Home Talent Efforts.
Home talent productions in any
line are worthy of support because
they develope a home boosting spirit,
if for no other reason. A good pro
duction creates a pardonable pride in
the city and what it is able to give
the way of entertainment. It is a
source of satisfaction both to those
who participate and to those who at
tend. Furthermore, they bring in
many outside visitors to the city.
About fifty young people of Be
midji, acting for the Episcopal
church are presenting a series of
vaudeville acts at the Brinkman to
night, and Tuesday and Wednesday
evenings. The only portion of the
gross revenue from the three even
ings which will not stay in Bemidji
is that which must go to outside
costumers. Support of the vaude
ville means support for Bemidji.
The Episcopal church has built a
home which is a credit to the city. It
is not yet paid for and the entertain
ment is being given to raise money
for the church building fund. Con
sequently, the vaudeville being pre
sented by the young people is worthy
of support for two reasons: first, the
money paid in for admission stays in
Bemidji and works for Bemidji sec
ondly the entertainments are
worthy of patronage on their own ac
count for those who have seen them
say that artistically they are first
Are Athletics Good?
The attendance at the high school
football game Saturday was confined
laTgely to the high school students
and young people of the city whose
school days have not been left far be
hind. The game is worthy of a larger
patronage. The game Saturday was
close, hard fought, and had many ex
citing moments. It was a battle of
two fairly matched teams of eleven
men each who fought for over an
hour to see which was the better.
High school athletics are worthy
of support of the older people of Be
midji for other reasons than that the
games are good. Athletics are not
participated in by a small group of
boys but during the year include
nearly all that are enrolled.
Athletics make the boys get out in
the fresh air for an hour or two
every evening it gives them exer
cise which tends to build up strong
healthy bodies it gives them
enough thinking to do to make their
brains and their bodies work to
gether in brief, athletics aim to
develope well rounded men.
The man who plays football can
no longer rely on brute strength.
The rules of the game have been so
changed in recent years that it takes
brains to play the game and only
brainy men can stay on a team.
Strength is a requisite, but there
must be a thinking machine to go
with it. The man who plays foot
ball today is taught to merge his
personality with those of ten others
so that a jcompact machine of
eleven parts is made. He is shown
that he is but a cog and that he
must work for the machine and not
for himself. For three months in
the year, he must subject himself
to Spartan discipline.
The things that football and
other athletic games are teaching
our high school boys are things
which can not be taught in the class
room. They must be drilled in on
the open field. They are things
that every man must learn before he
becomes the most useful citizen
possible and the younger they are
taught, (the better. But it takes
money to run athletics. It costs
railroad fare and hotel bills to
bring in teams or to take the Be
midji team away. This money can-l
not be raised by taxation and corned
in only through- admissions and 4
The Bemidji team will -.not pla$,
here Saturday, but those who are in
terested in the welfare of the com
ing young men of this city hope that
the next home game will see twice
as many spectators as were at the
fair grounds last Satu?day

HOW Til RESIST
Chronic Coughs and Colds.
Strong vigorous men and women
hardly ever catch cold it's only
when the system is run down and
vitality low that colds and coughs
get a foothold^ Jgp z*f*
Now isn't it reasonable that the
right way to cure a cough is to build
up your run down condition again?
Mrs.' Olivia Parham of East Dur
ham, N. C, says: "I took Vinol for
a chronic cough which had lasted
two years and the cough not only
disappeared, but it built up my
strength as well." _ Z*
The reason V4noi is so-effieaeious
in such cases is because it contains
in a delicious concentrated form all
the medicinal curative' elements of
cod liver oil, with tonic^ blood build
ing iron added.
Chronic coughs and colds yield to
Vinol because it builds up the weak
ened, run-down system.
You can get your money back
any time if Vinol does not do all we
say. Barker's Drug Store, Bemidji

A HARMLESS WAY TO
DARKEN THE HAIR
A Little Sage and Sulphur Makes
Gray Hair VanishA Remedy for
All Hair Troubles.
Who does not know the value of
Sage and Sulphur for keeping the
hair dark, soft and glossy and in good
condition? As a matter of fact, Sul
phur is a natural element of hair,
and a deficiency of it in the hair is
held my many scalp specialists to be
conneqted with loss of color and vi
tality of the hair- Unquestionably
there is no better remedy for hair
and scalp troubles, especially prema
ture grayness, than Sage and Sul
phur, if properly prepared.
The Wyetn Chemical Company of
New York put out an ideal prepara
tion of this kind, called Wyeth's Sage
and Sulphur Hair Remedy, in which
Sage and Sulphur are combined with
other valuable remedies for keeping
the hair and scalp in clean, healthy
If your hair is losing its color or
constantly coming out, or if you are
troubled with dandruff or dry, itchy
scalp, get a fifty cent bottle of Wy
eth's Sage and Sulphur from your
druggist, use it according to the sim
ple directions, and see what a differ
ence a few days' treatment will make
in the appearance of your hair.
All druggists sell it, under guaran
