Up to Their Agreement With

Hansen and Engineer George A.

from Kelliher, where they have
been to inspect the state ditch
just completed by Contractor
The ditch is three miles in
length straight through a tama
rack swamp, emptying into Shot
ley Brook According to Mr.
Hansen, however, the ditch is not
of the benefit which it should be
inasmuch as the citizens of the
county who persuaded the com
mission to dig the ditch agreed
to dig one and one half miles of
the ditch themselves to complete
it and this has not been done.
"It was also agreed," said Mr.
fiansen, that corduroy should'
be laid along the route of the
ditch upon which the dirt from
the ditch was to be thrown, This
would have made a fine road and
the road would have beea even
more valuable than the ditch.

HEARING O N
Crookston Land Office Taking
Testimony in Spooner
The Spooner contest case, in
which a number of local gentle
men are heavily interested, is be
ing heard before the officials of
the Crookston land office today
and the result of the hearing will
be eagerly looked for as the case
has cause considerable comment
throughout the entire county.
Matt Gannon, chairman of the
board of supervisors of Spooner
township, made application to
file for homestead purposes,
upon 80 acres of land which in
volved the townsite, but his ap
plication was refused by the offi
cials of the Crookston land office,
as the land had been entered
some time before by gentlemen
from Bemidji and Baudette for
townsite purposes The law pro
vides that a county judge may
make filing upon land for town
site purposes upon the petition
of other individuals, and Judge
Spooner of this city accordingly
filed upon the land The question
to be settled today is whether

Pleasant to Take.
The finest quality of granulated
loaf sugar is used in the manu
facture of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, and the roots used in
its preparation give it a flavor
similar to maple syrup, making
it quite pleasant to take. Mr.
W. Roderick, of Poolesville,
Md., in speaking of this remedy,
says: "I have used Chamber

children for several years and

Veteran Salesman of Fire Ap
paratus Gives Interview
SAYS" BEMIDJI BADLY NEEDS
Cost at First Would Be Consid
erable But After Installa
Since the first mention of a
new fire alarm system for Be
midji, opinions have been solicited
from the business men of the
city as to their views on the sub
ject and it seems that the need of
some arrangement which would
turn in an alarm with dispatch is
apparent to all. Not a dissent
ing voice has been heard, and
those who are most heavily inter
ested in fire protection because
of their large realty holdings are
in fay or of bringing about the in
stallation of a new system at
once. The recent mistakes and
delays which have occurred be
cause of the failure of the pres
ent system to be effective have
set many people to thinking very
seriously on the matter and it is
possible that the city council will
W. M. Gibson, the Waterous
fire apparatus salesman, was in
the city yesterday and gave out
his views regarding the installa
tion of a plant here. Mr. Gibson
was of the opinion that a city the
size of Bemidji and which was
composed of so many wooden
buildings should have some ade
quate means to turn in a fire
alarm which would register at a
central station the locality of the
fire in such a manner that no
mistake on the part of the firemen
could be made."
He explained the mechanism of
the Gamewell, one of the systems
which are used in small cities,
and while he does not handle thi^
system, he recommended it very
highly as the only one which
would give effective service and
was reliable. "The system,"
said Mr. Gibson, "that would be
required for a city of this size,
would be about a ten box plant.
The city could be divided into
ten districts with one of the
boxes placed in each, the location
of the box and the key which
would be used in turning in an
alarm to be known to the resi
dents in that section of the city.
It could be so arranged that the
district in which the fire was lo
cated would be registered at the
central fire station where the ap
paratus is kept and also at the
electric light plant. In case the
fire started in district No. 1, one
toot of the whistle would notify
the firemen, in district No. 2,
two toots, etc."
It is understood that the fran
chise which was granted to the
telephone company by the village
council when the telephone ex
change was instituted here was
with the provision that the com
pany's poles were to be used
should a fire alarm system be in
stalled. This would consider
ably diminish the cost of a plant.

Local Recruiting Office Does
Big Business During
Past Few Days.
During the past three days
Sergeant Witte of the local re
cruiting office has secured eigh
teen men for service in the
United States army, fourteen of
which will be sent to their des
tination today and the remainder
in a couple of days. Of these
who will be shipped today, seven
will go direct to Honolulu, five to
Seattle and two to New Yor* for
service in the hospital corps.
Most of the recruits now being
enlisted are woodsmen and have
been tempered by the many win
ters they have worked in the
woods to endure the hardships
of army life. Sergeant Witte is
making an enviable record as a
recruiting officer in Bemidji, and
few stations in the country have
enlisted so many men as the one

Fortune Teller Makes Prom
ise to Locate Lost Money,
GIRL GAVE HER $30 TO MAKE
SEARCH FOR VALUABLES.
Promised to Return to Bemidji,
But No Sign of Her Has Been
Seen as Yet.
What seems to be one of the
most clever bunco games ever
perpetrated in Bemidji was
pulled off by a trayeling fortune
teller and as a result Miss Ida
Olson, a young lady who rooms
on lower Bemidji avenue, is shy
$30 in money which she bor
rowed from her sister.
Miss Olson does family sewing
in the city and upon returning
home from her work one evening
about three weeks ago found that
her trunk had been opened and
$18 in money had been taken
from the tiunk during her ab
sence. She did not notify the
police of the occurrence, but up
on the arrival of a fortune teller
in Bemidji last week consulted
her and learned that it was a
part of the profession to locate
lost or stolen money. She en
gaged the woman, who, upon
commencing the search for the
missing com, asked the girl for
$30, and promised that with this
amount and her mysterious
power she would locate the
money and return the whole
amount to the girl
Miss Olson replied that she
had no money, but upon being
pressed by the fortune teller,
she went to ner sister, who is em
ployed at the Bemidji Steam
laundry, and borrowed the nec
essary amount to carry on the
search. She handed it to the
woman, who went away promis
ing that the money would be paid
back last Monday However, the
young lady waited until yester
day and no trace of the lost trea
sure has developed and she now
thinks that she has been swin
In speaking to a Pioneer re
porter this afternoon, Miss Olson
said that the fortune teller looked
so honest that the thought of be
ing swindled never entered her
mind, and took it as a matter of
course that the return of her
money, amounting in all to $48,
was only a question of time. She
says that the next time she loses
money she will profit by the les
son and pursue a different course
for its recovery.
Foot Ball Dance.
The foot ball dance to be given
tomorrow evening by the local
team at the city hall promises to
be one of the most successful
social functions of the season. A
large crowd will be present and
already many tickets have been
sold by members of the team.
The usual precautions for the ex
elusion of obnoxious characters
will be taken and the floor will
be managed in the best possible
manner. The Bemidji orchestra,
which have been engaged to furn
ish music, have recently received
a large amount of the latest
music available, and will un
doubtedly give good satisfaction.
Carelessness is responsible for
many a railway wreck and the
same causes are making human

can be cured, and hopeless resig
nation is no longer necessary.
