Mayor Ludington and Recorder
Bailey today took samples of the
well water and the city supply
from various sections of the city
to be sent to the state chemist
for anaylsis and the anaylsis
which should be reported in
about two weeks will definitely
decide the status of the water
supply of the city so far as its
purity is concerned.
Two anaylsis have been made
before and in each case the re
port of the state chemist was de
cidedly bad. The tests were not
regarded as eminently fair, how
ever, for the reason that the
samples sent were taken from
wells where it was possible for
surface water to be admitted
and in a number of cases the

Base Ball Cranks Try Out at
the Fair Grounds Yester
There was quite an attendance
of fans at the fair grounds yes
terday afternoon to see a matched
game of ball between two pick-up
teams. A five inning game was
played which was wcri by "The
Mogans" by a score of 10 to 7.
The game was for the purpose of
trying out the talent and looking
toward the organization of a team.
A meeting will be held at the
City hall Wednesday night and
at this time a team will be organ
ized. It is probable that arrange
ments will be made for a game
with Cass Lake next Sunday
afternoon at the home ground. A
fast fielding team is piomised
and a battery is working out that
is expected to develop satisfac
torily. Kane will probably pitch
next Sunday's game.

Bemidji Can Get Good Baseball,
But It Must Guarantee
D. J. Laxdahl, of Cavalier,
N. D., president of the Northern
League, E. H. Kent, of Grand
Forks, and W. S. Lycan, of
Orooston are in the city today
for the purjxnse of arranging for
the base ball which Bemidji will
have this year at the hands of the
All three gentlemen returned
this afternoon and while all the
details are not adjusted it is a
settled fact that Bemidji will
have at least ten of the schedule
games of the Northern league
during the coming summer.
The league officials asked for a
guarantee of expenses. The
league this year is made up of
the fastest teams, and in some
respects, some of the most ex
pensive teams it has ever had
and the most careful manage
ment will be required to let the
association out whole firancially.
There will be no trouble about
giving Bemidji ail the base ball it
wants but the league officials
feel that a guarantee is only
right and ask this from the city.
The game has always been well
patronized here and there is but
little doubt that the patronage
will be up to the usual high
standard this year."
A committee will take the mat
ter of a guarantee up with the
business public some time this
week. The schedule of games
is not yet definitely arranged
but there will be a number of
Sunday events and besides this
there will be good games here
on the occasion of the several ex
cursions which will come from
Northwestern points in June.

conditions will be all that could
be desired. The favorite fishing
grounds yesterday were at the
sorting gap in Lake Irvine.
Wm. Hubbard and a party
went early yesterday morning
and made a nice catch of pike
and have the distinction of catclu.
ing the first pike this season.
One of the largest catches was
made by J. Vogler and Peter
Larkin, the latter sustaining his
reputation of being the best
"snake" fisherman in town by
making a large catch of pickerel,
while others were unable to get
a bite. Mrs. K. E. Miller caught

From Lake Irvine to the head
waters of the river the Mississ
ippi is literally full of logs at the
present time. Most of the logs
are the property of the Brainerd
Lumber Company and are to be
brought to this city to be hoisted.
The first drive to arrive at Lake
Irvine reached the lake Saturday
and was brought in by E. H, Pel
ton. It is a small drive and was
brought down on the river about
eighteen miles. Work at the
sorting gap will propably be
begun this week and several
booms will be made up. There
is an excellent head of water in
all the lakes, the best in years
in fact and lumbermen say there
will be plenty of water to get out
all the drives if there should not
be a single rain this season.
Work on the river is in full blast
and is being conducted under
very satisfactory conditions.
