In 1884 the bureau made an analysis

samples from every state in the union
and from many foreign countries. The

and build up the human body than

Macaroni wheat is a comparatively

is estimated that about one million
bushels of this variety was raised in
the state last year. Its success has
been demonstrated by its cultivation
on a smaller scale in various sections

yield is more than the Scotch varieties,

Growth of Stock Industry.
Some conception of the growth of
the stockraising industry -in North Da
kota is obtained from the United States
census. It is shown by the returns
that in 1860 in the territory of Dakota,
now comprising the two states, there
were 286 dairy cows, 515 other neat
cattle, 84 horses, 193 sheep and 283
In 1870 the number of cows in the
territory had increased to 4,151, the
number' of other cattle to 8,316, the
number of horses to 2,514, the sheep
to 1,901, and the swine to 2,033, an in
crease of from 1,200 to 2,000 per cent
In 1880 there were in the territory
40,572 dairy cows. 100,243 other neat
cattle, 41,670 horses, 30,244 sheep, and
63,394 swine, an increase of from ten
to thirty times the number in 1870.

Increase in Shipping.
The increase of its railroad business

Lisbon, N. D., Oct. ai.I have been
interviewing the leading real estate men
in Eansom county as to their opinion in
regard to the fixture prices of land in
southeastern North Dakota, and es
pecially in Eansom county. I find them
to be unanimously of the opinion that
lands here must go higher within the
near future. The Adams & Frees com
pany, one of the largest dealers in farm
lands, and the owner of more land in
Eansom county than any one individual
firm, base their -opinion upon the price
of lands in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin,
Iowa and Minnesota at the present time.
They say that lands in Illinois and Wis
consin are selling at from $90 to $175
per acre and that purchasers are buying
these lands at $150 per acre as an in
vestment. They say that good lands
in Eansom county, if farmed in the
same way as lands there, will produce
as much per acre, and that after mak
ing liberal allowance for the differences
in freights, the prices of Eansom coun
ty lands must double before they are
anywhere near on the same basis with
the lands in the states mentioned.
Walter L. Williamson, another large
land owner and dealer, coincides fully
in the opinion expressed above, and goes
orther in stating that in his judgment
god lands in Eansom county will
double in value within three years, bar

INDIAN SUMMER IN RICHLAND COUNTY
TREATMENT OF GANGER
Results by Surgery and by Roentgen
Berlin Correspondence of the London Standard.
In today's sitting of the dematological con
gress in Berlin the subject of the treatment of
cancer was discussed with much animation. Pro
fessor von Petersen spoke on the subjecta of
non-surgical treatment of epithelioma and came
to the following conclusions: "(1) That epithe
lioma is curable without operation only in its ini
tial stage (2) that the best results are obtained
by "Finsenlicht," Inasmuch as this treatment
has no deleterious effects. Unfortunately, it is
very expensive (8) that Roentgen rays are often
productive of good results, but they must be
employed with great caution (4) radium rays
give positive results, but are accompanied by
dangers still greater than those arising from the
use of Roentgen rays (5) small surface epithe
lioma can be healed by continued bandaging with
a solution of from 5 to 15 per cent of soda.
Professor von Bergmann then spoke. He main
tained that every kind of epithelioma can be
permanently healed by means of surgery, where
as only a portion of the cases are healed by
treatment by light. He admitetd that when se
vere complications already existed the surgeon
could not cure the patient. But.in those cases
the Roentgen rays also failed. Hitherto, he said,
no cancer which has njoved impossible to operate
for had been healed by the Roentgen rays. It
was true that in perfectly hopeless cases the
pain of the patients could be alleviated by
Roentgen and radium rays, but this simply meant
the prolongation of the life of the patient and
not his cun

Find Their Pood at the Bottom of Aus
While on a cattle station in western Australia.
Henry Taunton had an opportunity of seeing a
remarkable instance of the way in which animals
can adapt themselves to the ir sorroundings.
"On the upje reaches of the river there was
a large pool just fordable at most times, but in
J&. dry season very low," he says. "Among the
horses making their run in the vicinity of this
pool, an old mare and a number of foals and
yearlings used to come down every day in the
long, dry summer, when the herbage was scant
and scorched into dryness. They waded into
the pool until the water nearly reached their
heads, and stood there for hours, diving to the
bottom for a mouthful of succulent weeds, which
they chewed at leisure with their dripping heads
raised above the water.
"The first time I witnessed this strange sight
was during a dry season, when I was riding with
the overseer in search of some strayed stock.
As we approached the pool my companion bade
me keep quiet if I desired to see something wen
worth looking at. As we rode quietly up to the
post I saw a group of horses standing' in the
water and disappearing from time to time an
they ducked their heads below the surface. Mr
wonder was soon a tan end, when I saw on*
of their heads suddenly oome out with a mouth
ful of dripping weeds. No sooner was this
mouthful disposed of than the head disappeared
in search of another.
"The overseer told me that during a long
drought somb five or six years previous, when
hardly a vestige of feed was left on the run,
ana ousn fires had laid bare the sand plains, the
old mare had discovered that there was plenty
of luscious feed at the bottom of the pools,
which could be procured by diving for it, and,
having once put her discovery into practice, sh*
continue to do out of' preference what she hart
been driven to do by necessity.
"The several generations of foals which she
had reared had all followed her example, altho
none of the full grown horses had joined th#
amphibious group. Here, then, seemed to be a
new variety of horse in evolution, which, if left
undisturbed, might breed and separate from tn
run, perhaps to survive thru droughts sever*
enough to exterminate all others."

to take a prize at the competition, showed me
