Why don’t some of our young and pro
gressive young men look around a little
more carefully for opportunities to become
established in a paying business? Someday,
we hope, there will be a prosperous shoe and
harness maker right here at home. And may
be it will be possible to step into an up-to
date barber shop here in Red Lake when we
need trimming instead of traveling 30 or 10
miles for that privilege as at present. Who
will be the first to establish a reliable and
open-the-year-round blacksmith shop here?
We have quite a number of good blacksmiths
in our midst, but where is the shop with the
reputation of being always open and ready
for business, able to handle any job in that
line that may be brought into the shop, and
with a big sign up on the front of the
building and a resounding anvil to attract
the attention of all passersby? How many
are going to wait for some outsider to come
in and establish a nice paying little moving
picture show, or garage, or creamery, or
butcher shop, or bank, and what not? Who
will be the corn, hay, wheat or potato king
of the reservation? What are New Years
for, anyway, if not to serve as milestones by
which to mark our progress? What will the
year 1913 be memorable for in this com
munity when it has passed on behind?
Peter Douglas, aged 21, and Josephine
Oakgrove, aged 3, died on December 21 and
Wm. Kay-bay-aus-ung, aged 23, died on De
cember 25th, 1912.
