Several amendments were proposed

During the year 1906 we sold more lots in
Bemidji than any year previous.
The future of Bemidji is assured and
those intending to make this their home
should not fail to purchase residence lots
at this time. We also have a few good business

He Made a Mistake.
Into a Broadway'car stepped a man
and a woman, bothtyoung, well groom
ed and good looking. There were only
two vacant seats, amd they were on op
posite sides of the car, so, instead of
sitting side by side, they were divided.
Presently the man at the girl's right
hand gallantly arose and stumbled
over to the unfortunate young man. "I
will exchange seats wdth you, sir," he
The young man hesitated, blushed,
but accepted the offer. Everybody was
interested and expected to see the
young couple strike up a conversation
without delay. But they did not speak,
and when the conductor came around
the man dived down into his pocket
for a nickel, and the woman dug
around in her purse and brought up
another, and they paid their fares in
dependently. An audible sigh went up
from the rest of the passengers. The
man with the chivalric spirit felt
worse than anybody else, unless it was
the young people themselves, both of
whom understood the situation and
"Well, I don't care," growled the
gallant man finally,. "I did my duty
anyhow, and he has had the pleasure
of sitting beside her even If he doesn't
know her."New York Mail.
Romance of Stocking Knitter.
Romance may certainly figure in
many of the knitted waistcoats and
gorgeous stockings worn by our under
graduates today, but these have not
so romantic an origin as the first of
these articles produced in England, for
tradition has it that William Lee, who
in the sixteenth century Invented the
knitting frame on which both stock
ings and waistcoats were produced
mechanically, was driven to this piece
of Ingenuity by the cruel flouting of
the lady he loved, who happened to be
a stocking knitter. Enraged at his fail
ure to make an impression on her
heart, he sought to make it on her
purse by killing her means of liveli
hood, and one is glad to read that all
stocking makers combined to frustrate
his cruel purpose, with the result that
he fled with his invention to France,
where he finally died of a broken
heart, whether for love of his lady or
of his spoiled invention tradition does
not say.London Chronicle.
What "Yf" Spells.
A gentleman once received a letter in
which were these words:
"Not finding Brown at home, I deliv
ered your message to his yf."
The gentleman, finding it bad spell
ing, and therefore not being very in
telligible, called his lady to help him
read it. Between them they picked out
the meaning of all but the "yf," which
they could not understand. The lady
proposed calling her chambermaid, be
cause Betty, says she, has the best
knack at reading bad spelling of any
one I know.
Betty came, and was surprised that
neither sir nor madam could tell what
"Why," says she, "yf spells wife.
What else can It spell?"
And indeed it is a much better as
well as shorter method of spelling
wife than doubleyou, i, ef, e, which in
reality spell doubleyifey.-From a Let
ter by Benjamin Franklin.
Birds Evolved From Reptiles.
It may be a shock to some persons to
learn that the birds of the present day
are descendants of reptiles. This fact
has been conclusively proved by the
fossil remains of creatures that form
the intermediate stages between the
birds of today and the reptiles of pre
historic ages. In fact, many of the
birds have not yet completed their ev
olution, as in the case of the penguin,
Whose wings are merely rudimentary,
absolutely inadequate for flying pur
poses and useful only as a means of
propelling these awkward creatures
through the water.
Too Much For Him.
"Andrew," said a devoted wife to
her husband, "I want $100."
"A hundred what?" exclaimed the
"Dollars," she replied calmly.
"Oh, a whole lot of things."
"Umum,' heJiesitated. "I guess I
shall have to check your extravagance,
"Do," she smiled, "and make it pay
able to my order, please."
He collapsed then and there.
Ruskin and Chrysanthemums.
Mr. Ruskin was asked if he did not
admire chrysanthemums. Now, he lik
ed nothing abnormal or artificial, and
he regarded the production of chrysan
themums as an unhallowed attempt to
grow flowers at a season when nature
meant that there should be no flow
ers, and so the startling answer came,
"I hate chrysanthemums."Westmin-

ANOTHER PARASITE VICTIM
One of the most stubborn cases
that tb.8 medical profession has
met with for some time is that of
Mr. Nick Emmerick, of 1344
Louis Avenue, Milwaukee, Wis.
Mr. Emmerick has been suffer

acute stomach trouble, but treat

cians for that malady had no
In a recent letter regarding
his strange caserne said: "I was
always tired my stomach bloated
and the slightest exertion made
me sick, weak and dizzy. A good
appetite and a good night's sleep
were unknown to me. When I
awoke in the mornings I had a
bad taste in my mouth and a
coated tongue. I was quite dis
couraged, but when I heard of
the wonderful benefits that were
being derived in similar cases
from Mr. Cooper's New Dis

To ascertain the time at night the
Apache Indians employ a gourd on
Which the stars of the heavens are
marked. As the constellations rise in
the sky the Indian lefers to his gourd
and finds out the hour. By turning the
gourd around he can tell the order in
which the constellations may be ex
pected to appear. The hill people of
Assam reckon time and distance by
the number of quids of betel nuts
chewed. It will be remembered how,
according to Washington Irving, Gov
ernor Wouter van Twiller dismissed
the Dutch colonial assembly invaria
bly at the last puff of his third pipe of
tobacco. A Montagnis Indian of Can
ada will set up a tall stick in the snow
when traveling ahead of friends who
are to follow. He marks with his foot
the line of shadow cast, and by the
change in the angle of the shadow the
oncoming party can tell on arriving at
the spot about how far ahead the
leader is. Doubtless the first time
keeper was the stomach, which noti
fied its owner when the hour for a
Battles Decided by a Single Shot.
There are certainly three instances
on record of a siege or battle having
been decided by a single shot. First in
order of importance was the shot be
lieved to have been fired by one of his
own men which killed Charles XII. in
the trenches of the fortress of Fried
richstein, which immediately led to the
raising of the second siege of Fried*
richshall. This is perhaps the most im
portant musket shot ever fired in the
history of the world. Next comes the
discharge of the mortar fired by Lord
Cochrane during the defense of Port
Trinidad in 1808. This shot foiled a
French surprise and saved the fortress.
Lastly, there was the single discharge
of grapeshot which saved the fortress
and town of Haddington in 1548. The
French invaders had actually forced
their way into the outworks of the cas
tle when the one well directed shot
created such havoc in their densely
packed ranks that there ensued an Im
mediate panic, which ended in flight.
Loui Napoleon Answered.
Lady Blessington did not always
meet with gratitude from some whose
position at last enabled them to serve
her. She sheltered In her London home
Louis Napoleon after he had escaped
from his prison in Ham. After Louis
Napoleon became president of the
French republic he seems to have
turned the cold shoulder on Lady
Blessington and Count D'Orsay when
they approached him in Paris.- There
was a story going at the time, for the
accuracy of which we certainly will
not vouch, but which appeared in sev
eral of the London papers. Shortly be
fore Lady Blessington's death she met,
so the story goes, the president driving
in the Champs Elysees. He stopped
his carriage, she stopped hers, and they
conversed for a few minutes. His
manner seemed to her determinedly
chilly. "Do you stay long in Paris?"
he asked as he was about to drive on.
"No," she answered. "And you?"
George Eliot and "Romola."
George Eliot's first arrangement with
the publisher of "Romola" was for no
less a sum than 10,000 guineas. "As
that is so very large a figure," he said,
"I must run it through fifteen numbers
of the Cornhill." "No," she answered
"it must finish in twelve numbers or
the artistic effect of the story will be
lost I quite understand the necessity
for Its-prolongation from a commercial
point of view, so we'll say 7,000
guineas instead of the 10,000." And
7J0O0 guineas was accordingly paid for
the copyright. Three thousand guineas
seem a large sum to give up for an
artistic scruple, but she did It
