Agriculture a New Places.
The success of the modern farmer in
difficult places is one of the wonders of
our age. Alaska, for instance, com
monly considered a land for only min
ing and fishing, is now yielding fairly
good returns from cultivation along
special lines. Western Montana, form
erly a desert land, will produce more
bushels of wheat to the acre, when
under irrigation, than Minnesota or
Iowa ever thought of yielding. For
the same money, Golden Grain Belt
beer will do more to make the average
man strong and healthy than bread
and meat, and the man or woman with
weak digestion finds it a tonic of the
greatest value. Order of your nearest

proof of the enormous business being

The Page Concert Entertainment.
The entertainment given at the
opera house last Friday night by the
Page Concert Co., was patronized by a
very good house, considering the
weather. The company consisted of a
quartette of two mandolins, violincello
and harp, and the program was made
up of both classical and popular selec
tions. The harp solos by Lautelle, the
violincello solo by Miss McDonald, and
the mandolin solo by Eugene Page,
were strong musical numbers and were
rendered in a very artistic manner.
The overture "Th Bridal Rose" by
the quartette was a masterful rendition.
The quartette was to have played
Faust's Fantasie but substituted "Th
Holy City" which has been profaned
and dragged down from sublime
heights to the gutter by so many
vaudeville performances. However,
the beauty of the classical production
was strongly portrayed. Miss Bing
ham gave a scene from "The Christian"
in which she easily demonstrated her
powers as a good reader, but the in
tensely dramatic portrayal of a scene
from that popular book, sufficed sans
encore, and the balance of Miss Bing
ham's selections were all very funny
and there you have it. The mandolin
selections by Mr. Page were marvelous
manipulations. There is something
mechanical about a mandolin that bars
it from fellowship with the violin, and
'cello, but Mr. Page is certainly master
of the popular instrument. 'The^ter-
tainment was good throughout. There
was nothing cheap about it.
IMPROVED ON NATURE.
For A Point That Won a Lawsuit
A year or two after William McKln
ley had begun the practice of the law
at Canton, O., he distinguished himself
in a humorous fashion in one of his
first successful cases. As often hap
pens in court, the humor was not mere
ly for the sake of the joke, but for seri
ous purpose. Mr. Edward T. Roe in
"The Life Work of William McKmley"
tells the story
The case was a suit against a sur
geon, whom the plaintiff charged with
having set his leg so badly that it was
bowed. McKinley defended the sur
geon and found himself pitted against
John McSweeney, one of the most bril
liant lawyers of the Ohio bar.
McSweeney brought his client Into
court and had him expose the injured
limb to the jury. It was very crooked,
and the case looked bad for the sur
geon. But McKinley had both his syes
open, as usual, and fixed them keenly
on the other man's leg.
As soon as the plaintiff was turned
over to him he asked that the other leg
should also be bared. The plaintiff and
McSweeney objected vigorously, but
the judge ordered it done. Then it ap
peared that his second leg was still
more crooked than that which the sur
geon had set.
"My client seems
havee done better
McKinleyt.h "and I move that the
suit be dismissed, with a recommenda
tion to the plaintiff that he have the
other leg broken and then set by the
surgeon who set the first one."
Heedlessness may not be one of the
seven deadly sins, but could the perpe
trator oftener witness the result of his
act a whole list of casualties would be
come obsolete. A little Italian boy,
lightly clad, was recently helping to
sort out bottles from a city dump heap.
In trying to remove a stopper from a
condensed milk jar he accidentally
broke the glass, and a powerful acid
poured down his side. The child fell
