Trovnten, formerly owner and publisher of The Fram, of Fargo now engaged in marketing grain at Minneapolis for the equity exchange, stated that they are meeting with success in this effort for co-operative marketing at the terminals. "We sell lo the mills and to other cas'd buyers," said Mr. Trovaten, "and have no trouble at all in get ting a good market and we are band ling a large amount of grain. We handle grain for fanners' elevators under the auspices of the equity so ciet y . "We were fortunate in securing the services of George S. Loftus as saies manager. He is a wonder and is itoing a splendid work. Mr. Lof tus is the man who secured tin* re duction in sleeping ear rates through out ill«' United States. He also seem ed lower comma lit , rates and lias secured a fifteen per cent n due ion m express rates that c. ill go into effect soon. The fanners of North Dakota and theenlire northwest are to be congratulated that. In* has taken up tiiis matter of selling grain for co-operative societies." A man lately said, •'Excuse me," to a boy, and tin* boy nearly fainted. 1'eoplo are rarely polite to a hoy. If a woman is a slovenly house keeper; she knows it. She should al so know that the other women know , it, and roast Hu* life out of her. i Young people rarely "feel had;" it j is adults who get out of condition, I because they eat too much, and don* sleep enough. A child that kicks and screams, ! and holds its breath, may not lie a i good child; but it usually gets what i it wants.
