Why Buy Red Cross Seals? Why you should buy Red Cross Christmas Seals, mav be answered most effectively in the words of a twelve-year-old boy in the Duluth, (Minn.) schools, who gave the fol lowing as his reason in a eompositoa on this subject: "The reason I put Red Cross Seals on mv Christmas gifts is because ev erv seal I use counts one cent to ward stamping out tuberculosis in the city and for the maintenance of hos pitals for that purpose. The seals are also used to raise funds to teac'i oeople the value of fresh air. An other reason I buy them is because my father died of tuberculosis and I buy them so that other little boys an girls won't lose their father as I did. Another reason is that if I am ever threatened with tuberculosis the doctors will have a fund to try to prevent it."

The semi-annual meeting of the Northern Minnesota Development Association drew a large crowd of interested business men, farmers au legislators to International Falls last week where not a few surprises were sprung. To a *ood many the "Citv of Destiny" meant nothing more than a prosperous village, snruner up, as it were, during the night, and the en thusiastic exuberance of its citizens was looked upon as the effervescence of a rapidly working townsite boom. However, this mistaken- notion was soon dispelled and to those making their third or fourth trip to the Falls the solidity of the foundations of big city now being laid were even more apparent than to those who had been denied the opportunity of watching the wonderful transforma tion which has been taking place since the earlier frontier buildings were erected. First came the wond erful works of nature, the Indian and the homesteader's shack. Then the men with capital and courage har nessed the seething torrents and bade the giant forces do their bidding.

PRICE 5 CENTS NUMBER 42 WSTRKT OFFICES COM E TO^WniMAR Northwestern Telephone Ex change Co. Makes Our City Dislrkt Headquarters. The Northwestern Telephone Ex change Company have made some im portant changes at Willmar follow ing the purchase of the Minnesota Central Co. lines and exchanges. A re-organi2ation has been effected by which Willmar becomes the center of a district which includes practical ly all of the old Minnesota Central property in southwestern Minnesota, and some other portions of the Northwestern system as far east as Dassel. District offices will be es tablished at Willmar with a District Plant Chief, a District Traffic Chief and a District Commercial Manager. Each one of these officials will have an office with assistants. There will also be a storekeeper at Willmar to have charge of a warehouse, from which all the supplies for the Dis trict Will be issued. The question of finding suitable office room and com petent stenographers for these new oces is worrying Mr. Williams not a little. It is estimated that this new departure of the Northwestern will add not less than 25 employes to the pay-roll of the Company Willmar. It is possible that there will be a building secured at Willmar to house the telephone offices exclus ively similar to the one used by the District headquarters at St. Cloud.

NORTHERN MINNESOTA IS FORGING TO THE FRONT (From the Delano Eagle June 27, 1912) their first revolution, but while the preparatory work was being done the men who take the tide at its flood grasped their opportunity and build ed even better than they knew. AU the foundation work of a large city is laid. Sewers and water mains for a second Minneapolis have been laid fire limits have been established, building ordinances are in force ana the town is full of boosters whose faith is supplemented by work of the most substantial character. A big $90,000 steel bridge is about com pleted, connecting International Falls with Fort Francis on the Canadian side, where another paper mill is be ing erected and where the Shevlin Carpenter Company have their large saw mill. Besides the paper mill at the Falls is the immense saw mill plant of the Backus-Brooks Co., the planing mill and woodworking fac tory and numerous other industries to be undertaken which the people of International Falls have not even been advised of, bnt the knowledge of which comes to The Eagle in a pretty straight line from headquar ters.

Already a street railway has been built and is ready to enter the city almost any day, while the principal highway connecting the two towns is being' macadamized and is tartly complet ed at this writing. Of this district volumes might be written, so fraught is it with possibilities of greatness. The natural beauty of the scenery," its strategic position between the two5* big factory districts, and the con seientious efforts beinc made by thetC American Suburbs Company to real-r ize for their clients the fullestreturne upon their investments makes tho'i proposition particularly attractive,^ and it is not saying too much when the prediction is made that within *_5 very few years this property will be"""" very valuable. It must be particu-r larly gratifying to the Company to be able to ooint to the realization, of many things they have promised, and there is little reason to doubt that their highest expectations will be fully realized within the space of a very few years.
