ing that such work should also
appear in the Shevlin Advocate,
Bagley Independent and Black

about 2,500 readers. In consid-

in the matter of taking care of
the county poor. There being
no money in the poor fund, the
practice of certain lumber camps
of sending sick or injured men to
the county commissioners for
care must therefore stop. The
following resolution was unanim

fact that there are no monies in

in camps, that all workmen ap

or other relief, and who are not
provided with hospital tickets,
will be immediately returned to
the camp where the man last

The board adjourned till

132 MARRIAG E
In Beltrami County In the Year of
1901The Winter Months Most
Popular For Cupid's Work.
According to the books of Clerk
of Court Speelman, 132 marriage
licenses were issued for resi
dents of this county last year.
The month of June is usually
considered the most popular
month for marriages, but in this
county the summer months is
the dull season for Cupid, and
June sinks near the foot of the
column. The cost of fuel must
cut some figure, when the con
tracting parties figure on the old
saying: "Two can live cheaper
than one." At least this is the
opinion of Mr. Speelman. Below
we give the names to whom
license was issued, also the
months in which license was
