Benton County’s New Cheese Factory

! SAUK RAPIDS, Minn., April 13.—(Special.)—A good-sized cheese factory is being built in Graham township. The building is 30x40, with a granite basement, and will be completed by May 1. The cost of the structure is between $1,200 and $1,500, and the capital is furnished by Eastern parties. The milk of 200 cows has been pledged.

Another smallpox scare is being experienced in the county. This time the disease is located in Langola. A young man, Morton by name, just returned from the lumber camps on a visit to his sister, Mrs. Doble. After a few days he was found to have a fever and later broke out. The house was at once quarantined. Since then four members of the Doble family have been taken with the smallpox. Another family near by has three children ill with the disease.

Charles E. Skeate, A. F. and Joseph Jones have engaged seven cars with which to ship their household effects, a threshing outfit and other machinery to Minot, N. D., where they have filed on claims. They go via the Great Northern.
