Navigation on the. Red Will
Soon Start—The Fast Re
cord Interesting.
Only a few more days are left be
fore the "break-up" ou the Red will
be recorded and the boats again run
ning. Some years navigation does
not open until quite late, but the pres
ent year it is expected that boats will
be running earlier than usual. The
average date for navigation to begin
on the Red river, as shown by the
records o£ the past eleven years, is
April 13. The average date for the
ice to go out l'or the same period was
April 9.
Prof. E. F. Chandler, of the State
University, in his capacity of hydro
grapher for the United States Geolog
ical survey, has come into possession
of data disclosing the dates when nav
igation opened on the Red. His figures
run back as far as 1895. They may
be of interest, so are given herewith:

The showing made by these figures
may call to mind the great flood which
accompanied the break-up in the
spring of 1897 when the Red exceed
ed her low water mark by approxi
mately 48 feet, flooding the country
for miles around in some sections.
The Marais across in Minnesota avoid
ed its regular channel and cut across
country, forming a junction with the
Red river a number of miles to the
north of this city. Farmers living
in the path of the new channel in
some cases were compelled to "take
to the woods," to make use of a slang
expression, and a number made their
homes in large trees for several days.
Th government steamer Ogama, Cap

the relief of the flood victims. In or

to le^ve the regular channel of the

Of State and County Fair Committees
and Commercial Club.
Last evening it was decided by the
committee of three, of which President
E. J. Lander is one, that A. L. Woods
should at once assume the duties of
the secretarytaryship of the Commer
cial club at once. While his selection
had been determined upon by the com
mittee sometime since, it was thought
best not to make the change in secre
taries until the return of Mr. Lander,
who was on the committee, but owing
to the fact that Mr. Woods would not
accept the secretaryship of the Com
mercial club unless he received the
other two from the fair committees
and vice versa, and as he had already
been selected by the fair committees
and the County Fair association was
anxious to get busy at once, Mr.
Woods could do nothing until the

Local Lodge Will Install Officers ui
Felicitate Saturday Evening.
The officers and members of Grand
Forks lodge B. P. O. E. No. 2$5 are
planning a real "hasty" time for the
evening of Saturday, this week. Ott
that night there will be much ado—ing.
as will lie se.n from the accompanying
enunciato. To begin with, there will
be the ceremony of installation of tfie
officers recently elected for the en
suing year. District Deputy Dlnnip
will bi! the conductor. In addition to
this there will be exemplification of
the initiatory work, with several side
line stunts which will certainly make
the eyes of the brethren gap like a
cannon's mouth.
After tlie above, and sundry other
things too enjoyable to mention, have
been laid away, there will be served
a grand banquet in the banquet hall.
In the language of Exalted Ruler
Schlaberg and Secretary F. A. Brown
to all Elks, whether members of 255 or
not, "don't be afraid—brace up, forget
the mother-in-law and come to lodge
Saturday evening."
