I N BELTRAM I
A Long Prairie Man Writes
His Home Paper.
Editor Leader: I will endeavor
to tell the readers of your paper
something about Beltrami county,
where some of us Round Prairie
and Long Prairie people have just
visited and I believe some with
the idea of securing a gold mine
(or homesteads equal to a gold
mine) and from the way some
homesteads were represented to
us by a friend in Beltrami county
through a friend in Todd county,
was enough to lead us to such an
ideaas the claims were repre
sented to us to be black heavy
soil and clay subsoil, and with
from 250,000 to 300,000 feet of
pine timber on them.
Well, we found the soil to be
very sandy and no black dirt,
where the jackpine grew thick,
and there was perhaps 25,000 to
40,000 feet of good pine and a lot
of small jackpine, no good. So
some of the boys began to get
homesick and want to get back to
Todd county, and they began to
scatter. One rah onto a good
cedar claim and took it and then
all left for Todd county on the
first stage except me. I was left
alone to investigate and prospect
and see whether or not there was
any good land and timber left for
I followed a locater fine days
and found some good claims and
took one, very good land, and has
from 800,000 to 400,00feet of pine,
spruce and balsam. Saw timber
on it worth $4.00 per thousand as
it stands, and there is more good
claims to be gotten in Beltrami
and Itasca counties by looking for
them a little. This land is being
take i very fast and in my opinion
there will be nothing loft in a
year or two, not even the spruce
and tamarack and cedar swamps,
but all will be taken up. Even
the poorest claims will be worth
from $1,000 to $2,000, and a man
without a home, or even with one,
I think, would do well and make
money by going to Beltrami or
Itasca counties and get 160 acres
for $14.00 and prove up on it in
forteen months, and if he don't
want to stay in that county sell
out and go elsewhere.
All new counties have had their
disadvantages and inconveniences
and we must not expect to find
government land or very cheap
lands in an improved country, and
must not expect to see a timbered
country improved as fast as a
There is a great deal of work
being done in this section of coun
try and wages are very good. Men
get from $30.00 to $40.00 per
month, and $50.00 to $60.00 with
teams, in winter.

Money in Raising Potatoes.
A largo number of settlers seem
to be of the opinion that it doesn't
pay to raise potatoes and other
garden stuff for market. Mr.
Oscar Funk greatly differs with
this class of people. Last summer
Mr. Funk from one acre which he
had into potatoes realized $108 in
cash, had enough to supply a
household of eight people all win
ter and had potatoes left for seed
this spring. This acre, he figures,
brought him about $175. This
year he has several acres under
cultivation and will experiment
with one acre of wheat and one of
oats. He has recently added
several pieces of farm machinery,
and a stump puller, and the first
thing you know Oscar will have
as fine a farm as can be found in
the famous Red River valley.
Saved Many a Time.
Don't neglect coughs and colds
even if it is spring. Such cases often
result seriously at this season just be

The New Engagement Ring
According to the smart people
the favorite engagement ring of
the day is a pear-shaped stone,
preferably a diamond, the setting
almost invisible, the circlet very
thin. If a colored stone is chosen
instead of a diamond, tho accom
modating jeweler will surround
it with the tiniest of diamonds,
making a brilliant line of white
fire. The favorite drink of tho
people is "Golden Grain Belt"
boor. Brewed from the purest
barley malt and hops, i is re
freshing and dolicious. Order
of your nearest dealer or be sup
