ranch land, any amount of hich I have for
sale both in large and small tracts.
Two Large Ranch Properties
Among the many ranches which I have listed
1 will make a special mention of two of the fin
est properties in this state One is known as the
Amenia Live Stock
situated .Eight miles west of Edmunds, in Stuts
man County on the Jamestown & Northern
Branch of the Northern Pacific road. This
property consists of about 16,000 acres of land
which has an abundance of spring water on
various parts of the tract, any amount of fine
hay, and two fine sets of buildings, with water
flowing through each from living springs. This
ranch is capable of maintaining 40,000 head of
sheep, or a proportionate number of cattle or
horses. The other ranch is known as the
situated on the Soo road, at Armstrong, in Em
mons County. This ranch has, properly speak
ing, three sets of buildings about 20 miles of
wire fence, sprirgs in abundance on the range.
Buildings all modern and up-to-date, telephone
connections with Bismarck and Linton and
about 1,500 acres of the finest hay land in the
state. There are about 6,000 acres in the tract.

THE CIVIL SERVICE COMMIS
SION OFFERS SOME GOOD
PLACES TO MEN WHO CAN
MEET THE REQUIREMENTS.
The first examination to secure elig
ible* for positions in the government
service at the Isthmus of Panama will
be held at different places in every
state in the union Jan. 18. The
places designated for the holding of
the examinations in Noith Dakota
are Fargo, Grand Forks and Pembina.
fiy his order of Nov. 15, President
Roosevelt placed the employes of the
Isthmian canal commission under the
provision of the civil service act and
rules, except persons employed mere
ly as laborers, persons whose appaint
ments are confirmed by the senate
and engineers detaled from the army.
The number of employes needed in
the many branches of the work at
the isthmus, has not been indelintely
announced as yet, and the first •ex
amination is to secure eligibles from
which to select a limited number for
the positions of clerks, bookkeepers,
timekeepers, assistant engineers,
instrument men, level men, lodmen,
chain men, helpers, surgeons, phy
sicians, pharmacist s, hospital internes
and trained nurses. Inforaation

The construction of the Panama
Canal n.ay extend throughout a time
period of eight or more years, accord
ing to the details of the project vet
to be adopted. This time estimate
is from the report of the last Isth
mian Canal Commission.
The civil service of the Isthmian
Canal Commission offers excellent
opportunities to qualified persons,
both in the matter of salaries and
promotion. Under the operation of
the civil service law it is contem
plated that promotion will be made
upon the basis of merit from the
lower to the higher position.
Medical attendance, medicines and
care at hospitals when sick, are fur
nished to the employes of the Isth
mian Canal Commission without
cost. Well equipped hospitals will be
maintained at Ancon, adjacent to
Panama and at Colon.
meritorious cases sick leave on
pay may be allowed, in addition to
the regular leave of absence, not to
exceed thirty days for employe* who
are from the United States, or fifteen
days for employes who are residents
of the isthmus.
The Isthmian Canal Commission
furnishes quarters to its American
employes, or at its option in lieu

tentatively been fixed at 8 per cent

The employes of the Isthmian
Canal Commission are allowed six
weeks' leave of absence annually on
full pay. This leave of absence is
not granted until after eight months
of satisfactory service. In visiting
the United States on leave, employes
and members of their immediate
families are granted special rates to
the above named ports. (The pre
vailing soecial rates are $25 between
New York or New Orleans and

Manager Graves of the local tele
phone office says that business has in
creased here to such an extent that he
has received plans and specifications
for,a new cable for this city. A great
many of the wires that arc now strung
singly, will be taken down, and new
wires enclosed in the cable, which
will remove the annoyance of buzzing,
and cross talk now prevelent on the
wires throughout the city. This
work will be done as soon as possible.
The capacity of the Jamestown
switch boards has again been reached,
and material for 60 more new drops
has been ordered, which will (accom
modate about 250 more telephones.
When the number of 'phones that are
now asked for are installed, together
with those already in operation, there
will be 321 'phones, and the uew drops
will make as above said, an additional
capacitv of 250.
There is little doubt but what the
company will extend the line from
Jamestown to Hismarck this summer,
as part of the plans and specifications
for the work have already been made.
Manager Graves is much interested
in securing rural telephone service
from Jamestown to Spiritwood Lake,
and is taking the matter up with
Jamestown business men who have
cottages at the lake and who are there
frequently also with farmers along
the line of the route. A station could
be put in at the post office at Fried,
and there will be a station also at the
lake, and the line would accommodate
a great many farmers between the
lake and the city. Mr. Graves says
that the cost of such aline would be
about $1,200, and that the expense of
the instrument for the farmer would
be 75c a month. The installation of
the phone would cost nothing, and all
the subscriber would pay besides the
rent of the phone, would be the
amount he subscribed for the building
of the line. A number of parties in
terested in lands and in Jamestown
business circles are favoring the pro
ject, and it is believed that it can be
put through. There is a line being
extended from Wimbledon, which is
also expected to reach the lake. The
Northwestern Company has a carload
of new poles, and expects to 'mild ad
ditional lines in the city soon.
Manager Graves is also of the opin
ion that the gap between Buchanan
and Melville will be closed shortly,
and it will not be very long before
Jamestown will be in complete com
munication with all parts of the state,
north, south, east and west.
WE ATIIER DATA AN
The North Dakota crop and weath
er service bulletin for November
shows that the monthly precipitation
was .90 or .58 below normal, and that
the greatest amount was at James
town, .55 of an inch. The month was
considerable warmer than usual, the
mean being 12 degrees above normal,
and was with one exception the high
est November mean in 13 years. The
precipitation also was the lowest on
record for the past 13 years, and over
half an inch below normxt.
The state weather bureau comments
on the long range weather forecastslof
certain so called scientific persons.
The bulletin says on this subject:
A study of these forcasts and a
comparison of them with the actual
weather conditions will convince any
person, however biased, that at the
best they are only guesses, and if fol
lowed up by those who are really in
terested in theweathor, will be likely
to do more harm than good. It may
be safely stated that there is no science
or method known at present by which
the weather may be predicted for a
much longer period than thirty-six
hours in advance, and even then the
Weather Bureau official, with a
knowledge of the conditions actually
taking place in every part of the coun
try each twelve hours, aided not only
by the result of other persons' study,
but by long years of experience, can
not always forecast the coming con
ditions for that period which shows
the utter inability of any person to
foretell the weather for more than a
month in advance.

Jamestown ladies, left an estate of
