Upon You, Says Mr. Calvery
"I now feel that you cannot avoid
having a life saving station thrust

your minds about wanting one?' says
Wm: D. Calvery in a letter to U. S.
Immigration Inspector Joseph Mahan.
Some weeks ago Wm. D. Calvery, a

Mr. George Smith passed away
Tuesday morning at the St. Luke's
hospital an Duluth after a short -ill
ness due to paralysis.
Mr. Smith had just recently moved
his family from Cross River to Grand
Marais to engage in business in, the
Community restaurant. -About two
months ago he was taken with a
paralytic stroke from which he never
recovered. Gangrene set in and last
Thursday his right limb was ampu­
tated, with the hope that this would
save his life. He stood the operation
better than was expected but grew
weaker until yesterday morning when
he passed away.
The body will arrive on the Amer­
ica this evening and interment will
take place at Tofte tomorrow.
Mr. Smith' leaves a wife and four
small children, who have the heart­
felt sympathy of many friends.
During the first month of opera­
tion the association has shipped 3,447
pounds of cream, containing 982.87
pounds of butter-fat, which at price
ranging fromi 53 to 58- cents per
pound for butter-fat has netted
$573.67. Considering the. newness of
the busineiss and that the period
covered has been one of light pro­
duction,, the showing is a good one
and should encourage all the mem­
bers and others interested to push

I have been making occcassional
viaitlHto, Cook county for $ha past 14
years^and -1 am more convinced than
eveg^.ihat dairying can be made the
surest jg wdl as the most profitable
soui-ce of farm income for Cook oouh-.
tile', past you may have had a
iitfe trouble to sell butter to the
jfest advantage, but how, with your
Cooperative cream route and cash
mapke^, dairying should, and will, go
ast. With dairying underway
er settlers will leave the county
and it will be much easier to get
fjthers to come in. -7
verage common .cow, well fed
and c^jred for, will produce close to
200 pounds of butterfat in a year.
A good dairy bred, cow will produce
around 300 pounds of butterfa,t in a
year. For the year 1918 the average
price paid for butterfat 1y coopera­
tive creameries in Minnesota was 54
cents. The price of butterfat this
year, even in Cook county will be
ovlir 50 cents a pound. AV these
Bfes it is possible to have ah in
co&e of $l00( per year from a com­
mon cow and $150 from, dairy ^bred
co|rs. This pays, and' I wantilo say
th^t it can be done without buying
priced:'feed, if the farmer will
A number of farmers have brought
in the Guernseys and many are in­
terested in this breed. There is
plenty of room in Cook county for
botig. the Holsteins and Guernseys,
but they should not be crossed. We
make no progress when we cross
dairy breeds. What every farmer
should do Who has common cows iis
to cross them with a pure bred dairy
sire, and build up his herd along of
one breed, and stick to the breed.
The resent cooperative movement
represented by the Cook County
Warehouse Association I regard as one
of the best undertakings that has
been made for the development of
Cook county. I should expect you to
win but in dairying with the help of
this organization.
Sheriff Lien received a telephone
iftessage from the sheriff of St. Louis
county, instructing him to arrest a
man who was charged with grand
larceney in Virginia. It seems that
this man had sold
automobile for
a man and then left with his family
for a trip to Port Arthur. When he
reached Grand Marais jne bought a
idiraft at one of the local banks and
sent the money to the person whose
car he had sold. However, the per­
son who owned the car thought he
had skipped with the money.
When Mr. Lien received the mes­
sage the party was well on their way
to Port Arthur. Taking the in­
spector at the Pigeon River bridge
with him he proceeded to Port Ar­
thur, arrested the man and brought
him to Grand Marais where hie proved
that he had forwarded a draft to the
owner of the car, thereby proving
his innocense. Mr Lien telephoned
this fact to the sheriff in Duluth
who instructed him* how^rer, to
bring the man along. At Duluth the
judge dismissed*him.

Auguet 20.
Cebtenz, Aug. 2.—All American sol­
diers excepting about 8,000 who will
remain-on the Rhine indefinitely, will,
be out of Germany by August 20, ac­
cording to the latest instruction froth
general headquarters which are being
carried out by th.e officers, in the Cob
lenz area.
In hastening the withdrawal of. the
American troops it was announced
that the First division had been turned
over ta the transportation department
and that the first units of this division
would probably entrain for Brest

Two acres' of cleared, land ,, well

feed to supply winter feed for a cow,
and some times it can be done on less

#|tons of rutabagas. For high pro­
ducing cows it will pay to use a little
mill feed, but it is not ^ecessary.
|pook county has already made a
good start in the improvement of its
cows. The pure bred Holsteins sires
brought into the county a number of
years igo have made a splendid show­
ing1. This breeding should be con­
tinued. It will pay better now to
bring in pure bred sires than it did
10 years ago. A farmer who has a
start with black and white cattle
should continue with that breed.
LitttesHope of Regaining Ground Lost
to Bolshevists.
Paris, Aug. 2.—The All-Russian gov­
ernment of Admiral Kolchak is pre­
pared to move from Omsk to Irkutsk,
Siberia, and the morale of the Kolchak
army is becoming so bad that there is
little hope of it regaining the terri­
tory recently lost to the Bolsheviki,

goods originally purchased by the
government for the army, it was esti­
mated by those in charge of the enter­
prise. The food was recently bought
by the city to be retailed at cost.

Wm. Clinch, secretary-treasurer of
the county national farm loan asso­
ciation, has received from the Ped
eral Land Bank of St. Paul a check
in payment of six per cent dividend
earned by stock owners by the coun­
ty jassociation. The law requires
^hat at least ten per cent of earn-'
i%s be set aside as a reserve fund.
The balance may be used for such
purposes as a fund for temporary
loans to enable members to meet
their amortization payments prompt­
ly, tfpr expenses of loan, committees,
expense or for distiibu
tion'among the members. As all the
officers of the association serve with­
out compensation, and offiifce and
other expenses are reduced to a min­

many from attending the Roshbush

ened the program, but those who
ventured had the pleasure to listen­

the similarity of present conditions
in this county to those jn Milk Lac

the organization of their creameries
and predicting like development for
this county along dairy lines. Mr.
C. O. Johnson, president of the farm
bureau association called attention
to the progress already made in Cook
county and the hopeful outlook for
the future. Mr. S. C. Murphy spoke
of the difficulties encountered by
the first settlers and contrasted for­

concluded with an appeal to the
farmers to support vigorously their
