A horrible accident happened at Moorhead about 5 P. M., on Monday aiternoon. Ben Haroldson, a farmer of Fiom, Minn., came .driving into town witl his wife and tfr ' children in a Ford car, one of the liren be- ing a daughter who was to registe as a student at th-iate!Teachers College. Haroldson, who was at the wheel, drove onto the railroad cross- ing of the Great Northern, when the shouts of a brakeman standing near attracted his attention. Haroldson, then instead of continuing in his at- tempt to cross the track, turned his ,machine on the crossing directly in the path of a strirg of box cars that were being shunted across the street. A street car that was parked at the crossing blocked Haroldson's view of the railroad track in the direction from which te shunted cars were moving. When struck the automobile skidded for a few feet, then overturn-[ ed and was crushed under the wheels of the box car as the members of the illfated family screamed with fright. Mr. Haroldson, daughter Gladys 9 I years old; and son Kermit, 6 years old;] were killed instantly, Mrs. Haroldson[ was so severely injured that she died I a few hours after at the hospital, and Miss Emma Haroldson, 21 years, the daughter who was being taken to Moorhead to enroll at the Teachers' College, suffered a broken leg and may have received internal injuries. There are four other chil&en at home, it is said, all boys, left to mourn the sad fate of parents and other members of the famil.--Warren Sheaf.

Free Movement Of Lightweight Hots Higher Prices And Expectancy Of Lower Markets Later On Probable Factors Prompting Increased Re- ceipts----Cattle Lower For Week-- Lambs $13.50. Tuesday's Closing Cattle 4,000. Killing classes gener- ally steady. Calves 1,500. Weak, ex- treme top $10.75, packer top $10.25 Hogs 6,500. About steady, bulk lights $10.00, packing sows averag- ing about $8.00. Sheep 2,000. Steady to strong. South St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 26, 1922: Receipts of cattle the first two day this week are the largest since last October, approximately 16,600 head, as against 12,700 the same per- iod last week. Monday's trade was featured by weakness in practically all branches, traceable to liberal re- ceipts at all leading centers and bearish advices. In a general way declines figured 15 to 25c, exceptions canners, cutters and bulls, weak, hea- vy feeders dose to steadD veal claves 25 to 50c lower. Today's market ruled generally steady at the decline noted above. Fed steers are quoted nominally $8.50 to $11.00 or possibly higher on prime offerings, such kinds not be- ing included. Grass-fat steers brought mostly $5.50 tb $7.50, a few odd lots above, common native :grass offer- ings down to $5.0.0. A spread of $3.50 to $4.75 is now taking bulk of grass-fat cows and heifers, a few range cows making $5.00, with range heifers on up to $6.75. Canners and cutters steady, $2.25 to $3.25. Bulls weak, bulk bolognas today $3.50 to $3.75. Veal calves uneven, 25 to 50c lower than close of week, bulk light veals to packers $10.00 to $10.25, extreme top $10.75. Stocker and feeder market has been uneven, increased receipts re- sulting in weakness on anything but good and choice fleshy feeders, the break, from the close of last week on most classes figuring 15 to 25e. Gooa and choice fleshy* feeders are now quoted $6.25 to $7.50, selected up to $7.75, general run of stockers and feeders $4.50 to $6.25. An advance of 50c or more in hog prices during the week and expectan- cy on the part of many that winter hog values will be lower are probably infuencing an increased movement of light hogs marketward. Bulk of the good lights sold today at $10.00, 250 to around 325-pound butchers $8.50 to $9.50 or better and packing cows mostly $7.75 to $8.25. Bulk of fat lambs at $13.50 are about 25c above last Tuesday's dose, seconds from $7.00 to $8.00. Fat ewes to packers largely $4.00 to $5.75 breeding ewes $6.00 to $8.25. CHAS BRUCE .[ American Legion Notes [ An Asset To Any Community "A good live Legion post is an asset to any eommtmity," declares the Nobles County Democrat of Ad- rian, Minn. "I some towns in Minne- sota the Legion has come to play a far more important and beneficial part than the commercial club. When ,moved by the old spirit of 1917 there is something about a bunch of bud- dies that is unbeatable. They can accomplish anything. They always bring home the desired results, pro- vided they have a Httle cooperation from the community. Every citizen of "Adrian should boost for the local Legion Post and urge all veterans to become active members." Proud of Their Home State Carrying an exhibit designed to sprea d the name and fame of Minne- sota throughout the world, Gopher Legionalres will travel to New Or- leans for the National Convention Oc- tober 1640, on a special train over the Mi & St. L. and Illinois Central, leaving Saturday October 14th, St. Paul 6:00 P. M., Minneapolis 6:45 P. M., arriving at New Orleans 9:00 A. M. Monday, October 16th in time for the opening convention session. The average cost of the trip from Minne- sota points varies from $67 to $80, which inchdes use of pullman sleeper at New Orleans and on the going and returning trips.

Kraemer & Hog, of Minneapolis, were successful bidders on the grade construction at $40,399.09 and the Minneapolis Bridge Co., was award- ed the bridge contract at a price of $26,578; the total cost being $66,917. 09. The new road when constructet, Auditor Carney states, will reach from the high point of the present road on the north side of the river to the top of the hill on the soun side of the river, joining the pres- ent road again at that point. The distance covered by the new road s approximately one nd a half miles, with a 15 foot grade and two con- crete bridges. Between the two points none of the prent road will be included in the new road and the two present bridges will be destroy- ed when the new road is opened up, and traffic will not be interfered with on the old road during the construc- tion period.--Appleton Press.

Bandits Foiled In Robbery Our sister village, to the nortl came near getting into the metropol- itan class last Friday night, being all set for a bank robbery. About three o'clock Saturday morn- jng, Even Oscarson, who was up early preparing for the opening hour for hunting ducks, heard an explosion and discovered that some one was in the First National Bank. The vil- lage marshall Frank Clarey, was aroused, and he and O. J. Radde and one or two others were soon trying to locate the robbers. The yeggs, in the meantime hear- ing the noise in the street had made a hurried getaway. They were seen by some of the men, backing a car out of a blacksmith repair shop be- longing to Radde, and several shots were fired at the car and it is be- lieved that one or more of the four was wounded. The citizens who were so hastily summoned were all on foot and could do nothing ,more at that time, the a followup party later found a car abandoned a few miles north of White Dog-gone chilly this morning, wasn't it!

In neither place did they get any boot) The robbers stole a car at Fair- mount at three o'clock the next mend- ing and drove to Fargo where the car was found abandoned. ---Gazette Reporter, Wheaten.
