County Surveyor H. N. Cooper and
M. Bennett, of Canton, were here the
first of the week surveying and get
ting the necessary figures to make a
profile showing the amount of fall
that could be secured in running a
sewer north from town into Beaver
creek, on the Warren farm. Although
the resultant figures have not been
given out, it is estimated that the
fall from Main street to the creek is
nearly 20 feet In a distance of about
one and a quarter milqp. This will be
ample lall for a sewer, and as most of
the citizens of the town are in favor
of a drainage system, we predict that
it will be installed.

What Would He Do Next?
If any of the mad men of Europe
should challenge us, our nation would
be justified in saying, "No we will not
tight with you: we have 100,000,000
people to guard, we have countless
ideals to preserve, and we will not
wallow in the mud of war with you."
—William J. Bryan.
Wo would be justified in answering
that way, but that wouldn't save the
madman from proceeding forthwith
to wallow us in the mud of war, and
making this nation tributary to him,
destroying our countless ideals and
exposing to a madman's fury and lust
100,000,000 people. The proper way to
answer such a madman and the pro
per way to handle such a madman
are entirely different. Under Bryan's
policy of unprepardness how would he
handle madmen who refused to listen
to polite language'?— [S. C. Tribune.
Cheap Land And Huge Crops—That
Is What the Northwest Offers
The Great Northwest—North and
South Dakota, Montana and Wash
ington—beckon. They offer unlimit
ed opportunities to men of limited
means. The Northwest is now living
In an era of rapid development and
progress that will double and treble
land values within the next few years.
Several things point to this—the
opening up of the world's markets,
the growth of western cities, and the
extension of railway lines into fine
agricultural territory hitherto out of
But the greatest proof is the won
derful fertility of the Northwest
which shows itself in the. bountiful
yields of all crops, also indicated by
Montana's achievements at the San
Francisco Fair, where she led the
world in the number of agricultural
prizes won.
If you have any land hunger if
you want a good farm for yourself or
for your boy, investigate this new
country now. The best land opport
unities are in the territory recently
opened for settlement by the Coast
extension of the Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul Railway, To enable those
interested to look over this territory,
the "Milwaukee Road" has provided
round-trip homeseekers excursions at
very low fares on the first and third
Tuesdays of every month.
Send for literature, read it carefully
then buy a low fare ticket and make
a personal inspection of this territory.
For literature and full information
apply to the local "Milwaukee" agent
or write to Geo. B. Haynes, General
Passenger Agent, Chicago.
