Reports received by the mineral land department of the state auditor's office indicate that the season will be unusually late this year, but that the total amount shipped will be close to the output of 1913, when almost 3,- 000,000 tons of ore was sent from the state mines. * +' + Colonel Thomas D. Piste is dead at the home of his daughter in St. Paul. He served in the Confederate army as a member of an Alabama regiment and after the war was elected to the legislature of that state.

Lust, living-about seven miles east of the villag-e lost his house by tire about five o'clock Tuesday evening". The fire, it seems, started from the roof. Mrs. Lust, who was home alone with the children did not discover the fire until she began to feel the heat from above. When tlie flames were in full progress, Chas. came home, but it was then too late to save much of the household g-oods. The loss is estimated at §700. Play Staged at the Parish Hall Meets With Grand Success. Base Ball Meeting Last Saturday Eve A Baseball meeting- was held last Saturday evening, with the object of perfecting- a local organization to promote the national g-ame. The following- officers were elected: Andrew H. Paust, Manager. R. M. Stoll, Treasurer. F. X. Virnig-, Secretary. R. M. Stoll, and Frank J. Gil- bride were appointed to gather donations to pay for grounds. The first game of the season will be played with Royalton, on the Royalton diamond next Sunday. Last Sunday evening, un Ier the able guidance of Rev. Fr. Siegler, local talent scored a great hit, before a packed house, in "Dark Before Dawn", and "Der Dumme Joseph". The former, a Civil War Drama in two acts vividly pictured the warfare of 1861 and the campaig-n in the far South. It was redolent with the atmosphere of the Sunny South. A southern lad, actuated by high moral principle enlists at the outbreak of hostilities under the federal forces, and as the war progresses is delegated to the South as a spy. Captured he is condemned to suffer the fate of a spy. Tlie Climax of the story is arrived at when the climax of the story is arrived at when the son is poroled aud allowed to remain at home under the g-uardinship of his father who is a staunch supporter of the confederate couse. The second play of the evening's program, a four act german comedy illustrating typical scenes of peasant and barrack life in Germany during the eighteenth century proved a roar from start to finish. "Der Dumme Joseph", a young rustic lad who is constantly committing liimself while at home and who by his stammering is the ever increasing cause of merriment, being drafted into the army, causes his superiors great trouble with his strange antics. After a series of escapades he returns home not "Der Dumme Joseph," but "Joseph der Un- teroffizier. Casper Thommes as "Der Dumme Joseph", did exceptionally well as a comedian. Teddy Wermerskirchen as "Little Jim" is desering of favorable comment, and so is Minnie Rauch as Joseph's Mutter.

No doubt one of the advantages of this machine, because parts of it are taken from cream separators, is that it will separate cream from pure unadulterated milk, in addition to the ordinary road work and regular contributions to the garagist. It is not unreasonable, then, if this machine becomes a success, to expect to see farmers funnel milk into the radiator ;>nd catch cream and butterfat from the exhaust pipe. city, but he was dead before the doctor arrived.
