There is considerable linal proof busi

of the county took out their second
papers yesterday. An eminent legal
authority says that the report pub

that it would be necessary to secure
second papers three months before
election in order to vote legally is un
true. The law, says the authority,
makes no such provision and a person
can secure his papers the day before
election and cast his ballot legally.
However, it is a good idea to secure
second papers as soon as possible and
avoid the rush.

when it arrived Friday from the
north. The train passed through a
hail storm when between Sheyenne

and train crew admit that it was the
most- fearful storm they had ever wit
nessed. Every window except two on
the west side of the coaches was brok

east was smashed. The hail dented
deep into the woodwork of the
sides of the coaches and cut the paint
from the roof. The storm came from
the northwest and was three miles in
width. The amount of damage to
property and crops is reported to have
been very large.
The passengers on the train took
refuge wherever possible to escape
from the hail and broken glass, some
going into the baggage car. It was
an experience that few of them care
to have repeated. None were injured.
