"We should worry". Monkeys
never do, probably because they live
in ignorance of old Darwin's story.

Champion monopoly state of the

President of the Massachusetts
State Senate has requested members
to eliminate slang from the proceed

place of "graft" Ex.
A new idea has been advanced in
certain states to more easily detect
the get-away criminal. It is to show
the full length figure, walking,
standing, running, getting up or
sitting down and in various charac
teristic poses. It might be better
to get a moving picture showing how
the habitual criminal gets away.
The Lodge of Elks.
Last Thursday evening the local
lodge of B. P. O. E. initiated into the
order fifteen new members most of
them from International Falls. It was
a splendid advertising feature for the
city of Bemidji as well as for the
Elks. The men from the border city
were favorably impressed by the city
and even more deeply impressed by
the reception given them.
The Benevolent and Protective Or
der of Elks is as broad in its rules,
precepts and requirements as the
American continent. It excludes
none who are worthy. It inclules
within its membership men of all na
tionalities, sects and creeds. While a
secret organization, there is nothing
that opponents of secret societies, can
It is founded upon the great prin
ciples of Charity, Brotherly Love and
Good Will to Men. Relieving the poor
and distressed, aiding and encourag
ing brother members and caring for
their widows and orphans, is a car
dinal principle of the Order.
It cherishes no animositiesit fos
ters no enmities.
Two Thousand or One?
That block of land in the heart of
Chicago which Hiram Pearson bought
of Uncle Sam in 1836 for $410 and
which is now held at $12,000,000 is
worth another thought.
The average income throughout
the United States of families of five
where father earns the living is
about $600. This small piece of land
returns in net income to its present
owners as much money as has to sup
port 2,000 wage-earning families.
But with an important difference:
The men who get this income do
not earn it.
They literally do nothing for it.
They did not MAKE the land or
the city about the land and they
have not improved the. land. Their
tenants have built the buildings,
paid the taxes, kept up the repairs.
It is easy to see why a man and his
wife and their children who buy a
piece of ground and' put their very
lives into digging it, seeding it, fer
tilizing it, making it yield, should be
entitled to reap the fruits of their
But the owners of this- Chicago
piece of land never planted a spade
or a seed in it never lifted a finger
to work it. Society did all the Improv
ing that was done to it but the value
which society created society is not
getting-ridlers are getting it all.
Now- here is a question to mull
Why should 2,000 families have to
work like Sam Htll to earn their $600
a yore white one or two families, not
working at all, are allowed to split
And if just one city block-can ac
count for so much unfairness in the
distribution of society's ealth, what
difference might it not make if all
unearned value in land, now pocketed
by a privileged few, were taken over
for public purposes and the taxes of
the workingmen thereby lightened?

Flies love the vilest filth, and
they are attracted alike to the
sweetest and daintiest of food
stuffs. Just as in the house no
fly can be kept away from the
food, so outdoors no garbage or

seen in the summer without its
attendant flies. It can be taken
for granted that every fly in a.
house has but recently come
from reveling in the vilest filth
to be found in the neighborhood.
It is well known that flies mul
tiply in exact proportion to the
amount of garbage and filth in a
locality. In a locality that is
kept tidy and clean and sweet
there are very few flies, but
wherever filth exists there flies
multiply by myriads. The prin
ciple is automatic. The more
filth the more flies, the more
flies the more disease.
Let us, therefore, instead of
crying "Swat the fly!" clear away
all garbage or dirt in the vicin

Explains Why the Family Is Large.
A Wichita woman was commenting
on the faot that a certain man, who at
one time had worked for her and her
husband on a farm, was one of a fam
ily of twenty-three, and that this man
had a family of thirteen. A listener
remarked that large families evidently
was a family trait. "Well, you know,"
the Wichita woman replied, "they art

Penmanship and Business Failure.

as the cause for the failure of a large
majority, and an exchange, comment
ing on the fact, deplores a tendency
among educators to neglect this most
essentiar branch in order to giye
more time to advanced studies.
This condition may exist to a cer.
tain degree, but it does not seem to
be absolutely conclusive. As most
parents who are interested in educa
tional work, especially that of
public schools, know, sufficient- time
and attention are still being given to
developing a legible hand. The deep
er-seated root of the trouble seems
to be that the young *nen and women
of today are only now reaping the
fruits of earlier training, or lack of it
