Two Good Men Named.
That the voters of the Fourth and
Fifth districts made no mistake in
selecting as their representatives on
the county board, Messrs. Lennon and
Thompson, is self-evident. Their work
at the first session of the board has
already demonstrated that they are
men truly representative. They are
men of conviction, courage, judgment
and ability. They are men whoter
work for their constituents and at
all times have the interest of the
county at heart. They are men who
consider service to the people their
just duty. They believe in the econ
omical distribution of the county's
funds and to secure for it all that the
dollar will buy. Both are thorough,
well trained business men, and will
command the highest respect of the
citizens of their county and other
members of the board.
England to Own Phones.
A recent dispatch from England
would indicate that the British are
making more advancement in govern
ment ownership of public utilities
than are the United States. Following
is the dispatch:
The British government is to pay
to the National Telephone company
of the United Kingdom the sum of
$62,576,320 for its property, accord
ing to a decision reached by the rail
way and canal commission sitting as
a court of arbitration.
The whole of the telephone system
in the British isles passed into the
hands of the state on Jan. 1,
The National Telephone company ori
ginally asked $105,000,000 for its in
terest, but during the seventy-three
day trial just ended this claim was
reduced by many millions.
It had been expected by stock ex
change experts, however, that the
company would receive from $80,-
000,000 to $90,000,000. The stock
of the company immediately upon
announcement of the award fell from
141 to 109.
The arbitration has been one of the
most important in the history of the
During the trial the parties came
to an agreement as to the cost of the
plant, the sum being $51,668,625.
The court then had to decide the
percentages which should properly
be- added to that sum and also the
in his lecture in Grand Forks on
Monday night, V. Stefanson, arctic
explorer, brought out some side
lights on Eskimo life which may be
interesting to Bemidji readers. The
following paragraphs are taken from
the Grand Forks Herald:
A trip of 400 miles to get some
matches'was one of, the many inter
esting experiences in the far north
which were related by V. Stefansson,
the now famous Arctic explorer, in
his lecture at the university last
night. It took him all summer to get
to a store, he said, and then he had
to spend the winter in Alaska: be
cause it was too cold to return. This
trip alone cost, the party $4,000 and
a lot of valuable time.
Another interesting thing that the
lecturer spoke of was the agriculture
tnat is carried on up here. Most peo
ple have the idea that there is noth
ing but hardship and cold there, but
Mr. Stefansson stated that grain and
potatoes are grown as far as 1,800
miles north of Edmonton.: In the
summer time the thermometer goes
as high as 105 degrees above zero and
In the winter it never falls much
.lower than 50 below. The speaker
^claims that the winter there is much
more welcome there than the summer
on account of the mosquitoes which
re more'numerous and troublesome

THE BEST GROCERIES

than can possibly be imagined by
people here in the United States.
One oi the most important results
of this expedition was the pushing of
tne tree line much farther north.
Many scientists claimed that there
were no trees nearer the Arctic ocean
but Mr. Stefansson found them grow
ing witain ten miles of the*Polar sea.
In the talk last night the speaker
gave some very interesting facts
regarding the religion of the natives.
Christianity has only been prevalent
there for a few years, and the natives
have not yet learned why they do cer
tain things, but hey are very earnest
in their beliefs. They do not, how
ever, go far enough in some cases,
and' too far in others. Their religion
is practically composed of a number
of prohibitions, and if they refrain
'from one thing that is bad, they do
something else that is just as bad, but
they do not know it. For instance,
the missionaries told them, that it is
wrong to use their fish nets on Sun
day, but nothing was said about the
use of hooks, and the. natives fish
with nets' during the week and usescience
hooks on Sunday.
GRAY HAIR TURNS ITS NATURAL COLOR
AFTER APPLYING A LITTLE SAGE TEA
Almost every one knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly com
pounded, brings back the natural col
or and lustre to the hair when fad
ed, streaked or gray also cures dand
ruff, itching scalp and stops falling
hair. Years ago the only way to get
this mixture was to make it at home,
which is mussy and troublesome.
Nowadays skilled chemists do this
oetter than ourselves. By asking at
any drug store for the ready-to-use
productcalled "Wyeth's Sage and
Hair Remedy"you will get
a large bott for about fifty cents.

HOW AN INDIANA GIRL
Got Strong and Well Again at Small
Miss Alta Abel, of West Baden,
Ind., says: "1 was a complete wreck,
always tired, worn out and nervous.'
I, had to spend about one-third of my
time in bed and my life was not
worth living. Vinol, your delicious
cod liver ad iron tonic was recom
mended, and it has done me more
good than all the medicine I ever
took in my life. That nervous and
tired feeling is all gone. I have
gained in health, flesh and strength,
until I feel like another person."
Vinol is the most efficient strength
creator for such women. It is the
medicinal elements of the cod's livers
contained in vinol aided by the blood
making and strengthening properties
of tonic iron which makes it so far
superior to all other tonics to build
up health and strength for weak,
tired, ailing women. It contains no
oil a.n has a delicious taste.
We give back your money if Vinol
does not do all that we claim. Bar

was freely revised and given plenty
of local color. It abounded in whole
some fun and frolic, that kept the
audience busy looking, listening and
laughing, and yet beneath it all
some useful lessons could be read
with the mind's eye.
There was good music in plenty.
Interspersed with the play were

it's usually too sticky, go insist upon
getting "Wyeth's" which can be der
pended upon to restore natural color
and beauty to the hair and is the best
remedy for dandruff, dry, feverish,
itchy scalp and to stop falling hair.
Folks like "Wyeth's Sage and Sul
phur" because no" one can possibly
tell that you darkened your hair, as
it does it so naturally and evenly,
says a well-known downtown -drug
gist. You dampen a sponge or soft
brush and draw it through your hair,
taking one small strand at a time.
This requires but a few moments, by
morning the gray hair disappears
and after another application or two
is restored to its natural color and
looks even more beautiful and glossy
