WifA the Long Bow
A gentleman "with a bundle" appeared before the Fargo
court the other morning giving the name of John Murphy.
"Where do you come from asked the court.
"Yessie," was the reply.
"You mean Jessie?"
"Ay tank so," was the reply.
"Well, you certainly have nerve to adopt the name of
Murphy," commented the court! "The name and your
accent do not harmonize."
The prisoner smiled knowingly and indicated that he did
not care to have his identity revealed thru the press, so,
after payment of a $5 fine, he was permitted to depart.

Is coming into the city of Harrold, west of that place and
that the surveyors are busy relocating abandoned lots and
sites. Holabird, a town six miles east, is moving over to
Harrold, bag, baggage, houses, barns and all. While there
are no skyscrapers in Holabird to move, the four or five
buildings that make up the town will help some when they
get spiked to the prairie "at Harrold.
Harrold once had two newspapers and was a town of
several hundred people. Here it was that Bell conceived the
idea of killing his friend Small. The latter had sued Bell
and the suit was to come of at Blunt. Small started on
horseback and was overtaken by Bell and an accomplice in
a buggy who killed and buried him by the hillside. Bell
appeared before the justice quite huffy because Small did
not eome. He accused the absent man of running away.
Later he went before the grand jury at Pierre and tried to
have the murdered man indicted so that he would stay
The day that he went before the jury the Harrold Daily
Recorder came out with a theory of Small's murder that
fitted Bell exactly. He immediately called on the editor,
Tom Nolan, and wanted to fight him for slander, but no
blows were struck.
The next day Small's body was found, wolves having dug
into the grave and attracted searchers. Bell was arrested and
a few weeks later while in the Pierre jail he was taken out
at night by Harrold and east Hughes county men and hung
to a telegraph* pole, after the most terrible resistance ever
made by a man taken from jail to be lynched.
So Harrold has its chronicles, for ancient history in that
locality can not be much more than fifteen or twenty-five
years old without becoming prehistoric and Indiany.

A VIVID PICTURE.
EROME K. JEROME, the English humorist, was talking
in a New York club about good writing.
"What I like," said Mr. Jerome, "what I try for, is a
picturesque and vivid quality. I want my words to set real
pictures before my readers' eyes. This gift W. W. Jacobs

A child had it, too," he went on, a child passenger of

"He, with a frown, replied:

A southwestern paper has started a illustrated "Health
and Beauty Hints for Women" column that is quite near the
limit. A lady of some embonpoint is shown grasping the seat
of a chair with her hands, while she elevates herself above
the chair and stands on her hands. She then lowers and
raises herself by her arm muscles. This is said to take off
flesh quite rapidly.
Another method of getting rid of superfluous flesh is for
the heavy lady to grasp the side of the doorframe firmly
with her hands and lifting her feet from the floor to hold
herself in a horizontal position by the arm muscles. This is
a wonderful reducer and much better than anti-fleshine,
punkanine and other fat reducers. Try these simple reme

ADVANTAGE OF TWO TEAMS.
IR CHARLES KIRKPATRICK of the touring English
"socker" football team was talking about cricket,
"In a northern garrison town last year," he said, a
match was arranged between the officers of the garrison and
the county lawyers.
"The officer^ prepared a superb luncheon for their vis-
itors, and all sat down to the repast before the game.
"The lawyers did full justice to the good things. Like
giants they attacked the champagne and black cigars. And
the officers were more than hospitable. Bottle after bottle
was brought in, and the costly black cigars from Havana
lay in profusion everywhere.
"Finally the lawyers would have nothing more. Their
faces, tho, were already flushed, and as they emerged into
the sunshine of the cricket field their glazed eyes blinked.
"The soldiers, who had partaken very sparingly them
selves, winked at one another. Victory seemed assured.
"But what was this? Out of a marquee a crew of
athletic giants came running, and began to practice batting
and bowling in admirable fashion.
'Who are those chaps? W don't know them/ said
an officer, frowning.

A GOOD PARROT STORY.

said Char}es E. Hughes of the insurance investigat

"In Glens Falls, where I was born, there was a family
that had an intelligent parrot with a large vocabulary.
"This parrot usually was kept in the family sitting-room
but a spell of severe cold set in, and so the bird: was kept
in the warm kitchen.
"It learned, down there, a"number of new speeches, with
which it amused the family greatly on its return upstairs.

Coal Men Will Refuse Longer to
Abide by Strike Com
Shamokin', Pa !Nbv. 11.A complete
canvass of the Lackawanna, Schuylkill
and Lehigh coal districts shows that the
miners, thru their delegates to the
United Mine Workers' convention to be
held here beginning Dec. 14, will refuse
to be bound after April 1 next by a

the operators and request a conference.
This- cdftmittee will explain to the oper

the conference is asked so that a mutual
agreement may be reached as to the
terms of employment at all collieries
The convention will take a stand for
an eight-hour workday, uniform pay
for classes of employees not rated as
miners, and specific terms of employ

a goint discussion, and will not be ob
truded in advance of the request for a

to one or more of its representatives.
Failing to get the consent of the op

allow for further negotiations and for

in all three districts.

Secretary Boot when he was at the
head of the war department, may bo

Discussion of the matter has not taken
any concrete form, but it is one of the
suggestions made to relieve the secre

now resting on him in administering
not only the affairs of the army, but
the Panama canal, the Philippines and
other island interests. It is argued
that Secretary Boot's past familiarity
with the Philippines will enable him to
take up the work where it has been
carried by Secretary Taft.
