By oversight, seemingly inexcu sable, and which we regret, the Herald last week omitted mention of the very oreditadle amateur per formanoe given at the high school auditorium on Friday evening, May 7th. Because we consider it an event that deserves a place in the record of current local doings we make amends for our remissness by giving this belated notice of the same. The play, entitled "Captured" de picted the trials of an old maid in search of a hustiand and the result ant tribulations of other people. It was well done—as an amateur per formance it was exceptionally well rendered. The story of the anxious old maid and her pestered relations and friends was told in this play, as rendered that evening, with a natur alness and truth to life that delight ed the large audience that witnes sed it. And the audience was duly appreciative throughout. As specialties, there was step dancing by little Juneita Murphy, ihe hit of llie evening, and a vocal solo by John A. Blackwell, of which laiter the audience showed its appre ciation by a strenous effort for an encore, but which, however, failed. The music, furnished by the Ma ple Hill orchestra, was on a par with the general excellence of the performance and added much to the enjoyment of the affair. There is talk of the play being repeated at other planes in the coun ty, and those who may witness it can safely be promised a very plea sant evening.

Scott, of the Pigeon River Lumber Company, in which gratifying information is given as to the present status and prospects of completion of the Canadian end of the great Lake Shore boulevard. The people of Port Arthur have boosted the enterprise (with more then hot air) since its inception pnd will, it appears, more then fulfill their promise to meet us at the line. A delegation of Port Arlhuritei*—a bunch of big boosters they were, visited Grand Marais about two yeafrs ago to enthuse with us over the launching of this enterprise and time has shown them equal to the fulfillment of promises then made. They will complete their end of the road to the Cook county line early this season and they are .enx ious to know that they are not to be long denied the privelege of an* overland ride to Grand Marais. In this letter Mr, Scott says: "The Ontario Government has com pleted the road from here (Port Arthur) to the boundry as far as Oloud River, 37 miles from Port Arthur, having built a first class road as far aB they went. We are informed that they expect to begin work as soon as spring opens ap and complete the road to the boundry as soon as possible. It will probably be completed early in the season, as there are five miles cut and ditched at the present time, and only seven miles more to build. They have a large outfit to put at work and promise to have it com pleted in very good season. I was out on this road on March 19th to the end at Oloud River, and it is one of the finest pieces of road in this district,, and know will compare favorably with the work being done on your end. "We are very anxious to know that progress is being made on your end of the road, how much there is to be oom-f pleted and what the prospects are foil finishing the balance of the road thiqp season, as we are in hopes to be able to get through and make you a visit as soon as possible. I wish you would let tis know conditions and if there is any thing we can do to help matters along." In a telephone message received here since the date of the above mentioned letter it is stated that a deligation of Port Arthur citizens will probably visit Grand Marais on the date of the next meeting of the county board of this county for a friendly visit and at the same time to talk over highway situation. As to completion of the road on the Cook county side, we do not know that the county board has taken definite action as to that. The board, as well as the people of the county, are anxious that the road be completed to the Canadian line at the earliest possible date. While there are not sufficient funds avail able for the completion this year of the five miles still left to be built, the board, we understand, considers it expedient, under the circumstan ces, to go to the limit of its means to open up this five miles so as to make it fairly passible this season. There is a distance of about five miles between the end of the com pleted highway on the reservation and the Canadian line, and it is not difficult country to build through. Since the opening of this five miles is all that is necessary to make pos sible an automobile trip from Du luth to Port Arthur, the very great importance of the county board's at titude in the matter is evident and that attitude being, or course, friend ly, the prospects are encouraging. In this connection the following news item, taken from the Two Har bors Journal-News, is of interest: "County Commissioners John Nor len, John Oliluud, C. E. Bergren, G. H. Good and A. J. Sonju left on Monday for an inspection trip over the new county road from Cramer to the Cook county line, which is now being built. They returned on Tuesday." The completion of this piece of road in Lake county with the com pletion of road work in the west end planned by Cook county for this sea son, the road from this village to Two Harbors and Duluth will be in a fairly passible condition this year. On the whole, we think we oan entertain our Canadian visitors with promises on the occasion of their visit here next month.

For one thing, court convenes on that day, and that will bring many citi zens to Grand Marais. Also the second meeting of the new county "1?*ir Board wHL occur* But. the meeting that should, and doubtless will, be of supreme interest to the whole North Shore, is the meeting for the purpose of organizing the North Shore marketing association, by whatever name it may be known. The organization will have power enough to insure its members a good market for the 1915 potato crop of the shore. The details, as to name, methods and the general purposes can be worked out by the meeting next month. Names enough will no doubt be suggested, and from the list we shall select one that meets the approval of the majority. My individual ohoice would still be "North Shore Fruit Growers Asso ciation." My reasons are that it keeps the idea of a good fruit grow ing country in the fore front as a most valuable advertising asset for the country, always assuming that we can deliver the goods to bask up the promise held out. We can sure ly do that, as far as berries and small fruits are concerned. For my part, I believe Cook county will grow protfiably, every small fruit and tree fruit grown in the northern states or Canada. This includes apples, plums, cherries, pears, peaches, quin ces and grapes. For my part, I firmly expect these things to come to pass. A fruit country once pro fitably established and advertised, becomes a country of high priced land. The name need not describe all our powers and purposes, ^nor need it be long and unweildly. In established fruit belts, lands that are suitable for growing orchards or small fruits become extremely valu able. Our location with reference to markets, and ojir advantage in the lateness of our season of market ing, will be more fully appreciated in the future. It may seem un reasonable to expect that our fruit farms will be among the very high est price in the world, but that is just what I- do expect, though I may not live to see it. ROBT. WALDRON.
