Dell Bowley
Source: Morning Star (Rockford, IL) Saturday, November 24, 1906

Word was received here today of the loss by fire by Mr. and Mrs. Dell Bowley of their home at Emily, Minn. The fire caught apparently from a defective flue, and as there was no one in the house the building burned with all its contents, including the grain on the place and their furniture. Mr. and Mrs. Bowley are Belvidere young people who were married last spring and went to Minnesota to live on a farm presented by the groom's father, a Belvidere jeweler. All of their wedding presents were burned. There was no insurance. Snow lies a foot deep at Emily and they will be unable to rebuild until spring. They probably will be compelled to sell their stock and come back to Belvidere for the winter.

Shot Prairie Chickens from their Motor Car
Brainerd, Minn., Oct. 26 - (Special to The Herald) - G. A. Oberg and C. W. Oberg, while motoring from their home in Deerwood to Brainerd, saw a covey of prairie chickens.

(News Tribune Special.)
EMILY, Minn., May 8. - Residents of Emily and vicinity are excited over the discovery of copper by Charles Taylor about one mile north of this village. Already the residents are searching outcropping of rock and any formation that in their minds might bear the precious ore.

The circumstances surrounding the find were unusual. Taylor was walking along when he noticed a boulder about half covered up. He kicked it with his foot and to his surprise a gleaming line appeared on the face of the substance. He dug out the piece of metal.

First rumor was to the effect that gold had been found, and excitement was aroused. Examination showed that the "nugget" weighed slightly more than 45 pounds and was almost pure copper.

J. J. Robinson of Duluth arrived the following day to investigate the story. He stated he did not believe that copper would be found in any large quantities and that in his opinion the copper had been lost there by some Indian.
