EXONERATE JENS HANSEN Unite* States Court Failed to Indict Bemidji Saloon keeper. COURT IS MO W IN SESSION AT FERGUS FALLS. Case Was First Tried Before Judge Achenbach in Justice Court. The: grand jury in the United States court, now in session at Fergias Falls, failed to indict .Jens Hansen, the. Bemidji saloon keeper. Bailey & McDonald 7were his attorneys. Mr. Me- DonaLd has just returned from Fergus Falls. This completely exonerates Mr. Hansen. Mr_ Hansen was arrested dur ing tfae recent G. A. R. encamp ment charged with having sold whiskey to the Indians then in town. He was given a trial in Justice Achenbach's court and was dismissed. Judge Achen bach at the time stated there was no doubt but that the liquor had come from the Hansen saloon, but the evidence failed to show that it had been sold with the consent or knowledge of the pro prietor. It appears that a man working about the place had se cured the whiskey and later taken it to the camping ground of the Indians. A waait ad in the Daily Pioneer is a winner. Try one.

Two new school districts have been organized in the Little Fork country, and two others are in the process of formation, making a total of four new districts added during the past summer. The formation of these new districts was rendered necessary by the rapid growth of the popu' 'ation of the Little Fork country. It has proved to be about nthe most popular resort of the home steader, and the records of the land office show a greater num ber of claims filed in this district, than many other under the .con trol of the Duluth land office. The majority of. the claims taken, moreover, have been home steads, very few stone and tim ber applications having been filed on the land in this district. This means, or is supposed to mean, that each claim taken meant an added settler, who is compelled to make his home on his land and reside there with his family. In the majority of cases this law is followed out, but not in all. Subscribe for the Pioneer.

EASY O N THE No Drastic Measures Taken Against Lydick Land Settlers. Commissioner Jones of the In dian bureau says that he would not take any drastic measures with the squatters on the Lydick allotment at Cass Lake. He re turned to Washington yesterday and when notified of the decision said: "As soon as I get official notice that the secretary has awarded the Cass Lake allotment to Mrs. Lydick I shall give her the usual allotment deed, under which she can have the use of the land for twenty-five years, at the end of which time.she will get a patent for it. Under the law all the In dian lands are held in trust by the department for the time mentioned, but there is a pro vision permitting them to lease the allotments at a price to be ap proved by the secretary of the interior. A Secret Trade. The making of carbon paper and typewriter ribbons is a trade secret, known to scarcely two dozen people in the entire world. It has been handed down from father to son for probably a cen tury. So carefully is the secret guarded that the process has never been patented. Much money and time have been spent to discover this secret but to no avail. The secret of brewing golden grain belt beer lies in the use of the purest and ex pensive barley malt and hops. The cost ageing this beer is not considered: it is "how good" and not "how cheap" can the beer be made. The process is an evolu tion worked by years of experi menting and by careful, honest work. The good this beer docs you demonstrates Vbejttei' than the words the success of the effort. John F. Essler, Bemidji.
