All Farmers and Bemidji Men Urged
To Inspect the Train and At
tend Smoker.
Have Been Mailed Out by H. C. Baer
And A. E. NelsonJJig Crowd
Fifteen directors of the commer
cial club will sit down to a banquet
served in the high school by the do
mestic science girls to the directors
and the men and women who are
coming here with the Soo line agri
cultural special on Saturday" after
noon. Following the banquet an in
formal smoker for all of the busi
ness men of Bemidji will be held in
the Commercial club rooms.
This plan of entertainment for
the visiting specialists was decided
upon at a Commercial club meeting
Tuesday evening after an .hour of
discussion 'as to the best means at
the command of the club. A formal
banquet was proposed but it was be
lieved that a meal prepared by the
domestic science girls would carry
more appeal. Each one of the direc
tors is to have one of the visitors as
his guest.
In order to thoroughly advertise,
the special and tor get-personal in
vitations to each farmer,- Secretary
Baer was instructed -to have 500
postal card announcements printed
and mailed to all farmers in this sec
tion of the country. In addition to
the cards mailed out by the Commer
cial club, A. E. Nelson, instructor in
agriculture in the high school, has
sent out post cards to a list of farm
ers and to the teachers of every rural
As the speeial train will be open
in Bemidji from 3 to 5 p. m. Satur
day, it is believed that every farmer
within a radius of ten miles will
come to the city to see this model
farm on wheels. The Soo train was
prepared by professors in the state
University who are not only expert
farmers but also expert extension
workers. The cars are being fur
nished by the Soo line but the ex
hibits are taken mainly from the
state University. The train is a com
plete farm from the barn to the kit
The train consists of eleven cars,
nine of which are filled with exhibits.
One car is used as a sleeper for the
travelers, one is used for forage and
xn is fitted up as a lecture car. Be
tween twelve and fifteen experts are
with the train and during the two
hours on Saturday that it will be
open these men will demonstrate the
new farm methods and tell of better
ways to work Beltrami county soils.
President Vincent and Dean Woods
have said that they would be with
the special two days and they have
been urged to come Friday and Sat
urday so that they can spend Satur
day in Bemidji.
The train will be the most com
plete traveling farm that has ever
visited Bemidji and the Commercial
club hopes that many farmers from
the Red Lake and M. & I. lines will
come to Bemidji Saturday to see it.
A. L. Molander will be asked to hold
the Saturday afternoon Red Lake
train so that farmers from that line
can stay to inspect the train.'
All business men of Bemidji join
with the Commercial club in urging
the farmers to come to Bemidji to
see the train. The Commercial club
rooms will be open to them all day
and they are asked to go in and
make themselves at home. Mr. Nel
son will be with the train all after
noon and wiir take an active part
in the proceedings.

Returns at press time indicate
that Judge Stanton has made a
clean sweep in Northern Minnesota
and is running strong in other por
tions of the state. His election as
chief justice has not yet been con
ceded^ but he is believed to have more
than an even chance. A special from
International Falls says that he will
have a plurality of 2,000 from that
section of Northern Minnesota.

Stanton will probably be the, next

"Jerry, The Outcast," to Be Staged
In City Hall Monday Evening
I For Benefit of Church Fond.
Next Monday night a play entitled
"Jerry, the Outcast," will be staged
in the city hall and the proceeds of
the entertainment will go to the
Catholic church. It was first pre
sented in 1888 and made a great hit
in London, New York, Chicago and
all the large cities. The play be
came so popular that hundreds of
weak imitations were started. The
original play ^was' dropped and for
several years the play .has not been
presented on the American stage.
Recently the play was recopied,
but no great attempt has been made
to introduce it on the stage. Ama
teurs have produced the play in
many cities and every place it has
been a great success.
The play opens with Sadie, carry
ing on a flirtation with some man in
the distance. As he comes nearer
she recognizes him as her mistresses
lover, Jack Worthington. Jack has
come to ask France for her hand in
marriage but she refuses to give him
any definite answer until he threat
ens to accept a position offered him
which would compel him to live in
a foreign country.
Jack hurries to France's father to
ask his permission for their wedding.
Mr. Lee immediately becomes down
cast and tells Jack of a great sec
ret which he has kept to himself for
a great many years. James Black
burn is also in love with France and
as he happened to be near and heard
what Mr. Lee said regarding France
he plans to prevent Jack's and
France's marriage for himself.
Jerry the outcast appears on the
scene and Blackburn takes advantage
of him and uses him as a tool. In
the end Blackburn.is discovered and
Jacteg^brthjtugtQiL wins France._
.The cast to characters are as fol
lows: Gerald Weston, known as "Jerry,
the tramp Al. Neuman

banker Ed. Gould

Coach Carson of the Bemidji high

ceived a letter from Coach Itoemer
of Crookston stating that the Crooks

engagement with Bemidji high next
Saturday. Rcemer states that three

it would be useless to meet as strong
opponents as Bemidji. One Crooks
ton party that was in 'Bemidji re

heard that Bemidji had taken some
men from the saw mill and started
them in to school so as to be able to
play in the Crookston game. This
is not ao, however, as every man in^
the Bemidji team are regular mem
bers of the school. Peck started in
school some time ago but he was not
taken from the mills but came of his
own accord. This game will not
count against Bemidji for the champ

a game the game is. counted for the
Last year Bemidji filled their en
gagement with Crookston on their
grounds although Bemidji's three
best players were out of the game

wishbone weather prognostication
this is taken to indicate a cold1,
winter. By the hunter it is taken to
mean that these little animals are
taking greater precautions to save
their skins. The necessity was not
so urgent in 1893. when a muskrat
skin brought from five to ten cents
as compared with present prices,
sixty to seventy cents. Comparison
of prices now and in 1893-4, made
by the Northwestern Hide & Fur

great advance in the value of pelts
of fur-bearing animals. Mink, then

City Mains Contain Lake Water and
Housekeepers Should Be Careful.
During yesterday's fire it became
necessary to pump water from the
lake into the water mains and as a
Tesult the mains throughout the city
will be somewhat contaminated with
impure water. Doctor L. A. Ward,
city health officer has issued the fol
lowing caution: "Boil all water
used for drinking purposes out of the
city mains during the next week.
The water is not considered pure and
housekeepers should take every pre
caution." i
Steps have already been taken by
some of the business men to ask the
-city council to prepare for a more
adequate water supply. At the prev

Republican state candidates carried
the county with ease.
General reports from all over the
state indicate that Stanton will be
the next chief justice as he had re
ceived a tremendous vote in the
north country and is running strong
all over the state. The landslide for_
Wilson is increasing. Taft will prob
ably carry Vermont, Idaho, Montana

Illinois only. Minnesota is still in

are that the national vote is a rec
