BACK AND FORTH
Joe Martell Has Home
Neither in Beltrami Nor
To be bundled back and forth
from one county to another seek
ing medical aid seems to be the
late of Joe Martell, who was a
patient at St. Anthony's hospital
several days ago but who was
ordered taken to Walker, Cass
county, because the authorities
Jbere could iind no evidence ol
the man's ever having a residence
in this county. Martell it is
claimed by the Beltrami county
authorities, was injured at Cass
ak at the J. Neils Lumber com.
pany's sawmill. It is further said
that, to avoid the payment of
Martell's hospital bill by Cass
county, the man was shipped to
Bemidji. The authorities here
took charge of the man but upon
^earning that he was not a resi
dent of the county and believing
_j^a)iie had been injured at Cass
jkake,they shipped him to Walker,
Martell was brought back to Be*
jpaidji Saturday night by Deputy
Sheriff Trowbridge) the Cass
.County authorities claiming that
|je was not a resident there
kartell is in this city now, but
what disposition will be made of
'pim is unknown.

LOST THE GAME
Many Errors Made by Be
midji Men Responsible for
Victory for Superior.
A half dozen errors on the part
of Burke, second baseman for
the Bemidji team, and at least
one for nearly every other man
in the lineup, was responsible for
the Superior league team making
15 scores in the game yesterday
afternoon, while the locals only
succeeded in getting six. The
game was a very poor exhibition
and after the first inning there
seemed to be a lack of "ginger"
on both sides. Cook, the Deer
River man who was engaged to
pitch the game, showed up in
poor form and the leaguers
touched him up for 15 hits.
The Bemidji men got nine hits off
Sorenson, the Superior man.
About 400 people attended the
game, but long before the con
test was over half of them had
left the grounds disgusted with
the showing made by both teams.
Canadian Weed Spreading
All Over Say Reports
From the North.
Reports from the country sur
rounding towns located on the
M. & I. north of Bemidji are to
the effect that if they are allowed
to grow Canadian thistles will be
as thick in a few years as they
were some sections of North
Dakota several years ago. It is
stated that in the vicinity of
Blackduck and Funkley the
weeds are numerous and that a
patch can be found on almost evry
burning or tract of cut-overland.
It is the duty of village and town
ship officers to stop the spread
of thistles, but in some sections
along the M. & I. there has been
very little attentio^ paid to the
extermination of the weed.

GETS BAD INDIAN
Instigator of Bear Island Up
rising of a Year Ago Cap
tured Near Walker.
Deputy U. S. Marshall Prank
C. Tuft, who was a visitor the
city the other day, reports a
rather exciting experience which
he had not long since in arrest
ing a bad Indian near Walker.
The Indian was none other than
the famous Gay zhe gwon aush,
the instigator of the Bear Island
uprising at Leech Lake a year or
two ago which Major Wilken
son lost his life. "Gay" is a de
cidedly hard character and the
terror of all the Indian police
up north. He has been in hid
ing ever since the maasacre
and has sent several defiant
messages to the authorities
to come and get him. Ee
said there were not enough
deputy marshals in northern
Minnesota to arrest him and his
previous reputation was such
that it was generally believed
that he would never be captured
alive. The Indians had a big
war dance at Bena early in uly
and it was learned that the much
wanted Indian was with the rest
of the natives. Frank was sent
after him and was given 12 In
dian policemen to assist him but
when the time came for the show
down the escort skipped and
Frank was able to get but one of
them to get near enough to iden
tify the Indian he was after.
However, the right man was
spotted and on a bluff pure and
ed by several hundred of bis
friends, gave in like a little man
and was marched off to the depot
and taken quickly to Walker.
The capture was a risky piece of
business and no one but a man
of good nerve would have cared
for the job.
Fred Shepherd Killed In
stantly While Working
Fred Shepherd, a resident of
Hubbard county who lives about
six miles south of Becida post
office, was struck by the sweep
of a stump puller while working
near his farm and instantly
killed. Shepherd was working
company with George Still
well, another Hubbard county
resident. The two men had
fastened the end of the cable
which is attached to the stump
puller to a stump but found that
they had made a mistake in fast
ening it too high upon the stump.
The horse being used on the
machine was unhitched and the
sweep of the stump puller
swung around and struck Still
well* who was held fast between
the sweep and the puller. Shep
herd procured a crowbar and
liberated his companion, but
when the sweep of the stump
puller was loosened it swung
about and Shepherd, who was
standing directly in its path, was
struck in the side and instantly
killed. Most Northerly in United States.
Beltrami county has the uni
que distinction of being the most
northerly county in United
States proper. Of course this
does not mean that this county is
situated as far north as Alaska,
but a portion of it it extends
about forty miles north of the
49th paralled which forms the
northern boundary of the United
States from Lake of the Woods to
Puget So und or the Pacific Ocean.
There is a block of land and is
lands along the western portion
of Lake of the Woods. The block
of land contains aboat four town
ships and is attached to the
southeastern portion of Mani
toba. This part of the county is
known as the Northwest Angle.
