Sheriff Lund After Wife Deserter

Hiram Dillingham Under Arrest at Roseau, Minn., and Will be Brought Here for Trial.

Sheriff Rasmus S. Lund left the city at midnight Thursday night for Roseau, Minn., in response to a telegram from Sheriff Edward T. Olson that he had in custody Hiram Dillingham wanted in Webster county on a charge of wife desertion. It is expected Sheriff Lund and his prisoner will return to the city about Tuesday or Wednesday, Roseau being an out of the way town on a branch line running out from St. Paul, and the railroad connections being very limited.

Dillingham was formerly a drainage contractor in Webster county, and some months ago it is alleged he brought his wife to the city and left her, telling her she need not return to the boarding camp he was conducting in connection with his drainage work. Recently Mrs. Dillingham filed suit in the district court for divorce, alleging infidelity as a cause, and naming a local woman as corespondent.

Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Houge were pleasantly surprised by a number of friends last Thursday afternoon in honor of the fifteenth anniversary of their wedding day.

Miss Susan Evanson came home from Highland Park for a few days vacation.

Word reaches us of the marriage of Carl Houge at Edgeley, N. Dakota, to a young lady of that place. The community extends congratulations.

Ellen Chantland entertained the Y.L. Aid Society last Saturday.

Mr. and Mrs. N.O. Nelson of Humboldt came down to attend the surprise on Mr. and Mrs. C.J. Houge.

Mrs. Myrtle and children left for their new home in Minn., last Saturday night. We wish them success in their new home.

Mrs. Oscar Olson is enjoying a visit from her friend Georgina Lund of Thor.

There will be a dance at Badger hall on May 17.

Henry Erickson now sports a brand new buggy.

Thor and Badger crossed bats last Sunday. It resulted that they had to have it abandoned on account of the rain.

Mrs. Myhre and children left for their future home in Nyfolden, Minnesota last week.

Mary Kelley resumed her duties again after a few days the forepart of last week, to attend the wedding of her sister Anna Kelley to Mike Flattery. Anna Kelley has been one of our most efficient teachers in this district, so we wish her success in her matrimonial venture.

(Editor’s note: Mrs. Myrtle and Mrs. Myhre are no doubt the same person, but I’m not sure which spelling is correct. It’s not the first time I have seen a news item repeated in this fashion.)
