FOSTER DENTIST 3IILES BRICK BLOCK, BEMIDJI, MI'N ASSESSMENTS Board of Equalization Met Yes terday and Made Several Changes. The county board of equaliza tion met at the court house yes terday and is again in session to day. Members are busy going over the assessment rolls, and several changes are being made. Yesterday afternoon assess ments on several of the business houses about town were raised. It was found that they had not been assessed at their real values. One or two were low ered. The board proposes to treat all alike and equalize the assessment, making every man pay for what he has and no less nor no more. There will be more interesting developments today. The saloon men of the city have been summoned to appear before the board. No reason was given, but it is reported that the assess ments on most of the saloons will be raised. No Change. Duluth will not be made a mem ber of the American Association of baseball clubs this year. Negotiations for the transfer of the Milwaukee franchise and team to that city are cut off, and it has been decided to keep the Milwaukee team where it is. A counter proposition has been made, however, and that is the giving of a Western laegue fran chise to Duluth and transferring the Milwaukee team of the league to Duluth.

LAR- SOX, the Eye Specialist, will be at the City hotel during the encampment. Do not neglect to have your eyes attended to. The Park Region Encampment of the G. A. R. opened today with an attendance as large, as could be expected on the first day. It was not thought likely that many veterans would arrive until today, but the local post was happily surprised yesterday when several visiting posts got off the incoming trains and sought out their quarters. There was quite a bunch of the old soldiers with their wives and families in town at nightfall. Some of them remained at the hotels over night and others im mediately took up their quarters in the tents assigned them in the city park. By tonight nearly* every one of the dozens of tents now standing in silent rows on the camping grounds will be oc cupied and the merry talk and laughter of the old comrades, once again united, will be heard far into the night. Every incoming train today brought its quota of old soldku-s with their families and friends. More will arrive tonight and to morrow, until the total number of visitors in Bemidji will reach four or five thousand. Prepara tions for their reception are com plete and the town is in gala at tire. One bunting-covered arch spans Beltrami avenue at the corner of Third and another stretches across Minnesota ave nue in front of the city hall. The stores will have pretty "G..A.R." windows and most of the busi ness houses in town are deco rated with flags and bunting. The various dancing pavilions and speakers' stands about the city are completed and they are also trimmed with gay strips of bunting. The city park, which will be headquarters during the encamp ment, presents a pretty appear ance today. Old soldiers sit grouped about beneath the trees telling over the old stories or giv ing an account of themselves since they met at the encamp ment last year. Among the snowy tents other men, with their wives and daughters, are bustling happily about making arrangements for the night, while the local veterans hover anxiously over the whole, speak ing a cheerful word of welcome here and lending a helping hand there. Indians in twos, threes and bunches stroll through the park, gazing in wondering sur prise at the scene. There is a large contingent of Indians town. They will take part in the big parade Thursday and are also slated to entertain the whites with canoe races, dances and other Indian sports PURSUED BY BEES. Lives Are Saved Only by Leaping Into a Stream. La Crosse, Wis., July 21.
