Why Buy Red Cross Seals?
Why you should buy Red Cross
Christmas Seals, mav be answered
most effectively in the words of a
twelve-year-old boy in the Duluth,
(Minn.) schools, who gave the fol
lowing as his reason in a eompositoa
on this subject:
"The reason I put Red Cross Seals
on mv Christmas gifts is because ev
erv seal I use counts one cent to
ward stamping out tuberculosis in the
city and for the maintenance of hos
pitals for that purpose. The seals
are also used to raise funds to teac'i
oeople the value of fresh air. An
other reason I buy them is because
my father died of tuberculosis and I
buy them so that other little boys
an girls won't lose their father as I
did. Another reason is that if I
am ever threatened with tuberculosis
the doctors will have a fund to try to

The semi-annual meeting of the
Northern Minnesota Development
Association drew a large crowd of
interested business men, farmers au
legislators to International Falls last
week where not a few surprises were
sprung. To a *ood many the "Citv
of Destiny" meant nothing more than
a prosperous village, snruner up, as
it were, during the night, and the en
thusiastic exuberance of its citizens
was looked upon as the effervescence
of a rapidly working townsite boom.
However, this mistaken- notion was
soon dispelled and to those making
their third or fourth trip to the Falls
the solidity of the foundations of
big city now being laid were even
more apparent than to those who had
been denied the opportunity of
watching the wonderful transforma
tion which has been taking place
since the earlier frontier buildings
were erected. First came the wond
erful works of nature, the Indian and
the homesteader's shack. Then the
men with capital and courage har
nessed the seething torrents and bade
the giant forces do their bidding.
Millions upon millions were spent
upon the great dam and paper mill

Northwestern Telephone Ex
change Co. Makes Our City
The Northwestern Telephone Ex
change Company have made some im
portant changes at Willmar follow
ing the purchase of the Minnesota
Central Co. lines and exchanges. A
re-organi2ation has been effected by
which Willmar becomes the center of
a district which includes practical
ly all of the old Minnesota Central
property in southwestern Minnesota,
and some other portions of the
Northwestern system as far east as
Dassel. District offices will be es
tablished at Willmar with a District
Plant Chief, a District Traffic Chief
and a District Commercial Manager.
Each one of these officials will have
an office with assistants. There will
also be a storekeeper at Willmar to
have charge of a warehouse, from
which all the supplies for the Dis
trict Will be issued. The question of
finding suitable office room and com
petent stenographers for these new
oces is worrying Mr. Williams not a
little. It is estimated that this new
departure of the Northwestern will
add not less than 25 employes
to the pay-roll of the Company
Willmar. It is possible that there
will be a building secured at Willmar
to house the telephone offices exclus
ively similar to the one used by the
District headquarters at St. Cloud.

Carpenter Company have their large
saw mill. Besides the paper mill at
the Falls is the immense saw mill

tions point very strongl- to the
crowding of the retail and business
part of the city to that section lying
along the river towards Ranier, where
the American Suburbs Company has
its magnificent holdings. Already a
