Congress, instead of bothering itself
about literacy tests for immigrants,
ought to busy itself about establish

"Wolves destroy more deer than

The natural inference is that at least

It is claimed that the "bridge com

How E\-Go\ernor Eberhart, a man

So our old friend W. W. Rich has
been separated from the pay roll of
the United States Marshall's office,

Henry Would Make Good.
If State Treasurer Gooding is not to
be a candidate for election this fall,
we nominate Henry Rines of Mora for
the place. No man in the state is bet
ter qualified than he. He would add
strength to the ticket. Besides, the
state owes him something for the good
work he did during his long term as

The Law's Best Feature.
It is reported that an organized at
tack on the state highway commis
sion is scheduled for the next legisla
ture. About the best features of the
good roads law is the provision re
quiring the supervision of the high
way commission, and the people in
terested in good roads will do well to
get busy in support of the commis
sion.Elk River Star-News.
Well Equipped for the Position.
Henry Rines, of Mora, has filed for
the republican nomination for state
treasurer. Mr. Rines was a candidate
for state auditor two years ago and
came within a few votes of receiving
the nomination. His newspaper
friends in various parts of the state
are boosting his candidacy, and he
is looking to them for the support
promised in case he decided to file.
He is a newspaper man, was speaker
of the house in 1913, and well equipped
for the position.Brainerd Dispatch.
Senator Clapp will not deliver the
Memorial day address at Duluth this
year, as the members of the G. A. R.
at that city have withdrawn the invi
tation sent him to participate as the
chief speaker, on account of his oppo
sition to the administration. The
communication stated that "we will
not stultify ourselves by listening to
a man who has refused to support the
President of the United States in a
crisis." Also that "it would be advisa
ble for him to be too busy to be able
to accept."Stillwater Gazette.
A Hazardous Business.
Managing a saloon in this day and
age is a mighty risky business from a
financial standpoint. Last week a
pauper, who was thrown out of a
saloon at Bemidji some time ago, se
cured a verdict for $1,000 against the
saloon keeper for frozen hands, which
had to be amputated. Courts have
repeatedly held that saloon keepers
are liable for personal injuries re
ceived by a person when intoxicated,
when the source from which the liquor
came can be established.Park Rap
An Unexpected Commission.
The story is told of a temperance
business man in a neighboring town
who received a letter and blank from
a booze concern, soliciting his pat
ronage. The letter stated that if he
wasn't a prospective customer, he
would be given a liberal commission if
he would fill out the enclosed blank
with the names of liquor users, pro
viding they purchased within a certain
time. In a spirit of levity, the blank
was filled out with the names of cer
tain of the prominent and self-avowed
"dry" men of the town. The matter
was forgotten until a few weeks later
when the "business man received a
check for $10.44 as his commission
for the booze sold to the "dry" pros-
pects he had sent in. And now he
wonders who were which.Cokato

Cheap separators are cheaply made from cheap materials,

four. It keeps our old Ford busy these days delivering Great

out the latest streamline design.
The equipment compares with that of cars very
much higher in price. At the same time it is a
low priced car that costs very little to run. It
is equipped with the Autolite two-unit starting
and lighting system. Its rear springs are the
famous cantilever type, probably the easiest
riding springs ever designed. It has four-inch
tires all around non-skids on rear. Demount
able rims are used and one extra rim is included.
There is a magnetic speedometer and a full set
of tools. It is not only a thoroughly high grade
car, but carries with it a completeness of equip
ment unheard of in cars of this price.
