From the conditions enumerated, it

It has been said that the cost of
opening up a farm in North Dakota
is greater than it is in some states
farther east. I the early develop
ment of Dakota, when it was exclu
sively devoted to wheat-raising, for the
farmer to open up 160 acres and be
able to maintain a family until he
could get returns from the land neces
sitated quite an outlay of money. Un
der the old plan of opening up a wheat
farm, the settler had to be on the la nd
in the spring. would break his
land and back-set it, that is, plow it
the second time, but could raise no
crop until the next year,^ and would
not get letufns from that until in the
fall therefore it would be a year and
a half from the time that he estab
lished himself in Dakota before he
could get any returns fron\ his land.
So, to break up 160 acres, plow it
twice, maintain a family and stock for
a ye ar and a half, get the machinery
to seed and harvest 160 acres, required
Easy Get a, Start.
Many settlers with small means
made the mistake of undertaking too
much and got in debt, so that if the
crop proved not to be a very profita
ble one they became involved. But
now that they are raising flax, they
can break the land the first spring,
sow flax the same season, and get a
pretty fair crop, the'income of Which
enabl es the settler to go for seeding

practice of seeding flax "on newly
broken land has be en audite an attrac

iCCM ^ec ucm^ucig *n
Settlers in North Dakota^should go
into stock as early as possible. They
should go into mixed farming &nd not
depend entirely upon grain, and there
fore not bre ay up all of the farm,
even if they can do so, but retain a part
of it for pastura ge and stock pur
poses. I feel confident that on a plan
similar to this, a good, thirfty, enter
prising economical young- farmer can
under ordinary circumstances, suc
ceed in a short time in establishing
a comfortab le home in North Dakota.
The atmosphere is dry' and devoid
of any humidity during- the winter
months, and therefore, it never pene
trates and chills as does the damp at
mosphere of the Atlantic states. I is
a fact, borne out by the assertions
of all the residents "of the state, hail
ing, as they do, from all sections of
the United States, that the winters of
North Dakota are no more severe and
cause less suffering and inconvenien ce
than the winters of New England or
Avestern states. The thermometer oc
casionally registers a very low tem
perature, and probably this is the
cause of so jnuch inexcusable miscon
ception in regard to our climatebu
the reader is assured that a tempera
ture of 40 degrees below zero, an ex
ceptionally cold day of the winter, has
no more terrors for^ a North Dakotan
than has the "norther" of Texas, or
the daily snow storms of New England
for the residents of those latitudes.
The Autumn Linger s.
The autumn is a delightful season,
and is generally prolonged far into
Decemberse cold weather rarely
comes until after the holidays. The
sudden breaking up of the wint er is a
very noticeable feature of North Da
kota weather. There is none of that
intermittent warfare between Boreas
and the sun resulting in a prolonged
visitation of rain and win d, alternate
freezing and thawing, so common in
the eastern states, and dreaded al
ways as the most disagreeable season
of the year.
The winter breaks in March, usu
ally, and is followed immediately by
the warm, sunny days of summer.
Seedi ng and farm operations general ly
begin in the latter pa rt of March, or
early in April, and are seldom inter
rupted by the return of frost or snow.
There is no agricultural district in
which a farmer of small means has
been able to start more advantage
ously than in North Dakota. I is
possible that the opportunities for
establishing a home in North Da
kota on small means are not as favor
able at the present time as they were
earlier in its history owing to the ad
vance in the price of land. But it
must be remembered that all other
conditions are in favor of opening up
and establishing homes more cheaply
than could be done a decade ago
owing to the great reduction in the
Interest rates, in the price of farm
machinery, and nearly everythi ng thajt
he farmer has to purchase.

IT HAS BEEN VERY RAPID HERE
I AND ELSEWHERE.
They Facilita te the Transacti on of
Business and Sei^e as a Means of
Avoiding Responsibili ty They
Have Become an Enormous Factor
in the Business World.
The subject of realty corporations
has been taken up the New York
Mail and Expres s. The paper recen t
ly published a list of a thousand or
more such corporations in New York
city. I notes that on ly recently has
the substitution, of artificial for nat
ural perso ns be en found a good plan
In real estate matters as in other de
partments of financial activity.
Within a ye ar a score or more of
new real estate corporations have been
formed in Minneapolis. Some of the se
are on ly to enable estates to carry
property or to enable banks to sell
off real estate which they are not al
lowed by national bauking laws to
carry. Some of the deductions in the
caso of New York are applicable here.
The Mail and Express says, in part:
"The avoidance of personal respo n
sibility and the simplification of busi
ne ss forms are the two leading fac
tors In the formation of corporations,
not only in real estate mattery, but in
eve ry field in which they have been
generally adopted, From the mo
ment that two or thr ee or a dozen
men go into a real estate operation
they begin to feel the convenience of
corporate ownershipye it is a fact
that several of the most active and
successful firms and syndicates operat
ing in New York real estate have
never found It recessary become
incorporated. Yet a corporation can
take and give title, make leases, en
gage he lp and transa ct all its other
business more smoothly and more
promptly than can or four or
six joint tenants for under the law
joint tenants of real estate must all
act and act unanimously in all their
"As a method of avoiding responsi
bility, corporations are formed almost
daily, and it may be doubted whether
the state will not obliged in time
to limit this form of corporate activ
ity. The owner of real estate being
responsible for his torts, and this re
sponsibility being occasionally very
burdensom e, the state has practically
provided a means of avoiding it by
permitti ng an individual to transfer
his holding to a corporation with but
a nominal capital, of which he owns
all the stock. Often he fuither pro
i'ures, i manufactures, mortcrages
to the full value of the property and
in this situation tne building may fall
down and bury all its tenants and no
redress is possible. Similarly, the se
very lightly capitalized companies are
on the bonds of the mortgages, and
thus practically act as dummies. It
is not unlike ly that the state will
eventually find it necessary to pro
hibit corporations from owni ng real
estate valued at more than a certain
percentage of their paid-in capital.
A Enormous Factor.
"But when all this has been said,
the fact remains that realty corpora
tions have become, very suddenly, an
enormous factor in its business world.
The fact also remains that there are
very many of the se companies that do
a strictly legitima te business, whether
as operators or as investors or as
both, and that these companies are
gradually extending their importance
and increasing the respect with which
he public views them. I is not un
reasonable to hope that certain of
these companies, after a few more
years of actually earning moderate
dividends upon genuine capital, will
hecome a standard form of invest
ment for sums smaller than are now
usually serviceable in real estate
operations, and that thus there will
be created a new means of investing
such funds safely, and with the pro b
ability of returns a little higher and
much less fluctuating than can be
obtained from either- railway or in

lay a sea serpent fifteen feet lo ng and Peter Holvesso25 and wife to Julius Charney,
with a head twelve inches from ear "g^gjgf
to ear. It mouth was the same size,
and it grinned hideous ly at Blackman.
It seemed dead, but the next morning
it could, not be found
After this happening, Richard Bur
bage, of Pleasantville, went oyster
hunting in Lakes' bay. After a mighty
struggle he landed a bivalve, he says,
which measures two feet in length,
fourteen inches across the back,
twel ve inches in depth and the meat
in it weighed twenty-four pound s. Al
Pleasantville can beaT witness that no
oyster ever caught was its equal.
Then John Winder proved the rule
of three and made the cycle complete.
Winder is mate of the yacht Pitts
burg, and he pulled a lobster up on
a codfish line while fishing twenty
miles off shore. I weighed, Winder
says, forty-five pound s.
"It was either a man-eater or the
original lobster," says Winder.
