Notwithstanding the fact that
we have heard so much in the
past two years about rural deliv
ery routes it will probably sur
prise most people to know that
there are now over 1,200 rural
routes in Minnesota and the two
Dakotas. So numerous have
they become that a separate divi
sion for this territory has been
created with headquarters at St.
Paul and it is announced that the
number of rural routes within
the three states will within a few
months be increased to at least
2,000. Next to the public schools
and the press the postoffice de
partment has been the greatest
educative force in the world and
it is probable that no single de
velopment of the postal service
has, had so great an influence
upon the political and social
progress of the nation as has the
installation of the rural delivery
system. Think what 2,000 rural
routes will accomplish in Minne
sota, North and South Dakota
in keeping the farmers of these
states in close touch with each
other and with the rest of the
world. Rural routes are destined
to work a wonderful change in
the civilization of the present day
and abundant signs of that
change are already evident.
THE progress made by the

success of the ladies in this

The project to establish a library
was broached scarce a half a

The recent republican state
convention sat upon a volcano's
edge for several days. That
there was not an eruption and
desperate trouble for the party
was due, to the firmness and
justice of Senator Clapp as chair
man and to the fine skill with
which the leaders of the party
piloted the convention to the har
monious end of its labors. The
fate of the party lay in the hands
of the committee on credentials
and most ably did the fifteen
gentlemen who composed that
committee discharge their
duty. The lepublican party of
Minnesota should be proud that
it has men of such courage and
ability. Northern Minnesota
was represented on the com
mittee by Senator A. D. Stevens
of Crookston and it is largely due
to his skillful leadership that
