A Pittsburg paper declares that the

it draws its conclusions from existent

Mars alighted with terrific force on
the top of a big touring car at
Memphis last week. Luckily it was
not the planet Mars which descended
merely Mars, the aeronaut.
Ex-Congressman Bede is of the
opinion that the next national house
of representatives will be democratic.
Better a democratic house than a con

Mayor Seidel of Milwaukee says
that every dollar of tax money ex

of benefit. The idea is all right but
Seidel will have a hard time putting it
into practice.
Some of the city papers intimate
that Hon. Wm. Lee would be satis

Mr. Lee has never given the slightest

The United States circuit court of
New York last week fined the sugar

the courts continue to fine this much

"Senator 'Beverage' was made
chairman of the republican state
convention held at Indianapolis,"
says the Todd County Argus. The
Argus should not be surprised to find
a libel suit on its hands if Beveridge's
attention is called to the item.

A movement is about to be made by
the department of justice against the

John Lind did not attend the Jeffer

auditorium last evening. Mr. Lind
did not wish to be placed in a posi

himself on the gubernatorial question.
He had pressing business in Oregon.
Even the temporary and permanent
chairman of the republican state con

the powers that be. The delegates will
meet, ratify the slate and platform
already prepared by Ed, Dar and
Bill Grimshaw, adjourn, pay their
hotel bills and go home.
The papers are asking what Roose

is perfectly safe to assume that he will
not long remain idle or abandon
politics. The United States senate
would be a good place for Mr. Roose

arouse it from its slumber.
The Hague peace tribunal will con

It is pleasing to note the push mani

good roads there will be no lack of
settlers, for there is plenty of dehas

Southern Minnesota is beginning to
realize that there is such a place as
northern Minnesotaat any rate the
papers down there occasionally refer
to occurrences in the northern towns.
And southern Minnesota should not
be surprised when northern Minnesota
leaves it in the rear so far as prog

when the northern part of the state
will be so far ahead of the southern
part as the automobile is of the jaunt

hams, eggs and carcasses be stenciled
with the dates upon which they are re

against a law of this sort. When the
stuff approaches the age limit they
can easily wash off the dates and

A writer in the Duluth News-Tribune
arrived at the conclusion that the
climate and soil of St. Louis county is
all that could be reasonably desired,
that a good market for farmers' prod
uce exists, but the stumbling block
in the way of agricultural develop
ment is the lack of good roads. With
an assessable valuation of $247,000,-

county should not have a splendid
system of highways in every township
within its boundaries. It is the fault

because an eastern man has any more
capacity in the matter of legislation
than a western man, but because when
the eastern states get a good repre
sentative they keep him as long as he
lives, and then he obtains an influence
that vastly exceeds the mere numerical
representation of population." In
the west the reverse appears to be the
rule rather than the exception: When
a good man is elected to congress he
is allowed to remain but a short time

Taking the Census
Tomorrow 70,000 men and women,,
white and colored, will begin the tak
ing of the census. The United States
census bureau estimates that it has a
family of 90,000,000 men, women and
children, and it will put to work a
body of enumerators greater than the
standing army The enumeration
will cover all of the forty-five states
and two territories of the union*
proper, and also Hawai and Porto
Rico. Alaska, the Philippine islands
and Guam will not be included, as
especial arrangements are made for
numbering the people of those de
pendencies. Under the statutes
governing the work, the entire enum
eration must be completed within a
month, and in the cities the work is
limited to fifteen days, but it is not
expected that the exact population of
the whole territory covered will be
known until September. The mere
getting of the information will cost
the government $5,500,000. Of this
amount $4,500,000 will be paid to
enumerators and the remaining
$1,000,000 to supervisors.

A story is going the rounds that a
certain woman in Blue Earth not long
ago had an occasion to go to Winne
bago for a visit for a few days, upon
arrival there discovered that she had
lost her watch, a small affair, which
she thought she had dropped on the
dining room floor, which was covered
with a rug, so she wrote to the hired
girl at home as follows: "Let me
know if you find anything on the rug
in the dining room." A few days
later she received a letter from the
hired girl saying: "Dear Madam:I
was to let you know if I found any
thing on the dining room rug. This
is what I found this morning:
Thirteen empty beer bottles, nineteen
cigar butts, five cigarette ends,
fourteen blue and thirty-one red poker
chips, thirty-six hundred matches
and one pink satin slipper." The
wife hired an auto and was home in
just 27 minutes.Bricelyn Sentinel.
