That the new Soo road will ouiiu on
tbe last lines surveyed, running from
Brooten, croesiog the river at the
place previously planned at Pike
Rapids, about two miles north of Roy
alton, and then on to Dulath through
Lawrence. The road will come very
near the village of Pierz. A large
orew of men, with^horses and railroad
implements are now on at the" camp
put in south Piers, and this crew will
work on a contract which calls for
building a road three miles west and
three miles east of the camp.
That Little Falls will get a "I" in
connection with the new Soo road is
almost a certainty. XhiB connection of
course is preferable to the spur idea, fr0ln
In fact it will be about as good as
though the main line ran into tbe
city, and we no donbt will get tbe
same service. As for tbe through
freights, it is immaterial to the wel­
fare of the community, whether we
see them go through or not.
The news comes as a straight tip
and can be relyed on, which should
set at ea?e all rumors to the con­
trary.
Now all together—push. A great­
er Little Falls is in sight.

Monday morning onr community
was shocked by the news cf the
death of Bert Davis, who died sudden­
ly about 9:30 o'clock. He had been
quite seriously sick with pneumonia

and has always res'ded here. He was
the second son of Mr. and Mrs. D. J.
Davis. He attended the public schools
of his home city and upon reaching
man's estate gave valuable assistance
to his father in*bis business interests.
Wnen his father laid down the bur­
dens of business cares in 1808 he suc­
ceeded him in the hardware and im­
plement business and has sinoe been a
member of the well known firm of
Davis & Fell.
On the 8th of June. 1908, he was

She was a great lover of flowers and
plants, and took much interest in
gardening, and it was with consider­
able pride that Bert assisted her in
this work.
He was an excellent provider tor
his family, and kind and generous
with them in all things. The cords
of sympathy in each human heart will
I vibrate in unison for the wife and lit
