VERY LOOSE TALKING.
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.

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.
