"There are fifteen or twenty of

running wide open in this city,"
remarked an officer to an
man the other day.
"Then, why don't you close
them," the officer was asked by
the reporter. "Yes, but that is
another matter." The officer
wishes to do his duty in this
matter, we know, but it would
be folly to cause the arrest of
anyone until he was certain that
there was sufficient evidence to

Minot is a growing city and
naturally such places will exist
here perhaps for all time to come.
But if the laws are enforced, we
can make it pretty hot for the
law-breakers and much of the
degrading business will cease. If
such business is tolerated here at
all, it should be confined to one
portion of the city and not scat
tered among the best residence
portions of the city.

Three thousand two hundred
head of western cattle were on
this week's market and t}ieir dis
position was effected at compar
atively better values than any
other class of cattle received, say
Sinclair, (jillett & Co., Live Stock
Commission Merchants of Chi
cago, in a special letter to the
While last week witnessed the open
ing of the western grass cattle season,
this week practically marked the inau
guration of the marketward movement,
3,'100 being received during the week.
Monday's supply of 2,OUO head, the larg
est supply for any one day thus far and
comprising cattle from Montana, Wyom
ing, Colorado and North Dakota, found
a very satisfactory market, beef values
ranging from firstname.lastname@example.org that day, the
former being for tail-end sorts. While
the quality of these cattle was consid
ered generally good, they lacked the top
kinds, such as came last week, but tops
as compared with Texans sold on Mon
day's market, were 25c higher. Tues
day's supply waslimited, but outlet good.
North Dakota beeves reaching 84.90,
cows bringing around $4.25, feeders $3.65
and heifers $3.50. The heifers, however,
were of only fair quality and lacked
flesh. Wednesday's supply of only 325
head was of an inferior grade and light
and while trade was slow, values re
mained nominally steady, 114 feeders of
1150-lb weights selling at $3.90. Forty
loads from Montana and Wyoming ar
rived Thursday. Trade was active and
a big drove of Montanians were sold at
$4.65, cows selling around 83.90 and
heifers up to 84.J.0.
We do not anticipate any heavy mar
keting of western cattle until the later
half of August. This will give the grow
ing corn crop an opportunity to still fur
ther advance, and if tne condition at
present can be taken as an index to what
is to follow, a large supply of corn is in
sight for this fall, especially when it is
considered that the acreage this year has
beeD considerably increased. Very few
native feeders have as yet stocked their
feed lots for the coming fall and winter,
consequently, we look for an improved
trade in stockers and feeders as soon as
the bulk begin to arrive.
We wish to caution western cattle
shippers against the senseless and un
businesslike method of crowding 75 per
cent of the week's supply on Monday's
and Wednesday's markets. Buying ex
cessive supplies of cattle, even at a sharp
decline, does not result favorably to the
packer, and are almost certain to be fol
lowed by a congested outlet the follow
ing day. Native feeders had gradually
drifted into the practice, and thereby
sacrificed thousands of dollars. Receipts
thus far from western territory have
been evenly distributed and if range cat
tlemen can be induced to follow the five
day plan, it will undoubtedly result in a
profit to them. Buyers favor it, and
there is no plausible reason why we
should not have as good a market on
the offdays as on Monday's and Wednes
day's. Prospects for the season are gocd

"Talk about queer cases," a
local undertaker remarked the
other aay. "I don't ever expect
to see suqh a queer case again.
I refer to one Spider, a book
keeper from the east, who came
to Minot long years ago to get
away from the temptations of
the city. The fellow had a terri
ble liquor liabit, and fought the
demon hard, but occasionally he
would let it get the better of
him. At such times he would
make tor the country. Once
when under its Satanic influence
be went away up the river to the
McKinney country, and a few
days later was brought back
dead. Although he had been
dead for two days his bod}' was
as limp as a wet rag and he
looked as natural as life. We
laid him out, but many thought
he was not dead. I remember
two old-time doctors, to make
sure that he was dead, made a
post mortem examination, and
he was sure enough gone when
they got through with him."
