Mrs. Emma Helmer left last Mon
day for Edgewood, Iowa, after a
very pleasant and prolonged stay in
Fank Jarecliy was a Wilton^busi
ness visitor Thursday.
The Deer Lake school closed at 11
o'clock Friday due to the illness of
Miss Owen, the teacher.
Tuesday and Wednesday many of
the Libertyites were Bemidji visit
ors. Among those who transacted
business were J. W. McKee, Gus Lo
vik, Joseph and Thomas Jadlowski,
Gus Christianson, Wilbur Smith,
Arthur M. Crapo, Louis A. Hanson,
Iver Myhre, Charles Anderson, M.
A. Djonne, M. Rygg, Ole Jacobson
and Mr. and Mrs. James F. Hayes.
As many of these people made the
trip over the Wilton road, the one
who boke the road must have had a
regular sized picnic.
At the present time there are four
graduates of the Deer Lake school
in the Bemidji high school. They
are Lydia Hayes," Edith and Agnes
Jacobson and Charles McKee. Last
week the reports for the first six
weeks' period were out. Ye writer
had the pleasure of seeing two of
those report cards and the marks
were most gratifying. Charles is a
freshman and is carrying four sub
jects. His lowest mark was 89.
Lydia Hayes is ,in the normal de
partment, has six subjects and her
marks were all over 80. I do not
know how Edith and Agnes Jacob
son came out but no doubt they did
good work. Now, it so happens that
these four students are all working
their way through. They are the
workers of the world, not the shirk
ers! Do you get me, reader dear?
If there is any one who can take off
(his hat with any more grace than
I can to such students, I would like
to shake hands with them. Cer
tainly these four are making a good
record for themselves and the little
red school house from whence they
came. If tlie rest of the children in
the Deer Lake school do as well, Mr.
Crapo can feel that his five years
were not spent in vain.

It has often occurred to me
whether the women from the coun
try ever avail themselves of the
blessings to be found in the Bemidji
Public Library when they are in
town. I have always maintained
that the public library is the most
democratic institution we have and
that the librariansno matter whero
they areare the most efficient.

cials we have. Miss Mills is no ex
ception and when I am very-limited
for time and rush in breathlessly tc

Miss Mills is ever ready to assist.
I would suggest that if any of you
are wondering what kind of books
you should buy for your children
or friends for Christmas, the librar
ian is always an excellent advisor.
The public library is one delightful
place to spend any spare moments
that one may have.

report inquiries for wood at the rate of hundreds a week. People in our busy little city will suffer from the
cold this winter and bigger cities will suffer even more.
If you can do anything to relieve this situation you should, and you will be well paid for the efforts as
prices on wood are higher this year than ever before.
If you own stuinpage, every hour spent in making it available for fuel will help. If you do not own
