Smoky Wood, with a gray day to
help him out, was all there, with a
margin to spare. Tesreau was good
but not enough so to cope with the
marvel. Wood's effort was unques
tionably a big factor, but no small
share of the credit for the win must
go to a ball playing centipede by the
name of Heinie Wagner.

The count was three to one and
but for Wagner's almost superhuman
work, the Giant attack would have
left a different story to be written of
Wood's day's efforts.
Great was the Mackian infield last
fall, buit it was never within reach of
Boston's great quartette yesterday.
The Giants hammered Wood for
nine hits and but for Wagner and
Yerkes would have run the count up
to thirteen and driven across at least
three more runs and possibly four.
Both teams played great ball and

"Bemidji looks good to me," said
Mr. Howard, "and this undertaking
means co-operation. The paper can-
not do it all, we must have the co-op-
eration of the advertisers as well as
the reading public. If we work well
together, I will guarantee as to satis-
fying results, both from the newspa-
per's angle and the advertiser's and
reader's view point.. Bemidji now
has a good daily paper better than
any published in a city of this size
in the state.. By working together
we can produce still a better paper.
For the benefit of it's advertisers
and readers, the Pioneer has been

EGGS ARE SCARCE.
In speaking of the egg market,
K. K. Roe said:
"Eggs 'have been scarce for the
past few weeks, but we are getting
in a good supply now. On our first
delivery this morning nearly every
order contained eggs." If eggs are
already scarce at this season of the
year, it is probable that they will be
higher than ever this winter.

Pay for What You See.
Theaters in Havana, according to an
xohange, have a system by which pa
trons pay for a seat for one act, and, if
pleased, pay for another act,- and so
on to the end of the performance. By
this method a playgoer may keep on
trying different theaters till he finds a
play to his liking, and spend for his
various "samples" only the price that
he would pay^for one ticket, according
to our plan.

A i ^ANOTHER BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT
The difference between a dead town and alive town is
the difference between dead merchants and live mer-
chants. Some merchants are so dead or free from enter-
prise that it takes sizzling hot thrusts to awaken enough
life in them to even penetrate the outermost rim of busi-
ness progress. They will sijb around endeavoring to catch
trade that comesfbo town without offering inducements to
draw business,, j^jrtell tjte public j^at they do not ad-
vertise in th^newspapers but give their trade the benefit
of the little money they might spend in advertising by
giving them more for their money than the advertiser
which they know is a falsehood. The advertiser always
gives more and better goods for the money than the mer-
chant who doesn't advertise, for the advertiser's goods are
turned quicker and are always new and up-to-date. Be-
sides the advertiser is the town boomer, while the non-ad
vertiser is the town sponger. The advertiser, through
the medium of his ads, is reaching out and bringing new
people to town to trade and is thus both directly and in-
directly advertising the town. There is a way in which
every person trading in this town can help the town and
that is to encourage enterprise by patronizing the mer-
chant- who does advertise. That's one way to boom a
town that should have our admiration.
i~ This is the first of a series of articles prepared for
the merchant who wants a better business. Our aim is
to be of service to the enterprising merchant.

Full of ginger and "pep", the Thief
River Falls football team arrived in
the city at 10 a. m. this morning
and this afternon met the Bemidji
high school team at the fair grounds
A bright sun early this morning
dried the frost off the field so that
the men had firm footing. Cloudy
skies with a cool breeze made the day
ideal for fotoball.
The game was started promptly at
2 p. m~ so that the Thief River team
could catch the Soo train for home.
Both teams arrived on the grounds
shortly before 2 o'clock and were
greeted by cheers from the high
school students and other spectators
gathered on the side lines.
The Bemidji boys warmed up fast
and surprised the crowd by the speed
with which they ran through their^
signals. Thief River was not as fasjt
but the team as a whole looked'
heavier and able to give Bemidji a
good game. Both teams lined up full'
of confidence at the first whistle of
:the referee, ^-^^v^^^^^^^^s^r
Bemidji was somew^t 'weakened^
on the line by the absence of John
son who was forced 'to the second,
team because of being low in his
studies. Graham missed several
nights of practice and Jim Sulivan
was not out Friday night. Klein rwas
tried out for Johnson's place, but the
line was shifted in practice so that
Elletson could play there if needed.
Stanton was given practice in
both center and left half yesterday so
that the team this afternoon was able
to shift as needed. Captain Bailey
did not uncork all of his dazzlers as
he is saving a good assortment of
plays for Grand Rapids. The play
today was a succession of line
bucks, cross bucks and a few for
At 5 o'clock this afternoon, the
girls of the high school will serve a
home cooked supper in the city hall
in order to raise funds for he athletic
association. The association had fif
teen cents in the treasury when the
game was started today and de
pends on the receipts from this game
and the supper tonight to pay the ex
penses of the Thief River Falls team
and leave a balance in the treasury.
Many high school students and sev
oral members of the faculty are plan
ning to accompany the team when it
goes to Grand Rapids a week from
today. The team will leave here at
noon and will play shortly after its
arrived in Grand Rapids.
