In this cartoon's upper frame, the forecast for Sunday is fair weather, so a father, mother, and two children plan an outing in the park to feed the ducks. In the lower frame, it is pouring rain, much to the ducks' delight, and the family is getting soaked to the skin. This cartoon was published on Monday, July 12, 1909, which, according to the "Spring calendar" shown in the cartoon, followed one of many bad weather Sundays in the spring and summer of that year.
The March Lion, having just eaten the Spring Lamb, licks his chops. The cartoon reads, "Maltese cross indicates location of the lamb." Published March 6, 1915, this cartoon pokes fun at the harsh weather that often characterizes Minnesota's late winter.

Detailed report on the organization of relief activities, fund-raising, emergency assistance, policies for distribution of relief funds and supplies, and summaries of relief work undertaken and distributions made following a cyclone that devastated the vicinity of Saint Cloud and Sauk Rapids on April 14, 1886.
Note on back of photograph reads: About 1883 or 1884 taken from the G.N. depot, located between 5th and 6th Streets looking in a westerly direction. The following Morris Tribune article may refer to this photo as being one in a series of three. Mr. Elliott, the photographer, went out on the L.F. and D. road one day last week and made three photographs, instantaneous, of the snow plow and engine. In the first the engine and plow are at a stand-still; in the second the rate of speed is about eight miles per hour, and in the third is shown the effect on the plow in striking a drift at the rate of sixty miles an hour. Int the third picture nothing but a cloud of flying snow can be seen. Taken together, the three pictures make an interesting series. They are on sale at the gallery.
