ST. CLOU EASILY
WO N GAM E
Grand Forks Fought Hard
But Went Down to
HEAVY HITTING WAS FEATURE
OF THE GAME.
Was an Unusual Amount of Bet
ting, With St. Cloud the
A fight on second base, one
home run, three three-base base
hits and two two-baggers were a
few of the interesting features
of yesterday's ball game. The
final score stood 9 to 5 in favor of
jrt St. Cloud, and the latter did not
have to play her half of the
Grand Forks gave as an ex
cuse for defeat the fact that she
had left her best pitcher and
and catcher at home to prepare
for today's game with Duluth.
Something was lacking for the
Forkers were at the mercy of
St. Cloud at all stages of the
game. In two hours of play
they won an easy victory. Grand
Forks ran in three of her scores
in the ninth inning, when Kilroy,
who relieved Wilson, the St.
Cloud pitcher, early in the sixth
inning weakened and was easily
Scott, who was catching for
Grand Forks, caught a swift
ball in his bare hand early in the
game and suffered a split finger,
making it necessary for him to
be relieved. In the eighth inning
Bennet, the doughty little short
stop for St. Cloud had a differ
ence of opinion with a base run
ner. The two came to blows
but were seperated before blood
Rooting was loud and there
was an unusual amount of bet
ting. St. Cloud seemed to be
the favorite from the start.
Wilson, the star negro pitcher
for St. Cloud, was in great trim
and it was a joy to see him at
work. The Grand Forks pitcher,
McKenna, was being tired out,
and there was plenty of room for
improvement in his work. There
was, an attendance of 1,600 at the

Pound In the Nails.
It would be a good idea for our
property owners to take their
little hammers and go to knock
ing at the nail heads which are
sticking out of the sidewalk's all
over town. They are not only
hard on shoes but they catch
ladies' dresses also. A conserv
ative estimate places the number
of dresses torn in this manner
yesterday while the crowd was
in town at thirty.
Bemidji Has Been Offered the
Next G. A. R. State
MAS S MEETING WiLL BE HELD
AT CITY HALL T0XIGHT.
Every Citizen Requested to Be
Present to Discuss the
Bemidji can have the state
G. A. R. encampment next year
and for many years to come if
she wants it. It has been volun
tarily offered to her by those in
the G. A. R. who have control.
The chance is one that every city
in the state, from Minneapolis
down, would jump at, and if Be
midji fails to make the most of
the opportunity it will be a
serious blow to her future
growth. A mass meeting of all
the citizens of the town will be
held at the city hall toniglit at 8
o'clock and all those interested
in seeing the interests of the
town advanced should not fail to
be present. The meeting will be
for the purpose of discussing the
encampment matter and making
a final decision as to whether or
not the citizens are interested
enough in the project to take
hold of the opportunity and make
adequate provision for caring
for the old soldiers and their
freinds should the encampment
be located here.
The camp would be of inestim
able value to Bemidji and once
secured it would come here
every year, for it is not custom
ary to change the site of the
state encampment from year to
year. For many years past it
has been in St. Paul and Minne
apolis, and a continual fight has
been waged to see which would
get it. The expenses for the
veterans are so high in these
cities that the officers of the
organization thought that it
would oe adviseable to make a
change to a smaller town, where
\ents could be pitched and' the
expenses would not be so
great. Of all the towns in the
state Bemidji was selected. This
speaks well for the town. The
very fact of the state meet being
held here would mean a great
jimiout of free advertising for
weeks ahead, to say nothing of
the immediate benefits to be de
rived. Five or six thousand
people would be here for a week
each year. It is proposed to
hold the next encampment in
June. If it comes here the tents
will be pitched in the vicinity of

There Were More Than
1,500 in the, City
NEARLY ALL OF THEM CAME
TO SEE THE GAME.
St. Cloud Train Brought Double
the Number of Grand Forks
The two excursion trains to
Bemidji yesterday brought 1.5(50
visitors. The. St. Cloud train
had the biggest crowd. The
special of thirteen coaches had
1,022 passengers on board and
the Grand Forks train brought
only 53S. The latter arrived at
11:25 a. m. and the former at 1:45
p. m. The Blackduck excursion
was called oft" Saturday night.
The weather was threatening
all morning but shortly after
noon the clouds cleared away and
the sun shone brightly, making
it an ideal day for the excursions
and ball game. The visitors
nearly all of them came to Be
midji for the special purpose of
witnessing the ball game. After
the game they walked about
town and along the lake shore,
taking in the sights. The St.
Cloud baud, which had been
brought along, gave an open air
concert at the corner of Beltrami
avenue and Third street.
There was a good deal of kick
ing at the exorbitant prices
charged by the draymen for
carrying the' people to the fair
grounds. A fare of 25 cents
each way was charged.~ Those
having the game in charge claim
that all the draymen had agreed
before hand to charge only ten
cents each way. At this price
there would have been a good
margin of profit.

WHEAT AT CROOKSTON.
No Certain Knowledge as Yet About
the Yield That Will Come.
Crookston, Minn.. July 26. Grain
experts who are familiar with the sit
uation believe that the yield this year
will be the best for the past three
years. Many fields of wheat will go
as high as twenty-five bushels to the
acre if conditions are the most favor
able. On the other hand, many will
probably not go more than six or sev
en. Some judges are inclined to put
the estimate of the average yield of
wheat for the valley as low as eight
or ten bushels per acre, while the
more optimistic put it as high as fif
teen. All judges of any degree of re
liability believe that the valley will
see the largest crop of wheat within
the past three years. In other words
the crop will not fall much, if any. be
hind the average.
