ONE DOLLAR A YEAR MATT JOHNSON. Publisher. Official County and Village taper. WHEN THE STATE STRETCHED FORTH ITS ARM (Bemidji Daily Pioneer.) Perhaps some have taken it upon themselves to laugh arid: sneer at itie Home Guard of the state of Minne sota. Thousands of the ai'dent sup porters of the foes of the state and government have shouted themselves hoarse in tirades of abuse, baseless and senseless accusations, spewing their idiotic maledictions upon Gov ernor Burnquist, Minnesota's loyal war governor. All this and more in frantic attempts to tear down the structure of government and revert ti license and lawlessness at the hands of a hode of malcontents of anti-Americanism. The terrible holocaust, which swept miles of the most prosperous portions of the great state of Minne sota, which took a dreadful toll of nearly a thousand lives, red-blooded settlors, their wives and children, swept a41 the earthly possessions of the survivors, including their very body covering, left thousands of lit tle ones fatherless, and motherless, scarred and maimed for life, stamp ed indelibly the merits of the Home Guard of the state of Minnesota. Among the first to leap to succor ol the devastated district, they worked heroically, battling flames, rescuing victims and caring for refugees. They did everything that human could do in such a crisis. They per formed their duty nobaly and are en titled to the highest commendation possible to bestow. Before the smoke had commenced to die away upon the awfulness oj the smoking and charred embers ol all that stood in grandeur,, the thou sands of homes, the prosperous towns and villages, Governor Burn quist ,head of the •much. maligned (by some) Public Safety Commission accompanied by the commission members were on the scene at Moose Lake and other points laid waste. The strong arm of the state of Min nesota was thrown around the wretched, stout-hearted survivors ir all their misery and extended tc them the hand of mercy and com fort. There is no ftJhd upon whjch, tc draw in such an emergency. Such has never been thought of nor con sidered. No special session of the legislature could be held to provide relief. Immediate action was neces sary. In the midst of the desolate waste of Moose Lake, fire swept, with not a vestige of life visible? countless charred bodies mute evidence in the charnel house, Heavenly domed Gov ernor Burnquist called his commis sion together and they took the ne cessary action that transferred to the relief of the fire victims every cent in the treasury of the Public Safety Commission, amounting to thousands of dollars, appropriated by the last session of the state leg islature, for the protection of the people of the state of Minnesota. And in the hour of such need the "despised" Public Safety Commission headed by Minnesota's chief execu tive, defied all precdeent and extend ed succor, aid and comforti to peo ples of all in the great North Star state, bereft of their homes, their earthly possessions and their loved ones. And the people of the entire state will uphold them in their actiion. REPRESENTATIVES WILL CHECK W. S. S. PLEDGES Patriotic people of Minnesota are out to make a record in the redeem ing of pledges for War Savings Stamps. They have already proven themselves loyal by pledging ap proximately $40,000,000. Of this amount there is still $18,000,000 out standing in unredeemed pledges. All of these pledges must be redeemed in order to put Minnesota in its pro per place among the patriotic States of the Union. The State Committee has just launched a campaign in which a check is being made upon every un redeemed pledge in the State. Spec ial representatives have been assign ed to each county, and every place where/ pledges have been Bodged for collection will be visited and the da ta in connection with unredeemed pledges will be taken by these rep resentatives and same will be invest igated through the State ^Committee with a determination by the Com mittee that there will be no unre deemed pledges outstanding by De cember 31st, 1918, at which time the 1 "V-. J' 1918 campaign, for the State gloseto. Minnesota has enjoyed 4istrict£. a mo»t prosperous "said State Director Donald S. Cul ver. "While we have suffered ,ter rible catastrophe in som$/ offeror northern counties, it should be the determination of other counties to absorb the War Savings Stamps which normally would have been taken by these counties.' The cash sales in Minnesota amount to ap proximately $22,500,000 to date, and if each individual at this t!ime re deems any pledge outstanding in his .name, we can very materially in crease these figures. n, "We are now approocfcng the sea son of the year when the thought of giving occurs to all of us, and earnestly hope that a large portion of the money which under normal conditions -would be spent for non essentials and gifts of a nature un becoming the present conditions, will this year find its way into Un file Sam's pockets by the liberal! purchase of War Savings Stamps. In this way our dollars can be made to do double duty, and we can rest in the thought of having done some thing which is in strict accordance with the wishes of the Government LETTER TO DAD. The following was taken from a newspaper published in France and sent to Nevada relatives by a Neva da Doughboy, who is now fighting in France, and is republished by re quest: "On the Run, Somewhere in France" "Everywhere in France" All the Time." Dear Fadder: I am writing on der run, as der brave and glorious soldiers under ny command have not seen der ilhine for so long dat dey have start jd back dat way, and of course, I im going mit dem.

Did you ever hear any ting so offel? 1 didn't tink anybody vould say such an offel ting. It made me so mad, I vouldn't stand and hear such an of fel ting so I turned around and run mit de oder boys. Vos I right? Vot? And, oh, fadder, you know dem breastplates vot you sent us—you can send some to put on our backs? You know we are going de odder vay, now, and breastplates are no good for the cowardly Americans are shooting us right in de back. Some of our boys took der breast plates and put 'em behind, but de fool Americans are playiftg "De Star Spangled Banner" mit machine guns on dem plates. Can you help us?
