Turtle Tiver Homesteader Has
Privilege of Seeing an Unusual
Sight at Gnat Lake.
Louis Weishan, a homesteader
living near Turtle River, enjoyed
a privilege last Saturday after

wolves, who harassed it unti^fa

Gnat lake is a short distance
from Turtle River and the deer
which was a fawn about a year
and a half old was killed while
Mr. Weishan watched the fray.
The animal came out of the brush
on the shore line pursued by the
pack and decided to stand a fight
on the ice.
The packs was compoed of four
magnificent timber wolves and
although the deer battled pluck
ily for its life it was compelled
to give up at last. It fought with
its hoofs fiercely for a few min
utes, but the strain began to tell
and its efforts to protect itself
became more feeble Suddenly
one of of the largest of the pack
leaped at the fawn and fastened
his fangs into his neck. The
other three quickly followed and
the fawn was down and out in a
The ice in the yicinity of the
spot where the light occurred
was spattered with blood and
the hungry animals devoured the
entire carcass. Mr. Weishan
was unarmed or he would have
taken the side of the fawn.

drives will be in Lake Irving by
the first of July. The logs will

of them go tb Brainerd, but a

Carl J. Carlson, one of Bemid
ji's pioneer residents died yester
day morning at his home on Be
midji avenue after a seventeen
days' illness of erysipelas.

a sad surprise to a wide circle of
friends. During all his life he

not deemed serious "until a few
days before his death.
Mr. Carlson came to Bemidji
in '96 and has sucessfully con
ducted a blacksmith business

respected by many friends and
the family will have much sincere
sorrow in their sudden bereave

Depends on Inspection.
Judge Reynolds, captain of the
militia company this morning re
ceived a letter from Adjutant
General Libby, regarding-the ap
pointment of the independent
military company to a place in
one of the state regiments. Gen
eral Libby states that he will ap
point the company to the first
vacancy. The annual inspection
of the state militia is now being
conducted and the inspecting
officer will report next week It
is regarded by those who are in
formed on the matter as probable
that the company at Fergus Falls
will be mustered out and this
will make the vacancy that the
boys in Bemidji have been wait
ing for. The last two inspections
of the Fergus Falls company did
not. find it up to-the- ..required
standard and the present inspec
tion is the third and last. Cap
tain Reynolds will call a meeting
o the company some time the
latter part of this week and ex

the exact time tomorrow.
