The Skating Rink.
During the past week many people
have come to the editor and asked
why the Pioneer did not more forcib
ly advocate a skating rink for Be
midji. Bemidji can have such a skat
ing ring if the people show that they
want it.. It lies within the power of
the street committee of the council,
which is composed of John Moberg,
Tom Smart and Joe Bisiar, to order
the street commissioner to prepare
and maintain such a rink. To make
a good rink will take the time of a
man and one horse for half a day
and should not cost over $2.25. In
case of more snow, it can be pushed
back again. The school children
could keep such a rink clean once
the most of the snow pushed off. If
the Bemidji skatersboth children
and adultswish a rink, the way to
get it is to demand it oT their rep
resentatives on the city council. The
street committee has the power and
the cost is not prohibitive.
A Council of Defense.
In his annual report to congress,
which was submitted today, George
von L. Meyer, secretary of the navy,
makes the following recommenda
tion:
"What the navy is striving for is
to get the highest possible efficiency
and preparedness for war. It is felt
that a council of national defense
will be an additional benefit to the
navy and to the nation. It will in a
way be a vehicle between the depart
ment and congress.
"In order to have success, there
must be efficiency. To have effi
ciency, there must be a definite pol-
icy,1
to bring about a definite policy,
there must be co-operation and co-or
dination of Congress, the army, and
the navy. To obtain this co-opera
tion, there must be an intelligent un
derstanding between the legislative
and the executive authorities.
"The proposed council of national
defense should be made up of two
cabinet officers, four senators, four
congressmen, two army officers, and
two navy officers. It would seem that
this council would tend toward the
result in a better understanding and
in a definite policy.
"The passage of a bill creating the
council of national defense is strong
ly urged, as the establishment of this
council will have far reaching and
beneficial effects."
To a layman this seems like an ex
cellent suggestion and is at least
worthy of serious consideration.
The Commission Form.
Many Bemidji people have long
been interested in the commission
form of government and have been
watching closely the fight just made
in Duluth. Duluth adopted the com
mission plan by a vote of 5,524 to
3,386 and henceforth the cumber
some Ward system will be but a mem
ory in that city.
The .commission form of govern
ment has' undergone many changes
since it was first tried out in Galves
ton and Des Moines but the absic
principal of concentration of author
ity and responsibility remains. Be
midji needs such a form of govern
ment and needs it badly. This city
has a big debt and cannot afford to
waste money through the many leak
ages which are found in the ward
systems. Any person who has attend
ed the meetings of the city council
month after month will have this fact
firmly impressed upon them.
A movement has already been start
ed here for a special election to be
held next spring on the commission
form. But before such an election
can be held, it will be necessary to
have a charter commission appointed
and a charter drawn up. All of this
takes time so that it will be many
months before Bemidji can actually
vote on a charter even if the work
is started now. But this city needs
a simpler government perhaps more
than even larger ones. It will come
in time and it will be no mistake fori tented.Adv.
citizens to start posting themselves
on the commission plan and what it
means.
Under the Duluth charter ward
lines are eliminated and the five com
missioners will be elected at large.
One commissioner will be the mayor,
who will preside at the meetings of
the commission. The city govern
ment will be divided into four depart
ments, as follows: Department of
public affairs, department of finance,
department of public works, and de
partment of public utilities. Each
commissioner will be paid an annual
salary of $4,000, and will be requir
ed to give all of his time to the gov
ernment of the city The duties of
the commissioners will be assigned
them at the first meeting after the
election.
Nominations for office must be
made by petition, consisting of at
least fifty individual certificates. No
elector may sign more certificates
than there are offices to be filled. The
petitions must be filed with the city
clerk not earlier than forty and not
later than thirty days before the elec
tion. The person nominated must
file an acceptance within twenty days
before the date of the election, mak
ing affidavit that he is not candidate
of any political party, thus insuring
the non-partizanship of the elections.

There will be no primary election
powderon the cost of living.
Yet it is a leakage that can easily
be stopped if the housewife will only
pay a little more attention to the
choice of her baking powder Some
think there is economy in buying
the cheap "big can" baking powders
These baking powders are not al
ways uniform, and sometimes pro
duce failures in the baking, and the
result is that more is lost in one or
two spoiled bakings than you spend
on baking powder in the whole year.
The cheap "big can" baking powders
should be avoided
On the other hand, how many
housewives feel that a baking pow
der is no value unless they pay 50
cents a pound for itthe price
charged for the high-priced "trust"
brands. This is a mistake, the best
baking powder that can be made can
be sold for 25c per pound if the man
ufacturer is satisfied with a reason
able profit. There is one brand on
the market that meets these require
ments. It is CALUMET BAKING
POWDER, recommended by leading
physicians and chemists used in
millions of homes, and given the
Highest Awards at the World's Pure
Food Exposition, Chicago, 111., and
Paris Exposition, France, 1912.
and the single election will be on the traces of it out of the system quick-
preferential plan, preventing the
election of minortiy candidates. The
charter includes the initiative, the
referendum and the recall. It gives
the commission the right to make
public improvements if the commis
sioners think best to do so. Public
improvements may be initiated by
the commission, but may be protested
by twenty-five per cent of the prop
erty owners owning twenty-five per
cent of the property, and if protested
the work cannot be done. The char
ter has many other features which
allow the transaction of the city's
business without red tape and in a
businesslike manner.

A HARMLESS WAY TO
DARKEN THE HAIR
A Little Sage and Sulphur Hakes
Gray Hair VanishA Remedy for
All Hair Troubles.
Who does not know the valne 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
connected 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 Wyeth 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
condition.
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
tee that the money will be refunded
if the remedy is not exactly as repre-
Lies in That Cough and Weak, Worn
Out Condition.
Grippe, pleurisy, pneumonia, these
are greatly to be feared at this time
of the year.
To prevent grippe from being fol
lowed by either pleurisy or pneumon
ia, it is important to drive the last
ly
Our advice is to take Vinol, our
delicious cod liver and iron prepara
tion without oil, and get your
strength and vitality back quickly.
Mrs. A. A. Crabill of Strasburg,
Va., says: "Grippe left me weak, run
down and with a severe cough from
which I suffered four years. I tried
different remedies, but nothing seem
ed to do me any good until I took Vi
nol, from which I received great ben
efit. My cough is almost entirely
gone, and I am strong and well again
and I am glad to recommend Vinol to
others who suffer as I did."
Try Vinol with the certainty that
if it does not benefit you we will give
back your money. Barker's Drug
