Many readers of the Pioneer who
learned years ago the meaning of the
name "Minnesota," and why it was
appropriated, also many other his
toric facts concerning the state, but
v/hich have slipped from their mem
ory, will be interested in the fol
Minnesota is named from the river
which crosses the southern part of
the state in an easterly direction.
The name is of Indian origin and
signifies "sky-colored (cloudy or
Explorations in the region now
constituting Minnesota were made
by the French as early as 1659-60,
when Groseilliers and Radisson vis
ited the Mille Lacs Region. In 1686
Nical* Perrot took formal possession
of the country in the name of the
king of France. Although fur trad
ers had been in the Minnesota region
for more than a century, the first
permanent settlement appears to have
been that made near Fort Snelling
in 1826 by Swiss refugees from Lord
Selkirk's colony at Pembina, now in
JNorth Dakota. The fort itself, at
first called Fort St. Anthony, had
been established in 1819.
In 1762 the French possessions
v/est of the Mississippi, then known
a Louisiana, were ceded to Spain, in
1800 Louisiana was receded to
France, and in 1802 it was purchased
by the United States. The French
possessions east of the Mississippi
were .ceded to England in 1763, and
at the clpse of the Revolution all of
the present area of Minnesota lying
northeast of the Mississippi became
a part of the United States.
The section of the Minnesota coun
try included in the Louisiana Pur
chase belonged successively to the
district of Louisiana, organized in
1804, to Louisiana Territory, organ
ized in 1805 and to Missouri Terri
tory, organized in 1812. In 1834 it
was added to Michigan territory, in
1836 it was made a part of Wiscon
sin territory, and in 1838 it was in
cluded in the territory of Iowa. That
part of Minnesota northeast of the
Mississippi was embraced within the
Northwest Territory from the organi
zation of that territory in 1787 until
1800, when it was made a part of
the territory of Indiana. In 1809 it
was attached to Illinois territory in
1819 it was added to the territory
of Michigan and in 1836 it was in
cluded in the territory of Wisconsin.
Upon the admission of Iowa and Wis
consin as states of the Union, in 1846
and 1848, respectively, the Minnesota
country was left without an organ
ized government. In 1849 the terri
tory of Minnesota was formed, with
northern, eastern and southern limits
as at present, but bounded on the
northwest and west by the Missouri
and White Earth rivers, thus includ
ingitmore than half the area of the
present states of North and South Da
In May, 1858, Minnesota, with
boundaries as at present, became a
state of the Union.

creed.Red Wing Eagle.
An Ohio editor told a great truth
Jn. a Jbrief space when he wrote the
following paragraph: Don't attempt
to ask the editor to write up and re
buke every evil in the community,
but when, convinced that such duties
need attending to, write an article
for your paper and sign your name
to it for publication. Don't expect
the.newspaper to fight all the battles.

Minneapolis made a bad play when
i^.treated the Farmers' Equity asso
ciation with contempt, inasmuch as
the association went over to St. Paul
with their annual convention and
good deal of vigor. Over three thou
sand farmers attended the ineeting,.
and a bunch of representative farm
ers like that is not to be treated with
disdain.Elk River Star News.
The Cost of Smoke
A. cloud of black smoke hovering ovei
a city signifies industry. It a\sp sig
nines extravagance. A lack o^ care
in the using of fuel Js~ doubly expen
slve, for the damage it.causes costs the
city many hundreds of thousands of
dollars and wastes for the city ap even
greateramyuni of .money
Chicago, for Instance, has an- actual
annual damage bill of approximately
$40,000.0004_ Cincinnati pays $l(KLa
year for every family within its mu
nicipal limits. The cleaning of clothes
and buildings and the cost of wash
ing. repainting and repapering are the
chief Items in this expense.^ But the
greatest expense is the expense which
comes from the reckless waste of the
valuable byproducts of the coal.
One of the chief elements of the re
markable commercial success of Ger
many is due to the fact that in the fa
therland 85 per cent of the byproducts
of the burnirig coal are utilized in many
How many pounds of these very
same byproducts go out of the chim
neys of our great manufacturing cit
ies every year can never be estimated.
But the facts are that we utilize 20
per cent of the products as compared
with Germany's 85 per .cent
Extravagance seems to have had its
day with the people of America. Econ

first and most apparent economies is
that to be effected by a more careful
