First Wheat Ever Raised in
County Marketed Today at
Winter & Co.'s.
Raised in Liberty Town by A.
Westgaard and Averaged Twen
five Bushels Per Acre.
The first wheat ever marketed
inBemidji so far as all informa
tion at hand at present extends
was bought at the store of E. H.
Winter & Co. this morning from
A. Westgaard, a Liberty town
ship farmer. Mr. Westgaard re
ceived 90 cents per bushel for it.
The grain is of a good quality
and will grade No. 2 Northern.
Mr. Westgaard raised several
acres of it this season and hasname
just finished threshing the crop.
He reports that the average yield
was about twenty-five .bushels
per acre. It was planted merely
as an experiment and r. West
gaard found it so satisfactory
that he will engage in wheat rais
ing on a larger scale next year.
Highly Recommended.

Si ice the announcement that
Manager Wheelock has secured
J. Randall Brown, the famous
occult scientist, known as thethem
White Mahatma, for an entertain
ment at the op'.'i'a house next
Monday evening, there is an in
tense interest manifested in his
appearance here, and it is a fore
gone conclusion that he will be
greeted by a large crowd. There
are several prominent citizens of
Bemidji who have witnessed Mr.
Brown's entertainment else
where and say he gives the most
wonderful performance they
ever saw.
It will be remembered that
Mr. Brown came before the pub
lic some twenty-five years ago
and created the most profound
sensation through the exhibition
of the wonderful powers of
intuitive perception or telepathy.
He has since appeared before the
faculties of nearly every scientific
institution in this country and
has traveled all over the world,
and indeed has just returned
from a trip abroad, where he was
Lyle Cory, Highwayman, is Ap
prehended by Sheriff Bailey
Lylo Cory, one of the men im
plicated in the recent holdup at
Wilton, was arrosted yesterday
on a farm near Osage postoffice,
in Hubbard county, by Sheriff
Thos. Bailey and was brought
back to Bemidji last night. Cory
confesses his guilt and will be
bound over to the grand jury.
Cory's whereabouts were con
fessed by his pal, who was ar
rested several days ago ano\ who
told Officers Helmer and
ningham, when put in the sweat
box, that he was working in a
logging camp.
Cory tells a somewhat differ
ent story of the holdup at Wilton
than his pal, who is in the county
jail. He says that he himself
bound and gagged the proprietor
and stuffed a handkerchief in
his mouth. The other man says
he was not bound and gagged,
that they left him standing
in the middle of the floor.
Cory was taken by surprise
yesterday or he would no doubt
have resisted arrest. He was
alone at the farm house Where he
was working and was showing a
neighbor some of the stock in the
barn. He had several guns, but
unfortunately none of them were
on his person.
Bad Bunch at County Jail.
There are at present 18 pris
oners at the county jail, and
Sheriff Bailey says they have the
general air and appearance of
being the toughest crowd the
county bastile has ever had
together at one time. Five of

A Pioneer reporter was accord
ed an interview with the great
psychical demonstrator at the
Markham today and found him
to be an interesting conversation
alist. Among other things he
told of that notorious test given
some years ago, in which he al
lowed himself to be buried alive
in Minneapolis.
"I possess the faculty," said
Mr. Brown, "of making my mind
a perfect blank and remaining in
a semi-unconcious condition or in
a state of repose for an indefinite
length of time. In the test I
gave in Minneapolis I reduced
myself to this condition, and
with my eyes, ears and nose
sealed with wax, was placed in
the casket and lowered into the
ground, and the earth filled in as
an ordinary case of burial. I re
mained there three full days."
This was one of the most ex
traordinary experiences that was
ever undergone by a human be
ing and Mr. Brown's detailed ac
count of it is interesting to the
highest degreo. This is but one
of his long string of interesting
reminiscences which he recounts.
He is a remarkable man, and any
one who attends his demonstra
tions at the opera house Monday
evening ought to be well enter
i tained.

Sheriff Bailey Says Carl Swenson
in Not Popular in Wash
ington State.
Sheriff Thos. Bailey was avail
able at the court house this morn
ing for the first time for
weeks. Mr. Bailey went to the
county seat of Washington about
two*' weeks ago with Mrs. Clara
Swenson, the insane woman. Im
mediately upon his return he
took Wm. Reade to the state
penitentiary and as soon as he
had returned from this trip he
went to Osage and arrested Lyle
Cory, who is wanted for high
way robbery. Mr. Bailey says
he is not as favorably impressed
with the coast country as he
might have been. He first took
Mrs. Swenson to her old home at
Newport. He found that her
husband had left there and gone
to Yakima to work. At the coun
ty seat of Stevens county, where
Mrs. Swenson was turned over
to the sheriff, her case aroused
considerable indignation and Mr.
Bailey says it will never do for
Swenson to put in an appearance
there as the people are quite
thoroughly angered. Swenson
is a worthless printer and ha
badly abused his wife and family of
eight children. The oldest, a boy
of eleven years, is working for his
board and attending school at
one of the towns in that vicinity.

Enevold Murder Trial Is On
at Cass Lake But Jury Is
Hard to Get.
County Attorney Will Be Assisted
in Prosecution by Judge Mon
tague of Crookston.
The Enevold murder trial is at
present the order with the ses
sion of the district court in
Walker. Judge McClenehan is
sitting in the case. All of yester
day was put in in examining
jurors. There have been several
special venires and while jurors
were examined all day yesterday
only two had been secured at six
o'clock last night. Judge Mon
tague of Crookston has been ap
pointed by Attorney General
Douglas to assist in the prosecu
tion and the case will be one of
the greatest interest.
The defendant is Martin Ene
vold and the killing was the re
sult of a drunken quarrel that
occurred at Cass Lake on the
night of July 13th. Enevold is
fifty years old, a shoemakp" by
trade and a cripple. He is ordi
nary peaceable except when
drinking. On the evening of the
date mentioned, he with Ole
Moen and Samuel Gilstad en
gaged in a scuffle in a saloon at
Cass Lake, and the other two
got Enevold down on the floor.
No serious consequences result
ed and the bartender made them
let up. It is alleged that he then
proceeded to arm himself, and
although his quarrel was with
Gilstad he returned to the saloon
and Moen coming in he shot him
twice. After lingering two
months Moen died. The plea of
Enevold will be self defense.
