That dairying can be carried on
with profit and without inconveni
ence on the average farm is shown
by the experience of John M. Miller,
a farmer Hiving near Bottineau, N.
D. The Bottineau Gourant says that
five dairy cows have paid Mr. Mil
ler a profit during the past year of
81.83 daily. From the product of
the five cows 1300 pounds of butter
was made, which sold for $337.60.
Ho. also raised five calves, which
sold for $75. Ten hogs, milk fed,
were also raised on the milk of the
five cows and they are worth $200.
Butter used on the farm is valued
at $62.40, making a total of $665 for
the year, and this in addition to the

THE NEW CITY CHARTER
The voters of Warren are busy
studying the provisions of the new
city charter which is to be voted on
at the special election to be held on
Monday next, March 3. The charter
commission, which has prepared the
document, consists of W. O. Brag
gans, O. H. Taralseth, C. E. Lund
quist, G. S. Waltam, C. L. Spaulding,
L. M. Olson, A. G. Swandby, L. Lam
berson, W. R. Haney, C. Wittensten,
W. F. Powell, C. A. Nelson and H. M.
Swanson, and these gentlemen have
no doubt given a great deal of
thought and study to the framing of
the charter. The bulk of the work,
however, has been done by W. O.
Braggans, who is a* lawyer and also
well versed in municipal affairs. It
has been the honest endeavor of the
commission to produce an instru
ment under which the city may de
velop and grow without the handi
caps found in the old charter.
Whether*they have succeeded whol
ly is not so easy to tell. There are
some excellent' things in the new
-charter and some, perhaps, that are
not so good. A perfect city charter
has not been written yet, and never
will be. On the whole, the new
charter is very conservative and
follows the old charter to a large
extent. We, for one, would have
been pleased to see the commission,
strike out more boldly and on more
original lines, but then it is well to
remember that innovations and re
forms in municipal government, like
in all other matters, better come
slowly. We believe that the new
charter is an improvement on the
old and for that reason favor its
adoption. Especially will it enable
the city to make necessary public
improvements and also to manage
the eelctric light plant in a more
Now that teacher, has her flock of
child faces about her, their success
or failure so dependent on the way
the little hearts or minds are inclin
ed at school, it is pertinent to make
some remarks about tasks that need
special emphasis. l:
You don't hear much said about
penmanship just now. When doc
tors of philosophy and bachelors of
science send out letters scarcely
distinguishable from bird tracks, it
may not be considered important
that children should team to write.
Then too, there is the typewriter.
A few years ago any seeker for a
ob had to make his application in
Iiis own handwriting. The employ
er who had to' use a magnifying
glass plus a capacity for detective
work to decipher a letter was riot
much impressed by flowery testi
monials from friends.
Now wJien you ask for a position,
you quite likely use a machine that
covers up the deficiencies of your
handwriting., You perhaps think
that penmanship is a lost art, ust
fu! to bookeepers, but not essential
for business men.
Nevertheless, if you should make
a census of the number of type
writing machines in this town, you
probably would not find more than
one to a hundred of population. The
rest of us must still use the imple
ments nature gave us, plus the best
pen and ink of our daddies. if

TWO VIEWS OF IMPEACHMENT
The conviction of Judge Robert

Gourt is only the third case of r.-jc-
cessful impeachment proceedings
in the United States in a period of
A. method of reaching public offi
cials that only wins once in 40 years
is of course not efficient. Probably
one great reason for this failure
has been the older view of the na
ture of, impeachment proceedings.
The only impeachable offences by
the constitution are "treason, brib
ery and other high crimes and mis
demeanors''. During the formation
of the constitution there was a
strong effort made to broaden the
ground for such removal.
Amendments were introduced
that would have permitted removal
for "malpractice and neglect of du
ty" or for "maladministration."
Both these amendments were beat
en. James Madison spoke against
one of them on the ground that it
would create a "tenure of office at
the will of the Senate."
The difference of opinion thus
disclosed has persisted to the pres
ent day. One school of constitution
al lawyers has argued that im
peachment is possible only for such
crimes as one could be criminally
indicted for. Others have placed
a more elastic interpretation there
on, and have held that it applied to
a wide range of action detrimental
to the essential principles of gov
ernment. This idea has been recog
nized in the constitutions of many
of the states, but not in the United
Farmer Ignoramus on Corn
Why can we not raise as big crops
on our lands as we did 25 or 30
years ago when the land was new?
We can .and we do. But (there is a
"but" to it) we cannot do it by rais
ing wheat or other small grain con
tinuously. There is only one way
we can do it and that is by raising
corn and stock. We can raise corn
here, as has been proven again and
again for a number of years." Ripe
corn at that. But.we do not raise
corn for the ears alone. The stalks
and ears combined make the best
and cheapest feed for stock known.
It is no exaggeration to say that 10
or 15 acres of corn, planted right
and taken care of ,is equal in feed
ing value -to 50 to 60 acres of tame
hay. Tame hay in this country
does not average one ton to the
acre, while cornwell, there is
hardly any limit to the amount you
can raise on an acre if you have the

Another good thing about corn is
that it helps you cultivate or plow
your fields. The roots will dig in
'3 or 4 feet and loosen the.ground
underneath, making it easier for the
moisture and sunshine to work on,

that is in the air and keep it. Corn
ground can be plowed much deeper
than other ground and will pack
'better after it is plowed deep. Plow

loosens up the soil too much and no

CLEANING AND GRADING OATS.
Seed oats should be ^carefully
(creened and graded before sowing.
This work Is ordinarily done with the
niill, the light oats and some of the
trash being taken out by a current, of
air, while the small oats and most of
the weed seeds are removed by means
of screens. 'The process should take
put one-third or One-fourth of the oats,
but if the %eed la very light a much
larger proportion should be removed.
Many of the small, light oats will not
jgerminate at all, while others produce
jweak plants, which materially reduce
(the yield. Screening also greatly re
duces the proportion, of weed seed,
thus preventing the spread of weeds
jand further favoring the growth of
the oat crop*
