"Bemidji is the best little city in
the entire western territory over
which I have traveled, which in
cludes Montana, Idaho and Utah,"
said J. M. Phillippi, former super
intendent of the Beltrami county
poor farm, who returned to Bemidji
Saturday from an extended trip over
Montana, Idaho and Utah.
Mr. Phillippi recently became a
stockholder in the Milwaukee Bat
tery Company, a new electric light
ing and power company, which has
a new method of generating and
dissemanating electricity. He took
the states of Montana, Utah and
Idaho as exclusive territory in which
to sell rights for his company and
traveled over practically every por
tion ot these states where there
were cities of any size.
"I found out in Montana that the
people who are living on the farming
and grazing land out there have
money, and they are all following
the exceedingly pleasant pastime of
looking for suckers,and they are
getting the 'biters,' too.
Out there in Montana mar men
have dug holes, salted the ground
quite thoroughly, bought a piece of
ore and had the same assayed as
coming out of his 'mine' and event
ually foisted upon some gulliable
easterner (at a big figure) a worth
less hole in the ground as 'pay dirt.'
"As for farming land, I can truth
fully, and without boasting, say that
none of it in Montana can compare
with the productive acres of the
good old 'North Star State.' You
can't buy land out there for less
than $65 an acre, and it costs a
small fortune to irrigate it. Much

Mr. Phillippi was accompanied on
