Grookston Making Ready.
Crookston, Nov. 27. The third
annual convention of the Northern
Minnesota Development association
to be held in Crookston Thursday and
Friday, December 5 and 6, will be
the best convention ever held by the
association, and Crookston will do
All visitors will be banqueted at
the Crookston School of Agriculture
the first day by the business men of
Crookston, and a smoker will be giv
en later the same evening in the com
mercial club rooms.
It costs money to take care of such
a convention and it takes work to
prepare for it. The program which
has been prepared includes addresses
by such men as James J. Hill, Presi
dent George E. Vincent of the Uni
versity of Minnesota, Fred B. Snyder
of Minneapolis, G. G. Hartley of Du
luth, and a number of others.
The first afternoon session will be
held at the Crookston School of Agri
culture, where several of the build
ings will be dedicated. This is very
proper because this great school is
one of the most potent forces toward
a better development of Northern
Minnesota. The committees named
to handle the convention, and who
should be given every assistance by
other citizens, both in cash and work
when called upon, are as follows:

Arts and Crafts Idea.
We have all seea very attractive
bits of jewelry made from gold or sil
ver coins by having the background
space etched away, leaving only the
head and the encircling rim with a few
little connecting bars. The same idea
can be carried cut by using for the
head a little silhouette portrait, made
by posing the subject against a bright
sky through a window in a room, dark
ened all except that one window, then
taking a snapshot. A camera taking a
picture two inches by three is large
enough and the whole head should be
less than an inch. Take several pic
tures until a good outline is obtained.

In silver would be a beautiful scarf pin.
For such a pin have only the head
without an encircling rim. A mother's
baby's head in gold would make a
pendant that would be a great treas

BIRD THAT KEEPS A SLAVS
Frigate-Bird Forces the Booby-Bird
to Supply Fish for His
The booby-bird never leaves the
broad seas, where his harsh cry is
heard from the Hebrides to the
Faroes and from the cliffs of Scot
land to the coast of Norway. He re
vels in the storms and screams above
the roar of the sea. The booby has
green feet, yellow eyes, and a defiant
head covered with a yellow cap Each
of its wings is three feet long and its
beak is so stiff and so strong that
it fears no enemy but the frigate-bird.
The frigate-bird is the terror of the
birds of the sea, though he ignores
all but the booby. Owing to the
breadth of his wings, the frigate can
not fish he Is forced to remain in
the air. But as he cannot get fish
in the air, and as he requires fish
for his nourishment, he presses the
booby into his service. When hungry
he swoops down upon the booby and
gives it a vigorous thrust in its throat,
Then the booby's mouth opens and
the fish caught in it drops out. The
frigate has only to give one peck at
the booby's throat to get his dinner.
It happens occasionally that the
booby attacked by the frigate has
nothing in its mouth. When the fri
gate pecks in vain, he belabors his
slave with his beak and drives him,
bruised and terrified, into the sea to
Life Without Microbes.
The oft-debated question as to
whether there can be life without mi
crobes is held to have been solved by
M. Michel Cohendy of the Pasteur in
stitute of Paris, who has reared live
chickens in an enclosed space which
was quite free from microbes. By the
use of an ingenious apparatus for
hatching the chickens and then rais
ing them for a certain time, he was
able to produce animals which did not
contain any microbes, and they were
able to live, and appeared to be as
healthy as usual. His apparatus
served in the first place as an incu
bator for hatching the eggs and then
as a chamber where the chickens are
able to live as long as may be de
sired. M. Cohendy kept the chickens
in his apparatus for 45 days, and the
contents of their digestive organs,
blood and so on, were found to be free
from microbes. Those that were kept
alive did not seem to suffer at all from
being transferred to the germ-laden
atmosphere, for they grew up success
Machine to Write Music.
A German musician has invented
a machine which, he states, automatic
ally registers the notes emitted by
the piano. The new machine has the
same object as one invented by an
Italian and used by Mascagni in writ
ing his operas, but it is a larger in
strument and is operated by elec
tricity. Into the machine is inserted
a roll of paper, and the composer
seats himself before the piano and
executes the composition that he de
sires to give to the public. The ma
chine faithfully registers every note
produced, so that the musician does
not have to depend upon his memory.
Herons Most Affectionate Birds.
