'CEOOKSTOST, May 15.Willi leap and a bound that would have doue credit to a Dakota greyhound. Ted MeCnul, one of the Oklahoma who has been in line at the land office door since last Tuesday morning, sprang over the heads of the crowd at the door just at the stroke of 9 this morning, and jumped through the open transom into the main room of the land office. The officials were strcuk with amazement at this trial flight of the man from Oklahoma. 1U was ordered out. He protested that he was an American citizen, that it was 9 o'clock, that he was in the office, and that they must file him He was thrown out, but when the door opened a second after, he was again at the head of the line, and sustained his reputation by getting filing No. 1 for the first entry of the Red Lake Indian reservation. A close second was a doughty, somewhat fat and smiling-faeed, matronly woman from St. Paul, Mrs. Jennie Cunningham. She had been iu line since 1 o'clock the day before, and had managed to get McCaul's place, hoping to get first. But while Mrs. Cunning ham is somewhat of a new woman she could not climb over the heads of the crowd and spirit herself through a transom, so the lithe Okliihoman carried off the honors. The line stretches down the winding stairs, along a wide hall and out into the streets and down the block. Many of the men at the head of the line are ghastly and haggard from their long vigils. No a few of the men are earnest-faced men, anxious for Minnesota homes. CBOOKSTON, May 10.The sec ond day of the lied Lake rush bids fair to be greater than the first, which was almost no rush at all. The settlers from Fosston arrived on the early train. They made ti wild sight. They had been opon their lands and begun improvements and had returned to civilization. In order to make the train they had travel ed all night on foot or by team, but there was a farm in sight as a reward. Before the train had stopped more than 300 men dropped from the top of the ears, climbed through the windows or threw themselves from the plat forms and made a rush for the land office. I was a spampede Which was worth seeing. Upon arriving at the door* no attention was paid to a line, aud the force of police on hand was for a long time un availing to form one. Finally this was done, and at the head of it were a score or more who had Come overland during the night wmMmnubnmmmmw und hiiu immediate ij, l-daccd UiC-tll selvcs 111 Wisitin^j.

If the Moose creek and Walker Brook bridges were not out, it would take something more than bad roads to stop Hiram Austin. Herb. Aldrich had the mis fortune to loose one of his horses last Sunday. It has been sick every since he bought her. He has got a good ease for damage against the parties who sold him the horse. Repairing the Moose creek bridge was in order last week. AH the boys turned out and agreed to stay until it was finished, if it did take a little over time. Mr. Camp bell and Edwards took great in terest in the work. Money is no object to them. The next job of road work will be the bridge on Little Mississippi, on the Bemidji road, for we are bound to have a good road to Bemidji. David Leslie, our read overseer, will put it through or bust a hame string. The dam at Depot Camp did not go out as stated last week. It was the clam at Walker Brook. Mr. Wheeler expects to finish sawing this week. Th party who reported that he had two year's sawing, must have meant two weeks. Fred. Sonnenberg was in Moose yesterday. reports that some miscreant is iu the habit of bor rowing his stock when they can't kill a deer. He lost several last year and a fine one the other day. The last one he found with a bullet hole in the hide and three quarters of the calf gone. Fred will make it interesting if he can find out who it is. Our assessor, Gilbert Brown is taking note of what we are worth. Friends, of Hugh Carrier at Walker Brook, mourn his death. Walker Brook dam has gone out, which leaves the crossing bad, nescessarily having to ford the brook. The Indians are putting ill a shingle mill one and a half miles from Depot Camp dam On May 9th the residents in the west half of township 147, range 36, met and organized a new school district, No. 5.
