BEMIDJI'S BOOM. More than 150 houses are either in the course of construction -in Bemidji at the present time or have been completed within the past few weeks. They have all been started this season, and the foundations for new buildings are being laid almost daily. This building record is a re markable one and one which the citizens of the town may well point to with pride. The Daily Pioneer has published in its col umns from time to time inter views with prominent visitors ex pressing their opinion on the rapid and solid growth of the town, and these opinions are de cidedly complimentary. Bemidji's boom has been a sub stantial one. It is not a mere bubble as so many booms are, which are liable to break at any moment, but is in the nature of a lasting and prosperous growth. The breaking of booms in towns which have sprung up like mushrooms in the night is often caused by the failure or re moval of irresponsible manufac turing concerns attracted to the new townsite by alluring bon uses. These institutions are naturally followed by'"crowds of workmen with their families, many of whom have barely enough money to land them in the new town. Rows of com pany houses are built, company stores put in,, etc. When the factories leave or break up in business the workman is left on the town. He does not own -his home and has no other interest in the town other than to make enough money to keep alive. In Bemidji the houses that have gone up this spring and summer are almost without ex ception built by residents of the town, many of them workmen who desire to own their homes. A large proportion of the houses in Bemidji are occupied by their owners who intend to reside here for years to come. They are not dependent on cheap man ufacturing concerns for their living. HE anti-kissing society formed at the Northwestern university last winter has disbanded. The two prime movers in the crusade .against frivolity became engaged and recanted.

New London, Conn., June 27.For the first time on record Yale tri umphed over Harvard in all three of their boat races in the annual regat ta on the Thames. Yale won the eight-oared 'varsity race by three and one-half lengths. In all three races Harvard put up a memorable fight and went down to defat after gallant struggles in which her boys rowed out the last ounce of their strength. Yale's three victories are attributed by the experts to the superiority of the stroke taught Yale by John Ken nedy over that taught Harvard by her graduate coaches. So far as phys ical form was concerned there was no choice between the crews, except with the possible exception that the Yale freshmen outweighed their Harvard rivals by over seven pounds to the man. The 'vari/ty race was a sur prise. The freshman race was con ceded to Yale, while the four-oared race was also given to Yale in the great majority of the predictions. RECOVERED THE PAINTINGS.

Arid Consequently Did Not Need First Floor Rooms. American pushfulness is an unlim ited quantity. The women are as ir repressible in society as the men if commerce. A ortain visitor to th.r Riviera found tnls out recently. He was occupying first floor rooms at a well-known hotel. An of a sudden, without any introduction or prelim inary, a note was brought to him signed by the wife of a well-known American millionaire.

"The other day she descended to the laundry to oversee the family wash in her busy little way. She gave one look of utter astonishment as Ma.ry put on the clothes to boil, and then fairly flew upstairs to her mother, ex claiming: 'Oh, mamma! What do you think? Marys cocking the clothes for din- ner!'"New York Times. Cheerfulness Counts. The Cosmopolitan says the longevity of the medical man is materially less than that of workers of other profes sions.

A class in a Sunday school was list ening to a lesson on patience. The topic had been carefully explained, and as an aid to understanding the teach er had given each pupil a card bearing the picture of a boy fishing. "Even pleasure," Eaid she, "requires the exer cise of patience. Look at the boy fish ing! He must sit and wait and wait. He must be patient." Having treated the subject very fully, she began with the simplest, most practical question: "And now can any little boy tell ma what we need most when we go Ash- ing?" With one voice was the answer shouted"bait!" Evicted Kaffirs. The correspondent of a London pa per, writing from British South Afri ca, says the Kaffirs are bound to In crease in population more rapidly than the whites, whom they already greatly outnumber, and, being barred from work in many cases by the Im portation of cheap labor from India and forced to leave their land hold ings, which they retain only under lease from the Boers, to whom it has been allotted, and under liability of eviction, a serious uprising of the na tives is not beyond the possibilities of the near future.
