WHEN REFORMERS DISAGREE.
The Hermann commission has
just made a report on the seggre
gation of vice which is attracting
widespread attention and which
is not without local application in
most northern Minnesota cities.
The editor of the New World, a
Roman Catholic publication, de
clares-for segregation in the fol
lowing forceful argument:
"It is better to have one large
wound where you can get at it
and cure it," he said, "than to
have a altitude scattered over
the entire social system. I main
tain that the social evil is not
necessary, but it is one thing to
condemn it and another thing to
get rid of it. The peril is one of
the oldest on earth. For centur
ies the church has tried to eradi
cate it, but it is still here. Stamp
on it and it merely scatters, local
ize it and it can be controlled."
The principal argument ad
vanced against the segregation
of vice is that vice is lawless
and when law attempts to pro
tect that which is lawless, govern
ment is always impaired. It is
also urged that any protection of
vice injuries the moral life of a
The one theory seems to lean to
the practical the other to the
theoretical view of the matter.

S. J. Lachapelle Says the Itasca
County Town Will Boom
the Coming Year.
S. J. Lachapelle, one of the
pioneers of the Big Pork country,
is in the city today from the Big
Fork country looking alter some
business matters. The season of
the year approaches when people
up the Big Palls way must make
their final trips to Bemidji over
the winter road or go out over the
Canadian Northern from Koochi
ching and Mr. Laohapollo says
Bemidji may expect many Big
Pork visitors during the next few
Ripple is booming says Mr.
Lachapelle and the coming sum
mer will witness its growth to a
town of considerable proportions.
The incorporation of the village
will be accomplished in a short
time and it will make rapid
strides from this time on. Possi
bilities for the various village
offices are already being dis
cussed. Mr. Lachapelle says
they have a faculty up the Big
Pork way of keeping politics out
of their affairs and says the first
officers of the new village will be
chosen with strict regard to
merit. Editor Greeley, of the
Big Pork Compass, appears at
present to be the unanimous
choice for mayor of the village
and will no doubt be elected with
Mr. Greeley has a happy
faculty of inspiring lasting friend

Pork country he has become very
popular. His paper, the Com

sawmill is being taken in this
week and will be ready for busi

Pork valley and its coming is
hailed with delight by tho settlers
New settlers are coming in
very rapidly and there will be
great activity in the building line
this summer. The people up
that way are confident that the
M. & I. will be built through
some time during tho coming
year and will be greatly disap
pointed if work is not begun in
the next few months. The ex
tension means a very great deal
to tho country and is believed
since the recent visit of the
officials to be an. assured fact.
Wolves Killing Deer.
Timber cruisers from the
northern part of the state report
that since the crust has formed
on the snow wolves are slaughter
ing deer as never before. During
the winter, until recently, owing
to the continuous cold weather,
the snow has remained dry and
light and the deer could run in it
better than the wolves. But now
that the snow has a crust on it
the wolves have the advantage.
They run lightly while the hoofs
of the deer strike through to the
ground. When a wolf goes after
a deer now the result of the chase
is certain. The deer stands no
show of escape. It is said that
the wolves, which are very gaunt
and savage, having had a famine
of their own this winter, seem to
kill deer for the sake of killing,
They kill more than they need to
satisfy their hunger at one time
if the opportunity exists.

Charles Derach Meets With Seri
ous Accident at Hovey
Charies Derach, a woodsman,
employed at the hoist at Hovey
Juration was the victim of a seri
ous accident last night. Derach
was working around one of the
cars which was being loaded
when one of the heavy timbers
became displaced and rolled to
the ground. Derach was borne
from his feet by the force of the
blow anp both his limbs wrere
badly crushed. He was brought
to St. Anthony's hospital in Be
midji this morning.
Scrofula manifests itself in many ways. Swelling of the glands of the
neck and throat, Catarrh, weak eyes, white swelling, offensive sores and ab-
scesses, skin eruptions, loss of strength a nd weakness in muscles and joint s.
It is a miserable disease and traceable in almost every instance to some
family blood taint
Scrofula appeared on the head of my
little grandchild when only 18 months
old, and apread rapidly over her body.
The disease next attacked the eyes and
we feared she would lose her stent. Em
inent physicians were consulted, but
could do nothing to relieve the little in
nocent. It waB then that we decided to
try S. 8. 8. That medicine at once made
& speedy and complete curs. *he*s now
a young- lady, and has never had a stern,
of the disease to return. -_
MBS. EUTH BEBKLT,
150 South 5th Street. Salina, Kan.
Scrofula is bred in the
bone, is transmitted
from parent to child,
the seeds are planted in
infancy and unless the
blood is purged a nd pu
rified and every atom of
the taint removed Scrof
ula is sure to develop at
some period in your life.
N remedy equals S. S. S. as a cure for Scrofula. It cleanses a nd builds
up the blood, makes it rich and pure, and under the tonic effects of this
great Blood Remedy, the general health improves, the digestive orga ns are
strengthened, and there is a gradual but sure return
to health. The deposit of tubercular matter in the
joints and glands is carried off as soon as the blood
is restored to a normal condition, and the sores, erup
tions, and other symptoms of Scrofula disappear.
S. S. S. is guarante ed purely vegetable and harmless an ideal blood
purifier a nd tonic that removes all blood taint and builds up weak constitu-
tions. Our physicians will advise without charge, all who wri te tis abo ut
their case. Book mailed free.
