Special to The Journal.
Windom, Minn., Aug. 22.-Frank A. Day was here yesterday to confer with the populists about the nomination for congress at their convention, to be held in Windom on Tuesday. A number of populists, prohibitionists and democrats were at the meeting. It is a part of the plan for Day not to be present at the convention, but the indications are that he will be either indorsed or nominated. The silver sentiment is dying out and with hard work the county can be saved for McKinley.

Mr. and Mrs. Aug. Jahnke and family.

John Regnell Comes to Life When on the Embalming Table.

Westbrook, Minn., Dec. 13.-As the undertaker was about to inject embalming fluid into the body of John Regnell to prepare the supposed corpse for burial. Regnell raised himself from the embalming table and said: "Hello Bill."

There were two surprised men in the undertaking room. One was Regnell, who did not know where he was, and the other was H. P. Steadman, the undertaker.

A physician soon had Regnell out of danger. His face, however will be permanently marked by the carbolic acid which he took yesterday in trying to end his life. Regnell says that now he is perfectly willing to live.
