From the Glenwood Herald December 10, 1914

Some of the hunters of our city are planning to get together sometime before New Year, choose sides and go on a rabbit hunt.  The side shooting the most rabbits wins the contest.  The losers will treat the winners to a New Year’s dinner.

Geo. A. Fischer has been given the contract for constructing a residence for Mr. Jordahl on his property west of this city.  This has been a busy season for our contractors and carpenters, and Mr. Fischer has been kept as busy as anyone in his profession.

The Senior class will give a literary program at the high school Friday evening, December 11.  The principle feature of the program will be a debate between representatives of the junior and senior classes on the question ‘Resolved that religious instruction should be given in the public schools, constitutionality granted.’  Juniors will debate on the affirmative side, while the seniors will defend the negative.  An interesting discussion is assured.  A small admission fee of ten cents will be charged.

The Gleaner Farm Club met at the home of Mrs. C. F. Cooley last Friday evening.  There was a large attendance and an excellent program was rendered.  A rest room in Glenwood was one of the topics for discussion.  Sentiment in favor of one was general and a committee consisting of Mrs. A. D. Anderson, Mrs. Edwin James and Miss Mary Hibbard was chosen to investigate what might be done in the matter.  We are glad to report that definite action has been taken in the matter and that we shall have a place for this purpose in a short time.

A basketball social will be given at the Woodmen hall on Friday evening, Dec 11 for the benefit of the Grove Lake School.  Lunch will be served to those not desiring baskets.  The play ‘Hans von Smash’ will be presented and the Grove Lake band will play.  Everybody come and have a good time.

Glacial Ridge Chapter of Pheasants Forever  hosts hunt and education event for local youth

Operating under the principle of “tell them and they will forget, show them and they will remember, involve them and they will understand,” the Glacial Ridge Chapter of Pheasants Forever recently held their 11th annual comprehensive youth hunt and education event. 
The Sunset Lodge Preserve near Sedan was the site of this year’s program, and judging by all the smiling faces, the event was a big hit with the kids. Gun safety was the order of the day, with Pheasants Forever committee members making sure everything ran smoothly. 
The youth in attendance were treated to sessions on pheasant biology, bird cleaning, gaining permission, dog training and care, and before heading out for a mentored pheasant hunt, they shot clay pigeons and were given instruction on proper shooting technique.
Each participant also received a Ringnecks membership—a $15 value.  The Ringnecks membership, which includes a quarterly magazine, is a program with the goal of fostering and nurturing an enduring interest in shooting sports, wildlife conservation and upland game bird hunting in America’s young people.  The chapter thanked Tom Schmidgall and his crew for hosting the event, and Travis McCrory for teaching dog care and training.  A big thank you was also offered to Eric Jensen of Minnewaska Meats for a lunch of hot dogs and Glenwood Pizza Ranch for their donation.

From the Glenwood Herald  October 15, 1914

Beginning tomorrow night J. H. McCauley will give coupons with every ticket bought for his motion picture show.  These coupons will give holder a number on a six dollar leather pillow which will be given away on every Friday evening commencing next week.  The pillows are very beautiful and are now on display at the opera house.

L. M. Landing who is employed by the International Harvester Company has given considerable attention to improving the company’s manure spreaders.  His suggestion is for a low spread and low lift spreader which he explained in detail to the blockmen at a recent meeting at St. Cloud.  His suggestion was sent to the Chicago office.  In a recent letter from this office Mr. Landing is told that the company has every reason to believe that his suggestions in this matter are valuable and they are taking the matter up with the Experiment Department.

Ed Kaldahl and G. C. Torguson were out hunting the first of the week returning with a bunch of Red Heads.

Verne, the eight year old son of Andrew Torguson of Grove Lake met with quite a serious accident one day last week.  A large dinner bell on him from a height of ten feet, striking him on the head, causing a severe scalp wound.  Dr. Glyer of Brooten is attending him.

John Hammond’s barn on his farm in Leven township was destroyed by fire early Saturday morning between twelve and one o’clock.  The loss also includes a calf, about fifty tons of hay, all of this year’s oats between 600 and 700 bushels, feed mill, gasoline engine, grain cleaner, new buggy, a set of light harness and other articles.  Four work horses, the harnesses and two calves were saved from the flames.  The loss on the barn which was recently constructed is placed at about $2000.  The total loss is about $2500.  Adjusters for White Bear Lake Insurance Company allowed $1100 insurance representing the full amount of insurance on the barn and hay.  The oats will not be a total loss.  They were cleaned immediately and while they will be smoky they may be fit for feed.  The fire was not discovered until the hay loft was all ablaze.  The origin of the fire is unknown it is probable that some stranger had enjoyed the hospitality of the barn for the night and had unintentionally caused the fire.   Mr. Hammond intends to rebuild this fall.  The new barn will be built on the old foundation.

Duck hunting has been good for sometime.
