WILL BUILD O MIN01
GREAT NORTHERN SURVEYORS
WORKING O N PROPOSED LINE
FROM SIOUX OITY.
Eoccial to The Journal.
Aberdeen, 8. D., Jan. 16.A right
of-way representative of. the Great
Northern is quoted as saying that the
road has in contemplation the imme
diate building of the line from Sioux
City to Minot, N D., which was dis
cussed a year or two ago.
According to this information, the
Great Northern will build thru the cen
tral part of the state, paralleling the
Missouri river, and its main line from
Minot to Sioux City will touch none of
the present terminals of the road in
South Dakota except possibly Yankton,
but the lines at Aberdeen, Huron and
Yankton will be extended to the new
main line to act as feeders. Great
Northern surveyors have been working
in the vicinity of Eureka, and it is re
ported the Forbes extension from El
lendale will be built on the Eureka,
and that Eureka will be on the new
line to Minot.
So many stories have been printed
regarding the intentions of the Great
Northern in South Dakota that most
of them have been promptly labeled
"pipe dreams" by persons who have
heard of the stories of the past, but
the fact that the road has made heavy
investments in propertv for station
sites at Huron and Aberdeen, and has
actually built from Ellendale to Forbes,
on the South Dakota line, taken in con
nection with the operations of survey
ors who do not deny that they are in
How I Often Happens from Coffee.
"I-had no idea," writes a Duluth
man "that it was the coffee I had been
drinking all my life that was responsi
ble for the headaches which were grow
i ng upon me, for the dyspepsia that no
medicines would relieve, and for the
acute nervousness which unfitted me not
only for work but also for the most or
dinary social functions.
"But at last the truth dawned upon
me. I forthwith bade the harmful bev
erage a prompt farewell, ordered in
some Postum and began to use it. The
good effects of the new food drink were
apparent within a very few days.
headaches grew less frequent, and de
creased in violence, my stomach grew
strong and able to digest my food with
out distress of any kind, my nervousness
has gone and I am able to enjoy life
with my neighbors and sleep soundly
o'nights. physical strength and
nerve power have increased so much
that I can do double the work I used
to do, and feel no undue fatigue after
"This improvement set in just as
soon as the old coffee poison had so
work ed out of my system as to allow
the food elements in the Postum to get
a hold to build me up again. I cheer
fully testify that it was Postum and
Postum alone that did all this, for when
I began to drink it I 'threw physic

on the hopes of Miles City as being in

route to Eosebud, which, it is said, will
bring the road twenty or thirty miles
south of here, striking the Yellowstone
thirty miles west. Their instructions
from M. D. Ehame, the division man

this place and owe party will proceed to

however, to the cold-water treatment,

Our Pre-Inventory Clearance Sale Is Open.
It sometimes pays to overlook the question of profits for the sake of advertising the business arid
to call special attention to certain features of the company which are not generally known. It is well
understood that the Metropolitan Music Company has the finest line of high-class pianos in the
Northwest and our friends know that we make a feature of the liberal treatment of our customers but
one object of these "special inducement" prices is to bring people in to see the unusual display of fine
pianos and to learn something of pur splendid facilities for taking care of all branches of the music busi-
nessrefinishing, repairing, tuning and all the other parts of a great music house.
This, coupled with the necessity of reducing our unusually large stock before inventory (Feb. i)
has made it necessary and desirable to offer prices which would not only bring people in to examine
our stock, but would enable us to turn some of these beautiful new pianos into sales.
