clined to make light of beauty as an actual asset. Yet whatjture
one of us does not appreciate a beautiful tree or grove, or an|
attractive farmstead or village? Did you ever consider the
most attractive farm in your locality, and then figure out how
much the attractiveness was worth in actual dollars and cents?
The attractiveness is rarely the result of accident, but is rather
the result of definite planning years ago.
CANADA LEADS AGAIN
Canada has taken a step in advance of other countries by
the institution of a system of preventive medical examination of
immigrants at continental ports. Dr. Jeffs, of the Dominion De-
partment of Public Health, recently went overseas to co-oper-
ate with the Immigration Department at Havre, Rotterdam, Ant-
werp and other European ports from which immigrants sail for
the Dominion. Prospective passengers will be given a medical
examination and the steamship companies advised if they are
Jikely to pass the examination at the port of arrival in Canada.
The Dominion has no legal right of rejection of immigrants in
any European port, but if the steamship companies disregard
the department officials' advice they are liable to a fine in case
an unfit immigrant has to be refused, as well as having to pro-
vide transportation back to the port of embarkation.
There is much food for thought, in this method of select-
ing immigrants. This plan undoubtedly will save much trouble
both for the country and the immigrant
might well watch the experiment and profit thereby.
THE NORTHERN MINNESOTA FAIR
If the plans as outlined by the various committees of the
Fair association are carried out, and there is every reason to be-
lieve they will be, the Northern Minnesota Fair, to be held in
Bemidji September 20 to 23, will surpass any fair in the state,
with the exception of the Minnesota State Fair at Ham line Bel-
trami county, for the past two years, took first place at the Min-
nesota State Fair in the exhibit of agricultural products. The
same exhibit will be shown in Bemidji. The horse races, flying
circus, entertainments and other attractions promise to furnish
thrills galore. The stock exhibits on a scale never attempted be-
fore. Nothing will be left undone to make it THE RIG attrac-
tion for Northern Minnesota people.
From miles around thousands will plan to spend the week
at this-great fair. It will be well for the people of this section
of th*( state to begin to make their plans now to spend their va-
cation at Bemidji during this fair.

IDLE HOURS
There is no place' in the life oi the successful man for idle
hours. When he works, he works when he plays, he plays.
He does each its appointed time and with purpose. But he
is never found just waiting for "something to turn up."
It necessary that healthy minds have a certain amount of
recreation, but when playtime comes he seeks the kind of diver-
sion that appeals to him and pursues it just as assiduously as he
does his work. Hours wisely spent are an investment which
will pay dividends during your whole life hours spent in idle-
ness are a depreciation charge that must be added to your over-
head, when striking a balance in your Book of Life.

City planning is now generally recognized as a good busi-
ness policy, and is generally followed in all cities where there
can be found any civic pride in the minds of the people. If this
is a*sensible practice in the city, why should we not also have
definite plans for developing rural communities as well. This
point was developed in the sessions of the Tri-State Develop-
ment Congress held in St. Paul. Accprding to Dean Russell of
the Wisconsin Agricultural College, "community planning
should be given an important place in all development work in i inimitable character actor, Otis Skin-
the Great Lakes states, because it is a well known fact that this-.^^
section is one of the great beauty spots of the nation. It roads Sunday for a run of two days. This
are built right, if beauty spots are conserved, such as little tim-
ber plots on the lake shores and other beauty spots, there is
every reason to believe that the north country wilj eventually
become the summer playground of the nation.' Much, of the
beauty of the country is destroyed before we recognize its value
and comfort.
In discussing the same question of rural planning at the
Development Congress, Anthony W. Morell, city planning ex-
pert of Minneapolis, recommended the creation of a State Board
of Rural Planning. Such a board, made up of experts, would
co-operate with the State Board of Health and other develop-
ment agencies in laying out new communities and in replanning
established communities so that natural beauty might be con-
served and so that these communities could grow in a construc-
tive way. It is interesting to note that one new Wisconsin town sented,h th*e?actor, iTs his^ custom,*?S
has
alreadyi-been
definitely planned in this way by Mr. Morell.

"THBEE GOLD COINS" AT,

Tom Mix, the star, as well as the
author and director, was born on a
ranch near El Paso, Texas. His ear
ly, playmates were horses and cattle.
He finally attended the Virginia Mili
tary Academy. He is a veteran of
five wars, has been a Texas ranger, a
United States marshal, has been
wounded in action, shot by outlaws
whom he was attempting to arrest,
and has had many narrow escapes.
He is considered one of the best
horsemen in the land of horses and
the finest shot in the border. His
rope-throwing fame is second to
none. His work in Fox Films has
made him internationally famous.

AMATEUR NIGHT TONIGHT

With eight contestants already

theater (tonight, holds promise for an
everting of unusual entertainment.
Amateur nights have always been
popular, and) excellent talent is often
discovered, to say nothing of the fun
that every one has. Tonight the au
dience 1s tq be the judge of who wins
the first and second prizes for the
best performance. Their applause in
volume will be determined by three
judges from the audience' and the
prizes immediately awarded.

is presented as an Associated First
National attraction and it comes to
tlgis city with an actual record for
establishing new ideals in screen pro
duction. Aside from its reputed new
technical perfections there is a depth
of panoramic perspective hitherto un
known to th silversheet and in
stanced by the passion of huge mobs
rising in their might to overthrow
the mighty, and of which there have
been plenty of demonstrations lately
in the form of strikes and rebellions.
One of the big scenes in this photo
dramatic spectacle is the storming of
a mammoth barricaded prison by a
mob of 5,000 impassioned aitizens,
all of which becomes doubly impres
sive and realistic through the stereo
scopic character of the new photo
graphy which displaces the flat photo
graphy that so often makes the illu
sion difficult. By this system are
picturized not only shadows and re
flections but bodies and scenes which
seem endowed with their true di
mensions, it is said. This novelty
within itself should mark a distinct
novelty which will arouse wide inter
est since the progress of the cinema
development is being so closely
watched by interested millions of de
votees.
The cast in "Passion" is headed by
Pola Negri, the famous Continental
star, and her portrayal of the leading
