What is the matter with the base ball players of Pierz? Why don't they get together and organize': A number of our players are out of town but there is plenty of material left, and when those, who are attending school at St. John's and St. ad, return we should be able to get a good team together. Some time ago two acres of ground in lower town was rent* yed from Carl Kapsner for five years, for a baseball ground and it has already been leveled off and put in shape. A grand stand will soon be erected thereon. We would suggest that the president of the Athletic club call a meeting at once with a view to organizing a baseball team. HOME TALENT PLAY A SUCCESS "A Modem Ananias' Full House Dr ew Play and Dance Most Enjoyable Affair of the Seasonal WILLIAM HANSMAN PASSES AWAY William Hansman died suddenly at his home in Lastrup last Saturday with paralysis. *•» i . 11 n _. LINDBERGH LETTER For probably three or more weeks Congress will consider the Interstate Commerce bill, which is by far the most important bill to be considered during this session. Everybody is di Inferiority of Catalog Mouse Goods One of our hardware exchanges recently* published a somewhat sarcastic communication from a dealer who in discussing the question of catalog house competition said the trade papers had proved be- 3Tond preadventure of a doubt that the catalog bouses handle inferior goods. Thus, said he, that phase of the question had A been settled. Of course, he meant that altho the trade papers frequently had made this assertion, they had proved nothing. Coincidental with the publication of the aforesaid communication was the appearance of an article in the house organ of a certain manufacturer of cream separators, the writer of which article proved beyond doubt that the founder of a large catalog house, a man who owns four farms, uses thereon cream separators of a standard make, which is never sold by catalog concerns, but thru dealers only. The significance of this fact is realized by those who know that the catalog house in question is the one which makes a greater "splutter" over tbe L cream separator it sells than over any other item in its immense list. The reader of its J cream separator advertising is asked to believe that the separators sold by the house are ab- solutel perfect and superior in every* in way to all other machines on the market, but evidently7 the head of the concern refuses to believe, else why does he use another make on his farm? In all probability, if further investigation were made it would be shown that practically all of the machinery and u- tensils used on these same farms are of standard make and not the kind sold by the house founded by the owner. If a machine sold by a mail-order house is not good enough for the head of the concern, surely it is not good enough for any fanner. The best is always ** the cheapest. Other proof of the inferiority • • - - i. _.... The Home talent plav put on at Faust's Opera House Tuesdav n'ght by the Pierz Dramatic club was a decided success in every respect. A large number of people from Little Falls, Buckman and other outside points attended and together with the home people swelled the attendance to the full capacity of the hall, The efforts of the amateur p'avers seemed to be highly appreciited, judging from the applause and expressions of praise that were heard on ev- erv side. Taking into consideration the many difficulties that have to be contended with in producing a home talent play it is right and proper that they should not be criticised as severely as professionals. Those who look part in this play feel very grateful for the cordial reception given ehem and appreciate highlv the flittering words of commendation received. As the writer was one of the histrionic performers himself we are not in a position to comment upon the performance in detail We will only say that we were all plain ordinary "stars" ihce being* no meteors or comets and all shone with equal luminosity.

The deceased was born in Westphalen, Germany and was 59 years old at the time of his death. He emigrated to America 17 years ago and lived on his farm in Buh town 15 years with his family.He was well known in this part of the county and had many friends. He is survived by his wife and four children: Mrs. John Eller, Mrs. John Gobi John Hansman and Joseph Weg- man. The funeral ceremonies were held at the St. John's church in Lastrup at 10 o'lock a. m., Rev. John Sand officiating. Will Celebrate Anniversary Joseph Melhart, who has been in a helpless condition for many months, being so crippled with rheumatism that he is o- bliged to lie upon his back constantly, desires to announce that he will celebrate the tirst anniversary of the beginning of his illness by asking the people to call on him on April 30 and make such donations as they* see fit. As it is obvious that Mr. Melhart and family are unable to support themselves, steps should be taken to look after their support in the regu- ar wTay provided by law.—Ed. Assessors Meet A meeting of the assessors of the county will be held in the court house at Little Falls 'April 38 for the purpose of fixing uniform rates through out the county on all taxable personae property.

The kind of discriminations that are made against the patrons of railway and express companies in the Sixth District are probably made against people of all rural districts under like circumstances, and it is hoped to get the bill in shape to remedy as many of the present difficulties as possible. I can make use of letters, dealing with actual conditions, to good advantage in talking over the provisions of the bill with other Members of Congress who represent districts with like conditions. The conditions now in the House present better opportunities for amendments than heretofor, and I wish to get an expression of conditions so as to be in position to know what amendments ought to be made and supported. The letters should be sent as soon as possible, because public opinion helps very much, as it should, in shaping legislation, and letters that state facts and experiments of shippers and people who deal with railways and express companies will liavew-eight. I would like tomake jfree use of the letters with other Members, but any- person who wishes his not to be used in that way may indicate that his letter is personal, and in such case the letters will be treated as confidential and will not be shown.

Of course, we all know that catalog houses have some standard lines of goods, and we know also that when their prices on such lines are carefully7 analyzed and compared with the dealers' prices, they are found in many cases to be practically the same, in some cases higher, all things considered. However, some standard lines are sold by these houses without profit for advertising purposes, a fact which explains their low quotations on many goods. These pric rely as bait. Fortunately- for the implement dealer, the catalog houses do not get many standard lines of the goods in which he is tasted. And when a manU- this their hour • f affliction.

Ships With Perforated Sails Some time ago the idea was advanced that if a number of small holes were made in a ship's square-sails, allowing the wind to rush thru, the usual accumulation of dead air would be prevented and the sail would draw better. For refreshments after "a sail'' nothing is better than golden grain belt, beer, and it is a un iversal favorite. Its clear, sparkling purity and wholesome tonic properties make it an ideal drink.

The first public exhibition of n "happy family" in EajdauU was given about fifty years ago, when there were ii a monkey, a eai, several i*at_ and three or four pigeons in one cage. Tin- monkey wits on excellent terms wiih the cat so long as puss would allow bin] to warm himself hy cuddling her; otherwise he would show liis vexation by slyly giving her tall a nip wit li his teeth. The birds perched ou the cat's back and petted at her far. and the rats were as friendly with their natural enemy as if she were one of their own sort. A lady walking in the Isle of Wight observed a little kitten curled up on a mossy bank taking a midday nap. As she stopped to stroke it a hawk swooped down and. pouncing upon thb kitten, hid it from light. The lady, fearing for the life of the kitten, tried to rescue it, but the hawk firmly faced her, stood at bay and refused to move. She hastened to a fisherman's cottage and told the Inmates of the impending tragedy. "It's always so," they said, laughing. "That hawk always comes down if any one goes near the kitten. He has taken to It and stays near at baud to watch whenever it gaes to sleep." The lady, greatly Interested, made further Inquiry and learned that the kitten's mother had died, after which the nursling was missed for several days. One day the hawk was seen about the cottage picking up scraps of meat ami carrying them to the roof of VILLAGE COUNCIL MEETS The village council met Monday evening and organized. The members of the council qualifying were: Jacob Neisius, president; Frank Grell, Recorder; C. E. Gravel, Joe Ries and Mel Wermerskirchen. The presi dent appointed tbe following members as standing commit- ties for the ensuing year: M. Wermerskirchen, streets; C. E. Gravel, buildings; J. Ries, claims. F. X.

CHOIR WILL GIVE ENTERTAINMENT An entertainment consisting of a comedv drama, dialogues, musical selections etc. will be given under the auspices of the St. Cecelia's choir, next Sunday evening* at Faust's hall. As the proceeds of this entertainment are to be used to defrav expenses incurred by the improvements made upon the church it should and undoubtedly will be well attended. Knew Where He Was. "When I was studying in Boston," said a musician, "they used to tell a about ;. man named Harper, an odd old character, who played a trombone in e ae eef the small theaters there. One time they were rehearsing a new overture. Throughout the pie< e Harper was a little behind the rest of the men. Before they started it ond time tho leader reproved Harper for not coming in more regularly with the other players. When they attempted it again Harper came ia, as usual, two or three heats behind time. The leader stopped and, after letting loose a lot of profanity, demanded to know If the trombonist knew he Was playing about half a dozen notes behind the others. "Ilarper redded.

During the Uusso Turkish war, when Europe was always on the verge of a crisis and Russian statesmen were most anxious to know what England would do under given circumstances; a lady came up to him suddenly at a ball and said: "I hear that the Russians have made i aud entered Constantinople," hoping, no deeuh;, that he woulel be surprised into some iudis- creet expression. He merely replied: "Indeed'. And I suppose the sultan has conferred on them the order of the Turkish bath!" The lady continued gravely: "And they say in Paris that If England does not interfere the eastern question is settled iu favor of Russia."
