EDWARD KAISER, Publisher. Entered in the postofflce at Bemtdji, Minn., aslsccond class niattor. PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. Official County and City Paper. AMONG other evidences of the rapidity with which the northern counties of Minnesota are now filling up is the fact that out of thirty-eight new postoffices es tablished in this state between ec-1, 1902, and June I, 1003, as show by the current number of theUnited States Postal Guide all but five are in those counties. The same publication shows the discontinuance of seventy-four class postoffices in Minnesota, in Minnesota, in the same period most of them in the older regions of the state. The service of fifty five of these was replaced by that far better article, rural free delivery.

HONOR NORWAY'S GREAT MAN. Soldiers Accord Popular Author a Magnificent Demonstration. One day while in iMorway an oppor tunity was given to an American trav eler to see that the name of Bjorn stjerne Bjornson means much to all Norwegians. "A battalion of Nor wegian and Swedish cavalry, infantry and artillery, between 3,u00 and 4,0ud strong, was returning from its maneu vers to the post in Christiania," he says. "In passing Aulestad the gen eral in command sent his adjutant in advance to get Bjornson's permission to give him an ovation. With his fam ily and guests assembled about him on the veranda the monumental figure stood with bared head I receive the military greeting. As each regiment passed in review below, presenting arms as to their chieftain, there went up a deafening shout of personal salutation from each of the soldiers, who then joined singing the nation al hymn, to whose author they were offering this spontaneous salute. There was the unique spectacle of a man in private life, being accorded a military demonstration by the nation's army which a king might envy." RELIEF FOR RUSSIAN WOMEN. Newly Enacted Law a Blessing to Abused Peasants' Wives. By a newly enacted Russian law a peasant's wiffj on showing to the dis trict judge d'instruction that she is habitually ill treated by her husband, or that he will not support her, and makes her the drudge for his own sup port, can demand a separate passport, with which she is at liberty to leave her oppressor and earn a living else where. Hitherto there was no possible redress or release for the long-suffer ing victim so long as it was obligatory that the wife's name was entered in the husband's passport and papers of legitimate. Anyone at all intimately acquainted with village life in Russia will readily appreciate the relief this brings to tens of thousands of peasant women who are the grievously abused domestic slaves and beasts of burden to their drunken and brutal conjugal DroDrietora, MhLTING OLD PLATES, Ton* of Thoic Used for Printing Money to Serve as Ship Ballast, This was "melting day" at the Bu reau of Engraving and Printing. All the plates, rolls and dies uzed in print ing gold and silver certificates, postage ancLrevenue stamps, bonds and postal cards during 1901 were loaded early this morning n two big trucks. Al though the precaution had been taken to spoil the face of each plate with a file, four strapping employes of the Treasury Department rode on each truck. A Treasury committee rode in a carriage. The procession went to the Navy yard foundry, where the plates were unceremoniously dumped into one of the furnaces, to come out as pig steel and to be used for ballast for war ahips. There were twenty tons of plates, rolls and dies, from which were printed last year $2,200,000,000 in gold and silver certificates of various denominations, and $889,000,000 in postage stamps, besides hundreds of millions of bonds, revenue stamps and postal cards.

Physicians of Millionaires Must Be Up to Date. Such a man as Rockefeller or Mor gan is a life study for a physician, and the man who can keep in perfect order a human machine of vast im portance in the community is worthy of Schwabian compensation. The big insurance companies are willing to employ a physician at $100,000 a year to keep either of the gentlemen mentioned alive ten years longer. "My" doctor in such a case must know what medicine to prescribe whenever Morgan or Rockefeller sneezes, frowns, swears, limps, groans, growls, thunders, kicks over the waste basket, smokes too many cigars, drinks too much water, eats too heartily of. corned beef and cab bage, talks too much to his Bible class, charges too small a commisu sion for promoting a trust or reor ganizing a railroad, telegraphs sena tors to bold up anti-trust legislation, or commit, any other little indiscre tion that billionaire flesh is heir to.

Mrs. Langtry attended a reception In New York last week and roused much envy among fashionables who were present because of her beautiful complexion, which is really a marvel. Subsequently a rather faded beauty exclaimed: "How on earth does she do It? Why, she's 50 if she's a minute." Another grande dame, who spoke as though she knew, gave this explana tion: "It's Jersey, her birthplace. You know Mrs. Langtry spends six or eight weeks every season ov her farm there. She wears a short skirt and thick bootssometimes no boots at all goes about in a sunbonnet and lives like a farm gfrl. The fog of the island does the -est," The New Chinese Minister. Rev. William E. Griffis corrects a published statement that Sir Chen tung Liang Cheng, the new Chinese minister, is a graduate of Yale. He merely studied there, being one of 120 students brought to this country by Yung Wing. The minister ex plains that the first part of his name, Chentung, corresponds to the Ameri can John. The middle part, his fam ily name, Is pronounced Leeang. His title, about which there has been a good deal of talk, was bestowed by the British government after the au thorities of his own country had con sented that he accent it. Mean to Enforce Sabbath Laws. Sheriff Cummings of Lewiston Me., has undertaken a partial enforcement of the old blue laws by compelling the confectionery shop-owners to shut up on Sunday. These storekeepers are charging discrimination and now threaten to serve papers upon the sheriff in an action which will force him to carry his crusade even further and enforce to the very letter all the famous old purity statutes. This will mean, as is their purpose, that busi ness and labor of all kirds must cease upon the Sabbath, ana even the newsboys will be driven from the streets and the electric cars preva ed from operating. Rising American Oarsman. A young man with the poetic name of Fernand Demoruelle, son of a for mer police commissioner of New Or leans, will be the representative of the Young Men's Gymnastic club of that city to compete In the trying out of the American oarsmen on Harlem river, New York, on the occasion of the Harlem regatta If he succeeds in passing he will be one of the com petitors for the diamond sculls to be warded at the Royal Henley regatta in England.

A certain duchess paid $25,000 to a London specialist for eliminating a trouble which seriously threatened her beauty. Dr. Sheldon of New York, for curing the daughter of a Standard oil magnate, received se curities worth in the open market $87,000. Who would not like to be a specialist at these figures? A Chinese Innovation. Some foreign clothing has been tak en into the palace at Pekin for the emperor and empress dowager to try on, so that they may come to some decision regarding its introduction in official circles. Should the emperor and empress dowager sanction the wearing of foreign costumes by the court an unprecedented departure -will have been taken. In no way is the conservatism of the Chinese shown more strongly than by their adherence to their national dress, even whes living in Western countries. Women Want Palace Cars. Society women in New Orleans have begun a movement to have the street railway company put on palace cars for their convenience and comfort They say they can not ride in the present cars when they are in after noon or evening dress, as the cars are dirty and there is no telling who their seatmate may be. They do not mind paying extra fares for the use of ex tluslve cars. Fire Extinguisher. Old fashioned women always pro vided themselves with fine gowns for use in the possible event of being forced to face a fire in a scanty night, toilet. The modern women meet the same possibility by storing, In a con venient place in every room, bottles filled with a mixture made from ten pounds of salt, five pounds of sal am moniac and four and a half gallons of water, says the Chicago News. Should a fire start break a bottle or two of this over the burning place. If used in time it wiP put out a small fire, and in any event may delay the ravages of the flames till the engines arrive. Full of Absentees. There was a larger attendance than usual in the "Amc corner" at the Fifth Avenue hotel last night, and these we~e some of the interesting stories told: "Judge Gildersleeve," re marked George W. Wanamaker, "was telling the other night of a laughable 'bull' made by Maj. Leach, once fa mous as the head of the Irish rifle team. The judge was visiting in Ire land and remarked: 'Major, is it true that much of the trouble in this little country of yours is caused by ab sentee landlords?' 'It is, sir,' re sponded the major. 'Sure, our little is land is full of them.'"New iork Mail and Express. The One Thing Wrong. A foreigner went into one of Bos ton's bi hotels one Suiiday morning not long ago and asked for a typical Boston breakfast. After some con ference with the bead waiter an espe cially nice breakfast was served, in cluding of course codfish balls, brown bread and pork and beans. The visitor ate with apparent relish, but after some minutes summoned his man. "These beans are delicious," he said, "and the coffee could not be better, but"pointing to the codfish ball "you may remove the little bun. There appears to be something dead in it."

Chamberlain Not to Be a Peer. By way of stamping with absurdity the report that Joseph Chamberlain has accepted a peerage, it is pointed out that King Edward would not think of offering a peerage to minister who is within measureable distance of ob taining the premiership, nor would a minister who is in such a position think of transferring himself to the other house unless he had decided to round off his political career.
