The interest now awakening in
Beltrami county is evidenced by
the following pointed editorial in
the Crookston Times:
It has always been a mystery
to many why the timbered sec
tion further east in northern
Minnesota fails to attract the at
tention of land buyers and set
tlers. There are. thousands of
quarter sections of land in that
part of the s?fce where the set-

in the poultry raising could make
a success from the first week.
and the process of clearing the
land for crops would give him big
returns in cash, as the cutting of
tie timber, cord wood, cedar poles
and saw timber would give em
ployment that would return
money very fast. Everything in
the way of crops that is put into
the soil where for thousands of
years the leaf mould has enriched
it, grows at a marvelous rate, and
the market is always of the bests
owing to proximity to the logging
camps. The returns for work
done in clearing the timbered
lands do not come to the settler
in the half bushel, as they do to
the prairie farmer, to be spent
within a month in settling the
bills for the past year's living,
but area steady income through
out the twelve months, and are
measured by the effort put forth
by him during that period. He
is harvesting his crop continu
ously during the six months that
the prairie farmer is sitting by
the stove burning wood at C per
cord which costs nothing to the
settler in the timbered country.
The real estate men at various
points out oast, particularly at
Bemidji, are awakening to the
fact that their country is not
well known, and its advantages
not widely appreciated, and they
are beginning to awaken to the
necessity of advertising.

INDIANS CHASE A
Rainy River Clergyman Re
fuses to Marry a Brave
and Trouble Begins.
GOULD MOT UNDERSTAND NEC-
CESSITY OF LICENSE.
Brave Objected, Bride Wept and
Wedding Party Vents Spleen
Baudette, March 18.The pio
neer missionary among the In
dians sometimes meets with ludi
crous adventures as well as dan
gerous ones. Sometimes they
arc both dangerous and ludi
crous. Kuv. .1. Johnson, a mis
sionary who works among the
Canadian Rainy river Indians,
met with a thrilling adventure
Thursday of this week. Mr.
.Johnson is an Indian himself, a
graduate of Carlisle as well as a
theological graduate- of Cam
bridge. He is a scholar and a
gentleman of polish but has de
voted his life to the service of his
less fortunate fellow red men.
On Thursday he was called
from this city to the mouth of
Rainy river to officiate at the
wedding of a dusky brave and
his bride. When the people were
ready for the ceremony, the
bride and groom stood up for the
ceremony. It then developed
that there was no license. The
clergyman explained to Mr. Sky
You-Ho that he could not proceed
with the ceremony without a
license and as one could not be
procured without a thirty mile
drive, the wedding would have
to be postponed. The brave ob
jected and the bride wept. All
had been indulging in tire water
and grew vehement, but the
clergyman was obdurate. He
would not tie the knot. Finally
Mr. Sky-You Ho grabbed a knife,
a friend an ax and others got
clubs and proceeded to argue
with-Mr. Preacher. He took to
the woods and ran six miles. As
he was encumbered with a coon
skin coat, he was becoming
winded" and his pursuers were
gaining on hi ui in spite of the fact
that he is one of the most mag
nificent specimans of physical
manhood in northern Minnesota.
Seeing that all would be over
so far as his earthly career went,
Mr. Johnson bolted into a
desterted shack and fastened the
door. His pursurers attempted
to batter down the door. He
threatened them by saying he
would report them to their agents
if they did not desist and also
said he would shoot but they con
tinued their assaults. He was
preparing for the worst when a
party of loggers from a nearby
camp arrived and escorted the
preacher to safety.
Yesterday the party who had
made things warm for the
preacher, appeared on the scene
and apologized. They said they
would give him a moose hide,
mink skins and several other
skins if he would lorgive them
but he was obdurate, and the
Indians will have to reckon with

Malaria is not confined exclusively to the swamps
and marshy regions of the country, but wherever there is
bad air this insidious foe to health is found. Poisonous
vapors and gnse.s from sewers, and the musty air of clamp
cellars are laden with the germs of this miserable disease,
which are breathed into the lungs and taken up by the
Wood and transmitted to every part of the body. Then
yon begin to feel out of sorts without ever suspecting the
cause. No energy or appetite, dull headaches, sleepy and
tired and completely fagged out from the slightest exer
tion, are some of the deplorable effects of this enfeebling
malady. As the disease progressesand the blood becomes
more deeply poisoned, boils and abscesses and dark or
yellow spots appear upon the skin. When the pofson is
left to ferment and the microbes and germs to multiply in
the blood, Liver and Kidney troubles and other serious complications often
arise. As Malaria begins and develops in the blood, the treatment to be
effective must begin there too. S. S. S. destroys
the germs and poisons and purifies the polluted
blood, and under its tonic effect the debilitated
constitution rapidly recuperates and the system is
soon clear of all signs of this depressing disease.
S. S. S. Is a guaranteed purely vegetable remedy, mild, pleasant and
harmless. Write us if you want medical advice or any special informa-
tiou, about your case. This will cost you nothing.
