Miss Humes has had some experi
ence as a director and in August had
charge of a week of vaudeville in
Cass Lake that drew a packed house
every night and netted the Commer
cial club a nice sum of money. About
thirty Bemidji people saw the final'
Cass Lake performance and decided
then that Bemidji had as much talent
as any other Minensota city and could
put on vaudeville also. The num
bers to be produced next week are
the-result of the resolution and a
large amount of Work.
The program for Monday evening

Owes Life to Hfa Horse.
Frank Tracy, of Wallingford, Conn.,
claims that his life was saved by his
horse Starlight. He went to Oak
dale tavern, three miles away, with
load of baggage and was so badly
chilled on the return that he fell in
an unconscious condition into hie
wagon. His horse, turning corners
with unerring accuracy, brought
Tracy to his place of business, where
aid was promptly afforded. After
working over him for two hours the
doctors pronounced him out of dan
ger. Tracy says the horse will never
have to haul another load. The horse
had the home instinct so many ani
mals have, and this led to the reliel

The dirt around the tree for ten feet

runs, and cinched the game for Bos

that action be taken fn the matter
at once. Mr. Steenerson had just
returned from a trip*hrough he res

that he believed a harbor was needed.
At the present time, deep draft
boatB cannot get into shore any where
and have to be loaded and unloaded
with lighters. It is proposed to
build a deep harbor at Redby so that
freight can_ be taken up on the Red
Lake road, transfered to boats in
the harbor and so taken across the
Settlers to the north and west of
the lakes have been buying in Thief
River Falls and say that they have a
fifty mile haul for their goods. It is
proposed to build a landing stage at
the mouth of the Tamarack river* and
goods bought in Bemidji or further
south will be taken up on the rail
road to Redby,. across the lakes by
boat to the Tamarack landing and
then inland to the setlements. The
haul by wagon will be cut down from
fifty to ten and-twenty miles.
.As soon as Redby harbor is com
plc ted, it is probable that other land
ing stages will be built so that set
tlers to the northeast can get their
goods he same way instead of hauling
overland from Kelliher as at present.
A smaller harbor and landing will be
built at the school and administra
tion points on Red Lake. A tele
phone line is now being built around

Chicago, Oct. 7.Receipts of pota
toes have been very heavy at Chicago
the past week and are heavy today,
but as the price has declined to 43c
we believe receipts will slack up as
farmers are getitng 20c in Wisconsin
and will not haul for this money.
There is a good call in Chicago for
some early Ohios. They would bring
about 40c today. Something real
fancy would bring more.
The Kansas City market will go
considerably lower in sympathy with
Chicago and we believe we could
handle Ohios at Chicago to better ad
vantage than at Kansas City.
We see no reason why. the price
should advance for some time to come
and would advise shippers to bill
their cars to Chicago rather than to

Wilber and Innees
The above market letter was re
ceived this morning by a Bemidji
potato shipper and indicates that
market for potatoes is growing weak
er. The Fitzsimmons-Baldwin Co.
paid 26c last week for potatoes but
today are offering. 22c for unsacked
and 25c for sacked. W. G. Schroeder
is allowing 30c for potatoes turned
in on acocunts but will not pay over
22c cash for unsacked potatoes. The
Chicago Record-Herald yesterday
quoted potatoes at 40c and a declin
ing market. The Herald quotation
would indicate a drop of three cents
from the price quoted the day before
by Wilber and Inness.
Bemidji potato shippers do not
agree with the statement made by
W. R. Mackenzie last week that the
price of potatoes will go high again
this winter. They point to the fact
that the market is steadily falling'
and that it will not get strong again
until the present supply in the pro
duce centers becomes low. Late
quotations from Chicago and Kansas
City dealers indicate that local ship
pers can pay little more than 20c
and be able to ship with any profit.
The freight from Bemidji to Chicago
on a car of potatoes amounts to from
fifteen to eighteen cents a bushel.
Local shippers say that the total
production for this year has been es
timated by the government as 280,-
000,000 bushels which figures are the
same as those in 1910. Last year
the crop was estimated at 180,000,-.?
000 bushels. Shippers say that al-~
lowing for a waste of 30.000,000
bushels due to rot, frost, etc., there
will still be left about thirty-five
per cent more potatoes than in 1911.
Reports from the country indicate
that many farmers are puting their
potatoes in the root cellars to hold
for a higher price. Shippers say that
this action is all right for a short
period but farmers should not hold
th*m too long, as the bottom will be
knocked out of the market if all un
a once. Many farmers held
potatoes last year for $1.50 a bushel
and rinally had to dump them when
they could have sold for from eighty
to ninety cents a bushel many times.
SCHOOL FUND IS INCREASED
Bei'trami county will receive $11,-
