GO. K. FOOTBALL TEAM
PLAYS "RAPIDS" SUNDAY
Locals Look Like Winners for the
Game at Grand Rapids Sun-
The Company football team
will play its initial game for this
season at Grand Rapids Sunday,
when they will line up /against
the strong city team of that place.
It is expected that the game} will
be a heart-breaker, as the members
of Company team are all big
men who have had some experi
ence in football and are strong men,
their only drawback being that they
are not in the best physicial condi
Grand Rapids has a big bunch
of old football playersx and that
town has the reputation of turn
ing out some of the best gridiron
stars in northern Minnesota.
The members of the Company
team have been given some hard
practice during the past week and
are playing a fairly good game, but
they are soft and their physical con
dition is such that it will take some
little time yet before that will be
fit as fiddles."
It is believed, however, that they
will give a good account of them
selves at Grand Rapids.
The following will be the line-up
of the Company team at the
Otto, who has played with the U.
S. army regulars, center Hillaby
who has played on the Brainerd
team, rg, Tardy, with the U. S. army

Three or four subs will be taken
along, who have the reputation of

"hitting the line."
Undoubtedly quite a number of
Bemidji people will accompany the
Company team to Grand Rapids

A special telegram from Ashland

were in attendance at the Ashland
county fair on Wednesday to wit

of this city took a very rominent
According to the News-Tribune,
Mr. Newby drove Bessie Barolite to
third position in the 2 17 pace for
a purse of $400. There were seven
starters in this race and it was a
hot one all through, the best time
in the race being 19 Bessie
came in second in the first heat,
fourth in the second and third in the
Mr. Newby entered Brownie Mac
in the 2 30 pace and was an easy
second in every heat. The best
time in this race was 2 24^. As
Brownie's "record is near 2 30 it
is more than likely that Mr. Newby
did not care to win this race as he
would have been compelled to lower
his mare's record several seconds.
The free-for-all trot or pace, in
which Prince Hal of this city was
entered, was run off at Ashland
yesterday and at the present writing
it is not known what position the
Prince secured in the race. William
Begsley, one of the owners of Prince

Local Republicans Are Talking of Run-

Local republicans have been noti

republican candidate for president
of the United States, will deliver
an address at Crookston at 2 20
next Monday, at which time he will
be in the "Queen City" on a special

day morning and taking those who
desire to go from the towns between
Cass Lake and Crookston.
Should such a special be arranged
it is believed that a train load of
enthusiasts would go to Crookston
to hear Mr. Taft. It is rarely that
an opportunity is given to hear a
presidential candidate speak and as
the campaign this fall is a strenu
ous one, all who can go should hear
Mr. Taft, whether there is a special
train or not.

Akeley, the timber located on 4,800
acres of land in the vicinity of

the firm of Kaye & Carter, passed
through the city last evening and
corroborated the report of his firm's
purchase of the timber at Hines from
Walker & Akeley. Mr. Carter says
that the timber is principally cedar
and that it will take from four to
five years to remove the timber from
The deal for the purchase of the
timber was closed on Wedresday at
Minneapolis. The logging of the
cedar will mean much to Hines dur
