  • Nearly 1,000 people turned out yesterday afternoon at the North St. Louis County Fairgrounds in Hibbing for a free Fourth of July picnic. The outing was meant to be a good old-fashioned family picnic, but many unemployed and needy Range residents were also fed.
  • The Hjemkomst made good progress yesterday, sailing at 8 knots with southwesterly winds of 25 knots. The Viking ship is about 1,450 miles from Norway, and if the winds hold the ship could reach its destination in ten or eleven days.

  • City of Duluth officials announced yesterday that the number of tourists coming to Duluth this season is unprecedented in the city's history. Hotel managers, predicting the volume of the season's business, say that previous records will be shattered by this season.
  • Mark Paine, aged 74, for many years prominent in the area's lumber trade, died yesterday at St. Francis Hospital in Superior. Paine came to Superior in 1888 and entered the lumber business with his brother Franklin at Carlton, Minnesota.
