the State Game and Fish commission, has made answer as follows to the article printed in the St. Paul Pioneer Press and reproduced in the Pioneer: 'The only way we can provide any hunting for the poor man is to make game plentiful and any thing which restricts the shooting will have that effect,' is the answer of Carlos Avery, executive agent of the state game and fish commission, to the statement made by Deputy County Auditor James Drummond that the new law which makes the season open Sept. 7 in stead of Sept. 1, hurts the poor man. The reason given was that Labor day, which comes on the first Mon day in September, gave the ordinary workmgman or clerk a holiday of two days or three if he counts Satur day afternoon, which would enable him to go for a hunting tiip. "The new law makes the season open this year the day after Labor day." 'in the first place, said Avery, it is unlawful to hunt on Sunday any way, as hunting is one of the things prohibited in the Sabboth observ ance law. But that is not in the game laws, and we have not consid ered it our duty to enforce that law. If it were enforced it would be one of the greatesr aids in the protection and increase of game.

Representative Mattson intro duced that bill. "His idea was that the birds get stronger by that time, the hot weather is over and the harvest is done. In the northern pirt of the state, where the best hunting is found, there is often a great deal of grain standing Sept. 1, and the hunters do considerable damage going through the fields. 'Then we learned that North Dakota had passed a law opening the season Sept. 7, and the date in this state was made to correspond, as it is always desirable to have the laws of that character uniform with those of other states.' "Mr. Avery admitted that the change would prevent a good many hunters from enjoping the double holiday in their favorite sport, but he thought this would be confined to the larger cities, and would not effect the smaller cites and rural districts where Labor day is not ob served. He thought that it had not occured to the committee in the legislature that the change of date would spoil a two-day holiday for many hunters. He tried to figure out that some years Labor day would come after the hunting season, but the best he could figure out was that about every seventh year the man who takes the two-day trip will be allowed to hunt on Monday, but not on Saturday or Sunday." took place whereby Robt.

Bemidji won the first gatnlf, which was played in this citv, and Cass Lake took the other two, which were both played at Cass Lake. The locals are determined to try and even up the series by taking tomorrow's con test. The Cass Lake team has aband oned the idea of touring the north half of the state with their players, being unable to arrange a satisfac tory schedule of games. And then Grady, up and got married, you know, which disconcerted his team mates considerably. "HAD TIME OF MY LIFE OUT WEST," SAYS MG'NAB The Genial "Andy" Saw Many i*r i A Ok, Old Friends, Some Having Lived in Bemidji. Andy McNabb, the bonny Scot who has friends by the score, has returned from an extended trip through the northwestern states, where, according to his own state ment, he had "the time of his life," Mr. McNabb went to the Seattle exposition and saw everything at the "big show" that was worth while and he says the much-touted exposi tion will not compare with our own Minnesota State Fair in the matter of exhibits. The most pleasant feature of the trip was the visit at Muckelteo, Washington, with his aged mother, whom he had not seen for several years. Mrs. McNabb is still quite hearty, at jthe advanced age of 92 years. He visited Coeur D'Alene and registered at the drawings of lands, getting "triple O," as he puts it being "nit." At Sand Point, Idaho, he met several old-time Bemidji friends, by whom he was given a royal welcome and treated like a prince. William Hubbard and family are located at Sand Point and are doing finely. Mr. Hubbard is conducting a moving picture and vaudeville theater John Hubbard is singing for the show and "making good," in fact is a sen sation there. Miss Hubbard is also at Sand Point and doing very well. Colonel and Mrs. Whittel are also at Sand Point, and their local friends will be pleased to know that they are prospering. "$4&"Ur Chris Christenson, who formerly conducted the Beltrami County News in this city, and who has of late been running the Union (Ore gon) Scout, was encountered at Sand Point. 'Tis said Chris has sold his interest in his latest venture and will locate at Billings, Montana, where Joe Markham will also locate. According to Andy, Frank Beaton is living on a big cattle ranch at Boise, Idaho, with his mother and is doing remarkably well. At Sand Point, Andy met old friends whom he used to know in Michigan and whom he Bad not seen for twenty years. The meeting was a great surprise to both Mr. McNab and his old-time neighbors. "WeU, 'twas the best time I ever had in my life," said Andy. NEW BRINKMAN THEATER TO BE OPENED MONDAY Splendid Quadruple Bill of Vaudeville Stars Will Inaugurate Season of Entertainment. The Grand formal opening of the New Brinkman Family Theater will be held next Monday and Tuesday evenings, when the greatest vaude ville and moving-picture entertain ments ever attempted in this part of the state will be given. The new theater, which has been entirely renovated, enlarged and rearranged on the interior, will be completed in every detail. The new commodious stage will be fully equipped with new scenery and the many comfortable opera chairs will be in use and every convenience provided by a modern, up-to-date theater will be found at the new Brinkman. Manager Brinkman has provided ar exceptionally strong bill for the opening nights. The headliners are the Washer Brothers, the boxing midgets, Europe's greatest novelty. They are the smallest men on earth, and their act is a side-splitter. Tobie Clark, billed as the cleverest juvenile performer on the American stage, is another special attraction. He is the hit of the season on the vaudeville circuit. Castellat & Hall, in their laugh able comedy skit, "A Friend from Wall Street," will undoubtedly make friends from the start. The skit was written by the famous author, George M. Cohan, and is a laugh-producer, all through. "The Kentucky Blackbirds," Kentucky's champion cakewalkers,' are singing and dancing comedians who come heralded as the best colored people who have ever been on this circuit. The moving pictures will be es pecially attractive and pleasing, while the illustrated songs will be of the best. This will give a performance without an equal in northwestern vaudeville, and one that will meiit crowds at both performances each night. There will be two shows, com mencing promptly at 7:15 p. m. No reserved seats first come, first choice. The performance at the Brinkman this evening will be especially good. Five people will do the vaudeville "stunts," and the whole show will be better than ever. Come early. Band Finished Concert Indoors. The band boys attempted to give their concert at the stand on the dock, but the weather was so un propitious that they adjourned to the armory, where the concert was finished. With the new players whom Pro fessor Masten is adding to the band, Bemidji will soon have the very best musical organization in this section of the state, barring none. Trap Shoot Sunday, 2 P. M. The Bemidji Rod and Gun Club will hold their shoot at 2:00 o'clock Sunday afternoon instead of at 9 o'clock in the forenoon as formerly held.- All members and friends of the Club are requested to be present.

The term will be held at Baudette, beginning next Tuesday, and there promises to be considerable litiga tion. Judge C. W. Stanton of this city will preside. The judge and Clerk of Court Rhoda will go from Bemidji to Baudette by way of International Falls. The court calendar is being printed, having been closed today. There are eighteen civil cases on the calendar, with no criminal causes to try at this session. The cases are being handled by attorneys living tmtside Bemidji, with the exception of one Gibbons & Torrance heing counsel in one case. Terms of court for the north end of Beltrami county were made possible by the passage of a special act of the legislature last winter, whereby one or more terms could be held at Baudette, and if desired the terms could be alternated be tween the village of Baudette and Spooner, which places are bitter rivals. Because of the difficulty in reach ing Bemidji from Spooner and Baudette and other northern points, there has been much complaint for the past two years among the north-country people as to the big SPIENGID SHOWING MADE AT ITASCA STATE PARK Superintendent Heinzelman Has Been TERM OF DISTRICT COURT TO BE HELD AT BAUDETTE Will Begin Next Tuesday, and Judge Stanton Will Preside.

There's as much difference in lumber as there is in shoes or clothes, and you don't buy those with your eyes shut, do you? As lumber is supposed to last a long time, quality should be the first consideration in buying.
