BIRDS AND FISH
An Exhibit by Game and Fish Com
mission at Fair.
In former years the state game and fish
commission has been hampered in making
an exhibition at the state fair by lack
of space, but this year the fish and the
birds will have a building all to them
selves. R. Fullerton, executive agent, has
arranged for the building formerly known
as the "women's building," and he and
his deputies have been very busy placing
and arranging the fish and birds for fair
week. Th e work was so far advanced
yesterday as to admit of water's being
turned into the huge aquariums in which
the fish are to show themselves both day
and night. There will be five kinds of
trout, all of them big fellows, represent
ing white, German, brown-spotted, steel
head, rainbow and land-locked salmon va -
rieties. There will be a lot of each va
riety and their neighbors will be bass,
pike, pickerel, crappies and several other
varieties of lake fish that the state is
interested in propagating. The silver
eels that are to occupy one of the aqua
riums -are likely to interest the children
especially. The game birds of the state
cannot be shown alive, but the stuffed
specimens are lifelike. A large number
of specimens of birds and fish from the
muse um at the state fish hatchery will
be a part of the exhibit and photographs
that were taken at numerous places by the
warden and his deputies, will be laid out

Mrs. G. O. Foss and daughters Misses
Lota and Marcia, 503 Fifteenth avenue SE,
have juet returned from a most interesting
trip thru a number of border towns of wes

dertaken for the benefit of Miss Lota Foss
who will be graduated from the engineering
department of the university next spring.
Among the most interesting places they vis
ited was Frank, in the eastern part of Brit
ish Columbia, where the Turtle mountain
slide occurred. The slide is now from 5 to
00 feet deep and is of gravel and sandstone
and limestone. Miss Foss examined the stone
with a view of ascertaining the causes of
the explosion. There are guards about Ihe
place now and no one is allowed to go near.
The Minneapolis visitors had a large' num
ber of photographs of the scene prepared.
There are many na,tior.alit:es at Frank and
strangely enough they remain entirely dis
tinct. Altho the men lead a very rough life,
everywhere the utmost courtesy was shown
Mrs. Foss and her daughters. They visited
Morrissey, Fernie, Michel, the largest min
ing town there, and Blamour, where there are
lime quarries, all in the vicinity of Frank.
While at Balr.our they watched the prospec
tors drilling for oil and some vary good sam
ples were obtained'. During their trip they
traveled night and day, lived chiefly on beans
and cheese when the rode., Some times they

To determine the Impurity caused by
Chicago's drainage canal, th ru " which
water from the lake carries the city's
sewage into the Illinois river, the water at
forty points between Chicago and St.

a number of months by three scientific

show conclusively that running water
purifies itself. The water in the mouth
of the Illinois river is purer th an that of

That the turning of the waters of Lake

'-*- : jjgj.^
Wind Interferes With Medal Play
for State Golf Champion-
C. T. Jaffray With 84 Appears to
Have Low Score WonVet-
A wind so heavy that at times it seri
ously affected the putting, militated
against low scores this morning in the
qualifying round at medal Pl&y for the
state golf championship at the Town and
Country club. From the size of the first
few scores turned in, it looked as if 94
or 95 would qualify for the championship
cup. Some of the early scores ran as
high as 120. Jaffray came in with 43 for
the first round. Bend, the champion took
49. F . N. Greer of Mlnikahda made the
first round in 42, equaling bogey. The
players were slow in coming in, but at
1:30 it looked as if Lawhead, Bend, Jaf
fray, Greer, Doran, Finch, Legg and Mil
ler were certain to qualify for the cham
pionship. The prize for low score in the
qualifying round appeared to belong to
Jaffray, who made the 18 holes in 84, the
second round in 411 better than bogey.

MINIKAHDA MEN WIN
Jaffray and Marfield Capture Pioneer Press
Minikahda golfers came to the fore yes
terday afternoon in the state tournament
at the Town and Country club. Jaffray and
Marfield winning the Pioneer Pre ss trophy
handily. The Minikahda club will now
have the custody of this trophy for a
Cold, raw weather and a high wind made
good golf difficult both in the morning and
in the afternoon. In the Pioneer Press
cup contest, a Scotch foursome, the best
ball of Jaffray and Marfleld, which won
the trophy, was 79, and the second best
score was made by Bend and Dorah of
Town and Country, 81. Albert and Brooks
of Minikahda were third with 83.
A feature of the day was the showing
of the "kids," who, for the first time,
were a factor in a state competition. Fol
lowing Harry Legg's brilliant performance
in the morning, McClure and Campbell of
Merriam Park made a best ball score of
40 in the first round of the afternoon event.
This score for the nine holes was only
equaled by three teams and beaten by ^one
in the two rounds. The three youngsters
nam ed promise to develop into remarkable
The greens, which were slow in the
morning after the rain, were considerably
faster in the afternoon, when the contest
for the Press trophy was started. Jaffray
and" Marfield turned in a score of 40 for the
first round. This team, and Bend and
Doran, were favorites for the event, and
the judgment of the gallery was vindicated
when the St. Paul pair ca me in with 41.
McClure and Campbell were the only other
,pa,ir whose best ball beat the bogey of
the course. In the second round Jaffray
and Marfield made a 39, making their total
79. It was then evident that only Bend
and Doran had a good chance to beat out
the Minikahda experts, but the best the
St. Paul men could do on their second
round was 40. McClure and Campbell fell
down badly in this round, McClure losing
his ball and forcing Campbell to complete
the course alone, which he did for 46.
Harold Bend, the present champion, on
the form he showed yesterday, as well as
during the season, is picked to win the
tournament. His feat yesterday morning,
when he finished the 18. holes 2 up on
bogey, under very unfavorabffe conditions,
was remarkable. Jaffray is second choice
for the championship. Lawhe ad also is
playing a strong game. Doran, Gardi
ner, Miller and Finch of Town and Coun
try, Thayer, Corse and Marfield of Mlni
kah da and Bolcom and Youmans of
Meadowbrook promise to be factors in the
result. Legg of Bryn Mawr is expected
to make a good showing, but will hardly
win against such an array of veterans.

So great has the pressure of business
become on the Minesota division of th^
Northern Pacific that General Superlni'
tendent Gilbert has ordered a rearrange
ment of the division into two divisions
after Oct. 1.
The lower portion of the old division will
be designated the St. Paul division and
will consist of the main line as far aa
Staples, the Little Falls branch as far
as Bralnerd, the Little Falls and Dakota
branch, and also the lines to Whi te Bear
and Stillwater, and the Minneapolis cut
off. This wil be in charge of M. M. Fow
The other portion of the division will re
tain the name of the Minnesota division
and will extend from Staples to Fargo,
and will also include the Red River branch
and the Fergus Falls branch. This divis
ion will be in charge of H. A. Sovereign,
assistant superintendent at Staples.

One of the principal reasons for the extremely
low prices which are in force in this August sale
is to make known to still greater numbers the un
equalled excellence of our Furs. We intend that
every article sold during this sale will be instru
mental in increasing the sales throughout this sea

substantiate our claim of lowest prices.
