MOSHER OF ST. PAUL IS
A CHAMPION FISH LIAR
Tells of a Huge Pickerel, and
Monster's Knowledge of the
Recently, Curtis L. Mosher of S i
Paul, secretary of the Minnesota
State Federation of Commercial
Clubs and manager of the Consoli
dated Publicity Bureau of St. Paul,
made a visit to Blackduck, Bemidji
and Bagley. Incidentally, he made
the acquaintance of the religious
editor hereof, and we gave him some
valuable pointers concerning fishing
in this north country.
We liked Mosher but our faith in
him has been rudely shaken. We
have, in our time, "sprung" a few
fish stories, but following, which has
been sent out from St. Paul by
Mosher, reaches over anything we
ever dreamed of. We quit.
This is what Mosher wrote and
sent out to the world for the George
Washington brand of truth:
1 Saint Paul, June 14Few more
remarkable experiences have ever
befallen a fisherman than those of
Nathan Rosenstein of Saint Paul,
who in early August of last year
borrowed a bamboo pole and the
price of a rowboat from *Doc' Rut
ledge and went fishing in beautiful
Lake Bemidji. Rosenstein caught
seven sunfish and a perch and was
about to give up and quit when an
enormous pickerel made a furious
dash at his bait.
"Rosenstein had just placed his
pipe between his teeth and was
exploring his trousers pocket for a
match. The suddenness of the
"strike" startled him and he jerked
his pole with his free hand while
involuntarily tugging at the other
to get it free from the pocket. All
would have gone well, but for the
pocket flap which caught his hand
and held it for a second. Another
vicious tug freed the fork manipu
lator, but as it came loose a ten
dollar gold piece slipped out of
the pocket and rolled toward the
gunwale. Rosenstein dropped the
pole and grabbed for the coin but
it slid overboard and with a dull
"chug" slipped gently downward
through the clear water. Fasci-
this, Rosenstein?' he
"Rosenstein poked around with
the knife and uncovered fifty-eight
cents in small silver coins and
pennies. It was interest at the legal
rate on the lost ten-dollar gold piece.
Rosenstein's pickerel bank" has
already become a part of the classic
lore of the Lake Bemidji anglers.
They proudly show the spot where
the big pickerel was cleaned in proof
of the veracity of this account.".,.

Camp Lakeview, June- 18.
(Special to Pioneer.)The regi

"fanning" six men in the first two
innings. Five hundred soldiers
witnessed the game on parade
ground and there was great excit
ment and enthusiasm.
Company began rifle practice

will be on the range twelve hours.
The camp is in splendid condition

To The Owners of Launches.
All who have launches are re
quested to donate the same for the
use of visiting Elks as much as
possible if they care to do so. It
would be a great convenience to the
local committee and will be greatly
appreciated, and would be a very
kind act on the part of the owners.
Any owner who is willing to
donate the use of his launch at any
time is requested to notify L. G.
Crothers, J. C. Covington, Eric Ives
or Scott Stewart.
Waiting Patiently for Opening.
Cass Lake, June 19.(Special to
Pioneer.)Twenty-eight men are
still anxiously waiting in front of the
U. S. land office here for the open
ing of the large tract, of land lying
around Cass Lake.
Notwithstanding the fact that this
land may not open for a year, the
men feel contented and make their
home day and night at the land
office. They have drawn up an
agreement whereby each may go to
his meals and all swear to protect
each other in event o trouble.
The land to be opened consists of
75,000 acres and contains some of
the finest timber in the state.

WHAT THE KIDNEYS DO.
Their Unceasing Work Keeps
Strong and Healthy.
All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every
three minutes. The kidneys filter
the blood. They work night and
day. When healthy they remove
about 500 grains of impure matter
daily, when unhealthy some part
of this impure matter is left in the
blood. This brings on many
diseases and symptomspain in
the back, headache, nervousness,
hot, dry skin, rheumatism, gout,
gravel, disorders of the eyesight
and hearing, dizziness, irregular
heart, debility, drowsiness, dropsy,
deposits in the urine, etc. But if
nated by the sight, Rosenstein couldj you keep th.e filters right you will
but sit and watch. Then a curious
thing happened. The big pickerel,
wrenching himself free from the
hook, and attracted by the shining
coin, swung under the boat. The
great jaws opened and the coin
disappeared before Rosensteins ver'y
"A few days ago Rosenstein was
again on Lake Bemidji and made a
fairly good day's catch. Trolling
back towards the dock in the even
ing, he felt a strike, and after a
furious ten-minute battle landed an
enormous pickerel. It looked familiar,
but when he reached the dock and
began to strip his catch, what was
his surprise on splitting the big pick
erel to find the ten dollar gold piece
lost last fall. "Doc" eyed the fish and
then went at it again with his knife.

James Bridges, living on Third
St., Bemidji, Minn,, says I am
glad to have the opportunity of
recommending Doan's -Kidney
Pills to others, as I know them to
be a reliable remedy At the time
I began their use, I was feeling
very miserable. There was a
severe pain in the small of my
back, the kidney secretions were
dark and unnatrual in appearance
and I had great pain while pass
ing them, I saw Doan's Kidney
Pills highly recommended for such
complaints and procured a box at
the Owl Drug Store. They helped
me so much that I procured a
second supply and the relief I
received was wonderful. I am
now entirely free from pain and
my kidneys are more normal in

Three Alleged Members Shot" to
Death at New Orleans.
ATTEMPT TO EXTORT.MONEY
Wealthy Wine Dealer Resents the
Continued Demands of a Blackmail
ing Gang and Uses His Rifle With
New Orleans, June 1 .Following
a series of crimes attributed to so
called "Black Hand" societies in the
Italian quarter of New Orleans one of
the worst tragedies yet connected
with that section took place when.
three Italians were shot to death.
According to the police these men
were killed as a result of an attempt
to extort money from Pietro Giacona,
a wealthy Italian wine merchant. Gia
cona and his son told the police that
these men had frequently bought wine
from them by the barrel and had in
variably refused to pay for it. Ac
cording to their story the three forced
them to ship a barrel of wine to a
point In Louisiana and then ordered
them to prepare a meal.
The elder Giacona suspected that
trouble would ensue and hid a repeat
ing rifle near the table. When one of
the visiting Italians drew a heavy re-

CAMPING IN THE PARKS.
Steerage Passengers Unable to Get
Aboard Outgoing Vessel.
New York, June 1 I.More than a
thousand persons holding steerage
tickets for European ports were left
"behind by the steamer Potsdam when
she sailed, with her steerage quarters
filled to the capacity of 2,000. The
thousand who were unable to find ac
commodations In the ship were as
sured that they would be taken on the
next outgoing steamer, but many of
them made determined "efforts to get
on board the Potsdam. They were
held in check, however, by a large
force of policemen who had been sum
moned to the pier.
Many of the prospective passengers
have little or no money beyond what
will be required to gel them to their
homes and it is likely that they will
remain in one of Hoboken's parks,
where they are now camped, until the
next steamer sails.
