1 te i &< tel i!k It i- TUESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 17, 1920 LARGELY ATTENDED Gonvick Organize* Community .Clulj Will Center for Civic Activities (Special to Pioneer) Clearbrook, Fell). 16.Well, that last one was a cold one. Only 30 below zero Saturday morning. That will keep the melons from spoiling. I. Jensen returned Saturday even, ing from St. Paul, and a trip over to Crookstbn, where he took in the Cbcwd Crop Shows, The reported imr melee sales in the different live stock sales and a big attendance and that the crop show was a spelndid success, a credit to Crooktson and its pro moters and a boost for better farm ing, better stock, and northern Mint neeota in general. At, .St. Paul he attended a board meeting of the Min nesota Daifcy association, in which he holds the position as first vice president. V" .-i Locli tJtlenH last Thuiiday evening put cm tfe fltte^laj "Back To therangements Fannf' lifter '"tfce atfejpices of oii public1 school and Melivin Johnsor post of the Anprjcitn Legion. The play was a decided success t^nd every one who participate in the play covered his or her part with the artour and, experience^ a real artist. The house was filledI tow overflow, while now a strong demand is being made upon them to put it on .once more, to give tho$e a chance to see it who, for some reason or another, were unable to attend last time. This they will do we understand, provided they are in position to hold the building long enough in which they played the first time. Financially, here at home, it -was better than expected with more coming if staged again. On Satur day evening they played at Leonard, "butt due to cold weather and bad roads they did not realize as well financially as could have been ex pected, even though they give our good neighbors over there the best play ever staged in that progressive community. On Tuesday evening, February 24, they will put it on at Gully, at which place we expect to hear that they will play to an over crowded house, as the Gully people are real boosters for good clean and entertaining work. A big dance will be given after the play. Be sure to attend and enjoy an evening of good clean sport of an educating nature. On Wednesday evening at Gonvick a Community club was organized .with W. W. Jones, president B. L. Bjerkness, vice president A. F. La Budde, secretary H. B. Bjerkness, treasurer, and Anton O. Bakken, di rector. These officials wil constitute the powers that be and exercise it accordingly. It was decided to hold an election in the near future to vote on a bond issue of $10,000 with which to commence the construction of a building to be used for the pur poses before enumerated in these columns. It is an improvement which every place need, and need toadly, and our neighbors to the west have started to roll the- ball in the right direction provided, they are in posi tion to keep their hands upon it and guide It in the righte the- direction'when final test will applied at the time of the special election. We note that it is the young bloods that are back of the movement, which should .give it speed enough to carry faith and over all local discouragement if any. On Tuesday, February 17, at Shev lin, on Wednesday, February 18, at Bagley, and on Thursday, February 19, at Clearbrook will be held a series of one day farm institutes. A morn ing session will be held at 10 o'clock a. m., when the income tax will be discussed, while in the afternoon ses sion the subjects "Keeping Farm Ac counts" and "Cost of Producing Dairy Products" will be taken up. It is urged that everybody interested attend this meeting, as no enterpris ing and successful farmer can afford to miss it, and still claim to be a suc cessful business farmer. The Gonvick Trading company at 3onvic opened its doors to the pub lice last Friday at Gonvick, and hun dreds of people took advantage of the occasion to attend and reap the bene fit of being early birds. Hardin-A. Anderson, manager of the Clearbrook Mercantile company of this place, spent the day there getting acquaint ed and lining up new customers and reported a most successful opening day. Mr. Anderson is one of the suc cessful promoters in this enterprise and intend to give Gonvick and its people the best department store ever seen in that lively burg. Carl Gun valson, formerly the manager of the Nelson Quality Stores, Inc., at Werne and Leonard, is now in charge of the business and expects to make the rest of them go some.. Mr. Gunvalson is a young man of wide merchandise experience, wide awake and capable as none other, which alone spells suc cess for this concern beyond expecta tion at the present time. Upon the sad message that her ibrother, Julius Engebretson, had passed away at his home in Ells worth, Iowa, Mrs. Olof Vangen left last Monday for that place to attend the funeral. He was still a young man and left a wife and four children to mourn an early demise. A long, cold and dreary winter is (drawing to a close and we have sev eral reasons to rejoice that the long, old evenings and blizzard days with deep snow will soon be something of the past for this season also, and in -view of these facts communities as -well as individuals should make pre parations to meet the new pleasant and smiling times .before us in such a manner as to be a benefit, pleasure and source of all around community ^fi^AhjMsa.-!:iirfcwfciJ ^*fe^rJfrL*a^&a*flfeat^^ affair breeding of good will and mu tual returns to all Interested. Clearbrook being, and always hav ing been, the leader in all progressive movements in this section of our country should sit up and take notice of what might be accomplished in community boosting, including farm ers and business men of alfcolors and descriptions. We have a prominent and most successful Commercial club, with officers on par with any of them, and therefore suggest that at the next regular meeting of this splendid representative body, that steps be taken to make arrangements to put in' a series of "Market Days" at Clearbrook, beginning sometime in May and continue throughout the summer as long as this body would consider it worth the while. A com munity can arrange no affairs of any nature which will bring farmers and business men closer together than a series of such markets, where the farmers can bring their products in to town from rutabagas to horses, machinery, etc., and sell or exchange the same as the case may ibe, or put it on the block and sell it at public auction. On the other hand our mer chants can each and every one offer a certain line of bargains in such a manner as not to conflict with one another, and offer different prizes for the farmer bringing the largest fami ly to town the whole family coming into town to. trade from the greatest distance, and dozens of other ar as the season progresses and conditions will warrant, with a complete change of program for every month. If Clearbrook wishes to keep its place in the front ranks as the original and best trading center in section of the state it is up to them to be up and doing, as we rest assured that, if they do not take it up, other neighboring towns will, and Clearbrook and Its trade territory will suffer as never .before. It is the acid test as to the business "pep" and qualifications possessed by them, and it is up to the members of the Commercial club to put it through or admit defeat. February 22 is a legal holiday in the United States, it being the birth* day anniversary of the father of our beautiful country, the greatest and grandest country under the face of the sun This day means rest and mutual recognition of the history of this day and what it means to the American people as a whole. This year the 22nd will fall upon a Sun day and would therefore not create the rest and devotion it was intended to fulfill in the hearts of our people. In view of these solid facts our good old Uncle Sam has decreed that the day following be aoserved by his mil lions of children on this globe, which also means that all post offices in our country will observe the day, andTO that all rural mail carriers will rest on Monday as well as Sunday this motnh. Remember that and do the same, and you will escape much worry and trouble. BLOWN FROM 'GATOR'S MOUTH Swimmer's Presence of Mind Saved Him From a Particularly fiorrible Death. In the spring of 1889, when I was -learning how to grow and cues coffee and pepper in the sultanate of Johore, writes a contributor to the Wide World Magazine, the plantation man ager and I one evening rowed across the river to anew clearing to see how the work progressed. We wore our swimming clothes, and as we drew into the beach I dropped overboard. I bad been swimming for a short time when suddenly I was grasped by the waist and flung into the air. The next moment I discovered that I was the prey of an alligator that had mis judged its grip. When I fell back into the water the' brute closed his Jaws on my right leg and shook It as If try ing to wrench it off. The manager and the coolies came running to the edge of the water, but the manager dared not use his rifle lest he should shoot me, or launch the boat lest my captor should carry me off. Suddenly an idea came to me. Bend ing forward I'pushed my right hand into the alligator's throat and groped among the hot, soft, folds of flesh. Managing to get a grip on them, I pulled with all my strength. The flesh in my hand hardened, then the brute choked, gave a cough like a blast from an air valve, and literally blew me out of his mouth. Needless to say I lost no time in reaching the shore. My right leg was so badly Injured that I could not stand, and the coolies had to carry me to the manager's bunga low. ILLS THAT WILL COME She (during the quarrel)You never deserved a wife like me!

The bee industry is an important one in Australia, and, like poultry farming, is ordinarily an adjunct to agricultural or dairying industries. The average annual production of honey in the past five years has been over 5,000,000 pounds, with a pro duction of about 90,000 pounds of beeswax. In the past year or two, however, the production of both honey and beeswax has fallen consid erably below the high record of 1913, when over 8,000,000 pounds of honey was proluced. THAT NEVADA TRICK.

Bring Back Its Natural Color, Gloss and Attractiveness Common garden sage brewed into a heavy tea with sulphur added, will turn gray, streaked and faded hsir beautifully dark and luxuriant. Just a few applications will prove a revel ation if your hair is fading, streaked or gray. Mixing the Sage Tea and Sulphur recipe at home, though, is troublesome. An easier way is to get a bottle of Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound at any drug store all ready for use. This is the old time recipe improved by the addition of other ingredients. While wispy, gray, faded hair is not sinful, we all desire to retain our youthful appearance and attrac tiveness. By darkening your hair with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com pound, no one can tell, because it does it so naturally, so evenly. You just dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time by morning all gray hairs have disappeared, and, after another ap plication or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, glossy, soft and luxuriant. SLO W DEAT **No:one who has not had Influenza can realize the suffering it causes or how it defies treatment. I know of nothing that will give such prompt relief as Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, for when it is taken the pain in the chest disappears, the fever sub- sides and the whole body becomes more comfortable. Then again, the after effects of Influenza are often even more distressing than the disease itself, but they can be avoided if you use Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Though the greatest danger from chis disease is Pneumonia, I have never known a single case of Influenza to result in it when Chamberlain 8 Cough Remedy was freely given. The persistent cough that frequently follows Influenza can be relieved by Champerlain Cough Remedy, and should not be allowed to run on until it becomes troublesome." ^uji Aches, puns, nervousness, diffi culty in urinating, often mean serious disorders.
