The county averred that th.e shortage was discovered in 1800, but that the money disappeared during Mr. Maher's term ('94'95).

Bolley has issued a press bulletin in reply to many inquiries received at the agricultural college regarding the advisa bility of cutting frosted flax. The farmers have always cut frosted wheat as soon as possible and found that the wheat ma tured in the shock, but as the bolls of flax are on such a short stem they will not mature and the large amount of foliage on the stalk will mould if cut at the present green stage. The professor ad Vises strongly against cutting now, as the farmers have everything to gain and nothing to lose by giving the damaged crop a chance to mature if weather condi tlpns are favorable. The flax is such a hardy crop that in many cases the damage by frost is thought to have been over estimated. The professor advises that late flax be let alone unless all the stalk seems to -have been withered by the frost. The ninth district legislative caucuses were held last evening and selected dele gates favorable to the nomination of Lynch, Wall and Baker to the house. Senator Lewis holds over. The ticket had no opposition and is regarded as in the nature of a compromise and indicates har mony in local politics. The legislative convention will probably nominate the men by acclamation. Under the last ap portionment Fargo gets three members of the house instead of two, and the dis trict remains the same. Ed Welch was arrested with twenty-five pounds of lead pieces the size of a nickel. He was turned over to the United States authorities as a possible counterfeiter, and will have a hearing to-morrow.

He came from the west and is thought to have been playing the machines. SALEM, S. DThe city officials have served notice on saloon keepers that they must close on Sunday or stand prosecu tion.
