Detroit is going to celebrate the Fourth of July again this year on Monday, July 5th. This will make the third succes sive celebration and while last year's celebration was the biggest ever held in this part of the state the little city among the lakes promises to have one equal to it if not better. There was left over from last year's fund nearly $500 and the business men have contrib uted enough to make up nearly $2,000 which will be expended for the benefit of our visitors. The committees that have charge this year have already been ap pointed and are at work on the may details. The Fourth coming on Monday this year will make a good oppor tunity for visitors to spend two or three days at tbe lakes. Arrange ments will be made for accommo dations for everybody this year. Base ball games, two days. Bal loons bands, fireworks, etc. Further announcements will be made in this papsr.Adv. NOTICE. We now have the agency for the Detroit Steam Laundry, persons wishing to send laundry to Detroit please leave it at the store. B. L.

Dated at Red Lake, Minn., May 13th. 1915. Signed, John G. Morrison r. President cf General Council. Memorial Day Exer cises. Formerly quite a large .number of veterans used to be in the pa rade on memorial day, but last Monday they numbered only seven, namely Albert Fairbanks. Frank Roy, Alex Beaulieu, Mr. LaChappelle, Thos. Swan. Peter Parker and Charles Bottixi eau. It is sad to think that within comparatively a short time there will be no more civil war veterans to march in parade on memorial days, but it will be many gener ations before they will be forgot ten. The exercises of the day com menced at the Catholic cemetary where Father Aloysius gave ap address in the forenoon, and in the afternoon the old soldiers marched to the cemetary at the Episcopal church and there Mr. Powers made an address. National songs were sung at both cemetaries and the school band furnished the music. HENRY BAUMBACH O OLD CROW WING. At old Crow Wing in 1868 there arrived from up the Mississippi River a couple of log rafts, and on one of these a quiet man pwung a rudder.v He was at fir?t taken for an ordinary lumber jack but the second evening after his arrival when the strains of a picolo were heard wafting up from the water's edge, it was learned that this man, who was Henry Baumbach, was a fine musician, and it was no com? mon occuranee to see a crowd on the raft being entertained by his fine music. It was not long after this that a violin box, addressed to Henry Baumbach, arrived at the express office of the old stage company, and it contained a violin, and again "Hank" as he was familiar ly called, surprised the old timers by showing that he was an adept unon that instrument. Hank be came the leading musician for Crow Wing county and several of the adjoining counties. In the course of time and after Brainerd was built Crow Wing ceased to be a place of importance and within several years was en tirely adandoned, and Hank, like all other residents there, went away. Occasionally during the past forty years some of his old Crow Wing acquaintances have met him, but during the past two or three years the impression pre vailed here that he had started on his last trip to the Great Beyond, and many of his old friends upon this reservation sincerely mourned his death not only because of his popularity among them but be cause he was one of the old Crow Wing boys. Last Monday a dele gation went from here to attend the memorial day services at De troit and also to meet Senator Clapp, who was the principal speaker of the day. When they got on the train at Ogema Ed. Wakefield, who has known Hank Baumback since his earliest ref lections, discovered the latter seat ed among the passengers, and there was a joyous meeting be tween him and his old friends and acquaintances. Mr. Baumback belongs to a troupe of civil war veterans which gives musical entertainments and vaudville selections which are pronounced first class by the ball players that went to Thief River Falls last week where they saw the troupe. Mr. Baumbach promised to visit White Earth in the near future to renew old acquaintance and friend- ship with formen old Crow Wing- ites. EGGS FOR SALE.
