Ration and organization of the every

It Is confessed that occasion ex

'just tho reason why the "practical
man" and every man should lend his
influence and support to movements

young man something to do.
Making thu Hoy Scouts useful In
the sanitation campaign Is where the

needs work can make a pructlcal ap
plication of his knowledge and "show
what's In him."

or turned by the plow.
The scheme Is for the State to lay
out ten tracts, of forty acres each and
prepare ten acres In each tract for
crops. This will glvo tho settler a
chance to start on even terms, which
not the case when he has to clear
the land and go through thu dilflcult
task of breaking up virgin soil.
Minnesota will, of course, charge
the purchaser for the work done bo-

r TO AVOID SPLIT
(Continued from Pago 1)
this morning thnt It will bo a com
pliance with what tho shippers' com
mittee asks so far as Is possible with
out humiliating thu association.
"If wo yield to their demands ns
they have been made, tho identity of
the association would be lost," ne
said. "Hut we arc willing to meet
them over half-way and In fnct huvo
already done so, because we do not
wish to sco the tax, stopped."
rho practical result of this will
probably be that tho association will
express Itself forumlly In support of
tho tax and In sympathy with Its ob
ject, but will not bind Itself abso
lutely to tho payment of the tax fur
two years more. Representation on
tho committee will stljl be requested.
Members of the Merchants' Asso
ciation are loath for the present
slight split to widen, and In order to
get It closed they are trying to reach
an agreement that will not compro
mise the standing of the association
and will still meet what thu ship
