The County Printing.
The Bemidji Pioneer has been des
ignated by the county commissioners
as the official paper of-Beltrami coun
ty. The contract for the legal print
ing was let at the first meeting of the
board and calls for the regular legal
The bid put in by the Pioneer was
a joint bid of every legal paper in the
county. Under this bid, the Pioneer
is the official paper and will set up
and print such matter as the commis
sioners' proceedings, tax list, finan
cial statement, etc., but will furnish
supplements containing the same
matter to each of the legal newspa
The papers to which the Pioneer
will furnish supplements are the
Kelliher Journal, Bemidji Sentinel,
Blackduck American, Baudette Reg
ion and Spooner News. The plan as
adopted by the county commissioners
was hit upon as the only way in
which all of the people of the county
could be treated the same in the mat
ter of reading the official news. Last
year the printing was given the Bau
dette Region and people in this end
of the county had to subscribe to a
paper in which they had little inter
est in order to get the official pro
ceedings. A few years ago, the peo
ple in the north end of the county
had to take a second paper.
Under the contract as let by thecourtesy,
commissioners, every person in Bel
trami county who takes any one of
the legal paperswhich is one that
has been published for at least fifty
two consecutive weekswill be able
to read the official notices of the
county. By letting such a contract,
the commissioners have put them
selves squarely on record as in favor
of the widest publicity possible for
the proceedings of their board.
Good Roads and Land Values.
Good roads and high land values
go hand in hand. The farmer who
lives in the backwoods and has to
travel over stumps and through mud
holes in order to wend his weary way
to market cannot get much for his
land and after he has brought it to a
state of cultivation. On the other
hand, once the roads have been put
into such a condition that hauling is
not difficult, his land has by that fact
increased in value.
"Good roads and good land values
are brother and sister," said a Be
midji man today. "They go hand in
hand. A fellow with a farm fifteen
miles out of town but with a nice
turnpike road to it need not worry.
But if he can't get his produce to the
market, the best land in the world is
worth nothing to him."
There is the case in a paragraph.
Northern Minnesota is vitally inter
ested in the matter of good roads be
cause we know that we have as good
land as there is in the country. It
needs only development to put this
section of the state in the front rank
for bread, butter and meat producing.
The Elwell law and the Dunn amend
men are helping put good roads
through the north country. Now if
the legislature will appropriate to
each county an amount equal to a
road tax on the state land which is
being held for sale in that county,
the good work will go much faster.
A Proper Step.
Melvin Stainbrook has placed on
his farm four thoroughbred Oxford
ewes as the foundation stock for his
flock of sheep. These ewes are regis
tered, all are prize winners and have
been bred to a thoroughbred ram.
Their offspring will be as good as
themselves and the four with the
lambs which will come next spring
will make a first class foundation
Mr. Stainbrook's initial investment
is about $100 as the ewes cost about
laid down in Bemidji.
They are good sheep and will return
him. their value many times over. He
is taking a step in the right direction
by getting first class stock to put on

return is much greater.
The Good Salesman's Greed.
I believe in the goods I am selling,
in the firm I am working for, and in
my ability to get "results." I believe
that honest goods can be sold to hon
est men by honest methods. I believe
in working not waiting, in laughing
not weeping, in boosting not knock
ing and in the pleasure of selling
goods. I believe that a man gets
what he goes after, that one order to
day is worth two tomorrow and that
no man is down-and-out until he has
lost faith in himself.
I believe in today, and the work I
am doing, in tomorrow and the work
I hope to do and in the sure reward
which the future holds. I believe in
in kindness, in generosity,
in good cheer, in friendship and hon
est competition. I believe there is an
order somewhere for every man ready
to take one. I believe I'm ready
