GRAN RAPIDS HA S
A CINC Editor Cobb Says Talk Re garding Removal of Pulp Mill Makes Them Smile. IT IS DOING WELL AT GRAND RAPIDS AND WILL STAY. District Court in Session and Big Calendar Is Being Gone Through Rapidly. Editor H. Cobb, of the Park Rapids Enterprise and Grand Rapids Magnet, was in the city last night on his way from Grand Rapids to Park Rapids and stopped-at the Pioneer office last night long enough to make his usual cheery visit. Speaking of the fact that rumor has been current for some time that the Grand Rapids pulp mill might be moved from that city to Bemidji, with the development of the Schroeder water power, Mr. Cobb says the matter only makes them smile at Grand Rapids and no one down that way is visibly worried about it just yet. Mr. Cobb says the Bemidji water power has been investigated by some Grand Rapids people and while it is found to be prolific of possibilities Mr. Cobb says that he would still call our attention. to the fact they have a water power at Grand Rapids that is one of the finest in the country. A session of the district court is at present on at Grand Rapids. The Coddington murder trial was called yesterday afternoon and will be the order of business perhaps during all the rest of the week..

O O N THE STAGE Company of Indian Players Will be Got Together by Mr. Livingston. Edward Livingstone, of Omaha, Nebraska, was in the city last night on business. Mr. Living stone is an old theatrical man and one of the most successful in the business. To use his own expression he has "Tommed" and "heavied" to S. R. O. in every town between the Golden Gate of California to the Rock Bound Shores of New England. For the past several years Mr. Livingstone has noted the re markable access wild west shows have attained and he has a new idea. He proposes to get a band of Indians together to do the eastern vaudeville houses. Mr. Livingstone is sure their dances would make a hit in vaud eville. His business frequently brings him to this section and he announces that this winter he will make an effort to get a num ber of Chippewas to take the road early in the spring to play in vaudeville and on the summer resort stages during the sum mer.

Tony was mangled by a falling tree in the woods and his old "pal" Jimmie accompanied him to the hospital. Tony could not survive the operation, the doctors told him. "Billie," he said to his sorrow ful friend, "I'm a gonerthis trip. The stuff is off. I've got to hike to the head camp mighty soonly. Now, I don't want to be laid out like a common stiff in the pauper dump ground. Take this time check for $30 and bury me decent. I've got good folks back East and I want to be planted right." Sadly Billie took the check, sadly he cashed it and more sadly still he spent the cash for red liquor. While his friend was dying, under a sidewalk a few blocks away Billie lay dead drunk. It is folly to dwell on his re pentance in the morning. But repentant he was and determined to recover his lost cause. "Madam," he said to the well dressed lady who answered his rap at the door, "do you remem ber Jimmie Burch?" "Why, certainly. He is a nephew of mine." "No, he aint. He's dead, and 'fore he flunked he asked me to tell you, so you could fix up the graveyard blow-out." Her grief was softened' by doubt as she gazed upon the face of the dead. It bore little re semblance to that of Jimmie's face as it looked in the faded album of her memory. But Billie's eloquence pre vailed. Satined that the corpse once happy James, she was turning away when the cold jaw relaxed and the mouth opened. "It aint him. It is not James. Jimmie had false teeth!" She was gone and with her went hope to poor Billie. He looked at the gaping face of his dead partnerthe wreck of many stormsand cried out re proachfully: "It is all your fault. I tried to fix you out right, Tony, and I would have done it if you would have kept your blamed mouth shut!" From an Ohio Minster. Rev. G. W Hagants, of Clyde Ohio says: I have used Dr. Warner's White Wine of Tar Syrup for sore throat, weak lungs, cough, cold, and any diseases of the kind it surpasses all other remedies.
