PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH.
While we advise all business men
to advertise, and while we believe
that business success can be obtained
in no other manner? we propose to
practice what we preach, and there
fore we advertise/The Pioneer as
the best local paper published in
north-central Minnesota. It is a
journal which may be taJtcen with
the most implicit confidence. Its
pages will never be soiled by any
thing that is objectionable* and its
advertising columns cannot be pur
chased for immoral announcements,
at any price.
The Pioneer is emphatically a
local journal, designed to be a home
history of the living present. No
movement for the benefit of society
will be allowed to go unnoticed but
we will heartily second the efforts
of any individual or any class where
their objects are for the improve
ment of the community, financially
Any newspaper is the companion
and friend of the familv, but the
local papr is one identified with the
interest of the home. It isconducttd
by those whom you know. Its
columns are filled with what is of
special value to you. In its pros
perity you have a vital interest, and
to its prosperity you can best con
tribute by giving your support and
patronage. It is your neighbor.
Its interests are your interests. It
is your friend, it, in preference to all
No outside or foreign paper can
possibly have claims upon you until
your duty is discharged to the local
Of him who says he can get a city
paper much larger than his own
local journal for the same amount of
money, we would inquire:
Do the city papers say anything
about your country, its climate,
water, healthfulness, soil, products,
improvements, mills, churches
schools, etc., etc? Nothing, volun
Do they mention your public meet
ings, your city and county news, and
the other thousand and one matters
of interest which your home paper
publishes without pay? Not much.
Do they ever say a word, gratis,
calculated to draw to your city or
county and aid in bringing immi
grants and developing the wealth of
your community? Not a line.
And yet there are men who take
such contracted views of the matter
that unless they get as many square
inches of reading matter in their
own county paper as they do in the
city paper, they think that they are
not getting the worth of their money.
Your local newspaper works for
its own town does all it can to
build up the place, advance the in
terests of its citizens, draw trade to
the town, put money into the pockets
of the business men, and adds to
the well-being of all.
Such a paper is entitled to the
liberal patronage from the town and
community it works for.
The columns of the Pioneer are
of great value to advertisers, our
subscription list enabling us to
place the announcements for our
business men before a greater num
ber and a better class of readers
than can any other medium, and at
much less expense.
A local journal cannot hope to
compete with the improved presses
and immense circulations of big
dailies but there is much satisfaction
derived from local news in local
Our jobbing department is pro
vided with a line of up-to-date type
suitable for all classes of commercial
printing, and we always keep on
hand the best brands of paper stock,
etc. The Pioneer Printery is second
to none in north-central Minnesota.
DAVIS CRITICISES VERDICT
Mrs. Sutton's Attorney Issues State
ment on Case.
Washington, Aug. 21.Sharply criti
olsing the conclusions of the court of
Inquiry which recently reinvestigated
the death of Second Lieutenant James
N. Sutton, Henry E Davis, counsel
for the mother of the dead officer, in
a statement declares that the judge
advocate was derelict in his duty in
not conforming the two legal proposi
tions submitted by Mr. Davis. Had
he done so and the court heeded him,
Mr. Davis continues, "it would have
been absolutely obliged to exclude the
hypothesis of suicide and almost as
certainly to exclude the hypothesis of
a wound self-inflicted in any manner
as the explanation of the cause of
Lieutenant Sutton's death."

WINS BY NARROW MARGIN
Heney Secures Democratic Nomina
tion for District Attorney.
San Francisco, Aug. 21.Francis J.
Heney was nominated for district at
tornev on the Democratic ticket at the
recent primaiy by the narrow margin
of 124 votes. The Democrats put no
candidate in the field for this office, so
that the voters had to write in the
names of candidates.
Charles Fickert, the regular Repub
lican candidate, secured 2,260 Demo
cratic votes, against 2,384 for Heney.
On the Republican ticket Pickert's
name was punted on the ballot, while
Heney's friends had to write in hia
name. On this ticket the vote was
11,658, Heney 4,364.
The same two names figured also on
the Union Labor ticket, the vote be
ing Fickert 3,186, Honey 684.
The Heney total vote is 7,396, Fick
ert 17.004. Heney thus becomes the
regular Democratic candidate for dis
trict attorney, although he announced
his allegiance to the Republican party
pome time ago.

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications. s tb^y caunot reach
the diseased portion of the ear There is
only ope way to cure deafness, and that is by
constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused
by an inflamed condition of the mucus lining
of the Eustachian Tube When this tube is
inflamed yon have a rambling^ sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the
infiamation can be taken out and this tube
restored to Its normal condition, hearing will
be destroyed foreverj nine cases out of ten
are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but
an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
