A few weeks ago we received a
etter from H- E. Qualheim, formerly
Superintendent of the schools here,
which he extended greetings to
he Grand Marais people. Mr. Qual
leim also renewed his subscription
the News-Herald, which is evi
le nee that he enjoys reading about
,nd takes an interest in the people
vith whom he sojourned for four
ears. He is in an agricultural dis
rict, and being in charge as examin
er of a string of bi.nks ail in differ
ent towns, is in a position to feel
.he public pulse and undertand the
inancial condition of the agricultural
eople as no person in another call

times are adjusting themselves for

D"f people being in such tight posi
