BEMIDJI HUMANITARIANS ARE CHAGRINED.
Bemidji patriots, many of them, feel not a little chagrined
over the situation at Cloquet, where many of Bemidji's ener-
getic citizens have taken a personal active part in the relief of
the plague stricken victims now in the school house, which has
been turned into an improvised hospital, the building being
spared by the flames.
With the break of the terrible holocaust, Bemidji rose to the
spirit of the cry and immediately gathered, grouped and packed
one of the most complete shipments of clothing for men,
women, children and infants, all of the highest class and asked
for shippirig orders. The answer was to wait. Presently, about
a week after, printed instructions were received which in-
cluded the unpacking of the shipment, disinfecting etc etc.News.
'And the shipment is still here.
The Bemidji hospital corps of the twenty-first home guard
battalion and battlion members were the first to go to Cloquet
when the epidemic broke. The men of the corps attended to
even the care and needs of the women and children patients
in the improvided hospital. Volunteer nurses later left for the
scene. Heroic&tty the corps worked as the patients mounted.
They attended to every want and need. Clothing for the sick
was as scarce as Portuguese bibles in the Sahara desert and in
several instances was improvised. Towels, even a cloth and
other necessaries, were as scarce. Sick bed attire was lack-
ing.
Of course the situation could not be met a minute, but
the boxes of clean wholesome attire and bed equipment still
holds its place in a vacant store room of Bemidji, waiting to do
its share when needed in an emergency. We place no credit
for this condition. Bemidji stands ready to go to the rescue
for this condition. Bemidji stood ready to go to the rescue
of these unfortunates. But the supply of red tape still held
out.

BEMIDJI VOTERS SHOW RIGHT SPIRIT.
Beltrami county nobly supported the state candidates who
wear the stamp of loyalty, and Burnquist found a hearty in-
dorsement of his past administration.
Congresman Knutson also received the seal of approval of
the voters of Beltrami county and so did State Senator L. H.
Nord, both of whom deserved their re-election.
Ed. Rako was given strong indorsement by his Bemidji
friends and caried the city handsomely.
In the county commisionership, of which Bemidji is the
major portion, Ed. Paulson won.
The loyal candidates of the state all received substantial
majorities and on the "wet" and "dry" amendment, Bemidji
voted heavily in favor of its adoption.

COUNTING OF BALLOTS TEDIOUS OPERATION.
Bemidji's precinct count dragged throughout election
night and far into the next day. Some of the pdecincts started
the count on the state ticket and some on the county. The polls
closed at 9 o'clock and the lunch hour also occupied its space
of time. It was a slow process on account of the number of
candidates and the state and county ballots.
The county precincts commenced to report during the
morning following the election and over half the county was in
by evening, with more following today, a hard task being well
done.
Add horror of war: The price of singing canaries has
advanced from about two or three dollars to ten and twelve
dollars each.. However, when you have once bought your little
songster you do not have to pay any war tax to listen to his
music.
The most distressing incident of the county election was
that Editor "Bill" Noonan of the Baudette Region was confined
to his room with the Spanish "flu." Election time and election
day is Editor Noonan's greatest pastiming.
The people who have been seeking for years to reduce
ought to be very much obliged to Mr. Hoover for each succes-
sive set of his rules. Reducing is now an involuntary rather
than a voluntary matter.
o
Politics may have been adjourned for the duration of the
war, but this is not true of statemanship. Congress please take
notice.

DELIGHTED JN HIS FREEDOM
Youngster's Chief Enjoyment of Va
cation Came From Hi* Defiance
of All Conventionalities.
The best sort of vacation and the
only kind that really is a benefit to
the one toking It, according to Lewis
Weisenberger, is the one on which all
conventional rules of conduct are
broken. To enjoy a vacation one must
do absolutely as he pleases, Mr. Wei
senberger continues.
In proof of this contention Mr. Wel
Benberger tells the following story on
a young lad with whom he hibernated
In the wilds of Michigan fqr several
weeks this summer.
The campers had taken a Targe sup
ply of towels with them, as bathing
vra* expected to feature the holiday
events. On arrival at camp each mem
ber of the vacation.party received his
apportionment of the towels and the
lad was duly Included In the division.
On the second day of the vacation
week Mr. Weisenberger was surprised
to find the young lad's supply of
towels packed securely away in one
corner of the cottage, thus far un
touched. He Immediately summoned
the lad and inquired whose towels
he had been using, since his own sup
ply was undiminished.' He was not a
little taken back by the lad's reply:
"Aw, I didn't wash my face yester-
day."
Even with face unwashed and tow
els untouched, the young barbarian
probably enjoyed the vacation trip
more than did any other member of
the party, Mr. Weisenberger says.
And the reason for the lad's enjoy
ment, he believes, }s the fact that he
violated all rules of personal etiqnette
and lived one entire day with his face
innocent of ablutions.Indianapolis

Probably executed for that patron oi

a superb cameo of the head of Medusa,
wonderfully carved from a boss oi
translucent chalcedony, was sold al
auction here, recently, bringing 1.75C
guineas (about $8,760). It was a classic
reminder of a classic sale, for it form
ed part of the incomparable Slarl
borough gems which realized, en bloc,
35.000 guineas in June, 1875, passing
to the late David Bromilow, 'of Battles
den Park. The collection was formed
by George, third duke of Marlborough
and comprised gems which had belong
ed to such famous connoisseurs as
Thomas Howard, earl of Arundel Wil

Philip Dormer, eurl of Chesterfield.'

Aerial Compasses.
Many difficulties had to be over
come in the production of a satisfac
tory compass for aerial work. .Chief
among these was that of neutralizing
the magnetism of the engine (and in
particular the magneto), and of pre
venting the effect of centrifugal force,
which caused the card or dial Inside
the compass to swing in a direction
quite independent of north when the
airplane was banking on a turn. How
*ver, a truly excellent compass is now
in use.

IF BACKACHY OR
KIDNEYS BOTHER
Eat Less Meat, Also Take Glass
of Salts Before Elat
ing Breakfast
Uric acid in meat excites the kid
neys, they become overworked get
sluggish, ache, and feel like lumps
of lead. The urine becomes cloudy
the bladder is irritated, and you may
be obliged to seek relief two or three
tames during the night. When the
kidneys clog you must help them flush
off the body's urinous waste or you'll
be a real sick person shortly. At first
you feel a dull misery in the kidney
region, you suffer from backache, sick
headache, dizziness, stomach gets
sour, tongue coated and you feel
rheuraatfc twinges when the weather
is bad.
Eat less meat, drink lots of water
also get from any pharmacist four
ounces of Jad Salts take a table
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and your
kidneys will then act fine. This fam
ous salts is made from the acid of
grapes and lemon juice, combined
with lithia, and has been used for
generations to clean clogged kidneys
and stimulate them to normal activ
ity, also to neutralize the acids in
urine, so it no longer is a source of
irritation, thus ending bladder weak
ness.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, cannot
injure makes a delightful efferves
cent Kthia-water drink which every
one should take now and then to keep
the kidneys clean and active. Drug
gists here say they sell lots of Jad
Salts to folks who believe in over
coming kidney trouble while it is only
trouble.
N6 organs of the human body are
so important to headth and long life
as the kidneys. When they slow up
and commence to lag in their duties,
look out! Danger is in sight.
Find out what the trouble iswith
delay. Whenever you feel
nervous, weak, dizzy, suffer from
sleeplessness, or have pains in the
back or difficulty in passing urine
wake up at once. Your kidneys need
help. These are signs to warn you
that your kidneys are not perform
ing their functions properly They
are only half doing their work and
are allowing impurities to accumulate
and be converted into uric acid and
other poisons, which are causing you
distress and will destroy you unless
