C. GEO. L. EMM ILL, NELSON. Pres. Secretary. Tennessee's Partner. This old favorite play was present ed Monday night as the "opener" by the Noble Company, and it was re ceived with every evidence of pleas ure by a line audience.. No dramatic company ever receives such a warm welcome in Canton as the Nobles and Warren Noble himself is a genuine favorite. When the Nobles bill a town the people know that they are going to get something tirst class, something new, something original and modern in stage effect. They know that whatever Warren Noble puts on the boards will be clean and morally uplifting. His company is always composed of artists. This year he has the old favorites, O. H. and Gussie Johnstone, and the Jolm stones are as popular as Warren Noble himself. O. H. Johnstone is the business manager and he's a good one—knows everybody and everybody likes him. As "Gee Whittaker Ilay'" in Tennessee's Partner, he is at the top of the ladder. He keeps the whole house listening for 'S7 when he did tilings. Johnstone is an all'round good actor, natural, easy and of good voice. Gussie Johnstone is also a Canton favorite and was greeted with a round of applause when she made her appearance Monday night. As Tennessee Kent she won merited ap plause and played the part exceeding ly well, bringing tears to the eyes of nearly every one in the house, so real istic was her sorrow when Caleb Swan told her of her father's death. Bertha Bell as Nettie Bice, Hugo Meyers as Asa Bice, Helen Alexander as Mrs. Hay, G. H.Gordon as Tom Romaine, C. Bangs and Tom Barth, all won credit for their good work. At the conclusion of the engage ment here on Wednesday evening, a handsome gold watch was awarded to Hans Voss, who held the lucky ticket. Mrs. Nash went to Hawarden Wed nesday. A light snow fell Thursday fore noon. Theodore Thompson went over to Tyndall on business.

There are several reasons why those who are planning to make that trip to North Dakota to get some of that cheap land, should not wait much longer, but should take advantage of this in lit! and open winter and go soon. J. B. Slosson, the Win. II. Brown Co's Representative, has been taking men to North Dakota all winter and lists had well pleased customers as the result of each trip. Every week there are from six to fifteen parties of Land-Seekers reach ing the Company's, ottlces in Mandan and llichardton. North Dakota, and the choices are going very fast, and those who expect to get a free Home stead adjoining their lands, must not delay or they will he disappointed, for at the rate they are going, it is only a question of a short, time until the desirable quarters are taken. Land prices are advancing in that section, and Morton and Hettinger counties are tilling up with a good class of farmers who are producing from $10. to $25. an acre from their land. The prices still range from $10. to *i:i.r0 an acre for farming lands but they cannot remain at those figures long. Mr. Slosson has located over 40 peo ple during the past two months and th«*v are still going and compared with the vast territory which is covered by the Win. H. Brown Co., the emigration from this section is simply as a "drop in a bucket." Gilbert Satrang and S. O. Skart vedt have just returned from Hettin ger county and they report crowds still coining fast and that there is a great degree of satisfaction among the settlers there, and that a large force of N. P. lly. surveyors are now only a few miles from Mott, and headed right for that town and a new road is to be started sometime this year. They are glad that they struck out when they did for they have excellent locations near Mott, and "as good land as lays out of doors.In talk ing with the scores of other Can ton ites who have located there within the past year and a half, they all bear the same story that they are well satisfied and that a great future is before them and that the same feeling prevails among the 2500 people who have bought land in Morton and Hettinger counties, North Dakota, during the past two years and a half. Mr. Slosson says that he receives telegrams from Mnudaii, N. l., every few days and that the weather has been the same, practically, as here. Better go in and see him at his office, and let him show you his set of over 100 photographs of that country, and some simples of the grain the farmers raised up there last year, for it looks mighty nice.

WILL 6 CO.. BISMARCK. NORTH DAK. G. Skartvodt, Local Representative. Go Land Prices in North Dakota! The lands are still cheap—because it is anew country, and not as dense ly populated as the other states. But our district will tell another story, for the banner crops which we have been getting will make prices jump. Don't you want to jump before the lands do? Think of it! Land which will yield $10.00 to $25.00 an acre in wheat in the secgnd year isn't going to sell for less than $25.00, and some of it is selling for that now. When you think of the rich, new soil covered with thick grass, under laid with excellent veins of lignite coal, with plenty of good water, and sell ing for $8 to $1.'H an acre (one third cash and balance oil easy payments doesn't it make you want to come out and see the country, before the prices are boomed? If you could be there now—see the railroad surveyors hurrying through these lands, getting ready to push their road through and claim the excel lent business that is developing there. See the rivalry among them, for they know that the "early bird will get the worm," and the worm is a big. fat one too. if you could only see that as it is today you'd be in a big hurry to plant yourself right there. Then when the BIG JUMP comes you'll be among the independent ones and you'll wear the "smile that won't come off," and you'll have good reason for congratulating yourself because vou struck out at the proper time. Ilfm. Jfe. S/Sroum Co., of 131 La Salle St. Chicago, III., and Mandan and Richardton, North Dakota, present this opportunity to you. We own and control over 100,(WO acres of this rich land In Morion anil Hettinger counties, No. Dak., at the prices and terms above mentioned and can give you the chance of your life time if you will take it. .lust speak to the scores of people from Canton and vicinity who have already JUMPED and whom we have located in Morton and Llettinge counties, North Dakota, and see what they think about their investment. See if any of them want to sell out without a good round profit. See if they do not say that the country is making rapid strides forward that wiil soon bring them two or three times profit on their investment. We are not acting agents for anyone but own the land and can "deliver the goods" when we make a deal and can make prices and terms that are right, and that are a boon to the man of moderate means, who wants to IJC coine a land owner and be independent. Read the following testimonial of Mr. 'Wm, Woll of Lovington, 111., and see what lie thinks of buying North Dakota land in the winter time: .. Lovington, Illinois, January llth, 11KW' I left Lovington, 111., Dec. 18th, 1905, to see the 'North Dakota lands of the Wm. II. Brown Company, accompanied by the Company's Moultrie Coun ty representative. My eldest son, William, had already visited North Dakota with these gentlemen and his report was so favorable that 1 decided to buy land there if 1 liked the country. We left from Mandan and drove over considerable of Morton county for three days and I must say that we had fine weather and treatment. Both at Mrs. Ray Smith's and Mrs. Turnbull's we had every comfort in the way of good beds and plenty of the best to eat, though there were seven men in our party. 1 finally purchased .'120 acres adjoining my son's Quarter section ahd' tiled on a homestead of 100 acres, so that we now own a section of line land, 040 acres in all. 1 have rented" land in Illinois for a good many years and only by the hardest work have raised a family of nine children. I have nothing against Illinois, but 1 cannot afford to buy land at $125.00 to $150.00 an acre, and I could see no other way of doing anything for my family except by moving to a new couutry where the land is cheaper. The soil in this section of North Dakota is every bit as good as the best dirt in our Illinois corn belt. I talked with a good many farmers and they all liked the coun try and are doing well. One of them, Henry Cotner, came from ^sumption, Illinois, two years ago and is 88 years old. He looks like a man of 50. I am 57 years old and feel tine after my trip and am glad that my son and 1 own a mile square of this tine land, where I am going to move in the spring. I am FT Mr ki Very truly yours, -T 'M" !J. B. Slosson, tablitthed IN this citj and have treatment safe and without pain *5 i?! 1# .4/ Vvjaft t» Very respectfully, WM. WOLL. Same Kind. In addition to Wm^ Woll, Lovington, 111., whose letter we print, the fsllowing Illinois buyers of North Dakota land will give their impressions of the country from recent visits: W. T. Batty, John Bly, W. I. Bushart. Findlay J. C. Williamson, Arthur Morris Little, Rob't Mullen, W. A. Hiers, E. L. McClure, Edgar Tobias Rhodes, Sullivan, ctc. Write to any of these men. 1 That's the way they are going to North Dakota, and the. above is jjifljj)ly a fair sample of the way they feel after they have been tliere. I am making trips to Morton and Hettinger counties every week "or two, and the weather there is mild and pleasant, such as we are having here in South Dakota. Don't wait but join my next excursion and we will please: you. Come and see me at my office in Clanton and let me show you the ex cellent set of about 100 views of Morton and Hettinger counties and remem ber that the one who makes the JUMP NOW will count the greater proftts. .Traveling Representative.
