O N THE WAY.
There are a good many hun
dred settlers on their way to
northern Minnesota this spring.
Some of them do not know it yet.
They would be surprised were
they told that they were on their
way north. But they are. Thous
ands of them.
Never was interest in this
country so great as it is at the
present time. Everybody knows
that these arfe times when the
people of older settled states are
looking west and northwest for
cheaper lands. Pew have thus
far looked to Beltrami county,
but a good many are beginning to
look at last, thanks to the energy
and enterprise of a few who have
been industriously advertising
this sectiun and showing to the
rest of the world some of itspine.
What this country needs is to
be known. We need to be adver
tised. When the people to the
south ot us begin to know of the
wonderful farm lands to be found
in Beltrami county there v\ili be
an influx of settlers which will
send forward the development of
this great region by leaps and
HE initial issue of the Crooks

scored some remarkable suc
cesses in the past and it is today
without a peer among the ranks
of the country dailies of the
northwest. In local news, in
telegraph service, in tyjjographi
cal make up and in a complete
represeatation of the business
life of the community through
its advertising columns the
Times is a pattern for all others.
HE legislature will either pay
that drainage debt that it owes
northern Minnesota or get out
of the way for A. M. Greeley.
Mr. Greeley lets no week go by
that he does not point a
morals out to the state in this
matter. Why not send Greeley

Finish at Northome.
Eugene S. Bruce, chief lum
berman of the bureau of foresty,
has returned from a trip to the
logging camps of Blakely & Par
ley, north of Northome, where he
has had a crew of men from the
bureau working on stem analysis.
John Bai"d, George Parley and
Mark Burns constitue the mem
bers of the crew, and they left on
Sunday for the camps of the
Standard Lumber Co., near Ball
Club, where they will complete
the stem analysis on Norway
The crews of the bureau
whoare working under Mr. Bruce,,
and constitute seven men, have
been changed from one point to

The Camphor Industry.
The annual consumption of
camphor throughout the world is
about 10,400,000 pounds. Part is
used medicinally. In Japan, a
certain amount is utilized in the
lacquer industry in China, it is
burned to give light or in funeral
ceremonies. But its chief use is
in the celluloid industry, because
it is the base of this product and
of its principal derivatives, and
since this industry has been con
siderably developed in the last
few years. The island of For
mosa furnishes about half of this
product. The consumption of
golden grain belt beer is increas
ing more and more as the public
realizes that this delightful bever
age is especially suited to home
use, at the home board, because
of its healthful tonic qualities.

An Incorrect Report.
Dr, Kodwell, physician in
of the Cass Lake*Indians,
says that the report that he had
started that the Indians in and
about Cass Lake were dying off
rapidly from pneumonia, was in
correct. There have been only
two deaths of peunmonia, and one
of the these was a white employe
at the Bena I Mian school. The
doctor says, however, that the
numerous cases of influenza
which are prevalent among the
Indians will result in hastening
many deaths from consumption.
Conductor Warren of the C. &
N. W. R. R. says: I had been
suffering with a severe cold for
several days, and was so hoarse
I could not speak above a whis
per, Nov. 16, 1 met one of Dr.
Warner's agents on my train, he
handed me a bottle of the White
Wine of Tar Syrup, and on6 hour
after taking the first dose my
hoarseness commenced leaving
me. In twenty four hours my
voice was quite clear and natural
the cold nearly cured. It is the
bast remedy I ever saw.

TRU E BLU E
Presbyterians Stand by Their
Pastor and He Stands
Through an unfortunate over
sight men I ion was omitted in the
Pioneer Inst evening of the re
ception tendered Monday evening
to Rev. and Mrs. J. P. McLeod
by the people of the Presbyterian
church of this city.
'Hie day was the anniversary
of the birth of Mrs. McLeod and
the members of the congregation,
under tho leadership of the
ladies, improved the opportunity
to assure their pastor and his
wife of their appreciation of his
work here and of their personal
good will and affection.
The affair was a surprise and
as such was most successful. A
short program, consisting of sev
eral well rendered numbers, pro
ceeded a short speech by Mr.
Trask, who on behalf of the con
gregation presented Mr. and
Mrs. McLeod with a purse of
37.50. The reception was held
in tho church, which was filled,
the occasion was one in
which both pastor and people re
newed their resolutions to work
for the upbuilding of the church
Mr. McLeod has received two
flattering offers recently from
churches near San Francisco,but
believing that his work in Be
midji is not yet finished has de
cided to remain here. In this
decision Bemidji in general will
rejoice with the members of his

The Famous Gotzian and
Signs of Polluted Blood.
There is nothing so repulsive looking and disgusting as an old sore.
You worry over it till the brain grows weary and work with it until the
patience is exhausted, and the very sight of the old festering, sickly looking
place makes you irritable, despondent and desperate.
A chronic sore is the very best evidence that your blood is in an unhealthy
and impoverished condition, that your constitution is breaking down under
the effects of some serious disorder. The taking of strong medicines, like
mercury or potash, will sometimes so pollute and vitiate the blood and im-
pair the general system that the merest scratch or bruise results in obstinate
Hon-healing sores of the most offensive character.
Often an inherited taint breaks out in frightful eating sores upon the limbs
or face in old age or middle life. Whenever a sore refuses to heal the blood
is always at fault, and, while antiseptic washes, salves, soaps and powders
can do much to keep down the inflammation and cleanse the sore, it will
never heal permanently till the blood itself has been purified and the deadly
germs and poisons destroyed, and with S. S. S. this can be accomplishedthe
polluted blood is purified and invigorated, and when
rich,pureblood is again circulating freely throughout
the body the flesh around the old sore begins to take
on a natural color, the discharge of matter ceases
and the place heals over.
S. S. S. is both a blood purifier and tonic that puts your blood in order
and at the same time tones up the system and builds up the general health.
If you have a chronic sore write us. No charge for medical advice.
