It requires 40,000 cod fish to make a

The coal miners of Colorado, "Wyom-

Volume 1, No. 1 of the Thief River
Falls Review has been received. It is
a si^-column. eight-page paper and is

the initial number of the Review.

The cashier of a bank in Cincinnati
who has been with the bank for over
fortj years, and, who started as a

for $70,000 without any security. This
is a sermon in a nutshell.
One of the results of the recent ic-

Dr. Albert Leffingwell in an article
in the Journal of Education, savs:
"Dangeious and unnecessary These
are the words uhich. in the august
name of science, ma we not stamp
upon all methods of instruction our
public schools which make for thethe
brutahzaMon of childhood by induc
ing ea rh famiharitv with the sacrifice
of life.-"'
That watcn-dog of honor, District
Attorney Jerome of New York, says
that if the Tammanv thugs think they
are going to hav an open town they
have made the d, biggest mistake of
their lives. He savs: '-If this citv
wants the spectacle of its district at
torney applving for private funds for
purposes of enforcing the lawb, that
spectacle will be shown. I can get all

The supreme court of the State has
handel down a decision to the effect
that hen a corporation or person em-
ploy a person under sixteen vears of
age without a permit from the school
board said corporation or person is
responsible for the child as long as it
is in the employ of the company or
person who is making use of its labor
and if it is hurt those employing' it
are clearly responsible for the injury
and are liable for damages. The de-
cision is a good one.
A New York woman whose husband
left her quite an estate, enough of this
world's goods to keep her, has be-
come penniless, because according to
the terms of the will of her husband
she was obliged to erect a handsome
monument for the family in Woodlawn
cemetery. The courts said that she
would have to erect the monument and
go hungry. You can just bet that old
man had some kind of a grudge
against his wife. He didn't take Jais
money with him but he came the next
thing to it doing so.
Senator Hansbrough of North Da
kota has introduced two bills which
are liable to create a good deal of dis-
cussion and attract much attention.
One provides for a federal inspec-
tion of all gram under the supervision
of the inter-state commerce commis-
sion and does away with all state in-
spection. The other bill repeals the
timber and stone act and withdraws
all government timber land from the
market, which under the provisions of
the bill is to be disposed of at its mar-
ket value.

Editor Allen in his-'Growler" col
umn in the Morton Enterprise savs
the following about old settlers leav-
ing the country: "W wish the oldno
settlers would not sell out. They are
the salt of the earth in the best place,
and they have spent the best ears of
their lives making magnificent homes,
and now in their old age to sell for
the pittance they are getting and go to
some strange land is a mistake and
one they will regret a thousand times.
Don't sell, rent if you are tired of
farming, move in town but hang to the
old home where 3 ou have spent the
best of your lives."
Womankind with mawkish ways and
morbid curiosity made a disgusting
exhibition at the Goelct-Roxburghe
wedding in New York last week.
Women, called stylish and respectable,
jammed the streets, tore the canvas
leading to the church doors and stop-
ped the bride's carriage and poked
their heads into ohe carriage window
that they might get a look at the bride.
Policemen were almost helpless in the
mob of frenzied feminines. They were
women of all shades of crime and re-
spectability who went mad over an
event in which an English dude and
an American dame with a fortune were
made man and wife. Oh, fools, fools!
There is one thing the people of
New York state did at the last election
and that was to vote for the expendi-
ture of $101,000,000 for the widening
and deepening of the Erie canal so as
to allow barges of 1,000 tons burden
to reach the seaboard. This means
much to the people of Minnesota as
products of the farms and theMen
factories and mills for export to Eutiently
rope can go an all-water route, and
at a big saving in cost of transporta-
tion. If the canal can be kept intact
for the benefit of the people and is nothours
to fall under the control of the rail-
road influences it will prove a great
saving in transportation rates to thelief
Atlantic seaboard. New York City
has been gradually losing a large
share of the export business which of
late vears has been diverted to other
seaboard points, but she is waking up
to the importance of having more of
the western export trade and it begins
to look as if she would get it.

While Gov. Va Sant is swing-

there seems to be a lively interest
in certain quarters at home in
eliminating him from the list of
entries for the gubernatorial race.
Just where the authority is obtain-

matter. Certainly there is nothing
in the last public utterance of the
governor which contains the slight-

on the retired list, and it may rea-
