eral line bands and the Grand

Shy In His Accounts.
At Little Falls, on Friday,
Joseph La Due, the local repre
setative of the Minneapolis Brew
ing Co. was arraigned on a charge
of embezzlement of funds belong
ing to the company. He was
dismissed from his place several
days ago, and it is alleged that
an examination of his books
shows him to be about $1,100
short in his account. Upon his
hearing, Friday, La Due was

Manager Kayna Released as The
Official Head of Base
Thos. Kayne, who has since
the organization of the local base
ball team managed the club was
yesterday released and there is
a heap of gossip of all sorts in
base ball circles today,
The financing of the team has
all along been a problem and yes
terday matters so shaped them
selves that those who are most
directly interested in the team
found it necessary to dispense
with the manager. Mr. Kayne
has worked hard in his position
and is to be given credit for hav
ing gotten together a good team,
but does not play the game him
self and has been unsatisfactory
in the position for some time.
Nevertheless he has many friends
in the city who will regret that
the season has not been of a
financial success and would not
admit of his retention longer.
The expense list of the club
has not yet been met and a sub
scription of $300 per month will
be necessary to meet the actual
expenses. This will no doubt be
easily secured. The season is
nearing an end but there are
many fans in the city who hope
to see some good games yet. The
home team is fast now and is
playing winning ball.
The new managers will be the
Messrs. Brooks and Barker and
the team will be directly in
charge of Pitcher Witt. It will
be conducted as economically as
possible and the management will
make every effort to come out
whole on the season.
Meeting Will Be Held at Buena
Vista on Regular Dates
August 27 and 28.
The Old Settlers' association
met at the city hall last night and
the meeting was called to order
at 8:30 b}' Chairman Nye. Mr.
Nye stated the business of the
meeting and D. C. Smyth made a
motion to hold the next meeting
of the association at Buena Vista.
The motion was carried after
some debate, after which some
discussion arose as to who were
members of the association, the
affairs having become somewhat
mixed by a couple of unfortunate
circumstances. It was decided,
however, to allow all old settlers
who were present to remain
members of the association upon
payment of their annual dues,
and the following members com
plied: J. W. Speelman, Anton
Gordon, L. G. Pendergast, D. C.
Smyth, J. E. Cahill, John Wil
mann, P. M. Dicaire, P. J. Rus
sell and M. D. Stoner.
The secretary was instructed
to notify all members of the asso
ciation of the meeting which will
be held August 27 and 28, and to
do all in his power to enlarge the
membership. A committee con
sisting of L. G. Pendergast, D. C.
Smyth, M. D. Stoner and J. W.
Speelman was elected to make
arrangements for the coming
meeting of the association, after
which the meeting was ad
BIG DRIVE HUN
Low Water Ties Up Clearwater
Logging Co.'s Drive Near
Manager Parker of the Clear
water Logging company reports
the hanging up of the big forty
million drive, headed for the big
mill in Crookston, a short dis
tance above Red Lake Palls. As
a result, the crew of a hundred
and fifty men are busily engaged
in making arrangements for the
sudden rush of water which has
been held back at Plummer's
dam and other up river points
and vdiieh will lifb the logs over
the low sand bars of the Clear
water and into the Red Lake
A hundred and fifty drivers are
employed on the large drive and
four large wannagans are utilized
in the housing of the crew. Red
Lake river is at a very good driv
ing stage because of the exceed
ingly high level i:i the lake this
summer. Clearvvater, however,
is low and the logging company
is well satisfied in getting the
drive down so successfully.

Some Good Things Grow On
Top of the World At
STRAWBERRIES EIGHT INCHES
Tame Hay Four Tons to The
Acre, Hard After Banana
Strawberries eight inches in
circumference, the largest, aver
age forty-six berries to the quart,
and tame hay which goes four
tons j# the acre are two things
that go to show that Beltrami
county soil is good for something
besides raising jackpine and
misquitoes after all.
These things are a reality and
grow on the Summit farm at
Buena Vista. The strawberries
will yield about 720 quarts to the
acre and are reasonably worth
ten cents a quart. The gross
receipts for a single acre would
be $720. The hay will bring $15
per ton making a gross of $60
per acre. It ought to pay to
farm in Beltrami county.
Summit farm is owned by J.
W. Speelman. It is one of the
finest in the county. The soil in
that section is very rich and the
story of the strawberries and
tame hay wilt be borne out by
any number of people who have
recently visited the Speelman
Beltrami is-surely hard after
the banana belt record with its
tame hay and strawberries. Be
sides these there are other
things. Only a few miles from
the city of Bemidji is the Casler
farm, where one of the most
magnificent crops of wheat and
rye one could well wish to see is
standing almost five feet high.
Crops are looking fine all around.
There is complaint of lack of
moisture in some sections but
the harvest in this section if it is
small in acres will be bountiful
Arrangements For a Ten Round
Go Between Cutler and
Arrangements are in progress
for a ten-round boxing contest
between Charles Cutler, of this
city and James Arnold, of Hib
bing. A side bet of $100 has been
posted by friends of the boxers
and the match is to come off some
time within the next six weeks.
The place of the fight is not yet
decided. Cutler is very fast and
has many friends and admirers
in this city who believe he will be
sufficient for Arnold and should
win the bout. Much interest in
the event is being evinced by
local partisans of the game.
The city council met in regular
session last night. Mr. Arnold,
representing the town board of
Northern township, was in at
tendance at the meeting with a
request that the council lend
some assistance toward building
a road through a portion of that
town to Bemidji. The council,
although admitting the necessity
of the road, was of the opinion
that at the present time nothing
could be done in a financial way
to assist in the building of the
road. The recorder was in
structed to advertise for bids for
the erection of a pump house
near the Warfield electric plant
and also for laying mains. The
council was told of the condition
of the bridge across the Mississ
ippi river and a committee was
appointed to inspect the bridge
and report at the next meeting
with recommendations as to what
repairs it requires.

M. & I. Said to be Considering
Project of Through Night Train
From Bemidji to Cities.
A rumor is current to the effect
that the Minnesota & Interna
tional is to put on a night train
between Bemidji and the Twin
Cities. The new service has been
und^r discussion for some lime
and there is said to be quite a
demand for ic.
It would be a convenience that
the traveling men and business
men of this section would greatly
appreciate and would greatly in
crease the N. P.'s business out
of this city. The recent change
in time makes the Great North
ern preferrable for travel to
Minneapolis and St. Paul now
and the -M. & I. is expected to
meet this condition with the new
service. There would probably
be a through sleeper from this
city to St. Paul and the run
would leave here to connect with
No. 4. on the main line of the
Northern Pacific at Brainerd.
