Fire Drills Needed.
Many Bemidji mothers are fearing
that some day there may be a catas
trophe at the Central school build
ing due to the fact that it is a fire
trap and crowded with 600 children.
They are pointing to the fact that
there have been no fire drills this
year and that few were held last
year. They fear a repetition of the
Fire drills are too important to be
forgotten in the rush of school work.
Every year a new set of pupils come
in to take the places of those who go
out. Those who remain go to dif
ferent rooms and the whole com
plexion of the school changes. Fire
drills should be so familiar to the
pupils that the ringing of the alarm
at any time during the day would
be taken to mean that it was only
a drillan attitude of mind which
has more than once prevented panic
in cases of real fire.
The Central school has several
different exits but the children
should be so trained that they will
know that certain signals mean that
they are to concentrate on one point.
Many times one or more exits are
cut off by fire. Little children are
easily excitable. Frequent fire drills
will take away the novelty and so
reduce the possibility of panic in
case of actual fire.
At the High school, conditions are
about the same Both stairways
would be cut off in case of a hot fire
in the manual training room which
had broken or exploded through the
walls In such a case the school
would have to be emptied from the
second story by way of the fire es
cape Fire drills are like fire in
surance It sometimes take a disas
ter to force the realization of their
value The Pioneer is no calamity
howler but it believes the drills
should be started at once and made
Gilman Running Again
A Gilman, former governor of
Minnesota, is in the race for the
sta*e legislature from the St Cloud
district and reports from below are
to the effect that he is putting up a
strong fight Gilman is eighty years
old, and was not only governor but
represented his district in the state
legislature hve successive times, once
being speaker of the house His peo
ple wanted him back in 1876 and it
looks as though they wanted him
Gilman is the man who is respons
ible lor the network of railroads
which cover Northern Minnesota
through his work in the old legis
latures. At eighty he appears hale
and hearty and it more than a pos
sibility that he will be sent back to
A Clean Cut Issue.
Some time ago the city of Minne
apolis had passed a law by which
the election of the mayor is put on
a non-partisan basis. All candi
dates were to enter the primaries
and two were to be selected who
were to run on the general ballot.
In this way it was understood that
the mayor who would finally be
elected would be the choice of a
majority of the people and three and
four cornered fights would be athing
of the past.
After the primary, however, it
was found that the Socialists had
taken no part in the campaign and
had not endeavored to win one of
the nominations. It also so happen
ed that two Republicans won the
two nominations and Gould and Nye
were to fight it out next Tuesday
But some time ago the Socialists
got out petitions and nominated
Thomas Van Lear, the man who
came so near to winning the elec
tion two years ago, and the fight
changed from two to three corners.
It was feared that the Socialist
candidate might win if the other
two split the opposition vote between
them so it was decided that either
Gould or Nye should withdraw. As
Gould received less votes in the pri
mary than Nye, he withdrew on
Tuesday in Nye's favor and the race
is now a clean cut one for or against
Socialism. Mr. Nye claims that the
Socialists were unfair not to enter
the primary Mr. Van Lear claims
that the non partisan election is a
ruse by the "bosses" to cheat the
The outcome of the election will
not only be closely watched in the
twin cities but throughout the state

Yield to Vinol.
The medical profession does not
believe that consumption is inherit
ed, but a person may inherit a weak
ness or tendency to that disease.
A prominent citizen of Evans
ville, Ind., writes: "I was ill for five
months with a pulmonary trouble,
and had the best of doctors I had
hemorrhages and was in a very bad
way. Through the advice of a friend
I tried Vinol, and I feel that it sav
ed my life. It is all you recommend
it to be. I believe it is the greatest
medicine on earth. I have advised
others to try Vinol, and they have
had the same results." (Name fur
nished on request.)
Vinol soothes and heals the in
flamed surfaces and allays the cough,
Vinol creates an appetite, strength
ens the digestive organs and gives
the patient strength to throw off in
cipient pulmonary diseases.
Try a bottle of Vinol with the un
derstanding that your money will be
returned if it does not help you.
