The White Man's Burden.
Take up tlie white man's burden,
Wilde through the drifted snow,
While winter's breezes chill you
And through jour whiskers blow
Head every advertisement
At morning. night and noon,
For nioviutr time is coming-
May 1 will be here soon.
Take up the white man's burden.
Climb stairs until you faint
lie shown through dark apartments
That smell of must and naint
You wont lind one that suits you.
There's something it will lack.
And though you say you'll do so,
You know you wont come back.
Think of the savage people
Who dwell across the seas
ID bungalows of bamboo
And in palm leaf tepees
They do not have to hustle
For some place to reside.
Or give up "ten" whenever
Their household takes a ride.
Take up the white man's burden,
You pale-faced sons of guna,
And spend your hours of leisure
In weary, fruitless runs.
Then seek out some vast warehouse
Where furniture is stored,
Dump yours into its caverns
And go and hire your board.

Petition Signed by Prominent
Citizens Believing It to
be a Good Thing.
The following petition is being ciroul
lated and has been signed by all the
business men of Jamestown:
"We, the undersigned residents of
Jamestown, N. D., and immediate vi
cinity believing it to be for the best
interests of Jamestown and the mutual
benefit of the Soo railway company and
ourselves, for the said oompany to build
its line of railroad into Jamestown, do
hereby promise to use all honorable
means to influence said company as
"To thafr end we promise to meet at
the Armory, Saturday evening at eight
o'olook to oonsider the ways and means."
The meeting will suerly be well at
tended. A great deal of interest has
been aroused and it seems to be the gen
eral opinion that the Soo oompany
should be persuaded to extend the line
from Forman to Jamestown.
The Alert: Interest is increasing
hourly in hops of securing to Jamestown
a competing line of transportation.
Usually the farmers are so conservative
that it is diffioult to arouse tbeir inter
est, but in this oase they have taken the
initiative and those to the
intense in their activity. It is 75 miles
to Forman on a bee line, Griswold being
on the line, and the farmers around there
are humming, also around Clark City
That there should be any opposition
is unaccountable, for it is an axiom that
competing lineb make the town, scarcely
any interest being injured. When a
oompeting railroad reaohes Jamestown
and the roads give the low freight rates
usually conceded to wholesale houses at
suoh points, there will be wholesale
houses opening up right here without

enough for farm work. Harrowing and

plenty of moisture in the soil, and the
prospeot is for a larger acreage seeded
than ever in this part of the state. A
good deal of spring plowing remains to
be done, but the season in Nortb Da

LATTER DAY fllRACLE
Could Not Dress or Undress
Herself tor Four Years.
Was Unable to Raise Her Hands to
Her Head. But Now She Does
Up Her Own Hair.
Poplar City, 111., April 11.—The
people here are all talking of the re
markable case of Mrs. J. 8. Murdock,
wbo has been brought from sickness of
long duration to good health. They re
gard it as nothing short of a miraole.
But a short time ago they knew her as a
frail, helpless, suffering woman. Now
they see in her a most wonderful change.
Her suffering is over, she is rapidly
regaining her lost strength and she is
able to help herself. Life was formerly
a burden, now it is a pleasure to bsr.
Mr. Murdock, speaking of the case, said:
"My wife was for four years unable to
raise her hands to her head, and could
not dress or undress herself without aid.
She was in oonstant misery. Nothing
that she took for her trouble helped her
until one day I brought home two boxes
of Dodd's Kidney Pills, whioh had been
highly recommended by persons who had
cured themselves of kidney diseases with
it. After she bad taken the first box
she was able to raise her hands to her
head and twist her hair. She is able to
dress herself and perform household
duties, and lifo bas again taken on a
bright hue for her. It is certainly a
miraole, and Dodd's Kidney Pills are
responsible for it."
Every form of Kidney Disease is per
manently oured by Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This great remedy has never been baffled.
It has cured hundreds after they have
been given up by the dootors to die.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are sold by drug
