- - 1911 - - BOYS FIND DEAD STRANGER
Source: The Pioneer (Bemidji, MN) May 22, 1911; transcribed by Mary Kay Krogman < br>Shevlin, Minn., May 22.-(Daily Pioneer Special Service.) - Boys wandering about the wood piles on the south side of the railroad tracks yesterday found the dead body of a well dressed young man whose identity is unknown. Mr. P. C. Bjorneby, coroner of Clearwater county, came to Shevlin this morning and decided an inquest was unnecessary, as it was apparent that the young man had committed suicide by cutting his throat with a razor, which was found lying nearby. The dead man came to Shevlin a few days ago and begged food from house to house, although he did not have the appearance of a professional tramp. He applied to park's livery stable for work and it is here that he stole the razor with which he killed himself. Nothing was found on the body indicating the identity of the dead man.


- - 1922 - - MOOSE IS GROWING
Source: Duluth News-Tribune (25 Feb. 1912) transcribed by Christine Walters
Solway, Minn., Feb. 24 - George Duffy, Joe Lewis and Ole Olson, formerly of Austin, Minn., have brought farmers in the town of Moose, Clearwater county, a short distance from Solway. H.E. Fredenberg, of Moose, states that the town is settling up rapidly. He says that with the approach of spring, many farmers from the southern part of Minnesota and from Iowa are moving to this vicinity in order to get settled before the spring planting season arrives. The majority of those moving in appear to be coming from counties which in the past years have suffered from drouth. The farmers in this section of the state contend that this is in the heart of what is destined to be the best dairy and beef district in Minnesota and they are advising their friends in other localities to make their homes here while land may be purchased at a reasonable price.


- - 1922 - - LEONARD BALL TEAM NOSES OUT PINEWOOD
Source: Bemidji Daily Pioneer (Bemidji, MN) June 29, 1922; transcribed by Mary Kay Krogman

(Special To Pioneer)
Leonard, Minn., June 29-In one of the fastest games of baseball ever played in Clearwater county, the Leonard team took the fast Pinewood team into camp by a 4 to 3 score. Pinewood has the fastest all home team in Northern Minnesota but manager Scott by hiring an outside pitcher assembled a bunch that managed to "nose them out in the ninth."

The score stood 1 to 1 until the sixth inning when a batting rally staged by Erickson, Malmo, Burman, Johnson and Movald, coupled by a wild peg to first let in two runs.

Pinewood came back again in the next frame and again tied the score and the crowd was again on its tows. Leonard failed to score in its half of the seventh although Scott, the Leonard kid fielder, reached first on a hit and promptly stole second after Larson had failed to connect but Ericson and Malmo were retired in order.

In Pinewood's half of the eighth the first three men up fanned and Leonard once more breathed easy. Leonard came to bad in the eighth with their five best batters up in succession. Rovald, who had been hitting strong, was out at first by a narrow margin. Burman reached first on a clean single. Johnson struck out but Movald came through with a single, Burman going to third.

With Harrison at bat, the Pinewood pitcher threw to catch Movald, who had stolen second the ball going to center Burman scoring the final and winning run.

Both teams played clean, snappy ball and the game was free from roughing and Pinewood took defeat gallantly and proved to their backers and others that they are good losers. G. F. Scott and B. Martino umpired and with the exception of one decision each were never questioned.
