More than 150 houses are either
in the course of construction -in
Bemidji at the present time or
have been completed within the
past few weeks. They have all
been started this season, and the
foundations for new buildings
are being laid almost daily.
This building record is a re
markable one and one which the
citizens of the town may well
point to with pride. The Daily

Bemidji's boom has been a sub
stantial one. It is not a mere
bubble as so many booms
are, which are liable to break at
any moment, but is in the nature
of a lasting and prosperous
growth. The breaking of booms
in towns which have sprung up
like mushrooms in the night is
often caused by the failure or re
moval of irresponsible manufac
turing concerns attracted to the
new townsite by alluring bon
uses. These institutions are
naturally followed by'"crowds of
workmen with their families,
many of whom have barely
enough money to land them in
the new town. Rows of com
pany houses are built, company
stores put in,, etc. When the
factories leave or break up in
business the workman is left on
the town. He does not own -his
home and has no other interest
in the town other than to make
enough money to keep alive.
In Bemidji the houses that
have gone up this spring and
summer are almost without ex
ception built by residents of the
town, many of them workmen
who desire to own their homes.
A large proportion of the houses
in Bemidji are occupied by their
owners who intend to reside
here for years to come. They

YALE DOWNS HARVARD.
Sons of Eli Win All Three of the Boat
New London, Conn., June 27.For
the first time on record Yale tri
umphed over Harvard in all three of
their boat races in the annual regat
ta on the Thames. Yale won the
eight-oared 'varsity race by three and
one-half lengths. In all three races
Harvard put up a memorable fight and
went down to defat after gallant
struggles in which her boys rowed out
the last ounce of their strength.
Yale's three victories are attributed
by the experts to the superiority of
the stroke taught Yale by John Ken
nedy over that taught Harvard by
her graduate coaches. So far as phys
ical form was concerned there was no
choice between the crews, except with
the possible exception that the Yale
freshmen outweighed their Harvard
rivals by over seven pounds to the
man. The 'vari/ty race was a sur
prise. The freshman race was con
ceded to Yale, while the four-oared
race was also given to Yale in the
great majority of the predictions.

New York, June 27.It is reported

much for a young man of this city,
and he has been declared insane on
the subject and sent to St. Bernard's
