Selection of Pood for Workman's
Noon Meal Important, Says Mrs.

"The Worker's Noon Lunch," is
'.no subject discussed in the fourth
of the "High Cost of Living" series
which is being prepared by Mrs. L.
P. Lamoreaux for readers of the Pio
neer. The article is interesting and
offers many valuable suggestions as
have previous ones.
Mrs. Lamoreaux says:
The Worker's Noon Lunch.
"The 'dinner pail' should be pre
pared from the standpoint of whole
someness and attractiveness and on
ly those foods which are nutritious
should be even considered. The se
lection of food to be served cold gen
erally requires more care than that
which is intended to be eaten hot.
An out-of-door laborer requires
heavy, bulky food, such as baked
bean sandwiches, meats of all kinds,
cheese, eggs, boiled, deviled or in
salad small cans of sardines, dough
nuts and cookies, particularly oat
meal, ginger bread and cinnamon
rolls. Those doing indoor work
atoould have lighter food, but none
lie less nourishing, and occasionally
introducing relishes, light cookies,
sweets and plenty of juicy fruit.
"The lunch box or dinner pail
tould appear as attractive as possi
\tie without being too 'dainty.' Food
packed iti carelessly never induces a
!#:rt appet'te, and food that can
rai hi easily packed .should not be
uitpd, in ordfjr to avoid 'mussiness.'
Use plenty of oiled paper to keep the
.sandwiches and cake fresh and moist.
The.additional use of a thermos bot
te. or a thermos lunch box is much
t be desired for cold winter days
when men need a warm drink with
tfeoir cold victuals.
Small Pie is Better.
"If pie is packed, it is better to
make a small individual pie and leave
i in the pie tin. Most authorities
d* not advocate the use of pie with
a cold lunch though, both on account
of its indigestibility and the fact that
it is so difficult to pack. When pos
sible always use some kind of calces
or cookies instead. Leave the crusts
o the bread and cut it quite thick,
using plenty of moist filling for the
"Try frosting the cookies or some
graham crackers for a little variety.
Nuts and seeded raisins are always
a good addition and so are candies,
sweet chocolate, figs and dates, as

*d can take the place of so much
pie. For a change, put some hot soup
or broth in the thermos bottle and
add few white crackers to the
lunch. P.e careful in packing bana
nas as they are the most difficult
fruit to carry in a dinner pail.
Leather Pail Tabooed.
"When possible, use a tin or en-
:.*iel iai in preference to a leather
i ox, as it can be scalded and aired

afford it, use a fresh pasteboard box

There is perhaps no northern Min

afc.a more rapid rate than is that of
Nebish, twenty miles north of this
city, and during the past year no
less than forty families have taken up
their future homes in that vicinity.
For this great influx one man is
to a great degree responsible, being
G. E. Brinegar, general agent for the
Nebish Land company, which owns
considerable property in that coun
try. He began his northern Minne

"I have shown the land to more
than forty men," said Mr. Brinegar
while in Bemidji. "With the excep
tion of two, every one bought, many
of them later doubling their orders
when they realized the value of the
property. Nearly all of the people
settling near Nebish are from Iowa
and our plan is to hold an annual
'Iowa Day* of the northern Minne
sota farmers from that state. I have
great faith in the future of northern
Minnesota and never do I have to
misrepresent conditions to make a
sale. A man sees the land and he
readily understands why crops of all
kinds are doing successfully here.
It is the place for well-to-do renters
who wish to own their own farms."
Brinegar has a farm of 160 acres
near the outskirts of Nebish and it is
his intention to move there after tha
flr3t of the year, build substantial
buildings and conduct a stock farm
along the most modern lines. He re

the drug store business. His enter

live more of an out-door life. I

GOPHERS READY FOR GAME
Minnesota Football Eleven Prepared
For Annual Clash With Wis
SOLON, STAR FULLBACK, TOFLAY...-M
Interest in the Minnesota-Wiscon
sin football game tomorrow is in
creasing hourly, and while, by rea
son of injuries to the Gophers, the
Badgers will go into the game with
a slight shade as favorites, it is by*
no means assured that the Badgers
will emerge as victors.
Wisconsin's team, under the coach
ing of Juneau, have always played
a driving, line plunging game. Ju
neau has varied the line plunges with
an end-running game marked by a
strong bulwark of interference.
Just what sort of attack Minnesota
will spring remains a well-guarded
secret. An analysis of the plays
contemplated for the entertainment
of Juneau's men is about all that has
not been made public concerning
Minnesota's preparatory work of the
last ten days.
It now seems certain Minnesota
will start the game without the ser
vices of Art Erdahl, quarterback. In
juries sustained in the Illinois game
have kept him out of the fray. In
his place will be Deidrich or Haedge,
regular backs. Bierman, Hamilton
and Solon will be in the lineup.
The players are anxious to whip
Wisconsin. The defeat by Illinois
still rankles in the Gopher camp, and
it has been figured that the best way
to cause the game to be forgotten is
to whip Wisconsin.
The game will be witnessed by a
large number of Bemidji rooters.

was successful in bagging a deer yes

So far as is known in Bemidji this

Warned of Prosecution.
While only the saloons of three
places have been ordered to close, the
fact remains that the other saloons
of the 264 doing business in the
treaty territoi-y will still be in viola
tion of the provisions of the 1855
document should they re
main open. The government's
order, as given here by Larson,
under instruction from Cato Sells,
Commissioner of Indian Affairs, in
forms saloon men that to remain
open after November 30 means that
they will be violating the treaty and
will be punished as provided by law.
Taking this point into consideration
+t appears that, if they are to avoid
prosecution,"saloon owners in other
cities must close when those of the
three other towns do.
