Tragedy at Dassel. Word was * brought up town Mon-
day shortly after dinner tha t John Sallberg, Sr., had been found in the loft of the barn on their place with his throat cut. A razor still clutch-ed in his r ight hand told the story he had committed suicide.
Mr. Sallberg had been in poor heal th for several years pas t and it had undoubtedly unbalanced his mind. He had also been worrying about his son John being called to the army. Saturday evening he was out in the great hail s torm and became so be-wildered tha t he could not tell where he found shelter. His mind was fail-ing him.
Mr. Sallberg was a nat ive of Sweden and was pas t 71 years cf age. He had been a resident of Das-sel some forty years, coming here with his brother, August, a merchant of this village in former days.Dassel Anchor.

ENLISTMENTS ARE BETTER EACH MONTH
Record Has Been Broken Each Month for Five Months.
For the fifth successive month the Minnesota Recruiting Dis-trict has bettered its record for the previous month. Gradually climbing from an obscure position near the bottom of the list of 64 recruiting districts in the country; in April the Minnesota District bettered the re-cord of the San Francisco district, which has been leading the country for the past two years. In April 1103 recruits were secured in the state, which is believed to be the highest record in the country. When the final count was made for May, however, it was found that 1240 recruits had enter-erd the service. A rush of men during the last few days of the month net-ted 175 men, May 31, which was the banner day for the month. The rush was largely of men 21 years of age who would be compelled to register June 5th.
A recruiting and loyalty tour of the state conducted by Major John D. Yost Recruiting Officer for the Minnesota District, accompanied by Corporal Harry A. Welcome, one of the fifty men recently returned to this country by General Pershing and A. A. Farrington of Duluth ^a speaker for the Bureau of Public Information at Washington, D. C. was productive of excellent results and helped materially to swell the total enlistment for the month of May. The tour included all the range towns, Virginia, Hibbing, Eveleth and Chis-holm. Enroute to Bemidji meetings were held from the rear end of the recruiting car "Soudan" at Deer River and Grand Rapids. Bemidji, Fari-bault and Mankato \srere visited. Final meetings were held at Winona and Wabasha.
In commenting on his tour Major Yost said, "In all my experience I have never seen such warm enthusi-asm, the entire trip was a triumphal tour, with overflow meetings at all places. Our reception throughout the state, and the number of men get1
ting into the service from the state is back of the beys at the front, and can be counted on for whole hearted support at all times."
JOHN LIND SPEAKS MIND ON POLITICS
Food Facts of Week. (By State Food Administrator.)
Our immediate pressing duty is to see that the peoples and armies of Great Britain, France and Italy are fed, so that they will not collapse as Russia and Finland have done because of the disorganization due to Ger-man propaganda, injustice and above all, lack of food. It is imperative that we save and send wheat and other foods absolutely required in Europe during the months before the next harvest. We cannot do it un-less we stop using them here. We must realize that food is the weapon with which America is going to be able to maintain a position in this war long enough to win it. The food administration is not asking that food be saved to save money, but to save lives that will win the war.

The food administration is urg-ing that the sugar regulations provid ing sugar for canning be taken ad-vantage of now and the maximum of all kinds of food preserved in every household for future use. The pre-servation of home grown perishables is one of the greatest possible aids to food conservation and the possi-bility of furnishing to the armies their required amount of food. Food grown and preserved at home guards against a possible food shortage; food grown and preserved at home requires no railroad transportation to bring it to the family table and it re-leases for export shipping that rail-road transportation that would be ne-cessary to bring food in that it re-places.
These are the reasons why the food administration has anounced that so long as sugar is available it may be purchased by householders in quanti-ties for canning and preserving only upon certificate signed at the store upon purchase. Sugar distributors report big supplies on hand now and the home canner should take full advant-age of the opportuity, the food admin-istration states.
Endorses Judge Comstock for Democratic Nomination for
Governor at Primary. Speaking at the opening- of the cam-
paign for the nomination of Judge W. L. Comstock as Democratic candidate for Governor, former Governor John Lind made a significant speech. We re-produce the report of the same appear-ing in the St. Paul Daily News:
Mr. Lind said in part: '1 am not hero to oppose Mr. Wheaton:
we all like him; he is a good fellow; he has rendered good service; but I have known Judge Comstock a long, long time," said Mr. Lind.
"I don't fight the other man, but I prefer this man. I have known him many years, and he has grown every day of his life since I have known him.
TIMES DEMAND BIO KEN. "I want you to forget such as-
persions as have been cast around, that people are putting him up to op-pose somebody, to fight old quarrels, to thresh old straw. These times are too serious for bickerings, but they do demand men, and big men.
"A great deal has been said in the papers in this state and peddled by word of mouth, to the effect that the president wants the Democrats of this state to support a certain candidate for senator, and to support another certain candidate for governor. I t has been .said that he wrote letters to that effect. I tell you, and I know, that those reports and statements are false.
NOT ANT OUESSWOBX. "And this is not guesswork with me.
This is not rumor. I know it to be false. Why, you would think, almost, to hear some people talk, and and to read some of the publications, that there is no patriotism outside of certain party ampliations. That is absurd. There is another absurdity that, to my mind, is worse. They say tha t every man should vote for a certain official, and a certain other official, because they are patriotic, because they are loyal. That is a great argument for our Republican friends. Vote for this can-didate, or vote for that Republican candidate, because he is loyalbe-cause he is patriotic. Have loyalty and patriotism become such a special virtue with Republican officeholders that they have to be paid for in votes? And Democratic votes, a t that.
THROWING- OFP CAMOUFLAGE. Now, let us see clearly. Throw
aside all camouflage. Let us talk busi-ness. Why, 99 per cent of the people of this state are loyal. Not only loyal, but patriotic. And then, to say that because a certain individual does his duty as a citizen, does his duty as an official, and supports the president and the government and the nation in this hour of trialthat he is entitled to special credit, on account of his pa-triotism, for doing that which he could not avoid doing, if he is a citizen and an honest man! I t is absurd. Why, nearly all our people are loyal. The exceptions are fewer and rarer than many thinkwe are all standing to-gether, 'Democrats and Republicans. ies, and the others are getting in line pretty rapidly, even the Socialist*.
