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 his grist and was raking the leavings into the mill, when the fingers were caught by the cob-crushers and taken off. One of the fingers was left in the mill, the other hung by a part of the skin and the doctor who dressed the injury sewed it back on with the hope of saving it.

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 for duty.
 
There will be special and final preparatory drills at the armories at Worthington and Rushmore on Saturday, June 15, 1907, at 8:30 p.m., which every man must attend fully uniformed and equipped for inspection.
 
Let every man retain and refer to the first part of this order in procuring his equipment.
A. Schaefer, Captain.
 
ALUMNI BANQUET
Annual Gathering One of Special Interest and Enjoyment
 
The annual banquet of the Worthington High School Alumni Association was held at Hotel Worthington Saturday night, June 8, attended by 48 members of the association.

Before the banquet a business meeting was held, at which the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, J. Burr Ludlow; Vice President, G. Foster Moore; Toastmistress, Helen Ludlow; Treasurer, Lloyd Patterson; Secretary, Flora Buchan.
 
It was 9:30 o'clock when the doors of the spacious dining room were thrown open and the guests assembled at the banqueting board. The table fairly groaned under the weight of the good things that had been prepared by Landlord Stanley Moore, and the dining room and table were beautifully decorated with flowers.
 
After the wants of the inner man had been supplied the evening was devoted to the responses to toasts. Robert R. Smith officiated as toastmaster. The following toasts were responded to:
 
To the Babies -- Mae Gwen Tupper, 1904.
Get Out of the Road -- Virgil Fellows, 1907.
The Servant Question -- J. Burr Ludlow, 1897.
Spuds -- Flora Buchan, 1905.
Who's Who -- Arthur P. Rose, 1894.

It was twelve o'clock when the guests left the tables, and after giving the association yell, the company departed, voting the occasion one of the most enjoyable banquets ever held.
