The machine, which is a new one, will cut a swath I0 feet wide. It is operated by a gasoline engine and is attached to the front end of a flat bottom boat which is propelled by a paddle wheel. Combined with the cycle that cuts horizontally are two 5 foot cycles that cut perpendicular- ly. These serve to cut the weeds in small block s thereby permitting them to float away more easily and more rapidly and at the same time clear the machine. Mr. Krueger plans to cut the weeds about four feet below the surface vf the water. The machine however, may be lowered to a depth of several feet more. He intimated that he might cut the rushes at the lower end of the lake for the purpose of beautifying the same. It is also Mr. Krueger's intention to repair the buildings near the lake front, which were moved there two 1 years ago, for the purpose of using! them as boarding houses for lrls large crew- of men who assist in the ice harvest. Mr. Krueger works in con- junction with Fred Peterson and Son of this city.

Shipstead-Van Lear-Steidl Speak To Large Crowd Monday Night Staunch supporters of the Non- partisan League coming t Ortonville from all corners of the county help- ed to fill the Orpheum Theatre on Monday night when Dr. Hendrick Shipstead, candidate for the United States Senate, addressed a large au- dience on political issues, for the coming election, There were in the audience, also, many Republicans and Democrats. Dr. Shipstead was accompanied by H. T. Van Lear candidate for Clerk of the Supreme Court, who preceeded him with a short talk, and F. J teidl of Wheaten candidate for State Senator from this district, who wound-up the spee making of the evening. Steidl, it ws conceded, re- ceived the worst end of the deal for many persons left the auditorium when he took the platform on ac- count of the length of time taken by the candidates wko preceeded him. Dr. Shiustead scored his opponent, Senator Kellogg, for his vote on seating Senator Trueman Newberry. Speaking on this matter he said, "Newberry's election was bought at auion and the United States Senate went on record to sell the govern- ment itself in that transaction." Manipulations of the money of this country by the Federal Reserve Bank- ing system, Dr. Shipstead said, was the cause of the depression that has come over the country since the war. The loaning of money to European countries to the extent of 8 billions of dollars or more, he said, was one reason for the hardy, hips brought to the farmers and the smaller trades people. The Esch-Cmmins railroadl law and the McCumber tariff bill were flayed by the speaker. Of the form- er he said; "The railroads were guaranteed a percentage on a valu- ation of over 18 billion dollars. Sen- ator La Follette, of Wisconsin, had ,placed an estimate of 8 billion as be- ing a fair value. The Congressional investigating committee returned fig- urea of 19 and one-half billions, which was cut to 18 bfllioh and same odd hundred million." The McCumber tariff biU vill cost the common people from 3 to 5 bil- lion, he said "War contractors, ship-builders and railroads were all subsidized or paid bonuses by the govermnent to the ex- tent of billions of dollars," he said, "but there was no money available to pay the ;eturned soldiers a bonus." Dr. Shipstead declared that he had not much hopes of being elected when he first started his campaign, bu on going over the state he said that he finds farmers and busines- men who are bankrupt or near-bank- runt who will vo fvr him. The speakers were introduced by J. A. Anderson, president of the or- tonvflle Star. Dr. Shipstead, at in- tervals during his speech, drauk bla coffee and swallowed throat lozengers because of a hears and weakened voice, whidh he id was caused by his strenuous speech-mak- ing. He predicted his election long with other candidates on the Non- partisan ticket. A collection was taken up at the door to aid in put- ting over the ticket and defrayi expenses.
