State Engineer Ralph Re
commends Drainage for
Approximately |100,000 acres
of swamp land in the northern
part of Minnesota have been re
claimed by the state drainage
board in the last four years at a
profit of nearly $500,000, accord
ing to the report of Engineer
George A. Ralph, filed with Gov
ernor Van Sant today. The
actual cost of this work was $81,-
Pifty-eight miles of ditches
were constructed mainly in Polk,
Kittson, Marshal, Beltrami, Wa
dena, Becker. Aitkin, Clay and
Norman counties. The benefits
to state lands amounted to $129.-
860 and to other lands $241,000.
Mr. Ralph says that most of
the counties in the Red River
valley are pretty well cared for in
the matter of drainage and that
now the commission will devote
its attention to St. Louis, Lake,
Cook, Beltrami, Itasca, Aitkin,
and other counties in the north,
eastern part of the state. He be
lieves that with the expenditure
of $50,000 in that section thous
ands of practically worthless
lands can be reclaimed at a profit
of hundreds of thousands of dol
The ditches constructed in the
year, the estimated cost, and the
benefit to the state and other
lands are as follows:

Ashburnham, Ont., April 18,
1903.I think it is only right
that I should tell you what a won
derful effect Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has produced.
The day before Easter I was so
distressed with a cold and cough
that I did not think to be able to
'take any duties the next day, as
my voice was almost choked by
the cough. The same day I re
ceived an order from you for a
bottle of your Cough Remedy.
I at once procured a sample bot
tle and took about three doses
my great reliefo
the cough and cold had completely
disappeared and I was able to
preach three times onEasterDay.
I know that this rapid and ef
fective cure was due to your
Cough Remedy. I make this tes
timonial without solicitation, be
ing thankful to have found such a
Godsent remedy. Respectfully
yours, E. A. Langfeldt, M. A.,
Rector of St. Luke's Church.

looks bright for the townsite of

prietor. He has leased part of
the land for saw mill purposes
and the erection of the plant is
being pushed as the owners are
desirous of having the mill com

being occupied and Mr.McCamus
has assurance from others who
will build in the spring. Things

A tame deer belonging to an
Itasca county homesteader who
lives about 25 miles east of Black
duck last Thursday was driven by
wolves from, the yard where it
usually staid to the dense woods
surrounding the cabin of the
homesteader and it is supposed
that the animal was devoured by
the hungry beasts, as it has not
returned to the cabin. The wol
ves entered the yard late in the
afternoon and the pack was com
posed of about twenty. After
surrounding the deer they at
tacked it, forcing it to leave the
yard and run to the woods, the
beasts running after it at the top
of their speed.
