George Barnby, Farmer,
Run Over by M. & I.
ARM SEVERED AND HEAD
Went to Sleep on Track and
Rumbling of Approaching
Train Did Not Wake Him.
George Barnby, a farmer who
lives about four miles south of
Bemidji, was run over by an M.
& I. logging train Saturday night
at 10 o'clock, sustaining a
crushed arm and a head badly
bruised and cut.
Mr. Barnby was attending a
dance at Nymore Saturday night
and started to walk home a little
before ten. He took the railway
track and instead of turning
south he kept on the track which
goes north along the east side of
the lake. It is presumed that he
became fatigued, sat down upon
the track to rest and the approach
ing train did not wake him. His
cries as the train passed over
him were heard by the conductor
and the train was stopped and he
was brought to the city on the
engine and taken to St. An
thony's hospital. He was very
weak when taken to the hospital.
An operation was performed
yesterday afternoon by Dc.
Henderson and the arm was am
putated below the elbow. He is
resting well and unless he is in
jured internally he will survive.
Country Around Tenstrike Seems
to Be Infested With Ferocious
According to reports, the coun

especially west of the city, seems
to be alive with wolves. The

from Quiring to Blackduck re
ports that the other day when he
started on his trip he heard the
howls of what seemed to be no
less than twenty beasts, and a
man whom he passed on the road
said that he had seen three in
one pack. Peter Maule was in
the city today and secured the
bounty on a wolf he had killed in
the townsite of Tenstrike and
says that their howls are heard
nightly by residents in that vi

Congressman H. Steenerson
Has Received Notice Of
OLIVER J. TAGLEY WILL BE
Convenience Will Be Much Appre
ciated by People of Bemidji
Congressman Steenerson was
last Friday notified by the post
office department that a post
office had been established at
Nymore upon his recommenda
tion and that Oliver J. Tagley
had been appointed postmaster.
The proposition of having a post
office at Nymore was taken up
last fall by the people of that
town and was pushed forward
very rapidly, although it received
considerable opposition from the
people of Bemidji. A petition
signed by nearly all the people of
the new town was presented to
Congressman Steenerson, how
ever, and their request has been
The new office will be a great
convenience to the people of Ny
more, as formerly they were
compelled to come to Bemidji for
their mail, a distance of over a
mile. All the inhabitants of the
new town will feel considerable
elated over the establishment of
the office, although it will de
tract somewhat from the busi
ness done at the local postoffice.

HOW "BILL CARLI" SQUELCHED
A DISCIPLE OF BRYAN.
Wherein Also is Portrayed The
Joy of The "Bull Cook"
Big Meadows, August 7
I see your paper is boostin for
Rob Dun all the time and I thot
mabe you wood like to no what
is goin on out in the woods re
gardin your canidate. Yester
day we got a 8 foot head on the
dam and a drivin crue come up.
They broke the landin in the
mornin and come up to the camp
for dinner and here my storie be
Jack Smith the boys call him
Sunset Smith he is always talkin
politiks so he gets into a argu
ment with the bull cook Swanson
Jack hes a dimicrat and he beat
Swanson because Swanson. aint
posted them jacks he keeps it
up durin dinner tellin how his
party was the rite one for us
jacks and the workin man and all
that and if the dimicrats put up
a good man agin Dun we all ott
to vote for him.
I see Bill Carli lookin at Sun
set purty sharp 2 or 3 times Bill
was in charg of the crue-hes 1 of
the best drivers on the upper
misisipi and he will take a long
shot on savin a mans life in the
water he aint a man of much
words but hes there with the
talk all rite if ocashin demands
it. Well Bill he finished grub
and lit his pipe and settled back
on a bench all the time eying
Sunset. I see hewTasgetin

to hist his gates and do some
slusin and Sunset he see it to,
and he got rattled perty soon

ugh ses Bill them is your dimi
cratic properous times and you
want us to go back to them.
Now ses Bill to Sunset you

tarifs and all that I no you dont
no much about drivin logs, I
wooldnt send you on to a dan
gerus spot in a jam unles it was
to get you killed and get rid of a
dimicrat, now ses Bill if you

gait your doctrins because the
lumber jacks aint no fools they
dont want to go back to dimi
cratic times and have the inside
of their stumicks glued to
their back bone for the want of
somethin to eat. Bob Dun is our
man and he will take care of our
lean law for us.
Well Bill he dumped the ashes
out of his pipe and Sunset he
took a sneak and he didnt dast
to even tackle the bull cook after
that and Swanson he was tickled
because Sunset got beet.
They aint no dimicrats in our
crue and I dont think there is
any amon the lumber jacks.

want no oners and he didnt no
he wood be qnoted to the pubick
pres but thot his argument was
convincin and you ott to have it.
Your esteamed corespondent

interior department, located at
Crookston, but well known in

Two deeds were recorded at
the register of deeds office dur
ing the day. One was given by
John McDougald of Blackduck
to Maria Mitchell and involved
the sale of 160 acres of land in
township 149-31. The consider
ation was $1100. The trustees
of the First Presbyterian church
of Bemidji transferred a church

Reports from all sections of
Beltrami county indicate that
ducks will be very plentiful this
fall, as the season has been ideal
for their breeding. The wild
rice crop is one the best ever seen
in this section. Parties are
already making preparations for
excursions to the lakes and rivers
in this vicinity and it is expected
that when the season opens a
large number of hunters will par
take in the sport.
Very Light Vote.
Indications of a very light vote
at the primary election are re
ported from many towns through
out the county. The reason for
this is that many of the home
steaders who are eligible to vote
are going out to the harvest field
anJ will not return in time to be
present to vote at the primaries.
In the town of Buzzle it is re
ported that not more than eight
or ten votes will be cast.
Blackduck Swells Out.
The Blackduck base ball team
is getting chesty and wants a
game with the Bemidji second
nine or any other nine it can put
up. The Blackduck boys have
been practising for some time
and it is said that they have a
very creditable aggregation. It
is probable that a game will be
arranged in the near future.

John Kirsch, the mail clerk
