He went from here to Chicago where he graduated from a school of pharmacy. Returning to Minnesota he went to work in a drug store at St. Peter, where he remained three years. Later he was engaged in the drug business at Fargo, and at the time of his death he was in charge of a store at Grafton N.D. He was married at St. Peter and two children are the result of the union.
 
Mr. Ager was a 32d degree Mason, he was also a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the Modern Woodmen, in which latter he carried an insurance of $3000. The remains were accompanied to Worthington by his brother Herbert C. Ager.
 
POLICE COURT NEWS
Busy Time in Judge Dow's Court on Several Days of This Week.
 
On Monday Andrew Peters, a blacksmith of Lismore, was arrested and arraigned before Judge Dow on charge of assault and battery. He plead guilty and paid a fine of $5 and costs of $9.15.
 
Frank Koessler, the complainant in the case against Peters, was arrested on Tuesday on a charge of larceny. When first arraigned he plead not guilty, but a few hours later he changed his plea to guilty and was given 30 days in the county jail. It appears that Koessler stole some from the blacksmith Peters, who, when he found it out, administered corporal punishment to the culprit, the latter had Peters arrested. Koessler's arrest on charge of stealing followed, and he is now boarding with the county for thirty days.
 
On Tuesday morning Albert Zollmer and N.J. Bank of Adrian, were given a preliminary examination before Judge Dow and held to the grand jury in the sum of $500 each. They are charged with gambling. C.M. Crandal appeared for the state and G.W. Wilson for the defendants.
 
Ex-Policeman Henry Twitchell was arrested last Thursday evening by Sheriff Fauskee on a charge of drunk and disorderly. He demanded immediate hearing, plead guilty, and paid a fine of $10 and costs. After leaving the court room he assaulted the sheriff. He was again arrested and was arriagned before Judge Dow on Friday morning and his hearing set for June 4th. This escapade of the ex-policeman has caused much comment.

The above is a group portrait of the members of the famous Rock Rapids Iowa, band of twenty-two pieces which is one of the leading organizations of the kind in our sister state. This band with the Windom band of eighteen pieces and the Sibley, Iowa band of fifteen pieces will form a leading feature in this city. There will be no lack of "concord of sweet sounds" to stir the blood and set your feet a dancing.
 
The secretary of the Rock Rapids band writes as follows regarding that organization.
 
The Rock Rapids City Band has been under the instruction of the veteran Band Master, Prof. C. Tonolli, for the past four years. This band has been praised very highly by all who have heard it and the citizens of Rock Rapids feel very proud that they have such a band. The individual members own their instruments and uniforms and they have a full set of silver instruments, manufactured by C.G. Conn Co., of Elkhart, Indiana, and we claim that there is no other band in the west having a set of instruments like ours. Last August, the Professional Musicians of the United States presented our Professor C. Tonolli with an elegant, double bell Euphonium, which instrument took the First Prize at the World's Fair at St. Louis. It is a silver plated instrument, with gold plated bells, very handsomely engraved and set with jewels. The mouth-piece alone is worth $50.
