Too Many Risks Were Involved in the Transaction. Capt. Risk -of the Mailory line steamer Denver, plying between New York and Galveston, Texas, is a bach elor who attaches a great deal of im portance to the question, "What's in a name?" when applied to the matri monial question, va one, recent trip a party of passengers were discussing matrimony when the capu.in strolled up. "By the way. captain," said one of the party, "how does it happen you've never married?" "Oh, he could never find a woman willing to run the Risk." interjected one of the feminine members of the group. "No, indeed," observed tlio mariner "no one can run this Risk I'm cap tain. And no one seems to want to take the risk, either," he added. New York Times. (B36) "TH E INVISIBLES" I. Meyer and A. L. Wyler, the two gentlemen whose pictures appear above and who for some time past have been the local whist champions, were defeated in the second of a series of games at the whist club last night. They have taken on and defeated many noted whist players, including Schneider, Foster, Lang and others. Mr. Meyer evidenced ability as a whist player early in life and says his knowledge of seven-up has been wonderful help to him. Mrelection Wyler acquired his early experience while a deck hand on a Missouri river steamboat running between Fort Benton and Mug's Landing, when he often indulged in the game of soltaire during his spare moments, an upturned cider cask serving as a table. The Messrs. Meyer and Wyler are anxious to meet W. W. Browne and V. George, but have denied a second game to the Messrs. Foster and Schneider, on the grounds that the latter are outclassed.

WMW/tt partment of Agriculture. Fruit breeders have produced many marvels, but nothing quite akin to the unaided performance of a tree in For farshire. Scotland, which last year grew apples, and v^hose branches are this year reported to be laden with pears. There are more than 500 dif ferent standard kinds of apples on the English market and more than S00 different kinds of pears, but a tree with an alternating crop of apples and pears is an mi ccoiintable oddity. New varieties of fruit are frequently pro duced in the laboratories of the Unit ed States department of agriculture, where fruit, breeding is carried to a scientific perfection, other experi menters have made wonderful drosses with peaches and nectarines, and (lie' plumcot is a new fruit obtained by breeding the Japanese plum and the common apricot.

MATTER MM BE AS ISSUE AT SPRING ELECTION Tide of Public Sentiment Sets in Against Resorts Occupying Present Position. Unless there is a decided change in public sentiment as itall is at present daily expressed it is probable that the removal of the hill resorts to a location that will not be so exalted and public as the one they occupy at present will be issue at the spring that will have but slight opposition. The live resorts which the city is at present compelled to tol erate occupy one of the most preeminent locations in the city. They arc the first thing to greet the eye of the strang er who arrives in the city [on the Great Northern.trams and a're in easy walkijiir distance of Markham hotel and the prin pchml business streets' of the city. The matter of i hoir remov..1 to some place I hill will not be- sobeing [public has been generally talked i for some time by the betteTTilass 'of cil'nvns but so Car as the Pioneer has been able to learn i there has newer been but oncussing systematic, effort made to secure i their removal, started by the Rev. Higgins some time ago arid i abandoned, Mr. Higgins states, I because hew is unable to receive support and gain he ope rat ion of those \vh i were in the best [posiiion to accomplish the result which he desired.

The Bemidji Ice Rink, Joseph Burns, proprietor, will be form ally opened to the public tomor row afternoon. Skating will be free to everybody. The ice is in i tine condition and Mr. Burns ex i poets a largo crowd. Th rink lis large and roomy and will be kept up in good shape. Season tickets are being sold and an ad I mission ticket can always be had at the rink office. The rink has on hand a large line of skates and the necessaries to enjoying the exhilarating sport of skating, Mr. Burns hope's by careful man agement to make the rink a pop ular as well as a profitable resort. There will bo a number of races during the winter, a masquerade skate after a time and other fea tures that will commend the rink to the public generally. proprietors and a general disposi tion on their part to feel that j'they are entitled to social con sideration, if not for their virtue for their money, has for some time lie.'ii Haunted and is giving rise to a tide of public sentiment which the wise, ones say will re sult in the removal ef the houses i flat issue at the spri ng campaign. lhop.it owners iu the vicinity of the hill are par ticularly active at present in dis the removal of the houses. Bemidji is growing I rapidly and the value of property close to the center of the city is constantly increasing. However, property in the vicinity of the houses is not desirable for ob vious reasons. Not all nor the major portion of the sentiment comes from the property owners, nevertheless. The general senti ment is that the city is growing i) rapidly to longer tolerate the houses in their present location. Small children are compelled to pass them daily in going to and from school, and while it must in all justice be stated that, they are conducted in as orderly a man ner as it is possible to conduct places of that character they are still a constant source of scandal and annoyance. The business agents of the hill, those who look after and antici pate just, such contingencies as are arising at present, state that the joints will not be moved. They say that it has been tried before and that the plan could not bo made to stand up. They have had no hesitancy in con necting the most unpleasant ru mor with the. name of Rev. E. Higgins and the part betook in agitating for their removal some time ago. It has even gone so far that insinuations have been made that Mr. Higgins has been bought off. While direct charges have not been made they cite it as a significant fact that Mr. Hig gins suddenly dropped the cam paign he had commenced against them. In connection with this matter it may be stated that Mr Higgins last night stated to the Pioneer that he courted the full est and freest investigation into his connection with the matter. He states that he is at present and always has been heartily in favor of the removal of the houses. will aid and co-operate in any way that ho can with a move ment looking to that end. Several of the hill proprietors censider themselves quite a necessary adjunct to the welfare of 1 he city. They can state with out a moment's figuring just how much they are worth to the city in dollars and cents and have been particularly arrogant of late. Public sentiment is fast erystalizing for their removal in all quarters. This is the day when people are looking for big returns from small investments. You are as* sured good returns if you use our want column.
