A representative of the Maple Leaf Telephone Co. of North Branch was in this section recently and there are pros pects of a telephone line from Milaca ta Isle, and it may possibly be built from Isle down to Mora. The people are quite in favor of the proposition as a telephone would be a great con venience in this section where we have no railroad. Everybody should help the project along as every man living in this community would need to use a telephone a good many times during the year, and it might save many long trips as well as many dollars in the course of a year. All should feel wil ling to do something to help the pro ect along. STANCHFIELD LAKE. Meadows are so wet. Haying is pro gressing slowly. Wm. Radeke is building a fine resi dence on his farm.

DENOUNCED BY NEGROES. Booker T. Washington Arraigned by a Boston Organization. Boston, Sept 2.The Suffrage League of Boston, a negro organiza tion, has adopted resolutions declar ing: "Inasmuch as Booker T. Washington has glorified the revised constitution of the South, has minimized the Jim Crow car outrage, has attacked the wisdom of the fourteenth and six teenth amendments to the Constitu tion has deprecated the primary im portance of the ballot, has preached to the colored people of silent submission to intolerable conditions and makes his people a by-word and laughing stock before the world, he is not a fit leader for the colored race and no president who recognizes him as a po litical leader should receive the col ored vote of the North. "Therefore, since President Roose velt has given him charge of the ap pointment of all negroes of whatever state in the Union, and has made him the negro adviser as to all policies af fecting colored Americans, in the in terests of our race we -call upon Presi dent Roosevelt to dispense with Mr. Washington as our political spokes- man." an. 3 Well Named Paint The practical painter says, the man who storms at the weather because the paint on his house won't weather the storms, could live a life of sun shine by using Patton's SUN-PROOF Paint Patton's Sun-Proof Paint gives double the service of all-white lead or any ordinary paint.
