fHIS PAPER REPRESENTED FOR FOREIGN
ADVERTISING BY THE
NEW YORK AND CHICAGO
BRANCHES IN ALL THE PRINCIPAL CITIES
There is no place in Minnesota
which has gained more prominence
as a progressive, wide-awake and
prosperous community during the
past few years than Bemidji, and on
Thursday of this week that spirit of
enterprise which has played such an
important part in its rapid advance
will be properly demonstrated, for on
that day more than half of the mem
bers of the state senate, a large num
ber of representatives, several state
officials and guests will visit here.
They will come in connection with
the legislative excursion which is
being made to principal towns and
cities of Northern Minnesota. Be
midji, as will this entire section of
the state, will be on parade, and our
citizens have arranged to take ad
vantage of the opportunity to show
our' guests he many resources wbftjh
are "destined to make this city the
center of one of the nation's greatest
agricultural and dairying communi
ties and which are to assist in attain
ing the coveted goal, a population of
25,000 in 1925.
American Aid for War Victims.
The American people are the best
givers in the world. Since the birth
of the nation, no call for help from
the poor or distressed of other coun
tries has ever failed to meet a prompt
and abundant response. Sufferers
from famine, floods, earthquakes and
other calamities have never appealed
to the American heart and the Amer
ican purse in vain, says the Minne
Americans have been contributing
liberally of money, food and clothing
to the war sufferers in Belgium, Po
land, Serbia and other countries and
they will probably continue to do so
as long as the war'lasts, but it is
asking too much when we are called
upon to contribute to the relief of
distress in the nations that are ac
tually engaged in war. The Bel
gians did not begin fighting of their
own accord. Their war, with its
consequent distress, was forced, upon
them. Disease in Serbia has caused
an appeal for help which Americans
will not resist. Poland, a victim of
the war without being a part of it,
is entitled to the sympathy and help
of the world. But in the countries
actively engaged in the war, the suf
fering of women and children is
caused by their own governments. To
genii them supplies would simply
strengthen, their rulers for further
acts of war.
There is no obligation upon chari
table America to feed hostile nations.
The competency of the governments
and the money classes in the warring
countries to relieve the distress of
their people has not been destroyed.
The duty of caring for their own
rests with these governments, and as
a matter of fact, the Allies should be
required to relieve Belgian distress,
so long as they are using Belgium as
There is such a thing as abusing
the charity of the American people.

The Faribault Pilot, in comment
ing upon Senator Rockne-s well
known ability, his statesmanship
and his strenuous application to

wants to be governor or not, but
that he is available timber we know
very well. He would make a real

For" several years the people have
demanded that telephone companies
be placed under tlje regulation of a
state commission, especially with a
view of compelling all long distance
companies to connect with every lo
cal exchange. The provision has
finally been enacted into law. It is
a reasonable law Now the
telephone companies are going to
fight, and they will set up that the
law is unconstitutional, and will
carry the fight through the courts
for years and years. Meanwhile the
people will become more and more
impatient and more and more regu
latory measures will be passed, and
in the end the telephone companies
will let out a holler and beg, just
as the railroad companies have hol
lered and beggedfor fair treatment.
The people will be fair today with
the telephone companies if the tele
phone companies will only have the
good sense to stop their fighting, and
give the people the service thfy
SCHOOL AID FUND
Owing to the increase in the num
ber of high and graded schools giving
instruction in agriculture, manual
training and domestic science, there

ture, the individual schools will re
ceive only 70 per cent of what the
legislators intended and the schools
This announcement by the state
high school board will be a disap
pointment to the school authorities,
but, according to Dr. C. G. Schulz,
superintendent of education, it can
not be helped at present. The board
will meet Tuesday in the state capi
tol to apportion $1,800,000 to schools
listed for the year 1915-16.
E Phillips, high school inspec
tor, recommends 221 high schools as
entitled to aid during the current
year and lists 226 for next year. R.
B. MacLean, graded school inspector,
recommends 241 for the present year
and 255 for next year.
"The last legislature made im
portant changes in the law relating
to the annual aid to high and graded
schools, industrial aid and training
aid," says Mr. Schulz. "Beginning
with next year, each high school will
receive $1,800 instead of $2,200.
Each graded school will get $600 in
stead of $750.

Restricting Garage Locations.
A section ot an ordinance in force in
a suburb of Chicago reads: "It~shall
not be lawful for any person or corpo
ration to locate, build, construct or
maintain in the village of Oak Park,
on any site where two thirds of the
buildings within a radius of 500 feet
of the proposed site are used exclu
sively for residence purposes, & build
ing for a public garage without
written consent of a majority of the
property owners, according to front
age, within a radius of 500 feet of the
proposed site of the building."
In a decision lately handed down by
the supreme court of Illinois in the
case of People versus Village of- Oak
Park, 107 Northeastern Reporter 636,
the validity of this regulation was sus
tamed as constituting a valid exercise
of the police power of a municipality.
It was further held that the ordinance
applies to garages which were in ex
istence when the ordinance was-pass
ed, and hence does not discriminate
against those sought to be established

BAD TAKE SALTS
Says Backache is a sign you have been
eating too much meat, which
forms uric acid.
When you wake up with backache and
dull misery in the kidney region it gen
erally means you have been eating too
much meat, says a well-known authority.
Meat forma uric acid which overworks
the kidneys in their effort to filter it
fiom the blood and they become sort of
paralyzed and loggy. When your kidneys
get sluggish and clog you must relieve
them, like you relieve your bowels re
moving all the body's urinous waste,
elsa you have backache, sick headache,
dizzy spells, your stomach sours, tongue
is coated, and when the weather is bad
you have rheumatic twinges. The urine
is cloudy, full of sediment, channels often
get sore, water scalds and you are obliged
to seek relief two or three times during
