Mr. Norman, representing the Great
Northern Railway Company, is in the
city today for the purpose of locating
two Hill demonstration farms for
next year in this vicinity. We trust
the gentleman was able to make the
necessary arrangements, as these
farms furnish valuable object lessons
to all farmers in their immediate vi
cinity. The fact that the railway
company interests itself in efforts to
secure better farming methods, and
is willing to spend money with this
purpose in view, shows the import
ance of the farmer's calling and
should be an incentive to all farmers
to adopt up-to-date methods.
Carl Holm, son of Judge P. H.
Holm, left yesterday for Missoula,

Warren High School and from the
Commercial department of North Star
College. Now he has gone forth to
make his own way in the world and
his many friends here wish him suc
cess. Carl is a good boy and being
also well equipped with education
and training for a business career, he
will undoubtedly make his mark in
the great west with its boundless op
P. B.^MaJberg has been in from Ex

John O. Sorum, candidate for sher
iff on the democratic ticket, is in the
city today calling on our people in
the interest of his candidacy. He for
merly served as a county commission
er from the eastern end of the coun

W. T. McAltioner, who was the pas
tor of the Presbyterian church in this
city twenty-five years ago, is now at
the Warren hospital a sufferer from
paralysis. He has been out of the
ministry many years on account of
failing health, and lately has been
staying on a farm in Kittson county.
His first child was born while he was
engaged in the ministry here. /Many
of the early settlers will no doubt re
member the unfortunate man.
The weather appears at last to
have become settled anci threshing
has been resumed in dead earnest.
This week so far we have enjoyed a
real Indian summer, and, let us hope,
that this kind of weather may keep
up for .some weeks yet. There is a
great deal of farm work that should
be done before winter sets in. Owing
to the backward weather, the whole
month of September was nearly wast
ed, as far as farm work is concerned.
John Hageman, who lived on a
farm in town of Comistock in the ear
ly days, and who left these parts
many years ago, arrived last Friday
from Switzerland, looking to be an
entirely different man 'from the sim
ple farmer he was then. He is now
very wealthy and reputed to be a mil
lionaire. After getting bankrupt
farming hero he left for Edmonton,
Canada, where he settled on a piece
of land close to Edmonton and began
farming and dealing in real estate.
Fortune smiled on him from the start.
Receni^r he sold part of his holdings,
now practically within the city limits
for $850,000 and then went on a trip
to the old country with his wife and
two children. After a visit with
friends in Comstock they will pro
ceed to their home in Edmonton.
Nels Roan, who has been engaged
in farming in this vicinity for more
than a quarter of a century, has sold
his fine farm south \X. townv to Gust
Peterson of Brislet, and will remove
with his family to Kandiyohi county,
where he has bought a smaller farm
in a very pleasant neighborhood near
Long Lake, in said county Their
daughter', Miss Mabel Roan, who is a
teacher, has secured the school in
the district where the new home is lo
cated and has already gone there to
enter upon her work and Mr. and
Mrs. Roan will leave for Kandiyohi
county as soon as they have settled
their business affairs here. This com
munity regrets very much to have
these excellent people move away, but
'what is our loss is Kandiyohi county's
gain. May they enjoy more conge
nial and carefree days on the smaller
farm which they go to till than it was
possible for them to have on the
large farm here.

H. WOOD, Cashier
Who are You?
Did you ever notice with how much respect is held the
young man with a bank account? He Is in an entirely
different class from the young fellow who carries his
money in his pocket. The one is known as a conservative
young business man whose prospects for success are
quite evident. Th* other is considered a spend-thrift
who has yet the principles of industry to learn. Young
man, half your success is assured the moment you open
a bank account. There will be the changing point in your
career. There's where you cease to be the "kid" and
enter the "young business man" class. Here you are no
longer Sam Smith's boy, but the younger Mr. Smith.
Come in and let us start you on the road to success.
