1 C'/ Prinsburg, Oct. 14.—The home of R, Roelofs was the scene of a very pretty home wedding last Wednesday, when their oldest daughter Dena was married to Fred Groeneveld of Pease, Minn. The ceremony was performed at two o'clock p. m. by Rev. N. Burgraaf, pastor of the Christian Reformed church here, and was witnessed by only relatives of the contracting parties. The bride was tastefully dressed in blue broadcloth with white silk and trimmings, while the groom wore the conventional black. The newly married couple will lemain here until the end of the threshing season, after which they intend to be at home to friends on their farm near Pease. Both bride and groom are well known and v\ell liked here, and we join their host of friends in wishing them smooth sailing over life's matrimonial sea. Mrs. Myer has been sick the past week, and Dr. McMahon of Raymond was called ro attend her last Saturday. We hope the lady may soon recover. Mrs. Arnold Plowman of Raymond visited at Albert BOCIMIIU'S home Tuesday afternoon. We failed last week to make mention of the No. 1 bab boy who had come to N. Decker and wife on Sunday, Oct. 6. Not that the baby was so small that he seemed hardly worth mentioning, oh, no, a fair sized boy is he, and his welcome was a warm one, be assured. A large crowd of charivariers did not forget the wedding last Wednesday. The tin kettle music kept on until midnight. Miss Elsie Roelofs was on the sick list last week. Mrs. Anna Kaperns of Pease, Minn., came down Tuesday to be present at the marriage of her brother Fred Groeneveld Wednesday. She left for her home Saturday. Nick Dubois was a Raymond visitor Friday. Talking of good yields and good piofits from farming this year, we rather guess that our old friend Patrick Lawler of Green Lake township is entitled to be heard from. A few days ago he threshed the barley grown on a 20-acre field and it yielded 1,000 bushels of extra good barley which sold at 90 cents a bushel. This makes a gross income of $45.00 per acre from a crop that requires as little attention as any ever raised on a farm. If anybody can beat this record we should like to hear from him. Another Victim of Shotgun. Julius Jorgenson, the 19-year-old son of C. Jorgenson of Pillsbury, was accidentally shot last Sunday afternoon by a companion, one of Wm. Henneberry's sons, with whom he was hunting. The weapon that inflicted the injury was a shotgun. The charge passed thru the flesh on the front of one of Jorgenson's legs a few inches above the knee. Fortunately the bone was not seriously injured, the shot just grazing it. The wound will lay the young man up for several weeks. The shooting took place at a slough about a mile west of town.—Kerkhoven Banner. C. A. Swanson, now of Minneapolis, with his wife and baby were visitors in this city over Sunday.

"Are you sure you know where the bouse is?" anxiously inquired the congressman. "I want my friend to get the note at once."

The large number of strikingly handsome gowns worn in the production of "A Royal Slave," which will be seen at the Willmar Opera House, tomorrow (Thursday) evening, is the occasion of much comment in every city where the play has been seen this season. It is interesting to hear the gasps of admiration and envy with which the ladies of the audience invariably greet each entrance of the women upon the stage. Miss Eunice Murdock as the Countess Inez carries off the honors in this matter of sumptuous costuming. She appears in six handsome gowns, each one a triumph of the tailor's art. The other members of the company are all appropriately and richly dressed. Inasmuch as the play deals with a royal family in the days of Castilian magnificence at Emperor Maximilian's court, it can be understood that the costuming of the production is one of the most important features. Prices, 75, 50 and 2o cents. New From Alberta. Harland, Alta., Oct. 8, 1907. The frost has damaged the crops of wheat and flax in northern Alberta so that wheat will be only screening.

Kruger last Tuesday John Kingsreiter and Herman Paetznick suffer ad the loss of their separator by fire and Mr. Kruegr two large stacks of wheat. The engine was being fired with flax straw and the strong wind prevailing at the time carried the sparks directly over the stacks. The machine was a brand new one and altho the engineer was successful in coupling to it, it was wedged between the stacks so tight that it could not be moved. The wheat was of extra good quality and with the high price prevailing at this time makes the loss a serious one.—Paynesville Press. BERKNESS, PETERSON & CO., WILLMAR, MINN. Mason W. Spicer, Owner.

All the blood in the body passes thru the kidneys once every three minutes. The kidneys filter the blood. They work night and day. When healthy they remove about 500 grains of impure matter daily, when unhealthy some part of this impure matter is left in the blood. This brings on many diseases and symptoms—pain in the back, headache, nervousness, hot, dry skin, rheumatism, gout, gravel, disorders of the eyesight and hearing, dizziness, irregular heait, debility, drowsiness, dropsy, deposits in the urine, etc. But if you keep the filters right you will have no trouble with your kidneys. John Warmark, living at 318 Twelfth street, Willmar, Minn., says: "Doan's Kidney Pills have been used in my family and they gave the most satisfactory results. My daughter had complained for some time of pains in her back accompanied by dizzy spells. She was in a much run down condition and her kidneys were diseased, so I procured a box of Doan's Kidney Pills for her at A. E. Mossberg's drug store. She took them as directed and Chey went at once to the seat of the tiouble. I am sure that from the good results that followed the use of Doan's Kidney Pills in my family that I can recommend them to others." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.

A BASEBALL STORY THAT GOT MIXED UP IN A CURVE The following weird tale is going the rounds of the press, the clipping in this instance being taken from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. It is supposed to have been told by Olhe Anderson, umpire of the Wisconsin State League: "In 1903 I was umpiring independent ball in Minnesota. Superiority of teams between the towns Willmar nnd Benson was to be determined by a double-header at Benson, July 4. It was one of the hottest days I have known. Benson won the morning game, 2 to 1, by a fluke play in the ninth. Willmar was somewhat disheartened, but for the afternoon game they were pitching Thielman, a twirler on whom every Willmar fan would bet his last dollar. About the end of the ninth inning Thielman began to show the effects of the heat —and the score was still a tie—had been in fact since the second inning. In the first half of the tenth Benson got a run by a base on balls, an error and a hit. Willmar fans looked pretty sick. Thielman was first up, and I could see that he was about 'down and out'. With two to three on him, however, he got lucky and biffed a single. The next man up, O'Toole, was a player with a head that he could use. He met the first ball fair and sqaure and got what had every appearance of being a home, join. Thielman started for the plate, got to second all right, staggered a little on the way to third, and fell flat on the bag. O'Toole came along and, knowing that two runs would win the game and that he could not score ahead of Thielman, picked him up and carried him to home plate and touched it himself. I decided that the two runs counted. A doctor came out on the field, looked at Thielman and pronounced him dead—overcome by the heat. That's what I meant when I said I knew of a player who died at third base and then scored a run anyway.'' There are a few minor inaccuracies in the above hair-raising story. In the first place, Willmar did not play at Benson in 1903. In the second place, Anderson did not umpire games in this locality that year. In the third place, Thielman was not with Willmar that year, but several years earlier. In the fourth place, Thielman is still pitching ball in eastern leagues. With these exceptions the story is probably correct. Lumber! Lumber! If you intend building bring your lumber bill to our WILLMAR office and get our prices for lumber from our PRIAM lumber yard. We will save you money on a small bill as (j* well as on a larger bill. NEW LONDON MILUNG CO,
