Every householder prides
himself upon his ability—
when occasion demands—
to handle a hammer, saw
or chisel—upon a knack of
driving an "emergency
nail" or of doing most any
sort of a can't wait job."
He realizes that in the
commonest odd-job about
the house he needs tools—
that a mere "pair of
hands" are not enough.
Man being a *tool«u^ng
animal*" discovers, too, that,
in his daily life he needs*
tools not made of steel

implements—mental ham
men, saws squares, bits,
chisels, planes—and the
knack of using them. These
tools are "merely ways and
means" o( repairing little,
losses, finding lost things,
securing jpnants or help,
quickly selling property
personal or real—and they

The other night when the wind howl
ed and the cold, stinging air made
pedestrians hurry along the streets
and huddle closer into the big collars
of their great coats, the Man About
Town was plodding along homeward
with the
when a shivering, cring­
ing and hungry looking dog of uncer
tain age and apparently plebeian an
cestry stole up to bis side, looked
wistfully up into his face with such a
look of appeal- that, cold as It was, the
Man stopped to' give the old. fellow
a friendly pat on the head. The overa
ture was greeted with evident apre
"Clatlon and it was easy to be seen that
the cUr was old, cold and hungry, a
waif and wanderer. Just an old dog,
that was all. The Man slipped a dime
into the market-man's hand for the
scraps he wrapped up for him and the
old dog followed in anticipation. A
good feed and a warm nest was later
secured for him. in the morning
when the^Man dropped around to the
barn where "Tramp" had been left, the
old dog lay there stretched out cold
in death. Too much food or too much
cold, or both it was all over and we
said as we walked away—just an old
dog, poor cur. Men grow old, too.
A certain married man whose name
is withheld by the Man About Town
because of his sensitive nature has a
little boy who loves his papa dearly
(as all little
should). This little
boy attends Sunday schbol and has
learned many things of sacred'history,
the other day he came home after at
tending Sunday Bchool and thought

God is a good man, ain't he?" "Yes,
my child, God is very good to
those who obey him." "He's an awful,
awfully good man, ain't he, grandma?"
"Yes, dearie, he is very good, to us

The clerk, a good fellow and full of*

Don McDonald: Present ^indications
are that there will be a large' crowd
at the Undertakers' convention which
meets Jan. 31 in this city. There will
be sortie serious work done, the con
vention having more the appearance of
a school than of anything else. There
has been no change in the program
published a few days ago in The
Evening Times.
Grand Forks Citizen: I am pleased
to note that some of the citizens of
Grand Forks, are anxious to have a
city weighmaster and city scales. The
move is iq the right direction and I
hope the ^proposed ordinance may go
through. I do not know that I am
getting short weight or short measure,
but I would like to have a chance to
find out. If we are all getting a
square deal on weights and measures,
1 can see no reason why the matter
might not be carried out with no ob
iections on the part of anyone. The
toll will pay the expense of mainte
nance and there should be no objec
tion on the part of the honest man

J. B. Wineman: I am glad that the
newspapers have called the attention
of the people of the county to the fact
that the failure to meet the require
ments of the law relative to fire es

leaves them liable to judgment for
'oss of life or injuries resulting from
fires in such buildings and that they
may further be prosecuted for man
A Railroad Man: It is something
astonishing the number of senseless
questions which we are called upon
to anftwer. A lady called up yester
iay and asked when the 5 o'clock
train Would be in. I told her at 5
o'clock, and then she asked me if it
was late. I had to refrain from what
thought and assure her that it was
on time.
District Attorney Foley recently re
ceived a letter from Hutchins, which
purported to have been written at
Hong Hong, China, but^ the .envelope
was postmarked from a town in Cana
da. The letter stated that the writer
vas on a foreign mission and there
was a possibility that he would not
return to Superior to confronts very
grave charge which was held over
him. Mr. Foley said the charge would
be held against Hutchins and every
possible endeavor made to bring him
to justice.
Hutchins first figured "in the police
circles 6f Superior when he was mar
ried to Miss Millie Menqui8t, of St.
Oloud, by Justice of the Peace French
in September last. It was subse
quently learned by Miss Mellquist's
parents in St. Cloud that Hutchins
had a wife^ and seven children living
in Crookston. The facts of his second
matrimonial venture came out when
Hutchins wrote to wife No. 1, of-this
city, tellihg of his. latest escapade and
asking forgiveness.
Instead of acquiescing in the plans
of the erring husband, wife No. 1 In
formed the police of his unfaithful
ness, which resulted in Hutchins' ar
rest at Duluth, where he had been em
ployed at a leading hotel.
Hutchins was subsequently taken to
Superior, where the charge of bigamy
was lodged against him. After sever
al days at .the county jail, friends
came to his rescue and secured his
release on bail. During his prelimin
ary trials in the lower court Hutchins
was defended .by Attorney W. P. Craw

S. Collins: I notice by the dis
patches from Chicago that the saloon
licence has been raised from $500 to
$1,000 in that city. I wonder 'how
much that increases the revenue of
the city. If the saloons are as thick
in Chicago as they are in East Grand
Forks, there must be about 10,480.
At $500 apiece would be an increase
of $5,240,000 to tlie income of the
city. It is further stated that this
increased revenue will be used in in-,
creasing the police force. At $75 a
month this would give an addition to
the force of more than 5,800 men.
That aught to help some.
Judge McLaughlin: I notice that
many of the people of the city are very
slack about. shoveling the snow off
(their walks. It is quite a job to keep
the walks cleared such weather as
this and it really ought to be attend
ed to by the wards. In most cities,
especially in the residence and subur
ban portions, the street commission
ers attend to cleaning the walks. It
is done by means of a team and a
"V'-shaped arrangement hauled with
the point foremost. It is heavily
weighted and does excellent work. It
keeps the paths broad enough for any
purpose and the bottoms of them,
smooth and hard. It beats a high, nar
row pat^ by several laps.
•Self-Styled Detective Forfeits
Bond in Superior Court.
The following from a Duluth paper
relative to the case of Tom HUtchins,
(he erstwhile person, will be of in
terest to Grand Forks people.
T. S. Hutchins, charged with big
amy, did not put in appearance when
lis case was called in the Superior
•uiicipal court yesterday and the
$500 cash bail he, had put up to guar
intee his presence on the call of the
:ase was declared forfeited, as was
predicted in a rumor published in the
Times of recent date.
It had been intimated for some time
that Hutchins would prefer forfeit of
bail money rather than face a trial,
herefore his absence came as no sur
prise to the Superior authorities.
Bales of the Contest
A big membership campaign was
sianed on December 28, 1905. All
boys Who were then members were dl-:
vided into two teams, called the Reds
and JBlqes and captained respectively
by Taylor Thompson and Bert Crary.
We want three hundred members in
the Boys' Department by March 1st,
and that means everyone must hustle.
Besides a big Bocial evening at the
finish of the race, for all hew mem
bers as well as those who bring in
members, the following individual, of
fers are made: To the boy securing
the. greatest number of points over 30,
a trip to the Boys' Summer Camp with
all expenses paid.. To the boy getting
the next largest number of points
over 20, a Gold Association Pin. To
the boy getting the next largest num
ber of points over 15, a Silver Asso
ciation Pin. And to every boy secur
ing one new member a seat at a ban
quet to be given March 9th. Every
boy joining during the campaign will
get a seat. Each five dollar members
secured counts five points and each
$2.50 member counts two and one half
points.—The Echo.
Northwestern Phone Company Ex-"
The Northwestern Telephone Ex
change company, which recently
bought out the Iron Range company
of this city, has largely increased its
mileage throughout the northwest by
extensive construction work during
the past few months, has now secur
ed control of the Minnesota Central
Telephone company whose general
offices are located at Willmar. The
deal involves the1 taking over of about
2,000 miles of lines in a territory
covering about 200 miles In the west
ern and southwestern portions of tlie
state. The Minnesota Central com
pany was organized in 1897 with D.
N. Tallman as president. Its capital
stock was placed at $50,000. The ex
traordinary growth of the telephone
business in the territory comprehend
ed by its lines has made the property
Very valuable, and it is said "that a

"The .Echo" At Y. M. C. A.
The Boys Department of the Y. M.
C. A. have issued Vol. 1 and No. 1 of
a little leaflet called "The Echo." It
is a breezy little sheet and according
to the fore-word will be published
"every once in a while." The fore
word reads in part: The first issue of
the Echo was so well received by
the members of the Boys' Department
and the association and public in gen
eral that we feel justified in announc
ing it as a permanent publication in
the Boys' Department. We cannot ex
pect to 'meet the requirements of all
at the outset but we are going to do
our best and hope our little paper
will succeed in setting before the pub
lic a little of the work being done
for the boys, of Grand Forks. The
paper is the product of the Y. M. C. A.
printing office. The boys doing all
the work themselves including com
position and press work.
Will Play at Devils Lake.
John Carl the manager of the Foss
ton Juvenile band passed through the
city this morning enroute home from
Devils Lake where he has conferred
with the managers of the Chautauqua
association and has completed ar
rangements for the band to furnish
music for the full Season the coming
summer. The Fosston band is recog
nized as a good one and there is no
doubt but they will make good with
the North Dakota people. It is a fine
opportunity for the boys to get an
annual outing and they will undoubt
edly enjoy the vacation.
Brazil's Beautiilul Woods.
Beautiful Brazil woods are recom
mended to capitalists. Cabinet woods
of many kinds abound, are easy to
reach, and fairly easy to get. Because
of the lack of enterprise among the
Brazilians only small quantities have
been exported. Communication with
the woods is bad, freights and wages
are high. An American company with
$5,000,000 is beginning to exploit some
of the best regions. It hopes to over
come obstacles by the application of
modern milling and transportation
methods. An elevated swinging rail
road will carry the logs from the
woodB to the mills, which are to be lo
cated near or on good roads.
Had Lost Six Souls.
A clergyman whose people had had
many dissensions and quarrels among
themselves fhet a brother clergyman
and told him with much feeling that
his church people had just experienced
a most earnest "revival." The brother
clergyman wistfully asked: "How
•many souls, dear brother, were added
to your flock?" With keen satisfaction
came the reply: "Not one we got rid
of six."
Disraeli and the Dukes.
Another Disraellan reminiscence
occurs. After a banquet, at which a
line of particularly illustrious no
bodies preceded the premier from the
dining-room, he took the arm of his
neighbor and, pointing to the backs
of the retreating dukes and mar
quises, said, drily: "Next week I shall
be making some of those."

Weather wise prophets are issalag

Mars. The most tumultuous tempests
that the elements offer the earth
dweller are holidays compared with
the storms of two weekB and again of
41 days in length which Prof. Pickor
ing of Harvard has found raging
around Martians. vThe clouds ait Mttrs
are always light yellow. The desert
regions are a darker shade of yel.ow.
Long duration of storms and long
clear intervals between are character
istics of Martian weather. One possi
ble reason for the great meteorologi
cal changes is the greater tenuity of
atmosphere there. Mars presents vast

looking towards earth, would find that

New Fl'elds for Chinamen.
Chinamen in New York are constant
ly broadening the field of their activi
ties. Already many of them are em
ployed as household servants and valets
and a few days ago one of them opened
up an American tailor shop. Not a few
bave gone into the stationery and to
bacco business in a small way. The first
Chinese tailor to open an.atelier In New
York Is Yum-Chuun, originally of Fu
Chau and latterly of San Francisco. "I
like not that Pacific so much as that
Atlantic," he said confidentially to the
Oriental traveler who met him in China
town the other day. "They no like
Chinaman in Cala, no matter if he high
or low caste. I meet one rich Joss man,
him bishop you call, and He say come
along New York with me you no like
this place. So I come by me by."
Feat of Greek Scholar.
It may safely be said that no feat of
translation in any age has never
equaled that achieved by Prof. Jebb
in rendering Browning's "Abt Vogler"
into Greek verse. This fine soliloquy
of the musician is less obscure, no
doubt, than many other of its author's
productions, but it abounds in imag
ery and in turns of thought which even
an Englishman finds it not very easy
to follow and of which he could hard
ly have conceived it possible that any
Greek equivalents should exist. Yet
they did exist, for Jebb found them,
though it may be doubted whether any
other Greek scholar living would have
been equally successful in his search.
