For some time the railway commis

have been lighting the queatioa of

Only State With Such Law
North Dakota is the only state
nhich has what, is known as the short

building of connections at the three
points named where the Soo and the
Great Northern cross, the possibility
of the enforcement of the short rate
law will be eliminated for the time
and it is expected that the railways
will make a test case of this law and
carry it to the supreme court. The
inclination of the railway nicopanies
to 'bifid the connections between the
systems in the northern part of the
state is a great encouragement to the

tiume time ago a law was enacted
bv this state which required the rail
ways to charge the short haul rate if

d.stance could be made shorter. The
mutter of installation of "Y's" at
three points where the short line of
the Soo crost.es the Great Northern

how under consideration by the com

railways to install "Y's" at Bisbee,
Omemee and Lansford, or charge the

The railways have askjd the com

which has been issued bo that it will
apply to the short haul rates and

Valley City, X. D., July S.—Camp
was broken here today by the 11
young farmers who have spent ten
days of study and play at the 'Farm

While the lectures and demonstra
tions have entered about the judging
and care of live stock and its place
on the farm, other farm problems
havo been treated and the aim of
Secretary Thomas Cooper of the Bet
ter Farming association was to give
each boy at the camp a broad view
ot the problems of 1he farm and so in
spire him to continue the work after
tho encampment had disbanded.
In ten days the boys received the
greater portion of the work usually
given in an agricultural school dur
ing a tern). The work was made
brief an concise and as intensely
practicable as possible. Actual dem
onstrations were, given wherever they
could be worked out in the short time
at the disposal of the instructors.
The fee of five dollars which each
Ox the boys paid when ho was enroll
ed 011 the camp list covered all of his
expenses for ten days. Military tents
ivith cots were furnished. Good, sub
stantial meals were served in the
mess tent and the camp fee included
admission to all the programs and
exhibits 0011 the Chautauqua grounds.
Before returning to their homes to
day each member of the encampment
was required to present his written
report to O. D. Center, who was in
charge of all tire work. The reports,

at length, "how the value which the

lems in farm management, the build
ing and use of silos and simple les
sons in veterinary remedies. A very
comprehensive lecture 0:1 plannig the
farm was give by .Mr. Center as the
final word to the young fanners.
The 11- boys who were in attend
ance came from various communities
in thirteen comities, all in the south
eastern portion of the state and trib
uary to the Valley Ciy chautauqua.
The boys were appoited mainly by the
county superintendents of schools and
the privilege of attending the en
campment came as the reward for
special wrork along agricultural lines.
A largo proportion of the lads pres
ent were winners in their county eorn
eotests or other farm cotests.
This is the second Farm Boys" En

North Dakota and is the first which
has ever been held in connection
with a chautauqua. A second en

HITTING THE HYPHEN.
On* Would Hardly Think the Uittl*
Mark Was 60 Important.
There is enough energy wasted in
placing the hyphen in "to-day," "to
night" and "to-morrow" every '.veek
day to haul a passenger train around
the world. It is claimed tbere are 200.
000.000 English writing people and
that tbey average to hyphenate these
words three times a day. Some may
not average to do tbis more than three
times a week and a few perbaps not
three times a month: others write those
words and place the hyphens in them
scores of times each day, especially
newspaper men. typewriters, authors,
business men, schooi children and tbe
Tbe acquiring of sufficient power
from making these hyphens each day
to propel a passenger train around the
world is figured on tbe basis that it
takes half an ounce of energy to make
tbe stroke either with pen or pencil
and more for a typewriter that repre
sents tbe hyphen, and tbis would total
2.190.000 pounds of energy, or suffi
cient for the train.
It takes an ounce of energy to make
the h.vpben on a typewriting machine
and three to make it on a typesetting
machine, and the statistician has fig
ured that typewriting and typesetting
machines alone take up sufficient en
ergy each day to propel a battleship

Al) these figures were compiled as
an argument against using the hyphen
in these words. Many people do not,
but the majority do. Those who are
working toward greater efficiency in
everything claim that the hyphen in
these words is not at all necessary and
should be discontinued by every one.
