A BIT OF HISTORY.
The Duluth Herald calls at
tention to the history of the city
ofOshkosh, Wisconsin. It
once the seat of a great lumber
industry and it was freely pre
dicted that when lumbering was
done Oshkosh would become a
country village. But lumbering
is done in Oshkosh and the place
is a city of 40,000. Saginaw City,
Mich., was built on pine logs, and
there were once 30 big sawmills in
the city. Today there is not a saw
mill in the entire Saginaw valley,
but Saginaw is a city of 60,000.
The business men of Oshkosh
and the business men of Saginaw
did it. They encouraged manu
factures until these cities are
today noted as manufacturing
centers in their respective states.
Bemidji has every advantage of
location and natural resources
-and can become just as big and
'flourishing as Oshkosh or Sag
inaw or many other towns whose
history has been the same.
THE northwest an,d northern
Minnesotainparticular is intense
ly interested in the outcome of
_the struggle for control of
'Northern Pacific. The attitude
of northern Minnesota is voiced
by the business men of Duluth
when they declare that -vjt
would result in serious injury to
the entire northwest should Har
riman gain control of the great
north line to the coast. Harri
man's interests aie not with
this country where Hill's are and
if one of them must have the
Northern Pacific it is certainly
far better for the northwest that
it should be Hill.
No MAN in many years in Am
erica has been more viciously at
tacked than Marcus A. Hanna
and now that he is dead, what
ever may be our opinion as to
his ability and greatness, we are
all agreed that he rendered to
these United States the services
of a real statesman inJierJiour of
need. There is a moral to all
this and that is when you are
worthy ofTso much attack you

A GREAT public school for boys
and girls, men and women will
shortly be opened at St. Louis.
It is safe to say that the big fair
will teach the American people
and the world in general a very
great deal. Most of us will go
there for the pleasure but we
will study the lessons set forth
just the same. When the fair is
done the world will probably be

Whenever a "sore or ulcer is slow in healing then you may be sure
something is radically wrong with your blood. Some old taint or jwison
that has been slumbering there for years, is beginning to assert itself,
and breaks out and becomes, a, bad ulcer and perhaps the beginning of
Cancer." These old sores are rooted in the blood, and while washes, soaps,
salves, etc., keep the surface clean, they are not healing. A blood

and a tonic to build up the general system is what
