Forgot iMaw.
An exchange says: A farmer
went to town to do som shop
ping. On the way back the
thought came to him that lie had
forgotten something. He took
out his notebook, went over every
item, checked it off and saw that
he had made all the purchases he
had intended. As he drove on he
could not put aside the feeling
thet there was something miss
ing. He took out his notebook
and checked off every item again,
but still found no mistake he did
this several times but could not
dismiss the idea that he must
have forgotten something. When
he arrived home and drove up to
the house his daughter came out
to meet him, and with a look of
surprise asked: "Why, where is
maw?"

Crowds of People Express Their
Approval of Campbell Bros.' I
Exhibition.
The great crowds of people,
numbering in the aggregate over
5,000 persons, witnessed tAvo per
formances of the Campbell Bros.'
circus Saturday, July 4. A
highly favorable verdict was
almost unanimously returned by
those who watched the shows
willi critical eye.
The circus was the great fea
ture of the day. Long lanes of
people lined the streets in the
morning when the parade passed
by, and all day the grounds
where the outfit was camped
were covered with sightseers.
The show was a good, clean
exhibition throughout and was
highly creditable to the manage
ment. One of the most pleasing
features was the absence of any
grafters of any sort working in
connection with the show. Every
thing seemed to be on the square
and perfectly orderly. There
were no rough characters in evi
dence, and those connected with"
the circus were courteous in
their treatment of persons at
tending the performances.
The circus was replete with
thrilling performances. The fam
ily of Japs, the other acrobatic
performers, the aerial artists,
the trained elephants, horses and
dogs and the funny clowns all
came in for a good share of ap
plause. There were about 4,000
people at the afternoon perform
ance alone. The management of
the show stated that the attend
ance was the best they had had
this season.

Achenbaeh'.- Says Offi-
cer Can Do This With
out a Warrant.
RENDERED IMPORTANT DECIS
ION THIS MORNING.
Was Claimed That Officer Could
Not Make Such
Arrest.
Several saloon men of the city
have on different occasions ox
pressed it as being their opinion
that a police officer had no right
to enter a saloon and make an ar
rest without a warrant. These
ideas were dispelled this morn
ing by Judge Achenbaeh when
he fined Andy Anderson and J.
Galant. the latter of Solway, $5
each and costs, for fighting in
the Hub saloon.
Last Saturday night the men
were arrested by Officer Helmer.
They claimed that the officer had
no right to arrest them and the
case this morning was the result.
Judge Achenbaeh held that a po
liceman had a perfect right to ar
rest any man creating a disturb
ance in a saloon whether he had
a warrant or not.
Powerful Sermon.
Rev. Wolvern, the young minis
ter of Pittsburg, Pa., who has
been holding Episcopalian serv
ices in the Odd Fellows'Temple
for the past few Sundays, de
livered a powerful sermon last
night to a large and attentive
audience. The evident sincerity
of the minister, supplemented
by his strong powers] of {[ad-
dress and clear and lucid method
of putting a subject before his
hearers has already built him up
a reputation, and each week his
congregation's increase in size.
OU CELEBRATION
Hundreds from Outside Were in
Bemidii on July
Fourth.
There were several hundred
outsiders who spentrthe Fourth
of July in Bemidji. The circus
was the main drawing card. The
trains from Blackduck both Fri
day.and Saturday were well tilled
with people coming here to cele
brate, and there were also a great
many from Cass Lake and from
'other near points on the two
roads entering Bemidji.
A showery and cloudy morn
ing put a damper on the early
Fourth of July celebration. Rain
began falling early in the morn
ing and drove to coveFmany of
the small boys with their noise
makers, and likewise old enthusi
asts with their giant firecrackers.
The order issued by the chief of
police relative to tiring crackers
only on the lake shore did much
to keep down the noise. Many
who would have otherwise shot
off the big crackers did not do
so because they were too lazy to
carry them down the lake. The
order- doubtlessly averted ranch
damage, however.
The weather remained cloudy
up to late in the afternoon, inter
fering extensively with plans for
outings and picnic celebrations.
It rained pretty steadily till L0j30

The log used is a heavy Nor

one on which no man can use his

pear ail the more probable that
Stewart was willing to enter a
fake match, for on a log-like the
one used it is not necessarily the
Scientific man who wins.
The two preliminary matches
to decide who should enter the
final was to be decided by two
throws. In these
Stewart won from Lackey, and
Lefevre from Roach-. The two
victors then mounted the loir,
and in anything hut an exciting

Frank Burke Was Taken to Fer
gus Falls This After-
noon.
Prank Burke, 33 years old, was
adjudged insane in the pro
bate court, this morning and
was taken to the Fergus Palls
asylum this afternoon. Dr. Hen
derson and Dr. Morrison made
the examination.
The case is a jM'culiar one. On
June 2 Burke was examined
but he appeared so rational that
he was left in the care of a friend
to await developments. Develop
ments came and for the last three
nights the friend has had no
sleep Burke refuses to lie down
more than two or three minutes
at a time and he has to be con
stantly guarded to be kept out
of mischief. His favorite trick
is to pull the bed clothes from the
bed and wind them around his
head, seemingly in an attempt to
smother himself. Burke was
married once but his wife left
him. He has (lived in Bemidji
for three vears.
