Work and Play Combined So

VALLKY CITY, X. I).. July 7—The
lirst week of the Kami Hoys' iCneanip
meiit at the A'allcy City Chautauqua
closes today. Kvery one of the 11S! boys
in attendance is In the best of health
and spirits and hopes that Wednesday,
the official day of closing will be de
layed as long as possible.
Work and play have been combined
in such a measure that the boys have
found every minuto of the time inter
esting. In tabaloid form they have re
ceived the equivalent of a term in the
Agricultural' High School. They have
also had a real practical demonstration
of farm methods and of stockraising and
judging and most of the things •which
have been taught can be. put into prac
tical use When the boys return to their
O. I). Center, in charge of the camp
for the North Dakota Vet tor J'ai'Jiung
association, told the boys that in the fu
ture only he best and brightest lads are
wanted for farmers. "The second rate
boys will serve for the future lawyers,
doctors and preachers," said Mr. Center.
"Hut lily the very highest class boys
will make the kind of farmers who can
succeed in the future.
"Farming is the most intricate of all
business," said Mr. Center. "It de
mands the widest business acum'eii, the
best knowledge of a wide variety of sub
jects and the highest grade of intelli
gence. It is only the hoy who when lie
becomes a man has all these things that
will succeed in running a profitable
l'arm and these are the kind of boys
who we want on the farms."
In spite of the soaking rain which fell
on the Fourth, the camp spirits were
not dampened. The tents shed the water
well and aside from a little dampness
in the bedding which was soon dispelled
hy a gigantic bonfire, there was no dis
comfort. The bonfire dried out the bed
ding and warmed the spirits of the boys
and the linal celebration of the Fourth
was a huge "feed" of pop corn and

ing rushed to the railroad from all
parts of the county. The enormous
grain crop of last year could not all

and the ferries can scarcely accom
modate the traffic.

of $1.0,000 damages for Mrs. Fred Rcid
ol Minneapolis who was nearly shock
