Lost Fingers in Feed Grinder
Fred Kasten, who lives four miles west of Worthington on the Luverne
road, on Monday had two middle fingers of his right hand taken off
in a feed grinder at W.E. Larim__e's place. He had about finished

Company Order No. 20
Armory Company F, 3rd Inf., M.N.G.
Worthington, June 10th, 1907.
Company F will entrain for the annual tour of camp and field duty on
train No. 10, C., St. P.M. & O. Ry leaving depot at Worthington at
1:15 a.m., Monday, June 17, 1907, returning June 26, 1907.
Each man will be equipped with the following state property: Khaki
uniform, leggins, campaign hat, hat cord, two chambray shirts,
rifle, bayonet, cartridge belt, canteen, haversack, shelter tent
half, blanket roll straps, blanket and rubber poncho.
Each man should provide himself with three white collars, extra
handkerchiefs, comb, needle and thread, towels, soap, extra
stockings and underwear, toothbrush. The color and an extra pair of
shoes is optional. All other baggage is prohibited.
The blue uniform complete shall be turned in to the quartermaster at
the earliest opportunity to be packed for shipment.
It is the earnest desire of the officers, and should be of every
man, that Company F maintain and if possible excell the record
established in 1906. This can only be done by a full attendance of
men who are resolved that for ten days they will spare no effort to
perform and perfect themselves in the duties of a soldier.
It is not the intention of the officers nor is it the spirit of the
National Guard organization that any man shall make any unwarranted
financial sacrifices, nor that his duties as a soldier shall
unreasonably interfere with his business, but on the other hand,
only actual and reasonable cause will excuse the performance of this
or any other prescribed duty. It is imperative that a full
complement of non-commissioned officers attend.
Accordingly notice is given that failure to report for duty, unless
excused on account of sickness of himself or family, will be
sufficient ground to reduce any non-commissioned officer to the
ranks, and that all enlisted men unless excused by the commanding
officer upon written application made before the time of departure
may be discharged from the service if recruits are available ready
There will be special and final preparatory drills at the armories
at Worthington and Rushmore on Saturday, June 15, 1907, at 8:30
