The confidence which the people of Be-
midji have shown in the work of Doran
Bros, during the year of 1904 has been
gratifying to them. The firm desires to
voice its appreciation of this confidence
so practically expressed by extending to
them a business that has been several
fold beyond their expectations. Prompt,
competent service has been the firm's
most strenuous endeavor in the past and
shall be in the future.

there never was such a puzzling
yet interesting character
placed before the public as in
these tales of Doyle's the first

his "A Study in Scarlet.".
In dramatizing this book, Hort
W. Sanford, found a very difficult
work, as Doyle has left out of his
story many of the essentials of
good play material.^ Neverthe
less Mr. Sanford has'pleasingly
supplied the necessary, with
which the plot of the book, has
constructed one of the strongest
and most delightful plays of the
dramatic season^ A Mr. Tom
Arthur, a Manager of many suc
cessful attractions has given "A
Study in Scarle#" and excellent
company and production, whiclr
is booked to appear sit the City
Opera house for one night.
