One "Million Dollars Added to the Perma
nent School Fund by Recent Land Sales.
The State school land sales closed
last week were record breakers in
every county. In eleven counties 127,-
250 acres of land were sold for $1,272,-
500. or an average price of $10 00 per
acre. The highest average was in
Clay county where the sales averaged
$14.60 per acre. In Norman they aver
aged $12.91. The lowest average was
in Beltrami at $7.
The sum to be derived from the sales
will net the permanent school fund an
income of between $3-5,000 and $40,000
per year.
One good feature of the sales was the
fact that most of them were to bona
fide settlers who came from Iowa, Illi

and Missouri to pick up the choice
pieces. Those people will prove val
uable acquisitions to northern Minne
