FROM LAND OF DIKES. Ortonville Legionaires as Tuneful Dutchmen, That e of the husky buddies who helped to set the "Watch on the lhine" back materially in the great war have beaten their swords, not plowshares but into ttning forks, was proven here Wednesday evening when the Legion boys from Ralph M. Spik Post, Ortonville, under the skill- ful direction of the Misses Kern and Jacobsen, produced the tuneful little operetta "Windmills of Holland" at the local theatre. And listen to something else! The first glimpse of the coy and short skirted chorus girls (?) also proved that they "roll 'era down" in Hol- land. We never imagined that the whole of Ortoville, not to speak of the Legion post alone, contained such a bunch of pulchritudinous male vamps as was revealed in this bunch of flaxen curled and grease painted darlings, with their dimpled little ]mees showing so bewitchingly. The operetta was a tuneful little offering, every number of which earn- ed a well-deserved encore from an audience tlmt caused the resurrection of the "S. R. O." sign, the seats being all occupied. Every member of the east showed merit in the singing of his part, this being particularly true of the principals, Messrs. Bolsta, Beck, Tragethon, Tweet, Zwiener, Mil- ler and Jaeobson. Ther must be something about the air down at Or- tonville that makes singers of them. "Vot iss idt."---Graceville Enterpri. Man Kills Self ,' ..

His head was blown en- tirely off. and i.to such small bits that none of it was found. The deed was committed during a fit of tem- porary insanity. Neighbors had been called upon when he developed sui- cidal tendencies, but before their ar- rival he had already committed the lee(].

A Club known as the Nut Bowl was organized by a number of little girls at the Hahn home last week. Each girl bears the name of a nut. Hazel .Hasslen (Chestnut) was elected Queen of the Nuts, Hazel Hahn, (Butter- nut) President, Minnie Whitenabel, (Cocoanut) Secretary, and Vinnie VanFleet (Niggertoe) Treasurer, and Esther Brennecke, (Hickorynut) vice- president. The girls had a good time at their first meeting. Mrs. Cynthia Miner of Frazee was guest of honor at a party given by Mrs. Katherine Sparrow and Mrs. Hayden French at her home on Satur- day afternoon at which 12 guests, all over sixty years of age, were present. A, ncedotes were given by those pres- ent of the earliest rBmembrance they had of any event or experience in their lives.

Under the caption "Nation's Best Musicians Assebled f o r Lyceum Orchestra" appearing in the Duluth News TribUne for Sunday., May 22, is  the picture of Dale Hess of this city, and with it the pictures of seven oth- ers who will play in this orchestra. Of the orchestra the News Tri- bune says: "Musicia'ns from all sec- tions of the country have been as- sembled together to for, m the orches- tra for the Lyceum theatre. The six- teen-piece orchestra, in addition to the two organists, shared honors with the picture, "Forbidden Fruit," of the premier performance yesterday. Indi- cations are that a treat is in store for music lovers of Duluth and range towns who attend the Lyceum thea- tre i.n the future, as the programs in- clude special numbers for the noon- (lay organ recitals daily, the de-iuxe performances in the afternoon and evening and the Sunday recitals and concerts in the afternoon and even- ing. Hess who is but nineteen years old, began playing a cornet when he was thirteen years old, and since has stud- ied faithfully with the best and most noted artists of Chicago and Mi.nea- polls. He has played in all the lead- ing theatres of Minneapolis, and with such organizations as the Minnesota State Band, the Minneapolis Municipal Band, and Arrigoni's Famous Ba, nd of Chicago. The best criterion of Hess's skill and capability is the class of musicians with which he is associated. Among the list are those who have studied for many years both here and abroad, and in no case is there one who has not had the benefit of more years of ex- perience and study. The members of the orchestra are drawn from the largest ,.musical centers including New York, Washington, Atlantic City, Cin- cinnati, Minneapolis and St. Paul. As a member of the Lyceum or- chestra he is playing first trumpet cornet. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. L. P. Hess of this city. Card of Thanks.

The tobacco growers of the Vir- gi'nia-Carolina belt are clamoring for a high protective tariff against Tur- kish tobacco, which is sold in compe- tition with the leaf tobacco from Vir- ginia and the Carolinas.

FROM LAND OF DIKES. Ortonville Legionaires as Tuneful Dutchmen, That e of the husky buddies who helped to set the "Watch on the lhine" back materially in the great war have beaten their swords, not plowshares but into ttning forks, was proven here Wednesday evening when the Legion boys from Ralph M. Spik Post, Ortonville, under the skill- ful direction of the Misses Kern and Jacobsen, produced the tuneful little operetta "Windmills of Holland" at the local theatre. And listen to something else! The first glimpse of the coy and short skirted chorus girls (?) also proved that they "roll 'era down" in Hol- land. We never imagined that the whole of Ortoville, not to speak of the Legion post alone, contained such a bunch of pulchritudinous male vamps as was revealed in this bunch of flaxen curled and grease painted darlings, with their dimpled little ]mees showing so bewitchingly. The operetta was a tuneful little offering, every number of which earn- ed a well-deserved encore from an audience tlmt caused the resurrection of the "S. R. O." sign, the seats being all occupied. Every member of the east showed merit in the singing of his part, this being particularly true of the principals, Messrs. Bolsta, Beck, Tragethon, Tweet, Zwiener, Mil- ler and Jaeobson. Ther must be something about the air down at Or- tonville that makes singers of them. "Vot iss idt."---Graceville Enterpri. Man Kills Self ,' ..

His head was blown en- tirely off. and i.to such small bits that none of it was found. The deed was committed during a fit of tem- porary insanity. Neighbors had been called upon when he developed sui- cidal tendencies, but before their ar- rival he had already committed the lee(]. Several fingers from one hand ere also blown off and the supposi- tion is that after lighting the fuse lm held the dynamite near his head. Sisseton Weekly Standard.

Miss Hulda John- son who has recently graduated as nurse in Minneapolis is their guest for the balance of the week. The Royal Neighbors of Milbank, S. D., will give a big (lance in the pavilion on the Fair grounds of that city on Wednesday evening, June 8. The proceeds will be used to furnish a room in the new hospital at Mii- bank. Tickets are $1.00 i'ncluding war tax. Everybody invited. Mr. and Mrs. J. It. Longnecker and son Curtis and family autoed to Ae- holt, Iowa, last Monday to visit their (laughter Mrs. W. A. Nagle and fam- ily, returning home Sunday. They made the return trip in nine snd a half hours, a distance of three hun- dred miles. They visited the Har- wood family at Hatfield on their way home. A Club known as the Nut Bowl was organized by a number of little girls at the Hahn home last week. Each girl bears the name of a nut. Hazel .Hasslen (Chestnut) was elected Queen of the Nuts, Hazel Hahn, (Butter- nut) President, Minnie Whitenabel, (Cocoanut) Secretary, and Vinnie VanFleet (Niggertoe) Treasurer, and Esther Brennecke, (Hickorynut) vice- president. The girls had a good time at their first meeting. Mrs. Cynthia Miner of Frazee was guest of honor at a party given by Mrs. Katherine Sparrow and Mrs. Hayden French at her home on Satur- day afternoon at which 12 guests, all over sixty years of age, were present. A, ncedotes were given by those pres- ent of the earliest rBmembrance they had of any event or experience in their lives. A delicious two course luncheon was served after the ladies had enjoyed a visit with Mrs. Miner. Tracy, Minnesota, was well repre- sented at Big Stone Lake during the opening day of the bass season, for the following parties were here from that city: Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Cole and daughter, Mrs. Grace Skuse, Ed. Gardner, Harold and Ross Main, Z. W. Dean, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Hockenhall and C. A. Gustafson. They succeeded in getting splendid catches and were delighted with their fishing trip. Cur- tis Cole and Rudy Herzog entertained them while here. Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Vancura and little son left Thursday morning for their h(me at Fessenden, N. D., where Mr. Vancura has a position in the Agricultural Extension work with headquarters at that place, having signed a contract for a year. They shipped their household goods on Wednesday. They expect tq return' to 01onv*:lle next year whenMr. Van- cura will take charge of his automo- bile agency for the sale of the Chan- dler, Cleveland a'nd Oakland cars. Anyone interested in these cars should require at Halls Garage as the agency has been left with a party at that place. i Stevens County to Have Baby Clinic The program for )aby clinics for June was announced this week by Miss Irene Labrie, county nurse. Be- ginning with June 7 and continuing thru June 11, baby clinics will be held in Morris, Donnelly, Chokio, Hart- cork and Alberta for the purpose of eterrnining how nearly 2erfect each Stevens county baby is.--Morris, Tri- bune.

Under the caption "Nation's Best Musicians Assebled f o r Lyceum Orchestra" appearing in the Duluth News TribUne for Sunday., May 22, is  the picture of Dale Hess of this city, and with it the pictures of seven oth- ers who will play in this orchestra. Of the orchestra the News Tri- bune says: "Musicia'ns from all sec- tions of the country have been as- sembled together to for, m the orches- tra for the Lyceum theatre. The six- teen-piece orchestra, in addition to the two organists, shared honors with the picture, "Forbidden Fruit," of the premier performance yesterday. Indi- cations are that a treat is in store for music lovers of Duluth and range towns who attend the Lyceum thea- tre i.n the future, as the programs in- clude special numbers for the noon- (lay organ recitals daily, the de-iuxe performances in the afternoon and evening and the Sunday recitals and concerts in the afternoon and even- ing. Hess who is but nineteen years old, began playing a cornet when he was thirteen years old, and since has stud- ied faithfully with the best and most noted artists of Chicago and Mi.nea- polls. He has played in all the lead- ing theatres of Minneapolis, and with such organizations as the Minnesota State Band, the Minneapolis Municipal Band, and Arrigoni's Famous Ba, nd of Chicago. The best criterion of Hess's skill and capability is the class of musicians with which he is associated.
