Among the also rana might be
mentioned thai gold discovery near
The Johnson-Jeffries pictures are
all right. The newsboys of Duluth
saw them and the verdict is unani
Cigaret boxes are to be made
smaller but boxes for those who
use them will continue to be about
six feet long.
A Panhandle train made 100 miles
an hour into Chicago. That's run
ning almost as fast as Steenerson did
on election day.
It is said that lames Gray, demo
cratic candidate for governor, may
publicly declare for county option.
It doesn't much matter.
G. L. Hanson only walked.
Cass Lake Times.
Thanks for the information.
Thought maybe he hobbled.
According to the new directory
Duluth has 83,000. She will con
tinue to have that population until
the federal census figures arrive.
In Chicago parents are fretting
because their children run to school.
In Bemidji the word "from" should
be substituted for the word "to."
Clarence Miller's plurality in the
eighth district is more than 8.000.
McKnight was slightly in en or when
on the eve of election he said he
would win over Clarence by 5,000.
As the result of a liquor drinking
bet Andrew Sehostrick of Whiting,
Ind., drank one quart of whiskey
and four bottles of beer. Then he
fell over dead which was no safe
thing for a man like him to do.
A DISGRACEFUL GOVERNOR.
Perhaps there was a time when a
narrow minded individual with an
enlarged hump of bigotry could
publicly pose as a close friend to
criminals and exert the power given
him as the governor of a great state
to pardon wanton murderers but if
so, that time is passing and with it
goes Patterson, who as chief execu
tive for three years of Tennessee has
granted freedom to 1,026 criminals,
the most notorious of whom are the
Carmacks, father and son, who were
convicted of having shot hown a
United States senator.
Patterson says he has withdrawn
from the race as a candidate to suc
ceed himself as governor, because of
political-trickery. As a matter of
fact he is out of the race because an
outraged commonwealth wills it.
OLD LEADERS RETIRED.
Of the older members of the state
senate who failed to secure renomi
nation few have been more con
spicuous than F. H. Peterson of
Moorhead and C. A. Johnson of
Senator Peterson, who is in Be
midji at the present time, declares
it will be a relief to lay down the
cares with which he has found him
self burdened during the last ses
sions of the legislature. He has
served as a senator for eight years
and was a member of the sub-corn'
mittee which drew the omtrbus ap
Senator Johnson has also been in
the senate for four terms and had
the distinction of defeating the late
Governor John A. Johnson when he
sought re-election to the senate in
$1,250,000 W0HTH OF PIES.
Some genius of Spokane with a
taste for statistics has figured out
that the crop harvested OD com
mercial apple orchards in the state
of Washington this year would
mean about eight apples, in an
equal distribution, for every man,
woman and child in the United
States, accordling to the estimate
of the 1910 census.
The yield is placed at 6,500
carloads, which growers and buy
ers say is a conservative estimate.
There are 650 boxes ia a car and
the average box^coirtains 192
apples, making a
It is also figured that if'Ithe
apples harvested in the United
States this year were converted in
to pies, the army of bakers re
quired to do the work would turn
out 6,259,000,000 pies, which,
placed side by side, would make a
path almost 975,000 miles, or
enough to girdle the earth 39
times. The total weight of this
mountain of pastry, including
flour, lard and other ingredients,
is estimated at 9,250,000,000
pounds, while the total cost of the
pies, if sold at five cents a quarter,
is placed at $1,250,000,000.^
THE PRISON PAPER.
There are more than 650 news
papers published in the state of
Minnesota. The list includes every
thing from the welcome "weekly"
from the hand presses of hamlet or
village to the bulky batches of ads,
crimes and politics which daily pour
through the clattering machines in
But in all this ocean of printed
paper there is one little humble pub
lication which stands as a beacon
light to stir to their deepest depths
the emotions of all who read its
sparkling pages, unmarred by a
This unique publication is known
as the Prison Mirror. It is pub
lished from the state penitentiary
in Stillwater. It is_edited by a man
who wears a convict's garb its type
is set by fingers that have committed
crime and its presses respond to a
The pages are filled with good
things from men who, although pay
ing the penalty of the transgressor,
can pen, in their grated cells,
poetry, literary discussions, humor
ous compositions and bright news
Here is a sample of the sunshine
within the stone walls of that piti
"Teacher* Johnny, which is
right, a man lies easy or a man lies
easily? Pupil: 'Who's the man?"
Again, in the current issue, "G.
H." gives a graphic account of
"Life in Uncle Sam's Navy'' and "D.
M." in an article on "Sternness of
Military Demands" tells how a. sol
dier obeyed orders even to the point
of shooting his father.
On the ditorial page, made bright
by cheering comments an appro
priate poem and laughable column
under the heading "Yolly Ymglings,
by Yens Yenson,'' appears at the top
of the column the following:
The Mirror is a weekly paper published
in the Minnesota State Prison. It was
founded in 1887 by the prisoners and is
edited and managed by them. It aims to
be a home newspaper to encourage moral
and intellectual improvement among
the prisoners, to acquaint the public with
the true status of the prisoner dessemi
nate penological information and to aid
in dispelling that prejudice which has
ever been the bar sinister to a fallen
man's self-redemption. The paper is en
tirely dependent on the public for its finan
cial support. If at any time there shall
accrue a surplus of funds, the money will
be expended in the interests of the prison
And we can't quit without pro
ducing the following taken from the
Mirror's local page:
Samson Brown says when he gets
out he is going to invest in a ceaow
one that gives buttermilk.
"Quite a number of the local res
idents are anxiously waiting to be
struck by lightning by the State
Board of Pardons.
"Narrow-souled people are the
same as narrow-necked bottles
the less they have in them the more
noise they make in pouring it out."
Mr. Franklin at the Bar.
Among the state papers for the year
1536 may be read a letter from John
Bartelet to Henry VIIl.'s minister,
Thomas Cromwell, stating that in ac
cordance with the recent act the mayor
and aldermen had chosen Mr. Pryseley
to attend the English parliament as
the representative of Calais and* that
be had made certain arrangements
about his passage into England.
One Thomas Boyd was elected as bis
rolleague, and Calais continued to-send
P's to Westminster until. In the
reign of Mary, we lost the stronghold
we had held for over two centuries
This Is the only instance in England's
history of anything like colonial rep
resentation at Westminster unless In
deed,we reckon one or two exceptional
occasions when colonial grievances
have been voiced at the bar of the
house of commons, as they were so
brilliantly by Benjamin Franklin,
when Burke said the scene reminded
him of "a master examined by a par
cel of schoolboys."London News.

CANT "DOPE" BERG'S DEFEAT.
Thedefeat of Albert Berg, former secre
tary of state, demonstrates again the
vote-getting ability of A. Hanson.
Berg was picked to win. Mr. Berg started
out to put it into execution. He went
quite a way, but the job was too much
for him. Just how Hanson did it no one
seems to know, but there are the votes,
and Mr. Hanson will occupy his old seat
in the Senate next winter.St. Paul Dis

Chester MeKusick should be glad, per

ability to fill the office of county attorney
to the satisfaction of all.but others always
