BEMIDJI DAILY PIONEER rVBXXSKEZ Three Months 1.25 gSewe2k S Another Fake of the Wets Exposed. An official at Washington connected with the issuance of passports to Europe says that in no case have foreigners assigned American prohibition as their reason for returning home. On the con trary they have asserted they are going back to visit their relatives or to look after property inter ests or to spend their last days in the old home country. The report of the commissioner "of im migrants shows emigrants from America are no greater in number now than for the corresponding period of a year or two ago. These record facts show the utter falsity of the liquor allegations that prohibition was driving foreigners from our country. American Issue. Back Talk. Pittsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph: Lotion Horton, the milk king, was talking at a New York dinner about the modern woman's "ultra" gowns.

After over a month of cloudy weather, the sun is again shining brightly over all the soreheads, candidates, including Tagley and Olberg. A man from Fosston went by here the other day carrying a sack of dry goods and groceries on his hack. He -said he was going to open up a general store in the town of Sinclair. A two-year-old heifer belonging to H. Olberg was killed by lightning a few days ago. Edward Rydeen went down to Minneapolis last week. He said that he would be back in time to attend the next populist county convention. Gunder Swendson from Houstin county is here visiting friends and relatives.

There has been a lot of complaint about this portion of the road although the Red Lake delegation say it was not nearly as bad as they had been led to believe it to be. Mcintosh and Fosston are both aspiring to be the county seat of a new county to be made by dividing Polk county, so the Thief River Falls Times advises us. If one could decide to let the other have the county seat a decision might have been made before this.

The hall-mark is the straight line from catcher to centerfield If any club ever justified the ancient the ory or supeistition that that straight line means a good club, the Sox have done it. Ray Stalk, the mast spectacular if not the best catcher in the game three better-than- ordinary pitchers in Cicotte, Williams and Kerr to take not propose to sit wit* hands folded and have such a large and important portion of the county taken away from the original Polk county. A fine little fight will be sure to 'develop when real action starts. Brother Easton of the Stillwater Gazette must be some "pi(e)ous man."
