VOLUME 1. NUMBER 83.
ST. CLOU EASILY WO N GAM E Grand Forks Fought Hard But Went Down to Defeat. HEAVY HITTING WAS FEATURE OF THE GAME. Was an Unusual Amount of Bet ting, With St. Cloud the Favorite. A fight on second base, one home run, three three-base base hits and two two-baggers were a few of the interesting features of yesterday's ball game. The final score stood 9 to 5 in favor of jrt St. Cloud, and the latter did not have to play her half of the ninth inning. Grand Forks gave as an ex cuse for defeat the fact that she had left her best pitcher and and catcher at home to prepare for today's game with Duluth. Something was lacking for the Forkers were at the mercy of St. Cloud at all stages of the game. In two hours of play they won an easy victory. Grand Forks ran in three of her scores in the ninth inning, when Kilroy, who relieved Wilson, the St. Cloud pitcher, early in the sixth inning weakened and was easily hit. Scott, who was catching for Grand Forks, caught a swift ball in his bare hand early in the game and suffered a split finger, making it necessary for him to be relieved. In the eighth inning Bennet, the doughty little short stop for St. Cloud had a differ ence of opinion with a base run ner. The two came to blows but were seperated before blood was drawn. Rooting was loud and there was an unusual amount of bet ting. St. Cloud seemed to be the favorite from the start. Wilson, the star negro pitcher for St. Cloud, was in great trim and it was a joy to see him at work. The Grand Forks pitcher, McKenna, was being tired out, and there was plenty of room for improvement in his work. There was, an attendance of 1,600 at the game. Following is the line-up and score: Grand Forks: Nehr, cf Sharn weber, ss: Corrigan, If Lucas, rf Cole, lb Cardou, 2b Hanra han, 3b Scott, McKenna, p.

It would be a good idea for our property owners to take their little hammers and go to knock ing at the nail heads which are sticking out of the sidewalk's all over town. They are not only hard on shoes but they catch ladies' dresses also. A conserv ative estimate places the number of dresses torn in this manner yesterday while the crowd was in town at thirty. ENCAMPMENT NEXT YEAR Bemidji Has Been Offered the Next G. A. R. State Convention. MAS S MEETING WiLL BE HELD AT CITY HALL T0XIGHT. Every Citizen Requested to Be Present to Discuss the Proposition. Bemidji can have the state G. A. R. encampment next year and for many years to come if she wants it. It has been volun tarily offered to her by those in the G. A. R. who have control. The chance is one that every city in the state, from Minneapolis down, would jump at, and if Be midji fails to make the most of the opportunity it will be a serious blow to her future growth. A mass meeting of all the citizens of the town will be held at the city hall toniglit at 8 o'clock and all those interested in seeing the interests of the town advanced should not fail to be present. The meeting will be for the purpose of discussing the encampment matter and making a final decision as to whether or not the citizens are interested enough in the project to take hold of the opportunity and make adequate provision for caring for the old soldiers and their freinds should the encampment be located here. The camp would be of inestim able value to Bemidji and once secured it would come here every year, for it is not custom ary to change the site of the state encampment from year to year. For many years past it has been in St. Paul and Minne apolis, and a continual fight has been waged to see which would get it. The expenses for the veterans are so high in these cities that the officers of the organization thought that it would oe adviseable to make a change to a smaller town, where \ents could be pitched and' the expenses would not be so great. Of all the towns in the state Bemidji was selected. This speaks well for the town. The very fact of the state meet being held here would mean a great jimiout of free advertising for weeks ahead, to say nothing of the immediate benefits to be de rived. Five or six thousand people would be here for a week each year. It is proposed to hold the next encampment in June. If it comes here the tents will be pitched in the vicinity of Diamond Point. HIG THIS YEAR Special Rates to the Harvest Fields Go Into Effect Today. The rates to the harvest fields from the Twin Cities and head of the lakes go into effect today.

The St. Cloud baud, which had been brought along, gave an open air concert at the corner of Beltrami avenue and Third street. There was a good deal of kick ing at the exorbitant prices charged by the draymen for carrying the' people to the fair grounds. A fare of 25 cents each way was charged.~ Those having the game in charge claim that all the draymen had agreed before hand to charge only ten cents each way. At this price there would have been a good margin of profit. Everett-Jensen. Married last Saturday at the home of the bride's sister. .Mrs. F. L.

Grain experts who are familiar with the sit uation believe that the yield this year will be the best for the past three years.

All judges of any degree of re liability believe that the valley will see the largest crop of wheat within the past three years.
