The Mississippi Above High Water Mark Sun­ day. MILL HAD TO SHUT DOWN Storms do Much Damage in the Town of Belle Prai­ rie. The Mississippi river reached on Sunday morning the highest point it has ever been here, and for several hours chere was fear that consider­ able damage would be done. The tremendous storm of Thurs. day night soon showed its effect on the river, which by Saturday night had risen six feet, and by Sunday morning was more than two feet above high water mark. Saturday night it was feared that the water would gat around the east end of the dam and flood the flats, and accord­ ingly the people living there were noti­ fied by the police to be on the outlook. Happily the trouble did not occur.. Street Commissioner Lafond was up all night Saturday watching the banks on both sides near the bridge. Between 5 and 6 o'clock in the morn­ ing the river rose eight inches in al­ most an instant, owing to the mov­ ing of the log jam above the city. Those who saw the eight-inch h...

I A. VOL. 10. NO. 17. 10 THE G. J. Result of the Trial of Divine Healer Joseph La chance. SOLEMN SERVICES SUNDAY Bishop Trobec Will Confirm a Class at the German Cath­ olic Church. The following account of the trial of Jos. Lachance, at St. Paul Tues­ day, is taken from the St. Paul Dis­ patch: Joshep LaChance, divine healer, was on trial in poiice court today for practicing medicine without a licenne. The complaint was tiled by Dr. Jolin B. Rrimhall, secretary of the state board of medical examiners, the specific charge being that he treated John EversOn, of 506 Pat ritlge street. The healer is an ordinary looking man, but the stories told by the witnesses as to his conduct in his Wabasha street offices are some­ what remarkable. The most note­ worthy occurrence in the trial was that one of the state's principal witnesses testified to the success La Chance achieved in a particular case. Attorney Calhoun, of St. Cloud, and Attorney Rhodes, of Little Falls, appeared for La Chance. As...

Following are extracts from letters written by Ensign Chadwick, of the cruiser Raleigh, nephew of Eugene Laird of Little Falls, to his mother and sister. Ensign Chadwick was in charge of a five inch gun on the cruiser during che battle of Manila, and his account of the combat is therefore accurate as well as inter­ esting. My Dka.ii Moth We made six runs along their line be­ tween 5:30 and 7:30, and Irom appear­ ances they were pretty well knocked out. Our ships sustained only slight damage. The Raleigh was hft but once, a shell knocking the rail from a whale boat, going across the deck and striking a glancing blow on a six-paunder gun. Fortunately no one was hit. Not a single casualty occurred on board of us. In fact the only casualties of the U. fc. fleet were on the Baltimore, where a six inch shell went through her side and ex­ ploded some of her own ammunition. Six men were slightly injured and they ...
