*ANCHE IN ALl THF PRINCIPAL CITlfc*
It is important that the farmers of
this district plant more potatoes this
year than in previous years, as this
year's crop should be one of the most
profitable for a, number of years.
There is pretty sure to be a de
cided decrease in the acreage of pota
toes grown in the eastern states, par
ticularly in Maine, which is the
greatest potato raising state in the
east, according to an article in the
Given Hardware News in the Pioneer
this week. The reason for the de
crease of the acreage in the eastern
states is that the price of fertilizer,
normally $30 a ton, is now $85 per
ton and that the cost of spraying an
acre of potatoes, normally six dollars,
is now $17.
As it requires in =the eastern terri
tory, a ton of commercial fertilizer
to an acre of potatoes, this will in
crease the initial cost of raising an
acre of potatoes $66, consequently
the acreage is almost sure to be great
The very finest of potatoes are
grown in this district, however, with
out the aid of a commercial fertil
izer.. People eat potatoes regardless
of the high prices and with the pros
pect of the decreased acreage in the
east, the demand for good potatoes in
markets here will be great and will
surely increase the price substan
At a meeting of the board of di
rectors of the Bemidji Commercial
club last evening, E. M. Sathre, who
has been acting as temporary secre
tary of the club for several months,
was named secretary for the balance
of the year. The action of the di
rectors will he approved by every
member of the Commercial club. Sec
retary Sathre has proved himself a
capable secretary and during his few
months of service has done much to
put the club on, a .good, sound, ac
tive basis. Secretary Sathre, by per
sonal solicitation, has increased the
membership of the club over 100.

BACKACHE IS DlSCdUBAGINQ
But Not So Bad You Know How to
Reach the Cause.
Nothing more discouraging than a
constant backache. Lame when you
awaken, pains pierce you when you
bend or lift. It's hard to work or to
rest. Backache often indicates bad
kidneys. Bemidji people recommend
Doan's Kidney Pills. Read this case
Oliver Gordhamer, carpenter, 1200
Dewey Aye., Bemidji, says: "I., "was
stiff, and lame in the morning and it
hurt me to bring any strain on my
back. I believe it was heavy lifting
and hard work that brought on the
trouble,, I was handicapped in doing
my work, especially stooping or lift-?
ing. Three or four boxes of Doan's
Kidney Pills strengthened my back
and made me well. I have had no
