The large reservoirs maintain
ed by the government at Leech
Lake, Wuuubigoshish and other
points on the upper Mississippi,
are causing much worry to resi
dents of the north country as
well a? people who live on the
river bHow the site of the dams.
In fact, there is a fight on be
tween the northern and southern
portion.- of the state, the north
country people demanding that
the rnaintainence of the reser
voirs he ceased, while those of
the south declare that they are a
public necessity.
This year there has been a
large amount of lands located
along the river above the dams
overflowed, and owners of the
land claim that the overflow is
caused by the operation of the
dams, n-ti the water is held back
to such an extent that the water
reaches level above the banks

Theodore Larsen, Who Con
fessed Murder of Nels Nel
son Changes Story.
Crookston Times: Theodore
Larsen, the confessed murderer
of Nels Nelson in this city Nov
ember 16, '1904, has turned his
tale and now denies any complic
ity whatever in the crime which E.
he has said to have confessed to.
Larsen day before yesterday ex
hibited a pronounced change of
heart, and turned directly
around in his statements, saying
that whatever he had stated
while under the influence of
liquor, or while his mind was
wobbly, was entirely foreign to
his memory and not correct.
He has in other words denied
the truthfulness of his own writ
ten confession made before a
justice of the peace at Nor,thome
in which he states point blank
and before witnesses that he
killed Nelson in this city, some
time in November. The change
in his demeanor is a startling
surprise to the authorities^ but
of what use it will be to the ac
cused is hard to determine. His
affidavit confessing the murder
of Nelson is in the possession of
the county officials, and it will be
hard for him to prove that he
was not of sound mind whea
appending his name to the in
strument, as several witnesses
as well as the justice of the peace
were present at the time.
Further than that he has related
his story of the tragedy, in the
identical style and manner five
or six times to various people of
Northome and to Sheriff Gonyea.

The annual meeting of the
electors of Independent School
District No. 7 for the purpose of

transaction of such other busi
ness as mayproperly come before

ing commencing at 7 o'clock.
The election of new officers to
the school board is a matter in
which every citizen of the city

voters should turn out and elect
the right men for the positions.
Pew candidates have an
nounced themselves. E. P, Craw

bers of the board, has an
nounced that he will be a can
didate for re election for the
.term of one year, and A. A. War
field and J. P. Lahr will ask the
voters to support them for three
year terms. Each of the above
men are prominent in business
circles of the city and will no
doubt make excellent school offi
cers if tney are chosen.

You can easily determine if your kid

is cloudy or milky or has a brick-dust
sediment or small particles float about
in it, your kidneys are diseased, and

C. B. BariiMt of Carlisle Center, N. Y., writes:
I "About four years ago I wrote you stating that
I had beea entirely cured of a severe kidney

Naval Recruiting Station Be
ing Established in Be
midji Today,
Capt. George Thorpe, in charge
of the naval recruiting stations
in Minnesota and the two Da
kotas, is in the city today from
St. Paul to establish a branch
office in Bemidji. The establish
ment of the station will be made
at once, but about a week will
elapse before an officer will ar
rive to take charge of the station.
Bemidji is regarded as one of the
most promising cities for secur
ing recruits in this section of the
northwest, owing to its location
in the midst of a large number of
lumber camps, and it is thought
that a large number of men may
be secured for the service here.
Capt. Thorpe states that the
naval seryice is pernaps the most
interesting of any of the U. S.
government. The term of en
listment for men now being se
cured in Minnesota and the Da
kotas is four years. After a
recruit has first been accepted
he is sent to the navy yard at
San Francisco, where he receives
his preliminary training. Prom
there he goes to sea in one of the
large battleships, serves at one
of the navy yards on the Atlantic
or Pacific coast, or is sent to one
of the island possessions of the
United States. No recruit is
given isolated service.
A number of the men in charge
of sub stations under Capt.
Thorpe have been all over the
world twice during their first
term of enlistment, some having
taken caravan voyages into the
heart of Africa.
At the present time there are
12 offices being operated in
Minnesota and North and South
Dakota. Three of these are cen-

Much Land Being Benefitted
by Drainage Ditch in
Swamp Near Kelliher.
Special Agent Cornwall of the
interior department has returned
to Bemidji from a land inspecting
tour in the vicinity of Kelliher.
Mr. Cornwall during his travels
had occasion to cross the Kelliher
ditch, which extends from Kelli
her in the direction of Shotley.
The ditch has been completed
for a distance of about two and
one-half miles and it is already
doing much good to land in the
swamp tributary to it. For a
distance of a quarter of a mile on
each side of the ditch the land
is practically dry and the water
now flowing through the ditch
has a current of about twovmiles
an hour. The ditch is eight feet
wide and two feet deep.
