OFFICIAL PAPER OF COUNTY AND VILLAGE. ONE DOLLAR A YEAR. GRAND MARAIS, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1907. .Tohnnie Davis" opinion on the question of good roads might be of some interest just it, the present writing. The Herald m.av not be as good as the best but it leads some that claim to be. Your subscription is solicited. One dollar a year. The interest due on that Standard Oil line probably amounts to enough by this time to purchase a few torpedo boats for our navy. We are in receipt of a marked copy of the Stillwater Gazette in in which Senator Clapp is given a boost for the Republican nomination for vice president. list as peuple were beginning to feel rather kindly towards Fair banks for the rescue of that waitress Senator Piatt comes out for him, and it is all over. If Bro. Paradis, of the Midway News, keeps repeating that question to Bro. Day until he gets the answer he wants he will very likely have to enlarge his paper—and then some. Gen Booth, of the Salvation Army, is coming to this country to be gin a campaign. This country, with its grafters, trusts and combines, is a tough proposition for a general 78 years old to tackle. 1 he Stillwater Gazette says: "No doubt there is on& thing we all know for sure—exactlv how everybodv else should act and do things. O There is no doubt about this it is unanimous wherever we go." And ihe one svho gives advice most freely is not necessarily one who does things. The tactics now being adopted in the range strike make it look as if somebody has been reading Ilarry Orchard's confession. Twelve sticks to which was a partly burned fuse, was found under a mining building at Nashwauk recently. The blame is laid to the Western Federation. And if that organization is to be judged by the character ot its recognized leader in this strike the public can easily be suspicious. Judge Lochren has ideas of his own as to law and justice and he doesn't weigh it out on the scales handed to him by the mob. Deaf to the howls caused by a recent--decision of his, in which state's rights as viewed by many was given a hard rap, he has now granted a tempo raay injunction to stay the operation of the law fixing commodity rates on railroads in this state. Judge Lochren is rather Sbvere in his opin ion of this law. "There is no question," he says, "but that such legis lation is vicious and a disgrace almost to the civilization of the age. It is a reproach on the intelligence and justice of any legislature which would promote acts of that kind. In times past Lochren was regarded by the people as a great jurist, and time alone can tell whether he is as right now as he was then-and whether he is not making -wise use of the judicial safety brakes. THE PARCELS POST. The rural mail carriers, in their recent convention, proposed a form of parcels post that would at least remove the opposition of the coun try merchants who fear the competition of the big mail order houses, even it it would not satisfy the general demand for a parcels post. The proposal of the rural carriers is that the government establish local parcels post delivery from each post office serving as a center for rural delivery routes. If this involved only the transportation of parcels from the postoffice town along* the rural routes, it would be a great gain for the home merchants, who could supply their country patrons with goods hi this way, and it would give Ihem an advantage over the city mail order houses, who would still have to pay express rates. However, it is doubtful if it could be thus arranged. It would not be accepted as a substitute for a general parcels post plan, which would permit the ship ment of goods from one part of the country to another, just as, they are shipped in the European countries enjoying the parcels post privilege. The paicels post is so clearly a benefit to the people at large that though it may be delayed by the opposition of the express companies and the country merchants, it cannot be defeated by them. It will come some time, because there is no reason why the government should let expiess companies take a part of the parcel-carrying businesss, any more than there is why it should let private companies take over the work and profit of carrying letters. The parcels post, when it is adopted, can hardly be upon the same basis as the letter and newspaper post, however. It would hardly be feasible, for instance, to carry a 5-pound parcel from New York to Se attle at the same price for which it is carried from Duluth to Two Har bors. Some difference in rates, based on distance,' would necessarily have to be made otherwise, in order to cover the cost of carrying par cels for long distances, the flat price would have to be so high that it would not pay to send them short distances by mail. However, that is a detail that could be worked out easily enough. The fact that dis tance makes no difference in postal rates on letters, papers and parcels such as are now carried by mail need not prevent the adoption of a schedule in which distance shall make a difference. The opposition of the express companies to the parcels post is easily understood, and so is that which comes from the country merchant when one realizes what serious competition these merchants receive from the mail order houses. However, a parcels post with charges based on distance would give the local merchant an advantage over the distant mail order house and should1serve in a considerable measure to lessen opposition from this source.A-Duluth Herald COMPLETED TRIUMPH OF STEAM Stephenson Invented Horn, Forerun ner of Locomotive Whistle. As the train approached a crossing the engineer lifted a tin liorn from the seat besid^ him and blew a' long, resonant blast that was scarcely audi ble above the rattle of the cars. A farmer on^his way to market failed to hear the warning blast. The next in stant he, with his cart, 100 pounds of butter and a thousand fresh eggs, were mixed up in a monster omelette by the side of the track". The farmer was unhurt but very angry. He brought suit and recovered full damages from^the railroad. This happened in England in 1833. The president of the road sent for George Stephenson, and said angrily: "Our engineers can't blow their horns loud enough to clear the tracks ahead. You have made your steam do so much—why don't you make it blow a good loud horn for us?" Stephenson pondered. An idea came to him. He visited a musical instru ment maker and had constructed a horn that gave a horrible screech when blown by-steam. From this horn the locomotive whistle of to-day de scends. Strenuous Life Dangerous. A warning is uttered by the Prac titioner against the dangers of the strenuous life. 'It is good to be stren uous, it'is averred, but it is also good, as the poet tells us, to play the foo^ or, at any rate, to be idle at the right time and in the right way. This is just what the strenuous man forgets and the consequence is too often premature breakdown a common event in the storm and stress of mod ern life. The strenuous life is ^help ing to overcrowd our asylums. We need to learn the incalculable value of rest. This, consists, not in a. change of excitenient or in hard work dis guised as a game, but in genuine re* pose. A man who knows how to rest from labor will live longer and ac complish more than one who allows the fever of strenuous living to fret his mind and body to premature de cay. Tried It. "What!" cried the genial Jenkins, dapping friend Jobson. on the back, "you are in love with Maud Daw #on, and too bashful to propose to her? Think shame of yourself, man! Just you follow my plan. I was out walk ing one night with the lady who is now «iy wife, when we came to a jeweler's s&sp, and I pointed to the engagement rings in the window and said, 'Wouldn't you like one of these?' and she said, 'Yes,' and so it was all set tied." "Capital idea!" cried the bashful •febson. "I'll try it this very night." Twenty-four hours later the, two friends met once more. "Well, Jobson," cried Jenkins, "did the plan work?" "Work!" groaned Jobson. "I should think it did! Just listen. I took Maud along Main street, and stopped at Goldstein the jeweler's, and I point ed to the engagement rings ill the win dow and asked her if she would like one, and she smiled and blushed and put her hand on my arm, and said, 'Oh, yes, dear George, I would like that one.' and 'that one' cost me $75. Could Tell It Another Way. Many years ago an old and well-to do farmer in Western New York had something of a reputation as a litigant. He had a peculiar twist about his mouth when he talked, due to some muscular affection, which gave a strik ing effect to his utterances. His old neighbors tell of a trip that he made to see his lawyers oh a cer tain occasion when he had Sixade up his mind to have a lawsuit. He sat down with his lawyer and laid out his case before him at length. The lawyer said: "Well, on that statement you haven't any case." The old man hitched his trousers nervously, twitched his face, and hastily replied: "Well, I can tell it another way." The Parson's Explanation. A'Scots minister had forgotten to bring his manuscript to the church and on going into the pulpit gave his congregation this explanation: "I am very sorry, my friends, to have to tell you that I have mislaid my manuscript. I must, therefore, this morning just say to you what thf Lord has put into my mouth, but 'i trust I shall come out this afternoon better provided."—The Tatler. Descent of Thorium. Seldom in the history of chemical Industry has any chemical product un dergone such marked variation of price within a few years as thorium, the principal constituent of incandes cent mantles, says Scientific American. Early in 1894 thorium nitrate was sold by the German combination at 2,000 marks per kilogramme, and by Janu ary of the'next year it had fallen to 900 marks in July of the same year It stood at 500 marks. In 1896 it "fell in May to 150 marks, and in October to 90 marks, touching the low price of 30 marks in 1899. After that the price was pushed up to 53 marks, less 7 per cent discount, in May, 1904, a figure which the "Convention" succeeded in maintaining till January of this year, when it dropped to 27 marks, less 3 per cent discount. The Chicago Gait. Women in Chicago don't allow any obstacles to get in their way when trying to catch a train. One thought the trolley was too slow the other day, and, after pushing the motor man aside, ran. the car for nearly a mile at breakneck speed. How would that work inNew York? Bite Not Necessary to Communicate the Disease, a -Scientist Shows. The popular notion that rabies only follows the bite of a mad animal or, by exception, (he licking of a superfi cial Wound is incorrect. P. Remlln ger, a director of the Imperial Bac teriological institute of Constantino ple, has brought forward ^hree obser vations, which show the possibility of a third method of contamination. A certain number of animals, parti cularly the dog and the cat, have the habit of licking their paws. But Roux and Nocard have shown that the sa liva becomes virulent in a few days after the first appearance of the symptoms of rabies. When the rabid animal is com fined in one place saliva drips upon the ground and soil* his pstws, which are also contaminated by licking with his tongue. Wounds, therefore, made by scratch ing with the claws of a rabid animal are necessarily infected wouiids. In scratching the human skin the animal lays bare a number of nerve filaments, upon which the virus is deposited. Persons who are scratched by animals thought to be mad should, therefore, submit themselves to appropriate treatment without loss of time. WORTH MORE THAN GOLD. Counterfeit Sovereign Worth More Than the Original. A well known photographer who re cently paid into his bank a sovereign which appeared to be much wori was astonished a short time afterward to find that its value ha& been credited to him at 21 shillings. It appears that on reaching the mint the coin was dis covered to be a clever counterfeit made of platinum heavily gilt. At the time at which it is supposed to have been made it was worth about seven and sixpence, but at the present price of platinum a sovereign's weight of that ponderous metal is worth much more than a sovereign's weight of gold. in good Spirits. A minister met some time ago a prominent member of his congregation -~a saloonkeeper—who, while engaged In the cellar a day or two previously, had accidentally become immersed in a barrel of liquoin wherefrom, owing to his extreme corpulence, he was rescued "with difficulty, and com menced to condole with him on his unfortunate experience. "You must have felt very uncom fortable indeed in such a painful situ ation," observed the cleric. "Oh, no," was the cheery reply, "I was in the best of spirits." Landslip on Siberian Railway. As the result of continued rain storms, the Trans-Baikal railway has been washed away and damaged at several points, while the railway run ning around the southern end of Lake Baikal has suffered very much from great landslips between the stations of Baikal and Slyndyanka. Two trains have been overwhelmed by these landslips two soldiers were killed, several of them were injured, and many of the cars were wrecked. "Little Check" for $20,COO. Baron Henri de Rothschild, the millionaire doctor of medicine, at tended at the Academy of Medicine in Paris where Pr. 'Poirier, at the close of a masterly lecture, expressed regret that France had no cancer in stitute. Baron Henri sent up a note to the lecturer expressing his pleas ure at the lecture and inclosing a "little check toward the preliminary expenses of the institute," which rep resented $20,000. Buying or Selling. William B. Ridgely, the controller of the currency, said of a certain specu lator the other day: "The man ig as ingenius as a horse dealer's son they used to tell about in my native Springfield. "This boy was once unexpectedly called upon by his father to mount a horse and exhibit its paces. "As he settled himself in the saddle, the boy, in order 'to regulate the horse's gait accordingly, leaned down and whispered to his father: "'Are you buying or selling?'" 1— Caught Salmon With Her Hands. One of the most notable feats to be accompanied by any of the young fiady bathers of Long Beach s£ far this season was that of Miss May Sim mons of this place, says the Ilwaco Journal, who captured a real live chinook salmon in the surf. The young lady was out bathing in the ocean when she noticed the salm on*swimming cjose to her. How she succeeded in getting a hand hold on the fish is the wonder, but she did, 'and after a lively struggle, in which 'she was nearly submerged in water at times by the flopping of the fish, suo* ceefling In getting it ashore. Elder HolmeS' Advance Dates. It was the custom forty years ago to hold services every second Sunday tn the Baptist church at Newport, N. H. Elder Holmes was the minister, and it is reported that one of hig Sun day morning notices was delivered from the pulpit as follows: "Two weeks from to-day services for divine worship will fee held in this edifice, the Lord willing and two weeks later* whether or no." Peanut Like the Potato. The peanut is a root plant, that is, the buds, after blossoming, bend down, enter the earth and become (the nuts'. The nuts, therefore, are dug out of the earth like potatoes. But Recipient Hard'ly Meant It as a Compliment. In a banking office in New Orleans Is an aged bookkeeper who began his connection with the business the day it was established. As the years went by, the proprie tor, who was extremely "close" amassed an enormous fortune. The bookkeeper piled up ..but a small amount of savings. At last the twenty-fifth anniversary of the firm 'and of the bookkeeper's service came along. He remembered It, but thought no one else would. To his 'surprise, the proprietor spoke of it' at once. "Williams," he said, "do you know what day this is?" "Our twenty-fifth anniversary, sir." "It is, indeed, Williams. And now I have thought fit to commemorate the event, and I have put in this envelope for you a small gift to ex press my appreciation of your faithful service." The bookkeeper, his hopes raised high, took the envelope from his em ployer and opened it. The "token" was a photograph of the employer. "It's just like you!" murmured the bookkeeper. "It's just like you!" Counting the Hundred. An old Jew peddler was passing through a West of England hamlet, of fering his wares for sale, when a little girl beckoned to him. "Yell, my leetle tear?" said the old man. "Please, sir, mother wants to know how you sell your needles?" "Hundred a'\penny, my leetle tear.'' "Then "I'll have a penn'orth. Only mother says you must count 'em out one by one." "Count 'em? Certainly. Hold out your hand. Now den. Yon, two, tree —an' vot might be your age, my leetle tear?" "Please, sir, I'm ten, sir."

Ninety-seven, ninety eight, ninety-nine—von hundred needles for von penny. Money? Tank you. Mind you don't lose any needles. Good after noon, my leetle tear!" Damascus Being Modernized Damascus, whose pedigree is longest of living cities, is losing its character. An enterprising Belgian company is cutting through it with an electric tramway and is sprinkling giectric lights in its ancient streets. What is more, the »motive power for these installations is derived from the harnessing of the river falls twenty two miles off, so that no feature of the modern invasion is spared the place whence the Jew of Tarsus es caped in a basket over the wall. The British acting consul reports that three and a half miles of the tram line are already being laid.

An old-time English barrister was ^John Williams, a sarcastic wit and a bachelor with an" intense prejudice against marriage. His clerk one day asked him for f. holiday to get married and some months afterward, on entering ^bis chaJhbers, Williams found his dead body suspended from the door. He engaged another clerk, aDd asked him if he was married. "No," the clerk replied but, thinki'ig Will iams would regard marriage as a guarantee of steadiness, he added, "but 1 going to be." "Very well," replied Williams "but understand this—when you hang yourself, don't do it here!" Documentary Proof of Idiocy. "Look here, old chap, I'll give you a valuable tip," said the experienced married man to the prospective bride groom. "Don't let your wife keep a diary on tLa honeymon.
