HIGHEST AWARDST, LOUIS 1904.
Of 7 per cent preferred stock of the Minneapolis Cereal Co., Minneapolis,
Minn., has been placed in my hands to sell to small investors. This pre-
ferred stock .is absolutely a safe and good investment. The idea of sell-
ing this stock to a large number of small investors, is for the purpose of
interesting a large number of persons in their business. This sale of pre-
ferred stock is made under the following conditions:
I amounts of from $50 to $500, i.e., from one-half to five shares to a
purchaser, and at par value of $100 per share.
Payments may be made in full or of $10 per month on each share sub-
scribed for in the latter case, 'coupon certificates will be issued, interest
on which will begin with the date of issue. These coupons will be ex
changeable at any time for the regular certificates wh en one or more shares
shall have been fully paid for.
The interest* of 7 per cent the company agrees to pay in payments of
3 per cent each six months.
Any purchaser of this particular block of stock who may wish to con-
vert his stock into cash again will be given the privilege of having it
redeemed at par and interest due at the time, any time after one year and
within sixty days after request is made of the company to do this for him
I all earnings of he company above the 7 per cent thus guaranteed
this stock will also participate.
The Minneapolis Cereal company is organized under the strict manufac-
turing laws of Minnesota governing corporations, and the articles of incor-
poration are so drawn as to make the preferred stock preferred not only in
interest, but principal as well. This company manufactures the largest and
best line of cereal foods of any one mill in the United States. Its trade*,
through extensive advertising, extends well over the Northwest, and is fast
finding its way to the Eastern and Southern markets.
They believe that the co-operation of a large number of interested
stockholders will be very beneficial to their business, as well as profitable
to the holders of the stock, so this stock is offered to small investors, and
not to speculators. I you are engaged' during the day, and wish an inter-
view during the evening, I will arrange a date any evening to suit your
convenience or address by letter,

HOW TO JUDGE A LIFE
One good way is by its record for honest and economical
management. The past at least is secure and it is the best guide
for the future.
The STATE MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY OF
WORCESTER, MASS., has a 61-year record upon these points,
which is surpassed by no other company in the world. Fo
illustration, during the year 1905 the entire Ho me Office ex-
pense of the STATE MUTUAL was only $74,000. This includes
the aalarioB o the entire official staff and tli large farce oiL
clerks employed at the Home Office to care for a business of
107 millions of insurance and assets of over 25 millions. This
is one of the results of the Massachusetts insurance law and
Massachusetts insurance supervision.
Every applicant for insurance should consider a STATE
MUTUAL proposition before placing his business. Full informa

Many 'Pigs'' in Interior.
I is altogether different in the in
terior towns. Here in Jamestown and
in Bismarck I heard no apologists for
prohibition. A prominent business man
of the capital 'city said
"There is about as much drinking
here as there would be with saloons,
and the town is full of blind pigs. Th
men who get liquor in these resorts fall
victims to the association and make
pigs of themselves, with the result ,that
there is a great deal of drunkenness.
The worst feature, tho, is the way our
younger generation is being debauched
The blind piggers and
while they are breaking the law, have
no hesitation and no scruples about
breaking it again, and sell to boys as
quickly as to men. I is no uncommon
sight to see boys of 14 to 18 drunk on
the streets. They are developing the
worst instincts, and I hate to think
wh at a class of young men we will have
here in a few years. W are sowing
It is much the same story in James
town. A business man here said:
"Every train from the east brings in
big shipments of beer in cases and
liquor in jugs. Some of it is bought
by men for their own use, but a good
deal is sold out by piggers, who do a
good business, and sell right along to
boys. Only the other evening I heard
four boys scraping together 75 cents
to get a pint of whisky, and an Hour
later I saw them go by hilarious."
The same man declared that in com
munities at a distance from the county
seat liquor /was sold openly in unli
censed saloons. The local authorities
will not do anything, and they are too
far away for the sheriff to bother, with.

Evil in Cities of the Interior.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Jamestown, N D. Dec. 2.Is pro
hibition a failure in North Dakota?
The question is often asked, and an
swered in a good many different ways.
The point of view differs according to
the location. Politicians keep at a re
spectful distance from the prohibition
question, knowing well that it is
"loaded" and likely to blow them to
atoms politically if they fool with it
For this reason it is not likely that
prohibition will be resubmitted for a
number of years to come, and the actual
majority of opinion of the people of
North Dakota will not be learned.
Outside the ranks of politicians there
are many who favor resubmission, and
they are not all enemies of prohibition.
A business man with wh om I talked in
Grand Porks took the position that pro
hibition was on the whole a success,
but on account of the vast change in
population since the constitution was
adopted the people should have another
chance to vote on it. said:
"The prohibitory clause in the con
stitution was not very popular wh en it
was first submitted, as far as the sane
judgment of our people was concerned.
The only reason it carried was because
our saloonmen had made fools of them
selves, and had angered* everybody.
They had been running things with a
high hand, and tried to dictate politics
to such an extent that the people were
disgustedj and adopted prohibition to
settle their hash. 'I was opposed to pro
hibition then, and I am not much of a
Puritan. I take a drink occasionally,
but I believe prohibition has worked
pretty well the state over. I has been
a better thing in the small towns.
Workihgmen in the country districts
and small places are more sober and
reliable than they used to be. I used
to be the complaint that during the
harvest season a rainy day or two would
result in breaking up a crew. They
would get started and take several days
for a spree. They can still get liquor,
of course, but it is not so easy, ana
there is less temptation to drunken
I think the prohibition question
ought to be resubmitted, in consider
ation'of the vast majority of our vot
ers who were not in the state at the
time of admission, and have had no
voice in the matter. I am not sure
what the outcome would be, but I be
lieve prohibition would be approved
Conditions in a city like Jamestown
or Bismarck are totally different from
those on the Minnesota border. A
Grand Forks, Fargo and Wahpeton the
situation is a good deal like that in
Minneapolis with the patrol limits.
They are separated from license towns
in Minnesota oniy by the narrow ed
river. The man "wanting a drink has
only to walk across the bridge, where a
long row of saloons with open doors
welcomes him and he finds every

maick, and some of the officials of the
state hospital for the insane. Charles
L. Mitchell, the postmaster, is also re
garded as a machine man, and they
have handled the county for McKenzie.
There is a revolt on. I is loeah in
character, and the success of the.rev o
lution would npt necessarily mean an
insurgent delegation to the state con
vention. I is**ap to however, as
things are shaping themselves. Knauf
made enemies when he disposessed Bert
Proctor, former deputy bank examiner,
and got his place for Pool, who is un
popular locally and not regarded as a
Jamestown man. .This, however, is only
an incident, and the general complaint
is that the leaders have been running
the county for personal ends. There is
also a good deal of feeling over the
way positions in the insane hospital
have been given out as political favors.
The hospital, it is freely claimed, is run
in the interests of the local machine
leaders, and not as a state institution
should be conducted.
