The girls of Miss Eddy's cooking
classes in the High school again dem
on strated their ability to prepare
and serve a first class banquet when
they served one to the football team
and several guests on Tuesday night.
Their first attempt was at the time
the University farm train was here
in November and they were then as
sisted to a large extent by Miss
Eddy. The football banquet was
planned and prepared by the girls
with Miss Eddy as supervisor. It cer
tainly was a good banquet and the
girls have reason to feel as proud as
the boys are of them.
European Mail Closes December 9.
December 9 is the last day in
which Christmas packages for Eng
land and Northern European coun
tries can be mailed and delivered
abroad before Christmas. The mail
goes from here to Mmeapolis and
Assistant Postmaster Fosness says
that mail sent after December 10
cannot be delivered abroad before
Christmas. A large amount of mail
is sent annually from Bemidji to Ger
many and the Scandinavian coun
"All of this mail," said Mr. Fos-FUNERAL
nes in Minneapolis yesterday, "must
be placed in this postofflce by Decem
ber 10 at the latest. Even then there
will be some congestion. I would ad
vise every one who plans to send
mail abroad to do it now. There
may be stormy weather on the At
lantic, and that would delay mail to
a very great extent.
"There has not been a great deal
of Christmas mail, recognized as
such, mailed from Minneapolis so far.
There have been a larger number of
packages and parcels, but whether
they are Christmas gifts or not we
have no means of knowing.
"All mail to the Philippine islands
should have been mailed a couple of
weeks ago. It is too late now to send
mail across the Pacific in time for
Christmas. But there is still time to
get mail delivered in England and in
almost all European countries now.
The mail will be very heavy this year
and the public should help as much
as possible by mailing presents
Prisoners Earning Money.
Some time ago the legislature
passed an act through which prison
ers at Stillwater are able to earn
money while serving their sentences.
The work has been put on the piece
system, as far as possible, and the
earnings of the prisoners during the
past year were $40,000 according to
the annual report of Warden Wolfer
which has just been made public.
Mr. Wolfer says the law passed
four years ago has worked well. "It
has not only encouraged the prisoner
to make the most of his mental and
physical energies," says the warden,
"but it has also proved a great source
of comfort and support to his family,
if he has one. The law seems suffi
ciently elastic to meet all require
ments. We are making every effort
to establish an impartial piece sys
tem of earnings that will meet ap
proval of all industrious and well
The report shows that on July 31
there were 814 inmates of the pris
on, of whom 498 were single, 81 mar
ried without children, 126 married
and having children and 44 divorced.
The report deplores the escape of
Jerry McCarty and Peter Juhl, but
claims for Stillwater one of the best
records in the country for safekeep
ing of prisoners. Mr. Wolfer recom
mends a more stringent law covering
unlawful communication with con
victs, and the bringing into prison of
contraband articles, especially nar
cotics. "Narcotics in their various
forms are the cause of nearly every
serious prison insurrection," says the
The law for indeterminate sen
tences is declared to be working well
and no change is suggested. The net

no experience or literary excellence necessary. No "flowery

The demand for photoplays is practically unlimited. The
big film manufacturers are moving "heaven and earth" in their
atten ptsto get enough good plots to supply the ever increas-
ing demand. They are offeripg $1-00, and more, for single

Nearly all the big film companies, the buyers of photo-
plays, are located in or near NEW YORK CITY. Being
right on the spot, and'knowing at all times just what sort of
plots are wanted by the producers, our SALES DEPART-
MENT has a tremendous advantage over agencies situated in
We have received many letters from the big film manu-
facturers, such as VITAGRAPH, EDISON, ESSANAY,
LUBIN, SOLAX, IMP, REX, RELIANCE, CHAMPION,
COMET, MELIES, ETC., urging us to send photoplays to
them. We want more writers and we'll gladly teach you the
secrets of success.
We are selling photoplays written by people who
''never beforewrote a line for publication9'
Perhaps we can do the same for you. If you can think of
