THE BEMIDJI DAILY PIONEER
FISH INDUSTRY VALUABLE.
Cox Says Red Lake Indians Should
Conserve This Resource.
Speaking of the Red Lake Indian
reservation, William T. Cox, who had
just returned from an overland trip,
said in the St. Paul Pioneer Press:
"Red Lake deserves to be much
better known than it is. With the
exception of Lake Michigan, it is the
largest body of fresh water wholly
within the United States. It covers
an area of nearly 400 square miles.
"Red lake is remarkable in that
despite its immense size, it contains
no islands, and that its shore is
practically a continuous sand beach.
The deepest portions of the lake are
only about 35 to 40 feet, but the bot
tom is so uniform that a sail boat
or steamer can take a straight coarse
without danger of striking reefs or
sand bars. The surrounding country
even in topography and breezes on
the lake are dependable so that this
splendid body of water offers per
haps the best opportunity in the
world for yacht racing, ice-boat rac
ing and similar sports.
"Red lake has no muscallonge but
is well supplied with white fish, pike
and other food fishes. The fishing
Perhaps this is well since it will now
be possible, owing to an interest in
conservation, to provide for proper
supervision of the fisheries when
they are developed to see that fa
vorable conditions are maintained for
the reproduction of the fish and con
tinuance of the industry. It would
be much more sensible for the gov
ernment to encourage a conservative
development of the fisheries of Red
lake and thus lead the 1,200 Indians
living on its shores to become self
supporting through a line of work
for which they are suited than to
spend untold sums trying to make
farmers of them.
"The fish, of Red lake are worth far
more to the Indians, if the govern
ment only thought so, than all the
pine on the reservation and all the
land which may ever be alloted to
them. The present reservation in
cludes the country on the south and
west sides of the lake, together with
the pine covered peninsula and
braces about 400,000 acres."

CARE OF RUGS AND CARPETS
Their Usefulness May Easily Be Short*
ened by Careless Handling When
No matter what the size or quality
of a rug, it is a mistake to shake it
by the end to beat it free from dust.
The force required to grasp it securely
and the sharp snap and jerks are ruin
ous to the binding and fringe.
A rug sometimes becomes badly
creased. To remedy this, turn it up
side down and wet the crease with a
moistened broom until the rug is quite
wet. Stretch the rug tight and let it
remain over night, after tacking it
with tinned tacks, which do not rust.
Here is a good way to clean carpets
Without taking them upit will also
clean rugs thoroughly: Sprinkle them
generously with yellow cornmeal that
has been well dampened in weak am
monia water. Sweep off in a few min
utes and you will be surprised to see
the clean and bright appearance of
your carpets and rugs.
Should you accidentally spill oil or
soot on your carpet, you can extract
all the oil by covering the spot with
buckwheat flour, allowing it to remain
several hours before sweeping. Repeat
again if not all removed by first appli
cation. To get rid of the soot, you
will need to spread some coarse salt
thickly over the spot. Let it remain
a short time and when swept off youFOR
will find the spot removed. This rem
edy will not hurt the finest carpet.
When ink is spilled on carpets or
rugs it should be covered immediate,
ly with salt, and keep putting on salt
until there is no sign of the Ink
through the salt, let It remain over
night, and when you sweep it off next
morning there will be no sign of the
Ink left on the carpet.
When taking up carpets there is no
necessity for the clouds of dust that
some women let loose in the air by
improper management.. If paper was
laid under the carpet the work is eas
ily done. After drawing all of the
tacks without turning up even a cor
ner of the carpet, begin at one end oi
the room, ind with an assistant, care
fully roll the carpet from one end to
the other. Lift it carefully and carry
it to the clothes line. Draw the pa
pers, with the dust on them, carefully
together, placing them on top of each
other until all are in a pile. Fold
them over to prevent the dust scatter
ing offr and carry them outdoors to be
burned. Sprinkle the floor with cold
water and sweep up, then wash with
soap suds, and the task is accomplish
ed with no dust to settle on the walls.
He Speaks Twenty-Three Languages.
Sir Charles Elliot, the newly ap
pointed principal of Hong Kong uni
versity, who speaks 23 languages, may
probably hold the record as a linguist
In these degenerate days. But in the
past he would hot have borne off the
belt so easily. There was Elihu Bur

who whilst working as an apprentice
at the forge taught himself French/
Latin, German, Italian, Greek and He
brew. During early manhood he mas
tered Sanskrit, Syriac, Arabic, Norse,
Spanish, Dutch, Polish, Bohemian and
Turkish then turning his attention to
minor languages and dialects, perse
