PUBLISHED EVERY AFTERNOON. PIONEER PUBLISHING CO. By R. W. HITCHCOCK. Entered in the postofliee at Bemidji, Minn., as second class matter.

Business is not so good in these United States today as it was one year ago. Bemidji is no exception. A campaign year is always em harassing to business. But in Bemidji there is also something else to blame. The big lumber companies are not getting out so many logs this winter in this section as they did last. They may have to put their money and their energy into the Chippewa pine as fast as possible so they are withholding the axe from the pine tree elsewhere. The more logging the better for Bemidji and the present slack time in logging and its effect up on business in general in this city points a very plain moral. Bemidji must have other things flour mills, the development of its water power, manufactures of all kinds, agriculture, etc., to de pend upon. The review of business condi tions published in the Pioneer yesterday shows that the busi ness men of Bemidji realize this iact. It will not be long before Bemidji wil be fairly independent of its logging and lumber in dustries. Every man should help to speed the day. Sunday closing law has been called in question and the supreme court will short ly give the answer. Whether the law stands or falls it is pretty certain that some form of a Sun day law will in time be perma nently placed in the statute books of the state. Whether it will be observed and if so in what de gree will depend entirely upon each individual community. Each community gets just about the law and order that the general public thereof demands. HE truth about the scrap in the state teachers' association seems to be that the association stumbled upon a president who believes in doing business in a business like way. The fossils who have been in control have al ready a very severe shaking up at the hands of President Mc Intyre, and it is said that they have several jolts coming yet. GOVERNOR VAN SANT A PARCEL has fore sworn the governorship and a seat in the United States senate and will be quite satisfied, thank you, with being boss of the re publican party of the state of Minnesota. containing $10,000 has been lost in the mails be tween Winnipeg and Vancouver. If found return to this office and receive reward. THE lands the state has fought for are swamp lands alright and so Minnesota's, and the state has now several thousands of acres of additional reasons for digging drainage ditches. GOVERNOR VAN SANT by his refusal to become a candidate for a third term has raised himself in the esteem of everybody. Now if he will announce his resolution to make good Tais promises of support to Dunn he will stand still higher with the people of Minnesota.

Aurora has a new dawning incorporation. o Now they've got a brass band with which to blow the virtues of Mizpah. The north country newspaper, being one itself, has good reason to know the value of the pioneer. N& JMtfL.. The Fergus Falls Globe de mands to know who owns the earth. Well, we are doing our best. The Red Men of Walker will endeavor to lend a little color to the town on the evenin 12th inst. of the The Cass Lake Times is per suaded that all the recent Chip pewa pine sales will eventually be set aside. The Eveleth Mining News has organized a pipe dream club and is digging up a lot of very strange stories. Beltrami counxy farmers may not be long on wheat but they have turkeys enough to tide the whole state over the holiday season. A brand new baby girl has ar rived at the home of Judge and Mrs. Sharp of Moorhead and we are assured that the young miss already cuts a good deal of ice in the household. The Detroit City municipal water works plant clears up $2200 during the first seven months of its existence, and De troit invites the rest of us to chew a while on the fact. The Gully Sunbeam has been having a hard time of it. It ex cuses its average of four local items to the week on thegrounds that it has to deal with such people as a young man who could not tell the editor the name of his bride a constituent bobs up with the suggestion that the paper would be more appropriate ly named "The Gully Sunspot and worse than all, in Editor Hunt's absence the devil spells all the words in the paper so nearly right that nobody hus recognized the sheet this week. It seems that not every north country man bewails the new game law for here is one that breaks into the Itasca County News with such poetic rejoicings as these: Conic, now, O Partridge, sound your drum sit will. Heat long and loud. The hunter Shall not kill. Gome feathery tribes, and fearless sing and II.v: We are jour friends you shall not die. Com6 out.

In Abyssinia one method of doing the hair that is adopted by warriors is to stroll into the market place, buy a pound of butter and, putting it upon the top of the hair, stand still while the sun arranges things. When the hair is thus dressed with melted but ter the Abyssinian knows that fate cannot (or will not) touch himh is a picture of well-dressed elegance done in oils. Another style is to tress the hair and every tress means some thing. A young warrior with a head of hair untressed is of no account he as not yet killed a man When, how ever, he has done so all his hair is shaved off except enough to make one tress, which is of the same significa tion as a notch on a pistol stock. Af ter that every man he kills entitles him to add another tress, until as a conquering hero of 100 tresses he Is a formidable men to try conclusions with. ONE PACKAGE HE FORGOT. Good Story That Is Told on Absent Minded Farmer. A story is going the rounds regard ing a farmer who is greatly troubled with absent-mindedness. On the way home from town, as the story runs, he thought came to him that he had forgotten something. took out his notebook, went over every item, checked it off, and saw that he had made all the purchases he had intend ed. As he drove on he could not put aside the feeling that there was some thing missing. took out his note book and checked off every item again, but still found no mistake. did this several times, but could not dis miss the idea that he must have for gotten something. When he arrived at home and drove up to the house his daughter came out to meet him, and, with a look of surprise, asked: "Why where is maw?" A Song of Love. In the blue morn, the new morn Beneath a sun-filled sky. Oh, I mt a little love When all the clouds were high A little love, a wistful love I would not have him stay I loosed his hands, and kissed his lips. And bade him fly away. In the warm noon, the sweet noon. When all the air waa gold, Oh, I met a fair, great love. With merry ayes and bold So wise, so strong, so wonderful. Too high for my estate, He loosed my hands and kissed my lips And left me desolate. In the deep night, the cold night, Who comes through wind and rain Little love I bade away Is at my side again. And he hath warmed my hands in his, And kissed my wet eyes dry Oh. strange that he should comfort me For that great love gone by. John Winwood, in Smart Set. I P. F. FOLKER'S JEWELRY CO.
