Last evening'sCrookston Times presents to its readers this de- lectable morsel of "news:" Bemidji, since the organ ization of the house cleaning brigade at EH st Grand Pork's, has become the "Mecca" JEor sports and tinhorns of all descriptions. Nearly all of the suspects from the east side have migrated to the tall pine. The east side has, until the rocent explosion, held the undisputed honor of being the toughest place in the state with Bemidji a very close second. It is probably from present indications that Bemidji will now pull upirvo the front rank and that East Grand' Porks will fall several notches in the gentle race of lawlessness and iniquity. Itfot one word of the above item is truth in so far as it refers to Bemidji. There has been no in- flux of "sports and tinhorns" and there are today in Bemidji fewer gentry of this description than ever before. As fori law- lessness Bemidji is today a bet- ter governed city than is Crooks- ton. The testimony of every man ot expedience who comes to Bemidji is that the city is better policed than any cit.v nf i+~"~-- v* ungur cue state. The truth is that the Times man who penned the above item simply drew on his imagination in order to "make" news. Be- luse Bemidji has been a frontier town and a lumbering town and the lumberjack a numerous tran- sient through it the Times man, like many others, takes it for grantedt hat the town is a modern Sodom and that it is dangerous for a decent man. to walk abroad in its streets. Hence such ereaturas of the imagination as we have quoted above. This is very loose talk, and the making of news at the expense of others is very coarse news- paper work. HE hopelessness of Judge Collins' candidacy seems to have nearly driven Alvah Eastman of the St. Cloud Journal Press* mad. for it is leading him to say such things as this: That perennial grafter, Granville Shylock Pease, of the Anoka Union, insists that the Journal-Press editor is very ungrateful because it does not throw down its home candidate for governor and support the gentleman from Princpton. That insane hospital sewer seems to have submerged Granville's last ray of intelligence. THERE is a frightful commo tion in the gray matter in the brain of the editor of the St. Cloud Times and all because President Roosevelt filed the let ter I a little Kansas miss among ihe state papeis in the matter of the appointment of a federal judge in that state. The Times accuses the president of being sentimental, and possibly he is we hope so. A little of the senti mental mixed with the strenuous makes a pretty good sort of man. IT IS doubtful whether any de partment of government has yielded the people of this country greater returns than the depart ment of agriculture. The work of the department in original re search alone has put millions of dollars into the pockets of the farmers at practically no ex pense to them. N. BITS 5 FROM MHE NORTH! COUNTR Breese, Marshall county, is badly blown about with a diph theria scare. The Grand Rapids Building & Loan Association knows no build ing seasons in its steady growth. The location of the'Cass County Agricultural fair is plowing up a big field of dissension in our neighbor to the east. The Woodmen gather some 300 strong at Long Prairie tonight and before they rise from the banquet board many a stately tree in the forest of wit will have been cut down. The Aitkin Age is old enough in Minnesota politics to know that the attempt to abolish the right of counties to five delegates at large to the republican state convention will not be stood by northern Minnesota. It seems like the prostitution of a noble poem, but it is as true as it is clever. The Mallard Call is to blame for it any way. Here it is: Half a jag, half a jag:. Half a jag on liini. Swayed not by frlendsj nor foes. Up to the bar he goes. There stops .until he blows His roll of Six Hundred. Grafters to the right of him Grafters to the left of him, Grafters in front of him. Jollied and iVHWdon why. Theirs not to stand and buy. Theirs but to blow the guy With the Six Hundred. Boldly the light brigade Drankbut not lemonade, And up so long they staid. All the world wondered. Faster the jollies flew. And as the number grew,, Swifter the sucker blew His fading Six Hundred. Then when the wad is shot, Quickly they leave the spot, But each a jag has got, Nobody blundered. Oh, the wild charge they made. When shall their glory fade. Not while Old Crow is made. Or guys with Six Hundred. W. C. JONES Only paint shop between Duluth and Crookston Paints Oils G-lass Varnishes Kalsomines Brushes Full Line Latest Wall Papers SMBBBBBBSa Livery Stable A. N.
