Well. Bemidji will do her very best to make'the day pleas ant for all visitors coming into: the town, and all who come can rest assured of that much. This I town can easily handle a large crowd, as we have the facilities Sand plenty of elbow room on the i lakes. The Commercial club will see to it that all visitors who! cotneto the city wil1 go away feel-' ing that, the day was well spent. Never before has Bemidji made such preparations for a holiday, and July- 4 will be the A Funeh of Knockers^ The Crookston bunch are all seasoned r. layers, according to the Fargo Call, many of whom have been playing ball in this neck o' the woods for several seasons. The team also has several players loaned them by the Minneapolis management. The team should put up a rattling good game arfd be well up to the front, but some are inclined to the opinion that Iaycan will have his hands full keeping his bunch on a peace basis. A team of knockers can no" deliver the goods no matter how capable they are, and the sooner the kickers are weeded out the better for the team. Of the pitching staff little is known, but they come well recommended. The Encampment. O. Thorson, traveling passen ger agent for the Great North ern, called on Commander Bailey of the G. A. R. Encampment as sociation to make arrangements as to rates, etc., for the Grand Army encampment at this place from July 21-5. Reduced rates have been made from all parts of the state.

The Modern Woodmen are going to hold a picnic during the encampment and will draw a large crowd to the city. The management of the roads made all concessions asked, and offer whatever assistance maybe required to make the excursions this summer a greater success than ever before. Both gentle men were highly pleased with the successful outcome of the trip. Work Out Fines. "Chief Bailey has a ten-day men at work cleaning up the streets this week.

Somewhat Remarkable Experience in Duluth, Minn. In a little wayside inn pJ force of i conveniences occasioned by the frigid weather there one February. Another recounted a tale of suffer ing endured by men and beasts on a North Dakota prairie during a bliz- a small station some fifty miles west of l)u- lutfi a half-dozen men from various I places chanced to meet recently. The conversation opened with a I remark concerning the weather, and from that drifted easily to the se I verity of winters in the different parts of the Northwest. One man. who came from the Twin i Cities, told a sad story of frozen water pipes and other household in- I zard. Stories were thus told until five I of the group had contributed in stances upon the subjeet. There was a pause in the conver I yition until an Irishman, who sat a little apart from the others, quietly smoking a pipe, remarked: "Well, the I coldest winter Oi iver put in was i summer in Duluth. Physician Suicides. Gadsden, Ala., May 14.Dr. W. L. Funderberg. a physician, committed suicide yesterday by taking morphine.

Writers Whose Fame Rests Upon a Single Book or Quotation. It is one of the many odd experi ences of lite that, while some men In pursuit of tamo write a library of books and die and are forgotten, other men. under some happy inspiration., write a single line, poem or volume, and are forever ranked with the im mortals. In some eases immortality goes a-begging from the modest shrinking of an author to claim his offspring, as in the ease of the oracle who penned the eloquent word "Don't" in answer to Punch's request for advice to those about to marry. Very few read Congreve nowadays, and fewer still could quote half a dozen lines from any of his poems and dramas and yet to many who have never even heard his name there are few lines more familiar than the oft-quoted and misquoted. "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast." Charles Wolfe, the Irish divine and poet, wrote many poems of excellence, but only one redeems him and all his works from obsahrity, and of this few could get beyond the tirst line. "We buried him darkly at dead of night." Thomas Cray has left one legacy only from all his writings, but that is an imperishable onehis "Elegy Writ ten in a Country Churchyard," the most widely quoted poem in our lan guage. Yet those who can recite every word of it could probably not even give the name of a single other poem by the same writer, Lady Anno Barnard would have no place at all in the public memory if she had not written "Auld llobin Gray." A SYMPATHY IN COLORS. College President Rings Changes on Good Old Lady's Name. A certain college president employed a housekeeper named Green. One day when the president's wife had com- I pany Mrs. Green entered the room and was introduced to a caller. When the guest was about to do- 4} part she found herself unable to recall the housekeeper's name, but knew it: signified a color, and concluded it must be Brown so she politely said. "Good-bye, .Mrs. Brown 1 am very glad to have met you." At the supper table the incident was related to thfi president as a good joke on Mrs. Green. "She called you I Irs. Brown, did she?" said the president. "Well, that was much better than to have been called Mrs. Gray or Mrs. Red, Mrs. Yellow or Mrs. Black, wasn't it?" "I suppose that is the way to look at it." replied the housekeeper, "but 1 declare I never felt so green in my life." "Oh. well! It was of no consequence. I wouldn't feel blue about It,' sooth ingly advised Mr. President. He Misled Them. "What lias become of that Mr. Jol liem who used to be so fond of your little Pereival?" we ask of the proud mamma. "Oh,' she says, "don't mention that detestable person to me again!-" "lint why? He seemed thoroughly enraptured with the child. He was always dshdling it on his knees and getting it to talk for him" "That's just it. He would take lit tle Pereival en his lap and stuff the I child with candy, and encourage him in every way to try to talk, and then -and then" "And then what? He didn't try to kidnap the infant?" "Worse than that!" she lamented. "We learned that he was tllfl manager of a biscuit factory, and his only pur pose in fawning-over our darling was to Si I him to say something that could he converted into a name for a new brand of goods." Estate Easily Settled. An attorney from Houston, Tex., tells this story of Judge Roy Bean, justice of the peace in the Lone Star state. who*is known better as "The Law West of the Pecos River": He held a coroner's inquest on a Mexican who had been found dead i near the Pecos river. The jury brought in a verdict of accidental death. The I crowd was dispersing when the judge i calhd them back. I "There is another matter to attend to," he said. "On this man's body was i found $",( and a six-slTooter. It is I contrary to the laws of Texas and to the peace and dignity of the state to i earn concealed weapons. Therefore i confiscate the revolver and fine the deceased $1. The costs in the case are $49, which just settles his estate." One of Bismarck's Cousins. At Niederlheme in Germany lives a strange man. He is a first cousin of the late Prince Bismark, but he claims a higher lineage than this, for he tells everyone tha he is the Mes siah. He spends all of his time in the forest and will have nothing to do with civilization. Recently a peas- I ant asked him what he thought of death, and he replied: "The time is approaching when I will be the only person on earth, for i I am the Messiah, and the kingdom that is promised to me will soon bo I established. Then champagne will flow freely and all will be hanuv'' Astute Italian Uramati6t. An Italian dramatist, unable to per 1mala, any mauam.!-. to produce his. i oiay, gave a public reading of it.
