In addition to those from the city, there was a large number of interested farmers present. It is claimed that with this device, a crew of three men and one team can pull and pile one stump per minute. About one quarter of an acre can be cleared at each setting of the machine. It is understood that the county commissioners are contemplating purchasing one for the use of the county in clearing roads.

Nuisance will be
For several years the people of Two Harbors have tolerated a practice which is nothing but a public nuisance and a menace to safety, and it was carried to a point Friday night that has broken down the good nature of the citizens and the tolerance of the mayor and police. A parade of cars dragging tin cans, the drivers tooting horns to the embarrassment of the bride and groom who were being “honored”, and the disgust of the public , covered the downtown section and after having passed the hospital once as though bedlam had broken loose, were stopped by police as the second trip past the hospital was being negotiated. The police were reprimanded for failure to arrest and jail the offenders and given strict orders that in the future no such parades will be tolerated.
