Misses Anna Scott and Annie-Bayle returned last night from a pleasure trip on the America to Port Arthur and Isle Royale. Rev. E. C. Clement and wife, Duluth, D. Ogilvie, Duluth, H. W. Burroughs, St. Paul, were among Wednesday's arri vals on the America. Misses Grace and Maud Leng, who have been the guests of their uncle. T. 1, Carter, this week, leave tomorrow night on a trip to Port Arthur and Isle Royale. The adjourned term of district court will not now be convened until August 28th. Sheriff Carhart has been instruct ed to notify the petit jurors to that effect. Mr. and Mrs. Win. H. Nelson, who moved to Dnluth early this spring, have returned to Grand Marais to reside. Mr. Nelson will take a position iu the cigar factory again. State Auditor Iverson went to Isle Royale on the America Sunday night. He circled around on the dock and made his bow to the boys during the stop of the boat here. The Johnson-Aarhouse Graphaplione Combination took their new instrument out on the lake yesterdaj' afternoon and for an hour or more gave the villagers a yery pleasing musical entertainment. A transfer system has been installed at the mill, which is a lumber and labor saving device. A considerable breakage of lumber is saved by the new system, and the vvffrk of sorting is now done by three men, where six were formerly em ployed. The county board of equalization held an extended session of several days this week, during which the assessment work of the county was inspected and more or less "upsot." The board m^ets again on the 30th, to consider anyi complaints that taxpayers may present. The annual school meeting for Inde pendent District No. 1 will be held at the school house in Grand Marais at 7 o'clock this evening. The principal busines8-of the meeting will.be the elec tion of two directors for a term of three years to succeed Chris EEolte and Elling Olson, whose terms expire. Axel Berglund was given a plunge in to the bay the other day while showing his adeptness at walking across the boom. He swam to a log on whieh H. LeSage was riding. And LeSage made sure that there were no dry spots on Axel by the time he got ashore, for ha dipped him several times on the way. John L. Lundin and L. U. C. Titus returned Wednesday night from Du luth. The Forward-Lundm case was again postponed to enable the parties to procure further necessary evidence. This long drawn out trial will probably be concluded at the adjourned term of district court at this place next month. Henry B. Bastiam and family, of New Ulm, who are enjoying their regular an nual outing on the north shore, were in Grand Marais a few days this week. They visited this place' last three years ago and note great changes here since then. They left for Port Arthur last night and will visit Isle Royale before returning home. Archie Wright, who for many years has satisfactorily served as olerk on the Booth company's north Bhore boats, has severed his connection with that con cern to engage in other business. -.Ar chie's host of friends along the shore bury their regrets in the hppe-.that he has secured' a better position, one more* befitting his industry, and capabilities. Fred Bramer has fenoed' in the four lots upon which his saloon'stands, by which improvement is cut -off an old time short cut that has served the local public for a generation: Just another sign of the progress of civilization by which we are turned from the old by* ways to the less attractive improved thoroughfares. This improvement makes immediately .further tfr" streetimproveraentintfoM^^ Sam my Zimmerman's g»l Ian try gave a-full bath in the bay a'few days Ago. While -engaged in his' work at the mjll pond a bunch of Grand Marais beauties padsed by and Sammy, of course, gave, them thife salute proper. He was standing on a boom stick at the time arid stepped off into the water, ^hich is considerably deeper than Sam my is high. IJe didn't see whether the girls laughed, or cried at his predica ment and nobody was cruel enough to tell him. Sammy will probably moder ate bis bows on boomsticks henceforth. The matter of redisricting the county into new commissioner districts was not considered at the annual meeting ot the county board. As provided by the code, the representation on the coanty board must be enlarged to five members, all of whom will necessarily be elected this fall, and for which purpose the county must be redistricted. While official ac tion was not taken, the matter was talk ed ..over by the members of the board and it is understood that a special meet ing will be held to dispose of the matter. The people are much interested and their anxiety to see the thing done in creases as the time shortens. It is not an easy task, as may readily be seen, to divide this county into five new districts, bounded by township lines and as nearly equal in size according to population as practicable. The people fully appreciate this and the county board will find them undisposed to criti cise any reasonable compliance with the law. But eaFly action will be the best solution of many vexed questions grow ing out of the situation. ANENT THE SCHOOL QUESTION. Just a suggestion or two to those who are making a great ado, "on the quiet," orer the Herajd's remarks on the school question, in last week's issue: If the cap doesn't fit, don't wear it. No names,were mentioned. If you are so confident that the ^Her ald is wrong acd you are right, whisper it to the public. Put it in the paper the space is yours for the asking. The Herald does not seek a controver sy that would surely be unpleasant (tho not unprofitable to the public) but it believes that this motrentous question should ,be handled in the open light of day. The purpose of the Herald arti cle was neither accusation nor abuse but simply to warn those who would inter fere with or retard the establishment of an improved school system that they are inflicting an irreparable injury upon the public, which they must suffer with other citizens. The evident determi nation to make the Herald's utterances an "issue" may force us to answer fully some of the questions we asked last week. We are not ready to plead guilty of recklessness in the discussion of this question or to concede thatr the position taken by this paper is cot as firm as truth and fact can make it. DRS.

Iinilroad, anri the C^izens lJuilt It, Seventeen there, was not a bouse in Wichita Falls, aiid the grass grew as high lis the back of the pony on which the fust settler rodel. This year, within radius of-32 miles, one-third of which is uhculfeivated,, $0,805,500 worth of produce was raised, and in that radius is a population of 30,000* people. Henrietta is the only competing town. The assessed value of the property of that circuit is $17,000, 000. The actual value will probably double that amount., and yet only about 300,000 acres, one-third of the total number, sire in cultivation^ The milling capacity of Wichita Fulls is 800.000 barrels. Until recently, when one of the largest mills burned, it was 400,000 barrels., The elevator capacity is 1,000, 000 bushels. Wichita Falls is located in the Wich ita and Red river valleys, a magnificont stretch of land which extends about 50 .miles north and south and probably 20 miles eastf,and west. It is located on the main line of the Fort Worth aiy.1 Den ver City i,ail\vay, now of the famous Union Pacific system, and is the east ern terminus of,the Wichita Valley rail way, which extends westward 55 miles "to Seymour, in Baylor county. It is 114 miles northwest of Fort Worth and 146 miles from Dallas. about 5,000. Its population is About 18 months ago the people of Wichita Falls decided' tha't life \vould not be worth .living unless that branch of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad which terminated at Hen rietta was extended to their town. They went before the ofiieors of the road with their proposition. They submitted to these officers the amount of freight and passenger ^business that Wichita Falls would furnish. The officers of the road told the Wichi ta. Falls people, however, that if they could furnish any such business as they claimed the proper thing for'them to do was to complete it themselves, and that the "Katy" road would divide earn ings with the town. The people of Wichita Frills acted npon t'his proposition promptly. Three months ago the road was completed 22*4 /niles at a cost of $180,000. This is an indication of (the enterprise of the peo ple of the county seat of Wichita coun ty, and that is why the people of the county qan afford to do such things. GOOD SIDEWALKS DESIRABLE. EBHent.iul Points to Bo Considered Are Sinoothiiess ami Durability. Good sidewalks add much to that ap pearance of neatness which every well regulated town strives to attain, and a little care in their construction is only necessary to achieve this desirable aim. Sidewalks should be as carefully regu lated in their construction as street pavements. The idea of permitting abut ters to decide upon the pavements for the roadways in front of their premises •should not be entertained for an instant. But they appear to lie given entire free dom of choice in relation to sidewalks. If there is any regulation iu this respect it is a regulation that does not regulate very effectively. While it might be well to permit an abutter to lay the very best sidewalk that could be had if he so de sired, some approach to uniformity of standard should be insisted upon, with in the extent of a block at least, and the character of the work should never be allowed to fall below a certain mini mum. The elements essential to the con struction of a good sidewalk are suf ficiently known to make any falling be low the standard inexcusable. Evenness and comparative smoothness, combined with sufficient durability, are the great considerations. It is important that the people of a ommunity should be saved as much fa tigne in walking as possible. They have £0 much more strength left for their work, and their productive capacity is correspondingly enhanced. The .chief factor in this matter is the quality of the footway. A person can probably walk twice as far over an even sidewalk as over a rough one with the same ex penditure of muscular and nervous en ergy. Whoever has given thought to the matter has perceived that, while on a surface of varying level, a considerable degree of attention has to be given to the process of walking in order to ad just the action of the muscles to the spot where the feet are to fall, thus causing a continuously uneven gait, on an even surface this attention is not necessary. In the latter instance wait ing becomes automatic in character, with a corresponding economy in phys ical energy. The Ideal City. Dr. Edward Everett Hale, in a recent lecture, said that as things go in our present life he regarded what is called the small city as the ideal city of Amer ica. His range was as wide as from 30,000 people to 150,000 for th6 roll of population of such a city. He thought a man's chances for getting the most out of life were better in such a city than in London, in Paris, in Boston or in Chicago. Dr.. Hale, said that the ideal city should have easy land tenure, that every man may own his own house' and garden. Dr. Hale closed by saying that in the management and success of the ideal city permanency in residence, the nat nraf pride in the good name of the city and tho solidarity and mutual regard of the inhabitants are very large factors. tv- The Care of Latrna^/ Weeds are tfie bane of lawn cultur Jats: There is no method of eriklication except by the knife. Thistle and dock .roots- should be .complefejy removed. For .other weeds it is not ueccssary to -cut, deeper than just beiow the er„6wn. Ante, when once'established on a lawn, area great Buisluic^ There is no satis Feasi of 'KFarfes. Halmagen, in Roumania, possesses a public festival which, is probably unique in thfe world. It is a little towjn of about 1,200 inhabitants, and on the morning of its annual fair day the population from about eighty vil lages coine trooping in in swarms. To them go out all the young women, married or single! of Halmagen, each be^rmg a small flower garland and -vessel of wine, and all attended by their, godmothers—this last precau tion is taken from motives of defer ence for Mrs. Grundy. As the visit ers approach, the young women offer to each a taste of wine and—a kiss. He Had Cause. A Missouri man was arrested on thje charge of loud swearing. He proved to the judge that he h'acl used improper language because he had fallen from the roof of a barn and been nearly killed. The judge said this was a val id excuse and dismissed the case. Eighteenth Century Earrings. The eighteenth century saw the glorification of the earring, fashion able beauties outvying each other with the rarest and most beautiful jewels. There is no doubt that the. earring is one of the prettiest feminine adore ment and as such well deserves its present popularity. A MADE-TO-ORDER SUIT —when it is made right—is the only suit that is sure to suit. PEHRSON MAKES THEM RIGHT. Ask any of his Giand Marais customers. He is holding' down a homestead and has his shop at home, but he cau do as g-ood work there as if he was back in Parker's fashionable shop in Du luth. If you want .to see samples and set prices, leave word at the printing-office or drop a postal card to JOHN The Tailor. PEHRSON, Grand Marais, Minn Official Proceedings.
