EM! the Ward System.
Minnesota is no longer a pioneer
nor frontier state. If the federal
interior department will get this
one fact firmly iu mind it will help
materially in a sensible manage
ment and final settlement of the
remaining Indian problem and the
remaining Indian reservations.
Secretary Lane has the wisest
policy as to the Indians of any
head of the interior department of
this government. He believes in
wiping out the ward system as
fast as possible, and while protect
ing the Indians, placing upon them
individual responsibilty of citizen
ship. The way to do this, is to do
it.
They should receive their allot
ments of land. Thj&y should not
be permitted to sell these for a
period of years. They should be
helued to improve their land and
to become self-supporting farmers.
The funds for this generally are
now in the hands of the govern
ment. If not, they can be provid
ed from the sale of surplus lands
(eft after allotment and from still
standing timber.
One of the largest remaining
reservations is the Red Lake Res
ervation. The western part, in
Clearwater county, is mainly good
agricultural land with little tim
ber, and available now for culti
vation. Why wait to allot this
part until all can be apportioned,
all timber sold and the larger
swamp ares to the east drained?
In fact this drainage should not be
made until settlement is assured
But the western part could be
opened now. Such Indians as re
side there, or all who desire, could
get their shares now, be made
self supporting and independent.
If not now7 they never can be. If
after 50 years they are not ready
for this, there is no reason to be
lieve their children will be better
prepared after another 50 years
under the still prevailing system.
The surplus lands of the section
could then be sold for the benefit
of all the eastern section retained
for future allotment and the tim
ber and surplus lands sold for the
benefit of all. This is the square
deal it is the sensible way, and it
is the only process possible by
which this fine land can be made
to contribute what Minnesota has
the right to demand in wealth and
state support.
It is the only way these Indians
can be given their real rights anJ
real opportunity. The ward sys
tem has proved a miserable failure
and no genuine friend of the Insides
dians' would continue it. Only the
human leeches fastened on the In
dians uphold it, and they have
long enough sucked Indian blood
money.
If Secretary Lane knew the
facts he would act. But to know

MAKE A STATEMENT
Local people should know that a
few doses of simple buckthorn bark,
glycerine, etc., as mixed in Adler-i

INDIANS IN KHAKI:
(By Arthur Chapman.)
Nine thousand strong we volun
teered
From lonely tepee and from town
Long-standing tribal doubts were
cleared,
And from our fathers came no
frown.
Forgotten, then, was Wounded
Knee
Full-throated rose our battle cry
This much should our white broth
ers see
We, too. were not afraid to die.
Nine thousand strong, her r*)d sons
sprang
Beneath Columbia's arm upraised
O'er lilied France their rifles rang
Their foes fell backward, beaten,
dazed
And through dim, cratered, No
Man's Land
Our scouts like shadows flitted by,
And now our brothers understand
We, too, were not afraid to die.
Apache, Siouxour fathers dream
By lodge fires, scattered through
the West
They watch their sons' gold, chev
rons gleam
A cross glows on some, warrior's
breast.
And there are lodges where at night.
The death chant rises to the sky
For youths who proved in many a
fight,
We, too, were not afraid to die.
Now is the time to pay that

Make th Mast of Pleasure.
Few young people make as much as
they should of small pleasures. For
many years the standards of enjoy
ment have been undergoing a change
and there is a tendency to think that
we cannot have a good time that does
not cost money. A girl's education is
far from complete till she has learned
to enjoy herself simply and without
any money expense.Pennsylvania

No matter how wise you are, every

Statistics (serve to show a steady
increase in the number ot the insane.
The most reliable statistics known to
us, these taken In Massachusetts,
show that in that state the number
of insane la the asylums is Increasing
from 250 to SO O a year, which is a
much larger ^proportionate increase
than that of the sane population. Re*
ports from other states show similar
results. Some of the more generally
accepted causes of the increase of in
sanity are given as follows: The over

by the keen struggle for life the con
