was well known and one of the
most popular young ladies of
Sisseton. Being only seventeen
years old, it seems hard for her
relatives and friends to part with
her just in the bloom of woman
hood. She leaves besides her
father and mother, one brother
and two sisters to mourn her
untimely death. The funeral
was held at the Catholic church,
liev, Father Kettler conducting
the solemn rites, and she was laid
away in the Sisseton Cemetrey.
Mary Honeysette was a model
young lady. Her faults were few
while her virtues were many and
she was admired by all who
Knew her. A kind and dutiful
daughter and affectionate loving
sister, her departure from their
family circle causes grief in the
home which words are powerless
to assuage.
The long cortege of sorrowing
friends that followed the remains
to the grave, and the beautiful
floral offerings that were strewn
about the casket gave ample
proof of the esteem in which the
deceased was held by members
of the community. The scene
at the grave was sad in the ex
treme and most affecting.
Tears of sympathy for the grief
stricken family trickled down
the cheeks of all unrestrained.
In the sad hours of death,
words of condolence fail to re
lieve the sorrowing and aching
hearts, but our sorrows are
made lighter when we are re
minded that sooner or later Death
mankinds universal foe, will in a
few short years, have gathered
us all, one by one, to that land of
everlasting peace, where now
