The attorney-general, in reply to a
query from the superintendent of
schools of Mille Lacs county asking
what power the county board has in
the division of school property upon
the creation of anew district, has de
cided that the county board is without
authority at the present time to make
division. The new code has
taken away whatever power the board
under the statute as it existed
prior to the adoption of the code.
This is an omission in the new code,
and the county commissioners have
no power to divide school properties
upon the creation of a new district.

Hard on the Doctors.
In the rural districts in Ireland the
people place implicit faith in a doc
tor's prescription. In a village in
County Limerick a sorrowful young
man went along to the local under
taker's to order a coffin for his father.
"Dear me," said the undertaker, I
didn't know poor old Pat was dead."
'No he's not dead yet," replied the
mourning relative, "but he'll die to
night, for the doctor says he can't
live till morning, and he knows what
he gave him."
A somewhat similar story is told of
the actual death of a parent. A peas
ant lad, asked by a gentleman how his
father was, replied: "Ah, my poor
father died last Wednesday, your
honor." "I'm very sorry to hear it,"
said the gentleman. "I must have
been very sudden. What doctor at
tended him?" "Ah, sir," said the
boy, "my father wouldn't have a doc
tor: he always used to say he'd like
to die a natural death."London
Takes a Fall Out of the Men.
A Paris statistician hasfixedthe
time that women spend at different
periods of their existence before mir
rors. The statistician cannot arrive
at an accurate idea of how much time
men spend in the same way, because
he is probably too busy to keep tab
on the length of time they spend in
self-contemplation in the mirror
across the bar or opposite the loung
ing seats in smoking rooms, in clubs
and trains, to say nothing of the time
put in at his own apartment at shav
ing and arranging ties and inspecting
the "set" of his coat on the shoulders.

Fine Hunting Region.
A dispatch from Walker says that
Leech lake region bids fair to
break all records this fall as a hunt
ing region. Ducks were never more
plentiful in the bays and adjoining
lakes, and their numbers are only ex
ceeded by the partridges and pheas
ants in the woods adjoining the lakes.
Although yet early in the season,
parties have returned to Walker from
one and two days' trips with full game
bags, and their accounts of the abund
ance of game would seem more ex
aggerated than the tales of the fisher
men in those parts were the exact
conditions not known to all sports
