MANIAC WANTED TO MARRY.
Madison, Minn., Jan. 11.-Martin Holtan, a farm laborer, who for some time has not been considered to be in his right mind, came up to this place from Dawson Saturday evening and took out a license to wed one of the pretty and respectable girls of that town, who never had consented to any such action.

P. G. Jacobson will leave tomorrow for Madison, Minn., where he has recently organized the Farmers State Bank with a capital of $25,000. He is well and of course favorably known in that community and beyond question, will succeed in building up a lucrative business. Mrs. Jacobson will not go until the last of the week. It is unfortunate that Aberdeen is called upon to lose these excellent people and it will be with great regret that citizens see them depart. They will always be remembered kindly by hundreds of friends here.

From the Sentinel Files
WHEAT FROM THE PLAINS OF ABRAHAM
While in Palestine last year, H. A. Larson visited the tomb of Abraham and as a memento of the visit, plucked a few heads of wheat from a small field a few feet from the tomb, and shelling out the kernels, brought them home with him. Last spring he planted those few kernels of wheat and a few days since, as harvested his crop, something like fifteen or twenty heads. These heads grew on stocks from 18-20 inches in height and are well filled with large kernels. The crop this year will be about a teacup full of wheat, which Mr. Larson will plant next your and in all probability will get a sufficient yield to afford a test of the quality of the grain.
